A word from Blue Fin - New York
Set in the sleek W Hotel Times Square setting, Blue Fin oohs and aahs its audience with a prominent raw bar, extensive sushi menu and much more! Unwind at either of Blue Fin's two bars and sip a seasonal cocktail or glass of wine from the 400+ bottle wine list. Up early for a matinee or just on your way to the office? Blue Fin gets the early riser going with smoothies and fresh squeezed juices, in addition to power-packed breakfast offerings featuring farm-fresh ingredients. To create this two-story, 400-seat dining spectacle in the epicenter of the most exciting city in the world, design firm Yabu Pushelberg provided original features as an expansive sparkling wall of highly polished mirror, glowing resin tables, and a floating staircase that leads to live music upstairs.

Diner Reviews
  • "We keep returning to Blue Fin because of the crisp, attractive decor, attentive service, diverse menu selections and consistently delicious food."
    Dined on 8/26/2014
  • "BlueFin is always a go to for me. I love the sushi selections as well as the salads. I always have a healthy lunch option. We will always come back to BlueFin."
    Dined on 8/26/2014
  • "Three for lunch. Service was spotty. No bread. Took nearly 25 minutes to get food to table. I have had better experiences but still not bad. Staff always pleasant though. Interesting that there is never the same host staff, never welcomed back. Not that it really makes a difference as I always come back. See you again soon."

  • "I took my girlfriend here on a date. After seeing Kinky Boots, we were starving and she had no idea what to expect. After walking to Blue Fin after the show, we were beyond happy with the amazing food, constant and friendly service, and perfect atmosphere. This was a perfect date night location."
    Dined on 8/24/2014
  • "Dish completely replaced, not just reheated, with genuine apologies and a small dessert gift bag to take home as a way to say sorry. Overall, a surprisingly nice place to dine before or after the theater in the middle of Tine Square."
    Dined on 8/22/2014
  • "This restaurant being next door to one of my favourite hotels- #W, makes it one that I frequent whenever I'm in the city and they have never disapointed me. What ever you occasion, simply go or preferably make a RSVP (Open Table), you would be pleased."

  • "I had dinner on Tuesday at Blue Finn and was happy with the service we received."
    Dined on 8/19/2014
  • "My guest was an elderly 87-year gentleman- doesn’t get out often/hard of hearing so it’s a treat when we do. Our intention was a special introduction and to celebrate my engagement but the noise level was unbearable, no one can hear each so we really did not get down to why we went out that evening or enjoy. It was like being at a diner nothing special, not the experience we expected for almost $200 and car service. The manager was informed and sent over some soy beans- edamame as a compliment really! We would have appreciated if he sincerely checked in on us instead. After all, customers are the reason they have a job. 2/5 times here with an issue."
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "You need to advertise more clearly on your outdoor poster that the price of the entree at brunch includes a cocktail and coffee/tea. It's not evident. I find Blue Fin to be better priced than even the local diners' brunch and there is no comparison with the food and ambiance one gets a Blue Fin."
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "The food was okay nothing special for the price. The neighborhood is hectic on a Friday night, I do not recommend if you are not into large crowds. The waitress disappeared at the end of the night and I had to run her down for the check and to give her out card, twice!"

  • "Four of us had dinner here recently on a Friday night. This was my third visit since May. Started with East/West & Raspberry Point Oysters, Californication Roll, Tempura Shrimp and went on to mains of Shrimp & Lobster Spring Rolls with Shrimp Dumplings, the Cod and the Sesame Tuna. All very, very good. Enjoyed a bottle of Chezatte Sancerre with our meal. Desserts included a selection of sorbets (mango lime, prickly pear & cantaloupe) and caramel popcorn, accompanied by a glass of Caposaldo Moscato dessert wine. (Only negative was that I ordered my tuna medium rare but it was more medium and over cooked. Will stick to rare from now on.) Total for dinner including tax, before tip, came to $290."

  • "Skip Red Lobster. This is a much better option for seafood and conveniently located near the Theater District. Seafood tower was great. Big enough to handle groups but the tourist trade seems to steer clear, thankfully. Could be the prices, but you get what you pay for, high quality and good service."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "Seated immediately. We never felt rushed. Waiter made great suggestions. Definitely will return"
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "the service was a little slow. maybe we should've explained that we were on a lunch break. but the server was lovely. we asked for suggestions and she was very helpful about that and concerned that we were happy with our choices. all-in-all good food, but my biggest complaint is that there were flies, more than one and we had to shoo them away a few times. went with a co-worker and this was a tremendous turn off."

