Hamburgers and salads are available in case you drop in for lunch. Service was very good and so was the food. This is a busy place, so reservations are... read more

For a number of years we've enjoyed a Christmas Eve meal at Barking Frog and they've never disappointed. There are well-crafted cocktails, attentive and knowledgeable servers, a scrumptious Grand Marnier Prawn appetizer, and a menu that is not large, but fairly diverse and well executed. Be prepared to offer up your credit card number to hold your reservation - at... More

My boyfriend and I met another couple there for dinner as we had a gift card we were looking forward to using. I felt that the ambiance and service were quite good. We had a leisurely dinner and didn't feel rushed. The food was good but not amazing, I had the scallops which were in a carrot sauce. The description... More

The food was really good, but the waiter rushed us. Took plates before we were finished eating! Nice young man, but needs some training.

The Barking Frog in Woodinville is a wonderful place to go for a meal. We ate lunch there on Christmas Eve. They make a delightful sun-dried tomato tapenade. When I asked for the ingredients, our server, Claire, provided a detailed recipe. Not only that, when they packed up my lamb burger, they put an additional serving of tapenade in my... More

We went to the Barking Frog restaurant and we had a great meal. The venison that the whole family ordered was very tender and delicious. It was unique as I do not think we have had this before. It is quite expensive especially as it is in US dollars compared to Canadian $ and the vegetables were a little minimal,... More

The food is top-notch and the staff is very attentive. The large table around the open fire is very nice for larger groups.

This is a great restaurant for a romantic evening or possible business meeting as well. A large open fireplace is in the center of the dining area and provides a warmth and charm. Expect great service and food here. You get what you pay for!

Went here for the Dining around Seattle promotion, three courses Prix fixe menu. All three courses Mussels, lamb shank and sorbet were well presented and perfectly prepared if I had a niggle it was that the mango sorbet turned out to be coconut, but a miner detail which did not interfere. The wine pairing flight (optional) was something I probably... More
