We had a most delightful and flavorful lunch at this fine restaurant. The hostess and wait person were delightful. When in Sequim, we will always eat at Alder Wood Bistro. The food is superb.

The perfect spot to stop for lunch after exploring the Dungeness spit! The menu was creative, the servers obviously enjoy their jobs, and the chef takes pride in presentation and quality locally-sourced ingredients. The heirloom tomato bisque with creme fraiche hit the spot on a chilly day with truffled french fries with a tasty aioli. Yum! Pleasant and unpretentious.

Second visit to Alder Wood Bistro (for dinner). Many locally sourced ingredients, impeccably prepared, without being pretentious or precious - emphasis on just really good food. Warm, friendly, approachable staff. Can you open a branch in the Seattle area please?

The food here is usually locally grown and the quality is excellent. The price is not for everyday dining!

I took my son and his wife to this restaurant one evening when I was in Seattle visiting them. All of us agreed every food item was fabulous. We ate outside, and the service was a bit slow. They were busy that evening, but it seemed those dining inside did better with service than we did outside. My halibut was... More

My girlfriend and I found this restaurant on our way to Port Angeles. Being big fans of the mussels we've had in France, we wanted to see how they rated here. Yum!! They were absolutely delicious, and the accompanying fries were perfection. Wines are reasonably priced, too. We enjoyed our lunch and the friendly service so much, we made a... More

My husband and I had the most incredible food at this charming restaurant. Fabulous service, and each bite was a delight. We started with the calamari, having eaten calamari all over the world we must say Gabe's is the best we have ever eaten, moist, tender and crumbed to perfection without any greasiness. The pickled peppers and greens topping this... More
