Orchard Kitchen offers one of the best dining experiences you can have on Whidbey Island. The four course dinner is preceded by several tasty bites. Dinner is family style, so not for introverts. It's wonderful.

This is for you introverts out there:

You're warmly welcomed on arrival. Someone shows you where you'll be sitting and takes your drink order. Weather permitting, she'll invite you to step into the courtyard overlooking the garden. You eye the other couples, wondering which ones you'll be dining with. Here's your wine, here's some hors d'oeuvre. By the time you're summoned into the dining room, you're ready to make the best of making conversation with complete strangers. What you discover is that the chef's enthusiastic welcome, the bonhomie and hubbub in the room, the arrival in sequence of excellent dishes thoughtfully prepared, and the effect of the wine (if you partake) make it possible to relax and enjoy the experience. There's a lot to be said for this approach to fine dining: not least, it will make you slow down, give you a chance to relish the food and the company, and convince you that for once the extravagant amount of money you just spent on a single meal was worth every penny.

Hello Jim,

As a fellow introvert this review means so much to me. I have put a great deal of thought into helping people feel relaxed and at ease. My husband would rather throw a party after a long weekend of service. I would rather spend my day in bed with a book! I appreciate that you enjoyed your experience with us.

Cheers,
Tyla

This is the best restaurant in Washington. It's a must. We were lucky to get reservation the night before. Loved every part of the meal. Everything was cooked perfectly.

We enjoyed every aspect of our dinner at Orchard Kitchen. The family and staff are warm, professional and attentive, the food is delicious and made with quality ingredients, skill and love. The wine pairings were tasty and interesting. I'm generally ambivalent about communal seating, but it worked fine for our small group in this convivial setting.
