Description: It's difficult to say what is most appealing about the Barking Frog - the food, the wine, the atmosphere. All of the above earned this casual bistro featuring country fresh Northwest cuisine rave reviews. Honors have included "Restaurant of the Year", "Most Innovative Wine List" and "Wine Grand Award" awards, presented by the Washington Wine Commission. Delectable dishes entice guests to linger in the light-filled dining room or to gather around the fireplace. While in the summer, lunch and dinner are served in the courtyard. Wine tasting in Fireside Cellars - Many wineries are open for public tastings, others are not. However, there is one place where you can relax with friends and fellow guests to taste the finest that Woodinville Wine Country has to offer - Fireside Cellars at Willows Lodge. Join us from 4PM-11PM Sunday-Thursday and 4PM-12AM Friday and Saturday.On weekends, the sweet smell of crepes fills the air as the Fireside Cellars is now open and offers both sweet and savory crepes along with oatmeal, pastries and your favorite coffee/espresso. Open Saturdays and Sundays from 8AM-1PM.

While staying at the Willows Lodge, our dinner plans had to include the Barking Frog. What a fantastic meal. Our server, Bill, was very knowledgable with the menu and ingredients for each dish. We sat close to the kitchen and he would display each dish he was taking to a table so we could get a look at the preparation.... More

I went with my wife to this place after visiting the Willows Lodge Spa. We were quite hungry and being vegetarians we were skeptical. The soup of the day and salad was great, we went for a second round. They couldn't accommodate the drinks we wanted so they gave us a better one for the same price :-). We shared... More

My husband and I had a date night here. Very nice beautiful place. Dress up a little if going in the evening especially! Service is outstanding. Food is delicious. Their onion rings are to die for (I know, who would of thought? They are smokey tasting) Hard to get reservations in the evening...so call a week or so in advance... More

This was the best eggs benedict I've ever eaten. I had the classic, even the english muffins are made right there. They have beautiful gardens to walk through, before or after you meal. Everything was excellent, we'll definitely return.

I came here with my sister, my mom, and one of my moms friends. We are visiting because my sister has an internship at Microsoft. The menu made us all feel pretty uncultured because we haven't heard of a lot of things that were on the menu, but we asked our server and she kindly helped us with our questions.... More

We were a party of 3 ladies, 1 from out of town. We made brunch reservations. Barking Frog is very close to a couple of the tasting rooms on our list. The restaurant (and lodge) a very beautiful. Good selection on the brunch menu. Pricey, but we expected that. My 2 companions gave their food a 5 and I rated... More

Located at The Willows Resort, the Barking Frog is a must when in Woodenville. The lunch menu offers excellent salads, burgers, salmon, grand marnier shrimp and other delights. The wait staff is friendly with senses of humor all of which add to the enjoyment of dining there.

Nice outdoor seating area for dinner. Extensive wine list, everything on the menu looked good. We both enjoyed our dinner. Our waiter was very informative also.

It was between lunch and dinner but an all day menu was available. We waited 10 minutes to be acknowledged. After ordering sandwiches, we waited over 30 minutes for our food to arrive. My hamburger was raw not med rare and the hot turkey sandwich was not hot. Poor performance after a promising suggestion.

I had the enjoyable experience of having brunch at Barking Frog yesterday in Woodinville. I was treating a friend for a belated birthday brunch. I did make a reservation and we were seated promptly and although there was not a visible wait, the restaurant was full. I had the crab benedict with a mimosa and my friend had the breakfast... More
