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
  • "Though the food, ambience and service was very good, the noise level made it all but impossible to hear each other in our party of 3. If you want to have a meaningful conversation, go elsewhere. TheBlue Fin is wonderful for a taste of Manhattan however."

  • "Great food and great service by Brian. The kale salad I've had and loved the chocolate chip cookies. "

  • "Had dinner with my friends in from Atlanta to celebrate our upcoming birthdays. Exceptionally good wine, gorgeous food and the perfect environment for a girlie catch-up. Another satisfactory evening at one of my favorite spots."

  • "I have eaten at many fine restaurants. Blue Fin was a disappointment. All three fish entrees were overcooked. Service was rushed - 45 minutes from when we sat down to when our plates were whisked away after appetizers and entrees. One appetizer was never served. I wouldn't return."
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "Very good variety in the menu, both simply prepared fish and choices that are a little more elaborate. Food was excellent, service was very friendly, but unobtrusive. Packed with tourists, but aren't all pre-theater spots?"
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "Blue Fin is conveniently located for many of our evenings so we have been dining there for years. I am happy to report that the food has been consistently excellent and the service is great. This time the restaurant was very full and we were seated in an odd dark location sort of between rooms. We expressed our discomfort and the staff was able to move us to a brighter, more comfortable spot. Well done! Thanks for another excellent meal."

  • "This restaurant right in the middle of the Theatre District has great food, and the staff is always aware you are likely theatre bound and insure you are never stressed about time remaining. It is my fall back restaurant in the City but I have never been disappointeed."
    Dined on 4/17/2014
  • "This was my second pre-theater lunch at Blue Fin and I was very disappointed and won't be coming back. The service was really and truly terrible. The waiter seemed to hate his job and was about as slow as a waiter could be without having people complain en masse. The food was OK - nothing special - passable salads. We had to wait 15 minutes to order, 20 minutes for the food to come, after eating we had to wait another 20 minutes for the coffees to come and another 20 minutes for the check to come - ridiculous! Next time I will try a local restaurant on a side street and avoid Blue Fin. It is a very, very disorganized restaurant and you're lucky if you get out on time for your show."

  • "Because the upstairs was closed, dining was a bit hectic today..not as smooth as usual."

  • "Picked Blue Fin only for fish selections..Loved finding out Location was so easy and around the corner from our Idina Menzel show! Sat upstairs .. Great food. " Towers" of fish are great!! Fast moving staff.. Work hard to get you in and out in time for your shows ! Will be back!"

  • "Good, fresh seafood in a bi-level, spacious setting. Attractive decor. Loved the brussel sprout caesar salad."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "Food and service were excellent. We sat upstairs where the noise level was moderate. Going through the lower level you could tell it was very energetic. We were going to a play and they were very mindful of that. I have paid a lot more for a lot less elsewhere."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "If you enjoy seafood this is the restaurant for you, good selection to choose from."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "You can't beat the location for pre- theater dining. The staff knows how to get you in and out without making you feel hurried. The spring rolls and dumplings were terrific and the simply grilled salmon was exactly that."
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "The Best Halibut every time I've eaten there. Excellent service. Great for "people watching" and having a drink at the street level bar."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "We had a great meal after seeing a Broadway Show. It was very good food in the perfect location."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "It's been more than a year snce we ate at the Blue Fin. Had theater tickets so we decided to try it again as it's location is very good. Sit upstairs for less noise. THe server was very good and our food was very good as well. I had red snapper and wife had Bornzino. Both were prepared very well and both were very good. Started with 1 dozen cherrystones, fresh and ice cold and wife has soup. Not as hot as she likes but they tood care of that and brought her a hot soup ASAP. Split homemade sorbet and headed to show. In at 530pm out by 720pm. More than enough time to catch any show. Seen a lot of people showing up at 6pm for pre theater. That's cutting it very close. We like to take our time with dinner."

