"Was there for restaurant week with mom visiting from out of town, and it's the sort of experience that made me realize that for restaurant week might have actually backfired for these guys. Food was very blah- meat was too salty, one of the oysters was like the janky one that's like a half-formed fetal oyster, and everything was mini-appetizer-sized (probably to maximize the restaurant week prices, but ounce for ounce you might as well just order the regular meal).
Wine list was fine, and they offer a lot of decent wines by the glass. It's more a place to go to sit and watch the sunset while having a drink, not so much for a dining experience.
Bill came out to just under $200 with tip, and I would have clearly gone someplace else for that price-- what made it sting less was our waiter Dan, who went to a lot of effort to make sure we were feeling attended to, being quick to address any issue we had with our food or wine.

"Loved my Lavender Lemon Drop cocktail! Menu was limited but covered all of the bases. Entrees and sides sounded interesting in descriptions and while executed fine did not taste as interesting as expected. Dessert was my highlight of the evening in the food department, a Chocolate Malt Mousse with Brandied Cherries. Service was pleasant and generally efficient. It was chilly so we dined window side but would love to return and dine al fresco on the waterfront."

"This restaurant used to be fabulous with high end food tastefully and beautifully prepared. We were so disappointed. Service took forever and then the bartender did not make our drinks right. The food was just okay. Here it is spring and their menu still offers up a Fall salad? Appetizers were odd. Cold potatoes with ahi? No flavor to the food and the crab was fishy. Over priced and very disappointing."

"I was meeting with an old friend and chose Bin on the Lake for its reviews, setting by the water, and award winning wine list. They did not disappoint. From the moment we entered we were greeted with warmth and the entire experience was beyond my expectations. The service was impeccable, wine amazing, and the food delicious. I will be back."

"I have been to Bin on the Lake before, but mostly later in the evenings for wine drinking and occasional appetizers. I had been impressed with the experience, so when my girlfriend and her mother came to town for the weekend, we decided to have dinner here.
I know it is not always the case, but going earlier in the evening proved to be perfect, as it was not as busy, thus being quieter and allowing for the pace of the dinner experience to be fully appreciated. We were not rushed, nor felt the need to do so based on noise, crowds, etc.
Service was, as usual, very good. The servers are friendly and engaging, though not too intrusive. However, there is a fine line between being non-intrusive and largely absent; on occasion, they can border on being the latter through the course of the dinner. But that was a very minor criticism when factoring in the whole experience.
The food was cooked perfectly, well-seasoned, and in good portions. Wine selection - their primary stock-in-trade - was excellent and diverse. Prices are higher for the entrees, but again, for special occasions or a date night, they are well within reason in comparison to other places where one would tend to go for similar experiences.
Bin on the Lake is a gem in the Kirkland wine and dining scene. It has yet to disappoint, and I/we will definitely go back."

"Really nice wine selection. Here for restaurant week and not sure if they put their best dishes on the menu. We had oysters, carrot bisque, steak, scallops, cheese platter, and the ricotta cheese doughnut holes. None of them were spectacular or were very noteworthy. The view was beautiful though."

"Went for Seattle Restaurant Week. The waitstaff was very patient with us as we took forever to decide on drinks, but brought our food and drinks very promptly once ordered. All our food (and the two wines I chose) was divine, especially the Wagyu flat-iron steak. When I pointed out that the waiter forgot to bring the wine I asked for with my entree, he got it quickly and took it off my bill.
The interior lighting was very, very dim. I'm sure it's perfect during the day with all of the huge windows overlooking the lake, but for a late dinner, it was quite dark."

"Nice location with great views. The food was just "ok". Oysters were very gritty - more so than normal and the halibut could have been terrific but it was dry and over cooked."

"With tables only feet from Lake Washington, the view is always phenomenal. Add excellent food and attentive service, throw in sparkling sunset-lit waves and you have a perfect setting for a special dinner. With food, service and ambience like this, every dinner becomes special!"

"This restaurant was formally the Yarrow Bay Grill. It was one of the best in the area. When it changed the food was not what it used to be. However, they have definitely brought the quality back to where it used to be. The preparations are imaginative and well thought out. Our waiter, Dan was wonderful. He has great knowledge of wines and was a delight to talk to. I highly recommend this restaurant."

"I went to the Bin on the Lake on the 1st day of March for a romantic evening and had a great time. Our server Troy was attentive, knowledgeable and made our outing great. Even though it was a blustery March evening, the view of the lake gave it that cozy feeling that added to the occasion. I always enjoy eating here and look forward to dining outside in the summer."
