Executive Chef Bobby Moore joined us in 2001 and he’s been winning accolades and fans at Barking Frog ever since. On two occasions, 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 desire to keep pushing and his respect for local, seasonal ingredients is what has garnered national accolades and a loyal following. 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 on the eastside. 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 sommelier is 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 have received Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence for four 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.
Barking Frog is named after the Native American use of the frog as a symbol of abundance. Storytellers say, when frogs bark, 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.
