Very nice place. The service was excellent. Jason, went out of his way to contact me, regarding a reservation that I had made online. The view was awesome. The wine list is fantastic. The food portions weren't huge, but that really didn't matter to me. Everything was very nice.
Food was overpriced and not that good. Wine was way overpriced. I could go to any fancy restaurant in Seattle for those prices and have a much better meal, Would not visit again.
We love the restaurant. Everything we ordered were great. We would go back; although they forgot we were there to celebrate a birthday.
Salmon and steak were over cooked and dry. Scallops were under cooked and had no dear. $240 including tip for 3 and 1 glass of wine is outrageous given lack of quality in the food offered. Several other great restaurants even on the Eastside. This one keeps getting worse.
Beautiful view , a very lovely menu offering steak and seafood . The presentation of the food is a masterpiece. I just ate at the bar if this was 5 star there I'm sure it's just as fantastic at a table. From the moment I checked in with the hostess to being serve to leaving I felt so welcomed and very comfortable especially Dining alone.
We bought a groupon $30 for $60 coupon. With the coupon the food cost seemed cheap initially, but the portions were really small so it’s more on the expensive side even with a coupon. My kids ordered steak from the kids menu and it was $26 each for about 2 oz. and we ordered the duo which was $60 for two people.
The ambience is great since it’s right on the lake Washington from Kirkland.
We ordered the Sea Crust Prime Rib Special, and it was amazing. It melted in our mouths, and the whole dish and sides were flavorful. Our waitress was amazing. She was attentive and enthusiastic, and she gave us the best service.
One of the best restaurants in the area food is always delicious service is always outstanding. They also have one of the best happy hours in the area
I have gone to Bin on the Lake in the past and been very happy with it. I was not pleased this time with our Christmas Eve Dinner and thought a $100 for an average main course, salad and glass and a half of wine was a poor value.
The Caeser salad came with a sweet dressing which was most odd. I sent the salad back and the waiter did go downstairs and get a more traditional Caeser dressing and some anchovies. This was nice. However, he served the salad with the dressing on the side in a plastic to go container. For $100 dinner, I don't want to have to mix and dress my own salad from a to go container.
The fish served was a cod which was good and fresh, but the relish with it was heavy with bacon/salt pork. When people order fish, they are often not meat eaters, so why overpower a nice delicate fish with pork or bacon. I basically had a dish that tasted like bacon and I wanted fish. Bad choice.
The potatoes served with the fish were gummy like they had been over whipped or sitting too long or both. Not light and fluffy. I realize they were mixed with cauliflower, but they were still odd looking. Kind of a tan color which one wouldn't expect from a mix of cauliflower and potatoes.
The service was okay, but not stellar. For a location and level of restaurant this is, you would expect top notch service. Our waiter was no more polished than you would find at a lesser restaurant. The wine was good, but we always notice the wine prices are among the highest in Kirkland.
The setting is lovely which is probably the reason for the inflated prices. I will go again for happy hour, but probably skip dinner for the near future.
Beautiful setting with a lovely view of the water. Too bad the food was mediocre at best. Stale focaccia, over cooked chicken, nondescript sauces. Very disappointing.
