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!!

Having had a wonderful meal at another restaurant in Sequim the previous evening we were not sure if our second night would be as good. We need not have worried! Fortunately we had booked a table as the restaurant was heaving when we arrived. Seated after a short delay and we both had the excellent Meat Loaf with mashed potato... More

This is a great place for an intimate dinner! The place is small, but the food, service, and ambience are exceptional. We enjoy dining here for special occasions. The ingredients and food preparation are the best. We highly recommend this place. You will not be disappointed!

We have eaten here many times and have never been disappointed. We had an impromptu business dinner and all enjoyed their meals. Since I am allergic to seafood, I usually order their chicken or beef menu items and have never been disappointed - I absolutely love their salad with fresh greens, figs, and blue cheese -the large salad is large...

Treat yourself to this small, casual, special spot known for locally sourced and masterfully prepared dishes. They only serve dinner here, and often a reservation is needed because it is that good - and we locals know it! Several choices feature the wood fired oven such as roasted veggies, a pizza/flat bread or a juicy cut of meat. An elk... More

The restaurants in Sequim do not look like anything special except for the Alderwood, where I think I had dined several years ago. The variety of dishes on the menu is not great but the food is excelent.. Service was good considering the place was packed. Try it and you should not be disappointed.

We ate twice at alder wood and loved it both times. Perfect breads with a great lentil spread. A perfect salad with exquisitely fresh greens, apples, figs, and cheese with a light sherry vinaigrette. And the main courses were excellent : the cedar grilled salmon, the fungi flatbread, and the mussels with great fries. And the service, particularly Tanya, was... More

I and a friend walked in without reservations but we were luckily accommodated. We were referred by several businesses in the area and were starving. The place itself is a renovated home but nicely decorated and set up. It is a "cozy" atmosphere but everyone who patronizes this place seems quite friendly. I had the special of Cedar Planked Salmon,... More
