“Went twice and totally satisfied with food and service!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

Our first visit was our first to Fin Bistro. Being so highly rated on TA, we had high expectations.....and they were met. The server Derek was outstanding in describing dishes and offering suggestions......truly a professional. Wife had the grouper and I had the swordfish; both exceptional in their taste and preparation....not a single complaint. The key lime flan for dessert was a treat, lighter than pie and velvety smooth. A great ending to a wonderful evening.
Our second visit included our son......again a bit apprehensive since he's a foodie and were we going to be let down from the high expectations we told him about? Not at all. Our server Jesse proved as professional and knowledgeable as Derek had been the previous visit. Our apps were tuna, gulf prawns and baked goat cheese........all delicious. The entrees were grouper, Florida lobster and sea scallops.......again, absolutely delicious and prepared so well.......kudos to the chef!!!!!

“Great Food and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

My wife and I recently went there for our anniversary dinner. We thought the food was excellent. I had the scallops and she had the Mahi Mahi. The service was also great and we would definitely eat there again. The location is not the greatest so do not go there if you're looking for great atmosphere.

“Overrated and overpriced”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014 via mobile

We ate there last week based on the rave reviews. We found to fish very bland, and the server not responsive, stating "you are one out of 100--you can't please everybody." And he was absolutely correct. We will not be back and would urge others to consider carefully whether this restaurant deserves it shift rating!

“The hits keep coming!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

This is just an exceptional restaurant. We had the same waiter for the third time in 5 months. He is spectacularly good. My wife told him to bring the best gluten free fish on the menu and she loved it. She even asked to change the starch to the cauliflower puree and they complied. I had the swordfish which was really good. My boys split the red snapper, which I had on my first visit to Fin Bistro. My 9 year old daughter had chicken strips and she enjoyed them. It's hard to get into this restaurant so plan accordingly.

“Great restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

Highly recommend! Will go again. The restaurant is small and popular so make sure you make a reservation.
