The food was really great--some of the best duck I have ever had. All six of us enjoyed the food and drinks. This is a great option in Kirkland that is smaller and feels more "local". The service was a little slow at the beginning but the wonderful food made up for it.

We decided to visit this restaurant based on Tripadvisor's reviews. It is definitely worth the visit. A really nice environment with a very nice menu and wine list. Everything we ordered was excellent with one exception - we didn't like the onion soup... We found this unusual at a french restaurant but did not consider it a major inconvenience as... More

Have enjoyed many a dinner here but just recently discovered Lynn's for lunch. Our party sampled several items but by far the Crab Cakes were the number 1 hit of the day. Like every other visit service was attentive. Still a challenge to find parking in Kirkland - it is getting worse every day but it may be in part... More

Dining at Lynn's has the feeling of mom and pops restaurant but the feel of luxury service. The food was meticulously prepared and the dining was well attended. The set menu is a great way to try the variety of cuisine at a reasonable price. Since we are in Washington, the Washington wine is a fitting choice to compliment the... More

Female Vietnamese French trained chef with limited, but delicious European menu. Food is superb, service attentive, prices reasonable and atmosphere mundane. Also, she has a great lunch menu. Good choice to try a really wonderful local restaurant.

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
