“Great dinner!”

Tried this restaurant based on Trip Advisor reviews and it was spot on! The food was outstanding! Service was fabulous! We had four of us and we had scallops, flounder and grouper! Everyone loved their meal!! We will return!

“Good Reason It's Número Uno...”
Reviewed December 2, 2013 via mobile

Located in a non-descript building in the middle of Marco on Collier, this is the best I've had in Marco yet. Great service, great food - and while it's a solid "4" on an absolute basis, it's certainly a "5" in Marco.

Apps good, house sales great and a bargain at $5. Entrees very good as well, both were fish for this visit - and all of servers recommendations were on the mark.

Dessert equally excellent and service outstanding. Make a reservation, as it's full even on an off season Monday.

You won't be disappointed - I promise.

“Great seafood restaurant on Marco Island”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

Fin Bistro is an excellent fairly new addition to the restaurant scene on Marco Island. Very attentive staff, nice atmosphere and an innovative menu. We liked Fin Bistro very much. It is now on our list of "go to" spots on Marco.

“A Lovely Night Out”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

When my wife and I arrived at the restaurant we opted to sit outside even though it was a little cool. The inside of the restaurant is cozy and lively but we had left our toddler at the resort with her Grananny and were looking for quiet and a little more privacy which the patio provided. The staff fired up the Arizona heater which quickly heated up our corner of the patio. Our waiter Dean did an exception job familiarizing us with the menu. We ordered the roasted beet and carpaccio salads. Both salads were exceptional, among the best I've had. For our main entrees we ordered the Cobia and Black Grouper. We both agreed that the presentation and the ingredients which accompanied the fish were excellent and the fish itself was good but not great. Our waiter recommended the Dark Chocolate Truffle Cake and it did not disappoint. It provided a great finish to a lovely night out.

“I am nearly speechless after this incredible meal”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

We are on our first visit to Marco Island and looked on TripAdvisor for a place to eat dinner. Thank you TripAdvisor! At first, the reviews for Fin Bistro seemed almost too good to be true. Wow I'm glad we tried this place. We were met and seated by Kathy O'Brien, one of the owners. Kathy was very welcoming . Our server John was attentive and knowledgeable. But the best part, every course was amazingly complex and most importantly delicious! We are already planning our next trip to Marco Island just to have dinner here again (not an exaggeration!)
