Restaurants - Woodinville

The following restaurants have been recommended by other visitors to this website. Please send me email (send email to mikel) with your restaurant recommendations and a few comments about them for this area.
  • The Golden Goat
    Mike Lempriere: Excellent Italian fare, with an extensive wine list, specializing in Italian and Northwest wines. The closest decent restaurant to the Woodinville wineries.
  • Italianisimo, Woodinville
    George Shaw: Ask for secondary wine list, no corking fee if you bring your own special bottle, some outside tables in summer.
  • Willows Lodge/HerbFarm, Woodinville
    Mike Lempriere: This was originally The Herbfarm in Fall City. At that time it was very expensive, formal, dinner only, reservations months in advance (required), yet an unforgettable experience -- absolutely worthwhile, even if only affordable once in a lifetime.
    The Fall City location was closed due to fire Dec-96. In late 1998 they began serving those wonderful meals at the Hedges Cellars tasting room in Issaquah. As of Sep-2000, they will open in a new facility in Woodinville.
    At the Fall City location there is an incredible garden/nursery specializing herbs and edibles you'd be amazed at -- open to public during the day, and a wonderful visit (see HerbFarm link above).
    (Summer 2002) They've reopened in Woodinville smack in the middle of wine country, next to Red Hook Brewery and a stones throw from Chateau Ste. Michelle and Columbia Winery. It's a full out lodge and restaurant now, quite awe inspiring. Details at http://www.willowslodge.com/.
  • The Purple Cafe, Woodinville
    Matt Hornsby: If it is a great wine list and excellent food that you are looking for, you should definitely try the Purple Cafe, a few lots down from the Golden Goat. Definitely one of my favorite restaurants.
