    We took our kids at lunchtime, and the food was great. Everyone found something to enjoy, whether they were into sushi or not. Freshness and quality were excellent. We're looking forward to returning.

  • Eclectic Japanese with Texas twist
    ClaudeVIP
    Dined on 5/6/2014
    The menu at Blue Fish includes several dishes with a bit of Texas flair, such as jalapeños among the ingredients. The "tuna tower" is a nice appetizer, large enough to split between two people, which is good given that it is a little pricey at $15. There is a great variety of rolls, sashimi by the piece (no sampler plate, which they may consider too common but is often helpful), tempura, grilled/cooked items, and even desserts. There is a good list of cold sakes in various sizes. Our server was attentive, capable, and funny. We were lucky that it was one of those rare bearable May evenings, not too hot, so we could be outside, where the atmosphere was very pleasant and it was quieter than inside.

    Celebrated wife's 50th birthday. The service was impeccable. We will definitely be asking for Jaren from now on. The sushi, as always, seemed extremely fresh and very tasty. Were a bit disappointed that they had almost no bottled reds available for purchase and ended up having to settle for what they had, but it didn't affect our enjoyment. We will most definitely be back.

    My friends brought me to try blue fish for my first time on Saturday, January the 5th and had the most amazing sushi! With a party of five, we were seated instantly when we walked in and had great service. Magician was a nice touch to our dining as well. I'll be back indeed.

    Being New Year's Eve, it was very busy, of course. However, the service and food were spectacular. We had a table of 10 with ages ranging from young to mature...we were all happy! Love this place and will return. We also appreciate that no matter where we sit in the restaurant we still have a wonderful view to the pretty outdoors.

    We arrived and had to wait about 5 minutes before being seated. Once seated we had to wait 15 minutes before anyone came around to ask about drinks. The drink had still not arrived about 10 to 15 minutes later so we decided to go to another restaurant. They were not over crowded this Friday evening. So over all it was not a good experience

    We moved from CA and are sushi snobs! We don't judge quality off rolls, we prefer to critique sashimi and raw sushi. I am 7 mos pregnant so I had to stick to the basics but I saw several food towers walk by and my husband was in a happy place with everything he ordered! We noticed a lot of children including little ones in high chair... Overall it's not a get fancy, fine dining place. Rather a happy energetic casual experience.

    We dine at the Blue Fish Allen frequently but the last time we went the service was awful. We waited over an hour after our appetizer for the main course and that was only after we complained. They did compensate us but need to be aware of their customers sitting on the patio. We recommend sitting inside for better service. As always though, the food was superb.

    We had a great mother's day lunch. We love sushi, but mum is gluten free, so we have to avoid soy sauce. The server got all of the sauces on the side and we were able to all enjoy the sushi. The little ones got these great bento boxes. A little pricey, but tons of food and really neat presentation. We will be back

    I would definitely return and will recommend this to my friends. Our immediate family got together for our first encounter of this restaurant for Mother's Day. The food was brilliantly prepared from the appetizers to the entrees with an array of different spices and sauces. The main course entrees came with unique, but extremely tasty sides, such as fried mashed potatoes that not only tasted delightful, but were extremely well plated and aesthetically pleasing to look at. The only noted negative item was the table was slightly cramped for a party of 9, but manageable.

    Went here for my wife's birthday. We were seated right away, and attended to promptly. Our server made apt suggestions and even saved us some money by suggesting the house saki and assuring us that our portions were adequate when we were ready to add more to our order. At the end of the meal, she left our check and did not rush us in the least. After dinner, we sat and talked, and the server never bothered us, and they kept our water filled. Very nice experience. Oh, and the sushi is some of the best quality in the metroplex.

    I love good sushi and sake! This place is a good place to get a quick fix. I had reservations but the restaurant wasn't packed so we decided instead to hit the bar as if seemed 'lively'! We thoroughly enjoyed trying things because of the happy hour discounted menu. They also had a great special for Sake. I liked the atmosphere. The bartender was a bit preoccupied and it took me over 5 minutes to get her attention every time I ordered...... but I was very patient THAT day. Great neighborhood find and price conscious, but I've had much better sushi....but i was only getting a quick fix so it served it's purpose.

    Visited this restaurant for the first time Saturday night. We were very pleased with the food, drinks and atmosphere. We did expect it to be more of an adult crowd but that was definitely not the case. Restaurant was teeming with kids and large family groups. We still had a pleasant time but would not go here for a romantic night out. The service was the most disappointing thing.

    My family went to Blue Fish for a celebration. The food and plating was excellent. However, the plates they served it on were way too large for the table. We were shuffling plates, drinks, etc. all evening. While the place is popular, the music (techno style) was way too loud; it was hard to carry on a conversation. I would recommend if you go to enjoy your company, eat outside on their patio.
