Very cute, small restaurant with limited menu selections. The food was good , with large portions. Wine selection was very good. The staff was attentive and professional.

The food and the service are excellent. This is a small resturant I counted seating for 34 but well worth a wait if needed.

The feeling there was romantic, we are not waiting too long, but have a nice lunch over there. The pasta there is really delicious with unforgettable taste!

The place only has a few tables, and I think we were lucky to be seated immediately. I'd say the restaurant is not really for eating with kids, but they had high chairs and crayons and everyone was very patient with our 2 year old walking around. The pasta was some of the best I've had on this side of... More

We were excited to have a reservation here and glad we had one since it was full. We sat down and got a glass of water and then waited ten minutes until we saw the waitress. She wanted the order at once with drinks and food. Drinks came quickly but we needed to grab her to get another. The food... More

Two of us enjoyed a 730 dinner, mid week, early July--busy season. I would recommend a reservation. We ordered way too much food. Started with steamed clams and the tomato mozzarella bruscheta. The clams were fantastic, not too small, and the broth was as good as I've tasted. We had two mains, prawns and pasta with a chipotle sauce, and... More

This tiny restaurant is extremely popular, and for very good reasons. The menu is not extensive, but each dish is obviously well thought out and beautifully presented. The crab stuffed mushroom appetizer is phenomenal, and paired with one of their hearty salads would make for an adequate meal if you are not overly hungry. The pasta entrees are very generous...

We looked on Trip Advisor to see what is the #1 restaurant in Port Townsend and decided to go there. We got there at 5:00 when it opens for dinner. All but two tables had been reserved so we felt fortunate to get a table. If you go, make reservations!!! I had the chicken marsala and it was the best... More

I'm tempted to give Fountain Cafe just one star, but the food here really is amazing. At the same time, without good service dining isn't enjoyable at all. Our waitress took our order and never once returned until the meal was over, and then it was only to plop down dessert menus. Someone else delivered the food, not asking if... More

We asked around town where a good place to go for dinner was. Almost everyone suggested The Fountain Cafe. We went there and were surprised at the inventive menu and the cozy atmosphere. We didn't have a reservation but got lucky and got a table. The service was great and just the right amount of attention. The owner came out... More
