Really good options on their happy hour menu! Total bill was $100 for two people (4 drinks, 3 rolls, 1 skewer, edamame, gyoza, pumpkin tempura). I'd go back again

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.

The speaker outside this place was broken and despite asking twice they weren't able to turn down the crackling and noisy music that made it hard for my friend and I to hear eachother. It was 530 and there was no one else here but two other couples. The Fin sushi roll was massive and was too big to eat in one go.. and also hard to cut. Weird place.. wouldn't go back.

We love this place- it will always be our go to. I use to come here as a kid when it was a burrito place and I don’t like change but I’m so grateful for Fin! The jicama fish tacos are our favorite and we always get one order in at the beginning and one at the end of our meal because they are just that good! The service is always wonderful and we have always felt at home at our cozy table in the upstairs back. During covid we would order to go and have our fin date night in the car so we are very grateful to be back at our favorite spot! Thank you Fin for being so delicious and treating us like family!

Extremely loud inside and very small space. Feels like you’re sitting on top of the table next to you and can hear their ENTIRE conversation. Not suitable for date nights or families. Seems like more of a social, bar scene

Host was very strange and position should be reviewed, staff were all over the place with mismatching wardrobe, and overall cleanliness was questionable. The place is desperate for a hands on manager!

Food was very yummy and prices very reasonable! Great happy hour our server was wonderful did his very best.

Would try again but hope this review helps the restaurant.

The food was amazing! I would recommend the fin cut roll and the red gyoza as they were both absolutely delicious. Clara must have been the manager because she was friendly and attentive to all our needs. Clara the host was also great. My only disappointment was the waiter, he had a dry personality and was not friendly at all.

We are local and have been coming here for a while. The seafood dishes are better than the sushi but overall the place is delicious and fantastic. The owners were working because unemployment has ruined everyone’s work ethic and help has become hard to find…with that I will say that the owners and staff did an excellent job. We will be back again and again!

The Staff was really nice. Gyoza's looked interesting based on the menu but were so deep fried and covered in sauce you couldn't really appreciate or taste the difference between what you ordered other than the fried outside and sauce. Overall the food didn't really stand out despite the promising menu.

We went for a date but when we arrived the ambiance was lacking. It looked more like a dive bar - dark. We ordered several appetizers from the Happy Hour menu -
Shrimp gyoza - tasted similar to frozen ones you get at Trader Joe’s
Rock Shrimp - really good!!
Crispy Rice with spicy tuna - very good but the rice was not hot
Crispy rice with avocado - same as the one with the tuna
The rolls we ordered had way too much rice and no seaweed wrap which made them undesirable

Overall basic food - but wouldn’t venture out again

Really realy good. Was not crowded like it was pre covid. We sat in the back. Was quiet so we could have normal voice conversation; the service was excellent, and the food excellent as always. Open table worked just fine, though if you have a few profiles, be careful not to book twice.
