This was the highlight of our visit to Orlando. James and Josh made us feel like family the second we walked in the door. The food was excellent or better!....Bar and Drinks...very full pours....
We were a bit late in getting there due to traffic but they accommodated us and treated us likekings and queens. This is a special restaurant....with special people who understand people...and excel in hospitality at it's best. This is NOT one of those Orlando tourist places....this is a high end, wonderful restaurant to dine in...
We get to O Town several times a year and will GUARANTEE that Big Fin is the fist stop to have dinner at...maybe even the next night too. James and Josh Cograts on creating the ultimate in a dining experience for both of us. Hugs to you both.

Let me start by saying that the food and service was excellent. The downside was the room immediately behind the reception was very loud and we had to raise our voices in order to be heard. One of my guests left the table twice to “Rest his ears.” The main room has high ceilings and I don’t remember it being so loud in past visits so I would request in the future.

Food and dinner service was good. Oddly, the minute after we paid the bill they removed every single remaining item including water glasses and napkins, etc, from the table while we were finishing a business dinner conversation...leaving us with an entirely empty table and not being subtle about wanting us to immediately leave. Disappointing end to an otherwise good dinner experience.

The ambiance was wonderful, however we were sitting in one of the dining rooms where halogen (or similar) spot lights were directed at the tables, allowing enough light to see the menus and the food and not lighting up the entire room. The server, Gabe was very friendly, with excellent knowledge of the menu and specials. The courses were served only after the previous course was removed from the table, which is something I appreciate. The food compares to any 4-star restaurant. If you make a reservation, ask for the dining room behind the front desk, especially if you want a low noise level. Although I live nearly an hour away, I find it worth the trip.

This is my third time at Big Fin and I will probably look elsewhere when I’m next in town. The previous visits had been good but tonight was sadly a let down from the bar maid seemingly having a bad night and not being at all hospitable to an odd mix of our server being both a Barman and waiter the service was a bit hit and miss. they didn’t have all the wines on the list available and one of our entrees was cold. They did take it off the check but overall was disappointed with our visit

The food and service was outstanding. I believe our Server was Brian. We had 11 people and he did a terrific job. The only negative was it is rather loud in the main dining room so difficult to carry on a conversation with a group of people. They customized a couple seafood platters for our group and all the food was really amazing.

We love Big Fin! We make it a part of every Orlando vacation we take. Ryan was our server and was super attentive, the chef came out to pay his regards, too. I can't think of a place I look forward to visiting when on vacation more than Big Fin.
The food is great, it's not a cheap meal, but it's worth it!

Our waiter, Tim, was very attentive but the “flow” of our dinner was inconsistent. We were surprised and disappointed that we could not get an order of mussels without getting noodles with it!! This is a seafood restaurant, not an Italian one.

One of my favorite seafood restaurants to visit in the U.S. The seafood was fantastic as usual - we started with the seafood tower with oysters, crab claws, and Alaska king crab legs - fresh and flavorful.
Main course was a chef's special - tilefish and amazing.
Finished with the signature key lime pie.
Service was great, ambiance was good - a bit cold in the area we were in due to the air con, but nevertheless a great evening overall. When I am in Orlando, always my "go to" restaurant.

Dining with a group of colleagues form work. They had no problem accommodating our group of 11. The server was good but messed up a couple orders but he corrected them quickly. The food was delicious and nice size portions. The drinks were good but the wine was better!

We visit Orlando a couple times a year and always make sure to eat dinner here once during our trip. The seafood is really fresh and outstanding.

Our 12 year old always tries something new and this year it was a couple raw oysters. He enjoyed them.

We also did the king crab as an appetizer and all our kids enjoyed (served warm) as they were already cracked for them.

We will be back at our next visit to Disney.

We have been to BigFin several times and the service and food has been great. This not as great the food I had was disappointing my wife’s was great. The service was a little lacking this go around hoping it was an off night for the waiter. The wife and I still love BigFin and will be back. Don’t order the fish n chips.

The seafood restaurant of my dreams. Checks all the right boxes for me: wide array of fish and shellfish, both crustaceans and molluscs (they had about a dozen kinds of oysters one time i visited), in a wide variety of dishes in many distinct styles and preparations. Great bar and friendly, knowledgeable wait staff.

Our server George helped us to have a great experience! His attention was outstanding, he was always there when we needed him and at the same time he let me and my mom have a a conversation without being interrupted! He gave us an explanation for everything that we didn’t understand on the menu! He offered us the best wine that complemented our dishes! A perfect service that I haven’t experienced in a very long time! Along with that the food was outstanding! Although the whole fried snapper lacked a little bit of flavor, even though it was cooked perfectly ( crispy outside but soft inside) . The whole experience was great and I will definitely recommend this restaurant to everyone!
Cheers
Thank you
