This is a charming restaurant with views of the mountains rising above Issaquah and some of the best food I have eaten. The staff and local owners are charming and very accomodating as well. The food was delicious from the steak to the seafood options. I look forward to returning on another visit to this area!

Driving thru and stopped for lunch. So happy we did. The service was excellent, the food fresh and imaginative. Such a cool space with a nice outside patio. It was difficult to choose so the server gave us some excellent suggestions. Can't miss here and will definitely be back.

Fins is a charming restaurant with amazing food. It is located on the quaint main street of old downtown Issaquah. Their seafood is very fresh and is some of the best I have ever tasted. There is a nice little patio to sit and enjoy your dinner outdoors when the weather is nice. The service is wonderful, the owners came... More

Fin's handles a pre-dinner crowd almost every night. In addition, they serve a nice brunch on weekends. All of this at a small restaurant with a small, well-trained staff. The food is excellent; fresh seafood, steak and pasta dishes. The staff is friendly and efficient and the owner is right there most days to assure guests of good food and... More

We went to the restaurant after the matinee at the Village Theater. My sister, Mom and I all ordered seafood. The monkfish with risotto was some of the best I've ever had, my sister had the swordfish and said it was excellent. I had the scallops, which were so well prepared that they melted in your mouth. It was my... More

My husband and I walked in with our adult daughter for dinner close to 8 pm on a Wednesday evening, having no idea what a treat awaited us. Our server was great fun, and the impressive offerings prepared to perfection. I had macadamia halibut (signature dish), my husband ordered Copper River Salmon (a seasonal delight), and daughter ordered the Northwest... More

We've just had an absolutely wonderful lunch at Fins Bistro. Not only was the food a complete delight (Crab Bisque - highly recommendable!), but what made this visit really so special was the amazing service Amy provided us with. She was one of the friendliest people we've met on our trip and gave us fantastic advice of what to see... More

Yum! We started with the pan roasted prawns and fought over the bread on the table to sop up every bit of the broth! My wife and I each had the snapper and the fish was excellent and the rock shrimp risotto was special in that the shrimp and squash were not mashed to nothingness and added flavor to the... More

I went to the restaurant because of the reviews on TripAdvisor. I had 2 clients and the president of my company as guests. Great selection of seafood entrees. Simple dishes as well as more elaborate/creative entree choices. The atmosphere and service were excellent. I travel to the area frequently and I will eat here many times in the future.
