This restaurant serves a very wide range of excellent, well prepared and served nicely food. The entire staff is very friendly and obviously has been trained to address every detail to make the experience enjoyable.
Location is fabulous for those wanting to experience the activity at the hub of the theatre district, yet once inside, it is quiet and a well decorated ambience.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAn Oasis in Time SquareThe food here is a taste delight no matter what you order.

Would have been nice if the restaurant asked if we were celebrating a special occasion.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMBrunch GemHave been many times for Brunch - great choices, reasonably priced, staff always congenial.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMPre theater brunch hard to beatWe've been to Blue Fin many times for sunday brunch. The food is always good quality and it is very good value considering the location on Times Square. One thing we we have found on several occassions is that the food is not always hot. This time we discovered why. Food seemed to come out of the kitchen on trays, was then uncovered and waited for staff to deliver to the tables. In our case my wife's entree sat for 5mins. We pointed this out to a manager who was very apologetic and immediately went into the kitchen and shortly afterwards, food stopped sitting out before service to the table. We were rewarded with a free desert. Now that is what I call service!!! Hopefully this is manintained in future. We will see next time!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMI went with my partner andI went with my partner and loved every minute of my stay..5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat restaurant!I only visit NYC 1x/year, my boyfriend & I loved your restaurant. We really wanted to eat at your restaurant and ran into a scheduling conflict.... we had tickets to an 8pm show but did not arrive at Blue Fin until 6:50pm. The server did an excellent job - he said we had plenty of time! We ordered and enjoyed appetizers and an entree and cocktails and made it to our show on time. Everything about Blue Fin is A+ , we will definitely be back again next year and will recommend to friends!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMLocated in the heart of TimesLocated in the heart of Times Square and in the fabulous W Hotel, I brought my teen daughter here for a birthday dinner - the food was wonderful. I had the sushi and she had the filet mignon which they cooked exactly as she requested. Staff was courteous and very friendly, made us feel very comfortable. Beautiful restaurant with very cool decor. Large enough for groups and parties without feeling crowded. We loved it so much we returned the next night for dinner again. Equally delicious and the managers remembered it was her birthday! Highly recommend.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAlmost Perfect!We were seated right away and the host fulfilled my request for a corner table in a friendly and courteous manner. The white wine the waiter suggested was tasty and light. Our raw clams and jumbo shrimp cocktail were sumptuous, and my halibut, gnocchi et al was delicious. The waiter was very kind and accommodating. The ONLY problem was that my dining companion's filet mignon, ordered medium, at first came out well done. After sending it back, it returned the second time too rare. Finally, the third time, it came back medium (and tasted great). The waiter and the manager were both apologetic, and truly worked make everything right. The atmosphere was modern and classy, and the profiteroles and even the bread were fab. We'll be back!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ServiceWe have enjoyed dinning at Blue Fin many times & have never been disappointed. Service is exceptional, but not overbearing. Being gluten free its always nice to have a restaurant that can accommodate your needs & they always do. The servers are very knowledgeable. The food is flavorful & cooked to perfection with just the right touch of sauce if called for. The wine list is well above the average & the cocktails are perfection.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMwow!Everything was great. From the friendly reception,excellent service, gorgeous decor, great location on Times Square and the seafood was excellent.

We have eaten here many times (dinner, lunch and brunch)and the food is always excellent. This time we stopped in for lunch on a Thrusday, and while busy, it did not have the overcrowding you can find on a Wednesday with the Matinee crowd. We shared 3 sushi rolls and then the shrimp tacos. All were delicous.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMBlue Fin is one of our topBlue Fin is one of our top go to places for pre-theater. Great food, service and location. Reasonable prices.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMHad dinner at Blue Fin beforeHad dinner at Blue Fin before a Thursday night Broadway show. Was able to make reservations easily for 5:45. Arrived on time and was promptly seated on the 2nd level. The decor is very nice with table placement providing the ability to have a comfortable conversation. Wait service was very good. Attentive but not intrusive.

And they serve your order soon!4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and attentive serviceAlways enjoy our trips to the Blue Fin. Two in our party had brunch, and two had lunch. The fish is, as always, perfectly prepared. Love that they give you a complimentary Bellini or Mimosa with brunch. Makes it that much more festive. Love the offerings here for brunch- not your typical french toast/omelette selections.
Specials of the day were delicious and the special dessert- a pineapple upside down cake- was excellent.
Our server, Brian was very attentive but gave us the time we needed to enjoy our meal in a leisurely fashion.
Will definitely return again.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMOur brunch at Blue Fin wasOur brunch at Blue Fin was actually excellent. I had been before and this time was before a matinee. Our fritattas were perfectly cooked, mimosas plentiful and free, and the waiter was helpful but not hovering.
My only objection, and this was very different from last time, was the noise level and general casualness of the place. I remembered it as a much more elegant, quiet place. Tablecloths might cushion the noise--maybe they are used only at dinner?4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMNo negativesGreat food and service, very convenient location for going to the theatre.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Restaurant in Times Square!We have eaten at Blue Fin several times, and we are never disappointed There were four in our party, and we shared appetizers...the tuna tartar is heavenly. We each had fish for dinner, and all were simply divine. Dessert was also shared, including a cheese course, which was truly scrumptious! There is no doubt we will be back again...and again...and again!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food & service were great.The food & service were great.

The sushi was delicious and very fresh. You would never know you're on in the heart of Times Square. Try to get there early and sit in the room upstairs in the back. It's not as noisy as the front room. Great experience!4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMUpstairs is the place to sitUpstairs is the place to sit for dinner.

But we returned the next day to do it all again since it had been such a lovely experience.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
