“The best restaurant in Venice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

I was lucky enough to eat here by chance. There are a lot of rumors going around that they are just a catering place, but they do both. Where we ate was not too far from a small wedding celebration. We were fine with it. It made us smile to see the happiness. That said, the food is great! We ate outside, and even though it was cold, they have heat that comes down on you and it was fabulous. We were not there for sunset, but I bet it would be a beautiful view. It is now our favorite restaurant in Venice. Check out my menu picture.

“Great Birthday Surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

My lovely wife took me to FIn's (first time here) for my birthday and it was a pleasant surprise and a great evening.

The place looks amazing, very inviting. I especially enjoyed the aquarium .

The hostess was professional, the bartender & waiter, Andy, was not only efficient, but entertaining. He mixes a great lemonade (pink) and vodka. Jason assisted Andy, and again, very pleasant service.

Finally, Justin, the General Manager came over to welcome us. He was very patient as my wife, an Interior Designer & Feng Shui Consultant, complimented him on the decor.

Loved the whole experience and I can't wait to get back!

“Fin at Sharky's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

The new fine dining "Fin at Sharky's" is a breath of fresh air and such an improvement over the quality found at the Sharky's outdoor venue right next door. We enjoyed high grade Sushi, great seafood, superb steaks and incredible desserts made for a fantastic evening. Considering they were only open a few weeks, the service, food and drink were timely, tastely, and exciting...

The sushi chef even shared some new items he was working on and visited our table. The views of the gulf, while always breathtaking, were even more so from the heated screened in deck. What a great night.

We had an exceptional experience at Fin's. The food was great, service was excellent and ambiance, impressive. Fin's has created a great upscale-style restaurant in Venice. Congratulations.

“You Can Have It All: Waterfront Restaurant, Great View, and Great Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

We've eaten here 3 times over the past 2 weeks. Needless to say, it's a great overall experience. From the moment you walk in the door, you are well taken care of. There is not a bad table in the place, either inside or outside. The menu changes frequently, with a limited selection of well prepared appetizers and entrees. Well prepared is the word for sure. All of the preparations are well thought out to complement each other. With the ever changing selection of options to reflect what is available, you can not go wrong. The meet selections are perfectly cooked under the Josper Oven, which gives the meat a nice crust to seal in the juices and a nice subtle mesquite flavor. The service is attentive and efficient. Although this place is new and has some minor kinks to work out, it escalates the fine dining scene in Venice to a new level.
