Wonderful place.

Good food. Friendly server. We planned to return, but we got distracted by all the good food on the Island.

We both enjoyed seafood dinners and all was prepared well. Dinners were more than $30 each so we were somewhat surprised that it would cost $4 extra to substitute potatoes for rice or $4 above the cost of an appetizer to have an extra plate so we could share the appetizer.

We had a very good dinner at New Leaf since we were able to get last minute reservations. All of the food was above average and the view, although across the street from the water, made the meal still more pleasant. Particular treat to have halibut since it's not often on menus on the east coast.

We ate here on our last night on Orcas, and were not disappointed. Both our meals were top notch, the staff was friendly, the service excellent, and the view to die for. They have a good wine list as well as a bar attached. There is a little outside dining area as well. The restaurant is itself attached to a... More

The wife and I ate outside at 6:00pm in mid-July. I got a little cool out, and the waitress offered her a blanket. Very nice. Also, the waitress did a great job helping us decide on a good meal. She didn't try to upsell us on a bunch of stuff we didn't need. That's a sign of good service. OH... More

The food at the New Leaf is without compare. Chef Steve is always on top of his game. We have never had even a mediocre let alone a bad meal there. The food is always prepared to perfection!

We had two meals here during our stay at the Outlook Inn. Breakfast was truly excellent. I loved my buttermilk pancakes with homemade sausage. Everything was very fresh. The dinner was not on the same level. It was busy, and reservations were definitely required. Service was good. Neither of our entrees was very good. My pork steak was overcooked compared... More

I took my husband here for his birthday while on Orcas. The food was delicious and we appreciated using local, seasonal ingredients. Service was perfect.

I enjoyed my spicy lamb burger and sampled the Lardon salad. The burger had a brioche bread and was very filling. I heard that the Lardon salad had too much dressing so be sure to specify light dressing or if possible on the side. I was in a party of seven and we didn't make reservations. We were squeezed in...
