Sushi was good and reasonably priced. Service was friendly and attentive. A little limited on the Sashimi choices; BYOB makes this restaurant a good value.

We loved this place. Sushi was excellent & priced reasonable. Service was great. It was a little loud, but I guess that happens in small locations.

The food was good. However the experience was entirely ruined by the service. Our waiter continuously looked at his watch while he took our order and repeatedly told us the kitchen would be closing soon even though it was 40 min before close. He rushed us and made us uncomfortable. Once we got our food, they turned on the lights and started to clean the restaurant. Even going so far as to take the soy sauce off our table while we were still eating sushi even though it was still 30 minutes before close. Really horrible experience and we will never be going back.

It’s a small byob by Jefferson hospital. The sushi was delicious- amazingly fresh. They have some unusual rolls with crispy garlic and pepper. Very nice for a quick pre-theater bite.

Great appetizer and sushi! We had to buy our own alcoholic drinks though because they didn't have an alcoholic license. Overall a great time with our business colleagues.

The food was great! I ordered the seaweed salad with cucumber and the Rittenhouse roll (amazing!) and both were delicious. My son ordered the chicken teriyaki lunchbox and enjoyed it very much. My husband and daughter ordered rice bowl dishes that came in giant bowls-my husband loved it and finished the entire thing, while my daughter had enough left over to bring home. The owner spoke to us to see if we enjoyed the meal and both he and the staff were very pleasant. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who enjoys Japanese food.

Really fantastic. I've been several times and am consistently impressed with the service. And the sushi is just delicious. I had the yellow tail, salmon, tuna, and scorched white tuna, all which was so good. All served with friendly and attentive service. Bleu Sushi is my favorite sushi restaurant in town. It's a BYO, which is also nice on the wallet.

The food was good and the service was prompt, and the hostess didn't mind that we were 10 minutes late for our reservation. However, the combination of very close tables and dim lighting made the restaurant feel like a noisy night club. Other sushi restaurants in the area have the same quality food with much more pleasant ambiance, so I don't think I will go here again.

Loud, terrible music selection (a radio station with commercials!), but really good service and quick and easy. Good location. BYO! Wings and sushi were good. Almost all their specialty rolls have spicy tuna or spicy crab so we didn’t get many.

Very good execution and exceptional service. The owner took a moment to say hi, ask how things were, and engage in a meaningful way that simply does not happen anymore. You would be hard pressed to find an owner/leadership team that is more involved in the employee and customer experience. Nice job Blue Sushi...

The food is consistently outstanding, which is why we recently opted to take our sushi-connoisseur parents for dinner when they visited us from out of town. Not only was the food amazing as always, but the owner made a point to come to our table and teach us about sushi and even gifted us some of his prized unfiltered sake! If you want an authentic experience in Philly, it has to be Bleu!

Very much enjoyed our first visit last Saturday, a family gathering for a birthday. We were greeted by the owner, who took great pride in explaining the menu and new items (which we tried and found outstanding). Noise level was fine, even though the place had a "live" atmosphere among the guests. Prompt, efficient service. Excellent variety, satisfying the vegan and the sushi lovers among us. A great evening of good food.

Bleu Sushi ALWAYS goes above and beyond with their service and hospitality!! We have never had a sub par dining experience!! The food is fresh and delicious too!! It was my birthday and they truly made my celebration special. My boyfriend and I used to live in the neighborhood but we move to Fairmount about 3 years ago and it’s still the only sushi we eat in all of Philadelphia!! 💗

BEST SUSHI IN TOWN. Impeccably fresh fish, huge menu of creative and delicious rolls. The shumai literally melt in your mouth - order more than one order bc they go down too easy! The Locust roll had the entire table literally freaking out over how good it was. New York roll was fantastic as well. Not one thing ordered was disappointing. On a whim we ordered the sea urchin special - Fantastic!! Best I’ve ever ever had. Service was kind, attentive and just plain awesome. Can’t wait to return.
