It was too cold to eat outside
It was too cold to eat outside so my friend and I sat at a high top in the bar. Not our first choice since I had made reservations in advance, but it was OK. The Friday lunch special, crab cake sliders, was delicious and I was happy to be able to swap out the fries for a different side -- steamed broccoli in this case. My friend enjoyed a bowl of the French Onion soup. Lunch prices are reasonable here relative to other places at the Town Center. And the food is always very good.

Save room for dessert
This was our first time at BlackFinn but we had heard good things. We sat at the bar for a drink before dinner and chatted with the bar tender - who we knew from another restuarant. The service was on par. We order the hummas fir an appetizer and really enjoyed it. The fish tacos are made with halibut, which is my favorite fish, so we had those for dinner (my husband and I always share a meal). They were okay, but I was disappointed because the fish was battered and fried, not grilled. For dessert we had "hot chocolate" which rates in the top 2 or 3 of my "I could eat another one of those all by myself" treats. It is a warm chocolate cake, with peanut butter served in an extra large coffee mug with vanilla ice cream on top. Worth it!

Food was good, some dishes better than others. It's in a mall so it's not a destination restaurant. I would eat there again but probably not make a special trip.

Impressive Dinner for Family
Enjoyable atmosphere, excellent and courteous service and very delicious food; seafood steak and chicken dishes. Not an everyday dining experience for me but perfect for treating family members in from out of town to a delightful evening. Highly recommended.

We are regulars to BlackFinn and it's always a pleasure dining here. The service is great. The food is always delicious. It can be a bit loud when it's busy, but it doesn't bother us.

This is my second time dining
This is my second time dining at BlackFinn. I decided to try the restaurant again in order to be fair in my assessment. The service was excellent; the ambiance was wonderful. However, I have the same complaint that I originally had when I ate there. The menu item I choose was delicious. As was my first experience, though, the food was warm, not hot. I don't know why the kitchen chooses to send out food that is barely warm. The first time I visited, I had a steak. The second time was the bacon-wrapped meatloaf. Both dishes were good, but would have been great had they been served at a hotter temperature. Also, this is the first restaurant I have been to that doesn't offer bread service.

Lunch specials for $7.99 (3
Lunch specials for $7.99 (3 of us did the "pick 2") are a good deal but if you are there for lunch and order off the regular menu, prices are a bit high. For example, my husband enjoyed his 1/2 lb. burger but $11.99 not including iced tea, tax and tip is steep for a lunch hamburger and fries.

PAYING ATTENTION TO SPECIAL REQUEST
Food great for lunch. Portion size a little small. Service could be a little faster for lunch, if I were there for dinner, the wait would have been okay but we were on our lunch hour, granted we did wait to order because it was our first time. Great menu selection prices terrific for lunch, am planning on going this week with another friend. I did specifically request a table, they ignored that request and sat us in a booth, which was not good since I have a disability and getting in and out of booths is difficult for me. Great selection for lunch. Salad was so fresh it was like they just picked the Romaine! The shrimp flatbread was so good, I wanted more! Compliments to the chef!!!! Recommend!!!

We've dined there twice now
We've dined there twice now and walked away with very happy tummies like we did the first time. There is a wide variety of food choices with wide price range. We love the online reservation feature which is greatly appreciated. We like to be seated right away and not have to stand around waiting. Would definitely go back again.

Back for Brunch!
My husband and I had Easter Brunch on this visit. We shared the fruit platter and what was basically a scrambled egg filled burrito (I forget the name). There was a nice variety of sliced fruit and "strawberry yogurt" was actuall greek yogurt, with fresh berries diced in it - yum! The burrito was filled with eggs, cheese and black beans. It was quite tastey. Ofcourse, we also enjoyed the bottomless Bloody Mary's and Mimosa's. I will be making a reservation for this coming Sunday moments from now.

Matt was really nice. When my fiance ordered a drink she had an issue with, he got her a replacement drink without hesitation. The food was really good and at the right temperature.

BlackFinn is the best!
We love going to BlackFinn, the food and service are fantastic. We had the steak, which was very good. The service was outstanding as always. I would recommend BlackFinn to everyone that is looking for an upscale restaurant.

We were pleasantly surprised when we were able to get reservations on a short notice. The wait staff was attentive and helpful. swordfish dish and new haddock dish were excellent.

Bar scene but was able to put us in quiet dining room to talk. Thanks!

We love Blackfinn. We ask our four year old if he wants to go to "His favorite restaurant" for dinner, and he runs to the door ready to go. Great Service! Greg, Melissa, and the whole crew do an awesome job!

I had only been to Blackfinn a few times for dinner. I was hesitant on coming for lunch because I wasn't sure I would find anything I would like. I do not eat any kind of seafood! I looked over the menu a few times and decided on a featured item. It was a roasted chicken wrap, and it was delicious! I even at the other half the next day and it was just as good!
6/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Lunch specials are a good
Lunch specials are a good deal, particularly the "pick two." We both had the Greek salad with half a flatbread and were pleased with our choice. Service was efficient and friendly.

