Blowfish is always on my shortlist of favorite restaurants. The food is amazing, the price is perfect, and it’s BYOB. Working my way through the menu and loving every trip.

Nice hostess and waitress. The food there is delicious and really reasonably priced. I brought a couple beers and our waitress immediately brought an opener. I don’t believe there was any “opening” surcharge. I will return.

Had amazing Hand-rolls and Poke my companions had Ramen. Everything was excellent. I only took off an ambiance point because we were seated in a corner next to the sushi bar on the way to the bathroom. I suppose I shouldn't do that since I didn't choose another spot.

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

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.

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.
