Went there to celebrate Brazilian Valentine’s Day and it was great! Great food, vinho verde and ambience, just a little bit loud as there was a party of 12 or so at the same room. Will definitely be back.

We all had the arugula salad, which was delicious. Then we shared several small plates. My favorite was the Tuna poke.

Hands down one of the best dining experiences we’ve had in a while! My husband and I had an awesome date night here. We rolled the dice and ordered “The Treatment” and WOW. Everything was absolutely delicious! From the deconstructed sushi bowl to the scallops to the muscles to the cheesecake…. So good! Can’t wait to go here again!

This was our second visit to Fin & Fino. Our first visit was very disappointing but we were given a gift card and decided to give it another try. We were very pleasantly surprised! Our server Andrew suggested “The Treatment” which we agreed to try. This option allows the server and chef to choose your dishes based on your likes and dislikes and the ability to send back anything you’re unhappy with. Nothing went back! Each dish was exceptional….the flavors were perfectly paired and the portions were great for two people. The Treatment comes with a dessert which had to be taken home because we couldn’t eat another bite and was delicious as well. Andrew was very knowledgeable on the food and the wine selections. I have a feeling we’ll be back for a third visit soon and will definitely be requesting Andrew.

I have to say our experience this time around from our Mother’s Day experience is night and day. Food was unbelievably good. I highly recommend the grilled oysters with pablano butter and the fried calamari. The cocktails 80’s theme was pretty delicious too. We’re looking forward to our next visit. Awesome restaurant in the heart of the Queen City.

Our server was excellent. The twist on lobster and shrimp roll was incongruous, spice and additional seasoning overpowered the natural flavor of either fish. The hummus fritters were delicious as good s Mama’s cheesecake. The dusting of espresso powder and beautiful glass of sherry were delightful.

Celebrating our 16 year wedding anniversary, we decided to put our trust in our Waiter and Chef by choosing The Experience. Both food and service was OUTSTANDING. Of all the dishes brought to our table, there was nothing that lacked in any. We will definitely be back, and will definitely order the experience again.

Really love this place and it was just my 1st time there for my birthday!! Absolutely great service, food and drinks. Though the food is more of small, shareable plates, it was still delicious, especially if you love seafood. The OYSTERS are the BEST thing I had and looking forward to having again. It is pricey, but worth it. The service was great and they treat you well for special occasions.

Please do yourself a favor the next time you are in Charlotte, NC and make a reservation at Fin and Fino! This was by far the best experince I've had in a very long time. The food and service are unparalleled. Go ahead and order up "The Treatment" for you and your guests. The server will select specific small and large plates from the menu based on any allergies or preferences you may have. ALSO, order one of the mystery cocktails to which only the bartenders know the secret recipes. The food was unbelievable, from the grilled octopus to mussels and fresh oysters to the KC Strip. This is a definite must-not miss spot for your next special date night or just a regular Thursday!

We dined for the Mother’s Day special. It was$55 per plate. The food was average at best and portions ridiculously small for what you pay for. Service was slow as well, which i understand due to staffing issues. Overall..way over priced for the quantity and quality you get.

Disappointing. Restaurant usually closed on Sunday; this was a Mother’s Day pay upfront 3-course meal with options. Service was slow. First course was good and portions were surprisingly big for the Korean Beef Bowl and arugula salad. Things took a turn on the second course. I ordered “sirloin with chimichurri sauce fingerling potatoes and Mexican street corn”. My medium rare order showed up as four small slices medium well with 3 fingerling potatoes and 1 inch section of a half of an ear of corn, no seasoning. My wife ordered mahi mahi.... 3oz of medium well salmon was delivered. I should have taken pictures of both plates but given our extended wait, we chose to eat and get out.
Didn’t bother making an issue out of it with the waiter as he seemed strung thin, but for $200+ meal, this was way overpriced for the quality and misses on the menu. I will not be going back to F & F and their approach has convinced me to never again pay upfront for an advertised “experience”. Fool me once...

Mother’s Day dinner. Food was very tasty, main dish on the small side. Service was not good. Had to waive someone down to get a fork for my father after main dish served (took almost 10 mins to get a fork). One person in the party didn’t get main dish until almost 15 mins after everyone else. We would’ve ordered another cocktail but we weren’t asked or given opportunity until he cleared our dessert plates (would’ve ordered one 40 mins before that!). Not attentive and we had a ton of patience being it was a major holiday.

First time visiting Fin & Fino. Service and food was great but time it took to get food was a little longer than we expected. It was Mother’s Day so we were somewhat expecting delays but not as much as we experienced.

Because it was a special Mother's Day menu and for a day that the restaurant is not normally open, I was required to pre-pay for the brunch when making the reservation. The amount included the tax and gratuity and a three course meal from a limited menu for $55pp. We were seated and our drink order was taken promptly, but I should mention that the drink menu is ambiguous to the point that you have no idea what is in the drink but can only guess by the name of the drink i.e."80's high school gym locker" or something like that. The waiter attempted to give us a better explanation but it didn't help so I just ordered the Mother's Day cocktail because I could see what was in it.

My meal consisted of lobster bisque/chimichurri sirloin/cheesecake. My sons' ordered the lobster bisque/mahi mahi/carrot cake and tuna-salmon poke/duck/chocolate mousse. We all agreed that the food was delicious and the best thing out of everything was the tuna-salmon poke bowl.

Things went downhill about halfway through, when someone who had not waited on our table previously refilled our water glasses and the water was undrinkable. It tasted and smelled like chemicals. Our waiter replaced our glasses, but then seemed to avoid our table afterward. When it came time for dessert it was announced that they were out of everything but the cheesecake - mind you, we had a relatively early seating in a brunch that lasted from 11am-3pm. The cheesecake was quality, but plain and no toppings offered. As a consolation the waiter offered us some walnut-maple gelato, which sounded delicious, but then brought mango sorbet and said they didn't have the gelato that day. I ended up using the sorbet as a topping for my cheesecake.

The big issue was the gaps between courses: a 15-20 gap between the 1st and 2nd course and not all of our plates were brought out at the same time. Then a 30+ minute gap between the entree and dessert and then another 30 minutes to get the check. We were there for a total of 3 hours.

Mother’s Day event was overbooked and overall service was not what I’ve experienced in the past. Portions were small, the sirloin came out cold and only cheesecake was available for dessert as other options were gone. Disappointed with overall experience but know this was most likely an anomaly.
