Blowfish Contemporary Sushi
Great food and great service! I
Always excellent food and great service. I live right down the street and so happy that it's a 5 minute walk to the best sushi in the city! Can't recommend this place enough.
Yummy food, nice ambiance, moderately priced and large portions.
Everything was terrific from the service to the food.
Super fun vibe! Love the Shrimp Tempura appetizer-All their rolls super fresh. priced right and BYOB
Happy to see them on OT as can be busy and on a wait. Love this place!
My girlfriend and I love Blowfish. It is a very nice place for a date or small group dinner. The staff are very courteous and helpful with any question we had. Will definitely be coming back.
Staff was friendly. Food was great. The BYO is a nice feature.
Birthday 🙃 food was very good
We went to Blowfish Sushi this weekend and absolutely loved it! Everything was so fresh, creative, and delicious. Plus, the vibe was energetic, but not too loud. Loved the BYOB policy. Would highly recommend.
Amazing sushi and ramen. Great sushi options for vegetarians.
I absolutely love the food here! Great food for a deal. Best ramen I’ve had in the city. However, I had a reservation for 7:00pm for 4 people and was not seated until 7:20pm. There was also another group with a reservation for 7:00pm and they were not seated until 7:30pm. I didn’t mind waiting, but then they need to not take reservations if they cannot accomadate.
My friend brought me to this place for ramen because we have been craving it. I must say I want to go back because it was delicious. Although, he didn't tell me I could bring my own drinks and I didn't read it as well, next time I will!
Just great fresh fish and seafood
Wonderful ramen and specialty rolls. We love tonkatsu ram en. Tiger shrimp appetizer, gyoza, shumai spicimoto and great sashimi. Very friendly and efficient service. We were there Halloween evening and they were so sweet to the kids. A small thing, we had leftovers and they packed them with fresh pickled ginger, wasabi and soy packets. Great value
Whenever we wre in Chicago we make the effort to get there.
We have been to this restaurant before and it doesn't disappoint. It is a bit crowded and as a result; just a little noisy for our taste. However, the food is outstanding. Creative sushi with the ability to please even those that say Sushi isn't my think. Wonderful vegetarian dishes that are still very flavorful.
This is a great spot. It does get very busy, especially weekends. Reservations are recommended.
Really well prepared and interesting food
Enjoyed the sushi here. Was busy, but service was good.
Great food and atmosphere! Had a great time celebrating my birthday.
Great sushi find in Edgewater. Unique fresh tasting sushi rolls. Good value especially considering the bigger size of sashimi/nigiri. Server was able to guide us to gluten free items and the sushi chefs were able to modify certain rolls to make them gluten free. Will defiantly be back.
Modest little storefront with surprisingly creative sushi. BYOB
Great BYOB hidden gem in the neighborhood and worth the time to enjoy the ramen and sushi
Great vibe and service! Really good sushi! Recommend the calamari salad, they serve it in a martini glass. Fun.
Food was great! Service was great! Small restaurant with sushi and ramen byob what else can you ask for!!!
BYOB is a nice feature to the really good sushi. Poke bowl and Ramen are excellent too.
Blowfish's food is consistently delicious, creative and an amazing value.
Sauce on Snowball is divine. Poke bowls okay.
Love the ice cold stone(?) hard containers provided for BYO white wine.
Overall experience was amazing. Delicious food and great service. It was a bit crowded cause the place it self isn’t that big but great atmosphere
Fantastic sushi, unique rolls and service was fast and friendly
It was a great place with AMAZING FOOD! Usually when my friend and I go out for sushi we end up with one of us having a not so great sushi roll BUT THIS TIME WE HAD THREE AMAZING GREAT!! SUSHI ROLLS! Amazing service. Definitely going again
Great BYOB restaurant - fish was fresh - menu was creative with numerous options.
Sushi was so delicious. Loved the stuffed avo. Everything about this restaurant was awesome.
We first tried ramen during a trip to Vancouver. We did not expect to find anything as good in Chicago. We’re happy to report we were wrong. Blowfish offers a menu chock full of options: Several options of ramen, along with Poke bowls, and a large selection of sushi. The service was friendly and efficient. Ambience needs work. The whole place was too dark - particularly the hallway to the restrooms. Nonetheless, we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner.
Snowball, Stuffed Salmon and Fugu-oh, my! Everything was delicious but these two appetizers and one roll stood out. We fought over the little bit of extra sauce on the Snowball. All four of us are definitely returning.
Food is great; they get packed quickly and never have enough servers.
The food here is always terrific, and usually costs less than we expect to spend on sushi in Chicago. Try their take on the shrimp tempura appetizer. It's not traditional, but it's delicious.
On a big holiday Valentine's day, where most people go out for dinner, you'd think a restaurant that takes reservations would know how to staff. There was one waitress and one host/expediter for the whole restaurant. Needless to say, there was a long wait for food. I'd asked that my veggie sushi be brought as an appetizer, but it showed up the same time as the entree.
I can't tolerate capsicum, so I picked the ramen specifically not listed as spicy...of course it was spicy, so my mouth was on fire whilst consuming said meal. I wound up eating the noodles but leaving the broth.
And then the long wait to have the table cleared and check given.
The veggie sushi was out of this world good, so I'm sure if they had been staffed my experience would have been more positive.
As it is, I wouldn't recommend it for special occasions, but maybe a midweek meal.
Great experience here! reserved for valentine's, got the table on time, food was great and service also!
Excellent food and service! Will be returning
Ramen was good, very tasty and a great portion. The Calamari is now in my top 5 in the city, and the prices are quite reasonable and as it is BYOB, you can have a great date for $40.
