We were definitely pleased with the food but it felt like our table was an afterthought service-wise...perhaps because he had tables near the window and we were near the hostess stand. A manager actually had to ask us if anyone had come by yet.
My martini was served with a lemon wedge instead of olives.I thought that was unusual.When my son asked for a beer he was finally served just a lukewarm can of beer.
My son had to go to the bar to get a chilled glass.
Other than that the food came out timely and was really delicious. We had also visited your sister restaurant Sea level 2x and was very pleased.

We had a beautiful table near a fireplace, very romantic. Our server was friendly and checked with us just the right amount. The noise level was perfect-happy chatter in the background but not loud enough to make it hard to hear our conversation. The seafood was utterly delicious and more than enough.

The food was all very good and our server was fantastic, but we had a reservation for 7:45 and didn't end up getting seated until almost 8:30. They did comp a first round of drinks to make up for the wait, but not until we were already seated.

Came here while on trip to North Shore. Was recommended by Trip Advisor. The oysters and tuna were so outstanding for our first visit, we came back the next night for the blue crab martini appetizer and a salmon poke entree.

My girlfriend and I both ordered the lobster mac and cheese. Finz rendition is more like a lobster vodka creme sauce. The taste was definitely good for a vodka sauce. But both of us only got about a claw and a half of lobster meat. When you're paying 23 bucks for lobster mac and cheese you expect the star of the dish to be cheese creamy lobster goodness, not a negligible amount of lobster in a a red sauce.

The atmosphere was very pleasant, with decor associated to the seaside. Meals were absolutely delicious however wine selection was on the small side, but fairly well priced.
Service was adequate, waiter did seem to be quite busy as it was Valentines Day

We had a very delicious dinner and wonderful evening at finz this evening. I ordered the platter raw seafood lobster &. Shrimp and it was a wonderful dish and a great price and then ordered the clambake which was equally delicious and the size of my lobster was wonderful. My husband enjoyed his steak tips and we finished it off with the delicious dessert berries and whip cream and ice cream. Our staff was wonderful I will definitely return again. I do miss the Brussel sprouts! Please bring them back.

We arrived a bit early for our Valentine's Day reservation but had no problem being seated right away. The staff we interacted with were friendly and personable, especially our server. Because of the holiday, we were sort of squished into a 2-top next to a support pillar, with very little room between the adjoining tables. That was disappointing, particularly since there were other better seating options that remained open during our entire meal. Onto the food. We ordered some Chatham and Barnstable oysters and a Caesar salad to begin, and both arrived promptly, and were flavorful. I ordered one of the martinis from their featured bar menu and found it tasty and not skimpy on the alcohol. Too often when I order martinis, they go heavy on the flavorings and lite on the Tito's. At Finz, the proportions in their martinis were just right. My husband ordered the Grilled Swordfish from the regular menu. Our server said it was an excellent choice, and it was. I kept stealing bites from hubby's plate. I ordered the Sole PIcatta which came with sautéed spinach and ricotta mashed potatoes. I wasn't as pleased with my meal. The little amount of sole I got was buried under way too much sauce, with the spinach under that, and the bottom layer was heavy with their signature mashed potatoes. It was all one note, with no texture. I picked through the fish and spinach, and left behind what I would call a double serving of potatoes. It could have easily been called Mashed Potato Picatta. Though it was only $20, it wasn't worth even that. After dinner, we got a few more drinks. Again, drinks were Espresso Martini was a good capstone. Kudos to the bartender. We also got the berry shortcake, which we finished. Overall, good service with a a star or two off for my meal.

Food selection was great and overall, quite YUMMY! Derrick our waiter was fabulous. We were there for our standing weekly-date-night, which happens to be on a Tuesday so I suspect that the noise level of 'quiet conversation' is a mid-week thing. Seems that the weekends would be a bit more animated. All in all we LOVED IT! #FinzRocks
