Fin - Baltimore

8 Thumbs Up. Not usually one to start a thread, however, I have seen many mixed reviews in various local sources over the past couple of months. Tonight four of us had an excellent experience and wanted to pass it along.

Grilled Calamari, Mushroom Tart, Mussels and a Chopped Salad started the meal - all were made to perfection.

Salmon, Sea Bass and Filet Mignon were the main courses, not one complaint was to be had. As an extra bonus, all entrees came with vegetables - we also ordered asparagus, brocolini and fries as extras - the only complaint were the fries - the flavor was there, but they were a bit too greasy.

Dessert was the Bananna Bread Pudding and it made for a great ending.

Fin is the closest thing I have found in the past few months to our dearly gone but not forgotten Nasu Blanca. Visit these guys and enjoy. We will be back.

    I ate there a few months back. Food was quite good, though I'd put it below Jack's, Bicycle, and the Wine Market, especially for the price. Service was fine though the ambience was a bit uneven (blue painted concrete floor, old carpet) if you care about that sort of thing (I don't).

    The problem that Fin has, though, is that no one goes there. It was practically empty when I was there and when my girlfriend's parents went, they also said that it was deserted. Go while you still can.

      I hope some more replies come in---8 thumbs is pretty convincing however.

        Yes, I would like to see some more replies too. I only touched on the the food - I was wondering if anyone had thoughts on service, winelist and ambiance.
