After inquiring as to where the best dinner on the Island was, our Hotel valet recommended Fin Bistro. From the moment we sat down and began looking over the scrumptious offerings and hearing from our waiter that the emphasis was on providing only the freshest fish caught and served daily we were hooked. After starting off with the Yellowtail Avacado Crudo, we split the Roasted beet Palm Heart Salad. Both had excellent flavor and presentation. But for me the best part of my meal was the entree "West Florida Cobia" It is absolutely, hands-down the most delicious fish i have ever eaten. White, thick, flaky and buttery in taste, this fish will not disappoint! It was served prefectly cooked with a medly of squash, asparagus and wild mushrooms. In a word PERFECTION! Our meal was so delicious the first night we were there that we made reservations for the very next night before we left the establishment! The second night did not disappoint! I've been back home for two weeks, and still want to go back and eat at Fin Bistro! Do yourself and favor and go!

My wife and I vacationed on Marco Island last week and were referred to this terrific restaurant by the valet at the Hilton and we personally thanked him for the heads up! Our terrific and informative waiter Dean said it all in his opening statement to us "it's all about fresh fish here". I had the lobster and my wife had the flounder. This is was the freshest fish we've ever eaten, it must have been swimming the day before. It was prepared in a marvelous and delicious way by Brian the owner and head chef. Brian came to our table to personally inquire about our meal and he couldn't have been nicer and more accommodating. We had the Key Lime Flan for dessert and it was fabulous. The meal was incredible and the service was first class. The serve beer and wine and the atmosphere is intimate, but not pretentious. If you're interested in the freshest seafood prepared in the most delicious and innovative fashion check out Fin Bistro. We ate there every night we were in Marco and we'll definitely be back. Thanks guys for a most memorable evening in a most beautiful Florida resort town!

Although they've only been open for 1 year they have hit it right. The place was full and energetic. Casual attire is fine. The food was tastily prepared. Wine list small but well represented. Reservations are probably a must at this time.

Clearly, Fin Bistro chose to invest in food quality, not interior design. Great investment decision. Though the place itself is unassuming (if not downright dowdy) in appearance and location, the menu features innovative, interesting (yet reasonably priced) dishes made from local, fresh ingredients, served up by a knowledgeable and friendly wait staff. We enjoyed the Roasted Beet, Palm Hearts Salad and Coconut Gulf Prawn Salad appetizers, and the Florida Keys Dorado and the Key West Swordfish as entrees. Chef/owner Brian clearly has a flair for interesting pairings. One of the best seafood meals we've had in years. Highly recommend Fin Bistro.
