My husband and I went to dinner at Alder Wood on a Saturday night and they completely blew our minds. Every single thing we ate, from the complimentary bread and gezpacho puree to the seasonal flan, was so delicious. We decided to share the mussels, calamari salad and steak frite from their summer menu. Every item was perfection. We couldn't... More

This was one of the best dining experiences we have ever had. The restaurant features local, organic ingredients and sustainably harvested seafood and only uses meat & poultry that is free-range with no hormones or antibiotics. Artisan wood-fired pizzas are also featured. The menu is also continually revised to feature the bounty of the Olympic Peninsula, with seasonally inspired daily... More

The service is wonderful and the food is always excellent. We have eaten here many times and we always get a wonderful meal from appetizers through dessert, and we always find a nice draft beer or glass of wine to go with the food. Our last visit was no exception to their excellence. I heartily suggest getting the fried duck... More

My friends and I were staying in Sequim overnight in order to be close to the Port Angeles ferry to Victoria. We had seen reviews that this was a good restaurant and were not disappointed. The food was delicious. We ordered salad and a pizza to share since it was late and we didn't want to eat a heavy meal.... More

We had dinner here twice because we loved the fresh seafood, which was delicious. We also enjoyed a friendly, knowledgeable and helpful staff.

My wife and I ate dinner here while staying in Sequim. We started with the Salmon ceviche which was excellent.... very mild, but flavorful. That was followed with salads (Pickled Beet and fig/rhubarb) which were exceptionally good. For the entree, my wife had a pizza (figs/chanterelle/bacon) and I had the smoked salmon carbonara. The pizza was one of the best... More

My husband and I ate here with my niece and her family while staying near Sequim for vacation. It was a real treat to have a delicious gluten-free meal for me and everyone else had wonderful meals. Our server was one of the owners and her husband is the chef. We are moving to Sequim next year and will probably... More

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!!!
