The Herbfarm is America's only 5-Diamond Restaurant north of Napa Valley and east of Chicago. With working farm and restaurant 20 minutes from Seattle, the restaurant offers 26 different 9 course dinner menus each year.Creed: The Herbfarm believes that no dish can be better than its ingredients, and that the best ingredients are usually local.

We were staying at the Willows Lodge Labour Day weekend to see Pink Martini on Friday so my wife got us a reservation at the Herb Farm the next night. They have a great program for buying local ingredients and the tour of the herb gardens is fun and informative. Their wine pairings they offer with the food was great... More

OMG ... worth every penny ... wine paired with fantastic food and stellar service. This is a destination restaurant because the meal is the event.

The Herbfarm is by far the best restaurant experience I have had. Many balk at the price, but when you take into account the 5 hours of amazing food and perfect service, it is a steal. There are many other Seattle restaurants when you will rack up a similar bill in a couple of hours. This is not just dinner,... More

The price of the dinner is a bit scary, but it sure was a nice evening with more than enough high quality and interesting food and wine. Not a place to eat all the time, but definitely a nice splurge.

The reservation process for the restaurant can be done on their website. Note that if you don't choose a private table for your party, you will more than likely be sitting... More

The food was delicious the wine matching was spot on I loved the fact they used only local organic produce and grew alot of their own herbs and such. You have the choice of sitting at a table with people you didnt know or on your own table, we chose to sit with other people and this made for a... More

My colleague and I took Customers to the HerbFarm for a culinary experience. It turned out to be the perfect choice. Although the location is quite out of town (Seattle) it is a very peaceful place. We were greeted by a 'traditionally' dressed hostess with a glass of home made punch which settled everyone into the mood for a good... More

Having eaten at some of the 'best' restaurants in the world, many more 'average' and 'poor' restaurants and knowing that others have had different experiences and expectations, I am not surprised at the tremendous different expressions regarding The Herbfarm from TripAdvisor reviewers. As for my wife and I, dining at The Herbfarm was a very memorable experience. It is certainly... More

They do this bizarre thing. There is a single seating with every patron on the same prix fixe menu. But there are FAR TOO MANY patrons for them to bring out the food all at one time. Unfortunately they try to accomplish that task. Major FAIL. The food comes out cold, or "hastily prepared". Can you say McDonalds of gourmet... More
