We arrived for our reservation and were walked by the bustling dining room to the patio. I asked where we were headed en route, and commented that I did not book a patio table in November. The hostess just said that's where you are. We...were pretty much alone out there. I had mentioned we would order wine with our mains, but they arrived on the heels of our apps, and our server did not loop back in time to consider wine. The food was fantastic. Great fish and seafood. But being exiled to an empty patio, and being forgotten about left a bad impression. As we left, I was sad to see the beautiful main restaurant inside, that we did not get to experience.More

After walking all around the harbour in Victoria, we decided to stop off here for an early dinner before the rain started. I had the Pizza Margherita, and it was delicious. My husband had the clam chowder which he raved about!

All the way from Holland with our Vancouver based son in Victoria. Both love seafood so we choose Finn’s. What an excellent choice it was. Great crab and great tuna. Really fresh and very well prepared. Nice drinks too. Worth your Visit!

Had an enjoyable meal with house wine. Service was fast and friendly. We had a pizza, which was very good. Other meal was the salad Nicoise with seared tuna. It was really good, but I would have liked the sear to be more noticeable and...more flavour to the sear. The dressing was very nice.More

This place exceeded my expectations. I had different vision in my head of what to expect, but it shattered expectations. The wait staff was great, very friendly and personable. The food was outstanding. The mussels were amazing. I highly recommend this place

This is quite a large restaurant but it is skillfully divided to create a good atmosphere. We enjoyed the food and service was good. I heard one customer complain about the noise/loud music but this wasn't an issue for us. Good location by the water....I suspect you need to be early to get a table with a window viewMore

Four of us went here for an evening meal. It was a bit to chilly for the patio for us old geezers, which is a must for the view if the weather allows. The view from our hotel overlooked the patio and we were hoping...for a warm evening in October to eat there, alas, it did not happen, so we ate inside while the younger couples braved the elements. They had heaters and blankets though. The inside is lovely, and the food and drinks are great. The menu is not huge so you know the food is fresh. Of course we had seafood and it was delicious. I was hoping for halibut, but there was none on the menu. The cocktails were top notch, and the service very good. Family owned and operated, it shows, they really put in the effort.More
