Wonderful food. Sabrina provided impeccable service. She was knowledgeable of the wine and was able to recommend a wine to our taste. The scallops were fabulous!

The place is terrific, not only are the seafood dishes great but there Steaks, especially the tenderloin, are better than any of the local or nearby steak houses.

The dinner was well prepared and delivered. We sat outside. We had a couple of flies around the table for the evening. I realize flies are hard to fight but it did effect the evening.

We have never had a disappointing meal at Fin Seafood. This restaurant is what a business associate of mine would call "reliable" for anniversaries, friends and business associates.

This week's Tapas Tuesday was a prix fixe offering where three plates are paired with individual wines.

The first was a "Tomato BLT" that featured Bacon Tomato Jam and a Yellow Tomato Sorbet over house-made Black Garlic Focaccia Bread.

The second was a Seafood Paella over Jasmine Rice with Tomato Lobster Broth.

The third was Braised Brisket with a Sweet Potato Puree.

Each was perfectly seasoned and presented.

Desserts are optional, and we took the meal outside on the patio.

Reservations recommended.

We had the gazpacho with cucumber and lobster salad, oysters and pork bellies, and the smokey salmon. The food was perfect and when we told them we we’re celebrating our engagement they made it extra special. Absolutely wonderful!

The food, service, and staff were all superb. My family and I were here visiting from Brooklyn, NY. We went here to have a birthday celebration dinner for our niece. Everything exceeded our expectations and satisfaction. We are looking forward to dining at this restaurant each time we are in town.

Nice outdoor tables looking across to the square (trees and open field) -- this is a great place to be when being indoors doesn't feel like a good idea. Excellent food and service, at an appropriate price point. Our favorite restaurant.

Everything was great except for the lobster roll. The lobster was extremely chewy/over-cooked and tasteless. Couldn’t even finish it.

Overall the food here ranges from "pretty good" to "wowza!" Every dish has unique creative elements, including some unusual ingredients or mixing of flavors (such as sriracha ice cream on tuna poke - amazing!). Prices are a bit high, but this is a high class establishment and cost is on par with similar restaurants. Service was a bit slow, but I was at a business lunch and perhaps the staff wanted to give me some "space"; I think if I asked for quicker service the staff would have been happy to oblige. Not all items are necessarily great tasting, but nothing disappoints, either. The creativity can get a little "edgy" if you will, but to me that just makes the experience more interesting. The food almost always gets an "A for effort."
