The oysters were fresh and delicious. We also split the chowder and fig flatbread. Can’t wait to go back.

Have been here for breakfast every time I visit Boston. The avocado toast is on point and the service is always good. Can’t wait to return for dinner one day.

Although the food was good, can’t say it was worth the price. We were only given the set 3 course dinner menu and didn’t know they were serving their regular dinner menu. My girlfriend was not happy when she realized other tables were receiving different dishes. She had some dishes in mind from the regular dinner menu and since it was her birthday, it ruined her mood during dinner. The server was nice enough to take off the desserts.

We got to Fins at 3:45pm on Saturday. This is our second time here. We were in Boston to see White Christmas with our two adult daughters. We all love oysters and were thrilled to see the sign $1.00 oysters on Saturday and Sunday. We ordered a dozen of oysters and wine. Wait staff is fantastic and the atmosphere so festive. We ordered some more food and another 1/2 dozen oysters. All was great until the bill was presented to me. All the oysters were $3.50 or more? I inquired about this and the waiter said the $1 oysters are only till 4pm. WHAT??? He heard us all saying how fantastic it is that there were $1 oysters AND the sign as we entered Fin Point doesn't say till 4pm. He took the bill and corrected the first dozen BUT NOT the 1/2 dozen. WHAT???? anyhow I wrote the management but to date NO RESPONSE. Great time until the bill ......

Lunch started out well, good service and friendly wait staff. However, as soon as it got busy we lost our waitress. Had to flag her down to get our check. Our waitress was clearly trying to cover too many tables, so we ended up with an almost 2 hour lunch because service was slow. Need to hire more people. Food was good, salads are very small - not entree size.

I held a holiday business lunch at Fin Point and my clients had a great experience. The food was top notch and the service was very attentive. The only complaint was the noise (due to the design of the room I guess) made it somewhat difficult to talk. That problem was alleviated when the other party left. I would not hesitate to dine there again. Delicious!

Service was pretty slow particularly from the bar. We almost left because we waited 10 minutes to give our first drink order. It was very busy. Glad we stayed because the food was outstanding! The wine list is adventurous too

Really wonderful dinner at Fin Point on a Saturday night - only two complaints were that the octopus appetizer was quite over salted (albeit the dish overall was delicious) and our waiter, though really very pleasant and accommodating, was a tad too eager in waiting on our table (I.e. asking if we’re ready every 2 minutes and cleaning up around us towards the end of the dinner). However these are two minor points and the food and service overall was outstanding and we would definitely return!

For a dinner, I wouldn't recommend this establishment. The service, while friendly, it slow due to overwork, and completely forgot our drink order. So the management is really to blame here, not the wait staff themselves. Food was good, not amazing, but better than average. The food presentation was also above average. All in all, with as many options as Boston has, I'd recommend looking elsewhere for a dinner experience.

Had a very enjoyable meal with my son (23),his friends and a close family couple with their 2 children as well.

They seated us at a table for 10 in the back room which was perfect for us. No rush and we spent 3 lovely hours catching up.

Excellent meal, very accommodating on the menu adaptions (gluten free, minor substitutions). Even redoing one entree when my husband realized what he thought was a salad was actually a flatbread pizza. The promptly redid it and it was excellent.

A bit noisy but it was sat night right before Halloween! Staff was very professional and service was very well done. Oysters, appetizers and entrees were excellent.

The ambiance is well done - abstract fish and artwork, along with a private dining room that was cozy. The only reason i gave it 4 stars is because i felt like for the space, the ceiling should be a tad higher. But not much you can do with a hotel above you, and frankly this is a very personal observations and probably not relevant to most! Fin Point is a great choice if you are close to the seaport district and worth a trip from another part of town.

My husband and I came out for date night and overall, really enjoyed the food. The food and drink was autumn themed which made everything really fun! I had the sangria which was not mixed very well and the first drink was a mouthful of syrup but it was a decent drink after it was mixed. We ordered the salmon and scallops, both which were really good.
