Four of us celebrated a birthday there, we seated ourselves outside on a lovely late March evening. My seared yellowtail tuna was very good, beet and orange salad was delicious, cocoanut crusted chicken and golden tile fish were wonderful. Oysters were fresh and good. Very expensive, but a wonderful location right on St Armand's Circle.

Located at St. Armands circle this is a fun, casual place for dinner. You can go early and wander through the interesting shops then relax with a good dinner.

We have been wanting to get to the Crab & Fin for a while at the suggestion of close friends. We had a late lunch on a Saturday. The service and food was excellent! The raw bar is an amazing set up. I don't think I have seen a set up like this since I was at the Grande Place in Belgium. We stayed with the seafood, i had the salmon and my wife the KingKlip which was new to us and very delicate mild white fish. This is a popular spot, the line forms early for the happy hour specials which was 20% off menu specialties for persons seated in the main dining room from 5:00 to 5:45 pm.

Sat at the bar. Comfortably enjoyed cocktails and a delicious Sword Fish dinner. Everyone was very friendly.

We ate at Crab and Fin Monday, March 11, 2013, the food was great but the waitress was terribke. Not at all what you would expect from a restaurant in this price range (or any good restaurant for that matter). Waitress never checked on us, we had to pour our own wine, get silverwear off of other tables and never had water glasses refilled. I had the seared tuna which was cooked perfect and tasted wonderful! Don't think I would return considering all the great choices that offer delicious food and wonderful service.
