Halibut cheek 👍🏼👍🏼

My husband and I were looking for a good local favorite with savory fresh seafood and we found it! The service was excellent and the patio was a perfect place to have such a great meal!

Only being a chicken eater, I was told this place was a pricy seafood restaurant. But when I saw the brunch menu it looked ok. I had a chicken sandwich for lunch. It was good. It was priced appropriately. My companion's seafood brunch item was enjoyed by her. The only issue I guess I would have was that our youngster's... More

I was looking for a place for a good seafood dinner and got a great dining experience. We got to enjoy their outdoor patio and a bonus was some blues music playing across the street. The server was very good and gave us the right amount of attention. The food was very good as well and with good sized portions.... More

We went to happy hour where we had small plates and wine at a discounted price. Both the food and the wine selection were excellent. We sat at the bar and were able to watch the chef prepare dishes and talk about the food with him. It was friendly and very tasty. The crab cakes were excellent. We would definitely... More

This is one of the best restaurants in the area. Whether dining inside or out, the food and atmosphere are delicious and inviting. And, there' something on the menu for everyone.

While visiting family in the area I googled restaurants in Issaquah and chose this one. Were we ever glad. Even though it took two passes to find a parking spot. I had the copper river salmon and it was the BEST salmon meal I can remember having. The staff was prompt, courteous and encouraged us to be leisurely as a... More

In the spirit of full transparency, I'm writing this review based exclusively on my experience attempting to make a reservation. I was looking forward to celebrating a special birthday at Fins Bistro in Issaquah. According to TA, it has high ratings and thought it would be the perfect place to celebrate my mom's 75th birthday party. When I called to... More

Hi Angie I am sorry you had a bad experience while trying to make a Reservation at Fins. While we do have a policy not to take Reservations more than two weeks out being next door to the Village Theatre and to make it fair to all our Patrons. Yes it is true that I am the only one that... More

Fins Bistro is fabulous! We were able to sit in the outside patio for dinner. The staff couldn't be more attentive and friendly. I had the scallop special that was served with butternut squash risotto. Yummmmm! My husband had a trio of seafood that he enjoyed very much. I was quite impressed with the variety in the menu and the... More

Interesting that this is ranked #2 in the area. The food was good but not more than average and a little on the pricey side especially for lunch. We had the calamari. The crab spinich and artichoke dip the toast served with it was sub standard some were undercooked while others burnt. The crab cake sandwich was just okay
