Celebrated a family member completing the Boston Marathon. The staff was incredibly sweet and complimentary. The beet salad was hearty and the bouillabaisse was delicious and flavorful. The little card and photo we got at the end was super sweet as well. Great end to a great day!

Service was great. Food is very good, but not the best by far, and yet it’s quite expensive. Appetizers in particular were expensive for relatively small portions. Main courses were substantial enough.

I contemplated giving 3 stars, but that seems a little harsh. We had a good time, and I’d be willing to try it again, but no hurry on that. We were able to get an outside table and there was no time limit. Our waitress was absolutely fantastic.

We enjoyed the salmon main course and tuna main course. The fish was delicious, but we weren’t as impressed with the sides. With the salmon main, the Brussel sprouts were good, but risotto was disappointing. The scallop main course wasn’t so great. The oysters were good but nothing to rave about. (Only one type - Duxbury - smallish.)

The staff were very competent and friendly.

This was not as good as I was expecting. It was okay service and the wine pours were so small. Not even 5oz.

The food was ok. Nothing like you'd expect for a higher end restaurant. The bone in sirloin was pretty tough and not prime quality.

Do not recommended for the price.

It was nice to be back at a lunch in-person. Fin Point was a great spot ever since the building was gutted and the Hilton went in. Still very nice.

For this price point the service should have been better - it was slow on a bit too busy night. My steak was overdone and dry - as if it had been sitting under a salamander for a long time. I had been here before and everything was great, but last night was disappointing. I won’t be back.

My husband and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary in Boston. It was perfect. I found this restaurant while planning our trip and reserved a table. Upon getting to the restaurant we were greeted by a wonderful host and seated in a very pleasant environment. The meal from start to finish was AMAZING!

We had a nice dinner. The scallops were nicely prepared but a little sparse on the portions. Oysters and spring rolls were decent. Ambience was great and we had a nice round table near the window. The service was attentive and very accommodating for some food allergies we had.

The restaurant is convenient situated in the lobby of the Hilton, great for when you are weary after a long day in the city. We found the portions to be tasty but dainty ... and the prices to be lofty.
However, the most disturbing to us especially in the world of Covid - and this is something I admit we should have found the manager to address this - there were white oval plates on each table setting. Once we ordered, these plates were removed, and placed in a cabinet adjacent to where we were seated at a table for two. The plates were then reused on other tables, or if diners asked for extra plates. In the old days, I would have thought this gross. In these days, I found it totally unacceptable and unhealthy. I think this high end restaurant should have their SOP and servers trained never to reuse anything that was previously on another table. Those plates were "burned" and NOT for reuse.

Oysters were originally bad. Heads server/manager took care of it by giving us a better selection of oysters which amounted to an additional 6. But in the end there was no discount on the bill. We paid full price for everything and it was marginal at best. I think you should change you policy. Cant recommend as people expect a restaurant to comp bad food.

It was our Anniversary. We were treated like royalty! Comped us with starter of 2 glasses of champagne, then 6 oysters. Our Lobster Ravioli was great. Then presented with a wonderful cheesecake, and a photo. We will never forget it!

Fin Point has been my go to lunch location for some time. I really enjoy the Salmon entre. However at my last lunch there last week I noticed a "kitchen fee" for $2.00 which I found outrageous. I won't be going back.

The seared tuna salad was one of the best I have ever had. Think tuna poke bowl over fresh greens in a ginger soy dressing...absolutely delicious.
