Great Service!

Dined 3 days ago

Service was outstanding - from attention from the manager to our server and everyone else in addition! Food was excellent - generous portion sizes. Only concern at all would be the noise level. It was very loud but everyone was having a great time. Great location!

In a mall, but worth the trip

Dined on April 23, 2016

We went because it was #1 on TripAdvisor for seafood and our clients wanted seafood. We were not disappointed! Great service. Higher end in the price scale, but satisfying portions of everything. They don't scrimp! You can do full meals or dine tapas style. The staff all helps each other, so we were never waiting for anything we needed. Friendly and noise level was perfect for a business meeting.

Great starter restaurant when you are on vacation

Dined on April 21, 2016

We were looking for a restaurant on our first on vacation. The Big Fin more than satisfied with our different types of food tastes. The appetizers were great and the cocktails were tasty. Our main entrée's took an unusually amount of time but the Ribeye topped with the scallops was delicious at med well. They are very attentive to any food allergies and will accommodate them very well. The seafood dishes looked and tasted amazing . The chicken Marseilles presented well all in all the meal was great. The price of the meal was normal for a restaurant that can prepare quality meals in a upscale neighborhood . Valets were agreat ambassador to the type of atmosphere we were going to be in . Only improvement would be live music.

Enjoyed another dinner at Bi Fin where we prefer to eat on the outdoor patio. Love their calamari appetizer- enjoyed the crabmeat stuffed grouper and sesame Ahi tuna. PJ, our server, knew the menu well and was spot on with our dining choices.

vip
Dined on April 1, 2016

We have been to this location at least a dozen times. There is a great happy hour menu. On this occasion we had adults from age 22 to 81. The waiter was as surly as possible without violence. No knowledge, no service, no personality and no enjoyment for us. I think I will stick to the happy hour, the last few times we didn't we were disappointed.

Best seafood in Orlando

Dined on March 31, 2016

If you are looking to go out for a great seafood dinner go to Big Fin. Everything was excellent from staff, ambiance to food. The waiter suggested the grouper paired with crawfish and grits and a cajun sauce witch was unbelievably good. One of party had the seared Ahi and said it was the best that they ever had. The wedge can be split by at least 2 people. We at at many different seafood places during our week in Orlando and Big Fin was by far the best.

Nothing Special

Dined on March 26, 2016

there are a few restaurants in the area that have similar cuisine and quality. There isn't much to make this place standout. The food was pretty good. Though, again, nothing special. I can get King Crab legs for less than half the price, other places. The filet was a good quality of meat, but zero seasoning, so a little bland. The seafood pasta was good, but could have used some seafood.

Signature dish

Dined on March 20, 2016

Feel that the signature dish that was recommended was overcooked and lacked the quality, especially for cost of the dish. The fish was tough and not flakey. The crab topping was over powering the taste of the fish. There are better choices in the area for seafood. Will not return for amother visit.

High Expectation Not Met

Dined on March 19, 2016

Place looked very nice. It was a 3 generation celebration. Called and asked if they had Maine lobster and they said yes. We got there and was told they were out. Strike 1! Next we ordered oysters. Came out smelling pretty bad. The waiter relunctently took them back. No talk about replacing them or an apology. Strike 2! Instead of lobster we ordered Alaskan King Crab legs. $80 a pound. One order looked under weight. Asked them to weigh them. They were only 3/4 of a pound. Strike 3!!! A few snide remarks from the waiter and the token manager. Don't believe we'll ever return. And we're locals.

If you like seafood...

Dined on March 19, 2016

What a pleasant surprise! Our waiter Joe, a local, was awesome. He had a ton of good suggestions and was very accommodating. We had sushi and calamari for an app. Both were fantastic. I had grouper with crab on top for dinner (a must try and cooked perfectly). The hubby had surf and turf and that was yummy too. They could have a better wine list but it's not necessary. Outside seating was very nice and when we left around 7, the restaurant was packed - a good sign. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone in the area who wants a good meal.

We were surprised to learn that the restaurant was family owned and not a chain. We really enjoyed our evening there and hoped to go back if not during the remainder of our stay then on future trips to Orlando.
