We had a great outdoor sushi dinner on 11/16. Outdoor heating lamps and well-placed tables kept us warm and made us feel safe. The food and service were awesome and the server recommended some appetizers that we would not have considered that were great. From beginning to end, it was perfect. The manager spoke to us at the end of our dinner and thanked us for our support. Support small businesses!

When we arrived, they had accidentally sat another party at the table we had requested and confirmed 3 times outside (due to COVID restrictions this was a necessity) but they quickly handled the situation and provided great service! They've also really done a great job with their outside seating and ambiance.

My friend and I both had the Chirashi which came with 12 assorted pieces of sashimi. They cut one whole crabmeat stick in half and called that “two pieces” of sashimi. Pretty ridiculous for the price we paid for that entree. The waitress was not attentive to our table even though it was just my table and another party being sat at the time. We weren’t served water either :(
I made this reservation a couple days before coming to the restaurant and halfway through my meal I received an email saying that they “no showed” me. Not only was the waitress not attentive, the whole staff was. First thing I announced was my name on the reservation and how many guest there were.

Oyster appetizer was hot and delicious. Sushi, sashimi and sushi rolls were excellent. Went back a couple of weeks later and found the food to be equally fresh and delicious. Small, friendly byob restaurant worth checking out.

We love Bleu Sushi! This was our second visit in a month, we really enjoyed the outdoor seating. Even when it was cold out, it feels fine - they have multiple heaters. Food is great, we had two of the signature rolls with miso soup, and also got edamame and pork gyoza. Especially compared to other sushi places in the area, the pricing is fair and it’s so nice that the owner comes out to talk to you. BYOB is a plus! We’ll definitely be back again soon.

Overall it was an outstanding experience. Next time, I will request a table away from the Door Dash pickup window. That was a bit distracting but the service, the food and the overall atmosphere were awesome!!

Service for our table was very poor. We waited very long before anyone came by and we had to ask for the check etc. It appeared all the other tables did have great service but ours was one of the worst I’ve ever had! The manager was friendly making rounds to say thank you for dining at the end of the evening though. I’m not sure what happened that our table was almost completely forgotten about.

Sushi was okay, but not extraordinary. I ordered spicy salmon and it was missing the crunch. Salmon teriyaki meal was a bit bland.

Bleu Sushi is amazing! The owner cares about his customer’s dining experience and made an effort to check in with all his patrons. He wants you to enjoy the food and do it at a good price, too. It was our daughter’s birthday and they made sure she had a great one, too.

Really disappointed in my dinner here. My son and daughter had eaten here previously and said it was good but the quality of the sushi I had was barely above grocery store level. Fish tasted old, rice was not quite cooked enough and some of the pieces were very tough. I know things are challenging for restaurants now but I would not go back.
