Location in a small strip mall type building. We had heard rave reviews from new friends about this restaurant. The service and food was just as we were told it would be - outstanding in every way. Small little bar / waiting area that became quite crowded as the evening wore on. We will be back for our next special... More

Wonderfully prepared food. Many great choices. Good wine. Great service. We went there twice during our three day visit. I enjoyed it every night.

Great food and service. Menu is great but please bring back the mixed grill. One of the best dishes was a beef medallion/halibut mixed grill. With that being said it is a great place to dine.

Hay J's Bistro is hidden in a small strip mall in Liberty Lake. It's easy to drive past (as I have on a number of occasions) but don't. Here is some of the best food you'll find off I-90. I landed there by recommendation of a hotel clerk who assured me the good was good. Oh, it's so much more... More

I had the pleasure of visiting this restaurant for the first time yesterday. This is a gem in the rough. The outside of the building is very deceiving if the inside experience. Our group of three had the crusted halibut, salmon, seafood trio, and calamari. All was delicious and plated to perfection. The non-formally, self taught chef prepares world class... More

There is a phenomenal restaurant just off I-90 in Liberty Lake, WA in a little strip mall next to a motel and gas station. The food is four-star, as is the service and if you go for dinner you better have reservations! We have enjoyed both lunch and dinner there and couldn't be more satisfied. Great wine list, great innovative... More

Wanting a get together with Summer C d'A resident friends prior to their return to Az, we reserved half way between C d'A and Spokane's south hill, in Liberty lake. And good thing we did as every table was full and during the evening quickly turned as diners left. The parking lot is too small but that is the only... More

We made a special trip from our Coeur d'Alene hotel to have supper at Hay J's Bistro. We were quite disappointed. Our server was very friendly but not very knowledgeable about wine. My husband had the lamb lollipop appetizer. It was a lamb chop from the rack of lamb cut. It was OK but nothing special. I had the calimari... More

Hay J's is a Liberty Lake neighborhood favorite and you need reservations for a 6 pm dinner on weekdays and most times on the weekend. Wander in around 8 pm Monday-Thursday though and you can usually get a table. I can never get over it's location, in the same building as a gas station, but the food, serivce and atmosphere... More