  • "My boyfriend and I really enjoyed this place for lunch!"
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "We made a 5:15 reservation, but got there early. they sat us immediately and was I glad we made the reservation. Getting towards 5:30 and after the place was jumping, everyone going to the theater. It was restaurant week, so we opted for the 3 course menu. Delicious! Dessert was included which was a plus, but not coffee. The only disappointment, they offered you complimentary wine on the special, but we don't drink, so we asked for soda, which they then charged us for. Thought that was a little tacky."
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "We were looking for a decent quick lunch in the Times Square area and were able to book Blue Fin. The food was good, service ok, and price reasonable for midtown NYC. Just what we wanted."
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "The restaurant doesn't give you cheap ingredients and uninspiring for the restaurant menu like many other places do. The service is very quick and friendly. The food tastes like it should in its price range and can see that the chef actually did put some thought into creating the menu for restaurant week. Very good experience."
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "The crab roll and cod fish were delicious. The service was great and accommodating."
    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "3 stars because the food was okay, the costumer service was okay and the drinks were okay!. But if you are visiting New York and you are looking for something out of the ordinary this is definitely not the place to go."
    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "Post theater delight! We arrived after seeing The Lion King with two hungry, exhausted, allergy-ridden grandchildren. We were figuratively embraced with warmth, care, and precision by our outstanding waiter. He brought our well crafted sushi, fresh delicious oysters, perfectly grilled shrimp, and well constructed cocktails (for the adults!) to our table swiftly and accurately. The complex ordering was executed patiently and perfectly. I have attended several large and small group dinners. They do a great job. Consistent well prepared fresh seafood. One of my top go to spots in Times Square. The bar has the best people watching on the planet...and great cosmos too!"
    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "I go to Blue Fin a number of times a year. It was always reliable and perfect for business lunches. This week it was not. It may have been the day (Matinee Wednesday) or just a fluke but the service was very slow and the food was not seasoned well. There are better choices in the neighbor"
    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "We were taking our three granddaughters to theatre and celebrating their birthdays. Timing was good, birthdays were acknowledged, everyone enjoyed!"
    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "The main course was served at same time as appetizer within 5 minutes of ordering. The restaurant was not full but they began clearing while we were still eating. The waiter forgot to ask for my meal without cheese. The good was good but salty. The service was unprofessional. If we did not eat slowly and order coffee we would have been done in 30 minutes. No apologies for the goofs."
    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "Every time I am in the area near the Blue Fin restaurant I always go there for a great meal, great service and a lovely environment. It is certainly one of the best restaurants in the theatre district and one is always assured of a delicious meal. Many thanks."
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "Right at the southwest corner of Broadway and 47th, this location is perfect for dinner pre- theater when your time is limited. We used the restaurant week menu which altered slightly from what was listed. The spicy crab maki had real crab, was mildly spicy and delicious. The peach shortcake had a light, flaky biscuit with whipped cream, very important to the success of a shortcake I believe. I had the cod off the restaurant week menu as was disappointed. I felt the spicy barbecue sauce did not blend well with the purée underneath. However, the cod itself was melt in your mouth good. My dining companion had the salmon which was flaky and fresh and delicious."

  • "The food was not good, at all. We will not be back."

  • "We enjoyed a delightful dinner here! It is right off of Times Square and has a lovely interior of crystal and ocean colors. Amazing full sushi and sashimi bar - so many choices that my husband and sister-in-law found it hard to make up their minds for their appetizers! I loved my Tempora Shrimp with Mango/Yuzu sauce and steak filet. My husband enjoyed the red snapper - Do come here you will love it!!!"

  • "We recently had dinner at Blue Fin at the W in Times Square before seeing a Broadway Show. It was excellent. They have a nice selection of wines by the glass, and the sushi was imaginative and delicious. I would highly recommend the oysters (six luscious ones...3 east, 3 west), charred baby octopus, sesame crusted bigeye tuna and for dessert the chocolate molten cake. The view of Times Square is more than enough entertainment!"

    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "We loved this spot for a great meal prior to seeing a show! The location is perfect in the heart of Times Square and the food was delicious! There signature cocktail, the Blue Fin, is unique and tasty!"

  • "Reservations were honored on time, service was timely as well."
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "To be fair, the server was friendly, but she was slow and not very knowledgeable about the menu. The food was fine. Extraordinary, no, but the fish was moist and prepared with nice favors. I liked that they offered multigrain rolls and would suggest they offer brown rice as an option to white rice. The restaurant is attractive and overall the experience was pleasant but not tremendously memorable."
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "The food was excellent. Our only complaint was the cooking. I asked for very well done salmon and my friend asked for medium salmon. Mine was medium and my friend's was rare."
