  • "Obviously, when you have a restaurant in a hotel you automatically think a step below. At the last minute, I tried to book a reservation from a few higher rated restaurants. Not sure what to expect, I went ahead and reserved here since the wait was too long at the other places. The ambiance was nice and the food was very good. I'm a foodie and everything was done great. Would definitely go back and recommend to all."

  • "Steaks were excellent...cooked just as we had ordered. Service not the level I would have expected. Waitress never came by to see how we were on drinks, didn't offer suggestions for appetizers or salads...seemed upset that we weren't ordering cocktails."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Finn & Porter offered a pleasant Valentine menu and a vast wine list. Although the waiting staff was nice, appeared well groomed and professional they seemed like they were spread thin or maybe just inattentive. Most restaurants of this caliber have great chefs and terrific food, but only the best can provide great service."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Maybe because we were there on valentines day with a pre fixe menu, the price seemed out of proportion to the quality of food which was very good."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Finn & Porter was a great spot for a combined February birthday and Valentines Day celebration. Our group of four found plenty of options on the menu - seafood, steak, wine, and dessert, and found each choice to have been well prepared. Our waitress was very pleasant, prompt and attentive to our needs and took great care of us. We enjoyed the ambiance and decor and had no difficulty carrying on our conversation without overhearing or disturbing others. Finn and Porter is a great restaurant and we will return!"

  • "Absolutely the best crab cakes and best filet I have ever had. Pricey but worth every penny. The only disappointment was the creme brûlée. Very boring."
    Dined on 2/3/2014
  • "We went for happy hour and found some great deals. Started off with 1/2 price wine by the glass. Also had 1/2 price sushi. The Hot Hama was a tasty spicy Hamachi and habanero dish and the Tuna & Foie Graa was a rich and beautifully made plate. Love this place and can't recommend it enough. Don't forget to try the grilled broccoli salad! Wonderful!"
    Dined on 1/30/2014
  • "Food was alright but nothing to write home about. We won't be going back and would not recommend it."
    Dined on 1/27/2014

  • "My wife I went to the Finn & Porter in Austin, TX on New Year's Eve. It was a pre-fix menu - the food was pretty good, though not as good as I expected for the price, and the portions were very small. The service was terrible - we didn't get our wine until after the first course arrived and the main course came before the salads. Also, despite having a reservation, we had to wait over 30 minutes to get seated. Overall, not a great dining experience."

