  • It's "ok" but not awesome
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 9/14/2014
    We went on a Sunday night and expected it to be quiet and we correct. It livened up around 7 - 7:30 but was not over busy. I can imagine that Friday and Saturday nights can be packed. The Wine and Beverage list was excellent and the menu proved to be not overly long but still had something for everyone. We ordered a couple of cocktails which were good but, frankly, a little over-priced for what they were. The olives for start were very good and we ordered a total of 5 Tapas dishes which was just about right. In the end my rating is based on the fact that we paid $107 for the two of us. The food was tasty but not rock your socks off awesome. Finca is not terribly disappointing at all and I am sure others will love it.

    My friend and I love to dine out every week and try different Salt Lake restaurants. We have been to Finca a few times before and have found it to be hit and miss. We thought that with the time of year that the "farm to table" options would make it a hit. Between our server and the quality of food we have scratched this one off our list. Food took way too long and was completely over cooked. Our server became confrontational when we complained. We were pretty much ignored for a good 30 minutes after we were done and had to find someone to give us our check. No restaurant is this "cool". Better options for small plates elsewhere

    I had heard mixed reviews about Finca, but wanted to give it a try and I have to say it was an abysmal evening, from soup to nuts. Our waiter was very nice, but he vanished often. I had to ask two other waiters for our wine (which was disappointing), the food was not good, they ran out of one of the dishes and didn't tell us until after the previous two had already been finished so we had to wait even longer. By then we were so frustrated, we just decided to leave so we went to the hostess to ring up our bill and we were overcharged for one item, which was very uncomfortable to have to negotiate. The acoustics indoors are awful, but we sat outside, where it was lovely. It was a most memorable birthday dinner, but not for the right reasons.

    Our server, Alec (or Alex), was fantastic. Knowledgeable about the bev and food menu, and his easy going style really made our night perfect. It was a bit noisy and the tables were a little close together but it's perfect for a Spanish tapas restaurant so no complaints. The scallops topped with crispy garlic, the melt in your mouth ribs and the fideo...amazing! But I will always highly recommend anything that Scott Evans does.

    Food was very good here. We ordered the beet salad, pork ribs, paella and churros for dessert. All were excellent .... drink list very good too. Disappointed in the hostess. Requested a booth and advised they were reserved. We didn't have a reservation??? And then throughout our entire meal, nobody was seated in the booth we had pointed too. Very unprofessional. The waitress was nice ... attentive and always checked up on us.

    My wife and I dined at Finca August 12, and had a very enjoyable evening. The restaurant was modern and open with a partial view of the kitchen. The noise level wasn't bad, but I imagine it could get loud with a full restaurant. The drink menu was extensive, and had some great cocktails. My wife enjoyed the Irish coffee cocktail and used it as a nice dessert substitute. The food was enjoyable with the offering of Spanish Tapas. There were some traditional Spanish Tapas like croquetas, and some non-traditional ones. Everything was delicious and we especially liked the potato tapas and the honey carrots tapas. I would recommend for a nice evening.

    This was our second visit to Finca and once again the food did not disappoint. Service on the other hand was nothing like our first visit in a not good way. The waiter seemed to forget our small table and concentrated on his bigger tables. When asked about long wait time between dishes he responded "let me go shake the tree" as if the problem was in the kitchen. Three times for that quote including getting us the check. The service at our first visit was outstanding with the waiter explaining the dishes as they came out and making suggestions so that is reason for the comment about inconsistency. The food is great, I'll go back and I would recommend this restaurant despite the service on this occasion.

    Food is the main event here, but service and ambience only bolster positively. The Papas y Aioli is always a wonderful starter along with any salad, especially any containing beets. The wine list is respectable and appropriate for the cuisine, we chose a nice Tempranillo this time, which pairs well with the more savory and complex dishes. This place is always a pleasure.

