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!

    Overall a wonderful dining experience if you're looking for a tapas-style meal. The wait staff was friendly and knowledgeable. There were many great options on the menu so we appreciated the recommendations given. Our food came out quickly and all the tapas we tried were excellent.

    We sat inside, which is louder than outside (lots of hard surfaces). Delicious wine, drinks, food. Small wine and even smaller liquor list, but great tasting options, so it works. The interior could use some TLC. The banquette is too short for the tables it is paired with, and it was dirty and had food stuck in it. They should look at doing traditional bistro tables in there (small rectangular tables that can move around/be put together). The rounds are big for the space, and too high for the banquette (and my husband is 6’1). Inside could use lower lighting (most is good, but there is one super bright white light that overpowered us, blinding, really). The black lights with Edison bulbs are so much better with the space (and they hide more when the interior needs some love). Outside is cute. If it wasn’t so hot, we’d prefer outside. Totally worth it for food and drink. Intimate, neighborhood gem.

    understandably it’s an outdoor seating area but would be nice if they could do something about the ants. It was a bit rough to swipe them off the table all of brunch. Love the food however and love the option to sit outdoors - would help if the service was a little faster next time. We were at brunch for over two hours.

    The food was fantastic...it came out in waves and each dish was beautifully presented, fresh, hot food. My palate was having so much fun with the different spices and flavors of the dishes, it was too much fun! Baxter was a great server, very informative, professional easy to connect with. The other servers were great too, the bartender was attentive to the tables as well...the hostesses (Lars) were welcoming and the patio was nicely shaded. We had a bonus of being there while Tony Caputo's had their outside jazz band playing which was added pizazz! Thank you Finca!

    The food was amazing across the board. Service was prompt and friendly, although things did slow down when they got busy - but certainly still within acceptable range. The space was very welcoming, and the ambience was extremely relaxed. Will definitely eat there again on our next visit to SLC.

    I made a reservation for 4 for my family while we were visiting on a cross country road trip. I picked this restaurant after reading about Salt Lake City dining extensively. We don’t have a Spanish tapas restaurant at home, so we were very excited to show our children the experience and conviviality of this style of dining. We had a little trouble finding the restaurant as the facade is hidden by trees, but we made it, and were ready to enjoy a nice meal. The entrance leads directly into the courtyard dining. We were uncertain about where to go. After wandering around for a few minutes, an obviously irritated server let us know that the host stand was inside. No greeting, no guidance, basically just an annoyed demand to get out of the way. We found the unattended host stand inside and proceeded to wait for 10 minutes. The only staff present was a tableside server. I did not expect her to leave her table to seat us, but a smile or any form of recognition would have gone a long way. Finally, a young man walked out of the kitchen, clearly in front of the house attire. We thought for sure that he would help us. Not only did he also not greet or seat us, but he looked at us, and very purposefully went the opposite direction. At this point, we realized that this establishment is unprofessional and pretentious, and does not deserve to be included in an industry based on hospitality. I would not want the food that they serve with such poor guest service standards. We left.

    I had been to Finca once before this most recent visit, and all I can say is it was a wonderful dinner. I highly recommend just sticking with the tapas, as they are quite feeling and you get a variety of food. Penny was wonderful! If you get the opportunity to have her serve you, you will without a doubt have a great experience.

    I wanted a quiet Sunday dinner to relax with good food and ambiance to read a book, and I got just that! The staff were attentive and knowledgeable of the food and drink menu. I started with the patatas bravas and the ceviche. Both were delicious! The patatas bravas were crispy and came with a brava sauce and an aioli. The ceviche was a perfect blend of spice and citrus, I will definitely be ordering this every time I return! Then I got the steamed mussels and they were to die for. The sauce was delicious with white wine and chorizo bits, along with onion and tomatoes. My server offered another piece of grilled bread to dip into the sauce! The mussels were big and flavorful. And of course I got the churros to go, they are delicious and the perfect treat after a great dinner. I will be returning over and over again. The restaurant itself is adorable! I am excited to try the patio area in the future.

    Food - excellent. Sadly, no one came to get our drink order or food order for 30 minutes. We finally had to flag someone down. Once we did, the food was very quick to come out! But then when we were ready for the next round, same thing. Despite the staff tending to the tables next to us and despite being 1 of only 3 parties inside, we still had to ask to be tended to. That part wasn't super awesome. However, they were nice and the food was delicious. All in all a fine experience. We will go back because the setting/ambiance was so lovely - but hopeful that the service will be a bit different. We started with the Plato de Queso, the Jamon Serrano, one croqueta, a sparkling cava and a rosé. The Queso & jamon were perfection. The cava was good but we sent the rosé back because it was not pleasant. Next round ordered Ensalada Primavera, Gambas a la Plancha & Patatas Bravas. The best were the Patatas Bravas!! We were too full to get dessert but next time we will make room for the churros! Side note: the music was good (folky/sleepy) but it would have been even better to have something Spanish!

    It was clear that Finca is understaffed. Though I am empathetic, they need to adjust how many bookings they take. We were seated at 7:30 pm, and after 30 minutes wherein we never saw a server, we got up and left. This is why we rated them 1 star.
