Located right on the lake with great views and a wonderful setting, but with average, overpriced food in a snooty atmosphere. Definitely better choices in Kirkland. Two of us walked out with close to a $200 bill and average food.

This is a very nice restaurant with a great view I was happy that I decided to try it out after seeing it so many times when I've been at the marina. The people were very pleasant and helpful especially when it came to choosing from a very wide variety of wines and that was only looking at the reds.... More

This is a good place for a breakfast meeting with a few friends - the staff is always friendly and the food is good. Booths provide a good place for conversation.

Came here for dinner last weekend. Great location/view overlooking Lake Washington. Food was ok, not particularly outstanding/memorable but not terrible either. I ordered the crab cakes for appetizer. Felt they were on the dry side (too crumby with not enough crab and sauce). Ordered the King Salmon for main entree. Cooked well but the filet still had bits of bone... More

Came out to visit our daughter. Stayed at the Woodmark Hotel and had a wonderful experience with Troy and Liz in Bin on the Lake. Chef Natasha's salmon was fresh, delicate, and seasoned perfectly. My daughter had the shrimp and grits which is local to our hometown. Great wine, exceptional service, and fun times! Thanks Bin on the Lake for... More

We went first time to Bin on the Lake for dinner, and we loved it. The views from most tables overlooking Lake Washington are spectacular, and this is matched by the service, food and atmosphere. We had some great food, and service was outstanding. Will definitely come back again for a special occasion, or just because...

We arrived forty-five minutes late for our reservation after a horrendous Husky-game commute - but we'd phoned and they'd graciously agreed to save our beautiful lake-view table till we got there. We were promptly greeted, valet-parked and seated, and then immediately reseated when we explained the surrounding conversations made it difficult for us to talk to each other. Once settled... More

Took my girlfriend to the Bin for a celebratory meal. The restaurant has really nice views across the marina which we enjoyed, the scallops were tasty and the sides were excellent. However, the steak itself was a little disappointing, not hugely buttery and a little dry, and the meal was extremely salty. The service was also excellent at the start... More

I ate here 2 nights in a row with colleagues. If you like steak, mine was the best I have had in years, literally. Positives: outstanding service, nice menu but not vast, nice wines, great apps (Brussels sprouts were fantastic), nice interesting desserts. Colleagues said the lamb was super and pork tenderloin also great. Negatives: the salmon was definitely a... More
