Surrounded by windows overlooking the Salem Harbor, Finz offers guests lively waterfront scenery in a comfortable open concept interior. Of particular note is the 40 seat bar which flows from dining room to lounge, floor to ceiling nautical wall, hand painted lobster octopus mural, open style kitchen and built-in raw and sushi bars. In warmer months, the outdoor patio dining along the water is superb, with spots in the shade or the sun to enjoy a libation or light bites. With events centered around local arts, Finz is the place to experience Salem.

    Were not sat until 45 minutes after reservation time, took another 15 minutes to get a server, two out of 3 dinners were good but the third was cold - not worth 39$ and sent back. Manager did address the cold food and we were not charged for it - offered a free dessert or meal which we declined. Clearly understaffed and poor management of time.

    Food was good - not fantastic, which we were hoping for, but good. Someone had sliced into my scallop to make sure it was cooked through. Nice ambience and the 2 bartenders saved the entire experience by being super personable and attentive. Unfortunately, the host staff (4 teenagers) was unwelcoming and inept.

    This was 3rd time back in a month as we have so enjoyed the food and ambience but last nights’ dinner disappointed. The halibut was dry, and the veggie medley either over cooked or raw. My salad was good but the toro sushi special just ok . Service excellent and great spot .

    We don't usually dine in large, corporate restaurants, but decided upon Finz based on good reviews and our desire to have fresh fish while visiting Salem. The food and service were wonderful. I'm so glad we sat outside, as the inside was a little too sports-on-tv oriented. That aside, the food was great, and it was nice to be by the harbor, and we had a very good meal, with a nice cocktail and great wine.

    We are from NY and we visit Salem every year for the past 4 years. Finz is our absolute favorite spot. It's a nice restaurant with a beautiful view of the water, delicious food with tons of options, and great staff. We had Nicoletta and she was super friendly, accommodating, and helpful when helping us make selections. I highly recommend this restaurant!

    I took my husband for a milestone birthday. Although I stated that we would be celebrating in my reservation and on arrival, there was no acknowledgment. The 4 grilled oysters were small and a bit pricey at $17. We didn’t get our place settings until after the food arrived. When I asked for bread, the waitress did not say there was a charge for the bread and told us the wrong type of bread. My salmon entree was served with skin side up not allowing the sauce to penetrate the fish. My husband’s haddock entree was very bland and dry. Finz has been my go to local restaurant but it was a little disappointing on this last visit.

    I love having a good time with friends. And if we are asked to quiet down a little, I’d like to think we’d be decent enough humans to tone it down. Sadly, my husband and I needed to move inside on a beautiful summer evening because of a rambunctious group of women who seemed to feel their conversation should be heard by everyone on the outdoor deck.

    The lobster roll was a joke: drenched with cheap mayo and virtually inedible. Service was pathetic: it took 90 minutes for our food to arrive. This place is awful and should not be in business.

    Service was brutally slow. Had to ask for drinks we ordered twice, never asked if we wanted another drink. Never checked on us. Watched one other waiter buzz around so attentive to his tables, ours was no where to be found. Cesar salad was dry and boring. My husband got tuna entree, he enjoyed it but the portion was insanely small, avocado was gray. I had chowder and lobster maki. Chowder was bomb! Maki was tasty but there was virtually no lobster, shrimp and crab stick primarily. Not rushing back

    We ate outside with our dog on a Friday afternoon. Our server immediately brought a bowl of water for our dog when she came to take our drink order. We had two seafood dishes and both were very good, although the jerk salmon special was not very seasoned. The orange almond cake was exquisite!
