Lynn is a classically trained chef in french Cuisine and her sauces reflect that. Everything on her menu from the unsalted butter and fresh made french rolls to her delicious shrimp ravioli in lobster sauce is carefully thought out and presented in the most beautiful way. Her dining room has the atmosphere of eating in someones home and the service... More

We came here for the first time during restaurant week and had a delicious meal. My wife had the French onion soup and the crab cakes. She loved them both. I had the cream of carrot soup, which had a touch of coconut and ginger. Very nice indeed. I had the pork belly for my entree. It came with vegetables... More

Had a table for 4 in the corner. Have been here about 4 times before and I think this was the best. Waiter was very friendly and helpful. We brought our own wine and champagne and he opened it no problem. We ate off the $35 and $45 prie fixe menu, 3 courses. Had the pate, French onion soup, rib... More

We decided to try Lynn's for the first time. I'm very impressed. The food was perfectly prepared, service was 5 star!. We had a 7:30 reservation, the place is small, we had to wait about 15 minutes for our table.. Once we sat down, they were spot on. I'll be going back for sure.

This smaller restaurant is located in the heart of Kirkland. The atmosphere is cozy and quiet. The food is a blend of Asian and French fusion and is absolutely delicious! The chef and owner, Lynn, creates an interesting menu with weekly menu updates. Lynn is also very accommodating and let me "take out" French onion soup to my ailing mother... More

Outstanding dinner. There are many restaurants in the wonderful city of Kirkland, and we've eaten in most of them. But our first visit to Lynn's was a real treat. And the food is the reason. All seven in our party chose different price fixed selections from the menu - and were delighted. And the wines are reasonably priced (something that's... More

I live up the street from Lynn's and my husband and I come here all the time, most recently for my birthday but we often come for Friday night dinners. That should say it all- it is worthy of a special occasion yet also great for any time. Consistently excellent service and consistently excellent food as Lynn is always in... More

Lynn's is an awesome little French bistro. Lynn is an awesome lady who owns and runs the place. I like the three or four course selection that she offers for a set price. The only thing that is slightly off putting when you see it from the street is the tacky dog grooming place on the far right corner of... More
