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

We love Lynn's. The food and service are both amazing. Plenty of wine selections. Very quaint, small restaurant with white table clothes but still casual. The crab cakes are the best anywhere. Highly recommended.

We both got the prix fixe menu, I had the rib eye, my husband had the filet mignon. Both were delicious, although I could only eat about half of mine. The desserts are good, to. The crème brulee was yummy.

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.

Thank Randy S
