Diner Reviews
  • "Came here for a quiet Sunday dinner. Food was very slow to come out to and arrived one by one leaving one of people in our party waiting for her portion half an hour past the first dish's deliverance. Food was generally good, though had to constantly ask for additional condiments (ginger, soy sauce) as every addition was too small for our party. Blow fish- you gotta step it up a notch!"

  • "The night started out with some great appetizers, and as our main sushi started to come out the jazz funk band FuZe started to play. By the end of the night we were singing along and dancing to the energetic beats of the band. It is well worth the night out for some great food and engaging fun!"

  • "Not my cup of tea. Prefer real sushi not sushi that masks the fish with too much rice and flavoured mayo. Tasted fine for what it was. Service was not great. Only one girl working on mother's day. Took a long time to get service."

  • "Went for lunch with my cousin and it took an hour and a half for lunch which doesn't work during the work week. The food was good, but there was only one waitress that we saw so the service was terrible. "

  • "25% off because we got there before 6pm, was not expected so it was a nice surprised ! Good sushi and service but there was no one else in the restaurant because it was too early. "

  • "Best serice ever at a sushi restaurant. Lots of variety for people who don't eat raw fis so my husband and i could oth enjoy a wonderful beautifully presented rolls."

  • "I have dined before with clients and love the variety of sushi dishes! It is a little hidden gem!"
    Dined on 2/12/2014
  • "The price tag may seem expensive but you get huge rolls and big pieces of fish for the price! I'm really not sure I've had a piece of sashimi so big before. Plus everything is delicious! Likely some of the best sushi we've had in a while! Our server was very friendly and food came out quickly. Definitely going back!"
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "The sushi was good but not outstanding, especially considering the price. Would rather go to Sushi Hiro and pay a little less for better quality. Service was slow but friendly. We went in at lunch and there was only two other tables occupied. Regardless, our food probably took 25 to 30 minutes to arrive."

  • "Very well presented and fresh presentation. Excellent service! Small restaurant for those who don't like big crowds. Great for lunch or dinner gathering!"

  • "Blowfish is a great sushi place with lots of variety and food for everyone. Lots of unique rolls that are great for sampling. I have been there 4-5 times and will definitely go back."
    Dined on 10/4/2013
  • "Darkly lit restaurant. Fortunately, one of us had a flashlight so we could read the menu. Background music was techno and very annoying. Not a great place to go for dinner, even though the food is very good. On a Friday night, only a small handful of customers were in the restaurant for dinner. I would recommend this place for lunch, but not an evening out."
    Dined on 9/27/2013
  • "The sushi was very fresh. We had a couple of the rolls suggested by the server...they were very creative and very tasty. The service was attentive and friendly. The food was delivered in a timely manner...we had a very enjoyable lunch."

  • "Overpriced slightly above average sushi and rolls. Restaurant was empty. No atmosphere."
    Dined on 8/29/2013
  • "Been to blowfish multiple times, it's always great. This time they had a DJ outside, but when it started to rain they brought all the equipment inside and played at the same outside volume, it was way too loud to keep conversation. Food and service was great though."
    Dined on 6/1/2013
  • "Some of the sushi was ok, but about half the stuff we got was not good. It could be that I am accustomed to a more traditional style of sushi, but there were some flavours that were very off-putting, or some rolls that lacked flavour all together."
    Dined on 5/3/2013
  • "The sushi was very good but you definitely pay for it, but I would also say definitely worth it you aren't going to get bad fish here"
    Dined on 4/19/2013
  • "The food took too long, considering it was not full. It lacked the quality I expected."
    Dined on 3/22/2013
  • "I really enjoyed the food, and it is nice without being overly expensive. Would return!"
    Dined on 3/15/2013
  • "Bones in the sushi, to not as fresh as it could be. Not sure if they are just getting rid of old sushi for the 5-6 discount time ... but the sushi could of been better. Also they almost forgot it was a birthday ... had to remind them...to bring out some candles even though I reserved and wrote it down as comments in the reservations ... but really nice and kind service. I dont mean to sound so picky. Place was pretty cool its just I know it could be better...and my comments are meant to be as constructive only..."
    Dined on 3/12/2013
  • "Average sushi. The maki rolls were not great and the sashimi slices were small. If it weren't for the special 15$ Big Taste deal it is not worth it"
    Dined on 3/8/2013
  • "We decided to try this restaurant after reading rave reviews on Avenue Mags' Calgary Best Restaurant. We tried it on a warm Friday Night and surprisingly found the restaurant empty. 1. Ambiance - Fair2. Service - Poor. There was only 1 waitress and the service was lousy and slow. 3. Food - Fair. Not worth for the $$$ paid. We went to Zipang a couple of weeks ago and found it much better and appetizing. The Green Tea served was almost cold and was poured from the same flask over and over again.I had a special night planned for my spouse who loves Sushi and the experience left us dissatisfied. Wont dare to go back there again."

  • "Food was amazing. however, drinks were overly priced. Ive lived in different parts of the world been to the best restaurants, never had to pay 11.50 dollars for a glass of wine."
    Dined on 1/19/2013
  • "First time there and we had the lunch special. Dishes were beautifully presented and delicious. I'll be going back there again."
    Dined on 11/30/2012
  • "Not as good as I expected given the reviews I read about it. Sushi was not the worst I've had, though I had expected a much better experience. Not recommended."
    Dined on 11/7/2012
  • "Fantastic service and incredible food! Our waitress was nothing but helpful making recommendations and making us feel like we were VIP's. Thank you Blowfish for an amazing evening and we will definitely be back."
    Dined on 9/14/2012
  • "Food was okay. Went for lunch during work. The sushi was great, however when my girlfriend asked for no fish eggs, they put them in, and then it took about20 minutes to get her a new roll. As well, my meat was over cooked, and the miso soup had a very fishy taste and smell. I would recomend their sushi, but do not expect fast or friendly service"
    Dined on 8/24/2012
  • "Small portions, big prices. Save your cash and go somewhere else."
    Dined on 8/16/2012
  • "The sushi was better than expected for Calgary but not outstanding (found it a little salty). The service was amazing..one of the best waitresses I've ever had...and looks like at night they have a live DJ which would have been cool."
    Dined on 7/25/2012
  • "The restaurant was so cold they it was difficult to enjoy our food."
    Dined on 7/24/2012
  • "The waitress was fantastic. She noticed that we were talking about the artwork on the walls and she told us a little about the artist and his work."

  • "Pricey but worth it for special occassions and great sushi in a landlocked province"
    Dined on 6/14/2012
  • "We let our server decide on what to order for us. She asked what we did not like, i.e. spicy, hot or whatever and, based on our input, she had the chef prepare a 4-course meal that was very good. The variety, quality, presentation and taste were above normal. Our server was exceptional and made excellent choices for our dining enjoyment."
    Dined on 5/12/2012
  • "The food was very good although I was worried when I entered the restaurant and found the ambience more to be like a bar than a restaurant. Fortunately, there wasn't a lot of people there otherwise the noise would be unbearable. It's too bad the bar ambience is so dominant as that likely reduces the probability that people just wanting to find a good restaurant will go to."
    Dined on 5/4/2012
  • "My date and I had the chef's Omakase and a few other things. We were impressed by the quality and unique selections on the menu, and everything was quite delicious. The service was pleasant, the decor is artful and vibrant, and the green tea was perfect. Our bill for 2 landed over $200, but for a really special occasion this place is worth it."

  • "a little too noisy. a little too dark. Food need a little refinement."
