An outstanding small destination restaurant. It can be crowded. We went at 5 when it opened for dinner.

This is a small restaurant with gourmet food in an old building in Port Townsend. Creative, delicious lunch and dinner offerings. Excellent wine choices. I was there last weekend, had the steak and shrimp with hollandaise sauce special. Fantastic!

The Fountain is a small, intimate dining experience. The food is great, and the staff is very professional and accommodating. They have moved to a reservation system, so be sure to call ahead.

Our family had a wonderful lunch here. All 5 of us were very pleased with our orders. My vegan daughter was especially thrilled with her homemade black bean burger! The clam chowder and other sandwiches were also delicious.

The Fountain Café serves excellent food in a very small dining room. The room feels warm and comfortable, but most tables are adjacent to the front door; so in cold weather, dress in layers, because even though the room is warm, there will be occasional blasts of cold air as people enter and leave. The ingredients used are high quality... More

The food is always excellent and the service is second to none. We had requested the only round table in the restaurant but, when we arrived, we found someone sitting at that table and a different table reserved for us. Not sure how the staff managed it, but the young people sitting at "our" table offered to switch tables with... More

After reading all the fabulous reviews, we couldn't wait to try this place for our wedding anniversary dinner. The service was excellent and the restaurant was quaint. Not sure if they were just having an off night but the food was not very good at all. My husband had the steak and it was so tough, he couldn't even chew... More
