Following the advice of an online site, we landed here for dinner during the lavender festival. What a find! The waitress let us try a few different wines before settling on one we loved. Dinner was fabulous, and dessert out of this world. I'm not a big fan of flourless chocolate anything, except their version was out of this world!!... More

Excellent food. Creative dishes and presentation. Service a little weak. Make an effort to dine here. You won't be disappointed. Ask for outdoor seating if possible. Best on peninsula that we experienced.

We would not have found this out of the way restaurant without tripadvisor. The whole family found something great to eat. I had mussels for starters and barely soup and it was fantastic. If you are in sequim stop here and eat!!!

As I sat out in the garden with two long long time friends, we reminisced about the incredible meals we have shared at the Bistro over the past eight years! The evening was perfect, a warm night in the garden patio with live music in the background. Although it was mid week and the place was packed, the service was... More

We stayed in Sequim last week and of all the places this place was the most booked up. The food was good and very inventive. The mashed potatoes had buttermilk, the polenta had goat cheese, the salmon has chimmichuri and the meatloaf had bacon. The serves were really nice and well trained. On the way out every staff member we... More

We showed up without reservations, so had to wait about 30 minutes to get a table. Not to worry, the patio out front was peaceful and the wine we had while waiting was a great local offering. The wood-roasted vegetables were amazing - and the calamari salad was one of those unexpected treats. It sounded like it would be pretty... More

Ate here five years ago and knew we wanted to visit again this trip. I made a reservation before we left Atlanta for a busy Saturday night. When we got there we were seated quickly and our waitress was right there to answer any questions we might have. Unfortunately, they were already out of the salmon special so we had... More

Friends and I were in town for Lavender Festival and had heard about this place from Trip Advisor and locals. We definitely needed a reservation this particular weekend and were able to sit outside in the lovely courtyard garden. While I suspect its fine to sit inside, I think its a better experience being able to sit outside. The weather... More

Great food, if a bit overpriced. Slow service. But very accommodating. Do not miss the creme brulee!!

Over-hyped restaurant. The food I ordered for my daughter and I was quite average in taste, flavor and size, and way overpriced.
