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!

Service was very good and very friendly {we ate dinner early, 6:00). We tried some of the tapas and also the paella. The tapas was mixed, some very good and others average. The paella at best was average. Was hoping to find a great place, but food was only average.

The food was moderate at best. I was excited to try the restaurant given its ratings, more expensive dishes, and internationally-focused menu. But the food we were served barely resembled dishes from Spain and Morocco (many of the dishes on the menu are inspired by these two countries). What's more, we ordered 10 plates from the menu and my party agreed that only a couple of them were okay (One of those being the patatas bravas, which is essentially fried potatoes). Dishes such as the Spanish tortilla and the Moroccan vegetable tagine did not taste like or resemble anything respectively Spanish or Moroccan. The tortilla looked more like a mousaka or a potato lasagne, and the tagine was super watery with very little vegetables or seasoning (Basically only chickpeas with a few cauliflower florets and a couple of green beans). For the price you pay, I expected much better flavor and quality than what we experienced. But the wait staff was friendly and the ambiance was nice. I just personally will not be returning for the food.

Place to small. Tables to close to each other. It’s hard to have a conversation when you have other tables so close to you. The place is old and run down.
Had a reservation and still had to wait 20 minutes for a table. We were seated in a separated room outside the restaurant with room for 4 tables. Tiny bathrooms with no towels to dry hands with and dirty.
Food is not worth the money.
Servers are very polite and professional.
The food is no worth the trouble

Went out on a date last night and came here due ti a lot of recommendations. I’m so glad I did. The food was amazing. We had the ceviche, patatas bravas, lamb lollipops, brussel sprouts and the chicken thighs. Perfect portions and we finished everything. The wine was great as well. Justice was our server and she was amazing. The entire staff was friendly and attentive. My only complaints would be no waiting area and I was sitting by the window and I had a cold draft all during dinner, but not a huge deal. I will definitely be back.

Easy to make/ get a reservation for 7pm on a Friday - booked it Weds. we were a few min late but the graciously held the reservation- I did try to message the restaurant via this app that we would be late. Didn’t see confirm of receipt- that would be helpful. They were able to seat us with 5 min. Decent social distancing for such a small physical space. My date ordered a “not on the menu cocktail and they were able to make it and quickly👍. Food delivered fast. It was very good but not out of this world great. Solid value. Staff was very attentive but not overwhelming. Absolutely recommend.

Great food at a reasonable price. Service was a bit slow but completely understandable with the current world situation. My only complaint is that while it is quaint, the tables are Ewa close together. Like you can’t have a conversation without your neighbors being part of it. I realize they can’t really do anything about it with the current venue but just know you won’t have any privacy if you dine there.

We went here on New Year’s Eve not realizing they had a special menu and we were not able to pick our own food. Half the plates were just vegetables or another small dish. We had one cocktail each and the cost of food came out to over $250 with tip. We were basically committed since it was New Year’s Eve and we couldn’t go anywhere else but weren’t able to order anything else but the predetermined menu. Not a $250 meal by any stretch. Don’t go on a holiday, or call ahead and make sure it’s just a normal menu.

We attended their New Year's Eve dinner which had a fixed 4 course menu. We added the optional wine pairing. The food and wine were fabulous, and the small house setting was lovely. The service was excellent.

I've always enjoyed Finca and really like the space they're in. It had been a few years since I lasted visited. The recent experience was excellent. We loved the warm olives and almonds, brussel sprouts, calamari, chorizo tapas and the ceviche. We ordered paloma cocktails and they were wonderful. I highly recommend Finca for date night or a small group.

The food was great but the service was rushed. Food was brought out as it was ready without much consideration for pairing the tapas. It felt like they wanted tables to turn over quickly.

The space is dingy. The floors look dirty. I remember when the space was Fresco. It was warm, bright, and inviting. Now dark gray paint looks institutional, the floors haven’t been redone in 25 years, and the charm is gone.

The menu looked promising. The food turned out greasy. Most bedded on wilting arugula. The waitstaff was friendly and helpful, though looked like they just rolled out of the sack.

The prices are reasonable. The overall impression is a restaurant long past its prime. Might be best to invest serious effort in the establishment. Or cut the losses and move on.

We requested outdoor. They said they had heated outdoor dining. No table was ready, no fire, no heaters, wet tables. The host said “oh uh we are almost out of propane but I could try?”

We dined inside and we were really disappointed.

Everything was exactly what my wife and I needed to experience for date night. Friendly environment, incredible food and beverage menu, and the ambiance to boot. It took us out of Utah for an hour or so and placed us back into our travels abroad.

I was excited to try Finca out. I love how it is tucked away in a small building off the street. The outdoor dining area must be very nice in good weather, but it was too cold for that option when we went. The service was prompt and friendly. I had the paella. Sadly, it did not impress. It was dry and tasteless. Very disappointing.
