Fin Izakaya was recommended to me by a friend. This occasion was our second visit; first time was as a couple, second time was with another couple. I love the atmosphere at this place, loud, energetic and fun! The food is good and interesting with lots of variety. The portions are small and I found the prices to be on the high side for the amount and quality. That being said, the cooked entrees were delicious, particularly the hot pots and the seared angus steak. In my opinion, the sashimi there was mediocre quality and small portions. The octopus balls are also delicious, but again, small portion. We also ordered the deep fried shrimp and I was disappointed to find out, after having put one in my mouth, that the tails were still on and invisible since being covered in batter. The service the second time around did not compare to the first, which was very attentive. Additionally, we travelled from Bloor West village to this location first time by car which was a disaster since Eglinton is full of construction and is an absolute mess. The second visit we took TTC and it was much more accessible without the hassle. All in all, Fin Izakaya has pros and cons, try it once for sure. After 2 visits, we won't be returning however.
