Tapas Tuesday a real Bargain

Excellent tapas and wine pairings make this a fun place to try out new dishes and wine! great outdoor seating in the spring. summer and fall. A good place for the Wednesday night entertainment in the public square across the street.

We were stuffed into a corner even though the dining room was almost empty. I ordered the pecan crusted flounder. I must say it tasted awful. In addition, I pulled out a mouthful of bones each time I tried a bite and eventually gave up. The dish had undercooked root vegetables which tasted terrible. My husband tried it and wouldn't...

Tried the ahi tuna tartare with sirachha ice cream, salmon cooked medium, mac-cheese with truffles. The chef knows his stuff! What a dining experience, to say the very least. Server knowledgeable and pleasant. I can't remember when ice enjoyed a meal more.

Excellent dishes that are not typical. Unique desserts. Very good wine. She crab soup is the best I've had in the region and certainly the best I've tasted in years. It was better than any in Baltimore or Boston. The service was spot on as well. The restaurant's reviews seem well deserved. This place would be good for any kind... More

Victor, six satisfied customers out of six? That's what we like to hear! The crab soup is always a great choice when you're in a pinch, and we totally agree that dessert should be enjoyed after a fine meal. We can't wait to have you back. All the best, Kenny Sloane, executive chef & owner More

There is a five and a seven course option with wine pairings and frankly you can't go wrong with either! Everything was perfectly prepared, the portions perfect for a multiple course tasting menu that left you satisfied but still wanting a little more! The wine pairings were exquisite--and they will even split one pairing between two people if you want... More

If you are in the Williamsburg or area anywhere near Newport News do not miss out on a dining experience at Fin. The restaurant has the elements of farm to table. The oysters were fresh delicious and presented with the yummiest bloody mary ice! My daughter and I both ordered a steak which seemed a little odd at a restaurant... More

My husband and I have been to this restaurant many times. It is about an hour away from where we live so we make a point to visit whenever we have an appointment in Newport News or are traveling near. It makes our trip worthwhile.

In a nice location. Attractive area and lovely restaurant. Good wait staff. Delicious food and great presentation. Only downside was we were not told the specials and we were not served bread as other tables were. Would definitely return.

My husband and I ordered drinks and the waitress asked if we had a brand preference; to which we replied no - house brand is fine. When the check came we were charged for top shelf liquors and my husband questioned it. The waitress said that those are our house brands tonight. Also, I got one crab cake that was... More
