Surfaite comme endroit. C’est plus une ambiance de brasserie que d’un restaurant.
Servie « garoché ».

We went to Finns for my boyfriends birthday and it was our very first time dining there and we LOVED IT!! He wouldn’t stop telling all of his friends and family about how amazing the food was and the overall experience. Thank you so much!

Dined here on Sep 6 - the restaurant was busy but the service was great. We both really enjoyed our mains. I tend to watch dishes being delivered to the table and definitely saw many options I would love to come back and try.

Lovely seaside patio and indoor ambiance. The service was super quick and our meal came before we had even finished a third of our drinks. The linguini was tasty and I would go back for it again. The social distancing felt safe while inside and there is some room to wait outdoors for a table.

Our waitress Katie was too busy watching the hot rod cars drive up wharf street. We had to clear our own plates in order to accommodate plates for the next course because Katie was busy chatting to someone. Our food was cold. I’ve been to Finns a lot and after this I probably won’t go back.

Finn’s never disappoints. Managing to draw Hailey as your server is the best thing that could happen to you.

Ugh what a disappointment - I had the Rockfish which our server told us was at a lower end of halibut!! Lousy inside table - food was mediocre at best - stay clear - this is not fine dining. Think tourist trap.

We live close by but because we had read a few mediocre reviews in the past we have always skipped this place but it was a mistake to have walked by. We booked a table on-line according to the COVID protocol. We did not get a water view table but we got an inside table where we could see the beautiful parliament buildings. We felt the protocols were safe with good distancing from other tables even though the place was bustling alive with so many guests ... the place is huge yet homey with many nooks and crannies which we could never tell by just walking past the restaurant. The food was among the best we have ever eaten, anywhere. Maybe because my wife had seafood (Steelhead) and I had chops ... the specialties of the place. We will cone back for sure!

We totally enjoyed our lunch at Finn’s. The service was great and the food was delicious...we had the fish & chips and shrimp tacos & chips. Both were excellent. We will definitely be returning!😋

The food was fantastic. However, don’t recommend window seats. Without curtains on, the sun directly got us so bad. Could’ve been better if we had changed the seats when we talked about this issue with the server.

This place is the best seafood place in downtown Victoria.
We will definitely recommend friends to visit.

Great place for seafood! Went for lunch and enjoyed one of the best authentic fish and chips I’ve had. Large piece of haddock and the best crispy fries. Reminded me of the fish/chips I had at Brighten Beach UK. Will definitely be returning on my next visit to Victoria.

Started with Oysters which were perfect. Couldn't decide on fish or lobster as the main and asked for garlic bread while I decided.

Was told they did not have garlic bread. Had to order an appetizer instead which filled me up....and no room for fish or lobster!

To my surprise the table next to me were served with garlic bread!!

Outdoor patio or seating inside; both seatings perfect! The famous prawn tacos, triple strength martini, BC famous Riesling with delicious chocolate ganache made a memorable evening experience. Easy lounge music selections were much liked. The server was helpful and knowledgeable. Our favorite casual in Victoria.

Manager decided it was a good time to clean windows, right next to where we were seated. All servers were not wearing masks- on and off. Had a better experience when I was here last time.

Our server Emma was beyond amazing! Her warm and friendly, yet not intrusive attitude made us feel so comfortable being there. We were one of the last tables since we had a late reservation but she never made us feel rushed. Food was spectacular and view and ambiance was perfect. If there's one tiny thing to comment on - it was that we wish the Chowder would've been hotter (temperature wise), but honestly it wasn't a big deal. Thanks for making our anniversary dinner so special! We will definitely come back!

Chips had far too much salt on them and were slightly dry. Batter was slightly too oily.
