    Never disappoints when we come here for dinner. Ahi tuna tower and the duck cigars is how we always start off and they are always delicious. They also have a great selection of sushi rolls and the sashimi is quite fresh here. This time we tried the el cubano, dragon, mango pinata, and the last vegas roll, which were all very good. Will be back!

    I meet at restaurants often for business and am frequently looking for new locations. This was my first visit to Blue Fish, which I found through OpenTable, and I found it very enjoyable. The food was excellent, the ambiance and service were very good, it was easy to have a conversation, and the menu was unique enough from the usual business affair to make it interesting and memorable.

    Blue Fish is my favorite restaurant in Dallas! I always enjoy my dining experiences here. Their sashimi is fresher and tastes better than other area Japanese restaurants I've been to and their vegetable tempura also has a more flavorful taste than other places. I love the ambiance, the aquariums and the great location. Sometimes I enjoy happy hour specials at the bar/lounge area, and sometimes I am in the mood to sit at the hibachi section with friends. Other times I sit in the main dining area by the aquariums to have sashimi.

    Great place. This was my first time for this location. Loved it. Just discovering sushi and love this place. We had a mix up of where to sit. But once we learned the options we selected the hibachi. Tight seating but was great.

    We were looking for something new to try and browsing Open Table when we found this 1000 point time. I'm not a sushi fan but my boyfriend is so we made sure to look at the menu first, and it had something we both would like, so we figured we would try it out! We arrived and were sat immediately into about a 1/2 full dining room, and it was happy hour with $1 sake which was a great deal! We placed our orders and food starting coming out one dish at a time, never-mind the fact that we weren't intending to share it all. That was our only peeve, as we tried dish after dish everything was outstanding! We couldn't finish our entrees and they boxed it up nice and neat for us and it help up well. We will be back!

    Decided to have dinner thinking sushi and wound up with the tuna salad - excellent sashimi grade tuna, lightly seared around the edges on a plate heaped full of mixed greens with avocado and mango thrown in. Absolutely delightful! The calamari appetizer with two sauces was also a winner.

    Sushi was amazing as always, and service was stellar. We were celebrating my husband's birthday over the weekend and he wanted sushi before we headed back to Oklahoma. There is no better in Dallas than The Blue Fish. They also treated him to tempura fried ice cream, and the server was kind enough to bring me a small scoop of ice cream without the breading as I'm gluten-free. We will definitely be back next trip to D-town.

    Blue Fish is always a good late night option in North Dallas, even on a Sunday, funny enough. I wish that the staff was a bit more attentive as I am always trying to flag down someone for another drink or more sushi additions when I sit at the Sushi bar. Otherwise it is a great restaurant.

The ahi tuna tower is a must have and the sushi rolls are our favorite. The bar is always packed whenever we get here for dinner and it's always a fun, inviting atmosphere.

    Upon arrival a few moment early we were seated immediately which was awesome. Waiter was at our service as soon as we sat down. I had the Short Rib it was to die for, fell off the bone!! Now you know it's good tender meat when it falls off the bone. It was served with some really tasty sweet potatoes puree delicious. The jalapeno roll was really good my son enjoyed it, to end we had a chocolate cake desert:) This will be on my frequently visit list from now on for sure.

    One of our favorite sushi spots in Dallas. Came here to try out the hibachi and it was delicious! The chef was super nice and did all the fun tricks. We very much enjoyed it. The only thing was (like all hibachi meals) that the fried rice seemed overwhelmingly oily but I guess it couldn't be helped. It was still delicious and everything was well cooked. Will be back next time!

The waiter was very helpful. We had the Ahi Tower, Mega Lobster, Rock Manhattan, Rainforest, Firecracker and Julie’s. Enjoyed all of them. Will definitely go back.
