Perhaps our fault for this one. The menu did not line up with our tastes and preferences. We decided to eat here for proximity reasons. We prefer lots of grilled/blackened fish options + veggies, this is not their format. We chose to eat here, our bad. Had some poor execution by the bar . . . these things happen but was frustrating for us. Once again, busy night with ACC Championship in town.

Roll it all up, we probably won't be back but not an indictment on the restaurant as a whole. Simply will gravitate to other establishments where we have better luck with service and food options that we prefer.

Enjoyed a quiet lunch with a friend. Service was quick & good and the food was delicious. The $20 prix fix was just right with a cup of soup and half salad and a small main course.

Excellent service, food was quite good. Very cool vibe. A bit pricey for what you get. Overall, a great experience right before going to see a show across the street at the Knight theatre.

Poor service. We ordered the treatment and they didn’t explain anything. No explanation around what food came out or how the process worked. We only received 2 small plates and the steak because “the steak is a more expensive item.” We also bought a bottle of a recommended wine from our server. We told her we wanted a Red that wasn’t sweet and the wine she suggested was sweet. After spending $200 I expected more.

Really enjoyed our experience last Friday. Ordered “The Treatment” and was not disappointed. It was a great way to try multiple things on the menu and perfect for a small group. Will definitely be back.

We celebrated a Girls night out with an overnight at The Kimpton and then walked to Fin & Fino. From the moment we walked into the restaurant we knew we were in for an amazing dining experience. Blaze was our server and she was awesome… The food was over-the-top and great for sharing and the prices are quite reasonable. I highly recommend this place!

The atmosphere and food were excellent. We were early for our reservation so decided to sit at the bar first and just stayed to order dinner there. It was about 8:30 p.m. on a Friday night. It was busy but there were several open seats at the bar. The bartenders never asked if we wanted another drink until at least a 1/2 hour after our food came (and our drinks were very low). It was also hard to get their attention. I asked for bread when the meal came (which did not come with the meal) and I had finished eating and still no recognition that she never either put in the request for the bread or just plain forgot completely. I will come again because I loved the food and atmosphere but I will not sit at the bar. We will come and sit at the table with the reservation hoping service is better. I honestly never write reviews but felt this was necessary for a few reasons.

I suggest choosing your own dishes rather than having the server pick the items for you. Overall great experience and the oysters were spectacular but don’t fall for the $60/pp trap of having them pick your dishes.

Overall, it was a great experience. My only thought is that the drink prices are a little high ($15/mixed drink). But food was all excellent. Worth a visit.

We have had Chris as our server multiple times and he consistently provides excellent service. He has a very good knowledge of wine pairings with the food.I have always appreciated the variety of oysters you have but missed the dropper bottles of different condiments that previously came with it. The one negative was the octopus and sausage entree. The broth was excellent but the octopus was a little tough.Also portion size was disproportionate to cost. Overall an excellent experience as usual.

First off, I think the place made me sick, but there's no way to know for sure. Secondly, apart from my sister arranging a bottle of wine for us at arrival, the service was AWFUL. Hostess was very unwelcoming. We rarely saw our waitress and when we did it was brief and rushed. The whole restaurant seemed slammed and in the weeds. Raw oysters took like 20 minutes to come out.Food service veteran here and thank goodness I'm not in the industry anymore. I was really looking forward to this meal but left feeling like this is yet another trendy flash in the pan that'll just flicker out...

Earl, Earl, Earl! You really made our night! We loved your sense of humor, your big smile, and your service was fantastic.

I thought it was kind of weird when we chose to do the Chef inspired dinner and you started asking us a lot of questions. We really could've been more pleased with the choices of food and wine pairing that you prepared for us. Your chefs were amazing!And your wine pairings matched our courses perfectly, I will have to rate this in one of my top 10 meals/experience.

Everything that you had the chefs prepared for us was incredible for the presentation and the taste.

Earl you made that Experience for us. We appreciate, good food, good vine, great service, and your personality matched as well.

I WOULD go back and do the chef inspired five course meal again and you my friend, Earl would be our choice to take care of us once again.
