The Perfect Gift

Think of our gift certificates as the gift that is given twice—first when the happy recipients open it and then, later, when they redeem it for the dining experience itself. More than likely, they’ll thank you more than once! LEARN MORE

Frequently Asked Questions

How far in advance do I need to make a reservation?
You are invited to make a reservation at any time. Our increased seating capacity as well as unanticipated cancellations mean there is often a last-minute table available for you.
What is the dress code?
We want you to be comfortable. Dressy casual is the norm. Ties and jackets are not required for men, but are certainly not out of place.
How do you accommodate special dietary needs?
Let us know of any allergies or dietary concerns when you make your reservation. With notice, the chefs can prepare substitutions to satisfy most dietary needs. Please keep in mind that since we cook only with in-season foods from the Pacific Northwest, each menu is designed as a progressive “story” in 9 courses. It might be challenging, for example, to eliminate all seafood from “The Chambers of the Sea” or to create an interesting 9-course vegan menu during the winter “Hunter’s Table” cycle.
I’m a single diner. Can you seat me?
Absolutely! It's a specialty of ours. Our nightly European Common Table accommodates parties of 1 to 3 at a table seating 6 to 10 people. This is a unique opportunity to meet people of similar interests from around the country and world. The European Common Table is often the last to leave each evening.
What is the cancellation policy?
Reservations at The Herbfarm are like having tickets to an entertainment or sporting event. You are guaranteed a spot on the night of your reservation. At the time of your reservation, we take a credit card number and a $50 per person deposit. The balance will be charged the night of the event. A full refund is given if you cancel prior to noon on Monday of the week of your dinner. With less notice, the deposit is forfeited. Of course, you may always send others in your place.
