Dinner was great. I had the Baja Enchiladas which were delicious by the way. Things were quiet, as to be expected, but service was great.

What a gem! I loved the vibe, the food, the service, everything really. Very interesting menu, unlike anything else I've seen in Idaho Falls. Would definitely return, and recommend to others.

Excellent service! Very clean. Food was good with one exception - our ribeye steak (ordered medium rare) was served raw with a very quick sear. We sent it back and it was returned to us cooked to perfection!!Our sushi rolls (Vegas and Platinum) were superb!
That will be a regular stop during my travels.

We scheduled a table for 8 Men. We were sat at a U shaped elevated table that was difficult to get into and cramped for 7 full sized men. We had 1 person that was a no show or else we would have had to have been re seated. Everything else was fine but the seating was not good, and the waitress was barely able to see over the table. She did an awesome job however and we all helped pass the drinks around.

Everything was incredible food, drink, and ambiance wise. Our server was lacking but chalked it up to being overwhelmed since it was Valentine’s Day.

We enjoyed our Valentines dinner at Smokin Fins even though is was busy out wait staff was pretty fast with our order. The noise level was quite loud not sure if it’s always like that cause it was our first time there. Our meal was good our appetizer of Brussel sprouts was the best part of our dinner. We both ordered fish it was good not the best meal I have tasted but good! It was quite expensive for the portion size so just beware of that. Overall a great meal I will probably go there again for a special occasion!

The food was delicious. Service was excellent. Tegan and Dev made our drinks and they were some of the best old-fashioneds we’ve had. They were both very nice and attentive. Even though the restaurant was extra busy that night they took time to make us feel welcome and crack some jokes with us. We had a good evening there.

Whitney provided us great service. However the food left a lot to be desired especially for the price. My friend rice was burnt and my wife's mac and cheese was really watery. The overuse of the atomic sauce totally overpowered the flavor of the ahi and even the lobster stuffed avacado. The noise level was really high but the decor was awesome.

Reservation was at 6pm and didn't get water or even see a server until 6:20. Food was ok but not worth the price.

Food was very average. The mahi mahi tacos had way too much cilantro; it was barely edible!

Smokin' Fin presents itself as rather pretentious with a unique, interesting menu; unfortunately, the food falls short.

Finally, the its credit card link was down when we were ready leave, and we had to wait at least ten minutes ti pay our check. If you're going to run an upscale restaurant, you better ensure that all your systems are in order.

Prompt, attentive, nonintrusive, unpretentious service. Service was perfect! Great food, good variety for different tastes, even for those who don't like seafood. Portions are appropriate, not huge, not small. The place was super busy, food still came out quickly. The hardest thing for everyone to get right is a medium rare steak, especially in a rib eye or fillet cut. The rib eye I had was still squishy, translucent, shiny and rare on the inside, outside perfectly seared and seasoned. I usually order rib eyes medium when I go out, because it is seldom that a restaurant will deliver one true medium rare, which is warm, red, juicy and opaque, not translucent, shinny and wobbly. I had high hopes though so I went for it. Oh well nothing new. Just order your rib eye medium if you don't want it rare. All the fish was perfect, nothing overdone!

The food was fantastic. Their tartar sauce is amazing. We got everything very quickly, though the server kept forgetting things, like our utensils, some sides, and drink refills. It was also very noisy, but it was very busy so it didn’t bother me. Overall, I really enjoyed the experience.

Good food and great ambiance. Service was great from the waitress and kitchen. Bar service was weak, wrong drink, and then 2nd beverage came after the meal was finished, 20 minutes after ordering.

We normally love this place, so we took 4 of our friends out for them to try it for the first time. The food was good and a great environment. The service wasn’t great. Long delays between checking on us, and I ordered chicken and got fish, so my food came late. The server whispered “sorry”, but didn’t offer to discount the meal or give a free desert or something. ... kinda lame.
Our friends liked the food , but weren’t impressed overall. I told them we need to go back and try again, because normally everything is top notch.

Gone in on a sunday expecting fast service since Idaho Falls is somewhat low speed that day. We had seven people in our group. We were seated quickly great! Unfortunately that was the almost best thing. Our waiter took forever to get our waters and drink order, the music was horrific I really don't care for loud music if it's Frank Sinatra or something matching the restaurant ambience. We finally ordered no indication of specials for food or drinks. One of our guest ordered the fish tacos they were WAY over cooked the tortillas were hard, The Noodles bowl was more broth than anything. The Suchi was rolled like it was dropped and placed back on the plate. The waiter only checked on us one time, I was wondering what kind of cooks are working today(hungover ones? ) if it's the pay, give them more money. If your food sucks that's a big problem and the wait staff looked like zombies walking around not giving a darn. I was very disappointed this was my second time to this establishment and the worst. I'm not sure I'll be back, maybe by myself at the top bar.. it was very disappointing.

This was our first visit and we were less than impressed. Our friends who had been before raves about the fish tacos but when they got to the table the tortilla crumbled and everything was too salty. We saw a number of plates go back to the kitchen and when I received my crab leg plate I was less than impressed with the lack of flavor. The manager came by to see how our visit was. We expressed our disappointment and he simply apologized and left. I was unimpressed.

The food was good. With platters I’d expect in larger cities vs what’s typically available in idaho falls. The waiter was prompt but not overly eager to get our orders. The prices were fair and what I’d expect. Overall it was a solid experience. We will definitely be going again.
