Le Grand Bistro Americain is in a great location, lakeside to Lake Washington and with a fabulous view over the lake.

However it not just for its good looks that I recommend this restaurant, the food & service are top notch.

Service is prompt, the staff are very knowledgeable & helpful and the food is delicious. What more could you ask for :-).

Overall a great place to eat, highly recommended.

Nice location by the marina with views over the lake. This is a very large restaurant space with a corresponding lack of atmosphere - don't go here for your romantic dinner. Too many people bring children here, and it's busy and echo-ey and not as upmarket as it would like to be. Customers here really don't dress up.

Service when we went wasn't great - our server forgot our starter, which became apparent when the main course was brought out. They did apologise and offer us a free glass of wine, but I would have preferred the food. The boeuf bourgignon tasted great, but without a starter, I was left feeling hungry. I ended up ordering a dessert I wouldn't have chosen by preference just because I needed more food.

We eat at Le Grand Bistro often - and it never disappoints. The waiters are knowledgeable and the service is very good. The view over Lake Washington toward the setting sun is great. We love their mussels, the duck, the steak and frites, but their specials, which often include local seafood in unique preparations are always outstanding.

This was our first time at Le Grand, taken there and treated by our daughter & son-in-law. It was during restaurant week so I had the $33.00 special with a tasty soup, ample portion of trout and a rich mint ice cream.

Service was a bit slow at first as it took quite a bit of time for my Campari & soda to arrive and for our orders to be taken. After that, things came fairly quickly. It was at a peak time so there are no complaints.

The atmosphere is outstanding, on the waterfront with many yachts in view.

Had lunch with friends. Food was excellent especially the soup and desserts. Burger was a bit above average. Service was mixed with the waiter being excellent but assistants were only average at best; they forgot requests and had to be reminded.
