Good sushi, friendly servers, easy parking (across street) and lively atmosphere make for a pleasant dining experience. Close enough to Pepsi Center for a pre-event meal. Seasonal, outdoor sidewalk seating. Inside of restaurant can be cool, due to AC. Getting the bill may also take a while, so ask well before you're ready to leave.
I recommend the restaurant and plan to return.

Went on a Sunday at 6pm and happy hour lasted until 8pm; there were many appetizer, drink, and sushi choices on the happy hour menu that were very affordable. Our table of 4 had a lot of fun and the service was very friendly. The sushi looked and tasted good. Get the Blue Crunchy or whatever, that was my favorite. I'll probably be back for a fun date.

We are vegetarian and they have a great selection of unique and tasty vegetarian sushi as well as other options.

They also have an expansive selection of sake.

Great menu,happy hour specials and sushi. The crowd on the night I went was diverse. Great atmosphere for small or large gatherings. The only thing I didn't care for was the film of fish playing on loop and the small aquarium next to the bar. I find that a little sadistic .

Blue Sushi is our go to spot for sushi. The happy hour menu is expansive and well worth the effort of heading downtown. We tend to gravitate towards the appetizers and nigiri (cherry bomb is the best!), but the rolls are pretty good too.

Great place for Happy Hour. HH menu is a scaled down version of their main menu, so you can definitely make a meal out of it. Recommend HH is you are looking for reasonably priced sushi and with a friendly wait staff.

Not your standard sushi place, but good. The rolls were interesting and tasty as were the drinks. We came in early (530) for happy hour with 2 tween kids. It was comfortable for our family but still on the hip side. Happy hour was a great deal and the servers were super nice and helpful. Probably wouldnt bring kids there after 7 as it was more bar-ish.

This place is not a traditional sushi restaurant -- the focus is on rolls rather than nigiri. It's fine; nothing special. If you want high-quality, more traditional sushi, there are better options.

I have walked by this place several times but I've never actually stopped by until now. I read the reviews online, looked at some photos, and decided to reserve a table for my friend's Bachelorette Party. It was perfect! The waitress was very friendly and accommodating. She even split our checks without any hassle! The food was good and the drinks were fabulous! Everyone was really impressed and had a great time.

So most everyone in our party of 8 is a sushi lover...Needless to say they LOVED it! My wife said some of the best sushi she's ever had. The two non sushi lovers..myself included weren't happy. Our meals were small and not filling. I ordered the Ceviche as a meal and it was small. Another (petite woman) ordered some chicken and found herself ordering an extra portion to fill up. Once again the sushi was apparently excellent so it's hard to complain but figure I'd make it known for the non sushi fans.

Btw....I made the reservation for party of 6 instead of 8 on accident and they were very accomodating. No complaints. ..just work on your non sushi menu and I'll return! Otherwise great job!

My husband and I were given a gift card to Blue Sushi and had been told it was good...and it was just that. Nothing to write home about. We say at a terrible two top table basically in the middle of a hallway. We have other sushi restaurants that we would prefer to go to.

We decided to go to Blue Sushi after reading the Yelp reviews. I eat sushi all across the US and have to say this was a great spot. The nigiri pieces were very fresh, the sushi roll selection was great as not everyone in the party was wanting raw selections. The service was spot on. Would definitely recommend this restaurant to others. We'll be coming back next time we are in downtown.
