Diner Reviews
  • "Was happily surprised by Fin's prior to theater this weekend. Menu was broad, environment was very lovely for a pre-theater lunch. Bread offered prior to meal and on my sandwich were not noteworthy, but crème brulee dessert certainly was. I will return again for the great ambiance, service, convenience, and menu offerings."

  • "We had 4:30pm reservations (would have liked a 5:00 or 5:30 pm but not available) for dinner prior to attending the Issaquah Playhouse production of 'Funny Girl'. I had the NW Trio (halibut cheek, crab cake, and salmon) and substituted the white rice with the squash risotto and so glad I did; my meal was absolutely 'melt in your mouth'. My husband had the bacon wrapped scallops with the risotto, and he 'cleaned his plate' as well. When I made my OpenTable reservation, I made mention that I couldn't have any seeds nor nuts, because of having diverticulitis, and was impressed that, not only had they picked up on that remark from my reservation, but how attentive they were to my food requirements. Great Job, Fin Bistro!!"

  • "My daughter and I went to Fin's for the first time for a pre-theater dinner. The food was wonderful - we both had a dish that was recommended by our server and she didn't steer us incorrectly. Our server was one of the best I've ever encountered - she didn't "hover" (which both my daughter and I despise), but was available any time we needed her to be. We will definitely return."

  • "You can have both at Fins Bistro, even if you arrive at 10:30 am. At least that's what you would be led to believe by the menu, which included their lunch specials. But don't expect fries with your sandwich at that hour - the deep fryer hasn't even been turned on at that time. Which was ok because my wife really didn't want them, but did want the portobello mushroom sandwich on the lunch menu and was granted her wish. I got the Eggs Neptune, which featured Copper River Salmon that Fin's smokes on premise under an excellent hollandaise and a just right poached egg. The salmon is moist and flavorful, a balance not easy to find. "

  • "Disappointed with this visit. Bistro was not busy, but it took a long time for server to bring beverages. I ordered iced tea, and found it to be a flavored variety, though that was not stated, so it was returned. It took a very long time for a food to arrive. I witnessed other tables being offered a bread basket, but we not offered such, though our meal took a very long time to arrive. The onion soup was very sweet, not as savory as expected, certainly not worth the $3 up charge to the side for a sandwich."

  • "The service at Fin's was very nice. The brunch was good but nothing special. I have been to Fin's several times for dinner and would return. However I believe there are better options for brunch including Wildfin on Gilman and Jacks on Front street."

  • "Fins Bistro had some of the basic brunch items, but we enjoyed their variations. Crab Cakes Benedict, Huevos Rancheros and Trout and Eggs were our choices and they were wonderful."

  • "Fins is the best place for excellent food & outstanding staff. Everyone is very warm and friendly. The name Fins may lead you to think its all about sea food however that would be incorrect. Some of my personal favorites are not from the sea. If you are looking for great food with reasonable prices this is the place for you."

  • "We had a delightful evening and savored the entire experience. A warm and inviting venue with fresh flowers and Glassybabys on each table. Service from Sara was attentive, friendly and impeccable. We ordered the Filet Oscar (hubby) and NW Trio which included salmon, crabcake and halibut cheeks. The filet could be cut with a fork it was so tender and big claws of Dungeness crab topped it in a light bernaise sauce. The salmon was perfect and the halibut cheeks were like lobster. So Good! We finished with a NY cheesecake topped with fresh berries and whipped cream. Zul, the owner, stopped by to wish us Happy New Year and ask about how we were enjoying the meal. Very thoughtful and professional gesture - he really cares. Wonderful celebration!"

  • "We like eating here, the food and the drinks are exceptional. Service is good, even when the owner is not around, which is not very often. Recommended for their fish, great variety at good price."

  • "This is a true gem in Issaquah. We go here often and it is ALWAYS great. They really know what they're doing here, the food is always cooked beautifully and the waitstaff are really on top of things. They treat us like family - they remember the things my children have told them in the past and we "pick up where we left off" with each visit. You can't beat Fins for a lovely dinner before a show at the Village Theater, which is adjoining the restaurant. All in all we highly recommend this place for a high quality yet affordable dinner in a relaxed small-town atmosphere."
    Dined on 10/25/2013
  • "Great seafood dishes on the menu, signature dish is the crusted macadamia nut halibut w/ the Tai peanut sauce. Sarah gave us great table service all night long. A very nice wine list too!"

  • "Our server was fantastic. He was informative, friendly, accommodating, and knew exactly when and how to approach our table. We tried his reccomendations and they were fantastic. We loved our first visit and will definitely be back. thank you."

  • "Fins shares a wall with the Issaquah Village Theatre. 1/2 hour before show time the wall opens to the theatre lobby,making this an ideal spot for dinner and the show. The food is heavily laden with butter and the fish that I have had there on 2 different occasions was not very good. On my recent visit, I ordered the salmon. It came warm at best and not cook through even though I do like my salmon rare, this was just not cooked long enough and had probably sat out for a while as well. I think that the fish had been frozen. The sides of green beans and rice were also luke warm. All was covered with rich buttery sauce. Kitchen remade for me. However, our server was nice and friendly and the desert was good for some sugar before the show."

  • "If you are not regulers, service are very slow and not good. We have to call server to get service every time. Menues,water,drink,meal,check bill etc. I would not go back anymore."

  • "My parents were here from out of town, so they requested a seafood place. We had not been here yet, so we took a chance and made a reservation here. Everyone loved their food choices and the server was great to recommend wine to go with each meal. Great desert menu as well! I wouldn't recommend bringing children here. We sat outside on a nice warm evening and enjoyed the street happenings."

  • "This was our second time going to Fin's Bistro and this time we went for brunch. It is a small bistro in Issaquah downtown and has a cute outdoor seating on Front street. The food was good, the egg's benedicts were cooked correctly. The service was a bit lacking though, it took me 3 tries to get a refill for my coffee when it wasn't really busy at the restaurant."

    Dined on 8/3/2013
  • "I'd always avoided this place as it looked like one for small portions, high prices, and a crowd on theatre nights. Well, if the crowds come it is for good reason: great food at reasonable prices (2 reasons?). There's a healthy mix of seafood options, as everything is fresh and well-crafted. I'll go back."

  • "We have lived in Issaquah for 2 years and had not heard about this restaurant. Northwest platter was great especially the halibut. Thai pasta was outstanding. Waitress was friendly and not overbearing. Only issue was veggies were lukewarm. Definitely coming back for date night"

  • "Welcoming décor. Great smells emanating from the kitchen gets you into the dining mood. Wait staff was top notch. She knew the nuisances of the regular menu as well as the dinner specials. When asked, she did not hesitate to describe whether we should choose the lamb shank or the rack of lamb. The rack of lamb was very succulent and well presented. The copper River salmon was also delicious. A welcoming touch was when the owner stopped by to see if everything was to our liking."
