Diner Reviews
  • "My daughters' birthday so we took her, and a friend, for dinner. The soups were delicious and well portioned. Substancial salads were very fresh with great combinations of ingrediants. Our waiter enhanced our overall experience. He was knowledgeable and attentive without being overbearing.. We had crab cakes, bison strips, and pork loins with scallops, all well prepared. Not a particularly large menu but it js well represented with plenty of interesting choices. Desserts also creative and homemade.., dont want to give away to much detail but definately worth a visit if you want a great dining experience in NN. A little pricey but still a value and you'll feel good about paying the bill and tipping your waiter..."

  • "This was our second dining experience at Fin. As with before, the food is fabulous and the service is great. Portion sizes for food was perfect as we didn't feel overly full when we left. The wine and drink list is great and the wait staff is awesome. Highly recommend for any occasion."

  • "Creative menu, mouth-watering specials from local farms, superb service and excellent wine. Must try the fried oysters with fresh pepper polenta, the foie gras is to die for, and the any tuna dish they make is blog worthy. This chef experiments with new flavors and never disappoints. if you want an on point dining experience to celebrate a special occasion, you don't have to drive to the beach - Fin brings it to you. BEST in Hampton Roads, hands down. Thanks for making our anniversary special!!"

  • "tepid temp food, 1980s flower dusted plate ( literally covered in some kind of green like parsley), choking on stems from the spinach with every bite of greens, bland salmon, a water glass that stayed empty from the bread through the dirty dish pickup, dishes that sat so long in front of me that i eventually piled them home style on the edge of the table, next to my still empty water glass. too much cost for little flavor, tepid food, poor service, and the general impression that the couple looking for a romantic dinner for their anniversary did not mean squat because of the table of 8 hotties. pretentious attempt to elevated gourmet that may serve well in Newport News but doesn't measure to any meaningful restaurant experience."

  • "This was our first visit to "fin". Amazing, the food was prepared absolutely perfect. The presentation of the food was beautiful also. A delicious selection beers and enough wines to fit anybody's taste and budget. Highly recommend fin."

  • "I recently moved to Newport News from Maryland. Foodie that I am, I thought I might not be able to find a go to restaurant that I knew very meal would be a great adventure. Imagine my surprise when I when I stepped into Fin. For sure it is a great seafood restaurant, but they do everything, and I do mean everything well. For those of you who love foie gras, get ready to be carried to heaven with their version. The closest I can come in one word is sublime. The staff are great and the atmosphere is mellow. If you have not been there and you live here or are visiting, you will not be disappointed."

  • "Love this place and their ability to impress from beginning to end EVERY time. The menu and plating change based on local produce, fish, and meats - each dish is always creatively designed and perfectly plated to make a memorable and share-worthy experience for even the best of foodies. Well traveled and top-notch taste-buds?? Fin won't disappoint. Ever. We recently attended a Tapas Tuesday and loved every course and pairing. Thank you for an awesome date night Fin crew!"

  • "I went there for lunch with my boyfriend and it was delicious! I got the pick 3 for $25 and he got the pick 3 for $15, it was a great deal for the amount of food we got, and of course everything tasted fantastically."

  • "My husband and I went to Fin on a Monday night to celebrate our anniversary. The restaurant grew a bit busy as the night went on, but our excellent service remained the same throughout the night. We tried the 5 course tasting menu with wine pairings. Each course and wine was wonderful. Servings were moderately small, but by dessert we were glad that they were. Each course made us hungry for the next leading up to a delightful "coffee and donuts" dessert. A perfect evening!"

  • "We came on a reservation but they would have had room for a walkin on a weekday. Food is very well prepared and presented. Our waitress was very new but took our food issues seriously. Would recommend them to anyone."

  • "Executive Chef Kenny is a genius. His five course tasting menu was outrageously awesome. Wine pairing was phenomenal. Truly the food was as good as at The Inn at Little Washington. Sunday nights are quiet and are a great time to go. Fridays and Saturday pretty busy. You will not be disappointed."

