Food was meh for $25 and they don't even give you cups to share the bottled water you bought fom this restaurant. They charge you 20% tips as default and ask you to tip more if you feel like it.

Service was not the greatest, we waiting for about 20 mins before someone came over to greet us. Our sushi came out before our appetizer. Just a little unorganized. Food was very good !

Went to an early dinner with my daughter. The tables are separated by plexiglass hanging from the ceiling on both sides of the table so that felt very claustrophobic. Ordered Kimino plum juice which cost $5 for a small bottle and was not impressed with that at all. Very overpriced. The food was good, I enjoyed their rolls. Service was good as well but it would have been nice if they offered water to drink. was not blown away but it was good.

There were a few loud customers, but it seemed they were having a good time, so I wasn’t bothered. The gentleman who took my order recommended the Bronx roll and it was definitely my favorite of the 3 rolls I ordered. The prices are cheaper than I expected and the vibe from the restaurant was so relaxing. Google said people typically spend less than 30$ and I couldn’t agree more

They stopped serving tap water FYI. Leaves you with the option of a $4 Voss water bottle or no water at all. Pretty absurd up charge for no apparent reason when there’s perfectly good tap available.

My husband and I took advantage of the Philly Center City Restaurant week to go out and celebrate our anniversary. We made a reservation, but even if we hadn't had one, we would have been taken in and seated immediately as the staff was very attentive and on top of getting people situated and comfortable. Their safety standards were high, with everything being cleaned well and even asking us to start off our visit with hand sanitizer and a temperature check - I know not everyone may see this as necessary, but it made us feel safe and much more comfortable in the indoor space.

The food was absolutely delicious. My husband had their sushi rolls, and I even enjoyed them and I don't like fish! My meal was the lamb chop, which was tender and well seasoned, and the veggies that came with it were perfectly cooked and tender.

It was an amazing experience all around, and we will definitely be coming back!

My group of friends and I decided to eat at Bleu Sushi for restaurant week, and it was an amazing experience for our first time! Although I felt like the restaurant week menu was limited, it was to be expected and the food did not disappoint. The servers were responsive to our needs, and the food was always quickly served. They offer outdoor dining as well as indoor dining with dividers between tables. I would love to come back to try out their main menu, and I would absolutely recommend this place if you are into good-quality Japanese food.

Hands down, the best Sushi spot in Philly. If you’re looking for an incredible meal and amazing waitstaff this is the place to go. On top of being extra friendly the entire staff is very accommodating to allergies and special requests. They will always go out of their way to provide amazing food and great service. Can’t recommend this place enough.

Everything about our meal was excellent! Vanessa was so attentive, I just had to look up and she was at the table. The sushi was perfect, the Covid precautions comforting and the pace of the meal right on the mark. We had the best vegetable spring roll I've ever tasted and shared four noteworthy rolls, Ten Street Roll, Lombard Roll, Temple Roll and Shibuya Crossings. The sake was smooth and the dessert, a matcha ice cream cone, topped off dinner perfectly. For a first time experience, Bleu Sushi wowed us!

Love, love, love Bleu!! The food, the ambience and the people ... especially Hendra and his son. They all went out of their way to make our experience memorable. We would have enjoyed it anyway just based on the fantastic food and ambience ... the people just took it over the top. Highly recommend.
