The wait staff is delightful! This is a wonderful little place for dinner. Pizza was fantastic and the Calamari Salad is a must! Don't forget to order the carrot cake!

Our hosts at the Greenhouse Inn recommended the Alder wood Bistro and reserved a patio table for us. We could not have been more pleased. The waitress was delightful and the food was wonderful. My husband had the Steak Frite and I had a duck breast special. The food was delicious and locally sourced.

Went with the whole family to this delicious bistro. It offered several fresh sandwiches salads and pizza. We all had different items and all were fresh and served with tasty fries. Service was fast and friendly

Glad my husband and I made reservations here on a Friday night or else we would have missed out on a great meal in our short stay in Sequim. We each had different entrees and we're both pleased with what we had ordered. Even the dip that was brought out with the bread was tasty. We were too full to... More

My wife and I ate at Alder Wood a few years ago, when vacationing in Sequim. This weekend we needed a brief outing and drove 90 minutes to wonder Port Townsend and eat dinner in Sequim. Another great menu and dinner! Summer steak cooked to perfection and a polenta lasagna with goat cheese. Weird? No! Awesome.

Our interest was piqued by the menu, so we decide to try this locally sourced restaurant. We were seated on the patio and served a luscious beet hummus dip with crostini. Wonderful, slightly chunky texture, perfectly seasoned, and fresh. We selected the Wood Fired Mussels as our appetizer and hit the jackpot with these delightful morsels. Plump, juicy, flavorful, and... More

From the first bite of the wood fired mussels to the final spoon full of the mango and passion fruit sorbet, this meal was outstanding. I travel regularly and have dined in restaurants throughout the US and Asia, and this dinner ranks with the top of them. The blending of flavors was exquisite with everything in harmony and nothing overpowering... More

This is one of those cases where existing reviews of the restaurants raised my expectations beyond what the experience actually delivered. We tried two appetizers: the mussels and the fried calamari. The mussels were uneven --several were broken, requiring extra attention not to bite into a shell piece,-- and the broth was tasty but not exceptional. The calamari were tender... More
