“Excellent Food, Ambiance and Service”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

I had a friend in town from the East Coast and thought I would bring her to a place in my neighborhood. I chose Bin and what a great decision! The food was amazing, the ambiance (outdoor seating on a beautiful sunny night on the water) was spectacular and the service was very good. Will look forward to my next visit!

“Can't beat the view”
Reviewed 5 July 2014 via mobile

We were staying at the Woodmark and stopped in for Happy Hour. They had a great variety of wines to choose from. While we didn't eat we saw lots of great looking food being served to adjacent tables. Only sorry we didn't have time to return and try their food. Very attentive servers,

“Nice Location, Everything Else Uneven”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

Think about it, there's really only a very small handful of fine dining restaurants right on Lake Washington. And this is one of them. Nice location. Great atmosphere and view. 5-stars.

Good service, with a nice slow pace like we wanted but at times we felt borderline forgotten. 4 stars. Those wanting more attentive service should temper their expectations.

Food was was in the 3 to 4 star range, average 3.5 stars. Nothing bad, nothing exceptional. We had risotto, salmon, shrimp pasta, trio app, popcorn, etc.

Price - you are paying big time for the rare Lake WA waterfront location in the upscale Carillon Point. 3 stars.

3.5+ stars. A-okay! I could easily round up and give it 4 stars but it's better to go into a place like this with lower rather than higher expectations in my opinion.

“seafood at its best”
Reviewed 3 June 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

romantic, warm venue with friendly staff.
scrumptuous Northwest cuisine with excellent wine pairings.
we thoroughly enjoyed the foie gras, asparagus/egg, and oysters to start.
We share family style (3) the scallops with white truffle,
copper river salmon and lamb osso buco with white truffle.
Ideal pairing for the appetizers was prosecco and truffle/lamb/seafood was damilo barolo.
Coming from Hawaii, the Washington cuisine was absolutely wonderful and our first nite waiter enjoyed himself as much as we did.
