    We had a group of 14, and the service was great. Good wine list, we ordered a couple of each appetizer for the table, and split about six deserts after dinner. The group loved it. We were staying at the Marriott Marquis, so the location was perfect.

    This restaurant is great for pre-theater or for that matter any time you want a good meal. For the first time I ordered the spring rolls; they were crispy and delicious. My husband ordered the chopped salad which was equally delicious. For the main course, the Branzino was exceptionally good; cooked just right. As always, the waiter gave impeccable service. Blue Fin is definitely a winner and we would definitely recommend it to friends and family.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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!
