A Fin Little Japanese Place

This really Japanese restaurant is located on the Post road in the Brick Walk area of Fairfield Connecticut , which is a lively strip of shops, restaurants and professional offices. The place is small and unobtrusively and casually decorated. Despite beers, wines and hard liquor, they don't seem to... read more

So bad fish and sushi was not fresh! If you are a sushi lover and are very particular with the type of sushi you eat do not attend this establishment, you will be very disappointed.

Can always count on Fin to be good. My favorite of all the local sushi spots. Greats deals for lunch. Even can order off the menu and not totally confuse them. For $13 had a spicy kimche soup and sesame tuna over seaweed salad. Awesome. Def check it out if you haven't.

I have been to Fin a few times and always had a great meal but we visited last week and were very disappointed. Specifically, I ordered the seafood pad thai which the menu said came with shrimp, scallops, crab, and a fish cake. The crab was obviously imitation! If a restaurant is going to serve imitation crab then they should... More

FIN is my go-to restaurant in the Fairfield area for sushi. The food is always very fresh, the wait-staff and manager very pleasant and helpful.

Sushi is fresh and generally a good value. There have been a few instances were gnats were flying around which kind of ruined it.

Tommy, the sushi chef, is simply the best at his craft. The fish, the preparation, the service and the warmth of the staff make Fin an outstanding restaurant. My advice is to let Tommy know your likes/dislikes and allow him to surprise you with his choices. His sister and owner, Ling, will make you feel welcome along with the rest... More

A little hard to find when just driving down the road but a nice little place. Excellent sushi and very fresh. Salmon off the menu was a huge portion and extremely tasty. Service was a little slow but it was after lunch. Would definitely go back when I'm in town next time.
