    The best pork chops I have ever had. Usually, pork very dense, potentially dry. But THIS was totally different. The most tender and moist I have ever had. It was more tender and moist than my husband's chicken!! Then we had the Panna cotta for dessert. Another HIT!! We will go back there AGAIN, for sure and have the same thing. All the staff and wait staff were so pleasant and helpful. Recommend it HIGHLY!

    The restaurant was full and busy, but staff and our reserved table were ready and waiting when we walked in. Table service was immediate, organized, and cheerful. We ordered our meals and sat back for what we thought would be a lengthy wait. Our plates were delivered surprisingly quickly, and we devoured the food; it was delicious. No complaints, but just two wee notes: with the dim lighting, it was a challenge to the menu; and the noise level occasionally made conversation difficult. It definitely will not stop us from plans to return soon for another wonderful meal. Thank you!

    Finn’s continues to be one of our favourite spots to dine in Victoria. The food is phenomenal. The seafood linguine and the rockfish risotto are so delicious and you can’t go wrong with anything on their menu. The staff are so friendly and provide guests with an amazing experience. As someone with a nut allergy, I love dining at Finns as they are nut free and I know I am safe no matter what I eat which is an incredible feeling that no other restaurant provides. You won’t be disappointed and I can’t recommend Finn’s enough. Counting down until our next visit!

    The service and atmosphere is always great, and I have been to Finns many times….unfortunately my seafood linguine was not fresh, the mussels tasted very off along with the clams… And I decided to not finish my meal, my friends Nicoise Salad was an unbelievably small portion for the price of $24. My linguine and one martini was $56 total without the tip, very very shocking prices now and with the off season upon us in Victoria I think we will venture elsewhere for the time being.

    Waiter was very good, hostesses, several of t hem seemed consumed with how to seat a table of 6 with a wheelchair, I waited to check in, a couple walked in behind me and were waiting patiently as well. When the hosts/hostesses had a moment, they overlooked me and went to straight to the customers who had walked in behind me. I did eventually check in and then they took me to a table that wasn't supposed to be assigned/might have been reserved already. so, I waited by the bar while she went back to check. i don't think it was her fault, but whomever was running the desk must have been confused or overwhelmed. Your other staff saw me standing in the middle of the restaurant and asked if they could help me which was very kind. When we did get seated it was a good table and the server was very good. Food was very good. there was another mix up when we were about to be served something we did not order and the expo was very kind and handled it well,

    Quality and taste of food excellent. Only complaint was very small portion of mussels as appetiser- several not opened ( taste was delicious). And when brought to the waitress attention, , the change was removed from the bill. Wasn’t looking for that but greatly appreciated. Highly r this rest for its food qua and tastes!

    Server was great. Very helpful. Host that seated us was ok, but not great. When the reservation was made we asked to sit upstairs, but this appeared to be ignored when we were seated. Then we asked to be moved and there was a bit of confusion, but finally were seated in a more suitable area.

    This is a beautiful restaurant, with luxe yet comfortable decor and a fun, energetic atmosphere. I was very impressed as our party of four was led to our table. However, in spite of our reservation, the hostess led us past empty, available tables and down a flight of greasy stairs to a basement patio. The open patio had nice views of the harbor, but it was very cold, and not all of the patio heaters were working. The floor was cold tile, and the “decor” was sparse and unappealing - nothing like the lovely dining room upstairs. Each chair had a fleece blanket on it. When I told our server I was cold, she offered to bring me more blankets. Her offer was appreciated, but blankets and sketchy patio heaters did not make up for the basement atmosphere in which we found ourselves, compared to the lovely dining room above us. Our dinner and the service were fine, although we did watch a mouse run across the dining area as we ate. Overall, my dining experience was a big disappointment.

    We were placed on a side table on the lower veranda with no view, no heater, no blanket (all others had) and no candle. Server did not pay attention. Asked how we liked our first bites before we had tried our meals. Server was quick to make small talk when we were paying our bill.
