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.

“Great meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

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.

“Worth the wait? NO”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

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.

“Nice Jewel in Woodinville”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

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 burrito, they were both excellent. Service was good and the wait time for the food was not overlong.

The noise level was high, we had several large parties around us, but were able to converse because we had side by side seating at a table for 4. But if you were at a longer table it would be difficult.

The crowd was a good mix of older couples, younger with babies, and people that were perhaps staying at Willows Lodge.

The prices are a bit high, but the quality of the food and service compensated.

A nice place for a family celebration!

“Easter brunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

Stopped by for brunch after Easter services down the road. The meal was delightful and served efficiently for a group with young kids to seniors. From pancakes and French toast to dun genesis crab eggs Benedict the selections are all prepared very well. The prices are a bit high but the location of the restaurant did not make this a surprise. The willows lodge is a wonderful getaway but not inexpensive to stay.

“Great Food and Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014 via mobile

We ate breakfast twice and lunch once during a stay at Willows Lodge. The French toast melts in your mouth, and the eggs Benedict is excellent, too. If you eat dinner or lunch, try the Grand Mariner Prawns--loved them! We had dinner at The Herbfarm, and it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Next time, we'll stick with the Barking Frog.
