2008 'BONS' Readers Choice Award: Best Outdoor Dining

Boston Magazine, 2008

...The waterfront teems with classic seafood restaurants, but Finz on Salem Harbor puts a modern spin on the New England standard. Purple walls are accented by porthole-like glasswork, and comfy couches are perfect for lounging while nibbling on a menu of tasty seafood and well-chosen wines. On weeknights, a large, square bar area fills with locals waiting to dine on thick tuna steaks marinated in hoisin sauce and sautéed shrimp over gnocchi. And in warm weather, there’s no better patio to slurp down wasabi-Stoli oysters and frosty beers...

"Great Ate" for the North Shore: Oyster Bar

...Finz takes full advantage of a waterfront location on Salem’s Pickering Wharf. Whether sipping colorful martinis out on the patio or slurping oysters by the fireplace, the Atlantic Ocean is never out of site. The spacious, modern dining room gives the suburban spot a big city feel, yet the prices are quite moderate for the high quality and cool creativity. Phantom’s favorite dishes include Finz’ famous Stoli-wasabi oysters, the spicy Buffalo calamari, and baked stuffed lobster with crab, shrimp, and scallop in the stuffing...

The Boston Globe North February 2004
...for those of you who aren’t familiar with their great food, extensive wine list and enchanting atmosphere, you are in for a treat...From the oversized couches, which are positioned perfectly for conversation in front of the fire, to the soaring windows that open out to the Wharf, it is an invitation for you to stay awhile...

The New York Times, September 2001
...The owners had transformed a depressing and tired-looking restaurant into a bright airy space with a generous brick fireplace bar and handsome clean wooden interior. A wall of windows looks out onto Salem harbor…a number of dishes we ordered were memorable. The New England clam chowder was creamy and smoky, with nice chunks of clams and grilled corn. Another starter, tuna carpaccio, was quite tasty, especially with its Asian vegetable salad drizzled with a miso-soy dressing...

The Boston Globe, June 2001
...the ambiance is cool and clean...didn’t send the fish out swimming upstream in a pool of red wine sauce. The treatment was restrained so that the so that the fish’s flavor shone-not too plain but beautifully simple...
