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.

“An amazingly unique dining experience.”
Reviewed 15 November 2009

My boyfriend and I went to the Barking Frog yesterday night to celebrate our one year anniversary. One of the most shocking and surprising things I experienced here was a waiter who was honest enough that he was willing to let us know that he wouldn't suggest one of our entree decisions. After letting us know his true opinions on the dish he provided suggestions for dishes which he felt we might enjoy. This led to selections which were amazingly accurate. We enjoyed everything we ordered. Many of which sounded surprising as dishes but exploded with wonderful flavor in our mouths.

This is a restaurant which both my boyfriend and I would recommend. We enjoyed the experience so much we have plans to go again for our next anniversary.

Had a fantastic meal--Grand Marnier Prawns reminded me of Singapore. The Kobe shoulder beef was coupled perfectly with lobster ravioli. The desserts were forgettable, but service, ambience, and food were top notch.

disappointing, several of the dishes were trying to hard and missed the mark, scallops were pretty good but it's hard to have bad scallops

Reviewed 25 August 2008

First-class, romantic dining spot in Woodinville. We had the 5-course prix fixe menu with a matching wine pairing...the food was superb, and we were able to taste some outstanding locally-produced wines. A good thing, too, since a group of obnoxious, drunk wine producers were having a convention there that weekend. Our waitress graciously apologized and did the best she could to turn down the noise.
