We had read great reviews so had to check out this highly rated place. The restaurant is vibrant, but really noisy. I am not usually sensitive to this, but wow it was loud as it was packed on a Sunday night. Service was top notch, but way too quick. We had drinks, apps, dinner and desert and we are done in 75 minutes?? I know its a fine balance, but we found way too many restaurants on this trip that were about speed of service. Waiter was delightful as were the support staff. Food was very good too.

Overall a great venue and really good selection of options. Sadly the cobia was unavailable after being told it was but the sheepshead was an unexpected treat.

The only let down was the service which was quite hit and miss.

Definitely worthwhile

Despite very good reviews and an interesting menu, GW Fins surprised us. All five women, several of whom are good cooks and all of whom are discriminating eaters, were disappointed in every dish—the descriptions were all much better than the food.