  • "I took three students there for dinner while we were at a conference in New York City. The restaurant experience was first class all the way. Wonderful food, great service. It was a really outstanding dining experience. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!"

  • "Go to Blue Fin often before the theater (and sometimes late since it's open). Delicious sushi and fresh seafood dishes. Service is prompt and often there is too much time before theater starts!"

  • "Friend recommended it and our experience there was great. Great location, good food & great service!"
    Dined on 4/9/2014
  • "Best part of this restaurant is that you can usually Get a table because it is so large. Fish is wonderful And they accommodated all sorts of special "No this or that." Only drawback was the noise."
    Dined on 4/9/2014
  • "We keep going back to Blue Fin since they give us one of the corner tables in one of the side upstairs rooms. It is very quiet there and we are able to talk while eating the excellent food before the theatre. They always make sure we get to the theatre on time."
    Dined on 4/8/2014
  • "Hard to believe that in the heart of Times Square is such an amazing restaurant! It surpassed my expectations on ambiance and quality of food. We had breakfast and dinner there. Both I highly recommend. You will not be disappointed."
    Dined on 4/8/2014
  • "I was in Manhattan with some friends and we were in the mood for sushi. Picked this place because it had a lot of positive reviews. I don't really have anything negative to say about the place but it wasn't exactly great either. We should have expected that Times Square would be a place for touristy places and not necessarily food of the highest quality. Waiter was pleasant, the hostess was pleasant, the food was ok. Cool looking place and very busy, which is good. I don't know that I would go again or recommend it. A friend from Manhattan joined us and said "locals don't really eat at Times Square" so maybe that is the key."
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "The Blue Fin is our favorite spot in the theatre district. The variety of the menu is great and everything we have chosen has been excellent. The wait staff is very pleasant and accommodating."
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "Had another great brunch. Our waiter was excellent - very friendly and knowledgable of the menu."
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "Our first night in NY we ate at Blue Fin because seafood met our dietary restrictions. I had the shrimp dumplings and my friend the short rib for appetizers. Both were excellent. We also had halibut with gnocchi and mushrooms for mains. Delicious but a fairly small portion of fish for the price. Of course it is NY and Times Square so what can you expect."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "Great place for the pre and post theater crowd or anyone looking for great seafood. Modern ambiance with good service. Would go back again and again."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "I like coming here for lunch on weekdays when it is not very crowded. Bar scene gets busier in the evening. The Blue Fin martini is delicious."
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "I try to go to Blue Fin as often as I can. Food is always fabulous, service is impeccable and they always make sure we are good on time for a show!"
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "We had a 6:45 p.m. reservation. We got stuck on a train and didn't arrive until 7:15 p.m. We had tickets to see a Broadway show at 8 p.m. Instead of brushing us aside, they immediately seated us, took our drink and dinner order and had the food out 20 minutes later. The service was incredible. The food was delicious (specifically, the steamed shrimp dumplings and halibut), and we were able to get to the show on time!"
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "My friend and I came for lunch before a Saturday matinee. I had viewed the menu online and perhaps I missed something about the lunch menu only being available during the week. However, we both found some fabulous selections on the brunch menu. The staff was extremely courteous and attentive. Our food was served promptly. The atmosphere and decor were great. We enjoyed everything about our visit. I will definitely be back!"
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Varied Brunch menu - always enjoy this restaurant!"

  • "This is my second time at this restaurant. The first time was for Restaurant Week. The food was so good and the service excellent so I decided to bring one of my other friends one day after work before we went to a Broadway play. Again the service and food was excellent."
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "Blue Fin came highly recommended for a pre theatre dining venue. The location and ambiance are great. The service was excellent. The food was good, but my entrée was not even warm when it was served. Overall it was good, but could have been better if the food was hot when served"
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "The food, service, and atmosphere are fantastic. The location makes it so easy to have a great meal and leisurely stroll to the theatre less than a half block away. We will be back!"
