Great food, great service

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... read more

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!

This was an unexpected surprise in Issaqua! I took my mom to brunch there after church. We were warmly greeted and soon had a table as the restaurant filled quickly following our arrival. The crab cakes were excellent, though mom complained about about how spicy the sauce was. I ordered the Louie salad with no shrimp and extra crab. The... More

My husband and I dined here for Valentine's Day and loved every minute (down to the complimentary chocolates). The staff was warm and welcoming and checked on us at the right intervals. I ordered the lamb shank, which was a lot more food than I expected! It tasted like a homecooked stew, very comforting. The atmosphere was intimate and softly... More

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
