    Had Steelhead Salmon - very good. Potato and yam Pavé was excellent. I didn't care for the char on the broccolini. Husband really enjoyed the Garden Vegetable Bowl (with Red Thai Curry sauce). It looked and smelled amazing. Monte Christo coffee was excellent. Great staff. Friendly and knowledgable.

    The food was great. Very central location. The service was amazing. The food was a little late. They informed us and got us a free salad and a free dessert for our anniversary. Everything was great. I usually complain most of the time but this time there was nothing to complain about. Thank you.

    For the price I was disappointed by the food. While it was good, my expectations were a little higher. Presentation was great. The flavour just wasn’t quite there. I had the sablefish. Dessert was good but again for the price my expectations were higher. For four, one appy, four entrees (two with additions), two drinks each, four desserts the total was $375.00. The service was great. Good staff. Eli went out of his way and had the bartender make us special request cocktails. Kudos!

    The layout and location of the restaurant is great, good ambiance and great view of the water. The service was excellent, very attentive. The food was, well meh. Not bad, not great. Just mediocre. Go for the location and the view, but don’t expect to be impressed from a culinary POV.

    We had the seafood linguine and fish & chips. Both were delicious! Haven't had a good fish & chips in a long time and they nailed it! Both meals were generous portions and their presentation was beautiful. We finish the meal with a chocolate ganache. It was scrumptious. Our server was wonderful and the noise level was just right. I can't wait to visit in the good weather. I highly recommend this restaurant.

    We have only been to Finn's once before. The food was excellent, but it was downtown, which made parking a bit of a hassle. We arrived early for our reservation, but they seated us immediately. I ordered mussels steamed in a cream sauce with white wine, garlic and parmesan (?) as an appy, while my husband got the hummus and pita, which we shared with each other. The mussels were just amazingly delicious. For our main course, my husband ordered the pan-fried sablefish and for me - already on a seafood high, it was the seafood linguini with - you guessed it - more steamed mussels with the addition of clams and prawns. Spectacular! My husband loved the sablefish, too. The service was great. Bravo to Finn's! We'll definitely be back.

    Visiting from out of town. Enjoyed the evening. Food was delicious. Liam our server was excellent. He knew the menu well and was very pleasant and efficient . Unfortunately a mouse decided it was a nice place too. I understand that the restaurant does all it can to encourage critters to stay outside.

    The parmesan fries are delicious!!! This was the first place I have ever been in that gives you a little ice bucket for your white wine! They don't pour your 9 oz glass all at once. We had a delicious salad ....after the fries...LOL... great service, ambience and noise level was just perfect. For older folks the very noisy places are hard to deal with and not very pleasant. We'd recommend Finn's!
