    Our server was fantastic and very knowledgeable. The only downside, was the lack of afternoon window shades - the sun got very bright. They said they were installing shades within the next few weeks - so problem solved. We had a great meal, and will be back!

    They forgot our order for Finn’s fish and chips. After an hour wait and requesting when our order was coming it finally arrived. The fish was still doughy inside. Very disappointed as this is why we came to Finns seafood restaurant in Victoria. To make up for the poor experience the manager took off the price of the meal, but we would have rather just enjoyed a fully cooked fish.

    One of our party ordered the Poke bowl, when it came the bowl was to small so could not mix as all fell on the table, this bowl does not have any rice and although we were told only medium spicy it was very spicy. So the party could not eat to much no apology was offered. I recommend either learn how to make this bowl properly and in the correct size bowl or remove from the menu

    I would give our meals a 10, and I don’t usually do that. The seafood linguine and steak dinner were splendid as well as the mixed green salad with oranges and fennel. Would probably order it all again the next time!

    We have not dined at Finn's but we enjoyed our meals - steelhead and rockfish. Both were exceptional. I think what we liked the most was the warm welcome and friendliness of every person on the Finn's team. Very welcoming to us. We will be back and will take some time to enjoy a pint at the bar. Thanks Finn's!

    Brought out of town guests and I had asked for a table with by window. Ended up being put on lower deck of resto, open-air space with a bit of a view but for the rather high partitions / railing on the deck. A bit off putting and rather lacking in ambience. Food was good, not great. Lovely, pleasant server and other staff though. Overall, not sure we’ll hurry back.

    We wanted to sit on the patio downstairs, but while sitting we didn’t have a view. Next time we would sit upstairs, the view would be better. The food was good, but the portions were small.

    My wife had the chowder and clams apps, my daughter had the fish and chips, and I had the seafood linguine. They were all fantastic. Our server was very nice. We were seated on the patio harbour side and the view was stunning. They had blankets on each chair in case you got a bit chilly; also gas heaters. Overall, a very nice experience.

    We have friends that came from oversees which we wanted them to experience the best of your restaurant but that didn't happen due to many lacking things, food and ect. Broken smoker, shortage of staff, drinks were delayed and goes on and on.

    We love this restaurant! The food is always outstanding, the service is phenomenal, and the ambience is perfect. The only issue I had on this visit was that the kitchen ran out of fish and chips. It’s a seafood restaurant for goodness sake! There were other unavailable items as well but to run out of fish and chips is not good!
