Have been to Fins a few times now and each time it is a delightful experience. Love the Parmesan Crusted Halibut Cheeks and the decadence of the Steamed Manilla Clams. There is a lot of food on the plate which is good. A 5 rating would be changing the menu seasonally or even a couple times a year....just a bit... More

Great little place next to the Village Theatre in Issaquah. A quaint ambiance with a very nice summer patio. Good service. Solid Northwest-centric seafood and continental dishes. An excellent option for a theatre night.

Fins is a smaller Bistro with awesome food. We have been going there on occassions over the past several years and the service and food quality and taste remain consistently high! As a South African (we eat a lot if lamb) I am very fussy about lamb dishes, but the lamb shank at Fins is fall off the bone good... More

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner before attending "Mary Poppins" at the Village Theatre, which adjoins this nice restaurant. Their seafood dishes are so good that we have never ordered anything else here. I enjoyed the crab risotto and my husband had the clam chowder, followed by a plate of 6 raw oysters. Both meals were great! We like to order... More

Great atmosphere, awesome service, good wine selection, food was fine...but not great. It seemed like the chef was...constrained. The food had no punch. No flair. I mean, it was ok and all, but it really seemed that every single dish was just "this far" away from being really, darned great. I had the garlic chicken - skin was perfectly crispy... More

We enjoyed a birthday dinner at Fins a year ago and loved it. Thinking we would have the same experience, we revisited the restaurant this year for the same occasion. Unfortunately, we were very disappointed this time around. Our server totally messed up my entree order and I had to sit there for what seemed like an hour waiting for... More

This was my first visit to Fins Bistro, I was part of a large group of about 20 people celebrating a work anniversary. Everyone had a great meal, raves all around the table. I had the fish and chips, the fish was perfectly cooked, moist and tender. The only negative is the seating for our large group was a bit... More
