LOVE this place!!! Casual and OUTSTANDING food!! The 3 times we dined here were experiences. Can't say that about too many restaurants! The food is FRESH, service is personable and efficient. They really care about their customers... bottom line. While the atmosphere is so-so, they make up for it in the food and service. They take pride in everything they do. We've tried different dishes each time, asked for recommendations and have NEVER been disappointed in a single bite. This is a keeper and a favorite restaurant. One we will return to time after time. As they get more known, I'm afraid it will be a hard place to get into. Better get in while the gettin's good!!!

Poor overall quality and the standard of a mediocre diner! Four of us were there 2 days ago and independantly were not satisfied. The food quality is average and plated onto cold plates. The cold fish sauce on cold plates made the fish cold.Not enough dressing on the caesar salad, which was just lettuce and croutons. Where were the bacon, anchovies and creamy egg-based mayo type of dressing.Staff ( servers) were attentive, but too many for this small place. The lady co-owner was dismissive when the standard of food was mentioned. Previously run as Maximes, it was a good restaurant then.
I'm not against new ownership, but they need to pull their socks up.

The food was great. The staff was very attentive. The price was very competitive when compared to the quality and their competition.

2nd visit to Fin Bistro - just as good or better than the first. Food and presentation were superior - from the bread to the salad to the entrees to dessert. Staff was excellent - we were waited on by several different people and they all seemed invested in providing a top-notch experience. The place was packed but our table was ready at the reservation time - no waiting.

Fish, wine, desert and bread was great. Cesar salad needed more dressing but overall a great restaurant...will go back again.
