You'll find us tucked in between two buildings - The King's English Bookshop on the North and Mazza Cafe on the South - down a little sidewalk bordered with bushes.
You'll see our rustic sign peeking out from under the ivy that surrounds the entrance to the patio. In the warmer months we have our hostess stand at the end of the sidewalk by our patio and in the colder months we have our hostess stand inside the little building, just off the patio. Our entire space is small, off-the-beaten path, and a bit hard to find, but we sure love it. The building holds our cozy dining room with shades of warm gray and original pane glass windows along one wall, and the patio is a tiny oasis of green plants and ivy in the warmer months. Don't be shy, just walk up and say hello!

Lovely atmosphere and great service. We ordered 5 dishes and all were delicious (the texture on the chicken tagine was a bit mushy...our only complaint).

Loved the ambiance. Service was okay, but food tasted like it was smothered in salt. Even my salad was super salty

This is one of the best restaurants I have been in SLC. You get for what you paid, quality, taste and great ambience.

The best tapas I ever had!

My husband and I wanted to enjoy the last of the Indian summer on a pleasant restaurant patio, and Finca turned out to be perfect! With our table nestled under a quaint ivy covered canopy, it was like dining in a vineyard. We were spaced well from the other tables, which filled up, even on a Monday evening. Our two tapas of a citrus greens and sardine with avocado were both delicious, as was the lamb burger. The paella looked fabulous and well stocked with seafood morsels, but my husband commented that it could have been more flavorful. We will definitely return, and sample more of the varied offerings.

Very good food.
I found it odd Sangria was an "off menu" item.
Ambiance was nice. Our waitress was a bit absent - but over all, we were very happy with everything.

We love it there. This night there seemed to be not enough staff. The servers were great. They were just too busy to take the time to talk. I could tell there was some strain in the kitchen from the shortages of glassware and utensils. Again, the servers did great under trying circumstances. Nobody was complaining, just apologizing for little things. Very professional. The food did not appear to suffer at all. But it was obvious that one or two people were missing somewhere, based on the more relaxed experiences we've had in the past. I expect it was just a rough night when people called in sick. We'll be back fo sho!

I was so excited about trying Finca now that it reopened but my experience was really not good. The food was very inconsistent (scallops great but the beet salad was one of the worst I have ever had) and there was no thought into spacing out the things we ordered tapas style so everything arrived at the table at once. The wait staff was not knowledgeable about the wine and seemed generally disinterested in making our experience enjoyable. I wish it was better food and service because the location is great.

4 people, patio, 7 pm Tuesday evening. Want this to be great, but fell flat on our visit.
1. Calamari was covered in chipotle...and rubbery. Meh.
2. Chicken over chickpeas - forgot mint perhaps? Chickpeas way undercooked, weirdly dry chicken.
3. Sardine bread should have been cut into portions. It was impossible to share without a huge mess.
4. Crudo was Not fresh, tasted off.

So thrilled that Finca has reopened, and it’s new location is absolutely adorable - the ambiance and the food are a perfect match. The outside patio is amazing and a great option if you are still uncomfortable dining indoors. Service, food, and drinks were all just so wonderful. We were beyond happy with the whole experience.

Absolutely a wonderful experience. Food was simply fantastic, we felt like we were back in Spain. Great wine list and everything well priced. Service was perfect and space is very nice. Don’t miss out on the fried olives and the croquetas.

Ww will return again and again next time we are in SLC. Bravo! You guys to rock.

There was 5 of us. The paella was ok, and then we had some tapas, I remembered trying the costillas, and it was really dry and it didn’t taste good. The ambiance and location was really nice but the food not so good.

The menu/name change was a great step up for this restaurant. The tapas menu from the old Finca is still very good and works well in this charming little space. The outdoor patio is great for COVID dining and the staff was well trained in safe dining practices.

Great variety of Spanish and Basque dishes. Also a lot of Spanish and Basque wines and even a couple Basque ciders. The patio is shady and cool. The place has only been open a few months and this was my fouirth time tehre. It's my ne go-to on the east side.

Finca has a nice little patio set up for outdoor dining....food was just amazing!! I could eat that citrus salad every day and not grow tired of it. My advice, get a few of the small plates and just share a main course...we had too much food. The fideo did reheat well the next day for lunch, so it worked out wonderfully!
