“Excellent fresh fish with interesting preparations”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

Well worth the trip!!
Don't let the strip mall location dissuade you. Atmosphere is could use some romantic touches but if you want excellently prepared dishes and great service, this is your place!

“Outstanding...Again!”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

We had such a great experience in 2012, we returned again this year. No disappointments. We invited our friends to join us for dinner and they were equally impressed with the cuisine and welcoming atmosphere. In my estimation, the grouper with gnocci was by far the menu highlight. My husband would argue in favor of the mouth-watering scallops which I will admit were heavenly. And did I mention that the service was impeccable? By far, the BEST restaurant in Marco Island.

“Do not miss this restaurant!”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

Everything was right with Fin bistro. Service was excellent. The atmosphere is active but not too loud which seemed to fit the setting. All of the extensive menu items were prepared in some unique way. It was difficult to decide. We had yellowfin avocado crudo, warm goat cheese bruschetta, cobia, atlantic black grouper, and dorado. Everything was so good we had to have everyone else taste. We don't normally get dessert but the waiter convinced us to try the white chocolate apple bread pudding which was fantastic. This is a relatively small place so make a reservation. If I lived in the area, I would eat here as often as possible. Do not miss Fin Bistro if you are in or near Marco Island.

“Best seafood and service...hands down!”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

I ate here two nights in a row...it was THAT good!! The Chef is amazing! It was the best seafood I have ever had. Wish I could have tried everything on the menu. The service was top notch and the dessert was the perfect finish. Can't wait to return...this is my new go-to place on Marco Island.

“Best fresh food!”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

We booked this restaurant based on TripAdvisor reviews and were not disappointed. Everything on the menu was interesting. Our choices of calamari, grouper and swordfish were fresh, freshly cooked, paired with exciting flavours and textures and imaginatively presented. The chef here is clearly passionate about his food and took the trouble to visit each table. A slight criticism might be the speed at which we were processed through the restaurant, but this minor niggle was obliterated by the excellence of the cuisine. A must visit restaurant if you are within 50 miles.
