Great Martinis and great sea
Great Martinis and great sea food. I like to order one of the "special" items. Not cheap but outstanding service and excellent food.

Food was great and the live
Food was great and the live music was a real treat. This is always a great dinning experience because the food and service is always so good. It would be nicer if there was a little more room in the restaurant (tables are in there tight), but with all of the other benefits, that can be accepted.

I felt although the food tasted
I felt although the food tasted good (even though my fish and vegetables were a little over cooked), the dinner was not worth the cost. Also, I asked for double the vegetables instead of the rice or potatoes and the serving was very small.

Fin's has been a neighborhood
Fin's has been a neighborhood gem for many years. Terrific seafood along with very good service make this a dependable special occasion place or just a casual weekend place too. One note: on weekends there is a DJ and the noise level is a little high.

Great food. Wonderful service!
Great food. Wonderful service! Our second Easter Brunch but the price had gone up so much I don't think we would do it again.

We enjoyed a delicious dinner
We enjoyed a delicious dinner from the daily specials. The swordfish entree was outstanding as was the scallops entree. Service was most attentive. Since we were going to a theater performance after dinner, everything was served timely. We look forward to a return visit soon.

We had the sea bass and the swordfish. Both were excellent and the portions were very generous. As a starter we had one of the salads and split it. It was more than enough for 2 people. Service was excellent although we felt a little rushed at the end of the meal. This was our first visit to Fins in a number of years and we will definitely be back! Jerry

My husband and I went to Fin's
My husband and I went to Fin's for a quiet, romantic dinner. The food was amazing, the service was responsive and fast. I don't normally consider myself a picky eater, but I wanted to change the sides that came with my entree choice. The server assured me it was no problem - and she was right. They were very accommodating and gracious. We'll definitely return!

GREAT 1ST TIME EXPERIENCE
This was the first time we went there even though we've been in the neighborhood for 12 years. I'm sorry now that we haven't been there before. We were celebrating Mothers day the evening before with our friends and we sat outside because it was beautiful. Service was outstanding from the very moment we showed up. It was very relaxing on the patio. The soup was amazing! I had the chowder and my wife had the lobster bisque. The Crab cakes were also delicious. We had the ahi tuna seared rare and our friends had the salmon. Both were fantastic Our waitress and her helpers were on the ball. Top notch service! We will return..

Fresh Food and Friendly Service
Very much enjoyed my first outing here. Food was fresh and the salads crisp. Wine selection very adequate. Servers were friendly and attentive. Flow of courses not rushed. Value for price spot on. Will certainly return for another taste.

We found the Copper River Salmon thanks to the great waiter. What a great find if you are a salmon lover. I had the Linguine Supreme and I was more than happy. A lot of food and a great neighborhood restaurant. Will return for sure. Take your friends, it's a great atmosphere.

We ordered the infamous macadamia nut crusted halibut and the special of the day, king salmon. We liked the halibut best. Had a great glass wine. We had a booth in the back which was comfortable, private and we had a romantic dinner. Would highly recommend Fin's for lunch or dinner. They have a great dessert menu too.
6/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
We always LOVE the macadamia nut crusted halibut! A fav of ours! Just love sitting outside on their little patio. Service was outstanding! Looking forward to going back!

We visit often, and always enjoy this restaurant. On Saturday evenings they usually have live music. This time they had a great DJ who played wonderful, current music. His selection of songs was outstanding. He truly made an anticipated great evening into an outstanding evening.

We used a neighborhood "Bogopod"
We used a neighborhood "Bogopod" certificate which enabled us to dine there for about half the cost of a normal meal. We were entitled to an entrée and glass of wine for about $35. for two. The bill would've come to $78. before tax and tip without a salad, side vegetables, dessert, or coffee! Pricey for what it is. Now I know why we haven't gone there in quite some time..

Went to this place for the first time for one of our anniversaries. Crab-stuffed mushrooms and 1-1-1 soup sampler for appetizers. The mushrooms were excellent. Of the soup sampler the clam chowder was the best. For our entrees, we ordered the salmon with arugula pesto orzo, and bacon wrapped scallops with mushroom risotto and asparagus. The stars in these entrees were the salmon, scallops, and mushroom risotto. The risotto was a deviation from the usual sides the scallops come with, which is mashed potatoes. I'm glad I switched, because I'd have that risotto any day. Desserts: creme brulee - not great, and 3 flavored sorbets with fresh fruit - highly recommend.

