After a week of going to several of LA's top sushi places I was feeling a little sushi-'d out but I agreed to giving FIN a try. REALLY glad I did- FIN was a standout. Fantastic food and tremendous service. Perfect if you're looking for a restaurant with a cool vibe but you'd also like to hear the other person talk. Cocktails were on point. We had tickets, but I wish we could have stayed longer to order dessert or try upstairs. Next time!

You can eat better dumplings in most decent Chinese restaurants. You can eat better sushi in a Japanese restaurant. The food was okay, but not great.

Service wasn't good. We ordered the four course prix fixe menu for two... got our third course first, then had to ask multiple times for the first two courses... course 1 and 4 came out together, then I had to ask for 2 again which finally showed up and wasn't very good. The waiter seemed exasperated and blamed the new management... but it still didn't fix the situation. Food was okay overall -- not enough to compensate for bad service and courses way out of order.

The Valentine's day dinner menu was very nice and delicious. It was odd though that a chef who is so particular about his menu and having everything just his way decides to serve ice cream for desert that is nothing but ice crystals and for $6 on top of the desert cost. I would have taken the vanilla ice cream and tossed it out rather then serve it. Obviously it had been allowed to melt and refreeze again. I wouldn't expect anything to be wrong at a high end restaurant like this, but mistakes happen. The automatically added tip on the bill for the kitchen staff was also a little odd to see too.

Came here for dinela. Our server was very attentive and had suggestions about everything. The sushi and sashimi were pretty good. The salmon was just ok. My friend had several small dishes, all of which he seemed to enjoy. It's got a nice deck area. Might try again.

Came here with 5 of my friends for dineLA. It was definitely a great choice! The value we got for our 3-course meal as a result of the dineLA deal was awesome, and the food was exceptionally good. I ordered the salmon truffle sashimi for my first course, the pumpkin tempura with curry salt for my second, and the yuzu beurre blanc grilled salmon for my third. They were all delicious and unique flavors I hadn't tried together before; plus, the textures were also fantastic! A few of my friends ordered some other things from the dineLA menu (I think between the 6 of us, we all tried at least 1 of the 9 different options), and we all thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience. We were seated at a big, comfy booth-table at the back of the outdoor patio (under a heat lamp, so the temperature was great), and the ambiance was definitely enjoyable! Bonus, since it was later on a weeknight, we were able to find free street parking super close to the restaurant. Our host Mike and waiter Ryan took pretty good care of us. I think we would all be willing to come back here again, especially if it's not a Sunday or Monday and that means we can explore the upstairs bar area, as it wasn't open the day we went. Definitely a worthwhile place to check out for happy hour, late night tapas, date night, group get-togethers, etc.!

Joined for the Dine LA specials. SO DELICIOUS!!! The onion albacore sashimi melted in my mouth and was truly the greatest tuna I have ever had. I will fantasize about it til we meet again. The spicy tuna crispy rice was delectable as well. And so was the grilled salmon(with a side of rice). Lovely atmosphere...except for the lights which kept dimming every 15 minutes or so, that was odd. However, I cannot wait to go back.

Found this place on the DineLA website and decided it would be a good way to try a new place, having just moved to Los Angeles in July we are still discovering places we like. I'm so glad we chose FIN because we loved everything about our experience - the food, the service, the atmosphere. One of the managers was helping us and he recommended two absolutely tasty sakes that was throughly enjoyed and he was very attentive. We will definitely be returning for the regular menu!

My husband and I have been to Fin twice now, as it is close to where we live. It has a heated patio and such delicious food! Try their multi-course omakaze sushi meal. The shishito peppers are amazing, and I have never tasted such juicy, battered gyoza. Fresh sushi, delicious filet mignon, and creative yummy cocktails. Great place if you're looking for a nice date night!

Only real issue was that our (shared) roll came about 30 minutes after everything else that we ordered. The waiter finally acknowledged and said that they were “a bit backed up” (as others all around us (who arrived after we did) were being served their rolls and other items), and after that point it was at least another 15 minutes. Another staff member said it would be “right out” which turned out to be about 10 min before we actually got it. I certainly understand that things get backed up sometimes, but there was a complete absence of responsibility for our understandable frustration. At other restaurants, when I have experienced waits less “severe” than what we dealt with, there has been at the very least an apology, and often a small gesture to demonstrate that they actually meant it. So all in all the food was good but service was disappointing (again). I say that with the caveat that the gentleman who actually brought most of the items to our table (and cleared it when we were done) - not our waiter - was extremely professional.

don't usually write reviews and have been to Fin Asian in Hollywood multiple times but latest visit was a nightmare. extremely poor service. 35 min to get a drink 1 hour after ordering first dish arrives. wrong dishes being brought to tables all around. credit cards lost, mischarged, no apologies besides more people are here then we thought. food also was cold when it did make it table. they need to seriously assess things before would ever advise anyone to head here. shame. great location and usually good food.

The food and service was amazing; loved the salmon sashimi (I don’t eat salmon sashimi unless it’s really good and this one was amazing). Also, the drinks were really good (I had the Hello Kitty with no agave because I don’t like any sweetener and it was made perfect; usually when I remove the sweetener it doesn’t taste as good but this one was perfect).
