I have been to the Bin on the Lake restaurant for a dinner in late September. The weather was exceptional warm and we dined outside. The view over Washington lake was simply beautiful at sunset and in itself could justify being there. Unfortunately also the restaurant management must think the same because as long as the food was concerned, this... More

Went there a number of weeks ago as local friends suggested it. Had to wait for our table, entree wasn't available (which took a while to find out), and $25 wines by the glass were suggested despite clearly stating that more reasonable choices were preferred. Wrote an email to the restaurant with feedback and never got a reply. We spent,... More

Stayed at the Hotel next to it and ate on the terrace looking out on the Lake. Food was fabulous - one of the best tomato salads i have ever had - and matched by friendly and genuinely brilliant service. I don't normally enjoy eating on my own and hurry along and then leave. I could have stayed all evening... More

Dined at the Bin a few times and always enjoyed the menu and the service.. until today. Had a reservation to celebrate a birthday and expressed to the hostess that we wanted to sit outside, but were informed that the patio was not open because of the weather ( sunny -75 degrees ??). Ended up downstairs at the Beach Cafe... More

Sit outside and enjoy the luxurious setting. Get the fries for an appetizer. The spicy prawn pasta was great.

I had a friend in town from the East Coast and thought I would bring her to a place in my neighborhood. I chose Bin and what a great decision! The food was amazing, the ambiance (outdoor seating on a beautiful sunny night on the water) was spectacular and the service was very good. Will look forward to my next... More

We were staying at the Woodmark and stopped in for Happy Hour. They had a great variety of wines to choose from. While we didn't eat we saw lots of great looking food being served to adjacent tables. Only sorry we didn't have time to return and try their food. Very attentive servers,

Think about it, there's really only a very small handful of fine dining restaurants right on Lake Washington. And this is one of them. Nice location. Great atmosphere and view. 5-stars. Good service, with a nice slow pace like we wanted but at times we felt borderline forgotten. 4 stars. Those wanting more attentive service should temper their expectations. Food... More

romantic, warm venue with friendly staff. scrumptuous Northwest cuisine with excellent wine pairings. we thoroughly enjoyed the foie gras, asparagus/egg, and oysters to start. We share family style (3) the scallops with white truffle, copper river salmon and lamb osso buco with white truffle. Ideal pairing for the appetizers was prosecco and truffle/lamb/seafood was damilo barolo. Coming from Hawaii, the... More
