Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Wonderful seafood (steelhead salmon) on a sunny terrace watching sea planes take off and land in the harbour. Very helpful staff and prompt service. Highly recommended.

From the moment we walked in and were Enthusiastically welcomed we Love the place. We were seated Immediately and our server Laura was lovely. I had the 2 lb Dungeness crab which I loved and the chief had the chicken and gnocchi. She likes it...but thought the gnocchis were a little too hard. Drinks were good and even though we didn’t have a water view we really enjoyed it.More

We stopped in for a late lunch. Got a good seat upstairs. We ordered the artisanal bread and butter for appetizers and I tried the Finn ale. Went well together. I had the fish and chips and my wife had the salmon sandwich with side...of mixed greens. Both were delicious and more than we could eat. Their espresso was good too. I would highly recommend this place for a nice lunch or fine evening mealMore

My husband and I eat at Finn’s very regularly. The service is always stellar. The food is consistently superb and it is ALWAYS hot. We have never experienced anything but high quality delicious food, wonderful service and the owner is also lovely. (She is there...all the time and personally takes the time to check in) The muscles are the best in town, the steak is perfectly cooked and we have never had anything we didn’t love. This is a bustling restaurant with lovely ambiance and we absolutely adore it.More

Came in for mums birthday. Very fake smiley service with no recognition for my mothers birthday. Extremely pretentious for mediocre food. A local warned us not to go and we should’ve listened.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Finn’s a few evenings ago! We were able to enjoy one of the first pleasant evenings of the season on the balcony overlooking the water. Our server was fabulous - she was personable, knowledgeable about the menu, and lovely...to talk with! She recommended the steelhead in a miso sauce, potato/sweet potato and broccolini when I asked her about a seafood suggestion and WOW!! It was just excellent! We will be back next time we visit Victoria!More

A good idea to make reservations for this busy seafood restaurant. We were seated at a comfortable table for 2 with a view of the inner harbour, I ordered the seafood linguine and my husband ordered the sablefish. Both were excellent. For dessert we shared...the yummy flourless chocolate cake. Service was very good. We will return.More

Deserving of its recognition as a great place to dine. If the evening looks to be sunny, then go early for “happy hour” drinks on their Inner Harbour facing deck and watch the marine traffic and float plane takeoffs and landings. Our group of six...all had tasty and well presented appetizers and main courses. Service from Laura was outstanding. Well worth going and if you plan to go for early dinner service it would be a good idea to make a reservation.More
