My husband and I were visiting family that live in Bellingham and they recommended that we go here for drinks and dinner on a Friday night. We did not arrive until after 9:00pm and the place was packed! We found a table by the window in the second room and sat down to order drinks and share appetizers. We shared... More

We love this little bar. The setting is eclectic and the people are great. There's a great bottle of wine and cheese plate selection for happy hour, and many fine little dishes. The seasonal specials are yum and the desserts are divine. Nothing's fancy, everything's just perfect in this fun little place.

This please is super cute and super French. I loved the outdoor seating and the pretty cocktails. This is a great date place.

We went out for late-night drinks and found this bar on accident, but I'm glad we did. It's a small place with two separate rooms to minimize noise. It had good music, a polite and knowledgable server, and a great ambiance. It's dark and chill with a dash of romantic. If you're looking for a place to escape for a... More

The Temple is a small place big on imaginative, tasty food and great service. Near the Pickford Theater and the Spark Museum it is a great stop after either.

A friend brought us here on Saturday night. Didn't have any issues finding a table at 8:30. We ordered the stuffed dates, temple bar cheese plate (3 cheeses, olives, grapes, honey and baguette); the tarte de jour; blue cheese dip; and the amazing polenta. Between four is us we ordered a second polenta! I don't care if you think you... More

We came here for our 31st anniversary. We love to try lots of different things for dinner: sushi, tasting menus, happy hour menus and tapas. This menu did not disappoint. The duck mousse on the everything plate was great! As was the cheese and the pickled vegetables. The baguette was fresh with the proper amount of "chew". I wish we... More

The service used to be alright, now it's terrible and the food is cheap and costco quality. SKIP. Unless you want to waste 17$ on 2$ worth of cheese and meats. Head to costco, make your own "fancy plates".
