Fantastic service. Meal was great.... especially the prawn appetizer. Meal prices were quite reasonable, although wine prices were quite high.

Had our anniversary dinner at the Barking Frog and it was one of the best meals ever. The decor, service, special touches (anniversary card from the staff), wine, desserts were so good that it has taken 5 months to get up the courage to write a review that lives up to the standards of the meal. We started the evening... More

We were lucky to dine here when the Dine Around Seattle was happening so the prices were reasonable. We shared the mussels as an appetizer and they were to die for. Hubby had the steal head and said it was delicious and I had the short ribs and the meat melted in your mouth! Service was outstanding.

We only ate breakfast here after staying the night at the Willow's Lodge. I ordered the breakfast burrito and my husband ordered the egg/meat/toast meal. Both were great - eggs cooked perfectly. The burrito had a unique twist which was excellent. The other entrees also were made unique with the combination of ingredients. Service was great, but our food was... More

Food is inconsistent from course to course. One will be fantastic and the next one poor. Portions are inconsistent as well. Two people getting the same dish should have the same amount of food. For the prices charged, this inconsistency is unforgiveable.

We recently stayed next door at the Willows Lodge for a few days of business meetings. We ate two nights at Barking Frog. The restaurant is nicely decorated and comfortable in the heart of Woodinville wine district. It is a Gordon Ramsey-style restaurant meaning upscale dining, no comfort food, no kid meals. The first night we ate at the big... More

My boyfriend and I were celebrating his birthday and had brunch at the Barking Frog. YUM! The food is wonderful, and our server, Claire, really made the morning special with an order of delicious pastries (can't remember the name!) we dipped in huckleberry jam!

I never have to wonder if I am going to have a nice experience here. Having eaten here many times, it has always been great and the staff is as well.
