We love eating here. Unfortunately for the past few weeks we’ve not been able to eat here due to allergies. Currently restaurant only has outdoor seating. We’re anxiously awaiting for indoor dining. Food is delicious using local ingredients. Menu specials every week are amazing !...Staff is always wonderful ! Owners are absolutely caring and put lots of love and time into their business making it the best restaurant on the Olympic Peninsula ! Thank you !More

We enjoyed a delightful evening recently, on the charming Alder Wood Bistro patio in Sequim. From the great service (excellent knowledge of menu and wine list) to the inspired menu, we were all happy campers (including the gluten-free guy). When available, do not miss the...crispy calamari salad, gazpacho, wood-fired pizza and steak frites (truffle fries!). We also had the evening special, moussaka, which was wonderful. Then, save a little room for the crème brulée and chocolate bliss, with spoons for all. Thank you to the great chef and staff for a memorable evening.More

We were told to check out another restaurant, but it was closed and this place popped up. What luck! We hadn’t made reservations, but they found a table for two. Coming earlier in the evening helped I think. They led us to a back garden...with beautiful flowers all around us. It’s a small place, so getting a reservation is advisable!! It’s a farm to table restaurant and the food was well prepared and delicious! We will be back when we return to Sequim.More

Went to the Alder Wood Bistro for the first time for our anniversary dinner. The atmosphere, people and food were fantastic! I had the seafood paella and my wife had the meatloaf, both of which were great! The service was great as well, couldn’t have...asked for a better experience.More

Great customer service. We were offered a wine menu while we waited 20 m for our walk-in table. They were knowledgeable about their wines. Had an excellent gourmet meal. Perfectly cooked with great spices and fantastic side vegetables that fit very well. We got to...order appetizers calamari (delicate and savory) and the tomato and blue cheese salad. Main courses the lamb, plank salmon and seafood pesto pasta. House white, nor, franc, and Pino noir. Then desert of carrot cake and berry & ginger penna cotta, deliciousMore

We loved this place! From the wine, to the nice patio, to the food, AlderWood is a class act. I had the Panzanella salad with truffle fries. Both were exquisite! My husband had fish and chips which he enjoyed! Going back within our one week...vacation!More

We ate here twice and would have eaten here more if they hadn't been closed on Sunday and Monday. Extremely good food and very nice beer selection. First night we had the veggie burger (best I've ever had) and the bistro burger (fantastic). Second night...we had the prosciutto salmon (wonderful preparation) and the steak frite (cooked to order and wonderful as well). All of our food was great! We also splurged and had dessert - the chocolate bliss. If you like rich dark chocolate, this is it. We had reservations for outside on the patio. Tables were spaced out nicely and there's shade provided. The service was excellent. They went out of their way to get us out of the sun, rearranging tables to do so. Staff was friendly and gracious. Absolutely top notch food and top notch service. We would go out of our way to come here again.More

Everything from start to finish was good! Arrived half hour early for our reservation and the staff fitted us in and found us a spot outside with a good ambience. The food was excellent. Flavors and presentation immaculate. Highly recommend.

This is the place for dinner in Sequim. Fresh, thoughtful ingredients, accommodating and friendly staff and a wine list that is unique and offers something for every palate.

Online ordering is closed between 6:00 and 7:30, but when we called during this time, they were happy to take our order by phone. May depend on how busy they are. Everything made with fresh, local ingredients was great, especially the sides. The polenta was...the best I’ve ever had. The crispy fingerling potatoes were excellent, and the mixed vegetables were quite flavorful, especially the carrots and mushrooms. The entrees weren’t quite up to the same gourmet standard. In particular, my halibut tasted as if it had been frozen (although the fresh salsa topping was delightful). DH’s steak wasn’t super flavorful, either. Vegetarian might be the way to go here. Desserts were excellent, especially the rich but not cloying chocolate bliss. The selection of Washington wines was nice.More
