My wife and our 3 boys are visiting friends who live on San Juan island. We bribed our friends to watch the boys at our campsite for a couple of hours so we could have a nice, quiet dinner together. Duck Soup was recommended to us by our friends and by Lakedale, which is where we stayed.
The Fried Brussels sprouts app was tasty. My wife ordered the Steak Diane, and I had a filet which I think was a special that evening. The dishes were both well thought out, cooked perfectly, and the flavors were great! The wine list was surprisingly good for what we expected from the rest of the island restaurants.
We enjoyed our food, but the atmosphere and service were what really did it for us here! The room is romantic, but not stuffy at all. We felt completely relaxed and at home, but special and well taken care of at the same time. It's not often that you find that nice mix, so it's even difficult to describe. The service was great, and attentive.
I wouldn't call it "pricey" because we've payed much more for much less at other restaurants, and unlike the other two restaurants we tried on the island, we felt like the price was justified by the overall experience. Next time we are on the island we'll return, and perhaps we'll bring the boys along as we did see a few children in the room while we were there. Thanks for the great experience!
