    We sat outside, since it was a beautiful afternoon. It was a bit noisy with peoples dogs barking. Service was good and pleasant, not rushed! We had drinks and appetizers of crab cakes, nori and calamari. We then ordered Rose' for dinner. There was beautiful Tuna, more nori, haddock and zuppa de peche. All were very good and perfectly presented. Key Lime pie was spot on with its tartness and the coffee was good.

    We love Finz! Everything was delicious. Their take on a wedge salad is unique and very tasty. Lobster rolls-wonderful not too much Mayo. Wait staff are exceptional.

    We were so pleased with this restaurant. Great food, attentive service, fantastic location overlooking the harbor. It was somewhet slower service than some might want, but we had an 11:30 am lunch reservation (we didn’t want to wait for the next slot at 1:45 pm) so we didn’t want to eat right away. It was almost empty when we arrived. Maybe it was because we needed time to choose from the large menu, took our time a little, and by then a really big tour group had come in, along with lots of others. It was packed by the time we got our meals. But we were fine with the timing and the food was great! Mango salmon sushi so fresh and delicious. Halibut was a full filet and perfectly cooked. Great apps, salads and desserts. We’ll be back, assuming we can get a reservation!

    Shrimp Nacho appetizer on Potato Chips was very cheesy and delightful yet, It only had 3 Small pieces of Shrimp. If, Finz’s adds more Shrimp to this app I would recommend it. Otherwise, not a good choice. Entrees included Zuppe Di Pesci. Seafood filled and very well presented. Recommend this. Seafood Paella was another thing on flavor. The Chef must have dropped the salt shaker in the pan while preparing. It was just ok. The salty flavor ruined what was a interesting style of Paella with a full body thicker presentation. I Will try Finz’s again as this may have been an aberration.

    The view is amazing, and the service was lovely. The food was good, mostly, although occasionally less than hoped for given the prices. Cocktails were basically good. Appreciated their ability to seat us outside with an online reservation.

    We had a wonderful outdoor dining experience at Finz last night. We had no problem getting an outdoor table, much to our relief as we are concerned about Covid. From our Painkillers to the flourless chocolate cake, every dish was delicious, and our server, Melissa, was efficient and friendly.

    Enjoyed outdoor dinning. We absolute perfect day and the view and the meal matched. Started with Whole Belly Clam appetizer which was on point, crispy and delicious. My wife had Salmon that she loved. I went with the Seafood Paella which was loaded with shrimp, clams, mussels, calamari and scallops and had great flavor. Highly recommended

    The food is not good. The maki rolls tasted as if they had bee prepared a long time ago. The sushi itself was minced up and pasty. The rice was so pasty, it resembled goo. The main course came immediately upon arrival of the appetizer. The service was good. But the food is absolutely terrible.
