We had the lamb burger and the turkey reuben with a glass of wine each. Both were good but $50+ for lunch seemed a little on the expensive side.

The menu is eclectic with selections ranging from seafood to lamb and beef. The chef's creations are inventive and delicious. Service is friendly and the wine selection is expansive. Don't expect romantic views of the sound .. enjoy the food!

Ate here with my husband on a Sunday night. Apparently one of the other main downtown restaurants was unexpectedly closed so this place was packed. The seating area is quite small so if you are the least bit claustrophobic, you might want to eat elsewhere. The service was good as was the food (a little pricey though). Would definitely go...

In PT for the Kinetic Weekend and we happened upon this café for lunch! Delightful! Of course, we would have to have seafood as it is the freshest by the sea, right? So clam chowder and mussels steamed, a sandwich and we were good for the day! Nothing bad about this place- loved the ambience, food, and service!

Celebrating an eight year anniversary the Fountain Café is very romantic. The waitstaff was excellent. The chef was superb. Butter for the bread was soft and seasoned showing an eye for detail. Candlelight and a chocolate flourless tort with whip cream mint leaves and raspberry sauce was to die for accompanied by a ruby port.

Living here in Port Townsend, we sometimes take out local eateries for granted. We had not eaten at the Fountain for some time and decided to go there with a group of 6. With the size of the Fountain, we dominated the room. Definitely do not go without reservations. The food was fabulous. Had the rack of lamb and it... More

My friend and I originally were going to another restaurant, but it turned out to be a tad too pretentious for us. Luckily we continued up the street and discovered the Fountain Café. We could not have asked for a better experience for our first night in Port Townsend - great service, delicious food, and cold beer. The café provides... More

Between the Roasted Walnut and Gorgonzola Penne, the seafood stew, and a crab special, we all had thoroughly enjoyable meals. Excellent service as well. You can tell they take great pride in their food and presentation.

I have been to The Fountain Cafe many times. Each time has been a great experience. The restaurant is very small, so be sure to make a reservation or have patience if you have to wait. It is intimate (but not necessarily romantic -- though is certainly a nice date option) with good food and friendly servers. I have been... More

I get to Port Townsend infrequently but over the past five years have eaten here at least three times. The food is always outstanding...served hot and tasty. I love the chicken marsala...the best ever. My companions enjoyed their meals as well...one had the linguini and another the entree salad loaded with vegetables...each one loving their choice. The place is small... More
