Today's Grilled Fish (please ask your server). Served with Miso Soup, Salad and Rice
Incredible food, great service, well set-up for outdoor seating. Yellowtail with jalapeno in yuzu was incredible, as was everything else we ordered. Bonus points for being one of the only restaurants to carry Suntory's The Premium Malts, a beer I had in Japan (at a sushi bar, no less) and hadn't been able to find anywhere else in the US.
Bluefin offers outdoor patio dining as well as indoor table and sushi bar options. We opted for the Omakase Lunch special which is a great deal at $50. The sushi quality is always superb and the amuse bouche are exquisite. We had 5 bite-sized appetizers (including tuna carpaccio, homemade tofu), 4 pieces of sashimi, 5 pieces of sushi (including yellowtail toro and uni), soup and desert, a chilled poached pear with ice cream and berries.
Unfortunately, the quality of the food has gone down hill at bluefin. It has always been expensive, but I never used to mind because the quality was extremely good and the value seemed well in line with the price. I have not got that feeling the last couple of times going to bluefin. For example the heirloom tomato and cucumber salad had very poor quality cucumbers… Mostly end pieces with excessive skin. ... And the tomatoes were very subpar. It was really more of a jicama salad than anything else. It just was not impressive. Their Sushi and sashimi used to take my breath away, in the way it was arranged and tasted, and its freshness. I did not get that feeling this time (or the last couple times). I think maybe their location has given them license to dumb down their food, thinking that it’s Newport Beach and they can charge a lot without being exceptional.
Food fabulous. Nice outdoor seating with heating.
It's really hard to find good quality sushi anywhere and Bluefin is one of the few places I trust for quality, fresh amazing sushi, and Japanese cuisine!
It is definitely good and inventive menu with specials. However, I want more customer service when I sit at the sushi bar. Talk to me, ask me questions, engage with me. No such luck. The restaurant didn't mean my expectations.
Everything about the dinner was amazing. From food to service to ambience and COVID precautions. Will definitely be back.
I’m disappointed little bit😵Last time was better Omakase. I’ll try again😊
Excellent quality and excellent service! It was a nice change to sit outside on the patio too...
Bluefin is our favorite sushi restaurant. We. Only live here part time and every time we are in town, we try to go.
We have never been disappointed. All the fish is so fresh and especially love the Bluefin roll! I’m glad you are back open and look forward to more visits soon.
Very Special. Top quality and authentic Japanese cuisine.
Interesting dining experience with a different touch than many sushi restaurants. We really liked the food, the way the tables were sectioned off and our server was attentive. We would go back
Food was great! The service was lacking. I finally got up to request the check and the hostess helped, while our server continued to ignore me.
Absolutely fantastic food, the best sushi in all of orange county. Sometimes the service is a bit lacking but the sushi chefs in and especially Mr. Abe do incredible sushi and starters. Can’t stress enough how great the food is.
Outstanding quality and value lunch. Mine was chirashi, my wife's was "bento", both outstanding. Extremely fresh fish.
Terrible sushi. Ordered omakase. At 9:20pm they started to clear up the dining area and heaters. Weird. Never got some items from the omakase and the waitress disappeared after giving us food never to return.
Delicious. I loved the chawan mushi and the sashimi was awesome.
We were seated right away when we went at our reservation time.
The food is excellent. I felt like I was back home in Japan when I ate food. We ordered chirashi, sushi lunch special and Linch box. As a restaurant owner, I can tell how much work behind if each dish is. And we all appreciated that and enjoyed the taste of it.
Wonderful outstanding restaurant as always has been.
This is our favor restaurant.
Their food is amazing. The Sashimi Appetizer is wonderful. I highly recommend this place. The outdoor patio is well heated and very comfortable...
Nice location in Crystal Cove Plaza. Nice outdoor seating. Great service. Good sushi.
Great food! Best Sushi in OC! Good Service but not great.
Terrible service; they used to be good. BlueFin busboy, who was delivering our food, kept having his fingers inside all the dishes. The waiter pretended that he doesn’t speak English. Disgusting! Spent $200, came home hungry.
The food was surprisingly good, the apps/soup were great and the sushi was pretty good as well
Great food and service. Always satisfied!
The food was great. Freshest fish and generous portions. You’ll be pleased.
The dining experience was just ok. Outside dining would have been better if they would be able to block the sun a little better.
Service was really slow given the minimal amount of guests that were being served. Should have been much better given the price you pay.
If you’re only coming here for the food, then I would recommend. For the dining experience? I would choose an alternative.
For amount of the money you pay there service is very poor , our server was not friendly at all he brought food to table after one hour and there food was ok not great .
Food and service were exceptional! We will be coming back soon :)
The food and service were, as usual, superb. The sashimi was fresh and delicious. The chawan mushi (the ultimate comfort food) was as good as my mother’s. I love this restaurant.
Excellent menu, excellent and welcoming service, outdoor tables were perfect, food was great.
Their foods and services are excellent as always. My friends and I enjoyed everything at Bluefin. They never disappoint us! I highly recommend Bluefin to all to have fabulous dining experience.
Good food very fresh !
Good ambiance, setting and service. This is second time we went to the restaurant, the first time sushi was outstanding, but this time it was OK.
Excellent food! Pricy but well worth it. 😋Highly recommend!
Outstanding! Highly Recommend. Great food, great service, lovely and convivial ambiance, beautiful and artistic presentation of cuisine. Look forward to returning!
We come here often. The rib-eye is amazing, the Bento box a favorite. Always lovely. While in a shopping center, it seems quiet and you have a view of the ocean. I then go to Williams Sonoma, what is not to like. A favorite for sure!
gen was a great host
