“Average Selection of Seafood”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

Was looking for a seafood restaurant and I found this place. The selection of different types of seafood was lacking. I ended up not eating seafood at all, and ordered what the waiter recommended and it was the lamb. Very surprised when I received just 2 little lamb chops as the main entree. The meat was good, but the seasoning was lacking. I was in the main dining room and it did seem like everyone in there was enjoying the bar area, so maybe that is the better option.

“Very good for Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

Lunch last Friday, late about 2:30 PM. Restaurant had very good wait staff [Conner] and a full staff in the kitchen. Got the 3 course lunch for $15. and with the lettuce wedge, fish tacos [ 2] and the push pop for desert it was not only a bargain but very good food. Will travel down to Newport News to visit again

“Back to FIN”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

I have enjoyed FIN a couple of times but went on Friday hoping that Katie was working the bar based on her previous outstanding service and knowledge. I had a friend in from out of town who loves a good Martini and is somewhat particular about how they are made. As usual Katie was exceptional; drinks were great and she is extremely professional, polite and pleasant. We also had some great firecracker shrimp --- an overall excellent experience!

“Fabulous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2014

Our party of four had a wonderful dinner here a few nights ago. Service was impeccable, and all of the food was beautifully presented and tasted delicious. Starters included oysters on the half shell, sweet corn soup with jumbo lump crab meat, and an asparagus soup with lobster meat that was a special of the day. Entrées included seared scallops, flounder and butter poached crab, macadamia nut crusted salmon, and two soft-shell crabs that were a special of the day. All came with interesting and delicious accompaniments. Nice wine list, and the server made great recommendations and allowed us to taste before committing to buying a whole glass. There were also two different desserts ordered - crème brulee and a decadent flourless chocolate cake with other chocolate delicacies on the plate - a chocolate lover's dream. A great fine dining experience! Oh, and for those who don't like seafood, don't stay away from this place. They have plenty of non-seafood options, and the duck entrée that we saw passing our table en route to its destination looked wonderful. There was a fairly good sized crowd at the bar when we arrived, but not to worry. The large bar room is completely closed off from the dining room, so there was no noise from the bar to interfere with our dinner, and the acoustics in this place were simply perfect (as was everything else).
