The food is delicious and inspiring. The servers are always informed and give us the right amount of attention. Not a fan of the little annex up front - you feel like you are eating in a shed - but the rest of the restaurant has a groovy vibe!

It’s noisy. Waiter was friendly but too busy and fast. It took forever for her to comeback with desert menu. Food was fantastic. Coming back for sure but service needs to improve.

Bar Dojo is consistently good whether you have a table or just go to the bar. The service is super friendly and I have my favorite dishes that are consistently good (ahi poke crab bowl this time). Monday night happy hour also has some great treats.

Went for a special occasion and what a treat! The Dragon Fire margarita is top notch and the food was delicious. We had a side selection of shareables and the chorizo ramen everything was terrific. Great service from the staff, as well.

The food is why we go. It's always good and FULL of flavor. It can be spicy. If you are new to the place just ask the staff and they will advise you.

Service is pretty good. Took off 1 star because there is always new faces. Regardless, all the staff goes out of their way to accommodate your needs. Current bartender mixes some great signature drinks as well as old standards.

Yes, the prices are a bit high, but the quality is there along with being consistent.

We really love this place.

As Edmonds residents we indulge in meals at Bar Dojo occasionally. Their Asian-fusion menu offers a NW twist that makes for a nice change from more conventional fare. We recently ate there with our son from San Francisco and his girlfriend. They were impressed by the pork belly nachos, the avocado tempura, and the kalbi short ribs, as were we. Impressively original cocktails, a decent wine list, excellent service, and a reasonable noise level round out the profile of a really good Edmonds dining spot.

Dishes on menu sound fantastic but could be executed better. I had the Ginger Housin Prawns which had lots of nice ingredients but was over powered by the sauce. Same with Pork Belly Tacos - juicy but need a lighter hand on the glaze.

Always a pleasure at BAR DOJO. Exquisite food, well-crafted cocktails, and a well kept secret that deserves to be let out. The guitarist was the icing on the cake, and I don’t mean the cheap nasty kind...Enrique is simply amazing. We’ll be back for sure.

My husband and I love Bar Dojo. We had a table tucked off to the side which was great as the main dining area can get pretty crazy/noisy. The only downside to our table's location was that we got hit with a draft every time someone came through the door. The food was delicious! We ordered oysters, calimari, pork belly tacos, sautéed broccolini, and pork dumplings. We could have eaten more (everything is always so tasty) but we were getting very full and decided to stop before we regretted our choice. Our server did a great job of staggering the dishes so that we were finishing off one dish before the next one came out. We'll definitely keep coming back!

used to love it and recommended it to many. this time, i was told no availability until 8:30. go there are 8:15 and there were 10 open tables. I was told they would call if I could get in earlier. but they didn't.
food was so spicy, I didn't really enjoy it. had to wash it down with ice water. will reconsider ever going again. will not recommend. I am sad about that.

We had another great experience at Bar Dojo, made even better by our wonderful waiter, Dustin. He took good care of us and our egg allergy, and made the birthday party special. If you haven't tried the avocado, bacon and cauliflower tempura, you are missing out.

Celebrating Shuberts anniversary was special!
Service and spacing of dishes was exemplary.
First 1/2 of menu was best. (Oysters were Devine)
Black cod was a little mushy.
Doughy dessert was out of context but ice cream was perfect.
All in all,a wonderful evening and experience.
Thank you,

Everything on the special 6-course tasting menu was delicious! Chef Luis's creations never fail to impress. The service was a bit slower than usual, but that was likely because of the special offerings in addition to the regular menu items. Overall, delighted by the experience.
