Urban, loud, with a cool ambience.
We celebrated a friend's dinner and the atmosphere was perfect. The crowd was a mix of late 20s and older, the atmosphere was louder but there was still a ver calm and cool ambience about the place. Our group consisted of 15 people, couples and singles and we ordered a few dishes to share and a few different martinis. Drinks and food were both excellent. A great spot for groups, friends, and couples! Very chic and urban without going overboard.

Food was great, served beautifully!We really enjoyed, it was worth the money paid.Music has become a bit to loud at some point and talking has become shouting. All the rest was very good.

They definitely show it to your face that they don't want you taking your time there. They push you so much to leave right after you're done with your order. We were there for only 1-1:30 hrs and got quite a few things and drinks even, but the moment the food was over, the waitress clearly pushed us to leave much earlier than we wanted. It's sad you spend this much money and they treat you like this.

Great sushi and sashimi. Ordered two rolls both were outstanding and the tuna belly sashimi was fantastic. Service was great, this is a great place for a secluded meal.

Must try for good fish and vibes
First place we visited while visiting Toronto. Very trend space with house music and great lighting. Entertaining people watching with more than a few wannabe Kardashians seating around us.
Service was excellent. Our waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable. Her recommendations were spot on. Our one choice that she was tepid on turned out to be not our favorite. Should have taken all her recommendations.
The Hamachi in hot oil was wonderful. Spicy tuna with rock shrimp roll was the best we've ever had. I could eat that every day. Cocktails were good and wine was spot on.
To end the night our server gave us a recommendation of another place up the road on Queen St. We stopped there for dessert and had a wonderful time!

Consistently one of the best
Consistently one of the best in Toronto! It is not for the bargain hunter for sure , but worth every cent! Let your server lead you through the menu for best results!

Food was FANTASTIC! And as
Food was FANTASTIC! And as a cook its hard to find places where food is extremely well done. I've never had such fresh delicious flavour packed sushi in my life! I recommend the spicy salmon roll and the lobster shrimp spring rolls with the zesty sesame mayo. The nailed it good wise but it was loud and bar like around 930-10 so if you want a quiter evening id go for dinner at 7 or so. Service was great although it did take a while for our drinks to come but the explanation of each dish was great and informative.

Expensive but Delicious
This is possibly the best Japanese food in the city. I didn't like the pan-fried scallops - overdone. The black cod is delicious but it is better at Edo. The fish tacos, the Ebi shooter, the waygu gyoza - get out of town - they are sensational. The whisky sour - made with Glenmorangie - cosmic

Great date place. Food tasted absolutely amazing - which was great since my date was a foodie. It is on the expensive side and portions are small - but it's the kind of place where you go for the taste and not to walk out feeling bloated. :)
Definitely recommend this to anyone who likes great tasting food. Eat slowly and savour every bite for the full experience.

What great food!! I loved everything! It was a girls night out and we did just that in a place that made us feel we were in the center of everything!!

Great food, great service and great ambiance. We got out of the cab and wasn't sure we were at the right spot until we saw the little sign. It was almost a little hole in the wall. Service was great - the waitress forgot one of our rolls but quickly put the order in and it was on the house which was very nice and unexpected. Overall a great place to eat and affordable (drinks are quit pricey but the cocktails are 3oz each).
Would recommend and go again! Thanks,

Still one of my favorite places to eat in the city!

Good but completely empty at 6pm
Went for quick bite at 6pm on Friday. Only 3 tables occupied. The rolls were excellent and reasonably priced. The scallops were unimpressive and overpriced at 16 dollars for 3 scallops. The almond encrusted calamari was great. Our drinks took really long to come although I could see them already poured and sitting on the bar. I wanted to go get them myself. Server was friendly. The atmosphere at this restaurant is much nicer when it is dark outside so don't go too early.

yummy! WE ARE GOING BACK!
The freshest sushi I have ever eaten, the eggplant and bok choy was cooked to perfection. The mushroom and sweet potatoe tempura melted in your mouth it was light and crispy. The spicy rock shrimp a must try!

Cool classy place for dinner
I love the drinks at Blow Fish and on the nights they have a DJ it's also a great atmosphere. The service was outstanding. Our waitress was so amazing I was really impressed.

Food and service great. Ambience
Food and service great. Ambience great. Music good too, but too loud. Very difficult to have a conversation. I felt that I was raising my voice, yelling even just to be heard from the person across from me. A friend of mine said she felt a buzzing in her ear after we left. Keep everything as is, just lower the volume please.

Bottom Line... Great Restaraunt
From start to finish this place has it all. I'm from Chicago and was told to go there and it was killer. Great scene, great drinks and the food was amazing.
10/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was amazing!!! It was a bit pricey but worth every penny!
I would not recommend this place for a first date, because you they have the music to loud that makes it difficult to hear what the person is saying, and the waitress wasn’t very attentive.
Overall, I loved the place (minus the loud music) and will be going back!

Been here many times and enjoy it everytime. Food and Service are great! To use the venacular of Open Table it is however far more energetic from a noise level later in the evening and so depending on my company, I might choose to go earlier next time!

The food is superb and the excitement in the place was energising. Service exceptional. Had a great time and lost my voice.

Great food and cocktails!
We celebrated my daughter's birthday there and were delighted with the food and service. We had fabulous sushi nigiri, rolls, rock shrimp, black cod and eggplant. The mango passion saketini and the Caribou Crossing were excellent cocktails.
