My husband and I had a romantic evening with Champagne and dinner. We had the Halibut. It was excellent. We really enjoyed the evening.

I live in Portland, and work in the Seattle area part-time. So I'm always surprised when I come across a place that should be crowded and it isn't. The paid parking might dissuade some people, but after 7 PM it's free and the restaurant validates before 7. My pea & Gorgonzola salad was perfect, and my friend's flat iron steak... More

The entire staff was helpful and super friendly, Sarah, EJ, Stormy and the manager Todd were the people who helped us. Todd even stopped by the table to make sure everything was ok and let us know if there was anything we needed to let him know. We sat outside and the view is beautiful. From start to finish we...

Dinner last night at Bin on the Lake was awesome! It takes quite a bit for me to feel compelled to write one of these reviews, and my experience there last night shouts 5-stars. From the moment we were seated, our server (Dan) was on it. Super attentive, he was at the table topping up our wine before I could... More

Went to Bin the other night with friends from out of town. Looked at the reviews on Trip Advisor and was excited to try it out. When we got there, I was excited to see that they were offering a summer menu. The corn and crab chowder was amazing! One of the best soups I have ever had. Then, I... More

Great service. Beautiful view secondary to waterfront location. Food is good but overpriced. You can find better place nearby

Bin's location offers great views of Lake Washington and is perfectly set to enjoy the sunset. However, that's where the great part ends. The menu is not inventive and the preparations are average. One of the meals in our group was not cooked properly - a basic mistake that you wouldn't expect for the price point. I also found the... More

Enjoyed sitting with my friends having a cocktail and sipping wine on the patio outside. We ordered some oysters and shrimp which were excellent. The fried salad they need to work on, it wasn't up to the standard of the rest of the food.
