    Everything about this place is spot on…. Fresh sushi and great service. I recommend pairing some of your dishes with Larsen. The bread from 6100 is local and fresh… the butter is perfection. Kumiko is an excellent waitress.

    I was there on other couple occasions and it was just great. From food to drinks to service. But this time I was surprised to find out that the food was not fresh, avocado in the rolls was old with dark spots. I invited friends and did not want to make a scene. I just scraped it on the side. May be there is a change in chief, I would be embarrassed to serve food like that to my guests. I do not think I will return.:(

    Food was average at best, small portions and way over priced. There was almost no rice in their sushi, I bet on purpose to make you order more. I dropped over $100 for just my wife and I but was still hungry so I had to fix myself something more at home. Service was slow and disappointed they didn’t offer a small birthday dessert for my wife like an adjacent table received. View of the ocean is really nice and the only thing positive.

    We booked a last minute reservation at FIN and what a treat it was ! The smoked salmon sushi I had was phenomenal! I’m already craving it. My boys had 2 sushi rolls that they absolutely loved. Reasonable priced white wine which I appreciated. The service was excellent and the ocean view is very lovely. We will be back on our next trip to Laguna Beach!

    This restaurant was next door to the art gallery event we were attending, and we thought it would be a great place to grab a bite prior. It was disappointing, sadly. First off, prices are high. Think $15 for a glass of beer or $10 for basically an ounce of sake. Food was priced high, as well. Some items were good, others just okay. I had the poke bowl and cucumber salad...just okay. I will say the edemame with chili, lime, garlic was really good. Service on the other hand...was very frustrating. First, they were out of two of the three beers on the menu. I ordered Nigori sake, but received regular sake. Next, I requested no seaweed on the Poke, but it came with it. They got our bill incorrect three times. Geez! We felt like we had the training staff. They were nice, but what a cluster f@#k!!! The view was lovely, but overall experience was such a negative, that we won't be back.

    Fin sushi and sake is amazing! Love it. We keep coming back!! HOWEVER, do not use the valet parking outside the hotel in the adjacent parking lot. We’ve been to this restaurant 10 times and all 10 times the valet has ripped us off. Super dishonest and sketchy. Watch out for them.

    Incredible view and ambience! Delicious and fresh, although very small plates. Blistered edamame was so fantastic as was the black cod. We waited almost an hour to receive our first dish (our table shared 5 dishes), and then 30 minutes between the rest. Because each plate was so tiny, we each got one or two bites before the plate was gone and then had to wait another 30 minutes until we got more food. It just felt like we were hungry all night! Would have enjoyed all the food so much more if it was coursed out better or if our waiter had warned us that the plates were not meant for sharing between 4 people.

    Awful experience. Arrived 10 minutes early to my lunch reservation at noon and was told that no one was there yet but could be seated anyway since it shares it's space with another restaurant in the hotel. Next was was frustrated to be given limited options on seating and told I couldn't have the outdoor seat with shade because it was a 4-top. Sure enough, as we sat there waiting for the restaurant to open, the seat two people right in the same spot we were denied. Ugh. Then the sushi chefs come waltzing in, after we had been there 10-15 minutes, in no rush whatsoever to get to work. Finally place our order off of a limited 7 or 8 roll menu where they inflexible on options. Food arrives. Edamame is not steamed, rather charred which means greasy odd tasing. Have to request soy sauce, so we get to stare at our sushi a little longer. They bring out one setting. Great. Soy sauce is there home brew, tasting sweet like teriyaki, so sashimi and everything was tainted with that and went uneaten. Did they notice all our food was intact when we requested the bill? Of course not. Dying to just get out of there, we paid for the overpriced meal and left very disappointed.

    On my inaugural visit to Fin Sushi, accompanied by an old high school chum, we found ourselves perched precariously on the restaurant's edge, treated to an unparalleled panorama of Laguna Beach - quite the riveting rendezvous with Mother Nature. The sushi menu, albeit somewhat sparse, was like a mini Hollywood - no extras, only stars. Each dish was a delectable testament to quality over quantity. In essence, Fin Sushi is your go-to spot for stellar sushi and jaw-dropping views. Just remember to keep an eye on your footing - the vista is truly distracting!

    Food was great. Service was good but not very friendly. We were celebrating our anniversary & wanted to watch the sunset, so we requested a window table ahead of time, twice & got sat 30 minutes late in a corner just to see a window seat open 15 minutes after sitting. So that was disappointing.

    Not a real restaurant! A "companion kitchen" to Larsen's, the main dining option for Hotel Laguna. We arrived for our 1230 Sunday afternoon reservation, noting according to THEIR WEBSITE AND THE HOSTESS STAND that they opened at NOON. We sat for 15 minutes with no one ever coming by. Went back to the hostess to ask if we were being played or if they were open, she assured me they were open! A waiter from Larsen's finally came by, took our drink order, and then returned 5 minutes later to say that FIN would not be opening today, and he moved us to the main dining area. About 15 minutes later we had our drink order, and had ordered food, and the food came out quickly after. However than the new waiter completely disappaered as well. Didnt see him for OVER THIRTY MINUTES and we'd had enough by that point and just left. I would say dont go anywhere near Hotel Laguna. And I am not sure any place in the area is worth the traffic and parking hassle that Laguna Beach is known for.

    Our first time at Fin Sushi and Sake and we were all very impressed! This is gourmet sushi! Smaller portions, but full of flavor!! Each item we tried was simply delectable! We also tried the new Mai Tais, which were a bit unusual but full of flavors and delicious enough, we ordered a second round! Highly recommend this restaurant within the Hotel Larsen.

    Restaurant was closed and no one offered to make it up to us so we punted and had to eat at the other restaurant where we froze with the outside door open and food was pricey but mediocre. Best part was entirely the view…
