Located in the heart of Washington's wine country, Barking Frog is a highly acclaimed Woodinville restaurant with innovative seasonal menus and an award-winning cellar of Northwest and global wines. Our warm, cozy dining area embodies the same relaxed style as Willows Lodge, making Barking Frog one of the most widely desired restaurants in Woodinville and the wider Seattle area.
Executive Chef Bobby Moore's relationships with local farmers, food artisans, and foragers has inspired a talented culinary team that draws on its mastery of both modern and classic techniques. Bobby and his team consistently prepare fresh and tasty dishes, using local ingredients native to Woodinville and Washington State.
The result of Bobby's talented team's work is the illustrious Barking Frog menu. Complemented by our wide selection of globally and locally sourced wines, you'll struggle not to identify Barking Frog as the best restaurant in Woodinville. What's more, many of our local wines originate from the many Woodinville wineries, situated right on Barking Frog's doorstep!
We’re known for our phenomenal wine list, which highlights the world-acclaimed wines of the Northwest. Our cellar is deep in stellar wines from Washington state growers. We also look beyond our own backyard to collect exciting wines and legendary classics from around the world. Our sommeliers are exceptional at pairing wines to our food and your tastes—no pretense, just knowledgeable suggestions and a passion for sharing great finds.
We are proud to be awarded “Most Innovative Wine List” by the Washington Wine Commission, and to have received Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence for five consecutive years.
We will gladly open your personal bottle of wine (750ml) not currently on our wine list for $30 per bottle and $40 per 750ml bottle that currently appears on our list. Please limit your corkage to two 750ml bottles (or one 1.5L) per party.
Executive Chef Bobby Moore joined us in 2001 from Fullers in Seattle, and he’s been winning accolades and fans at Barking Frog ever since. In 2008 and again in 2014, he was invited to cook at the historic James Beard House in New York City, where he led a culinary team in preparing a five-course meal. His respect for local seasonal ingredients is an inspiration that wins national accolades and a loyal following.
Barking Frog is named after the Native American use of the frog as a symbol of abundance. When the frogs are barking, storytellers say, it’s a sign of peace and harmony—our wish for every guest who walks through the door.
A large circular table surrounds a fireplace where guests gather all year round for a meal or one of our special Winemaker Dinners.
In the summer, our patio is one of the most popular spots in Woodinville Wine Country for dining al fresco.
