Absolutely love this place, so we come back every time we visit Boston!
The flat breads and the beet salad are amazing. The beet salad is different based on the season,
however always great. For main dishes we tried the chicken, lamb and fish ones, and everyone was equally excited about the flavors and presentation. Can't wait to be back!

Their raw bar was outstanding. Wellfleet oysters were big, meaty, creamy, and incredibly tasty. My wife and I are oyster lovers but always wondered why Boston has no place where you can enjoy truly delicious oysters like west coast or European restaurants. We finally found one! Other menu items such as torched ahi tuna and grilled octopus were also very good. Our server Yuliya (Yulia?j was very nice and efficient. We will be back!

Absolutely nothing special about Fin Point. Like most modern restaurants the room is designed to generate maximum noise when the tables are full - Open Table calls it “energetic”, but its actually just Loud. There seems to be a new restaurant in this hotel every 4 or 5 years. Don’t know why they can’t find one people want to return to, but the restaurants probably last as long as they do because most of the diners are on company expense accounts and don’t even think about whether Fin Point was worth it.

Delicious meal. Located in a hotel but not hotel-type food. Although on the high price side, the entire meal was so remarkable. The chicken and the scallops were done to great satisfaction and the waitrees, Ellie, was so informative and helpful. Definitely will re-visit this restaurant soon.

We went on NYE and expected it to be a little bit crazy. To our surprise, we were sat nearly immediately (thanks to our Open Table reservation). Our server had a busy section but was still very attentive and didnt skip a beat in providing us great service. Food was amazing and presented beautifully. Live music was playing but wasn't so powerful that we couldn't hear each other talk across the table. It was a perfect noise level. A special bonus, it was so beautifully decorated for the holidays. Just the cherry on top of an excellent experience!

We went for drinks and liked the staff very much the Manager Conor was super nice yet professional and our waitress Ellie was very happy and bubbly.
We decided to try dinner there the next evening, different staff but still very good. The food did take an age to get to us after an hour and a half we had only had one drink and a starter of four shrimp and a starter of back ribs. It was a longtime to wait and while we appreciate the food is cooked to order we thought some bread or something similar while we waited would have been appreciated. It was not overly busy in the restaurant either so not sure why it took so long.
We noticed that the staff dress code was confusing the guys wore shirts and waistcoats etc yet our waitress had a skimpy top and leggings which got us into a discussion what type of restaurant are they trying to portray. The restaurant itself is really lovely yet there are eight screens around the walls. It is a romantic spot in the evening with lots of couples having dinner. However, most of the guys were watching the TVs personally I’m not keen in TVs in really nice restaurants.
This being said, the food and wine was very good, the service was good too, it was just the distraction of the TVs that in my opinion let it down.

While portions of our meal were excellent, the scallops were over cooked. A “no-no”, especially since it was indicated on the menu that they would be barely cooked as a warning for those who may not like that. The meal took 25 minutes to get to us and we were too hungry to send it back. Other than that lovely tastes and a great server !

I was here with my friends on a Christmas Eve. The restaurant wasn’t full so it was quiet and cozy. The oysters were very fresh and good. We had lobster roll, salmon, steak frites, and clam chowder and all of them were REALLY GOOD!! I wish the server was a little more knowledgeable on wine, but it’s ok.

Service:
Not impressed by service. He pushed us along, gave us the highest priced items when we asked for recommendation and wasn’t very attentive.

Food:
Oysters were incredible!! The seared tuna salad, however, was small for the price and a lot of bitter cabbage which wasn’t pleasant.

I booked Fin Point for a 4 person business dinner not realizing it was in the Hilton. The service staff was friendly and put us at a relatively quiet table as I had requested. We started with the fried calamari and oyster tacos, the latter which were excellent 3 of us had the lobster roll which was good but could have used more seasoning. I would certainly recommend Fin Point for business travelers and as a good financial district location for dinner.

Fin Point was an unexpected surprise. We picked it because it was close to an event around the corner. The service was great and the food was delicious. The duck and swordfish were big hits. If you are looking for a place downtown in the financial district I would definitely recommend it.
