We always enjoy a visit to Fionn's on a weekend with live music. Great food, cold drinks & outstanding service. It's always a great night out with friends, when you just dont want to tackle the downtown scene anymore. 👍👍

We had a very enjoyable lunch. Service was really good and waitress kept checking back with us. We will be returning for sure.

The calamari was the best I have ever tasted!!! Amazing! The three of us ordered burgers and were disappointed the edges were burnt and the burgers lacked flavour.

The service was second to none! Our server was awesome! Friendly, efficient and knowledgeable!!!

The only thing missing is Heineken on tap! Lol
My husbands favourite beer!
We go every Friday or sat nights, it’s great after a long work week!

Nice restaurant with a menu that has something for everyone! Our food was great. Service was a little slow but not that bad. Serve4 was really nice just really busy. Overall a great dining experience. Would certainly recommend to anyone looking for a nice variety menu a5 a reasonable price.

The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. It was a little congested because of a couple of group settinge but its that time of year. We were very happy with our visit

Absolutely disgusted with our 1st experience dining at your establishment! It was my Husband’s 50th Birthday - there was no acknowledgement of this by staff, even though I mentioned it in the online booking and called ahead the day of to ensure our reservation was ready. We chose your restaurant based on the live music component, which was the best part of our evening! We weren’t informed of specials, we had to flag down a server on several occasions, we ate at different times due to food being delivered separately - others were finished before we even started to eat - our bills were wrong, and a takeout order was incorrect. We were squat up in our table seating - my Husband stood up most of the night! On such a milestone occasion, you’d think your staff would go above and beyond to make this the best experience ever - not the case! Thanks for the memories!

Hi there,

We were there this past Friday for my Husbands Birthday on Friday, September 6th. When i booked the reservation online for the 10 of us, i put in the note section that is was my husbands 30th birthday but there was no mention of it from our server. I was hoping they would acknowledge. Also when we got out bills, there was a fool up, we were over charged $85. And my Mom told the waitress that our bills wasn't right but the server said nope thats right. My Mom then asked her to bring it out on one bill to see where she took the gift card off. Then the server came back with still 4 separate receipts and she said something went wrong and we got charged for other meals from another table. We had called a cab when we requested for our bills, but this held us up for 20 mins and the cab had to wait on us for 15 mins.
In the meantime we do love coming to your restaurant, we love the food and entertainment, but just wanted to let you know our frustration on the bill when we kept asking for the bill to go on one receipt. We couldnt see if the gift card came off.

We were booked for friday, September 6th for 10 people at 6:45 under Amanda Tulk.

I love this place and usually the fish and chips is the best but unfortunately this visit the fish was burnt to a crisp. I don’t usually say anything but it was disappointing. I most certainly will come back and hope that I won’t have a repeat of this experience.

Food and service was great, no complaints. Only issue we had was that the live music was far too loud for the space. We literally had to shout across the table to hear each other. During the break it was much more enjoyable.

Lobster/shrimp roll was so delicious we went back a few times. One of their feature desserts that was to start a few weeks ago, won’t be available until the 23rd. Very disappointed, it looked good.
Service was good but very slow.

The waitress seated kids at the bar, didn’t bring kid menus, didn’t bring coloring sheets, then didn’t bring enough coloring sheets, forgot my straw, and was not very attentive. I had to ask for what I feel should be obvious things. The food was good, and the atmosphere was good. The service was poor.

Food was great.

Live band was a little loud and early in the evening. More suited for group outings looking for a fun evening. We had a nice date but the conversation was limited to between songs.

A little on the expensive side but you do get what you pay for.

Service was fabulous
Food was ok not what I had expected spinach dip was as if it was cooked and reheated several times before served.
Thought the menu was larger last time we went
Will think twice before returning again

Went with 4 friends and we all loved the atmosphere, the food was excellent and the staff were very attentive. We all had something different to eat and everyone said their meal was delicious. I will definitely be going back.

Food was OK. If I go back it would be for the atmosphere and to have drinks not to have a great meal.
