Lynn's is a perfect neighborhood bistro. It's a calm oasis of excellent food served in a small-town-posh atmosphere. My wife and I dine here on a regular basis and we're never disappointed. To our surprise, we often find ourselves saying that it's food doesn't quite...hold up against the French Laundry...in a neighborhood Bistro. Lynn's food is consistently good and often inventive. The service is always warm and reliable. Make Lynn's your go-to spot for date nights and you won't be disappointed.More

Four of us for dinner. All of us ordered the seafood ravioli which were like little ethereal pillows. So good. Also had seared foie with toast points that was excellent. Crab cakes are huge, but a bit bland for me. Someone else had duck with...cherries and liked it very much. The service was excellent, and the atmosphere sophisticated (white table cloths) but not overly formal. A perfect Sunday dinner.More

Lynn’s is a dining delight in Kirkland. It’s our go to for occasions and for relaxed meals out with friends. The dining room is small enough that it’s not too noisy for conversations. Whether you order a la carte or from the prix fixe menu...there are varied choices suitable for most palates. Portions are right sized and the sauces and desserts are elevated by Lynn’s French training. Don’t miss the crab cakes!! Nice reasonably priced wines and an attentive knowledgeable staff. What Lynn does in her very small kitchen is extraordinary and attractively priced.More

Good food, warm, friendly atmosphere, a tasteful experience. Our only downside was the parking. There isn't much. Being disabled, I was not looking forward to a five-block walk but as we pulled up, karma freed up a space for us--right out in front.

On our first and only time at Lynn's Bistro, was a lunch date. We found the venue to be quietly elegant with food to match -- and service with a smile. Plus the venue is well insulated so not noisy.

It's tough to decide which was better today - the food or the service. Both were wonderful. We had an excellent meal, as usual, and had a most attentive young man for our server. It was a birthday celebration and the average age at our...table was 70+, with hearing issues, etc. Lynn's is most accommodating, including a special request for a vegetarian crepe.More

I have been eating at Lynn's Bistro for 15+ years and never had a bad meal. Lynn is a French trained chef and has a wonderful menu. The restaurant is simple, tasteful and service excellent. The food is a good value for the quality, portions...and deliciousness. I think it's one of the best restaurants in Kirkland.More

Small intimate restaurant, good for romantic dinner for two or dinner with a few friends. Quiet atmosphere where you can actually have a quiet conversation. The food is amazing including the dessert! Service was also right on point. Try it out next time you are...out in the Kirkland area.More

We just had scallops and creme brulee out of the menu as we were not so hungry. It was delicious and huge portion! The decoration and songs are typically French even though the cheffe is of a Chinese nationality. Thanks a lot, we’ll come again.

They do have a good wine list, but since we are not beer drinkers I can not answer that question. There are MANY very good local wines from the Rogue and Applegate area. We particularly like Druid's Fluid from the Troon... More
