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!
This is one of our favorite sushi restaurants in Orange County. We have been a fan of Mr. Abe's dishes since he was in Newport Beach years ago. The fish is very high quality.
We have been coming here for many years, so i have to say that this is the first time we were disappointed. The otoro did nòt seem very fresh and felt like it was frozen too long and thawed so that texture was too soft. And price of raw fish has steadily increased to an unreasonable level.
Great fish and food. Will be back
The quality and presentation continues to be top notch and rivals any sushi in the United States.
Great restaurant in all regards--food, service, helpfulness of waitstaff. We love Blue Fin!
Creatively composed, excellent quality sushi and other omakase that is as satisfying to look at as it is to eat. Service is very responsive and unobtrusive with seamless coordination between the sushi chef and wait staff. Not everything was to our taste, but it was all part an experience we highly recommend.
Amazing food, friendly chef!
Best sushi restaurant in So Cal! They never disappoint us. Food and service are excellent! Big applause to Chef Yoshi ! We can’t wait for our next visit!!!
Really great food and service. I will return the next time I visit the area
excellent food & presentation from Chef Abe, always.
Overrated and lackluster food. Service was non-existent. Would definitely not return.
We came for OC Restaurant Week and were really excited to try this restaurant. Though we enjoyed our meal, the service was horrible. The woman who was working the front stand was terribly rude. She was very short when speaking to us. We made reservations via Open Table but she was trying to seat us at the counter. We had specifically asked for a table in our reservations because we had a toddler. Although there was a table available, she refused to give it to us saying that the table was reserved. Ummm.. we had a reservation for a table too......In the end, we got seated at the counter, and the other people never showed up for the table reservation. As we left, I looked at her and she refused to look at me. Most likely she realized she made a terrible move and was trying to avoid looking at me to admit her mistake. Even though I enjoyed the food, dining out is about the entire experience. I will not return to this restaurant and will let all my friends know to avoid the stuck up service at this place. If you are not carrying an expensive bag or wearing luxury brands, they will treat you like a second class.
Excellent, superb sushi!
Wasn’t a fan of the OC restaurant week menu, sushi was great though
Amazing service, food (THE FOOD!!!), and the ambience is very nice. Awesome experience at bluefin for OC restaurant week.
Thank you, Bluefin and OC Restaurant Week for the most lovely weekday afternoon meal I have shared with a friend in recent memory. The lomi lomi salmon was clear and fresh with the perfect acid, while the crab claw and tofu were not just beautifully presented, but were perfect bites. The view from the counter and interaction of the sushi chef’s was engaging and entertaining. The OC Restaurant Week value and experience were exceptional.
We didn’t realize that it was the first day of OC Restaurant Week. We went to have regular Omakase lunch. But it turned out it was a great prefixed lunch from RW menu. We love their beautiful and delicious foods and professional service by chefs and servers. Bluefin never disappoints us!
food was exceptional on the night we were there...attentive staff, good recommendations.
The sushi is excellent and the sushi chefs are pleasant. Fish is fresh and properly prepared. Many different and interesting choices. Wish service was decent. It was totally lacking and not friendly. We had a reservation for the sushi bar and were barely greeted and then were told we would need to move if a larger party came in and wanted the bar as well. Host/ server was not pleasant. Hope for a better outcome next time.
Superb sushi. Attentive, pleasant service. Noisy. Expensive.
