    Food and selection were excellent; very authentic and delicious! However, I was informed by the staff that they do not serve tap water, and only sell bottled. I was positively dumbfounded by this; never in my life have I been to a restaurant in the United States of America that did not offer water for free. If that were an option, I likely would have ordered more food, however not being able to sit comfortably and hydrate on a hot day while eating my meal without spending exorbitant amounts of money on Voss water was a great turnoff to me. Bleu Sushi, you have an INCREDIBLE restaurant here; it’s so rare I find a place that does some actually authentic Japanese dishes. Please fix this. It’s SO SIMPLE. OFFER FREE TAP WATER. IT ISNT THAT HARD.

    The sushi was very good and at a reasonable price. We sat outside and the service was good since the restaurant was busy (in person & takeout). We enjoyed our meal and the bottle of wine we brought. If you would like alcohol, please remember it is BYOB. Great casual place for delicious sushi!

    Bleu was great! This was my first time here, and we got seated and served fairly quickly, there was no charge for bringing our own wine bottle (we also brought a twist off cap to make it easier for us), and all the food was well priced! Highly recommend the two signature roll option, as it allows you to get MORE food (soup or salad) for just the price of two signature rolls already. We couldn't tell if they served their own water - we saw someone near us being served with water from a pitcher, but I also read beforehand that you would have to buy the VOSS waters. We brought our own water, just in case.

    The food was good, wish I knew it was a byob! The only complaint is I ordered a shrimp tempura to go and the portion was half the size of what I ate at the table. Very disappointed. But the vibe was great in restaurant.

    Didnt realize it was BYOB, thats my fault but maybe make that a little more clear, maybe a reminder alert that comes with all of the alerts you receive for your reservation. Sushi was very good, no complaints there. Was very cold inside on a very cold night from constant in and out so prepare accordingly. They should move back to paper menus, not QR code, so many sushi options is great but hard to decide & discuss options staring at a smartphone constantly scrolling. Overall, I recommend to all sushi lovers.

    They advertised a happy hour- and when we got there they did not serve alcohol. They sent us to a place on the corner. The average bottle of wine was $45. Otherwise the food was good, the salmon was not the freshest but the sushi and sashimi overall was very good.

    Fun vibe. Cute decor and plate-ware. Yummy food. Among best sushi I have had. Great, long menu. Good value with combos and BYO. I actually had leftovers which I rarely do after eating sushi, but the portions on the regular roll combo were very generous. They also had clearly made an effort to be safe in the pandemic with indoor seating that had glass partitions between tables, an open door and window, and great outdoor seating with a little shelter and heat lamps. They also gave us each a spritz of hand sanitizer when we entered while the servers wore masks. Patrons seemed to wear masks when not seated. It felt fun and healthy. The service was very attentive and quick, too.

    The food was fine and the service good but too loud and too cold (we were inside). QR code menu format confusing- hard to get scope of offerings. Tap water not available. Had to buy bottled water. Don’t mind cost as much as environmental aspects of single use containers

    ordered the sushi boat and it was no edible. The fish is not fresh at all and had weird texture to it. the nigiri rice was just plain white rice - didn't even have rice vinegar on it. I would not recommend this place, there are much better sushi places for the same price in the city.

    Bleu is a neighborhood favorite for me and my favorite sushi BYOB in the city. It more than satisfies my weekly sushi craving. However, the other entrée options are also delicious as well if you're not a fan of sushi. The staff are always friendly and attentive to your needs. You may even meet the owner, as he is always introducing himself and conversing with his customers. The only "discomfort" I can share is that sometimes there will be larger parties celebrating an event (Becky's Birthday, etc.) and with it being a BYOB, it can get loud. You may find yourself having to scream across the table at your date.

    We had a 11:45 AM lunch reservation for 2. The place was empty. We were offered a 2 person tiny table. I requested a larger table for 4 so that we could have more space and were denied because they were "reserved". We spend an hour and half there and ordered a bunch of food with our wine and sake. We love sushi and we would rate the food as good. By the time we were done there were still 3 empty 4-person tables despite the "reservations". It is poor form to deny us the 4-person table when the place is pretty much empty for lunch. Poor customer service and we will not back.
