    Nice restaurant by the water. Depending on what you order, some entrees are small (tuna nicoise salad). fish and chips and burger was decent size. Not kid friendly so beware with 5 years and younger (lots of glassware and cutlery for little hands to get at!). They used to have kid menus but there are still a few options like pizza for kids.

    I visited Finn’s with my family. The main reason we chose to it is its location. It is located right on the bay. It was a beautiful night and we were fortunate enough to get a table downstairs outside right by the water. The food was good. The service and location were great.

    The service was great but the food was mediocre. We both had the fish (one steelhead trout, the other rockfish.) Both fish dishes were overcooked, small filets served with huge mound of overly salted potato or risotto and minuscule serving of vegetables. Noise level was okay but we were in a quieter side room. Would not go back.

    We had a fantastic experience at Finns. Fortunate for us it was a sunny evening, our table was on the lower level on the patio. The patio had heaters and there were blankets on our chairs if we needed them. We were very comfortable and had a gorgeous view of the water. Our waitress Gillian was very attentive and at one point another waitress even popped by to see if we needed anything. The food was delicious - our group ordered the salmon burger, the rock fish and the fish & chips. We will definitely visit again!

    Waitress spilled water on our menus, bumped her tray of food on our son's shoulder causing a glass to fall and break on the floor and never refilled our water glasses despite repeated requests. Also took way too long to take our order.

    Really appreciate the new seating area. We made reservations through OpenTable and had no problems at all. Our table was ready when we arrived, new seating area was very nice and the staff were very professional and friendly. Our food came quickly and it was delicious. This was the best experience in dining that I’ve ever had. Kudos to Finns and staff.

    Felt rushed over dinner. Plates removed as soon as we swallowed our last bite. One of our party was slower and savouring his meal. Three different people tried to take his plate away before he'd finished. We used our cutlery with appies and it was removed. Our main course was served well before we finally got our fresh cutlery. Does staffing shortage mean no training for those who work there?

    We had a great experience at Finn's. We sat at the bar and all enjoyed different fish dishes -- trout, tuna and rockfish. The sides were great, particularly the pesto risotto. And our bartender service was attentive, knowledgeable and fun. Highly recommended!
