We were headed to the border crossing and decided to eat before joining what we expected to be a long line of cars so we exited for Bellingham. There were a number of options, but we noticed this restaurant seemed be doing an excellent business....More

We had dinner in the historic lobby of a beautiful old building. I had the blackened cod special which was excellent. The service was spot on. We explored the building afterward and made a wish in the fountain.

I had the oyster poor boy which was quite good but my husband had the penne Primavera that was disappointing ... artichoke hearts were tough and there wasn't enough sauce - he couldn't finish it. Service and atmosphere was good.

We stopped in at Mambo Italiano for dinner, and it was absolutely delicious. It is a cute locally owned restaurant, and little bit on the pricier side but definitely worth it. I would recommend the pesto linguine - delicious!

We sat outside to dine and had two great fettuccine dinners. The staff was attentive and the food was hot. The smells coming from inside was just like you can imagine coming from an Old World Italian grandmother's kitchen. Only downside was no music. Italian...More

The food is very tasty! Pasta dishes fresh and very large portions! I had pizza which was a little overlooked but still good with nice thin crust and fresh ingredients. The food did take a long time to prepare, but once it came it was...More

This was a late evening stop for us after a day of travelling so we wanted somewhere serving decent food without too much of a wait and welcoming to families. We were seated in the courtyard and Mambo ticked all the boxes. This place had...More

They have many salads, especially the steak salad. I would think they could make chicken alfredo with veggies, as it's just garlic, butter, cream, parmesan cheese with chicken, veggies. Skip the noodles or serve over rice... More
