This restaurant is on par with the high end restaurants in Seattle. The price is affordable for the quality of food you get. The service was also great. I would recommend saving a drive to Seattle and coming here. If you live in Seattle, make the drive north, you won't be disappointed.

What can you say that others have not already said about this wonderful restaurant. I was recently there with friends and the food was as good as ever no matter what you choose. The restaurant has expanded since I was last there, they have a second room adjoining the main restaurant for groups and when busy which is the norm... More

Heard this place was really good and it lived up to the billing. Wine list is very extensive with a wonderful collection of top Washington wines. The steamers were unique and about the best around. Steaks and chops cooked to perfection. Service was very attentive but not overbearing. Clean place. Small, so reservations recommended. will be going back at some... More

Dinner was excellent with several selections and a nightly special. Lovely setting with linen tablecloths, flowers, and candles. Service was wonderful and our server was super sweet. Would be great for a date night!

We are from Belgium and are visiting the west coast. After two weeks on the road, we stopped for a couple of days in Arlington, and were told about the bistro. We went once for dinner, and then a second time for dinner. The food is excellent and the welcome very friendly. You immediately feel home and it is as... More

This is a favorite of mine. The food is incredible. I have never had anything that was not delicious. The service is impeccable. The prices are fair. I can't recommend it enough. There are not a lot of seats, so make sure you have a reservation.

There are very few restaurants.....maybe none in the area where you can "order from the menu blindfoldeded" and know that you will have a divine meal. But at the Bistro San Martin, you can do just that. Everything is wonderful......the seafood bisque is to die for. My husband and I had different things to eat.....and everything was hot and delicious!... More
