    First time to Fin and it was fabulous. Went on a Tuesday night so the restaurant was able to accommodate that I was 15 minutes late for my reservation. They couldn't have been nicer. Our waiter, Kameron, was helpful, friendly but not intrusive. The food was absolutely delicious. I ordered the grilled Caesar salad to begin and the homemade dressing was so good. Light and creamy and not overpoweringly strong with anchovies like some dressings can be. If they bottled and sold it, I'd buy it. Then on to the main course. I ordered the crab cakes. Always a gamble especially when crab prices are so high and restaurants seem to be using more and more filler. But not Fin. It had huge, delicious crab meat in every bite. It was served over a roasted squash and roasted sweet potato puree that had pieces of the squash/sweet potato so it was filling. Again, delicious. A glass of TwentyRows cabernet sauvignon was smooth and just right for the meal. I topped the meal off with their bread pudding. It came with a strawberries and cream topping but I noticed another dessert had cinnamon ice cream with an anglaise and I asked the waiter if it was possible to swap out the strawberry topping for the cinnamon anglaise. Very accommodating. And it was a perfect bread pudding. Very moist and flavorful. We talked about the meal in the car afterwards and said we'd definitely be back even though it's an hour drive.

    The experience was subpar. We weren't well informed on the menu by our server however, he was pleasant. We ordered raw oysters unaware that it came with a special salt tomato topping. We sent the oysters back and instead of making the oysters fresh, we received the same oysters. They appeared to be rinsed off although there were still leftover particles of the topping that we sent back. It disappointed me because my date or myself could've had an allergy or something of that nature and it was just very displeasing. We stopped the meal there and proceeded to go else where. I will say the cocktails were good but I don't see us ever coming back.

    Courteous and friendly waitress. Sooo happy that the sweet corn soup was put back on the menu. The garden salad left much to be desired because it mainly consisted of lettuce with some shredded cheese. Menu items are pricey.

    This was the best seafood I’ve ever had. I am from near Annapolis so I have had good seafood. But the rockfish here took the prize. I could not be more impressed. There was one noisy table while we were there, but I would certainly go again.

    Overall the crab sandwich was delicious. However, the Mamosa was terrible. My friend ordered 2 glasses and both drinks was not good and the Champaign and orange juice tasted flat and old. The cole slaw wasn’t that good either. I ordered a cup of she crab soup and it was only about 4oz. In the bowl for a high price.

    Food was absolutely amazing. We got the five course and it is very good. I was impressed with the flavors of all the food. Forgot a pic of the dessert. A little pricey and the portions are small but with five courses you’re full. They do spread out the courses so your food settles so you become full with less food on purpose. If you go for the five course or seven course you’re going for the experience.

    Service was top-notch as it always is at Fin, particularly with Addie as our server. Food was beyond delicious -- oysters 3 ways, scallops and risotto, cod and lobster with braised cabbage, and pecan-crusted rockfish with various sides. Cocktails well-priced, tasty, and not run-of-the-mill. Our go-to for special occasions without a second thought about options in Williamsburg or on the Southside.

    I enjoy this restaurant. I have dined there several times. However I have had an unpleasant experience with the hostess. Despite my request she sat us in a drafty corner and said that there was no draft. I had to get up and wait to get her attention to be reseated. They were not busy! Customers who politely request something should have their request honored! May not return very soon! Hope the management addresses this level of patron care!
