Good, but not relaxing 1/2/2007

The Barking Frog is located next to The Herbfarm and Red Hook, in the south-west corner of Woodinville near the wineries. The Spirit of Washington train stops just across Red Hook from it, and there's a corporate team-building jungle gym (or used to be) behind it. It's right on the Burke Gilman (sp?) trail. Why do you care? Because this place felt to me more about image than about experience. What's Right? Pretty good, creative food. Some unusual luxury items, e.g. Kobe Beef burgers (which kinda miss the point of Kobe which is that it is exceptionally tender; you don't NEED to grind it!) Good wine selection. So what's my beef? The building is large, open, cement-floored, arched, with a fire in the centre. Not much sound baffling, not much by way of dining-space division. Everybody is on-show. And a lot of the people, the food, the presentation, are for show. The prices reflect the goal too. Service is decently prompt, but doesn't feel as friendly as pretty much anywhere else in Woodinville. This would work a lot better as a dinner before going to see a play or other cultural event, when you're gussied up anyhow and going to be around people. But for a quiet semi-private dinner, not so much. The lunch experience is better, less pretentious, a bit less expensive, and the food is still good. more
