    Overpriced for quality. Sat by fireplace, waitress couldn't figure out how to turn it on or perhaps didn't ask. Wine is expensive.

    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!

    The best truffle fries and poke bowl in Victoria! We had a beautiful table, the drinks - Margarita for me and Shirley Temple for the granddaughter were perfection. Our server, Patricio, was friendly and attentive and checked on us frequently. This is my new favorite restaurant in Victoria and one I’ll visit often, whenever we return. Thank you for a great evening!

    Nice location with water views, loved the interior of this restaurant. Our meal of steelhead was delicious in a beautiful sauce with an interesting yam/potato pave and broccolini. I didn’t notice the soy shitake salad if it was there and the meal would have benefitted from one more vegetable but it was delicious. Our waiter was really personable and good. Overall a good experience. I would go back to compare experiences.

    My husband and I made a reservation for the Valentine's day. We wanted to be seated at the table beside the window, which has no reservation sign it, but they didn't want to give it to us. I asked whether the specific table can be reserved during the reservation time, they said no. But they gave the table to the customer came half an hour later than us, Caucasian senior couple. I felt I was discriminated because my husband is Caucasian and I am an Asian. We waited about an hour for the food arrive. They offered a sample soup while we were waiting, which was nice. The food was good but the portion was quite small. My expectation was high with all the high reviews, but my Valentine dine out was a bit unpleasant experience.
    Finn's Seafood, Chops and CocktailsResponded 6 days ago
    I'm sorry you had such a negative experience on your visit. Tables are allocated before each dinner service, prioritizing reservations based on how far in advance they were made. We do not use reserved signs on our tables. If your reservation was made several weeks in advance (as most were on Valentine's Day) please let me know, and include the name the reservation was under so we can investigate. It is important to us that everyone leaves happy, and I will gladly look into this for you. Sincerely, David Cooper Owner
