Summary: Sophisticated seafood with a global flair.

GW Fins stands out in the heart of the city's vibrant dining scene, not as a typical seafood joint but as a sophisticated haven for seafood enthusiasts. The restaurant tantalizes with an array of globally-sourced fish and shellfish, each dish crafted with a unique twist that's rare in the region. Revel in the wood-grilled grouper, jalapeño-glazed Scottish salmon, or indulge in the Alaskan halibut partnered with sea scallops and a decadent Maine lobster risotto. Open your culinary adventure with the blue crab pot sticker appetizer, and don't miss the blackened swordfish draped in chili hollandaise. Even the vegetables shine here, like the wood-grilled asparagus bathed in lemon olive butter. For dessert, the chocolate mousse bombe with raspberry coulis is a no-brainer. The wine list defies convention, boldly pairing robust reds with delicate seafood. The dining room itself is a feast for the eyes, boasting a cheerful, seafood-themed decor that's both colorful and welcoming, all housed in a chic, updated warehouse setting that's designed to dampen noise and enhance the dining experience.
