Dined on April 10, 2016

The food was wonderful, ate my weight in oysters. Be prepared for a little sticker shock because its not cheap, but you get what you pay for. I will say that they were behind on the reservations, had to wait an additional 15 minutes and the window seat that I requested was not available. Our server was friendly, attentive, and on his game. Overall good marks.

We love Ivar's in Mukilteo. We always take out of town guests to enjoy the view and delicious food. It's the northwest at it's best. The location is perfect on Puget Sound, near the lighthouse park and the ferry.

Easter Dinner

Dined on March 27, 2016

Arnie's in Mukilteo has been a long-time favorite place for my family and I to dine. We had dinner there last night and I was very disappointed with our meals. My daughter's seafood risotto was runny and tasteless, my other daughter's steak was over cooked, my dad mentioned the fried calamari appetizer was better than his fried oyster dinner and for my fish and chips, I've had better. Not sure what's happened at this establishment, but I hope they can correct their meals upon our next return.

Sunday Brunch

Dined on March 20, 2016

Unfortunately, ordered the almond encrusted salmon for Sunday brunch. First time I felt as though the salmon was either frozen or reheated. It was not a good choice. Usually, our food experience at Ivar's is great, but perhaps the above mean should not be on the menu in its present presentation. Pretty pricey too for a frozen/reheated piece of salmon.

Food Price is way expensive

Dined on March 13, 2016

We came to celebrate our son's 16th birthday. The waitress was not friendly at the beginning. She seemed grouchy and not willing to tell us much. We did not like the selection and price offerings. The same fish and chips you get from outside stand is around $10 and inside eating is $18 (bot too much) for the same food. Also $35 for halibut topped with briquettes was way out of line for the qty and not enough for the appetite of an adult.

Port Clintoner and the Canadians

Dined on February 21, 2016

We had family members visiting us on Whidbey Island, as a treat, we walked on to the ferry to have lunch at Ivar's. One of our party missed the ferry so we had to wait in the bar an additional 45 minutes. The staff was very good about letting us tie up a table for that length of time. when we were ready to order the server was very gracious and efficient. No complaints there. Unfortunately, the food let the lunch down. Every thing was beautifully presented except two of our fish dishes were not cooked correctly, the salmon was over cooked and dry, my swordfish special was not cooked in the middle. My wife and I both agreed that whatever changes have been made are all good, the atmosphere has improved. We have been coming here for years because of the location, now we will come back for the food and service.

I was not pleased with the salmon or halibut. I thought it was overcooked and neither had much flavor. However, the Balsamic reduction was very good and hit the fact it was overlooked. The calamari was done well.

Dined on February 15, 2016

Been here several times. Normally I would give a 5 rating. This time less but due to my choice of items from the menu. Should have gone with the Halibut, or maybe the Salmon, but decided on the Ling Cod. Not bad, just not memorable. Service was fine atmosphere was fine front desk was fine. I'll be back for sure. Hey is it just the part of the country we live in why you can't get a nice filet of Sole here?

Good seafood

Dined on February 15, 2016

The food was good. The only issue is that I don't like my fish half raw, or translucent. So I asked for it to be done medium well. It was cooked plenty. A little too much. It was somewhat dry. I had the taste of the NW and it came with a small piece of Salmon, Halibut and a Crab Cake. Very good, just a little dry.

Was happy to make reservations two and a half weeks in advance for Valentine's Day dinner and assumed there may be a nice feature sheet on the night of. Food was lovey, despite having to send my steak back to be cooked to proper temp. Sadly, I found the wine by the glass selection to be lacking and the VDay cocktail list wasn't exciting. The service and overall experience was pleasant and the vibe in the room was exactly as I figured it would be. Would I return? Sure. There weren't any problems to deter me. Would I turn down the opportunity to try something over this? No. It was lovely but not dazzling.

Dined on February 15, 2016

Our party of six had a back room corner booth, which was perfect given we wanted to be able to talk without excessive noise ruining our evening chat. Our salmon arrived overcooked. However, the waitperson quickly brought us portions that were perfect. Sorry, she didn't asked us how we wanted our fish cooked. Being from the northwest, of course, medium rare was assumed. Not so, but issue was resolved. We will always go back to Ivar's.
