A word from Bluefin
On any given night, you’ll likely find a celebration or two underway at this spacious downtown sushi lounge. Much of the restaurant’s seating is designed for large groups, and there’s even a unique private room where guests sit on floor pillows. Low blue lighting gives the place a soothing vibe. The menu offers treats for sushi aficionados, such as the Majik Mushroom roll (Kobe beef with warm truffle butter and mushroom salt) or the more traditional Hama-Kimchee (yellowtail topped with spicy kimchi). But picky kids (and the sushi-phobic) can find plenty to eat on the entrée menu, which features flatbreads, Steaks, and multiple seafood options. Bluefin also offers several brands of saké (both hot and cold) and a bar that serves food an hour after the restaurant side has closed. Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "We are fans of the sushi. The service is fantastic."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "My wife and I decided to stop here for dinner one night. We sat outside on the patio and what a BIG mistake. They only had one server for the ENTIRE patio which was full. Took us 30 minutes to even get noticed, and over an hour and a half to receive our food!"

  • "We frequent the Blue Fin but were disappointed with our visit this time. They were extremely busy since it was theater night and a Saturday! That paired to make the noise level such that it was difficult to have a conversation with my husband. who was right next to me. It truly was a madhouse. Our waiter was not very attentive and obviously stressed. When he brought coffee we had to ask for sweetner, then cream, then a spoon....all separate trips! Really!!! As for the food, although my pork roulade was tasty, the meat was dry and hard to cut. My husband was disappointed in the scallops this time. They usually are his favorites. It will be a while before we go back again. Next time we will try a week night!"

  • "If going to the Orpheum, this is a perfect choice for dining before the theater. Our server asked and accommodated us so we would leave on time. We had a huge platter of sushi that we enjoyed sharing. Delicious."

  • "I've been enjoying Bluefin now for a few years. It is a favorite spot for me and my girlfriends when we catch a show at the Orpheum. We usually stop in for drinks and dinner because I just love the ambiance and its location is very convenient. The drinks are yummy and the creme brulee is a personal favorite."

  • "I've been to a lot of Sushi places and this one is definitely in my top favorites! The food was excellent! The servers were on point and the portions were perfect :)"

  • "My 20 yr old daughter and I LOVE sushi, anything with an Asian flair. We dined outside, which was perfect and enjoyed the atmosphere very much. However, everything else was mediocre. So, some nights are better than others. I had a glass of their wine special ( on the bill it was listed as another wine at $2.00 more) We ordered a sushi roll for an appetizer; received it, had to ask for utensils/chopsticks And wait for them. My daughter's entre was missing its signature, drizzled sauce, my curry coconut noodles were a little dry and tasteless, but the veggies in it were very fresh! Our waiter must have been very busy inside, we never got a refill of water and it was quite warm ( the only drink my daughter ordered). Hit or miss, I guess. "

  • "What better can you say about a restaraunt? Bluefin is always good. Whether it's sushi or one of their delicious specials I have never been disappointed with my experience there. Atmosphere, service, and good are spot on. I especially love dining outside during pretty weather. "

  • "The sushi was very very good, but the delivery of it was extremely slow."

  • "My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary and this restaurant was one on our list to try. Everything was excellent from the appetizers to the drink selections. We sat up front just across from the sushi bar and my only complaint, which I did inform the manager about, was seeing one of the waitresses was eating from the asparagus bowl that the chefs used to prepare sushi dishes. It was very disconcerting to see her standing there putting her hands in the bowel and eating several spears. Thank goodness, I had already had my sushi roll prior to seeing her do this! "

  • "We had a blast at Bluefin! The server was awesome and the food was so tasty! First time trying grilled oysters and they were absolutely delicious!!! We had date night there with another couple and it was perfect! Darker lighting, waterfall and great noise level!! The sushi was the best and the drinks came cold."

  • "The food was delicious! We had sushi as well as meals from the menu. Everything was fresh and yummy! Our server anticipated our needs and was very amiable. We enjoyed our experience and wil return."

  • "Especially considering it is in Memphis where southern food rules. This place offers a nice variety of fresh salads, sushi, nigiri, amazing sushi rolls and also more standard dishes such as grilled salmon, chicken, flatbreads and so on. Perfect for any taste and a welcome departure from heavy southern cuisine offered in most restaurants in Memphis."

