Fantastic food, fantastic
Fantastic food, fantastic service. This is a great restaurant for those special occasions. This is not a huge chain restaurant with good but boring food. It is a small, neighborhood restaurant with personable service and an innovative menu.

Great local food
The food was fantastic, fresh and perfectly cooked, and our server was very knowledgeable. I would recommend this restaurant. The other servers helped their fellow server's tables, and they were great with the teamwork aspect of working in the consumer field. However, we did find it strange that the servers, while on duty, ate their own food at a table on the floor while their sections were still full, when we were in the middle of eating ourselves. That part seemed unprofessional. Breaks, including meal breaks, shouldn't be taken on the floor during your shift. Being from a restaurant background myself, that would never be allowed at a chain restaurant , let alone at a fine dining restaurant.

This is a great restaurant,
This is a great restaurant, with very good seafood, and a whole bar. As it is adjacent to the Issaquah Village Theatre, it gets really busy before performances, so, if you are not going to the play, try to be there afterwards.
We always enjoy the service, and eating outside, they have gas heaters.
Their prices are very reasonable.

We are frequent diners and have always been welcomed and treated like family when we dine here before the show. They always have great variety and it's always fresh. Highly recommend.

After theater dining
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.

Wonderful neighborhood restaurant!
I love Fin's Bistro and usually come for lunch. This was my first time for dinner and it was exactly what I was seeking - a quiet, intimate restaurant for catching up on life with an old friend from out of country. Perfect ambience and the food is simply wonderful.

We have lived in Issaquah
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

Not just for the theatre crowd
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.

Good choice for a quick brunch
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.

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.

I have eaten at Fins many times. Every time the food was excellent, the wait staff great and very good choices for wine by the glass.

Couldn't have aqsked for a better venue for a quiet business lunch. Service and food was perfect and they didn't rush us at all.
Great value for your business dollar.

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!

Always a delight
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.

One of the best places in Issaquah
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.
