They are always excellent on both food and service! I can’t wait to go back!
The sushi was amazingly fresh and buttery. Such a treat. Pricey but worth it.
Food is always outstanding!
We have long experience with Blue Fin and it is always EXCELLENT!
Excellent Izakaya, small plates for sharing. Quality is superb.
The best sushi experience bar none
If you enjoy sushi and Japanese cuisine this is the spot for you. $$ but well worth the money.
Blue Fin has been a favorite of ours for 3 years. It remains top notch in all regards.
Nothing was good
This restaurant had very good value for Omakase ( a kinds of course menu) menu but not at all.
Especially it was not smooth serving. Our first course dish came before we were waiting to order for drink.
The food was very good and well prepared.
Made tanke reservation for 6 at 8:00 pm.
The server and the whole staff looked the door after us at 9:30-they vhere top anxious to get home.
I always look forward to a meal here. The sushi, sashimi, salads and lunch specials are great. This time, unfortunately, I was noticing the place needed to be spruced up. All the fabric on the upholstered bar stools was hanging loose at the bottom and the walls are ready for a coat of paint. This affected the usual air of pure perfection.
The service and quality of the food have declined quite a bit. Very sad.
Very attentive wait staff and good location. Some nigiri was really tasty (hamachi in particular), but we tried a few items we haven't seen before which were surprisingly bland. Considering the cost of the sushi, that was disappointing. We probably won't be back.
Great food! Chef Abe is very cool!
Really love Bluefin! Best sushi restaurant in Newport Beach by far. Easy parking in Lot in front of restaurant. Wonderful sushi & sashimi. Could go here multiple times/week if I lived here! ( As it is, we go 8-10X/ year. Specials always fresh and great along with always fresh & good regular menu items. Great wine list.
You can’t miss here.
Sushi and Sashimi were so fresh and fish to rice portion of Sushi was right.
Great fish selelctions fro Sushi and Sashimi and the food was prepared the Japanese chef!
Price is a high end but the food was well worth it.
Great food as usual. Sushi is very fresh. Service seems rushed this time. Servers were anxious to take our plates away even before we were finished.
Love the food here, even though it’s pricey, the quality is outstanding!
Birthday dinner for the wife yet no celebratory nature from any of the staff members. I would have expected at the very least some small desert offering after the meal to have a full experience with the wife and kid yet was just given the bill. I confirmed with the hostess that a birthday was indeed noted on the reservation. She told me “it depends” when they offer. Interesting choice of words.
Best sushi! Very authentic and being Japanese I am very picky. The fish is so fresh from Japan! If you want to be adventurous and have a very authentic experience then go for the Sushi Omakase, it’s all the Sushi chef’s selections for you. Also the sake choices were outstanding!
Thank you very much for offering great service. This meeting went well. Thank you very much for attention to detail about OpenTable comments which I wrote. I love chirashi sushi. With sushi have two choice for regular and deluxe. I will choose deluxe.
Bluefin is always the first restaurant we go to when we arrive in the Newport – Laguna Beach area and our last stop before going home.... and we go there several times in between. The food is excellent, very fresh and great preparations. We love the crispy tuna. The service is superb. I highly recommend Bluefin for any special occasion as well as every day dining.
Anticipated a nice Birthday lunch with my friend. I would say the worst thing about this restaurant is the service. I was so embarrassed to have taken my friend here as we were practically ignored most of the time. They are so overpriced and ran out of a type of fish my friend ordered and was told they only had enough to fill 1 my order as they brought food to table. (Mind you, this was HER BIRTHDAY) Zero communication skills and a rip off is my opinion of this place. Not sure anyone would be satisfied with this happening on a friend’s birthday. Tables are so close together I couldn’t have the private conversation I needed to have.
Crispy tuna! Ummmmmmmm! Live crab! Can’t get better than this!!!!!! We’ve been in Newport for five days and we have eaten there twice!
most amazing sushi i’ve ever had
Great sushi as usual!
Birthday dinner that was amazing!
Best Miso soup ever. Food is excellent. Service was just okay. Wait staff made no effort to interact...very cold. My husband was disappointed because he called earlier that morning to ask for a surprise birthday dessert. They said they would bring something at the end of the meal, and never did.
Wonderful sushi and drinks and great service as always!
The most authentic Japanese sushi I have had so far in Southern California. We felt a little rushed/pushed at first (we were sitting at the sushi bar). maybe we were slower to order since it was our first time. After that, we had excellent service, an older sushi chef that was really friendly and lots of really good fresh sushi, and nothing OVER sauced!! The best edamame, cucumber and kelp salad I have had! We ordered off the board and were not disappointed!! I was shocked at how expensive the prices were (sushi by the 1 piece) but the pieces were big and the cut rolls were really large. So, not a bad value after all! We would definitely go back for great sushi!
Felt pushed to finish early even though we had omakase
Honestly for a bill that exceeded $250. For two people, one being 12, the service should have been much better. Our waiter did every thing except deal with his tables, he was in the back for a long time, he chatted with the host for a long time, he waited table like he had no idea what he was doing! Even the table next to us had issues. We dined there on thursday june 21st. Management should look into that-
Ellent high quality seafoods, also created, speical display beautiful!!
Our overall experience was very good. The food was excellent. My only disappointment was that we indicated on our open table reservation that this was a special event [birthday], but that information apparently never reached the server. Not too big a deal because it was my birthday. A few years ago, another restaurant made a similar oversight on one of my wife's birthdays, and we've never been back.
SO sad....unfortunately, what was once my favorite restaurant is not even in my top 20. For over a decade, I've absolutely loved this place for its imaginative and delicious cuisine. No longer. The quality is good but used to be stellar. It was always a bit pricey, but they have now doubled the prices. The prices on the nigiri menu have not changed, but you now get 1 piece instead of 2. I've been recommending this restaurant for many years, but I can no longer, in good conscience, do so.
The food was good but very expensive, not sure it's worth it - Nobu prices but not quite the menu choices. Their sushi is good but not like I remembered it when it was outstanding, a bit disappointing.
Worst tasting Japanese food we ever had. Flavorless, bland and overpriced. How this ranks high is beyond belief.
Absolutely delicious. Rolls expensive but you get 12 pieces. Sushi is priced per piece. I think it’s fresh and flavorful. It’s expensive but very tasty.
