Diner Reviews
  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "Very nice restaurant with good food and wonderful presentation. Nice wine list, but pricey. Good for special occasions or to impress, but too expensive for a regular dinner spot."

  • "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. "

  • "Fin turned out to be an unbelievable surprise. Notwithstanding the great reviews, our expectations were measured. The food and the service turned out to be on par with the very best dining experiences we've had anywhere, including DC and NYC. We had the 5 course tasting menu, and every dish was perfectly executed -- several using some of the most modern techniques. We are looking forward to Fin the next time we are in the area."

  • "This was a return visit to FIN. Upon arrival we were greeted and taken to our table. We like FIN as it has new dishes to try. As an appetizer we shared an Oysters Rockefeller, which was cooked to perfection for me, but a little undercooked for my wife. Our entrees were scallops for my wife and crab cakes for me. Both were superb. All this was topped of with a bottle of a Sauvignon Blanc, which was just right for our meals. The service was excellent. We look forward to a return visit."

  • "Bianca, our server for the evening, was professional, knowledgeable, and a delight. She anticipated our needs and made wonderful recommendations for my wife's and my 5 year wedding anniversary. The cuisine, part of their new 5 course option, was fantastic. It was organized well for the pallet, came out exactly when it should, and delicious beyond belief. The Tuna Tartar with saracha iced cream was to die for. The pricing was appropriate for what we expected and the menu was pricey, but quality was beyond good. We will definitely return."

  • "My boyfriend and I splurged on the 5 course tasting menu with wine pairings. It was wonderful, each and every bite. The highest quality ingredients, the portions were larger that I have seen in other tasting menus at other restaurants. Specifically, the salmon dish and scallop dish (my favorite) were incredible. The wine pourings were a wee but small, especially since it is about $6 for each one, so we would have like them to be a little more generous - plus we are wine and foodies so there is never enough wine! Loved loved loved it - we will be back for sure!"