Solid seafood, yummy desserts,
Great service, solid selection of seafood (although not sure why they serve farm-raised east coast salmon when so much fresh is available?). Lovely selection of wines. Only disappointment was the cheese plate selection - essentially three versions of non-descript cheddar. Makes you wonder how they make their blue cheese dressing, if they don't even have blue cheese?

Always great food, service and ambiance. Moez the owner and his son are always there to greet you and make sure that your experience is top notch. Great local find , have been going for 15+ years
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
The restaurant is consistently good, though not very creative. We always have fish there. They have lots of fresh fish. This is a restaurant that does not overcook the fish - I have never had an overcooked dried out piece of fish there.
The $30 three course prix fixe lobster on Sunday and Monday is a deal. On Monday there is no corkage, and Thursday the wines are half price (except for a few top flight wines).
It can be pleasant dining on the patio outside-though it just looks out on the parking lot.

Never a bad dish
Very dependable: fish entrees, seafood & pasta/risotto. Sumptuous.

Fin's With Living Social
Nice Westlake Village restaurant with indoor or patio dining. Used a Living Social voucher and they handled that very well. Sometimes, waiters at restaurants are not trained on how the deal works or how to administer them. No problem here. Very friendly and attentive service. For the most part, the food was excellent, but the fries with the fish and chips seemed to be cooked long before the other food, so not very good.

Wonderful Fish In Westlake Village
As it was Monday evening the restaurant at this time was not too crowded.
Our server was very helpful explaining specials and going over the wine list with us. My cousins who were visiting from Chicago and staying in Westlake had the Ahi Tuna special and I had the Salmon special being served that evening. They also began with soup and salad. Their Ahi was cooked to perfection (they preferred it a little well-done). We ended our meal with the s'mores dessert and the banana's wrapped in eggrolls. I can say we were all very pleased with the restaurant and the dishes prepared. I hadn't been to your restaurant in several years, but remember it being very good. Fins did not disappoint. I highly recommend it when dining in that part of the city.

Wonderful neighborhood restaurant
We had a wonderful dinner at Fin's. We sat outside and the service was great. Our service was very knowledgable about gluten-free options. We ate delicious lobster and mushroom risotto.
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
NICE NEIGHBORHOOD RESTAURANT
The food is excellent we both had the Macademia Crusted Halibut it was superbly cooked. The prices are a little high but that's Westlake. Would go again but only for special occasions.

Great neighborhood place
I've always loved Fins Seafood Grill and it was so easy to make a reservation via OpenTable for my birthday dinner. I prefer to avoid "chain" restaurants - Fins has a great old neighborly feeling. The staff were attentive and knowledgeable (as always). New Zealand salmon was perfect, as was my husband's shrimp linguine. They brought out a creme brulee with a candle for my birthday, which my husband devoured (unfortunately, I don't like creme brulee).
This place is perfect for people like us (older foodies), but perhaps not for younger people looking for a high energy (read: loud) trendy-experience.

Very nice and then some
Reservations were easy to get using Open Table. The food was excellent and the service was better. My wife had ordered a glass of wine which was "bad" and the wait staff immediately replaced it without hesitation or question. The gentleman tasted it when he returned it to the br and told the bartender to pour out the remainder of the bottle. I have had other experiences where the staff wants to argue if the wine is as bad as we thought it was. Not the case here.

Fins is a great neighborhood restaurant. The reservations are honored. Everyone who works there is always friendly. The food is consistently good. I wasn't impressed with the calamari appetizer. It lacked crunch. The halibut was very good. The ahi tuna dish was delicious as was the lobster risotto. The salads are pricey so we skipped them. The death by chocolate dessert is enough for 4 to share. The place can be quite noisy. Ask to be seated in the back room if you want to have a conversation.

Excellent Sword Fish
The swordfish tower was fantastic. Moist, firm and beautifully presented. The environment was relaxing and perfect for enjoying a great meal with a special person.

Good food, broad wine list
I had the thai chicken. Collegues had the salmon and mixed seafood entrees. Service was speedy and pleasant. the food was very good. The wine list was much better than average for a restaurant of Fins' size.
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
never a disappointment!
We had an incredible dinner--sea bass with sweet potato risotto and the oven roasted seafood with pasta. Also, indulged in their banana split for dessert. We come here for special occasions and always very satisfied. My one recommendation is the mirrors. Would love to see them replaced with updated abstract painting for example. Would have liked a table not so central or a booth. Next time I will make a point of reserving a booth. The owner is always there, pleasant, friendly--just the right touch. Service was excellent too.

Went there with a living social coupon. The friendly waitress recommended the tuna for dinner. It was outstanding! The house chardonnay was very tasty as well. Have been there before will definitely go again.