    I'd heard a lot of good things about this restaurant, and I was a bit disappointed. It was good, but nothing special. The menu was quite small considering it was all small plate tapas and there should be a large variety. The food was kind of meh for the most part, all was good, but not exciting and tasty like a tapas place should be. The drinks were incredibly small as well.

    My husband and I were on our way to Park City, but were spending a few hours in Salt Lake City and wanted a place for dinner. We found FINCA on Opentable, saw positive reviews and decided to give it a try. It was excellent. Everything was delicious: snap pea salad, the mushroom dish (can' recall the name); lamb & beef meatbals; pork-stuffed peppers; chicken crochets; and mussels. All of it was great and the server was friendly, knowledgeable and welcoming. I wish I could transport this place back home! I would become a regular!

    This place is absolutely beautiful. Not only is the food just amazing, but the service is exquisit. Our waiter seemed like he was genuinly interested in what we thought of the food and he treated us like he was just wanting us to have a good time, and not working for a tip. Really a genuine good guy. Hope to see him again! Other waiters came to refill our waters constantly, and everyone was so kind. Also the plates and the way they organized the food on the plates was absolutely beautiful! The stone plates are BEAUTIFUL! I want them for my home! Of course it is a little pricey for me and my husband, but we love to come to just escape every day life. Beautiful food, beautiful enviornment, sweet hosts and waiters! We will be back for more!

    Went for tapas and cocktails early on a Friday night and had an absolutely delightful time. The cocktails were creative and delicious and the tapas were all superb. We sat outside, and while it was on a fairly busy street, it didn't seem overly loud or intrusive. I did notice, as we made our way through the restaurant after dinner, that the inside seemed much more...energetic... than the patio. Service was very good. I will definitely be returning.

    Forget fries, get the Papas y Aioli, Cerdo…the seasoning on the potatoes and the aioli is simply fantastic. The chicken croquetas and the lamb/pork meatballs (Albondigas) are always a favorite. The flatbread with artichokes (Coca De Alcachofa) and was amazing. Tirado y Piquillo – Wood smoked pork stuffed in piquillo peppers! The pork has so much flavor and stuffed in a pepper; you can’t go wrong with this one. Don’t usually try desserts but tried the Churros and Coconut Tres Leches...OMG! However, the churro and chocolate dipping sauce is absolutely divine! Love Tres Leche and I love coconut, put those two together and WOW! The patio is open, the ambience is wonderful…don’t miss out on Finca!

    I like Finca, I do! But the last couple of visits have been really uneven service-wise. My last visit, I ordered iced tea and was served a sweet red punch. I admit, I'm a tea snob. I'd like iced tea... Not red punch. What I got was a Tisane. It wasn't tea. The waiter was arrogant and kind if snotty about it. It was a black mark for Finca.

    We sat outside and you get what you get from a place that is boardered by relatively busy streets. But the food was very very good. Presentation, portion and food quality were excellent. There was a bit of redundancy in the sauces and pickled onion garnish, but nobody is perfect. I will return to finca and try everything on every menu. I highly recommend you do too.

    We've dined at Finca before but this was our first time for Sunday Brunch. It was good but not quite up to Funca standards for lunch and dinner. It was Mother's Day and try might have needed a couple more servers. It was a little chaotic and service was sporadic.

    These guys at Finca know what they are doing. Best tapas restaurant in Utah, hands down. Why? Because they serve beautiful and flavorful dishes, their service is excellent and the prices are great. An overall great dining experience if you want a taste of Spain. We went there for brunch for Mother's Day with my wife and daughter and everybody loved it. Their potatoes with pimentón (smoked paprika), their eggs with chorizo, their tapas with seafood or Serrano ham...AND their presentation and attention to detail, bar none! One more thing: the food comes out in a timely manner, never delayed, giving you time to enjoy previous dishes. Desserts, after dinner drinks and coffees are all outstanding as well. AND if you drop by, waiting isn't bad.
