Came for a mid-week (Wednesday) dinner and it was excellent. It wasn't crowded so we got a waterside table. It was pleasant to see all the lights of the cars coming across I-90 and the city lights of Bellevue across Lake Washington. And as other...More

It was hot and we wanted a light meal by the water. This was our first time here and won't be our last. I had seafood Louie. Huge with plenty of seafood on it.

It's a truism that if you have the view, you don't need the food. Here you have the view and great food ... but fall short on service and maintenance. First: excellent piece of salmon can be added to any salad at a reasonable price....More

The view and service are lovely. This is a great neighborhood. The restaurant lighting and decor are dark and it has a cocktail lounge feel. The coffee was okay. The brunch food was marginal to dodgy.The potatoes were an inexplicable dry mound. The avocado scramble...More

If you google Daniel's at Leschi, it's in the same side of the street, about 3 doors down. It's right on the water. Parking's a breeze.

We opened The 3rd BluWater Bistro location in the Leschi neighborhood on March 13, 2004. Mick McHugh handed the reigns over to us after 22 successful years of running the Leschi Lake Cafe. With a slight remodel we cozy'd up the place, added some fantastic rollback windows, high back booths, some flat screen TV's, and leather furniture by the fireplace. The menu reflects all the goodness that a cozy bistro should offer, including the ever famous & popular "Lake Side Cafe" Fish and Chips... gotta keep the neighborhood happy. Stop in for some brunch on the weekends or some late night food.
