Every year, Woodinville plays host to tens of thousands of visitors from all over the world. Not surprisingly, that means a lot of people with a lot of different food preferences. No worries – we have you covered! Here’s a brief rundown of Woodinville restaurants that cater to a wide variety of partial palettes.
Vivi Pizzeria– Gluten Free and Vegan options
Italian food and gluten free don’t often go hand in hand but Vivi Pizzeria has options for all their guests. They offer a gluten free crust so everyone can enjoy a piping hot slice of their pizza while relaxing on one of the most popular patios in Woodinville! For a vegan option, try the Spaghetti Porro made with leeks, roma tomatoes, garlic, white wine, olive oil and parmesan.
Heritage Restaurant – Vegan
Newcomer Heritage Restaurant and Bar has quickly made a name for itself as a comfortably casual, quality food locale. Chef Breanna Beike makes it a priority to ensure that all of her guests feel at home. People following a vegan diet will appreciate the marinated portobello mushrooms served with fennel sprouts, ancient grains, and grilled artichokes. Savory and delicious!
Village Wines – Vegetarian
Village Wines has been a mainstay in the Hollywood District and their consistent quality and extensive wine list are two reasons why the phrase “Let’s meet at Village!” is so often heard around town. Their extensive menu includes a vegetarian flatbread with a “magical” artichoke spread that many a carnivore has opted for as a dinner choice.
Purple Cafe – Keto/ Low Carb/ Paleo
The Purple Café is a popular destination for lunch or dinner (and brunch on the weekends) and for good reason – the food, atmosphere and service are all top end. For those looking to limit their carb intake but indulge in gastronomic delights, you’ll be spoiled for choice here. No doubt the bacon-wrapped meatloaf with roasted mushrooms will satisfy any low-carb meat lover!
Hollywood Tavern – Dairy Free
A little roadhouse in 1947, The Hollywood Tavern is now a Woodinville hotspot with tasty tavern food that a match for anyone’s palette. Even if you’re ditching dairy, you’ll have choices a-plenty at this historic site now known for its classic comfort food. Order up a plate of Brick Chicken with a side of their “never-to-be-forgotten” brussels sprouts and you’ll leave satisfied without a dairy care in the world!
Tandem Dinner & Wine Bar – Organic
Woodinville restaurants have the great fortune of sourcing items from local farms, many of which grow their food organically. Tandem Dinner and Wine Bar take full advantage of our local bounty and offer a dinner menu that would rival any big-city restaurant. Their local NW rack of lamb with fresh sides is a beautiful example of “local” and “farm fresh” at its best!
Woodinville Cut Shop – Carnivore
The new kid in the neighborhood – The Cut Shop – has hit the ground running and is grabbing the limelight for many a meat lover! Carnivores crave many of the choices cooked up by a chef with a butchery background. Narrowing the choice of menu items – which include a double cut pork chop and a ginormous 40-ounce ribeye – will be a tough task for die hard meat-eaters… but no doubt, you’re up for the task.
Barking Frog – Pescitarian
The Barking Frog restaurant – part of the boutique Willows Lodge hotel – has long be regarded as the standard-bearer of fine dining in Woodinville Wine Country. It would be of little surprise to those following a pescetarian diet that this high-end, Pacific Northwest restaurant has fresh and varied seafood options including a signature dish that is coveted by many a repeat-diner: The Barking Frog Grand Marnier prawns.
Picnic Table – Raw
Tucked in amongst dozens of wine tasting rooms in the Artisan Hill area of the Warehouse District is a gem of a restaurant named The PicNic Table. This small, Mediterranean-style café has become the go-to place for wine aficionados seeking delicious culinary pairings. The seasonal burrata and heirloom tomato salad or the Mediterranean plate are perfect choices for guests guided by a raw diet. And don’t forget – you can order a full spread of fresh, local foods and take it to go in a handy picnic box!
