Fabulous restaurant! We chose the $59 per person option. This included about 10-12 small plates (we received 12) items on the menu that our waiter chose for us based on a few initial preference questions. We ended up having the opportunity to try things that we probably would have been hesitant to order on our own. All of the dishes we received were absolutely fabulous!

We love the food at Fin and Fino. The mussels in curry sauce are divine. Also, a comment about the service: just exceptional attention from Ryan last evening, but we noted that service at all the Rare Roots venues is a cut above. Must be a great company to work for and this only benefits diners.

The cocktails are very flavorful and strong. The raw oysters were perfectly salty and had nice vinegar or hot sauce choices. We also tried the green curry mussels, scallops, corvina fish special, baked crab toppee oysters, mini lobster rolls, all very tasty. Cheesecake is light and airy, to die for and they added a candle and a complimentary additional dessert since we were celebrating a birthday.

Server was amazing! Overall a really great experience. We didn't realize the menu was primarily small plates before we went. But, it turned it out to be a great way to try several dishes on the menu. Great location right next to Knight Theater. Inside is bright and airy; another excellent Dressler's restaurant!

Our only disconcern was the menu, it’s not that clear, or understandable. For a seafood restaurant, they can improve the menu, and offer more. Food was excellent, very well balanced.

This was during a business trip, and had the chance to go downtown Charlotte. The restaurant is about one year old, however the ambiance is nice, and the interior of the restaurant modern. Very good selections for drinks and food. Service was very good, the personnel was very attentive to our needs. We did have the fried calamari, which was very tasty, and the salmon. Very good again - would come back next time we are in town!

Beautiful restaurant. Our waitress was very nice but did not seem familiar with the menu or changes on the menu. This was a bit disappointing. Food was just OK. I was expecting more. I had the Calamari which was a bit overcooked and the oysters which were just ok. Was not a memorable experience for me.

We went prior to a Panthers game and had a reservation. It was incredibly loud with the bar people spilling over and their conversations into the dining area. We asked for a quieter spot, but none were available. The server was adorable, but the service was EXTREMELY slow and again hard to hear anything he was saying. I ordered oysters on the half shell and salmon; our party of four all ordered two small plates each. All eight of their dishes were served (including a steak!) before I even got my six oysters. If the shucker is that far behind - you should probably mention it. They were all finished with their meals before I got my first plate. And the salmon was overcooked so must have been sitting under heat for 30 min. I loved this restaurant the first time I visited right after it opened, but will not go back.

Great food and atmosphere. More casual than we were expecting, but fun and reasonably priced with good portions. Went for our anniversary and our waitress treated us to not just one, but multiple desserts! The bartender also made a custom drink for my wife (it was one of the choices on the drink menu to make a custom drink) and they didn’t disappoint. Amazing oyster list/choices!

Our waiter, Chris, was outstanding as always. The food was not great—curried mussels had little curry flavor and the clam pasta dish was tough. The heirloom tomato salad and the scallops were delicious.

Great service for a meal for two at the bar. Our bartender guided us through cocktails, oysters and shareable plates based on our likes. Will recommend to anyone coming to Charlotte as a must visit. Oysters and clam tagliatelle were the stars of the show. Well done!

Booked a table for our anniversary. We tend to be adventurous, so we chose the Treatment option and let the chef make the dish choices for us. We were rewarded for our trust. All the plates we were served we enjoyed, especially the bahn mi grilled shrimp. The pacing of the courses was perfect. We left very full and very satisfied with our decision. We look forward to visiting again.

Beautiful dining atmosphere that was very sophisticated in style by a very relaxed vibe. The food was phenomenal; excellent quality, fresh and delicious. We we’re celebrating a special occasion with a large party. We had numerous items from the menu and every one was outstanding. This was a true experience, not just dinner. Absolutely the best upscale seafood in Charlotte.

I have eaten at Fin & Fino for four or five business lunches now and they have delivered each time. The food and service are great. It can sometimes be a little loud at lunch, but nothing that would stop normal conversation at the table. Overall, a solid pick for a business lunch.
