Classic Small French Fine Dining

Lynn's Bistro is small and quiet with white tablecloths, flowers and an attentive staff. Classic French standards like rack of lamb and duck breast populate the menu. Service is crisp and unobtrusive. Really the only place on the East side that give BisOnMain any competition for classic dining.

Everything was fresh and definitely made with love. I had a spinach salad along with a special chef appetizer and it was divine. For my main entree I order a medium flank steak with a tomato artichoke sauce and I have to say it was heaven on earth. Each bite was juicy and full of flavor. A definite "go to"... More

I tried to call Lynn's Bistro two times and left a voice mail each time asking for a reservation. The recording said "leave your name and telephone number" and they would confirm. Well they never called back. This has never happened to me in all the years I have left voice mails for restaurant reservations. So actually we have never... More

We had a great evening at Lynn's. It is a nice cozy room set with fine china. It was a busy evening when we were there. We each had the $45.00 set price menu. My husband had the French onion soup. It was probably one of the best French onion soups that we've had. The broth was so flavorful and... More

This wasn't my first trip to Lynn's Bistro but it had been awhile and I had forgotten how good the food is. Lynn's is small but not crowded feeling,I recommend reservations. The owner is a wonderful women and is often out on the floor talking to the customers to make sure everything was just right. Nice place for a special... More

I have been dining at Lynn's for years. Each visit I am challenged by ordering the special or going with one of my favorites. Either way, you can't go wrong. I highly recommend the Romaine Crab Salad and the Shrimp Raviolis. All the entrees are good but I do love the Duck. Lynn is very talented and she had created... More

Excellent french food! Lynn's Bistro is a hidden gem in downtown Kirkland. I would have never thought to come here if it wasn't for a friend's referral. PROS: Ambiance: It is a rather small establishment seating about 40 people at once. The restaurant is furnished with clean white tablecloths, fresh flowers and low lit candles giving it a relaxing and... More

Nice spot with well done old French favorites. Fairly priced and a nice wine list. Just what we wanted after a busy day
