We go here about twice a year & are always pleased with the food & the friendly service. It's great to have a local restaurant that you don't have to drive far too & always is consistent

It took 30 minutes to get our simple lunch order and we were the only customers at 11:00 for lunch. The food, when it arrived, was good. One order was seafood chowder, the other was a crab/shrimp open faced sandwich and simple salad. Prices are on the high side.

We arrived at the resteraunt at 9:00PM. And proceeded to the bar. The appetizers (tower and fondu) were awesome. I would definitely get these again. I had the bar size fish and chips and it was very good. Cooked perfectly. Fish was flaky and moist. Finished off with bread pudding which is awesome. One of the best deserts I have... More

This is a must re-visit restaurant. It is small, but Steven our server was great and so was the food. We stopped in early Friday evening on our way home to the Tri-Cities and were happy it was such a great find. I had the crab chowder and macadamia encrusted halibut with peanut thai sauce. It was wonderful. I can't... More

We stopped in at Fins for dinner right after a show at the Village Theater. Even though we did not have reservations, they fit us in. I had the flatiron steak. Perfectly cooked steak is hard to find........even dare I say rare (ba-dump). Seriously, they cooked the steak exactly right. My wife had the lamb shank and loved it.

Very good restaurant specializing in seafood. They offer other food items that are also very good. You should have reservations as they have the theater crowd. Good seafood, good service.

I can put up with mediocre food. It doesn't even bother me to have a spotted glass. A little bit of crumbs and a straw on the floor? No problem. What I can' t stand is service so poor it is virtually non-existent. Best I can tell Fins is swimming in bad service. After being ignored by virtually every employee... More

We like to go to Fin's Bistro. Good for both lunch and dinner. It's in a great Issaquah location on Front Street. Nothing spectatular but consistantly good seafood. There is a small patio for outside seating. They have a nice wine selection. Mussel appetizer is yummy! I highly recommend the Macadamia Halibut, it is out of this world!

I choose Finns every time my guests are special to me - low noise, so conversation is pleasant, drinks are superbly prepared, cuisine is excellent, soups are velvety, and there's always a smile for us! Feels like a second home!
