Excellent and attentive service. A perfect meal and a simple but generous wine list. Warm environment, cozy tables, not too loud. Located in town so easy to walk to, if staying on the island

We were one of 3 parties in the restaurant. We enjoyed our bruschetta and the seasonal cornbread. I ordered a small plate of venison for my entree, which was so flavorful and delicious! And for dessert we had their housemade ice cream with espresso and liqueur, and it was decadent! The chef was great about working with the neighboring tables... More

Four of us went for dinner one night while were were overnighting at the Marina. It was a short walk and fairly easy to find. It's a small, intimate spot with a friendly and helpful staff. We each had a different dish and we all loved our choice! The portions were very generous and well presented. We followed dessert with... More

The service, the food, the atmosphere... all of it was to die for! I would dine here again in a heartbeat. It is a must for one of your nights in Friday Harbor.

I dined here early Sept this year and the food was excellent but last night the bar was raised to new a high. Chef Bill prepared every plate with love and delicious goodness. This is... More

This place is adorable. It looks like a little house in Friday Harbor. Cool sign outside. We ordered the octopus appetizer - it was amazing! Love it. My ten year old niece even enjoyed it. We tried two types of fish - both were excellent. We tried a few restaurants in Friday Harbor, but this place was the best by... More

Visited this restaurant while on vacation recently. The restaurant is tiny, so call ahead. I enjoyed black cod with vegetables that was expertly prepared. For dessert, a trio of cakes that were all delicious. The service was friendly and knowledgeable. Many restaurants close down after September, so I was glad this restaurant was open in October. If I find myself... More

My family and I went in to Coho for a birthday dinner. I want to let you know - it did NOT disappoint! We started with a flight of local craft vodka, and that whet our appetite for the delicious meal we had! The food was delicious, the atmosphere friendly and intimate (only 6 or 7 tables!) and the attention... More

Finding a restaurant of this quality is a pleasant surprise in a seasonal town like Friday Harbor. We visit the Island frequently during the summer months by boat. Had not tried this restaurant previously, definitely glad we chose to do so. The staff is very friendly, and the food was outstanding. We had friends from Kansas City who are seafood... More

We really enjoyed our meal at Coho. We had salmon and also crab stuffed sole--both were very good. We had a fruit cobbler with ice cream that was excellent. Nice, quiet atmosphere when we were there.
