Lushan China Bistro & Lounge reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Decent but lacking a punch
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 5/12/2013
    The sushi tasted great but a couple elements of the experience felt off. For example, the restaurant, which has recently changed its name form Bluefin Bistro, lacks a complete-feeling decore. My party ate in the "Patio" area, which had nice decor, but the dining room looked odly empty. I would still recommend the restaurant as the one of the few nice restaurants in the area.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 3/23/2013
    Lushan used to be Bluefin Bistro and The Patio -- I'm from the area and recently moved home and wanted to see the changes in the new place. We were pleasantly surprised to see the menu hadn't changed much and the food quality was the same. We came with a group of 6 and they automatically charged us a 20% tip for a large group. We found this to be ridiculous as the restaurant wasn't overly busy and it is typical to do this with a group of 8 or more, not 6. Coming from Chicago we understand gratuity and service but the service in this case wasn't great and we didn't appreciate being forced into the gratuity for a smaller group. This is NOT typical of other nice restaurants in the area.

    Dined on 3/15/2013
    It's great that this restaurant is still going. The menu is similar to when it was Blue Fin, but with some great additions. The sushi was good, but the Volcano Roll was definitely not like the Volcano Roll I've had before. It was not really a roll but more like rice with ingredients in an aluminum foil package set on fire. Perhaps a new version of it? Still very tasty!

    The lettuce in the lettuce wraps was probably the same as their wedge salad, and as such, the lettuce leaves were not really big enough to serve as wraps. The chicken mango was average at best. Fairly bland and unexciting. I will probably try again, but will order something different.

    The review may be a little harsh since I dined on opening day (valentines day) and it was at full capacity. The decor was nice and the menu was average for a sushi bistro. We decided to get the lobster tower and it did take 1.5 hours till we ate. The rolls were good however some of the cooked ones were getting cold and the lobster had minimal meat and was very difficult to eat. I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt since it was their first night.

    Fantastic! My lady wanted to have a special night all about her (although she let me pick the movie... the hobbit!!)and bluefin was the perfect place. It was a quiet night, felt very at ease. Our waiter was perhaps a tad too quick, didn't let us relax as long as I wanted, but he was very obliging when we took awhile. The sushi rolls are the best in Lafayette (I recommend trying the ones that come out on fire) and although it was a seafood specialty restaurant,the filet was fantastic as well. We'll be back.

    I had a surprise party for my husband last Saturday the hostess sitting us on our entry ,me kids and hisband goes Oh! Barbara party of 11, well there goes my surprise! Next we had a great accomodations and friendly stuff but our waitress was rather slow. I understand getting mixed drinks from the bar may be delayed but getting a bottle of wine should never be a hurdle! Food would have been awesome should it come out in time and some supposed to be hot dishes were already cold. I think Blue Fin has a potential to be a great addition to downtown Lafayette ( not vibrant scene as is) but they need to improve service and timing!

    I have been to Bluefin Bistro twice and both times the food was exceptional. The service was a little better the first time, but was still very good. I wish you still had the Brazilian style meal where you had table side service with a variety of meats! This visit I had the Scallops and they were fantastic!!!

    This was a mid week business dinner. The food was great. The place was empty. I assume due to the day of the week (Wed Eve). I had the swoardfish and was pleased. The wine list was good, extensive, and priced right, by the glass. Chairs, tables, very comfortable.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011

    We usually love Bluefin Bistro and are so grateful to have an upscale seafood restaurant downtown.Friday evening I took my sister there for her birthday and although we thoroughly enjoyed ouselves,the entree we shared was a huge disappointment.We ordered Mussels and Clams which arrived lukewarm,at best,on a bed of linguini (strangely not mentioned in the menu),but at least it had a nice sauce.Upon asking our waitress(Kitty or Katy?)for bread,she informed us a large party had already eaten all of the bread and offered us cracker. We were both taken aback with the situation (especially since our dinner reservation was for 6:30)and wondered why a bus boy or server wasn't sent out on an emergency bread run.

    Bluefin is a popular dinner location, but I was glad to enjoy the sushi and sashimi options for lunch. The martini options with fruit juice are a great refresher on a hot summer day, combined with a cool plate. I also want to compliment the OpenTable process here. Our reservation was initially for 2:00, but the restaurant manager called me to ask for an earlier time (since the kitchen closed at 2:00). Shifting the reservation was possible, and enabled by my use of the app.

    Dined on 7/29/2012
    Here on a Sunday eve, 7/27/12, had a very energetic waiter and was smart enough to get someone more versed on wine, which was helpful. Would have loved (1) French wine by the glass or an Albarino, but had to settle one more time for Campanillo Pinot Grigio. Salad was plentiful but hard to eat out of the bowl, so dumped on a spare plate. The waiter went to extra means to chop a cucumber himself to sub for tomatoes. Had the lobster linguine, nice flavor, not in a cream sauce. Not a wow so probably wouldn't order again. Dad liked the sweet n sour chicken stir fry, and others enjoyed the Crab legs (only 3 small ones for $39) and the sushi was tasty. Nice ambience either in the casual or formal areas, well designed and would go back!

    Very good food and atmosphere! My wife hasn't had a lot of seafood over the years, so the suggestions our server gave her concerning some of the different options she might like "to get her feet wet" were very helpful. The Seafood Sampler Trio was awesome! Also, all-you-can-eat sushi of that quality for $25? Count me in!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 5/13/2012
    I ordered the garlic scallops and they came out with a beautiful presentation. However, they were not fully cooked and cold when I received them. I had them sent back and when they came out the second time there were 5 scallops on the plate; no sauce, no tomatoes, which is what they were served with the first time. Very disappointed with my meal, $30 for plain scallops totally not worth it, I recommend not ordering them to anyone who is thinking about it. Everyone else at my table enjoyed their food and we had a great time though! Wonderful service and a good atmosphere. We were celebrating Mother's Day and Graduation from Purdue.

    Wish I could report a better experience. We had a 7:30 dinner reservation for 7 of us for a graduation dinner. Seated late which was not a big concern. However, we did not get our food until sometime around 9 pm and most of our orders were not hot. The manager was responsive but only to half our table. Its a shame because the restaurant itself is very pretty. Pricey as well.

    It was a great place to celebrate a special occasion. The food was wonderful and the service was just right. We ordered from the menu but will try their other options next time we visit that include the sushi, shrimp, and meats all you can enjoy. The restaurant was pretty crowded and had a couple very large groups but it did not distract from our dining experience.

    This was our first visit to Bluefin Bistro. The continuous table side service was a fun, new dining experience and is suitable for teenage kids. The endless sushi or the Gaucho de Fogo specials are a great choice at a good price if your new to sushi or just want to sample the menu. Better than driving to Indy. We'll be back.

    Bluefin Bistro offered both a classy dining area where you could have a special, romantic evening, as well as an indoor patio area where it's more laid back. This was my first visit, so we decided to take the patio side since it was a nice evening out. The sushi was great! We ordered a mix of a couple of spicy rolls and some not-spicy rolls, and both were delicious. I'll definitely be back...
