Having lived in Queenstown for a number of years we had somehow never made it into Finz until tonight, and in hindsight, I can't understand why we hadn't before. It was excellent - the seafood platter was more than enough for the two of us and the wines were well priced. It's always a pleasure being seated by the lake, so we loved being seated by the big windows. A cheeky dessert at the end was indulgent and a perfect way to finish. Highly recommended

I wasn’t sure I wanted to go out for dinner as I’m trying to stick to a new nutrition plan however when I saw the seared tuna on the menu with zoodles I couldn’t resist. The food and service were both perfect, my partner and I had a lovey night. It’s great when you can go out and enjoy a healthy meal and even better when it means you don’t have to break the diet to do so. Will definitely be coming back!

24.5.'19 - Terry and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The food was well presented - cooked to our expectations. I (Mary) had food sensitivities and they catered to my needs - which was great. We recommend this dining experience to anybody and everybody. The staff were excellent and very helpful. The Restaurant is located on Steamer Wharf. We had a table inside, overlooking the dock (where the Earnslaw ties up) which overlooked the Queenstown Bay and to The Remarkables behind. It was our '1st. - 'First Table' Dining Experience. And it won't certainly be our last! ('Jess' from First Table was very helpful.) So thank you everyone for making this a memorable dinner for my hubby's birthday (which was the following day-but tonight was a 'better night' to go for us - no other plans.) Both experiences were excellent 'First Table' -and 'dining at Finz Seafood and Grill' and definitely recommend 'both'. Sincerely Mary and Terry Joyce (Queenstown).

about or 5th or 6th time here and it's perfect every time, I'd messaged the night before to say it was my partners 30th if they could do anything special, they offered deserts which I declined as she isn't much of a sweet tooth, on arrival the manager must had taken note and gave us a couple of glasses of champagne and heated up our 9 months old food up , then our two year old had a game of Frisbee with her sauce bowl and the floor which the staff made no fuss about and cleaned it up. 11/10

Food was okay but wouldn’t be rushing back in a hurry. Crayfish was overcooked, pork belly skin wasn’t crunchy, steak was good.

I enjoyed my time there on first table, we were a party of 4 so always hard to cater to everyone’s likes however your menu read that it would and that’s why we booked. Food was good but I don’t think I would rush back. The waitress recommended steak for both the boys in our group and they were both seriously fatty and chewy. They did eat it and didn’t want to complain considering it was half price however if we paid full we probably would have! The overall experience was good however that was a major let down.

We had our very first First Table experience at Finz and it was fantastic. The food was so well prepared and the oysters were great! The service and atmosphere were also cordial. We will not hesitate to come back again.

We went to Finz last Sunday and it was truly amazing!!! The service was the best, all the staff is extremely nice and helpful, knowledgeable on the pairing wine/food as well. Then the food, just no words to describe it, I think our little favorites were the shrimp tacos and the mussels!!! I would highly recommend it AND go again!

We had the salmon and mussels in white wine. Salmon is juicy and delicious but the portion is not big. Mussels in white wine is so good. This restaurant is definitely a must go in queenstown.

We had a very good evening. Great location, we were able to see lots of happy visitors and locals enjoying lakeside activities. Good service and food I was delighted to have crayfish although we felt it to be close to minimum legal size. Delicious all the same. Would definitely return.

Finz is hands down my favourite restaurant in Queenstown, I love going with First Table because I can indulge in oysters, crayfish and truffle mash, yet still afford to pay rent (and in this town that’s saying something)
It’s always fresh, cooked to perfection, phenomenal flavours that don’t over power the natural beauty of NZ’s seafood. And the setting itself is stunning. Seated next to the window overlooking the lake. Literally cannot complain.

We have been all around New Zealand for the past 4 weeks and this was undoubtfully the best dining experience we've had. The food was prepared with love and served with generous portions. A rare treat was finding rack of lamb and very tasty salads. This was also the first time for Salmon from Steward Island and this was undescribably delicious.

What a dining experience from start to finish at Finz. Located on the shores of Lake Wakatipu, the venue provides amazing views across the lake with the infamous TSS Earnslaw gracing you with her presence during your dining experience.

Staff were all attentive and friendly and were well equipped to answer any questions we had regarding the menu. Unlike some other restaurants on First Table, no dishes were excluded from the menu which made for a refreshing change.

We had two entrees to start which were the crab & cod cakes (3) and crispy shrimp tacos (2). We found this was a great amount to share as an entree and both dishes were incredibly tasty and well presented. For main we enjoyed the whole baked Southern Sole and Sesame rolled Tuna loin with 2 side dishes including a small beetroot salad and dauphinoise potatos with Sage. Again, everything was wonderfully presented and tasted great. Food service was prompt without feeling rushed.

We ended our dinner with a shared sticky date pudding, which I cannot recommend enough - the hokey pokey ice cream was phenomenal and we will certainly be returning to this restaurant for more!

Thanks to Finz and the team to a wonderful evening.