First time at BlackFinn, although friends and relatives have been there multiple times. I enjoyed it: interesting cocktail/beer/wine selection; eclectic menu with some well-executed dishes. At least the night I went there several large parties going on, but the noise level was not that outrageous and the staff seemed to handle the groups well.

I brought my mom here for dinner for her birthday, she enjoyed her meal, stating she wanted to return.
6/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food was very good. We had the Filet with Pepper Sauce which was very tender and the sauce was amazing!! My companion had the shrimp and scallops which were cooked just right, The service was also very good
6/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was my 3rd time there, 1st time for our out of town guests. As before, everything was superb. We ate outside and the atmosphere was great! We will continue to go there for a drinks as well as dinner.

First time diner and will definitely return. Good food, good service, fair prices.

Best service ever...
I live on the water, so the only reason to go out to dinner is the service and food I may not be able to cook... the service was the best ever and I've been going out for a long time... the food was delish!

"I love this place - like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The French Onion soup was amazing. We have tried many of the items on the menu and have loved each one.

I had family come from out of town to visit for dinner, we choose Blackfin for it's convenient location. Everything was great.....service, food, & ambiance.
Our server was busy but very attentive to our table.

Birthday on the Patio
I loved the energetic environment out on the patio. We celebrated a birthday and the staff was very accommodating with handling our seating, tables, and staying attentive to our needs. The strawberry and goat cheese salad and Margherita flat bread were delicious.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
We arrived a little early, but our table was ready with no wait. Our waitress did not know what draft beers were available from a local brewery which was a surprise. We both chose to have Ribeye steaks. Mine was flavored well and cooked just right, but my wife had a steak with very little flavor to it. Overall, I was not impressed with the food for the price we paid. It is possible that we will return, but probably not anytime soon.

My wife and I went out this past weekend and had a great time. The service was great and the food was good too. I would definitely recommend Black Finn
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have always totally enjoyed my dining experiences at BlackFinn.
The food is great, the drinks are great, and the servers know how to take care of their customers.
One of the best things was being able to make a reservation online. That is very convenient!

This was my first time eating
This was my first time eating here as Im not from this area. My husband and I found the restaurant by looking at different places for dinner. We were there for our anniversary and had a really good time. I would definitely recommend this place to others!!
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good lunch spot
Like the Greek Salad - it was very good. Soup was ok. Definitely worth eating there again.

An In Place
We enjoyed Blackfinn. It was a fun and energetic Saturday night dining experience. It has a level of sophistication that we like.
The menu choices were good and the food was satisfactory but not great. It was warm and not hot. The drinks were good. No bread was served which would have been a nice addition. The server was good but very young and not as attentive to detail as she will be with a little more time. We'll go back.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was a new restaurant I selected to celebrate my birthday w/family (5 of us). My 12 yr old found it very accommodating to his meticulous taste buds. I had the Chilean Sea Bass & found it excellent. Service was awesome. Portions were sufficient & I even rec'd a complimentary dessert for all to share (& there was enough to share). We all left very full & satisfied. We will definitely be back in the near future.

BlackFinn is Fantabulous
What a great evening for a much needed date night. We shared the Lasagna and it was split by the kitchen staff without asking. Everything was so wonderful. The portions were large (we also had Brussel Sprouts and Bacon) and well prepared even at 10:30pm. Our waiter Richard was phenomenal and the Big Island Tea made our romantic evening extra special. I will definitely return and write a Trip Advisor review.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Although this was not our first time at Blackfin, it had been a while since our last visit and we had forgotten how great the food was. We ordered drinks from the bar, we had zing zang shrimp, (that were delicious, but maybe slightly overpriced), and for our entrees I had the Hong Kong bass and my wife had the queen city chicken. Both were delicious, and my wife mentioned several times it was the best chicken she'd ever had. The only complaint was that we received our salads at the same time as our entrees. otherwise, it was a perfect evening. the service was quick, and our server( Lauren I think) was attentive and knowledgeable. Blackfin is now at the top of our list of favorite restaurants! Thanks for helping make our anniversary great!

This was my first time here and I can't wait to go back!!!

Five star service
I enjoyed eating at black Finn we were greeted at the door and seated with no wait time . The hostess also remember my partner birthday was so sincere to me. We really enjoyed the food and the taste of it. It was all seasoned to perfection in my opinion. The servers were excellent and on point. The atmosphere was nice and relaxing . I will be going back and most all to me the prices were reasonable and the portions of food were more than enough. Thanks black finn

As expected, dining experience
As expected, dining experience was awesome. With reservations my party experienced minimal wait time and once seated our hostess was very attentive to the needs of everyone in the party. Drinks were in hand just a short while after being seated and salad and entrees followed in a timely manner.

Lunch was very tasty and the menu offer diverse options. And the chef perfected my special request.
