Great seafood and great service! Had a table that looked out over the water and I’m sure it’s awesome to be out on the large patio in the summer.

Their filet mignon has been a melt in your mouth favorite in the past but my son an I were both disappointed this time as it was less than tender.

Best meal I’ve had out to dinner in a long time! I got the grilled halibut special and repeatedly said how it great was to my boyfriend. Great food, presentation and portions! Evan our server was a pleasure too. We’ve have a great experience both of the times we went and we will continue to go back. My boyfriend says he could go every weekend!

Food and service were great.
Ambiance was a little lacking.
No table clothe and wooden chairs detracted from experience

Extraordinary seafood cuisine, bright attentive wait staff, plus, with this new design at their new location, the view to the harbor is universally available to all diners - including those distant from glazing. Fabulous experience!! Suggest trying their seafood paella entry!

Very disappointing... The new location is not as cozy, very loud. I find the food to be less than mediocre, the tuna was a weird color and tastless. They charged $10 for a birthday dessert of their choice that was not even complete, they left off the ice cream for a child. Overall, I gave them a second chance at the new location and I will probably not be back.

Our food was incredible but our server did everything to avoid us. The place was not even that busy which was a real surprise that he took way too long to bring us water and even take our order. We were nearly complete with our appetizer before he came back to take our dinner order. If he was more attentive it would’ve been the perfect experience.

We were a group of 4 visiting Salem for the Salem-So-Sweet Events. I prebooked our reservation at Finz for 4. They brought us right time the table exactly on-time. Three of us ordered sushi 🍣, which was fantastic! One ordered the burger and said it was really good! The cookie pie for dessert was to die for! I highly recommend the lobster California Roll! A bit pricey, but oh so worth it! Our Server Chrrystina D. was a doll and very attentive.

We visited in the cold winter month of early February. However, we all said the ocean view looked fantastic and we’d love return again in the warmer weather. There were also a bunch of adorable shops all around Finz within the same little parking area. We were bummed the shops were all closed when we arrived at 5:30pm. Seems like it’s more of a warm weather area to visit. Will return!, Thank you!

Excellent food and exceptional service. The goat cheese appetizer was delicious as was the seafood tacos and the swordfish with excellent sides. The only disappointment was the creme brulee, which was runny, tasted like pudding instead of custard, and had too much burned sugar on top. To their credit, it was removed from the bill even though we did not ask for that. Lovely views and great service.

Food was outstanding which made the overall grade 5 stars. Service also great, constantly checking on us. We were expecting it to be more upscale so we dressed nice but it was pretty casual. I would still recommend dressing nice. It was loud when we first came in but we sat in the back and it was nice. Window seats was where the noise came from.

The noise level was so high on Saturday night we had to ask for another table away from the high tops so we could have a conversation.
One of my companions ordered the butternut squash soup and found it too thick for her liking. We didn't ask for rolls, but they were not offered.
The entrees were very good, including the spicy Maki. Yes, it is spicy!
The wait staff was attentive, the price reasonable.

This restaurant has gone up and down in quality over the years. As of now, they seem to have improved on the food and service. A nice variety of seafood dishes but not many other options. All the food was well-prepared and tasty. Cocktails were only so-so but there's a decent wine selection. They did a nice job on renovating the location although it is a bit noisy. Service was very good.

Had a great night there with my family. It was nice to relax after the hectic holiday season. We raved about crab nachos the next day. Our table of six was taken care of by an extremely attentive waiter. He was patient and funny. The two things we needed that night. Our meals were delicious and the portions were satisfying. My family will be back. Thank you for a great night