  • "We had our Christmas party there, eight people I the private room, very cozy and comfortable. Food was delicious, wine outstanding, staff very friendly and professional."
    Dined on 12/13/2013
  • "Presentation and plating of courses was outstanding. Service was very good with the added assurance that he would ensure the chef was aware of my gluten intolerance. The seabass was not only an accurate portion but also prepared very well with excellent accompaniments. The beet salad was very good also."
    Dined on 1/8/2014
  • "Dinner was delicious and the service was spectacular. Enjoyed a great bottle of wine, and the finn and porter steak and lobster, as well as some after dinner ports. It was quite, which had us nervous in the beginning, but that was a great bonus."
    Dined on 1/2/2014
  • "A group of us learned that F n P was to have a nice Prix Fixe dinner for New Years Eve. We utilized the private room they offer and enjoyed an eclectic delicious dinner. Added treat: a "Threesome" desert, so we did not have to choose!!"
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "We had an 8:00pm reservation for 2 and we showed up at 7:55pm. The hostess told us that our table would be ready in like 10 mins or so and to wait in the bar upstairs. At 8:13pm, we went back downstairs and the hostess told us that she called us like 5 mins ago on my cell phone and since I did not get back to them in 5 mins, she gave our table away!!! I could not have heard my cell phone ring in a noisy bar...they should have sent someone upstairs to tell us our table was ready. It was New Years Eve and they had a four course meal for 85.00/person. Food was good, however, it took forever to get our drinks, they must have been understaffed since our waitress was responsible for working like 8 tables at once. Not a good time overall."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "Title says it all, we went here for NYE dinner there was a set menu which I didn't mind but the food quality and was not worth cost. Very disappointed I should have stuck with Carmelo's or Sullivan steakhouse."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "Here is the letter I sent to Finn and Porter directly Can someone please help me understand what happened in your establish on New Year’s Eve that made, not only mine, but seemingly everyone around myself and my friends experience one of the most stressful and unpleasant dining experiences?"
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "I celebrated my anniversary here, and it worked out just right. The restaurant is quiet and romantic, the food is superb, and the service is commendable (thanks to our server Miguel). We will definitely visit again."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "Went for Half Price Sushi Happy Hour with my two boys, 2 & 5. They loved it and Jack the sushi chef was very accommodating with their requests. They wanted to try different types of sashimi and he made suggestions and cut everything in a kid friendly size. The staff was awesome as well and took very good care of us even though we were seated at the sushi bar. Highly recommend and will definitely be back! Also, I ordered the amazing Brocoli salad and the scallops. Beautiful and delicious plates!"
    Dined on 12/19/2013
  • "The lobster bisque was a little too salty for my taste. The Roll Hot Hama was wonderful, light and the flavors melded very well though the portion was small for the price. The short rib that was melt in your mouth delicious and made the whole dinner the pan seared bass was perfect but after the bisque i did make sure and ask that my main meal was not over salted.The creme brulee was not really creme brulee but more of a pudding but as a pudding it was great with the crumbles on top They also had a goat cheese cheesecake and if you don't like goat cheese don't order it. The homemade carrot cake was very good with the frozen sour cream or cream cheese or whatever they had on top in lieu of icecream it really complemented the sweet cake."
    Dined on 12/9/2013
  • "The regular menu at the restaurant may be wonderful, but the Thanksgiving menu was in my opinion really poor. The stuffing was gummy, the turkey had absolutely no flavor whatsoever except for the "dead chicken" taste, and the green bean casserole was bitter. We were very disappointed. I guess I probably should not have expected "home cooked" flavor from a restaurant but it should have been better than it was."
    Dined on 11/28/2013
  • "The traditional Thanksgiving lunch was mediocre-dry turkey, bland stuffing, but delicious desert. Off the dinner menu items were very good, but needed more selections."

  • "Refreshing to find great sushi at a steak house / American Bistro restaurant. Impeccable service"
    Dined on 11/15/2013
  • "We were on 6th street and couldn't get a table. Open table found this nearby. The service here was excellent, what you would expect of a fine dining establishment. The wine list was quite extensive. The crab cakes were excellent, very flavourful. The lobster bisque was a tad over salty. The New York strip was exceptional, the pork chop was very salty, to the point where I could not eat it without a bite of potatoes or vegetables in the same mouthful. Other than that, it was well prepared (tender and moist). Two other at my table had the New York strip, and said it was exceptional. Overall, our group enjoyed our meal."

  • "Finn and Porter rivals the best sushi in Austin. In fact, I think it is the best. Service was great...love coming back to F&P again and again and again..."
    Dined on 11/2/2013
  • "We had three different fish and all were excellent with very nice sides. The service is very attentive, seeing to the minute details that enhance the dining experience. The place has wonderful decors, high ceilings and well spaced tables. This is definitely a great place to go when you want to be spoiled and have that nice quiet, romantic dinner."
    Dined on 10/25/2013
  • "finn & porter was a great choice for an anniversary dinner. Starting with custom labeled menus and ending with complimentary desert, this is a great place to celebrate any special occasion. Their dinner service would be hard to match anywhere in Austin. I would highly recommend to anyone."
    Dined on 10/18/2013
  • "Waitress very very attentive and pleasant The kitchen did have a timing issue with one of the entrees, five of us were served and one person had to wait 5 minutes for last plate out. They apologized and provided the table with free desert tray"
    Dined on 10/14/2013
  • "We have been going to Finn and Porter for years and this was the best experience yet. Food was amazing and the service was nothing short of perfect, we WILL be back,"
