With Sushi so common in the bay area now - it is good to have a high end sushi restaurant that shows creative choices, has unusual selections and creative fusion options, and isn't just like every other sushi place.
We always have great food here. When we feel like really good sushi we always go here. It could be a little pricey but I think it’s worth it. The service can be a little slow, but we did come on a Friday night and the restaurant was full. Their cocktails are great and I like how they have others options, whiskey, sake, beers. Whenever we want a treat we would always think of going here.
Did not honor the reservation. We arrived at the reserved time, saw an open table, but it was given to someone without a reservation who had arrived 5 minutes before us. Was asked to wait 30 minutes or sit at the bar. What’s the point of OpenTable again?
Reserved table at 7pm (they require credit card for Valentine’s Day), and was told to wait 20 minutes. After 20 minutes we were asked if we could sit in the bar area. We said yes as we were already behind schedule. So we essentially reserved a table for special occasion and ended up in bar area where Ambiance and service were both down a notch. Food turned out to be bland as well. Just the same as an average sushi place, just double the price.
Love the baked salmon roll!
The blue-fin tuna was melt-in-your-mouth amazing. All the rolls were delicious. Get there before 6pm to save some money on the happy hour specials, they're all good.
Restaurant wasn't busy at all on a Monday night, yet the service was still kind of slow. We had to work hard to place our orders.
All in all, though, a good experience, and amazing food.
Great sushi. Very disappointed with the asparagus pepper special. Had only 1 complete spear in entire dish
Sashimi was fresh and tasty. Service very good. Easy walk to SAP Center.
The roll was cold, the rice was dried
We really enjoyed our dinner at BlueFin. The fish was fresh and tasty. They have an amazing happy hour which I highly recommend taking advantage of.
Pre Sharks game
Food was yummy. They were busy but the service was still quick and friendly.
Excellent sushi selection but slower than usual and usually they are pretty slow. Server was right there but food prep takes a very long time.
Made a reservation for Friday night, we had a girls get-together after years of not seeing each other and we had the best time. The service was great, the food was equally as good, we stayed until nearly closing and the servers remained super attentive. Happy Hour prices were great - the drinks were strong. All in all I will definitely return because it wan't super crowded, they have TVs and it's a great place to go out.
Great all around
Excellent menu. Quite a good variety for all. We had sashimi and nigiri. It was fresh and delicious!
They have a great happy hour before Sharks games. A must for Hockey fans.
The quality of the fish here is outstanding. In fact, all the food is amazing. The staff is consistently amateurish, however. And while I love the quality of the food, I don’t make this a regular spot because the service is maddening. Appetizers come out way after everything else, beverage service is spotty, and menu items that are not available are not explained until after your order has been placed. If you want awesome food and don’t care about service, go! I still do, but with lowered expectations.
We go to Bluefin a couple times a year for celebrations. We went tonight to celebrate our 1-year anniversary of our marriage. The ambiance was different than what we were used to. There was a football game playing on the wall in the dining room. I think that is more appropriate for the bar area and took away from the special dining experience. Most of the food was to our expectations except the whole reason we were there: the sushi. We ordered the Rainbow roll and it just fell apart. We noticed the sushi chef looking at a menu a lot like he was using it to figure out what went into the rolls. Overall, we were not as impresses this time around. We will probably try something different for our next celebration.
Service was really slow and I found a bone in a piece of nigiri (not supposed to be there for those not familiar...). Restaurant tried to make it up with a free desert - we chose the chocolate soufflé - however it came out burnt on the bottom... would have really wanted to like the place, but ended up leaving disappointed.
Excellent dining experience. Great selection of sushi and sake’.
Every last bite of food was outstanding. Even their wasabi is exceptionally flavorful. Will be a regular stop when I visit San Jose.
I was so pleasantly surprised by my dinner here. The food was delicious and the bill at the end was way less than I had expected. It is also walking distance from SAP Center so it's a great spot for dinner before a show or game.
Omakase... Wasn't anything like an experience I have enjoyed in New York or LA. Wouldn't recommend it yet if you are ordering off the menu the food is great.
The food was delicious and creative. The waitress was just the right amount of attentive and friendly and service was fast. The booth seats were very comfortable and the restaurant had an enjoyable atmosphere. Parking, on a Tuesday evening was plentiful in the parking lot (at least some of the street parking has local resident requirement restrictions).
I've been there many times and this time was such a disappointment. We arrived at 5pm and there weren't many patrons. Our appetizers came quickly as did our miso soup/salad. The entrees arrive with exception of mine. The waitress FINALLY told me that they forgot to make mine (or did she forget to put in the order). She said 5 minutes. 15 minutes later, I received my dinner. At this point, my friends were done eating and I felt rushed to eat as they were waiting on me. I wanted a refill on my lemonade and she confirmed it was lemonade, but brought me a sprite. It was just an overall disappointment. As convenient as it is to the Shark Tank, I'm no longer impressed.
We went to Blue Fin before a Sharks game and loved it. The fish was really fresh! It was crowded so service was a bit slow but we still made the game with plenty of time to spare.
Excellent service and Excellent food!!!! I went with my faughter for lunch. It is great for quality time and very quiet and peaceful!
The seafood was fresh and served timely when we ordered. The have a good variety of seafood to please your sushi tastes.
We had the best sashimi we have ever had! It literally melted in your mouth. We will come back just for that! Also a quick walk to SAP Center.
