Mediocre food, mushy tuna roll, got seated away from the entire restaurant in an empty room with, literally, every table open, asked the hostess to seat us at a larger table she refused saying there were reservations yet no one ever showed up. Do not recommend.

Fin has been a long time favorite however since they started to add an automatic tip of 15% the service has declined. I normally tip more than 15% but refuse to add anything additional to an automatic service charge. Especially when the service doesn’t warrant it.

Food was great! Tried the dine LA menu and it didn’t disappoint. The first two courses were small like appetizers. Main course was filling. Sadly the service was terrible. Waited 25 minutes for the 1st course, about 35 for the second course and maybe like a few minutes till the last course showed up. Host didn’t even make an attempt to say hi. Didn’t even know if I was checked in for a reservation till my friend had to flag down another person bc the only thing the host said when I provided my name was “yeah ok.” Waited was rude after I had asked for a new cup of water since there was a lipstick stain on the one we received. Didn’t come to check up on us. When I asked how much longer for the dumplings( second course) said he would check but went outside and came back in with a supposed 2 minutes. The kitchen is inside so how are you telling me you know when I’ll receive my food when you just came from being outside. Anyways, wouldn’t come here again unless it’s takeout. Also parking was really hard to find.

Overall this was a nice experience. We ordered from the DineLA menu. It took forever for our cocktails to be served and then my husband’s tasted like a weak gimlet and mine was almost too sweet to drink. In the fixture I’ll be sticking to the wine.The first course was served in a much more timely manner and was very good. The second course was also timely and also very good. For the third course the service returned to a snails pace and had issues. My salmon and veggies were cooked perfectly but the Yuzu Buerre Blanc looked and tasted like bland white sauce. My husband’s mashed potatoes were great although amusing to eat with chopsticks but the steak, which tasted great, was tough with an inordinate amount of gristle. We will definitely come back we’ll stick to the fish. And while I would recommend to friends it would be with the caveat to stick to the wine and the fish.

We made a same day reservation on a Saturday night for DineLA week and then added another couple to our reservation later that day and Abraham was very accommodating for an outside table. This was the Best Buy we have seen on DineLA, with a 3 course dinner for $25. The food was fresh and tasty and generous portions, especially for that cost. It was a bit noisy sitting on Washington Blvd, along with the music in the background, but we were able to converse without difficulty. We will return.

Food wasn't as good as in the past. My husband had steak that was very chewy. Waiter didn't seem too concerned. Courses come out too quickly. They need to wait until one is completed before the next come. You feel rushed.

We went to Fin Asian Tapas for the DineLA menu and selected the salmon entree. Overall, the server was slow in responding but the other waitstaff sort of hovered to clear plates even when you weren't through. It seemed like they were trying to get diners in and out. The food was average. The salmon had too much sauce and the crispy onion albacore was nothing special. Overall, I would not go out of my way to return.

Service was possibly the worst we have ever had anywhere- asked for water three times, we never got that! Food was extremely underwhelming, the sushi was at grocery store/gas station level at best- the crab roll was 80% rice. Waiter was in a very bad mood, very rude. Extremely disappointing in every way possible, we thought we’d order a few rounds of food like we normally do at tapas restaurants but ended up cutting our meal short after the first round of food and going elsewhere.

Food is gross! We ordered sushi roll that was 70% rice and 30% sushi which was plated very unattractively and unappetizing. We also ordered Jicama fish taco that is a 1-bite sized, pork dumplings that have a gross orange sauce, and a beef gyoza in lobster sauce with the sauce that tasted similar to a diluted powered packet from the store. And get this, they automatically add 15% gratuity on your bill, hence their waiters are absolutely unattractive to your needs. We dine out often, and this restaurant is by far the worst restaurant we’ve ever been. Lastly, you’ll be disappointed with how the restaurant interior looks like. The Inside is nothing like in the pictures posted on OpenTable!

FIN has been a regular neighborhood restaurant for us for years, as a couple and with kids--who still come with us now that they're post-college. Food and service are excellent, in every respect. We order at least one of the amazing Salmon Truffle Sashimi at every visit, sometimes splitting it, sometimes each getting his/her own. Jicama Fish Tacos, Spicy Yellowtail Tempura, Tuna and Albacore specialty appetizers, Grilled Avocado, Chicken Teriyaki Bowl, Lobster/Beef Gyoza are also regulars. We usually make meals out of appetizers. You can't go wrong. The Covid sidewalk patio is as nice as any, a little breezy at the sides. The dining room can get noisy (popular, hard surfaces, the usual) so ask for the back one if that matters. Servers are nice and attentive.

Food is delicious but took a long time to arrive. A free drink or appetizer would have been nice after waiting over half an hour for a roll.

Generally I really like this place and the servers are really nice. Cocktails are delicious.

The food at FIN is outstanding. Every item we ordered was delicious. Happy hour is a great deal. It would be a good time to try the food at this restaurant because you can sample a variety of items affordably and come back for dinner knowing what you might like to order. The main menu is a bit pricey in my opinion however, my tight budget is probably not a good measure of what's affordable. Our server, a young blonde woman was excellent. She was attentive and sincerely helpful without being imposing. The decor and ambiance is nothing special but the food will make up for that. I highly recommend trying FIN at least once.

This place is totally amazing. I was looking for sushi for a business meal and came across this restaurant in Trip Advisor. The positive reviews were right on point. Abraham was great on the phone and assure we would have a good experience. He was correct. A tip; when unsure, order the house favorites, you won’t go wrong.
