A very pleasant surprise among our Washington state wanderings. Excellent food and service. Wonderful soup. A great civilized stop from the highway drudgery.

The others in my party all enjoyed their seafood selections, I ordered the NY steak. Not a quality cut, too sinewy to cut with a steak knife. Waiter did his best to satisfy, replaced the steak, but second steak was just as tough as the first. Could be a one time supplier issue, I don't know. The waiter removed it... More

We just visited Fins for our Issaquah Village Theatre night out and didn't have a reservation (the restaurant adjoins the Village Theatre, so it's very convenient dining). The restaurant is not all that big, but luckily they had one table for two left. So, if you go on a night the Village Theatre is in session (many nights during the... More

We have eaten at Fins for over 10 years and have never been disappointed! The food is delicious and we've tried most of the main entrees and salads. Our favorite desert is the Bread Pudding. It is to die for. The service is excellent. It really should be the #1 place to eat in Issaquah!

We went for dinner on a Friday night. We needed to change our reservation and had no problem changing the time. The service was superb. Our waitress was extremely nice and patient and the food... oh, my! Looking forward to going back!

Fin's is attached to the Village Theater. This theater is a professional gig. Talent and how! And...this bistro has very talented chefs. I have been going here since I moved here. It is the same talented chefs for at least since 2012, and that is rare in the restaurant biz. WARNING this place is small! They take reservations so MAKE... More

A friend and I had dinner here recently. It was good, but not great. Lots of lovely seafood options on the menu. My friend had the special of Arctic Char, and I had a shrimp and scallop saute. She said her food was good, but needed to salt the sides. My seafood was nicely done, but the sides left a... More

Very good food, service, setting, and a fair price. What's not to like? Dropped in recently and had the New York Strip. It was perfectly cooked and with an excellent sauce. The only complaint on the meal (and it's really minor) is that the vegetables were slightly under-cooked. Carrots shouldn't be that crunchy.

Fins Bistro Traffic was terrible on I-90 east of Seattle, so we decided to wait it out in the little town called Issaquah, a few miles east of Bellevue on I-90. The exit off I-90 put us right onto the main street called “Front Street”. Issaquah is a beautiful and quaint Northwest city. Then we saw the sign – “Fins... More

Cozy, good for conversion, great service. Excellent ciappino was plenty for two light eaters to split. Tasty chicken marsala, Alfredo and crab bisque too!
