I love Finn's! I've been living in Victoria for almost a year and it is often my "go to" place when friends come to visit. The food is consistently excellent and the service is always good (everyone's very friendly).

Generally we enjoyed our meal at Finn's. I do have one complaint, but I frankly don't think you care. Your wine list is poor at best and expensive. The only wine that I could find that I knew I would like was the Sancerre. Very over priced. The rest of them were wines I would not take to a friends for dinner.
Everything else was good as the results of the survey would attest.

Early and flexible dinner hours was a great beginning. Then there were the flavourful prawn tacos, the excellently prepared cocktails by a very skilled bartender, the fresh and simply (in a good way) executed Steelhead with mashed potatoes (although a side vegetable would have made the dish perfect), and the prompt and friendly service. You exceeded our expectations, and can't wait to return.

Finn's is always an amazing experience, we visit them every time we are in Victoria and the food and the service never disappoints. This visit, we were celebrating our anniversary and they really went above and beyond to make us feel special and to provide us with a memorable experience. No need to try any other restaurants, Finn's is the only place to go!

Fish and chips delicious, fish tacos amazing. Seafood pasta was good but pasta salsa. Mentioned to server who was less than helpful, nothing done to correct! No manager came to speak to us or any discount offered on our bill.

The food was good. Would have like to see more west coast influence and more fish / seafood options. But was was available was very good. We enjoyed the oysters, and Tuna Nicoise salad very much. The Char main was very good as well.

Location is the draw. Food was average. Large piece of fish over fries on a small plate which soaked the fries with fish oil. Server Charlotte just went through the motions with little PR.

Service wasn’t the best… the server didn’t introduce herself and didn’t ask how we were doing. She didn’t seem too concerned with our group at all throughout the whole meal… she barely said thank you at the end. That being said, the hosts were both great. Very friendly and accommodating.

We had a great lunch. The staff were excellent. The only concern was that over against the wall at the far side of the restaraunt it was quite cold even though we were warmly dressed. Next time we would probably request a table away fro that wall. Do you have heat in that area?
We would definitely return. Thank you

Booked a reservation at 9:00 PM. Called to say we’d be 5 min late; they said no problem. They call back and sat the kitchen will be closing in 20 min. That’s not right.

And the restaurant does not have accessible bathrooms. AT ALL!

Unfortunately I don’t think we will be back. My chicken entree was good but not as good as the $29 price tag. My wife had a mixed seafood bowl ($32), the calamari was not edible they were so rubbery, prawns were also overcooked, the shellfish was cooked nicely. My wife ordered another cocktail halfway through her entree, after 20 mins she was finished her plate and the cocktail still had not arrived. For the price tag there are way better dining options in this city.

Finn's is one of our very favourite restaurants in Victoria. The ambience is lovely, the food amazing, and the service is always very good. And all wrapped up in a beautifully restored historic building.
