We have dined at Lynn's numerous times and have NEVER been disappointed. If you like well thought out menus and careful preparation then Lynn's is for you. Lynn must be the hardest working chef in the area. I really dont think we have ever been there when she is not in the back creating her magic. We have also used... More

This was our first visit to Lynn's Bistro, but it won't be our last! A bit deceiving from the outside, this restaurant offers wonderful service and fantastic food! We started with the shrimp ravioli in lobster sauce. Simply yummy. We then went to a soup course, I enjoyed the French onion soup while my partner enjoyed butternut squash soup, both... More

This was our experience on Thursday, October 9, 2014 We felt like we were in someone’s large living room with white tablecloths and chairs, no booths. Lynn herself might serve your food, cause she cooks and watches the crowd at the same time - the place only seats about 50 people or so….very small and very quiet. We went on... More

Absolutely the finest restaurant anywhere, Lynn Tran has done such a fine job of designing this restaurant that it leaves nothing to be wished for. She has had waiter Paul there, I believe since she opened it. Paul knows what you want and just how precisely has always inspired me. Absolutely perfect setting with the linen service. The table ware... More

Just stumbled upon this unexpectedly and how glad I am for that. It is definitely on the expensive side but the food is absolutely amazing. I had escargot which was good but the duck just stole the whole show. It was cooked to perfection, the reduction was just right and the potatoes that went with it were just divine. Our... More

Getting to the restaurant on Lake Washington Street was a challenge (walkers were going faster than we were) but after we arrived the experience was excellent. The drinks were well served/prepared and the selection, though limited, met all our needs. The food was delicious and well served. The value received is as good as you will find anywhere, especially the... More

We had one of the most fantastic meals ever. If you like roast duck this is the place. There were four in our party and each meal was as good as the next. Crab cakes, roast duck, wild salmon and rabbit. Excellent. Lynn's has a prefix dinner menu. $35 and $45.00 Salad, entree and desert. Very well priced for the... More

Lynn's Bistro is a very small, personal restaurant- the food is very, very good and the service is very good. It is basically a small room, the kitchen is at one end, and there are only a few tables. I don't know why someone would bring a small child here- this place is small and unless your child was fairly... More

We were visiting from Washington DC and were looking for great food with an intimate setting for a birthday dinner. This was it. It reminded us of a Paris bistro with white linen table cloths and fresh flowers. It only seats about 20 so make a reservation. Although we went on a Wed. night and had no problem walking in....

We went there for our wedding anniversary and had a intimate, wonderful meal. The best French onion soup ever. Great service. Not at all pretentious. Loved it.
