Went to Fin w friends during restaurant week and everything was delicious. The restaurant week portions were large and quite good. We learned The Chef was on vacation and the food was still on point. This is a must try while in the area.

Went here on a recommendation. Although highly recommended, the experience was certainly understated. Though I was taking the traditional route ordering "smoked" salmon. If you order it, be prepared to be surprised. The entire meal kept our taste buds asking for more. It is a small and comfortable place.

In the area visiting family and being from San Diego, I was hoping for a delicious and pleasant dining experience, Unfortunately, that was not what happened. We went to this restaurant for lunch on a weekday and had to wait in the entry way for a table to be set for our party of four even though there were empty... More

The meal we had on Saturday night was one of the best I have had in the area. I had the Rock Fish and my wife had the Scallops. Both were cooked to perfection. The chef presented both with local vegetables in a very playful and delicious way. The service was second to none. All of the food served at... More

Fin is in a great location and has a nice ambiance and slightly elegant feel about it. The waiter was very friendly and very knowledgeable but "over sold" the quality of the food and spent way too much time trumpeting the local sourcing, credentials of the chef and how much his wife enjoys the menu. The presentation with every appetizer... More

I should have written this review when I visited the restaurant--I can't remember exactly what I had, but I remember it was excellent! My husband and I sat outside and shared an appetizer; he then had the salmon and I had, well, something equally delicious. We split the pumpkin cheesecake dessert. They have an extensive wine list, full bar, and... More

Yes, there are a few other very good places in the Newport News, VA area, but FIN is my favorite! I love the fact that the chef locally sources his ingredients from local VA farmers and fishermen. Everything is always fresh and the service is excellent. Granted, I usually go in with some regular customers, but I bet they treat... More

Have had lunch here many times and not bad at all. A bit pricey but have not had a bad experience. Service is always good as well.

We dined with friends for her birthday at Fin. I enjoyed the she crab soup, roasted Caesar salad (yummy) and fresh fish of the evening. Everything was excellent. For dessert we had donuts. They are served with a warm caramel sauce and ice cream, a must try if you have never had them. Tommy served us and made our evening... More
