Everything was amazing, from the Wagyu Beef NY Strip which melted in my mouth to the seafood Thanksgiving special with oyster infused stuffing. We also enjoyed the Grilled Romaine Caesar Salad and the salad with cured salmon. If you have room for dessert, I recommend the sweet potato cheesecake or the ginger sorbet. If you pair them together, they taste like gingerbread.

From the food quality and presentation to the excellent service this place is a Newport News gem. It's sometimes difficult to find that overall high end feel in this area - you will definitely find it here.

The Firecracker Shrimp or Tuna Tartar are great starters. You can't miss with Scallops or Crab Cakes. Excellent fine dining place in Newport News, Virginia.

If you get a chance to eat here I highly recommend Tapas Tuesday’s or special events like the one I attended. We got to try three different old fashioneds and they were so good. We also had three different complimentary sliders and I loved them all. Please save room for dessert or eat dessert first cause you can’t go wrong with the creme brûlée or cheesecake. Seriously this will be some of the best food and drinks you’ve had in the 757.

Took too long for the water to take a drink order and we were the only guests in the restaurant. Wine pours were shallow even with clear level marks on the glass. The waiter asked my husband if he had met the pour line. Appetizers were sooooo salty. We had oysters and the firecracker shrimp. Waiter took bread plates away with the empty appetizer plates as well as my knife and never replaced either. Bread that was then brought to the table with olive oil was RAW. Raw, cold bread dough.

Main dishes were not really hot and flavors were, ok. Nothing spectacular and the atmosphere is tired and in much need of a refresh/update. There were holes torn in the booth seats were we were seated.

I went with a party of four. I was told that in order to have a 7-course meal, everyone in the party had to order as well. This should be specified on their website.

It was our anniversary and I didn't mention it this year. Two years ago when we arrived we had rose petals on our table. So sweet. This year we were in the overflow room which was like a banquet hall. Bright overhead lighting, no ambience and it took at least 15 minutes to get my drink. In fact my meal arrived before my cocktail Very unhappy. Not what I was looking for
I know these are difficult times and perhaps I should have just stayed home

My husband and I came here for a special occasion to celebrate a milestone of mine at work. We got totally spoiled and had some of the best food and wine on the peninsula. We started by sharing the Fois Gras with apple butter and the smoked Pork Belly. Delicate and well balanced dishes! I loved the Fall-inspired accompaniments and plating. My husband had the Crabcake and I had the braised Short Rib Special and both dishes were seasoned to perfection and very satisfying. For dessert, we tried the flourless chocolate cake which had a lovely cayenne sweet sauce, which sounds a bit out of the ordinary, but was actually quite different and really good! Fin always out does themselves to make us feel special!!! We will probably be back to see Jess and Sabrina next week 🤗

My Husband got the Tuesday Tapas, and I ordered the scallop on risotto. Both were outstanding (we shared). The scallops were probably the best dish we have gotten there. Perfectly seared on a tasty risotto with demi glace and another sauce that were both perfect.