  • "The only restaurant with an open reservation on a Saturday night at 7:15 pm should have been a heads up. My party was seated promptly, but after 20 minutes we had to ask for a waitress. We did not even have water. The food(surf n turf, fish special and vege noodle dish were fair). The sashimi special appetizer was the best item of the meal. The ravioli served with the fish special was too doughy. The kitchen was slow. We will not return, there are many better restaurants in downtown to choose from."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "We had a large group and they handle us very well. Food was great! The menu was able to accommodate the non-sushi fans in the group as well. Will definitely eat here again on the next visit to Memphis."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "The atmosphere and location were awesome, but staff was less than desirable; not very educated about cocktails or menu choices, a little scattered. Food was just so-so. Next time, and yes, we would go back, would order from menu to be fair. Chose prix-fixe menu for efficiency, and were somewhat disappointed. Cocktails generous and poured well, but pricey. Wine list, especially house wines, could use some work. Overall, decent, but mediocre. Not bad for quick dinner and drinks pre- or apres- theater but not first choice. Maybe we just did not order well. Definitely want to return to see if regular menu better."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Good ambiance, service was a little slow but the food was really good! The Menage-a-Trois wine is excellent!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "My husband and I ate here for Valentine's Day. The MPD roll was great, but the Bluefin roll was surprisingly bland. We also enjoyed the spicy tuna and riverside rolls. It was very busy but our server was still attentive and gave us an accurate recommendation for a wine we enjoyed. We would definitely go back."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We had a hard time getting to the restaurant due to transportation problems on Valentine's Day but the owners were very understanding. Great, fast service and quality food."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I really enjoyed my house salad, the vinaigrette was great and the Bluefin roll with blue crab was delicious. I know I'm small town minded but for the price of the roll, I would have enjoyed a few more pieces. Overall, I had a delicious dinner before a great show!"
    Dined on 2/12/2014
  • "Overall Bluefin has quality in everything it does. We awesome sushi and had excellent Soup. The issue is Service. Have too few Servers on a busy Theater night.."
    Dined on 2/11/2014
  • "I LOVE Bluefin! Definitely a Memphis hot spot. We always come here before going to the Orpheum. The drinks are amazing and the sushi is to die for!! We tried the crab cakes for the first time and all I can say is WOW!!"
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "We had a reservation and it still took 30 minutes to get seated. Our waiter was very nice and knowledgable. The food was great. Too bad everything else was a mess!"
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "The waitress was excellent, and the food was amazing. I ordered the shrimp and grits and they we're awesome. I had the bread pudding for dessert. My companion had the chicken alfredo pizza and said it was the best they ever had."

  • "This place has the best sushi. The bluefin and smoked salmon was excellent .The atmosphere , so sweet!"

  • "Great food, great atmosphere. Was looking forward to crab cakes, but ours came with a 6" long hair. Waitress was kind and apologetic but still charged us full price for it. Be prepared to wait a sizable amount of time for your sushi order, but when it came it was very good."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "Because of traffic we were 15 minutes late for our reservation and we had tickets to a show at the Orpheum later that evening. Told our server we were a bit rushed and he said it would be no problem and he lived up to his word. We had sushi and sashimi for starters. The roll was excellent, the sashimi was good. For entrees we had the surf and turf and the pan seared scallops. Both were very good with the nod to the pan seared scallops as the best. The filet could have used a bit more seasoning, but was still very good. Several of the dinners around us had the flat bread pizzas and they looked great. Going to try the pizza We sat in the main dining room, but they have rooms on both sides of the main room that are great for groups."

  • "I visited with my date on New Year's Eve, and it was a pleasant experience. The food and wine were very good, and the service was pleasant and attentive."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "The sushi was excellent as always. However, our server was the worst I've ever seen. We rarely saw him, he seemed incredibly preoccupied when he did come by our table, my friend ordered a seaweed salad & never received it yet was charged for it & my husband & I did not get two of the rolls we ordered because our server admitted he didn't see them on the other side of the form we marked for the rolls we wanted. By the time he brought the rest of our order out & discovered the oversight, it would have taken a long time to get the other two rolls made so we chose not to wait. We left hungry. We had a concert to attend & ate something at the venue. Very frustrating experience! I would not recommend eating here until service improves."

  • "This restaurant used to be much better, but it appears a change in management, chef or other has caused the quality of food and service to suffer. I hate to see this, because as a Memphian I love to see downtown restaurants thrive. Appetizers were overall pretty tasty, which is why I hold the food at good instead of fair to poor. One member of our party had the short ribs which were below par. The absolute worst part was the fact that my wife actually had a piece of paper mixed in with the potatoes on her plated. She had ordered a filet, which was OK, and thank goodness she finished this before having her stomach turned by the paper. Service was slow and the waiter was often forgetful. We waited 25 minutes for one sushi roll."
