We use the finest local, organic, and sustainably produced ingredients. All fruits, nuts, vegetables, grains and flours are organic and sourced as locally as possible.

Very good dishes, most of the vegetable are from local farms in the area. Memu of Organic and gluten free plates are also GMO free.

Nice array of wines and appetizers - our meals were excellent, too. However, recommend noise dampening materials on ceiling or installing cozy booths to reduce cacophony of voices, glasses and dinnerware bouncing off the surfaces.

Ate there alone early on a Friday evening. Managed to get a table right away. The local grilled black cod on a cedar plank was good, but not great (maybe another dish would have excelled).

Gabe & crew continue to raise the bar on 5-star dining in a comfortable, welcoming, unpretentious setting. Hats off to the focus on local ingredients and the creativity we see with each visit. I don't have a favorite because it all has been so good--from the mussel app when in season, the planked salmon and the tasty wood fired pizzas!... More

Several local friends have said this is their favorite restaurant, so when friends from out of town came for a visit, we took them here. They felt the food and atmosphere were okay but my husband and I were very disappointed in the lack of variety in menu choices and in the the noisiness of the place. The outside seating... More

While Alder Wood Bistro may be one of the best rated restaurants in Sequim, when I compare it to other restaurants in this caliber and price range it has some good elements but fell a bit short on our expectations on both the flavor of the food and the value. The chef does try to add some unique elements and... More

We were out on Art Walk (1st Friday) and were told about Alder Wood Bistro. We were there at 5PM and it was very busy. They quickly seated us. My wife and I shared a pizza and I had a cup of soup. Awesome meal!!
