Diner Reviews

  • "if you want free parking, get there before 5pm! even on weekdays, they set up valet parking in their own lot around 5pm..."

  • "We just love Blue Fish as a neighborhood sushi place. They are consistent on their service and food. They also have a location downtown across from Wrotham. I've noticed that the Washington location is becoming more of a family place with young children. While I LOVE little ones, not at 7:00 p.m. on a Saturday night. The wait staff was knowable - so much, that we just let him order our entire dinner. We were very pleased and will continue visiting both locations."

  • "We enjoy The Blue Fish and go there to eat even when we have other Sushi options close by. It's not the best we've ever had but solidly good."

  • "Our first time to eat at this restaurant and the service was great, the waitress was really nice and helpful. The rolls were different from the same ol same ol you see at all the other sushi restaurants. None of the rolls were covered in spicy mayo. Very original, very good sushi combinations. The waitress gave us her opinions and was very patient with us since it was our first time. We will be back for sure. The Tuna Tower and Hawaiian roll were probably our top picks for the night."

  • "The sushi is delicous, and the ambiance is a plus. Service was great. I went for a birthday dinner, and returned within a week. The rainforest roll and tuna melt in your mouth. Calamari is a delish choice for appetizer. I'm hungry now!!"

  • "Blue fish is absolutely our favorite sushi place! Everytime we go we are extremely pleased with the fresh fish and delicious rolls. The Ahi tuna tower is to die for!!"

  • "Recently found this restraunt and can honestly say they have the best Sushi in all of Houston. Never diappointed in the food or service."

  • "Any sushi eater knows that the main thing about sushi is freshness. Good sushi is good but bad sushi is AWFUL. We to to Blue Fish every week and have yet to have a bad experience or order anything that didn't come out great. The service is good and the people all very friendly."

  • "BlueFish quality and food freshness was outstanding and service was spot on I lived in Japan for 2 years and had the best freshness seafood and customer service available and was afraid after that experience wouldn't find a restaurant in the US that measured up. BlueFish came very close, move over RA Keep up the good work!!!"

  • "Vibrant young crowd, food could be tastier. I had the Chicken teriyaki, everything tasted the same. Couldn't tell the difference btw chicken and vegetable. The veg tempura was ok. The vegetable were mushy instead of crispy. Great wine list, great place to gather, tables are close together, so it's very social and the service was excellent. Better for 18-30 crowd who may not discern, as much if the food is fabulous, or not."

  • "I went here for an anniversary lunch with my boyfriend and it was just right. We got the calamari appetizer and it was delicious but just a tad too oily. The rolls we ordered were all delicious with generous portions of fish on them. Service was quick but they tend to fill your glass up entirely with water so after one sip it looked like we drank half the glass and they'd have to constantly come back! Prices were fair and the food was good, we'll be coming back!"

  • "Between the excellent company, the sake and the ahi tuna towers we had a great time. Recommended"

  • "Tuna tower is fantastic. The scene on fri and sat can be a bit much, hard to talk to your table, etc. But all in all a great place"
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "Highly recommend the ahi tower. Rolls were fresh and delicious. If you're going with children, recommend going early. Kid-friendly until the crowds start coming in and then it may be a bit overwhelming for kids. Some of the best sushi and quail eggs we've ever had! Reasonably priced as well."

  • "Service was not good. Server would take a drink order from one person then disappear, didn't even think about asking rest of table. A custom sushi roll was ordered after server said they were capable of custom rolls... Well they delivered 15mins AFTER the rest of the tables rolls! Seriously... And the manager brought the roll out and didn't even speak, much less apologize for delay or say enjoy. Overall, if you enjoy being forced to accept what is handed to you and expect nothing more than a profoundly average dining experience, then BlueFish is the place for you! I recommend Soma down the street."

  • "The sushi rolls and Nigiri are wonderful! The atmosphere was very laid back, half the tables had young children which was nice since my friends with kids are always very worried about bringing their child to a sushi restaurant. The prices are a bit high we thought but the quality of the food was great and the taste was as well. We will definitely be back, maybe for their happy hour."

  • "The sushi was fresh and delicious, the lychee martinis were fantastic. The restaurant itself was barren and open and lacked personality. The expansive bar looked like it should be in a club rather than a restaurant. If you're not too interested in the ambiance Tue in good shape because the food is, as it should be, the main focus."
    Dined on 12/22/2013
  • "We started off at the bar and our bartender recommended an excellent sake. While we were enjoying our sake I asked about the various drinks they were mixing in front of us and was given a sample. I ordered the signature martini and it was amazing! The rest of our party arrived and we moved to our table. We should've just stayed at the bar though because our server sucked: couldn't make any recommendations, really impatient and loudly announced last call at 11:15! The sushi wasn't all that great for the price so I doubt I'll be back for the fish. However, I will be back for a drink or two at their fabulous bar!"

  • "Food was good. Appetizers came last. The noise from the bar made our conversations difficult"

  • "We were there on a Friday night. We had a reservation and were seated pretty fast. The place was really noisy! The orders were not served as they were placed. Waiter forgot to bring a dish. Water glasses were not filled on time. Dish with wasabi and ginger was taken away while we were still eating. When I commented on that, they promised to bring a new one. We never got it. Food was allright, but overprized."

  • "We had great service last Saturday and loved the food. The manager checked in on us and our waiter made sure we had everything we needed!"

  • "I have been to Blue Fish a few times now (Washington and Bayou Place locations) and every time we order the Ahi Tower appetizer. I don't think I could ever get tired of it, it is so good and refreshing, and has been consistent in taste! We've tried a few different rolls now, but Pinata is the best (nice and spicy)! The price of the sushi is a little on the high end, however the quality of food is good. The atmosphere is very loungy-club like (ie, low lighting). We went this past Friday and it was really loud and super busy (barely got a reservation). The customer service was overall good."
