Dining at the Herbfarm, that is, a nine-course organic meal punctuated by strolls through the farm, has long been a favorite of Seattle foodies. This meal is an event each course is introduced by the chef and paired with a local wine or port. On our vist the meal was finished with a bottle of port from 1810. Some even say it's better than the French Laundry and Chez Panisse. This place books up months in advance but it's always worth trying last minute as spaces do sometimes open up.

Think a five-course meal is extravagant? How about nine courses? With five or six matching wines? Add a between-course talk or garden stroll to discuss ingredients or grape growing or cooking techniques, and you've got dinner at The Herb Farm. They change their menu every few weeks, so you might end up with truffles in October or a focus on some other ingredient or type of cuisine another month.
It's not cheap (around $200 a person), but it's an experience like nothing else in the United States (not even Chez Panisse). Hint: Go on a Sun instead of Fri or Sat night when the five-hour dinner starts at 4.30pm instead of 7pm. Ooh, and you can stay in the hotel next door.

One of my favourite dining experiences. Single seating so book ahead. Food and wine all produced within 100 miles of the restaurant. You will be given a tour of the herb farm and each course will be introduced by the chef. Over 9 courses of wonderful food. Most of the seating is family style which is part of the fun. Amazing wine cellar.
