We had a nice dinner. The scallops were nicely prepared but a little sparse on the portions. Oysters and spring rolls were decent. Ambience was great and we had a nice round table near the window. The service was attentive and very accommodating for some food allergies we had.

The restaurant is convenient situated in the lobby of the Hilton, great for when you are weary after a long day in the city. We found the portions to be tasty but dainty ... and the prices to be lofty.
However, the most disturbing to us especially in the world of Covid - and this is something I admit we should have found the manager to address this - there were white oval plates on each table setting. Once we ordered, these plates were removed, and placed in a cabinet adjacent to where we were seated at a table for two. The plates were then reused on other tables, or if diners asked for extra plates. In the old days, I would have thought this gross. In these days, I found it totally unacceptable and unhealthy. I think this high end restaurant should have their SOP and servers trained never to reuse anything that was previously on another table. Those plates were "burned" and NOT for reuse.

The staff was very professional, great service, very nice ambiance for a special occasion. Was not impressed with some of the dishes for the price. Tuna tacos and lobster ravioli were outstanding, so was salmon and the chicken

Oysters were originally bad. Heads server/manager took care of it by giving us a better selection of oysters which amounted to an additional 6. But in the end there was no discount on the bill. We paid full price for everything and it was marginal at best. I think you should change you policy. Cant recommend as people expect a restaurant to comp bad food.

It was our Anniversary. We were treated like royalty! Comped us with starter of 2 glasses of champagne, then 6 oysters. Our Lobster Ravioli was great. Then presented with a wonderful cheesecake, and a photo. We will never forget it!

Fin Point has been my go to lunch location for some time. I really enjoy the Salmon entre. However at my last lunch there last week I noticed a "kitchen fee" for $2.00 which I found outrageous. I won't be going back.

The seared tuna salad was one of the best I have ever had. Think tuna poke bowl over fresh greens in a ginger soy dressing...absolutely delicious.

Fin Point was a fabulous dining experience. The food was fabulous and cooked to perfection. The presentation of the food was gorgeous, and the atmosphere of the restaurant was wonderful!

It is bit on the more expensive side -but absolutely worth every dollar!

Thank you to all of the hosts, wait staff, chefs, and others!

We celebrated my daughter’s 10th birthday and they made her feel super special from the hostess greeting to the beautiful chocolate dessert with a candle. The food and service were amazing! And the neighborhood is not overly noisy, so eating outside was perfect. It was definitely a great choice for a beautiful night out! Thank you!

Dined for dinner Friday July 23, 2021. Shared the lobster ravioli (was excellent and not heavy. Had a tarragon white wine (not strong) sauce) and the ahi tuna (sliced, rare, also excellent. With a very mild wasabi aioli sauce. I normally pass on wasabi but this was great. Came with charred peppers and charred bok choy). Had the steak spring rolls as an appetizer and those were very enjoyable. Finished up with the NY style cheese cake. We normally don’t order cheese cake due to it being thick and heavy. The server, Ellie, who was very good, recommended it and assured us this isn’t your every day cheese cake and she was right. It was light and creamy. It was a great experience and an excellent meal. Service was great too. It was a wonderful dinner.

I ordered the Southwest Grain Bowl. The flavors and variety of ingredients were delicious. However, at least half of the steak chunks were very grisly and inedible. I would only order the bowl again if I could substitute chicken in place of the beef.

What a wonderful experience at this restaurant. Hospitality is top notch. The owner Peter was really making sure we had a special time and even offered suggestions for other restaurants and things to do as a native Bostonian. As a frequent business traveler I can confidently say this place is now firmly in my rotation.

The servers were excellent but on the evening we went it took over an hour n half for our dinner to arrive with a 7:30 pm seating so something was going on in the kitchen because the servers were trying hard to make everyone waiting happy. Nice restaurant and the food was good .

Service was poor. We were seated first and others seated around us later were served first. Took forever just to get a drink. Then the rest of our service got slower and slower. Food was excellent.

The $1 oysters brought us to Fin Point but our other food choices were very good. Loved the tuna tacos and lobster ravioli. The bar service was a little slow (white wine sangria very weak) but it was a dreary Saturday afternoon.

The experience is top notch — food, hospitality, ambiance, decor.
It is both a hidden gem AND a popular spot. I feel like the people who know FinPoint — for business meetings, after work cocktails or a date night dinner — are enormous fans. This spot is already popular but could easily be 10x more so.

Be sure to check out Tradesman — the incredible coffee shop (serves drinks) on the other side …

Had reservations and were promptly seated given a food menu and a glass of water. That was it. No one came back to give us a wine menu or take our food order after 15 minutes of sitting we flagged a waitress who gave us the wine list and never returned. 10 minutes later we left. Manager called 10 minutes later and asked us to give them another chance. You don’t get a second chance to make a first impression.

THE SPOT for $1 oysters. They shuck to order so although it takes a while, you don’t get any gross dry ones.
There is a limit of 12 per guest.***
