Everything was amazing!!! Best meal I have had in a long time. The seafood platter was so delicious I loved everything on it. We ordered so many different dishes and finished everything to the point we were almost licking our plates! Will be coming back here next time we are in queenstown.

We were seated at a nice table and was not treated differently when we told the gentlemen we were here for First Table. Service was great and staff were all friendly. This is not the first time we dine at Finz and last time we were in a bigger group which service was also amazing. This time, only the two of us ordered a seafood platter which was enormous and we could not finish! We even had to take food away.

Amazing experience. Super friendly staff. We took our baby as well. The staff helped with the baby chair and put our stroller in their storeroom. Brought some colouring activity too. The foods are super. We live in Queenstown and regret haven't tried this place before. Good variety of food.

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!

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.

Brilliant, friendly service with a smile. We had an entree of oysters (nice but not as big as bluff oysters), seafood platter (we all loved) and the half crayfish (slightly small but yum). Plus a delicious south island ice tea for all. Totally recommend. We also were seated right by the window so could look out at the lake and watch the people pass by. Great spot. Will definitely be returning.

Really great restaurant with lovely views and nice staff. I had the salmon which was beautiful but even the non fish options were delicious - we had the mushroom rissotto and the the truffle mash potatoes which were also fantastic. I was also impressed with the wine menu as there was plenty of choice. We're locals so we'll definitely be back again :)

Beautiful scenery, with the earnslaw pulling in while we were eating our meals. The food was delicious, fresh and beautiful to look at, we got great photos and had the best time. Our server Alex was the best, he knew the menu well and gave us great recommendations, we did not regret! All the staff were friendly and the food came pretty quickly. Overall, best seafood menu we’ve had in Queenstown in a while, we left happy and satisfied awesome place, highly recommend Finz if your after yummy seafood dishes, can’t wait to go again!

We had a great table right at the window overlooking the Earnslaw Wharf. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive. And the food was delicious! My friend’s risotto was outstanding and by blue cod was also great! I would recommend this place and we will definitely be back. I am local and it was the first time I had ever been, I will for sure recommend to our guests!

We took our boys for early dinner at Finz and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The kids fish and chips was a very generous portion, they loved it.
Our meals of tuna and monkfish were excellent highly recommend. The service was quick which is great when dining with kids. We will definitely be coming back again.

This restaurant has an awesome location! We were able to watch the steam boat come and go, and look out over the water. You don’t want to miss the baby octopus or salt and pepper squid entrees. They were amazing! I had the lamb shank and the meat literally fell of the bone, couldn’t have been cooked better. I highly recommend you give this place a go! You will not be disappointed.

We had a very enjoyable early dinner at Finz. I chose the pan-fried Grouper which was excelllent, my son tried the sirloin which was also good, but perhaps would have been better without already being covered in horseradish sauce - and my wife opted to have two starters, the salt and pepper squid and the seafood chowder. Both the starters were generous portions, so much so that I was lucky enough to be able to sample the squid which was delightful, much better than the usual routine that so many restaurants offer... With attentive service and a gorgeous view of the Lake and the returning TSS Earnslaw, Finz deserves its reputation as a high quality seafood restaurant, and if the horseradish came separately - great steaks too!

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

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
