We went this week for my wifes birthday, using the Magical Dining Month menu. We both had the lobster tail, and it was impressive! A huge tail, very good tasting, with garlic mashed and green beans. Overall, a nice plate, and the desserts were large and good. A little noisy due to the high ceilings, but the food makes up for it.

Attended with business colleagues for dinner during the Magical Dining Month and selected dinner from that menu. The oysters were fresh and wonderful. The Filet Mignon was succulent accompanied by garlic mashed potatoes and asparagus. Fabulous! Dessert was the Apple bread pudding with vanilla ice cream and was luscious. I would eat here again for a special occasion.

This place is a must during magical dining. I have never had an even slightly disappointing meal here. The lobster tail my friend had was huge. I always get the shrimp Orleans and it has never disappointed me.

We've gone to Big Fin in the past and have had, in general, a good experience. However, for the past two years, we've gone during Magical Dining month and have found that the service and food was not to our expected level. This past visit was the worst! The service was very poor and by the time that our dessert finally arrived, it was cold, instead of warm. Additionally, the server, as well as the manager were not welcoming and didn't seem to appreciate our business. Overall, it was not a good dining experience.

We went for Magical Dining. We had raw oysters that were soo good we ordered more. Lobster tail entree was perfection. My friends both ordered the Seafood Trio off the menu and felt that the description was misleading. They had scallops, shrimp and catfish all breaded and fried, which was a bit of a let down. Our desserts were fantastic tho! Especially the key lime pie! Service could have been better. They forgot our silverware and after waiting for the waiter to notice we had to ask so that we could eat. Overall a good experience. Maybe I’ll give them another try.

Our evening with friends (8 people) was pretty much ruined because of the level of noise in the side dining room. What’s the purpose of going out if you can’t hear each other. Extremely disappointing, so it really doesn’t matter how good the food or service was.

A great meal! Try the Shrimp Orleans if you like a little kick. The lobster and filet were exactly what to expect at a high end restaurant. It is noisy in the interior dining room, but go with the flow. Mo was a great waiter. Knowledgeable, prompt, sense of humor. I highly recommend!

We went for the magical dining and the food was amazing. I will definitely go back. Our server's were very good. The only thing I can complain about was it was too hot in that back room and too noisy. It was hard to hear each othe. But other than that it was amazing.

The magical dining experience was great with a varied menu to select from. However,the noise level in our dining section was high and our conversations were strained to hear each other talking. If we return to Big Fin, I would request the main dining room with high ceilings to diffuse the noise level.

Great time, delicious food but it was obvious our servers don't like Magical Dinning, wasn't even done with our entrees and asked what we wanted for our desert. I would have had a 3rd glass of wine but was never asked, just served the check.

Went on our annual Magical Dining month guys get together and this year we picked Big Fin and it did not disappoint! Great selections, great flavors, great service! Portions were good size! Great for seafood lovers! Not a great place to have quiet conversations if you’re not in the private dining areas however very relaxed atmosphere overall!

I had lobster which was good. The mashed potatoes & green beans were cold. The waiter was kind of non chalant. We had to ask for bread, ketchup, etc. the service was nothing special& neither was the food. It was just run of the mill ok.

Disappointing as when I went for Magical Dining last year everything was excellent & that is what I was looking for this time,

Having remembered a great Magical Dining experience in previous years, we were excited to return to Big Fin. Unfortunately, this experience was not as great. Service was painfully slow, often taking 30-40 minutes between courses. The ceasar salad was incredibly salty, leaving it inedible. The filet mignon with added shrimp was as delicious as I remember (especially when paired with the secret Big Fin sauce), the only redeeming quality of the meal. The bread pudding was served room temperature and had the consistency of a loaf cake rather than a bread pudding. The salted caramel sauce described on the menu was missing, although it would have helped the terribly dry cake if it had been present. Overall the meal would have been acceptable if it hadn't been for the painfully slow service coupled with a server who may as well have been a robot, having zero personality. Looking out at other tables during the meal I could tell that ours may have been an anomaly as many of the servers seemed to be engaging in great conversation with their tables. I can only hope that the next experience is better than this one.

My friends and I went to Big Fin for a Magical Dining evening. After reading some unpleasant reviews I was hesitant about dining there, however, everything was wonderful. Lobster absolutely delicious. Service was great and gratefully we were in a room that was relatively quiet, however, the main dining room was so loud you could not hear yourself think much less carry on a conversation. Yes the haricot verts could be blanched a little more. Will be back. Manager had us sign up for dining specials. Looking forward to this aspect of this restaurant.
