Description: It's difficult to say what is most appealing about the Barking Frog - the food, the wine, the atmosphere. All of the above earned this casual bistro featuring country fresh Northwest cuisine rave reviews. Honors have included "Restaurant of the Year", "Most Innovative Wine List" and "Wine Grand Award" awards, presented by the Washington Wine Commission. Delectable dishes entice guests to linger in the light-filled dining room or to gather around the fireplace. While in the summer, lunch and dinner are served in the courtyard. Wine tasting in Fireside Cellars - Many wineries are open for public tastings, others are not. However, there is one place where you can relax with friends and fellow guests to taste the finest that Woodinville Wine Country has to offer - Fireside Cellars at Willows Lodge. Join us from 4PM-11PM Sunday-Thursday and 4PM-12AM Friday and Saturday.On weekends, the sweet smell of crepes fills the air as the Fireside Cellars is now open and offers both sweet and savory crepes along with oatmeal, pastries and your favorite coffee/espresso. Open Saturdays and Sundays from 8AM-1PM.

The food here is very well prepared and the service is always great. A bit heavy on the game sideand I wish there was a bigger sea food selection, but all and all a very nice place. Get reservations. the bar could be a bit bigger, but one can walk across the way to the fire side bar at the inn.

My wife and i are frequent visitors to Willows Lodge and Barking Frog as it is in our back yard. I have to say over the past few years the service has continued to slide. We really enjoy the ambiance but are becoming more and more turned off by the customer service - especially the hosts at the Barking Frog - while it may be a small thing just the level of attention and greeting is not up to standard with the quality of the facilities. I hope the level of attention to customer detail improves as it doesn't hold a candle to what I experience at some of the great hotel chains around the world but the ambiance of the place is top notch.

While celebrating our 20th anniversary we made reservations to have dinner here based on other reviews. We mentioned our celebration upon making the reservation and were greeted with a signed card wishing us a Happy Anniversary. We received excellent service from our waitstaff and had a nice corner table (upon request). It was a little loud at times as there were a few larger parties having dinner but it didn't deter too much from our quiet nook. We heard all about the prawn appetizers so ordered those. Honestly, we've had almost the same dish elsewhere, it wasn't anything unique. Our salads were delicious (beet and mixed) and entrees were above average. I think we expected to walk away with a more outstandingly positive vibe considering the hype but left feeling a little disappointed. We didn't experience any "wow" moments, but did enjoy an overall nice dinner.

After having an amazing night at the Herb Farm we really wanted to check out Barking Frog, the experience ended up being a real disappointment. The food wasn't anything special and the service was certainly not worth the trip and the tables were way too close together. I would not recommend this for a date night, a day of wine drinking with a group would be acceptable.

Nestled in the wine country of Woodinville is this great restaurant perfect for a special occasion! We enjoyed entrees of trout and scallops, and a tasty lemon curd cheescake for dessert! Delicious! Excellent service and wonderful atmosphere. Walk around the beautiful grounds before you enter, and enjoy the flowers and scenery!
