Our sushi was great, over priced. Our waiter Didn’t speak English well enough to describe anything on the menu. I would go there again. There are plenty of great sushi places in OC.
The fish was not properly prepared in the salad- odd shapes and chunks as if they were leftovers from sushi preparation. The tempura uni was a watery. The lunch omakase was served without any fanfare and barely audible explanation of what the plate contained. The experience should be a $$ meal at best.
I’ve eaten at sushi places all over Japan, Bluefin did not disappoint!
Perfect as always!
Food was outstanding - freshest possible sushi and service was top notch!
Everything was perfect as always! Will come back in a few weeks!
Super fresh and tasty fish. Prompt food delivery to table. Comfy chairs and booth seating. Loved seeing the sushi bar action and how engaged everyone was. Seemed like there were many regulars!
Excellent sushi! Being Japanese I can’t go to most sushi restaurants because I’m always disappointed but Bluefin is authentic and superior on all levels. I drive 1 hour to go here!
Fantastic food. Great service. Good variety and all sorts of fresh offerings.
Can get very loud.
To start I’ve been here many times and had great meals. In this day, however, the sashimi was dry and did not taste fresh at all. This included 4 different fish on single rolls. This was a Monday, so unlikely to get fresh deliveries that day or the weekend. The broth in the lobster soup was delicious, but the piece of lobster itself was quite poor - tasted burnt & over cooked - actually you could see the burnt claws. I hate to think they might be trying to pass off old, inferior cuts of raw fish to unsuspecting guests - I cant be fooled by poor cuisine.
It was my birthday, didn’t get anything special, like most restaurants do.
We had the Omakase, fish was of poor qualities as usual, Blue Fin, should invest more in their fish’s for sushi.
May not go back again.
Delicious !!!!!!! Great food ( crispy tuna, fresh crab, Bluefin roll, edamame, ). Ratha and Jason were super servers! The entire staff is very friendly
Great sushi experience as usual!
I would like to talk to the owner. I have sent emails but don’t go through..we loved dinner but our reservation over the phone seemed like it was going to be great but when we arrived with a slight disability it was super uncomfortable with the host...we up front shared the disability
No one should feel uncomfortable when spending premium price for a meal
Blue Fin is one of my frequent visit restaurant! We always have very good meal ty here!
Sushi fresh. Good sake.
I hope they will have some plum wine in the future
This is not a gay friendly place. I will not eat here anymore.
The miso cod here melted in your mouth like butter! So delicious, the only complaint I have is everything is ala carte so you pay extra for salad and steamed vegetables. Hand rolls were yummy too, everything was great! Really enjoyed, highly recommend!!
Bluefin Restaurant is a family favorite! The service is friendly and professional, the food is consistently delicious and the atmosphere is warm and welcoming.
We were taking clients here. It is a great neighborhood restaurant with authentic quality. Very high end. Take those that appreciate this type of Japanese cuisine. Service is spot on!
Went for a birthday dinner and the food was amazing the chefs were funny and very entertaining. We had the chef’s omakase. Every dish came out was fresh and delicious. Definitely will be coming back again.
Exceptionally high quality fish. The best of my experiences in Orange and San Diego counties in over 20 years. Excellent and friendly service. I will go again.
Always excellent, always the best. Great restaurant, great food and great service.
Forgot 2 of our rolls that we ordered, a large group at the bar was being extremely loud and we could barely hear ourselves.
Service was superb. Attentive as usual. The food outstanding.
Our favorite restaurant.
Outstanding sashimi! Noting more needs to be said! Beautiful location and interesting OC crowd.
Excellent food, service and ambiance
One of our favorites. Abe is the best sushi chef in Orange County. Creative and traditional. Don't come to Newport Beach or Laguna without trying Blue Fin.
Food was amazing and service was great. Nice quiet restaurant for fine or causal dining. Great value for the money- lunch Omakase- must try!!!
Outstanding service and atmosphere. All fish was phenomenal and had outstanding flavor!
This review and poor rating is for this one visit primarily due to lack of care and response from staff. Have noticed a downward trend here for some time but kept going because we really loved the food. We have frequented about once a month for many years. This trip we were extremely disappointed. Food was ok but not great this time. Service was poor, unfriendly and completely indifferent as if they are getting tired of doing this. Had a difficult time just getting tea refills.
Reservation was only two hours after opening for the day. We all ordered the Mother's Day's multi course. An item was substituted out without telling us. When questioned they said they had sold out of the item. Later we observed the same item being served to others who arrived after us. When questioned again, they said the item was not sold out but the chef made the decision to change ours. (WHY?) Because of the confusion, we asked to speak with the manager and they replied that he had just left.
Mixed feelings here because although I do not want to I do give it up, I feel compelled to not support this restaurant's behavior. Suggest you visit this establishment and make your own decision, just be aware and don't let them treat you like this. (It spoiled our Mother's Day .)
Best sushi there is!
The baked crab roll was absolutely delicious, as was the Hawaiian martini!
I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT BLUEFIN!
We dine there at least once a week and we love the consistency of Bluefin.
A family get together dinner and it was a wonderful dining experience. The 2 teens loved their sushi experience and the 11 year old totally enjoyed the avocado and crab salad. The other entrees were superb. This is a new restaurant on our list of places to return to.
Excellent food, great service, very welcoming and warm staff. Miso soup is highly recommend!
Fantastic authentic Japanese food
Everything was wonderful for our Easter Day lunch. The food was delicious. The service was great. The small cutout Easter bunnies out of carrot and daikon in the chirashi were so cute!
