The service was fantastic.
The service was fantastic. Our server was very patient with us while we made our drink and food selections. It was very quiet in the restaurant, but we were there early in the evening. The food was prepared quickly and brought to the table within an appropriate amount of time. The dishes were aesthetically pleasing to the eye as well as the palate.

Good food on the river
The porch is the place to be! The food is very good and service is slow but engaging. Everyone is very nice.

Gorgeous view - Food not so much
The Finn & Porter has a beautiful setting with gorgeous views. Our table was next to a window with a panoramic view of river and sunset. The restaurant is plush and the waiter was attentive. We enjoyed a basil gimlet martini which was quite good.
The food, however, was lacking. The razor clams were incredibly tough, but came with a wonderful sauce and multi-colored pepper vinagrette (my overall fav).
The calimari was rediculous. It came in a large bowl, so appeared to be ok upon arrival. However, there was little calimari cut into what I would describe as rubber bands and the rest of the bowl was filled with what seemed to be breading from the bottom of the pan.
I would recommend F&P for ambiance, but not the food.

Finn & Porter Missoula
We met family who were visiting Missoula. Manager was both genial and helpful in arranging a table for six with a great view of the river. Our waiter was both polite and patient in taking our orders and bringing food and drinks for 4 adults and two teenagers who were more involved in their conversations than looking at their menus and ordering. Happy hour food of pizzas and oysters was excellent and a good bargain. The waiter even took a photograph for our group.

I had a wonderful dining experience the evening of August 16th. The food was excellent, so was the service. I was a little disappointed that the main entree did not include a salad. The creme' brulee dessert was outstanding. The staff goes above and beyond in the service area.

Clark Fork River Dining
We booked a reservation for a special dinner with our son on our last night in Missoula and I am typically leery about eating in hotel restaurants but Finn and Porter exceeded our expectations. We chose it for its location on the river and we asked for a river view by the window as we were unsure about the weather that evening so we chose to dine inside. Table with amazing views and quiet! Calamari was excellent. Alder wood plank salmon Delicious. Son reported MY Strip was perfectly cooked ate four rare and husband had the tuna and reported it was excellent! Don't miss the may tag blue cheese mashed potatoes! We were too full to order dessert but they sounded good! Beer and wine selection was good I would return!

I appreciate you!
Thank you so much for the enjoyable meal and service at Finn & Porter. We came to celebrate my daughter's 33rd. birthday with a group of her friends and really appreciated the beautiful surroundings on the Clark Fork, the attentive waitress and the delicious food. We will definitely be back.
