    Short and sweet: do not walk run to The Blue Fish in Las Colinas. Order the green apple sake (warm) and the ahi tower, you will agree in the end you just might pay any price for these items and anything else on the menu. It was my first time using open table for the reservation and despite my full party not arriving until an hour past the scheduled time, the hostess graciously showed us to our private room to accommodate us. Even my friend's 8 month old baby enjoyed herself. I cannot get back to Blue Fish fast enough!!!

    Noisy yet intimate, dim yet vibrant, an authentic upscale Japanese experience in a modern setting. Food was presented well, tasted fabulous, and was well priced. Drinks were made expertly, and specialty cocktails were varied enough to allow for a wide selection. Though a Tuesday evening, had a full house, but reservations made it easy to be seated quickly. Will be returning....

    The food, as always, was very good. The Ahi Tower is very definitely a favorite. However, I was pretty stunned by the inattentiveness of the wait-staff. At one point, I had to leave my seat, walk over to the waiter and tap him on the shoulder to attract his attention! He was far too busy draping himself over one of the female staff members to pay attention to customers, apparently. Admittedly, she's way more attractive than I am, however, a little more focus on the clientele, would probably be good for business. I usually frequent the North Dallas location and have always had outstanding service, so this was a true disappointment.

    The dining room is set up to be a little crowded with a fairly causal atmosphere. Our server was attentive and gave good suggestions when asked. The food came out in proper time and was phased in properly. The negatives to me were that the atmosphere is not warm and there's no feeling of privacy. The sushi was very plain tasting, the fish was bland and the rice was gooey. The flavor was lacking. The pot stickers were pan seared ok, but the filling tasted a little dry and had a grainy feel. The beer was great and the prices are lower than I expected thus, probably why the food was average to below average. It's okay for a quick sushi type stop but don't expect great food or atmosphere. Probably won't revisit that particular Bluefish.

    Not the typical ( small, quiet and traditional ) Japanese ambience. This is a big and busy setting with a huge wraparound sushi bar with no less than eleven sushi chefs. Had we know that the portions would be so large we would have ordered less. They are LARGE. the Uni and other roe offerings were super fresh. the rolls are inventive and very well executed. they have a little too much emphasis on salmon on the menu which indicated a smaller selection of other fish. But this is an observation not a complaint. the service was above par and it was fast. Highly recommended.

    Everyone raved about it. Was expecting a bit more. The bar was playing sports on TV giving it a hint of sports bar, not what I'm looking for when I go for sushi. It was probably the biggest sushi restaurant I've visited, so don't expect a cozy romantic experience if that is what you are after. Sort of a sushi mill. Food was on the higher end of the price scale as far as sushi goes. But the food was good, and the server did a good job. I left satisfied, not amazed.

    Some of the very best sushi in Dallas, but service was definitely off the norm. Food was very fresh and none of our choices were anything less than stellar. It was a slow night in the restaurant which may have explained why service was so far off the usual crisp pace. It seems that everyone performs better when the place is full. Ahi Tower always a great starter; all the sushi is fresh and well cut. Because of the smaller crown, the noise level wasn't as catatonic as usual. Just wish the servers had paid a bit more attention to the few customers they had.

    This was my first time coming to Blue Fish and it will not be my last. I placed a reservation online and when I arrived I was quickly seated with my party of 4. It was lunch time so was very busy, but you could not tell because the service was outstanding! The food was AMAZING! Definitely fresh and well prepared.

    The music in the dining room was way too loud to enjoy conversation and a meal. I felt like I was in a dance club more than a restaurant. Based on the ratings on OpenTable I expected the food to be better too. This might be a better place for lunch.

    The Blue Fish has great Sushi. I can't say enough about the Ahi Tower. It is delish! Every time I bring new people to the Blue Fish and introduce them to the Ahi Tower, they absolutely love it and we find ourselves ordering another. The rolls are great - Volcano is excellent. I try and go to The Blue Fish every time I get to Dallas!

    I don't know what they do so differently with seemingly simple ingredients such as tuna and rice, but I hope they keep doing it. Truly some of the best sushi I've had anywhere. I don't think I can go there without demolishing an ahi tower all to myself. Decor is a bit cheesy and service a bit slow, but soooo worth it!

    I cannot praise our sushi chefs enough for the delicious rolls and chirashi they prepared for us! The fish was extremely fresh and I love the new Naruto Soft Shell Crab roll. If you haven't tried it....you really need to! The thinly sliced cucumber that wraps around the roll gives it a very refreshing crunch and flavor. The Kijami wasabi that accompanied the sushi just elevated the taste to another level :)!

    huge bar and restaurant. Went for sea bass and salmon. Sea bass was perfectly cooked and delicious. Unfortunately, salmon was ordered medium and I asked specifically that it not be overcooked and was over cooked and dry. So well done on one side that we couldn't eat with chopsticks unless we picked the whole piece up and bit it! A bit disappointed but will return to try the sushi which looked really good.

Took over 20 minutes to get our drinks because (as he said to us) "I just haven't bothered to go back and get them. Food came out wrong. ..He is just a mess and unprofessional.

    I love that I can count on this restaurant for good food/service/atmosphere. I normally go to the Frankford @ North Dallas Tollway location, but I think I had an even better experience at the one in Las Colinas if that's even possible. Our server was outstanding and the food was absolutely delicious. I can never get enough of the Ahi Tower and I love that they carry so many of my favorite wines- Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc being at the top of that list. I'm not quick to hand out 5 stars, but I felt that they are well-deserved. Enjoy!

    Our overall experience that night was good. We started off the evening having a drink and some appetizers at the bar. The bartender and the lady assistant were not the friendliest of people and didn't provide anything to our experience especially considering it was New Year's Eve. However, our waitress for dinner was extremely friendly and courteous. She definitely changed the mood of our night. The food was prepared quickly and was good. The tower could have been more favorable but the rolls we had were excellent. One thing that we really enjoyed was the peach sake.. Wow!! Some of the best we had.
