“Fresh, unique dining experience”
Reviewed March 13, 2009

After dining at just about every top notch restaurant on the Olympic Peninsula, Molly Ward Gardens is hands-down the best there is. It is very much out-of-the-way, on a rustic country road. The sign is easy to miss, especially in the dark. The chef does an amazing job of using the freshest ingredients to create delightful, and well-balanced meals. Options are always available for vegetarians as well.

My one warning to potential customers: This is not a place to take a large group, unless you reserve the entire restaurant. It is a quiet, sleepy kind of place. We dined there with a group of 10 friends and by the end of the meal, the chef literally kicked us out of the restaurant (despite our nearly $1,000 tab). They close at 9pm, and they don't want to stay open later than that, no matter how much you throw down in cash.

I love this restaurant dearly, but it is the kind of place to go for a special meal with a loved one, or a small table of friends/family. You will likely spend $30-50 per person, but it is worth every cent.

“Funky and excellent food”
Reviewed February 21, 2009

Fantastic food and service. Had the rack of lamb and my wife had the dover sole-yum. The ingredients were sooo fresh! We had enough left over for another meal. Funky ambiance with eclectic stylish touches. Don't worry about dressing up, just go and enjoy.

“Molly Ward we will certainly be back”
Reviewed October 24, 2008

Great atmosphere in a relaxed environment. The dinner was fantastic (pork loin and spagetti squash dinner). The setting is romantic and certainly not hurried, make a reservation and go for a romantic dinner with great food.

“great place to eat”
Reviewed November 13, 2007

went there for dinner last Sunday night - I had the pork tenderloin and my girlfriend had the rack of lamb - both were outstanding - although the prices were fairly high (high 20's for the pork and high 30's for the rack of lamb) , the portions were each enough for two complete meals, which in my opinion was well worth it - the cheesecake for dessert was the best cheesecake I have ever eaten -
