The good and the bad: First, the good: I had the Salmon entree and it was excellent. Cooked perfectly. We had the mussels as a starter and they were pretty good as well. The bad: My wife had the Pork Tenderloin and it was overcooked. The rest of her plate was pretty much unremarkable. Our waiter was a seasoned one and did a pretty good job but during the middle and end of our meal was not available as much as you would normally expect. The restaurant was a bit under 50% occupied. The thing that bothered us the most was that there was an automatic 18% gratuity applied to the bill. We had read about this when learning about the restaurant. But, the tip was factored using the cost of our meals and the tax together. That's a big no no. The tip really came closer to 23%. I would consider myself a good tipper and when all was factored in this evening, I would have tipped in the 15%-18% range (probably 18%). The restaurant's tip was a fair amount percentage wise than we would have desired to tip. The tip should be our decision based on the level of service (TIPS: "To Insure Prompt Service). I know the difference was only a few dollars but this same math would be applied to all patrons regardless of the service. We will not be back.

Response from the owner - 3 months ago
Dear Rocky Mountain, I would like to apologize for you not receiving the meal and service that you deserve and that we take great pride in. I am also concerned about your comment regarding the automatic gratuity. In order for me to rectify this, I hope that you will give me some additional information so that I may research your check and find out why you had an automatic gratuity added and why it wasn’t calculated correctly so that this doesn’t happen to anyone in the future. Please contact me at your convenience at the email or phone number listed below. Again my apologies and I hope we can connect soon. Sincerely, Naja Hogander Director of Outlets nhogander@destinationhotels.com 425.889.0303

I ordered the steelhead, but received the salmon -- an entirely different dish. What I got was OK, I didn't want to hold up dinner to fight the issue. My fish and my wife's pork tenderloin were both overcooked and under seasoned. The restaurant seems to cater to elderly Kirklandians who have money but I guess who don't know food. The restaurant is more pretentious than what they are actually accomplishing. Our waitress seemed very full of herself and didn't recognize when she was screwing up -- probably because she was working very hard to butter up a table of "whales" at the end of the restaurant. Still, what were we -- chopped liver?

Response from the owner - a year ago
Dear Jim: Firstly, please allow me to thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. I am disappointed to hear your perception of our service and that you received the wrong type of fish. Certainly, it is never our intention to make a guest feel as though they are chopped liver. Our goal is to bring a dining experience together in which people of all walks of life feel comfortable joining us and enjoying what Bin on the Lake has to offer. While your online feedback allows us to look back on our service for that night and look for ways to improve, I only wish that you had given us the opportunity to make it right for you in that moment. I truly believe that, given the opportunity, we could have recovered your perception and ensured that you left with having had a memorable experience that you would want to repeat. Should you change your mind and want to give us another opportunity, please contact me directly and I will ensure that the details of your visit are just right. In the meantime, I remain, at your service. Warm regards, Brandi Hyder Director of Hotel Operations bhyder@destinationhotels.com

Where to start...how about the stuffy lounge area with no air circulation and windows and doors nailed shut? Or how about being told that our group of 8, sitting alone in the stuffy side lounge were too loud? (Um, it's not a library). Or being charged a service fee for two bottles of wine bought by two people ? In a bar? Strange. Would they have charged us a fee if we ordered separately? Service was lacking, we poured our own refills. When I advised the hostess that we were displeased with the auto-gratuity, she sent over a very hostile little weasel of a manager who aggressively defended the restaurant. Their loss...I'm a 40% tipper.

Food was quite good and very unique. Service was also excellent and pleasant. Have returned a few times since first visit.

Food was solid albeit a bit overpriced. Service (for a large group) was poor. They said they had a dozen oysters but came out with 6. They opened two bottles of wine and served it but they left and took another ten minutes before opening the white wine. When our entrees arrived they told one person they ran out of the dish he ordered. Why didn't they tell him earlier so he could have food with the rest of us?

Went here for mothers day a few weeks back with my daughters and had the loveliest brunch! Delicious mimosas, a colorful fruit plate, and entrees cooked to perfection. My younger daughter was a little miffed that the plates were smaller than say, The Cheesecake Factory, haha, but it was tasty and healthy - exactly what we needed! I have been here with my Husband, too, and their Halibut is fantastic.

Awesome food! We ordered a dish we didn't like but the waiter got us the ahi which was perfect and didn't charge for the other meal even tho we ate some of it. Great atmosphere and the waiters really take pride in their work and are really knowledgeable! We will definitely come back for another special occasion (over 50 mile drive)!

Everything here IS good, but it's also on the pricey side. The happy hour brings prices down to where they should normally be. However, if atmosphere and wine selection are what you're looking for, it doesn't get much better than this. Worth the money for a special night out.
