We had escargot, rib eye steak and creme bulle. They were all excellent. Parking was a problem. We had driven round a couple of times before getting a parking space.

I have been to Lynn's two times in the past 3 months. Three months ago, the quality was fantastic and food cooked to order. One week ago, the quality was poor and 2 of 4 orders were messed up. I ordered salad dressing on the side & they mixed it in. Another order for filet mignon was overcooked by a... More

The place greets you with abundant smells of grease that are impregneted in the walls. The greeter and the service were barely ok. Age group of customers was around 65. Minimal menu with "French" emphasis. I ordered a crepe with Gruyere and apple. Because there wasn't anything else appealing. This is an awful match, very greasy and overly sugary. Nothing... More

Lynn's Bistro is a small restaurant in a older set of buildings in downtown Kirkland. The food is excellent and Lynn, the owner and chef, is very visible. The only downside to our last visit was the service was slow, which is the reason for the 4 star.

White tablecloths, young chef, quaint restaurant, excellent service, best scalloped potatoes we have ever eaten, best swordfish I have ever eaten, best vegetables to ever be served in a restaurant with the perfect sauces on everything, best onion soup ever that was NOT salty like the usual. We did not have their well known rabbit because they were out. We... More

Hidden in a nondescript storefront lies a quaint, reasonably priced French restaurant where the service is cordial and the food is magnifique. Great for date nights. The atmosphere is casual, a step up from a bistro but not formal. Intimate, but not for those seeking dimly lit dining. With only a dozen or so tables, reservations are a must. It's... More

I was introduced to Lynn's Bistro two years ago, by a friend. What a find! It's elegant, the food is delicious, & definitely a place you want to try! The menu is varied, the atmosphere is quiet & distinguished, but not "stuffy." It's also great for entertaining business associates. The service is impeccable, prices are moderate, but definitely worth every... More
