Relaxed, comfortable atmosphere, wonderful selection of food. My seafood entrée was generous and fresh. Waitress was personable and we had a wonderful visit. I love a restaurant that allows you to linger without the pressure to move on. Visiting from out of town, I will return.

The Fountain has always been one of our favorites in PT, and this past week, our visitors from Seattle agreed that it is one of the best. We each ordered a different entree, including two from the specials board. My salmon was so sumptuous that I nearly licked the plate. The small venue can be intimidating, but waiting for a... More

We were referred to this by the winery in PT. We enjoyed a really nice dinner with interesting choices on the menu. A small place with about 10 tables so go early. Were told that a lot of locals frequent this and it isn't on the main street. We are real glad we went on a cool night and would... More

The Fountain Cafe is definitely worth a visit if you are in Port Townsend. The somewhat Italian-influenced menu has a good variety of offerings, and in our group of five, there wasn't one dish we didn't all love. The mussels and clams appetizer is delicious, fragrant and savoury. All our main courses were some type of pasta, each as tasty... More

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
