This was our third meal at Fin. First was a tremendous dinner. We are challenged in our neck of the woods a good bit north of this place, to find good food in a good atmosphere. Fin provides not only both of these, but delicious and creatively prepared dishes along with a fine wine list and a full bar. This last meal was our second lunch. Quiet. Comfortable. Quality foods prepared in a most wonderful manner along with really high quality service staff! We could not have asked for more and we were continually pleased and satisfied with everything about this spot! Our server was the same woman each time, and we sat at the same booth (front window along side the window on the side street - great views, sunshine, & privacy!). I had requested this booth each time and was given it both sittings! The server (and I must admit I did not ask her name) was gracious, informative, polite, non-assuming, with complete knowledge of the menu, how things were prepared, their origins (and yes, we asked lots of questions) as well as helpful in suggesting various parings with wine and drink suggestions. FANTASTIC. I surely hope all the regulars that are patrons here appreciate what they have and continue to support this wonderful place, and keep their mouths shut as to recommending it to others!!!!!!

Awesome experience. Celebrated our 21st wedding anniversary in style. Staff decorated our table with rose pedals and provided Champaign. Most importantly, the food was simply Devine. We drove up from Virginia Beach (one hour drive) - worth every mile. Our server (wish I could remember her name) was the best. Thank you Fin!

I have gone to Fins numerous times and it was always excellent: food and atmosphere.
On December 19, I was there for my anniversary. The food was okay at best. The music was like club music. I will not be going back and I would not recommend. Definitely for fine dining, I will be going to the Fat Canary in Williamsburg. Too bad, because it was a good place.

I love this restaurant! It’s small and comfortable with a cool neighborhood vibe. The food was top notch and the service friendly and attentive. We split the tuna appetizer three ways and I had the “scallibut” ( halibut with scallop on top) entree and it was cooked to perfection. Nice portion that melted in my mouth. I highly recommend to anyone for a wonderful dinner experience. The food is a little pricey but worth every penny. I hear they have a Tuesday tapas special in the separate bar that would be worth trying!

We went for Tapas Tuesday and had a wonderful dinner. For $20 ($25 with wine pairings) we got three small courses. With desert it was just the right amount of food. The wines were very well paired with the food. It was so good that we immediately made reservations for the next Tuesday and invited our friends.

We were visiting from Chicago. We enjoyed getting out of the house and not eating thanksgiving leftovers. Our waitress Meghan was awesome! She made great recommendations and conversation. She also picked the perfect wines for our meals. The she crab soup was so so good. I wish I could get it here at home. My boyfriend got the Cobia special and he loved it. I got whatever steak Meghan told me to get and LOVED it. We really enjoyed everything.

We were ready for a nice dinner out and gave Fin a try. The service was very good, but the food was very very poor. The cheese plate and meat plate appetizers were unimaginative and bland, and the meats (a variety of sausages) were cold and tasteless. For dinner we ordered the scallops. Honestly, it was so salty we could not eat it, and we are not picky eaters. You would expect more from an upscale restaurant where the dinner selections are in the $30 range. We will not be going to Fin again.

What an amazing meal! All 4 of us cleaned our plates clear! Started off with the Fois Gras and one of us got the She crab soup. I had the 35 month dry aged Bistro steak, cooked to perfection, beautiful presentation. Also chosen was the Scallibut (Scallops and Halibut), all dishes beautifully prepared and presented. Portions were ample but not huge. Other dishes were the Duck breast and Duck Confit, and just the plain scallop dinner. All amazing. The black garlic mashed potatoes are delicious as were the assorted vegetables placed on the plates. $40 bottle of a 2015 Angeline Cabernet was a nice accompaniment . Total bill before tip, $251.00 No one complained! Would go back. Wish I took pictures.

We both tried the five-course tasting menu, mine with the reserve wine pairings and my wife had a hand-crafted white Cosmo. Every dish was beautifully plated and delicious. It is just the right amount of food. The wines were truly well matched to the food. Our server was superb. Even on a Monday night there were many other customers, but it wasn't full. The menu changes often and uses both local and flown-in ingredients.

My wife and I attended dinner at Finn's to celebrate our 38th wedding anniversary. They prepared a table with rose petals and gave us a complimentary glass of champagne (for toasting). We made our reservation for early in the day, so the restaurant was not full which made it quiet. Parking could have been a problem but we were lucky to find a spot open in front of the restaurant. The staff was wonderful. The food was delicious. We had a marvelous time, and intend to return in February to celebrate our birthdays.
