    Made a reservation for 14 people not knowing a couple of friends couldn’t get a sitter. Had them show up with a toddler and not being able to sit with us even though it was before 8pm and there were other children sitting in the bar until 8:30. I know there are rules and apologize for my sister getting a little heated but rules are rules. If they are in place for for one table it should be the same for all tables. Especially a toddler that can’t walk, talk, eat or drink on their own. We were asked 4 times if one of our tables could be eliminated (twice via phone before we even arrived and twice once we were there). If we had removed the table we would have had 2 people squished at another table trying to eat and if we had already told the server that we had more people coming even though they weren’t eating they still needed a seat to have a drink. I understand that it was busy but I had that table reserved for a week. Having live music was lovely and he was great. That’s the reason we decided to go there but it was so loud that we had to yell at our server and I felt very rude doing so. Food was excellent as always!

    Service was very slow. Food was not great. 1 person did not eat anything on their plate. Seemed to be related to staffing issues. Taking 20 minutes to get water is not acceptable. Chose for the variety of vegetarian food on menu and there was only a burger available.

    We go to Fionns almost every Friday or Saturday for supper. However, the past few months, the quality of the food seems to have dropped quite a bit. As well the pricing has gone up dramatically. Finally the customer service was always amazing but the last couple of visits we felt like unwanted guests. We’re thinking that having Fionns as our special weekly go to destination will have to change. Why do some restaurants start out awesome then seem to fall ?

    Had a reservation for 700 pm once the night before I got a email saying they canceled as they weren’t open that late I should not have been able to book at the time if they were closed earlier it made no sense.

    Booked a reservation for a Friday night date, got the confirmation email and the booking placed into my calendar to show up to the restaurant being closed for a private event. There was no attempt made to let me know that my table would not be available. No email phone call or message. A complete waste of time and money to make our way out to the restaurant to be turned away. Extremely disappointed in this result from that night as my girlfriend and I used to enjoy the restaurant.
