Outstanding food is always the norm at Fin Raw Bar - Summit! The chef is so creative that there are so many things I want to try, we end up ordering numerous things every time! The specials are delicious and creative every time. So cozy and love their new outdoor space.

We were passing through town while traveling and stopped here for dinner. Started with apps - the wood charred Octopus, which was perfectly done, tasty and so tender. The accompanying panzella salad was a treat as well. Also had the BLT wedge that was also delicious. Then came the entrees...Atlantic Swordfish and Swordfish Tacos. Both were excellent, very tasty and perfectly cooked. Add in friendly and outstanding service, and we could not help but wish this restaurant was located much closer to us than the 100 miles from our home.

When we asked the server about the appetisers - specifically the swordfish tacos, she said that although people order them, she often hears there is. no taste, so we ordered the lobster sliders, which were quite delicious. We then ordered the salmon and the swordfish special as entrees. I asked for the salmon medium rare and it arrived raw over a bed of what was supposed to be fried rice in a teriyaki sauce? Tasted like it was a generic fried rice doused in bottled sauce. The swordfish was rather thin and very dry (overcooked) with little flavour. this place has great potential, just needs a little consulting help in the kitchen. It's in a great location, and has great atmosphere, but it is a lot of money to pay for food that I can cook better at home.

Excellent food. Seafood variety is extensive. Preparation was superb.

Service was great, yet slow. Need more staff to work the extensive outside seating. We look forward to returning for another great dinner.

Overall, a great experience. I love that it’s a BYOB. Our server, Gabby, was outstanding. She was extremely professional, friendly, helpful and attentive and made some great recommendations. The food was excellent. We started with the sushi roll and bang bang cauliflower, both highly recommended by Gabby. For my entree, I had the scallop special which was served with an extremely tasty crabmeat-corn salsa and sautéed spinach. My wife had the pacific cod with bok choy in a miso broth. We also ordered a side - the Thai shrimp fried rice served in a hollowed out pineapple. We split the creme brûlée for dessert. Everything was absolutely delicious and the portions were substantial. We brought home leftovers of everything except the dessert. If you want fresh, innovative cuisine I highly recommend Fin. And if you’re lucky enough to have Gabby as your server, you’ll enjoy it even more.

Took a friend for lunch to celebrate her birthday. The host/waiter was in a terrible mood!
When I placed my reservation, I had requested a nicely located table as it was a special occasion. Even though the restaurant was nearly empty, we were seated by the noisy kitchen chopping area. I asked the host if we could move to a open table near the window. He responded that there was already a reservation for that specific table so we could not. However, the window table and all of the tables in that area remained empty the entire time we were there. The food is lovely at Fin Raw Bar but I really don’t appreciate being treated this way particularly when celebrating a birthday.

sitting outside was out first mistake, but we thought with the heater it would help. Nope the heaters are pointless cause they dont do anything and then our main dishes took way too long.

My fiancé, Mike, and I dined at Fin last night for his 32 birthday. We had not been out to a restaurant in almost a full year--and I'm so happy we chose this spot for our first night out. The person who greeted us at the door was warm and personable, and it was very clear that the restaurant was taking measures to keep everyone safe/keep everything clean. The waitstaff were efficient, polite and knowledgeable. Also, the owner (I think it was the owner?) was helping his staff and speaking with several of the diners (from a safe distance) about their experience. He even stopped by to let me and my fiancé in on the restaurant's amazing escarole & bean recipe (I know it sounds like a simple side dish, but WOW - so delicious!).

Finally, the food was spot on. The oysters were fresh and sweet; the octopus was cooked PERFECTLY (not an easy feat!), and the branzino was perfect. I would give this place 10 stars if I could. Thank you so much to everyone at Fin for making my fiancé's birthday (and our first night out in a LONG time) absolutely wonderful!

Came on a Wednesday evening for our Anniversary dinner. Our server was charming and food was delicious. We had mainly appetizers and one entree, which our server generously offered to have coursed out for us. Excellent overall. Even had a speedy delivery for Wine available when we realized we had forgotten our wine at home. Will return soon.

I want to love this place; the menu sounds great, but the execution is just a little off. Scallop special - they were slightly undercooked and not enough sear; pacific cod - fish was great but noodles that came with it were overcooked. Entrees that come with the escarole and beans - that side dish is just so gloppy. Potato sticks side dish - what is the point, please get rid of these and provide either regular potatoes or french fries. Seafood Spring rolls - used to be my favorite, but they appear to have more vegetables and less seafood in them now. The spicy mustard that went with it used to have a nice kick and now it's less spicy and more honey tasting. Such a shame because the place has promise. Ambience is nice; service is good.

Server was not personable or helpful. Food was meh. Ambiance was very bland. The noise from the kitchen was more than the music. Food was ok. I asked if the octopus came warm, it was room temp. I asked what came with it, she said a salad with no explanation. It was a salad, but a wet salad that I was not picturing because my expectations were not set. She kept asking if we wanted more time, but did not ask if there were any questions on items. Every time we asked a question she would say “that’s good” no detail, no examples, etc. We felt rushed and we were the only ones eating there until about 6:45 when another group came in.
I never write about my experience. I will not be coming back to Fin.

Had a wonderful lunch to celebrate my daughter’s 28 th birthday. Everything was delicious. We split the shrimp taco appetizer. There were three- perfect. We both ordered the lobster sliders just because we love that sort of thing so much snd haven’t had in a while - so good. We passed on the dessert because were pretty full . Oh - I forgot to mention that they gave us a complimentary order of French fries with 2 dipping sauces. To die for. I didn’t want to pass up the soup of the day though / my favorite- NE Clam chowder so I ordered a To-go on that and had for dinner. I was NOT disappointed. One of the best I ever had - and this after reheating! Very happy with Fin. Will be back!
