quality ingredients. Healthy Tasty
Well it's certainly not San Francisco or Italy or Soho London but for Downtown Austin with it's mainly carnival food it seemed like the best choice.

Food and service was great.
Food and service was great. I wouldn't recommend it for a romantic dinner...its pretty loud even in the smaller room in the back. My one complaint is that I had left a "special request" when I made the open table reservation that we were celebrating a birthday. They obviously did not read it because when we received our desserts they did not acknowledge it at all. I noticed the table next to us they had written on the dessert plate. I was not expecting anything for free, just the acknowledgement for my husband's birthday. They obviously dont read the special requests so dont waste your time putting anything there.

Nice Ambiance, Stellar Food
Finn & Porter completely exceeded our expectations. We went during Austin Restaurant Week. They were well prepared for our arrival. The filet could not have been better. Their wine list was perfect for our evening with our parents. The bruchetta roll was truly inventive and divine. It was a most comprehensive menu with lots of variety. The restaurant should definitely be packed nightly. We will return again, most definitely.

Great for special Occasions
This is a very nice restaurant but quite expensive. We got a lower priced bottle of wine and a couple of appetizers and our bill for dinner three of us was just under $300 with tip. Food was very good. Steak cooked perfectly. Scallop and pork belly appetizers were great. One of us got sushi and was surprised by the small serving size. I agree with a review I read suggesting that Finn and Porter isn't sure what type of restaurant it is. We got two separate menus. One just for sushi. A little odd but, perhaps it doesn't matter since the food was good. Overall a very nice meal. A bonus: since our parking at the Hilton was covered with validation, we left our car there while we went out on 6th street - convenient.

Great date with the wife choice
Really enjoyable restaurant for very good food and great service. There is a funky city sewage odor outside the building that isn't their fault. Very unfortunate for them as it isn't in their control. Fortunately you can't smell any of it inside the restaurant.Our waitstaff was very attentive and professional and the ambiance inside was perfect for us. We sat in a booth in the bar area and they had a great little live jazz ensemble playing. The energy was perfect for a date with my wife.The food was just about perfect. Everything was pretty mainstream and classic (a good thing) but with just enough of a twist to make it unique, highly satisfying, and memorable. We will be back FOR SURE.

My clients thoroughly enjoyed a recent business dinner. The food was great and we were able to try many of the appetizers with their happy hour 1/2 off special. The bar above was a little noisy but that was to be expected with a convention next door.

The food at Finn and Porter was awesome. The portion size seamed small, but I left surprisingly full. For those who like fish, I would suggest the Halibut. The atmosphere was very nice, and we were seated in a nice area. We were immediately seated as the restaurant was clearing out (we chose to eat late to accomodate other activities). The prices were on par with this type of restaurant, and we were pleased overall.

I made a reservation for a bachelorette party. They sat us in a private room (without me asking for it) and all wine bottles were 1/2 off. The food was great and the service was excellent!

We were amazed with the decor and service. We were first served bread (made from scratch). Then we had our entrees - a chicken dish and the Wagyu NY Strip. They were both cooked very well.I like the fact that the sides are includes with the pricing. They even had a PB&J dish for kids for $5.
The we had the French Toast Brioche for dessert with Nutella, hazelnut and vanilla ice cream. It was amazing.
Only two things I was wondering about. #1, Was the steak really Wagyu-Kobe? It was not as marbleized as I have been used to with others. Then the other thing was that my steak was not warm enough even after they reheated it.
Nevertheless, I would still highly recommend this place. Thank you for making our 5th anniversary a special one.

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,

Good food, but needed more
All our food was excellent, but we just needed more. The portions were extremely small for the price. I ordered the bouillabaisse, which sounded scrumptious, but when it arrived, only had 1 shrimp, 1 scallop, 3 mussels, and one small piece of redfish. I'm used to bouillabaisse arriving in a big kettle with a ton of fish. Not so much here.

Marvelous - Sushi to Steak
Superb sushi and succulent steak. We've eaten here several times and are always pleased with the food as well as the service.

Waitress very very attentive
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

Bravo finn & porter
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.

Great seafood and more
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.

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...

A nice meal
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.
