No social distancing as seen in all other restaurants I have been in recently . Our chairs were touching the chairs of those sat behind us - definitely not 6ft distance. Music was also very loud (unable to have a conversation with person sat across from us.)

Bring back your sticky toffee pudding or apple dessert. Having only 2 desserts with chocolate does not work for someone who cannot eat chocolate

Great food and at a reasonable price. Our server was excellent and did a great job! Would recommend to everyone! We did have a reservation so there was no waiting. I would recommend making a reservation! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I (female) walked in ahead of a group (3 males) and the hostess (female) addressed the group before me. Didn't even acknowledge me. So not feeling very welcome to start. The drinks came quickly. Our server was tableside quickly and drinks came very quickly. Awesome! Then we watched the kitchen staff make our food. Majority weren't wearing masks in the middle of a global pandemic. One was but then adjusted the mask by grabbing the front of the mask and continue working on food. The server made an effort to speak loudly due to the mask and all front of house staff were wearing masks which was great to see. I love the anesthetics of the restaurant, the brick and dim lighting is wonderful. The avocado bacon burger was so boring. No flavor, dry. Not enjoyable. We will not be returning due to kitchen staff not wearing masks.

Service was amateurish, food desperate. Appetizers arrived after a 30 minute wait, and then mains appeared seconds later. The result was rushed appetizers and cold mains. utensils, napkins, water etc. all required special requests. hamburger was cold, Cesar salt covered in raw cold bacon. Yuck, Server was made aware and shrugged. No apology or anything else.
Never again.

First time going. The service and atmosphere were awesome. Nachos were a huge disappointment - the chicken on the nachos tasted old and there was hardly any cheese on them. We didn’t tell our server because we already had a coupon for a free app. For $19 nachos you could do better.

Great except for the reservation system advised that we stay in our cars until called by the restaurant staff to enter. They did not call. I called 22 minutes after our reservation was scheduled and they advised they don’t call.

The excellent service is what made our night. Our server was so sweet and she went above and beyond for us. I wish I had to get her name! We had appetizers only but they were good. The honey garlic chicken bites were our favourite.

A big priority these days is safety precautions during pandemic. Fionn's was very good in this regard. The food was mediocre. The hamburger was overcooked, even crispy on the edges. Nothing juicy about it at all. My friend had fish tacos and was unimpressed with the fish as it was not much different than fish sticks. Everything else about the visit was fine. Our first visit so I wouldn't rule it out in the future if friends chose to go there, but I'm not in a hurry myself.

Fantastic fish tacos! My husband’s burger was made with a sauce that he asked them to not put on and our server immediately took it back and replaced it in no time at all. Very efficient!

Many selections not available in beer or appetizers. After several items requested were not available my husband ordered a burger and fries with gravy. The burger was charred and overcooked and the gravy was thick and congealed. Trying hard to support local businesses but this makes it tough to want to return.
