The restaurant is right on the lake in the Woodmark hotel. The view from the place is breathtaking and make the dining experience a relaxing one. I visited as part of a business offsite. The servers are very knowledgeable about the food and wines and even though I am a vegetarian I was able to find good stuff to eat.... More

Eric is a Rock Star delivering Amazing service! Incredible food, excellent views and every single member of the staff was happy and welcoming. My Australian fiancé said the scallops equalled the best he'd had in Australia! We will be back again. Thank you for a special night.

Liz was our server and did a spectacular job. This was our first visit. We generally have dinner in this spot at Le Grand across the way. The wine list was fun and inviting. On their last of the run list we found a delightful Chateauneuf du Pape from Lavau for $45...nice steal!

This jewel is tucked away above the Beach Cafe in Carillon Point. Most people stop at the Beach Cafe not realizing they are missing a much better view, and better service by walking up the steps to Bin on the Lake. I love the wine list and the view can't be beat. You should request to sit in Troy's section... More

You can't beat the view, but the limited menu and high prices cool interest in the restaurant. The food was an 8 on a scale of 1-10-- -- 10 being outstanding. The cost was at the high end with our bill coming in at $130 plus for two dinners and only one glass of average wine.

I was there during happy hour which is between 4:00 and 6:00 p.m. every day. Wine by the glass is half of the menu price and there is a good selection. I have allergies to gluten and dairy. The staff was exceptionally helpful and accommodating with identifying and adapting dishes for me. I enjoyed a French rosé wine, the grilled... More

First, I want to say the manager went above and beyond to find me a table to accommodate 3 guests without a reservation on "a completely booked" evening. The bartender on duty gave me his apologies and said the couldn't help me. The manager on duty overheard the conversation as he was walking by -Stopped dead in his tracks, looked... More

We went to Bin Restaurant and Wine Bar on a Thursday evening. This waterfront establishment is nestled in Carillon Point along Lake Washington. My companion and I found the staff attentive and welcoming, location unbeatable and food & wine quite good. I have to mention the view. The sun was setting as boats rocked in the marina below and two... More

I live in Kirkland and I think there is sometimes a bit of mediocrity that goes on in restaurants that are on the lake. It is as if they know people are willing to compromise on the food they eat just as long as they can dine on a lake. I have eaten there twice (once just this week) and... More
