    Wonderful views on the outdoor patio area and delicious food. There was a glitch with the servers and we were caught in a void with no service for our table. I asked a server passing by to locate our server and she jumped in and took our drink orders while she searched for our server. Unfortunately our server left early, but great for us…the wonderful female server, who took our drink order, took over our table. Really above and beyond service from server and her dedication in making our Laguna Beach visit at Finn restaurant an amazing experience! Thank you!

    Beautiful views. Managers was amazing. Flavor was delicious. I little pricy for what you get. Server could have been more attentive by bringing dishes at the same time and extra ginger wasabi without constantly asking.

    What a great evening! I made reservations apparently for inside but we wanted to sit outside and watch the sunset. Our waitress was so accommodating and wonderful! She had outdoor comfy chairs set up for us with little tables for our drinks and small plates. Sushi menu is very small but very fresh and delicious. The service staff was so attentive. The views are amazing and to watch the sunset was spectacular!

    Lovely sunset view, good wine and sake list - but $15 for two tablespoons of middling sake? Not worth it. Sushi expensive, too, though it was good and fresh, with interesting sauces. I loved the old Hotel Laguna and wanted to like this restaurant, but not sure I’ll return. Laguna has plenty of other good sushi bars.

    If you are looking for a sushi dining experience, this is not the place. The sushi options are extremely limited. The sushi pieces are the tiniest I have ever been served. The sushi is laid on a ponzu or soy sauce, depending on the fish requested. This is another anomaly to the experience. However, the ocean views are spectacular.

    This was about our fifth visit to FIN SUSHI & SAKE. The Sushi Chef, Chris, prepares and serves traditional sushi, which I prefer. The staff is very accommodating; there's this West Coast tradition that sushi comes in two piece size and sushi in four piece size; they accommodated my wish for 2-piece sashimi, without an issue. The fish is fresh and the presentation is straight forward and 'clean'. The views out the window of Main Beach and the Ocean, was a treat, as always.

    We chose this restaurant as we were visiting the area and read great reviews. We were fooled by the image shown in Open Table that looks like beautiful outdoor seating. This restaurant is all indoors. So disappointing. We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary and our that in our Open Table reservation and there was no acknowledgement of it at all. Overall sushi was tasty but not the experience we were hoping for.

    We live down the street and was curious on the sushi offering as we have a few places in Laguna Beach. My husband and I eat sushi quite a bit. The ambiance is obviously excellent as it is located in the hotel. We were warned that certain items may be slower because of the separation of the kitchen. So we ordered all our drinks and our appetizers, entrees and sushi at one time. Sake came after most of our sushi was out; is was mildly annoying for me as we like to enjoy and sip on sake throughout the experience. Second thing was the limited menu. There was a decent offering of sushi but the two fish I liked most — mackerel and uni were out that day. And most sushi restaurants have tamago— which is a classic (if made right) but it is not an offering on this menu. I didn’t even see a seaweed salad…. Which again is another basic. But then again. Maybe that was intentional? To create a limited menu to seem more boutique ? I was impressed with the edamame — of all things! The sushi we got were fresh. I would come back again but for those who expects a huge variety— this ain’t it. I would Say it is a nice date place or for people who are not into big volumes. Probably not a place for family with kids…

    Had never eaten here before, but I wanted Sushi and discovered this restaurant on-line. Made reservation and arrived at the Laguna Hotel where the restaurant is located and was quite surprised by its vibrancy, on the beach, great food choices and specialty cocktails! It was quite the people watching place with all the beautiful people. The wait staff was amazing, very helpful in suggestions and eager to please. I highly recommend and I want to come back as soon as I can. Enjoy! (P.S. The hotel is closed for total remodeling, but can't wait for it to open and stay a weekend!)

    Food was delicious however service was very slow. It took a while for a server to even greet us and get waters. Then it took 30mins for drinks to come out and an hour for our appetizer. Luckily we weren’t in a rush to go anywhere but it turned into an unexpectedly long dinner due to the service and food taking so long. We were celebrating a friends birthday and the server didn’t even ask if we wanted a desert or offered. In no way did it feel like the special occasion. I will say the sushi tasted fresh!

    I’m coming to the hotel Laguna not for the first time. Each time I love this place but yesterday something went wrong. First of all the valet guys are so rude. For the moment I thought that I came maybe to their house. In the end of our lunch I validate my ticket but they still charge me $15, we have been there for 1.20 hour. I understood that they fool me after I get home. Terrible. I was celebrating Mother’s Day with my daughter. then the waitress charged me twice for 1 a dessert. .. what can I say. Thank you for service people.

    The sushi was prepared well, but the fish was nowhere near fresh. The menu is very limited and pricey for the lack of quality. The service was very good. The location is terrific, but the Hotel needs a massive amount of fixing up.

    Does horrible count as an experience? Has anyone at this establishment been trained in service excellence? Maybe even customer service. Sat at a table, well dressed, etc and waited THIRTY SEVEN minutes before someone casually walks by and asks if I’m ‘done’. Ordered drinks, apps, entrees etc and the food was cold. The order incorrect. Fries cold and soggy, lettuce limp, horrible.

    The place is fantastic. I am going to go as far as to say that Fin has the best sushi in southern California. The sushi chef Chris Pak is amazing. The fish is fresh. Everything he prepared for us was delicious. This is our second time eating here and frankly I expect to comeback at least once a week. A must try sushi spot. 7 stars.
