During peak hours it is really loud in this restaurant. We found ourselves screaming at each other to be heard. The best Spicy Tuna on Crispy Rice in town!

Went for the first time because of DineLA. The service was great and the food was so good and at a great value! The rib eye and baked crab roll were stellar!

Worth it for dinela.
However, customers are “Loud. Drunk. Rude.”

My woman and I celebrated our tenth anniversary. Minus the pedantic chatter of some generation X types, it was a nice place to do so.

The quality of the food was excellent and well worth a visit from anyone that has not been to Fin.

Enjoyed the ambiance and “hello kitty” cocktails immensely. Romantic, quaint, but modern. Food was good and very generously portioned. Parking with valet was easy and convenient. Overall a great spot away from LA bustle. Well priced.

We ordered the three course menu, and each item was quite tasty.
We were impressed that the small plates weren't so small.
Re ambiance, we sat in the back section, which was relatively quiet (we were
there on Sunday at 6 pm.)
But that area was also rather dark for reading the menu. (luckily, we had flashlights.)
Service was cheerful and friendly.

The food was delicious, we had the washington roll, which was my fave, fin roll, spicy tuna roll, salmon roll and the cheesecake for dessert made my weep it was so good.
The service is friendly, and I like that the lights are dimmed and the music is great.
All round good place to enjoy food in a fun atmosphere.

The tuna wasn’t fresh... worst crispy rice I’ve ever tasted. Miso Cod wasn’t good either. I won’t come back unless it’s only for cocktails.

Previously everything about Fin was great. Unfortunately, even though my reservation was confirmed on open table - they were closed when I got there for my reservation. No one from Fin attempted to contact me to inform me that they would be closed! I drove from Ojai (120 miles round trip) and the reservation was for a business dinner meeting with a client. I had to scramble to find another place to eat which did not make a good impression on my client. Particularly after telling him how great the food was at Fin. I called Fin and left them a message regarding the above. I received no return call or apology very unprofessional and inconsiderate. Mistakes are forgivable but failing to return my voice mail message and offer an explanation or apology is not. Its a shame - Fin was one of my favorite restaurants in Culver City but based upon the above I won't be returning to Fin or recommending Fin. .

I've been going to FIN for a very long time. The food is delicious! But if you have a reservation at 6:45PM, don't expect to get the Happy Hour menu -- ask for it -- then the waitstaff gets a bit squirrelly, looking at their watch to see that it is indeed before 7PM, then they will come back and say you have to be quick because the computer will automatically change over at 7 and you won't get Happy Hour pricing. It's all a bit awkward and weird (it's happened twice now). At most places I've been to when you sit down before Happy Hour ends the waitstaff will just say - hey, let me know what you'd like and we can get that order in before Happy Hour ends. It comes off very nickel & dime-like at FIN though. We ordered a bunch of HH items but also ordered off the regular menu as well.

Love this restaurant! Definitely a neighborhood gem that's worth the visit. I've taken 4 different sets of friends to Fin and they've all raved about the variety and quality of the dishes. The lobster glazed gyoza, asparagus wrapped asparagus, and the albacore sashimi starter are always delish! Get the filet with truffled mash entrée and you will not be disappointed. My friends had the crab fried rice, the lamb chops and the salmon....all simply amazing. Service is always outstanding and Jessie the bartender makes the best cocktails."
