“Overrated”
Reviewed May 23, 2013 via mobile

I have eaten here several times over the last ten years and have always wondered what the fuss was about. This week I had their turkey reuben. The sandwich was dry and consisted of turkey scraps with a small amount of sauerkraut. The clam chowder was a yellowish goo with almost no flavor. There are better choices in Port Townsend.

“Best Pasta Ever!”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

We recently had lunch at The Fountain Cafe and had a delicious seafood pasta. I am allergic to crab so the chef omitted that from mine and added an extra shrimp or two. My husband and I both felt it was one of the better pasta dishes we have ever had, wish we lived closer so we could eat here more often. We will just have to make it a destination stop whenever in this part of Washington.

“Cozy, elegant and delicious”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

Fresh-caught halibut, risotto with peppers, beautfully presented and generously portioned, sound good? Expensive, so skip the appys, you've got plenty of food! Also generous portion of wine.

“Great Food - Warm Atmosphere”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

Great selection of food and wine. Excellent and original specials. The food was exceptionally fresh and cooked from scratch. The service was excellent. We had the Melted Brie with garlic cloves and salsa fresco....it was wonderful. Overall a great dining experience and a "must visit" when in Port Townsend. The posted $5-$17 price is not so accurate. Standard dinner prices were above $20, but worth it.

“Cozy Atmosphere- Good Food”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

We enjoyed paella for dinner here- it was very good but would be even better if the chicken wasn't chopped up but served on the bone. The service was excellent- lovely wines and the gingerbread is delicious. Perfect atmosphere for a romantic dinner.
