Busy place with Great Espresso

This place is always busy. It helps that it is attached to a theatre, but if its busy, that must mean its good, and it was. Just ducked in for an espresso, and was surprised how good it was. Nice.

From breakfast on the weekends to dinner anytime, the food is excellent. This is a family run restaurant. Some of my favorite dishes are the wedge salad, ahi salad, ahi appetizer. There is a fresh fish offering, the halibut, salmon and shrimp dishes were all good as well.

Fin's is a favorite dinner choice for us and we enjoy their weekend Breakfasts, too. This is order off the menu service with good service. The coffee is refilled and breakfast arrives in a timely fashion. Our omelets with choices of additions are delicious. Fried potatoes, an orange slice and your choice of toast accompany the egg dishes.

This is a perfect spot for dinner before a play at the Village Theater. We had superb food - salads, fish and yummy dessert. The service was attentive and we were able to have time to find our seats at the theater ( this spot is right next door). There was a good selection of wines to choose from also.

Next-door to the Village Theatre, the perfect spot to dine before or after the matinee performance or dinner before the evening show and/or drinks after.

Have been eating here for several years. Can't say enough about this place. Friendly staff, great food and owners that understand being true to your customers. Case in point. On our very first visit we ordered mussels from the appetizer menu. Shortly after the owner came to our table and said that while they did have the mussels he did... More

My husband and I dined at Fins this evening and had the best service we have ever received at a restaurant thanks to Paul. I sincerely believe that Paul would excel at any hospitality position in the world, Fins Bistro is very lucky to have him. The food was great too, but it was made even better by his descriptions...

I have only lived in Issaquah for four years. Since arriving, my husband and I have frequented a majority of the local restaurants here; some were okay, many were disappointing. At last, we discovered Finns Bistro. What can I say? The ambiance in like being in a theatre. In fact, there is a direct entrance from the restaurant into The... More

Supreme linguini was just ok but could have been excellent if more attention was paid to the spices used. Also, linguini noodles were limp and overcooked. Ahi seared tuna was not very tasty and needed more searing.

We enjoyed a nice breakfast here this morning. Fresh fruit cup, omelet, cooked to order and perfectly cooked potatoes! The service was friendly and prompt . We had dinner here on Thursday and enjoyed the Halibut cheeks. I am not sure that anyone else in the area serves this unusual treat but Fin's does them perfectly! This is really a... More
