We made reservations and found the restaurant on tripadvisor. We were seated promptly and the waiter was very helpful. They have a tablet that helps with the pairing of fish and wine, very neat and techy. The fish we ordered was prepared perfectly and well seasoned. My husband was tempted to lick his plate. The only thing we were hoping for was slow service since we had family watching the kids and wanted to continue enjoying the night away the owners were very nice as well and we would definitely come here again next time we are in town. Not to be missed for a nice time out!

This bustling, trendy restaurant has both indoor and outdoor seating. We sat indoors, had a reservation but got there a bit early, so we sat at the bar and ordered wine from the very cool electronic menu. John, behind the bar, was multi-tasking but took great care of us.

He also ended up being our server. Kathy and Brian, the owners, both stopped by our table to ensure we were pleased with our meals. Delightful people who are working their tails off to keep their little restaurant at the top of TA ratings. And wow, are they ever doing a tremendous job of that!

I had the grouper -- pan seared and so very fresh -- but wanted different sides than what were posted on the menu. No problem. Had the potato puree and buttered green beans with it. Delicious! My friend had the snapper, very lightly breaded. It was fantastic as well.

We can't say enough about this restaurant ... the quality of the food, John and the owners ... they're doing it right. We hope to squeeze in another meal here before we leave. Do call ahead for reservations. If you leave a message, Kathy will call you back ... I'd let her know in your vm the day/time/number of people in your party so she can give you an answer when she calls you back.

My wife Cheryl and I eat at Fin Bistro regularly. The entire experience makes Fin Bistro one of the best resturant in SW Florida.
Try the any number of different fish entries (my personal favorite is the Cobia)but save room desert!

We were referred to the restaurant by a friend of ours and they were spot on with this gem on Marco, we will recommend it to everyone we know! We decided not to have any wine because of the drive back to naples but that didn't stop our sever form offering plenty of recommendations on apps, entrees and WOW the deserts, we enjoyed the sea food chowder, cobia, snapper and the breadpuding all were amazing! We had a great time despite an unruly young couple sitting in a corner table adjacent from us, complaining loudly and acting foolish. We also overheard them trying to get free food for the young mans birthday, it was very unfortunate but was handled
professionally by all the staff. We made another reservation for next week and will defiantly be trying the wine next trip:)