  • "My wife and I love Fin. We are foodies and travel all over Hampton Roads for great food and great wine. The food and the service at Fin are always great. Being from Yorktown, Fin is close enough to pick up some great food to bring home after a long hard day at work. Kudos to the staff and to chef Kenny!"

  • "Took advantage of Tapas Tuesday and totally enjoyed it. Wine pairings were spot on and complemented three offerings that were creatively presented and did not disappoint. Tuna was prepared to perfection, smoked pork with beans was beautifully paired and made for a perfect coda to the meal. Caution: Desserts are killers and are hard to resist. We've recommended Fin to several friends."

  • "My wife and I had dinner here for our wedding anniversary. The whole experience was spectacular. The wait staff let us take our cocktails to the bar to watch a work cup match end in penalty kicks, and then started our tasting menu when it was over. The food was exceptional and memorably creative. Wine pairings were phenomenal. Newport News has a real winner in Fin!"

  • "Had the seven course chef's tasting menu with reserve wines. The food and wine were wonderful. The portions are small but by the time you get to the fifth course you are glad they are small. Robert, our server, was very professional and knowledgeble. We also received an amuse bouche of a creamy corn base and later a sorbet made from honeysuckle blossoms both were delicious. A group came in for probably an office get together that had several people who liked to laugh very loud. One even liked to clap her hands while she laughed. This brought down the quality of my experience at Fin. The food and service are superb."

  • "A nice place for a weekend lunch without the wait. The menu options were great and beyond expectations for lunch."

  • "I really enjoyed the food....the atmosphere was quiet except when one of the patrons was displeased with their meal/price, it was a little awkward with management trying to talk over the customer when she simply wanted the check so she could leave."

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed everything about our anniversary dinner. It was excellent!"
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "Menu selection somewhat limited. Good wine list. Scollop plate was exceptional. Cobia dry, but edible. Found myself looking for the wait-staff on several occasions, even though the restaurant was nearly empty -- need to be more attentive. Had to ask for salt-pepper?? Generally acceptable, but overpriced."

  • "I stopped by Fin for dinner with my parents on our way to visit Norfolk. While the food was great, what impressed me the most was a very attentive service from the waiter. He made a lot of efforts in helping us decide on the dishes (appetizer, main and dessert) we should try, as well as a bottle of wine - reasonably priced. We had grilled bison and seared scallops for main, which were both excellent (though the scallop was a little bit salty to our taste buds). If I have a chance to be in the area again, Fin will be my choice to revisit."

  • "Our party of four had a wonderful dinner here a few nights ago. Service was impeccable, and all of the food was beautifully presented and tasted delicious. Starters included oysters on the half shell, sweet corn soup with jumbo lump crab meat, and an asparagus soup with lobster meat that was a special of the day. Entrees included seared scallops, flounder and butter poached crab, macadamia nut crusted salmon, and two soft-shell crabs that were a special of the day. Nice wine list, and the server made great recommendations and allowed us to taste before committing to buying a whole glass. A great fine dining experience! "

  • "The firecracker shrimp appetizer was good. The main course was strange. Black beans and rice just don't go well with crab cakes and the sauce was not appealing to the eyes or taste buds. Dessert was also not very good. S'mores cake had a strange taste to it and the crème brulee we ordered (only those 2 words on the menu) came out as orange dreamsicle flavored. It was foul and I would not have ordered it if I had known it was that flavor. Service was friendly enough but extremely slow - we were there early and the waiter had exactly 1 table - ours - but he was extremely inattentive and we sat around waiting for him a lot. "

  • "I met a friend at FIN for dinner -- it was centrally located between our two locations, requiring each to drive approximately 25-35 miles. Although a traffic incident on I-64 delayed my arrival by about 5 minutes, the hostess was warm and welcoming. The food was delicious -- the seared scallops couldn't have been prepared any better -- they literally melted in my mouth. The server was attentive without hovering -- our bottle of wine wasn't left on the table; however, each time our wine glasses were almost empty, she "magically" appeared with the bottle, poured and then quietly disappeared. I live an hour+ away from Newport News, but would be more than willing to drive here for another meal. "
