I've never heard of a restaurant that took note of a social media comment requesting one day special be available days later. That happened for me at Bar Dojo. It was ready when we ordered. Truly exceptional!

We've been going to Bar Dojo for several years. The happy hour is very popular and the bar is small so get there early. The appetizers are very creative and good. The entrees are equally done well. It gets a bit expensive, a couple apps, a few drinks and two entree is going to run you over $100 easily.

Definitely worth a try if you like inspired Asian fusion food.

Best food in Edmonds and competes with any fancy Bellevue restaurant! Hands down. So many great dishes to choose from. Desert is outstanding as well which they rotate often.

This restaurant is delicious! It’s small and deservedly yay, which accounts for the noise level. But the food is so good and the wait staff so great, I’d put up with noise anytime to go there.

I am a connoisseur of Miso Black Cod and yours was great, but I actually think it would have benefited form a long marinading time. It was light and fresh, and the classic miso black cod has more depth of character.

Everything else was amazing! I adore your ahi tacos and the brussel's sprouts served with the ribs were the best I have ever had!

We love Bar Dojo-the food is absolutely amazing and inventive! My only complaint is that we sat close to the kitchen and there is a doorbell that sounds whenever the front door opens and it was about to drive us batty. Not sure if you can turn it down? We will just ask to sit farther from the kitchen next time just in case. :)

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!

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.

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.
