We had the perfect table next to the windows overlooking the harbor. Tables were spaced quite far apart so I felt very safe. We had a lovely evening and plan to come back.

Never tasted better food and the views were perfect!
The service was amazing and even got a free dessert because we were celebrating our anniversary. Price was worth it for the quality of the food!

the appetizer was good and the desserts and drinks but the steak was overcooked and not the most flavorful, which is weird because it use to be really good.

We had an early reservation & watched the sun set. Our table was tucked away so had some privacy. Very good experience. We will return.

Honestly, I was disappointed for many reasons - I had looked at the menu and pictures prior to going, to make sure I would like the food. I was looking VERY forward to the seafood risotto, which was no longer on the menu. Apparently the new chef had changed almost all the items on the menu and shortened the menu and there was not much I could eat. Being allergic to mushrooms, many dishes were out. Thankfully my husband agreed to share the prime rib with me (its a dish for 2) and it was excellent but I won't be back since that was literally the only thing I could order and its not my husbands first choice. None of the seafood meals that looked amazing were on the menu anymore. Even the desserts were changed. No more cheese cake or creme' brûlée- we were disappointed. Not sure I would recommend this but I will pick yes- if people can eat mushrooms they may enjoy it.

Food is priced at fine dining prices, but not fine dining quality. Toasted baguette was burnt, entrees we’re pretty flavorless. Food came too quickly and we felt rushed through our meal, not the romantic anniversary dinner we were hoping for.

Service was warm and friendly. The restaurant felt safe and welcoming. Portions were underwhelming, but expected.
We were most disappointed with the filet mignon. We ordered two at our table, both medium rare, and both dishes were very disappointingly over cooked. Both were tough and burnt to a crisp on the edges. Did not feel we got our $84 dollars worth of steak. That being said we have had incredible steak here in the past- some of the best ever, tonight was just a disappointment.

Had the shrimp plate. Shrimp was good, fish and rice good. Broc wasn't very good, seasoned well, but too charred. Overall expected more for $40 a plate.
Had the cobbler and ice cream, ice cream was amazing! Cobbler was warmed up frozen fruit under cobbler crust. Not very good fruit...

I went to celebrate my birthday. I enjoyed the choices of summery gin and tonic drinks. I tried the first one on the menu with the elderflower and grapefruit garnish. I did like my house salad with the smoked blue cheese salad dressing. I would have liked another seafood choice for the main entree. I would have also liked something special to acknowledge my birthday, that information was shared when I made my reservation.

Their menu has very little to eat if you are a vegetarian. We had to ask for a chicken quinoa meal without the chicken in order to not result in ordering salads. It’s a shame too since Bellingham is a very friendly vegetarian town.

We really enjoyed our experience at Lighthouse. We did experience some service issue with the timing of how our starters and entrees were delivered. All were delivered at the same time, instead of staggered. However, the server did understand the concern and did provide complimentary desserts.

Had a fabulous night on the deck of this restaurant, celebrating our anniversary. Got a great pinot at a stellar price to go with our seafood risotto, to die for chowder and tasty salad. Will come again when I am next in town!

Had reservations for 6PM. By 630 we hadn’t even got our drinks yet but,everyone seated around us after we had been seated had already gotten their drinks and had also placed their food or so we got up and walked out.

We love eating here and have several times.
Food is always good. Service was slow for not being busy. However enjoyable
We received the wrong drink, but it was a good mistake we enjoyed
It was my wife’s birthday which we put in the reservation but obviously it was not acknowledged as we’ve come to expect when scheduling such things. This was disappointing.
We asked for water view which we got, but it was the smallest and furthest from the water. We figure others who came in after us did not have reservations and got better seating. So in essence food was great.. service was so so and the experience was so so

I ordered the seafood salad. I have had it twice in the past few months. It is a good salad but price is a bit high. Went ahead and order it again anyway because of getting the three prawns and salmon. This time I only received two prawns. Asked server and she said that they had recently changed it to two. For $28 you should go back to the three prawns. Way overpriced for a salad.

We decided to eat out for our 30th anniversary, but only if we could sit outside. It was a bit breezy but beautiful view, and relatively quiet. Plenty of distance between tables. Food was mediocre for the price. Great service. Felt safe.
