We have been going to this restaurant from it's opening. Like so many other diners we have gotten to know Lynn. What a special chef.

A rainy night and just arrived in Kirkland....where to eat?? Cannot go wrong with Lynn's!! The Prix Fixe menu has wonderful choices....for $35!...got fabulous onion soup, a thick ribeye steak that was super tender and beautifully cooked with Gorgonzola sauce that wasn't overpowering the wonderful steak flavor...and a Creme Carmel for dessert!!Our waiter, Jesse, was friendly and enjoyable as well...

The food is wonderful & saves the terrible attitude of just one of the servers. He took a dislike to us going to him & telling him we had been waiting half an hour after being seated and that we would like some service. Tattoo's all over his arms,Surly & very rude he was throughout the whole meal. We mentioned... More

Lynn is a classically trained chef in french Cuisine and her sauces reflect that. Everything on her menu from the unsalted butter and fresh made french rolls to her delicious shrimp ravioli in lobster sauce is carefully thought out and presented in the most beautiful way. Her dining room has the atmosphere of eating in someones home and the service... More

We came here for the first time during restaurant week and had a delicious meal. My wife had the French onion soup and the crab cakes. She loved them both. I had the cream of carrot soup, which had a touch of coconut and ginger. Very nice indeed. I had the pork belly for my entree. It came with vegetables... More

We decided to try Lynn's for the first time. I'm very impressed. The food was perfectly prepared, service was 5 star!. We had a 7:30 reservation, the place is small, we had to wait about 15 minutes for our table.. Once we sat down, they were spot on. I'll be going back for sure.

This smaller restaurant is located in the heart of Kirkland. The atmosphere is cozy and quiet. The food is a blend of Asian and French fusion and is absolutely delicious! The chef and owner, Lynn, creates an interesting menu with weekly menu updates. Lynn is also very accommodating and let me "take out" French onion soup to my ailing mother... More
