We would highly recommend The Bistro at Hollywood Schoolhouse. They offer a nightly weekend special which is different from their standard menu. The staff is wonderful and very helpful. Great date night option however, not recommended for children as it is small and intimate. Our meal is always excellent! Thank you!

Really enjoyed our experience - it was my birthday and we were there with a party of 6. Sam was an amazing waiter! We had a great experience. Good wine, very good food (my paella was dry but the rest of the dishes were good steak, burger, salmon, duck) Plenty of great dishes to choose from and the ambiance is nice. A nice option after wine tasting! We would definitely go back.

Staff was friendly, service was good. The clams were amazing (but could use more bread for the broth) but everything else we ordered was too salty, even the cookie we ordered for dessert was super salty to the point we didn’t even finish it.

Nestled amongst the wineries in Woodinville is this amazing gem of a restaurant. Great food, amazing wait staff, and a cozy semi-casual vibe. I have eaten here several times and have never been disappointed.

Had a wonderful dinner at the Bistro. We started with the clams as an app. For dinner, had the duck and the pork dish, both were very good and nice portions. The wait staff were very attentive. It was not very busy so it made for a nice relaxing evening out. We will return!

I feel like this restaurant is a hidden gem. It’s unassuming but the food is some of the best in Woodinville. If you sit at the bar you can even watch the chef prepare your dinner.

Now have an alternative to Pizza when tasting in Woodinville, parking can be tight, not in the bistro's control, the food was delicious, ambiance was a bit nosier then expected but not overtly loud. Will be back again...

I had a wonderful experience on a Sunday afternoon. It was a Seahawks playoff game day so it was a little empty, but lively because we had the game on. Great ambiance! The staff was super attentive. We came to the Bistro because we saw there were steaks served, but it turned out they were not normally available on Sundays (they are only available during the dinner service starting at 5PM). The staff went out of their way to offer us steaks and other items that weren't on the Sunday menu. The appetizers we had (cheese plate, bacon wrapped dates) were excellent, as were the steaks (new york and ribeye). I have nothing bad or constructive to offer - our experience was world class and we will definitely be returning!

We told the server that we were there to celebrate my wife's birthday. The staff did nothing to acknowledge this beyond saying "that's great" when we arrived. Food was good, which is why this rating was higher than it should have been

Food was excellent and so were the wine options! Small place. It was a sunny day and they don’t have window coverings, so half of our table of 8 were being blinded by the sun which made conversation more difficult.

My husband and I considers ourselves "foodies". We had an excellent meal. Mussels, Brussel Sprouts, Duck Confit and Pork Shoulder were our selections. We shared a dessert of pears on a flaky puff pastry. Service was quick and every seat filled. Reservations are recommended!

Great happy hour options for food and the wine selections recommended by our server were well liked by the party. They were able to accommodate our 5 couples for a end of week happy hour. My husband and I shared the chicken pot pie and it was delicious!

Well, the food was good. A small place with no real atmosphere, but that was OK. Prices are higher than $$...We had 3 small plates and one beat salad and it was over $66 without the tip - NO drinks, expect 2 teas. If you're a vegetarian, don't bother unless you eat bread and a salad. They have a VERY limited menu for vegetarians and many of the fish dishes also have meat in them (only 1 on the dinner menu and it had chorizo!). Even the "safe" appetizer of fried Brussels sprouts had meat - it did indicate this on the menu, so it's our fault, but other than fries and bread, and 1 fondue, there's not much to eat here. The beat salad was great. And, the fries. that's about all you can eat here, even for us being pescatarians.

This was my second visit to the Bistro. We had a hard time deciding on what to choose from their menu, it all sounded so good. We had the Bacon Wrapped dates that were to die for! The Duck Comfit and Porchetta were our entries and were fabulous. Add some lovely wine by the glass and it was a perfect date night meal. I advise reservations!

Very nice venue and grounds at Hollywood School, a nice place to visit. The restaurant is pleasant, nice inside space and fire pits to sit around outside. The service is good too, the food was the low point. We had the Brussels sprouts app and it was very good, after that, not so much. The chicken on the salads had an off taste and texture and the paella was less than average. The wine list is reasonable and we enjoyed that. Perhaps we didn’t make the best choices. The lamb burger looks pretty good, if I come back I will try that. Realistically though, with so many eating choices out there, if you are not pretty impressed on your first visit, a return trip is not very likely.

Went out with the girls and made reservations. Our table was ready when we arrived. I like the fact that they do not rush you. The food was wonderful along with the service. I highly recommend this place.

Always a great place to go. My wife even commented the following day how good her meal was the night before.
