Absolutely loved my experience at B2 Bluefin. Beautiful restaurant, fantastic staff, very attentive and the food was delicious. Would absolutely love to return and can not wait to do so!

Oh and for review’s sake, we ordered the crab and lobster cakes (rather small but delicious), the shrimp sundae (tasty!), shrimp tempura rolls, salmon avocado rolls (tasty classic choices), the Noname I was really good and the one with the Oysters was pretty good. It does have truffle oil on it though and I’m not so sure if I like truffle oil too much. They even brought out a cake with a candle for my son’s birthday! And that was reaaaally tasty too. But I enjoyed it a lot. Thank you!!

Nice, upscale restaurant in the City Ave area. It was a bit hard to find due to its location inside an office building. The menu was fairly extensive with typical Japanese fare and the prices were a good value. They have a nice happy hour menu, but it's only available at the bar.

We've been to B2 Bluefin a few times and decided to come out for NYE! We had a great time as usual. Our server was excellent. I had an issue with one of my dishes and let her know and she was very apologetic and asked if there was anything else on the menu I would like to try. I told her I would take a look at the menu and let her know. During that time, the manager came out to apologize as well and offered to have the dish remade because and ingredient seemed to be missing and he also provided us with complimentary drinks as we waited for my dish to be recooked. It was very kind of them and showed exemplary customer service. We definitely appreciated them rectifying the situation. We had a wonderful time at B2 as usual and this experience made us appreciate them even more.

Their décor is fabulous, modern and clean. Very nice BUT no one was there. The restaurant was empty. it is totally a waste of the space, which is huge. They have toro, that was great BUT other fish are relatively old and nothing special. I love their wasabi lobster fried rice. It was great.

First time at B2 and it was good but not great. The vegetable spring rolls were spectacular crispy on the outside with a wonderful filling. However the tempura vegetables were under cooked. The vinegar chicken gyoza were also good but with only three in a serving too costly (it is after all a dumpling dish). the sushi rolls were of good quality with the mushroom roll creative in presentation but a bit too much liquid making it difficult to stay together. The presentation of the other rolls was uninspired but tasted good. The mochi and fried ice cream were well prepared and quit good. The cocktails were of course great.

I absolutely love B2! Every time we are there the food and service are so great! Our favorites are the spicy tuna sundae and the touchdown platter to get a good variety. Can’t wait for the next time.

Unusual and delicious selection and preparations. Superlative sashimi, fish was fresh and smooth as butter and tobiko sweet and crunchy as it should be. Even the miso soup had depth. All together a delightful dinner and server. The only issue is the huge, cool room that echoes sound. The wide tables are lovely but also make it hard to hear dining companions.

We had an amazing meal in their private dining room. Our waiter Gin was so helpful and when we left if up to him to bring us his favorite and most popular sushi, he did not disappoint! Our entire group was thoroughly please with this delicious meal.

Expensive but worth every $$$$. Make a reservation because it gets really busy. Would be amazing with a large table of friends. Just the two of us, but we enjoyed a slow paced meal.

You get what you pay for.

Top notch sushi and Japanese cuisine, excellent service, great energy and good value. Located on City Ave, with local road access to Gladwyne and the eastern Main Line, and easy highway access on Route 1 and i76 to the western Main Line and Philadelphia, it is a don't miss dining experience.

Fabulous service although some of the dishes could be better. This kitchen inadequately represents Yong Kim’s food.
The green house salad was drenched in dressing that needed more ginger. The quality of the sushi is excellent. The oysters are often too cold and the sauce is not quite right.

It was our first time at B2 Bluefin, and it was great. The food was excellent, and the service was also the best. It is especially nice to find such a comprehensive beer and wine selection at a sushi restaurant.

Highly recommended!

The 10 course omakase was marvelous. A great variety of small plates from oysters to mochi. Each course was well paced, and well plated. Japanese whisky selection is unmatched in the area.

Excellent food and cocktails. Our waiter was very distracted but that is unusual, they are usually very good. I find the large room noisy but I think others like the openness. Best sushi in the area hands down.

We had a table for four at 8.00pm on Saturday night. We were sat promptly , Drinks came nicely a few minutes after ordering. We ordered Appetizers at the same time that we ordered drinks they also came in a Timely fashion. the food is to die for.
Our Main Course arrived , we were not offered Cutlery even though my son had a Pork Chop and I had the Poussin. We asked and they arrived. Again the food is to die for.
The waiting staff were very attentive a came back to our table many times checking.
Once they cleared dinner no offer was made if we required coffee or dessert. We waited 12 minutes before I could get the waiters attention. He explained some desserts to us, we were not offered a dessert menu. We selected a couple of desserts then had to stop our server leaving to order coffee, it seemed like an inconvenience to him. The three coffee arrived with no cream or sugars, we had to again ask for them. The desserts we had we really uninspiring, a great shame after the quality of the first two courses. I am always amazed at how customers are almost forgotten after a main course,. The last impression of the restaurant is bad service and mediocre food. This after everything being perfect both service and food up until the clearing of the main course.
This is an expensive restaurant they almost has it perfect. To really perfect their act they need to realize that the meal ends as does the customers experience when they walk out the door.
Fine Dining means attention to minute detail.

This past weekend was my wife’s bday, having come to B2 in the past I knew it was the place to go... I wanted to make the night very special so I decided to make a special request via the Open Table app. I requested a few minor things that I knew would set the night off in the right direction... a specific table near the sushi bar and specific piece of sushi that my wife loves. We arrived on time and were seated immediately, The Manger had my requests on the screen and already had staff aware.. As we sat two glasses of champagne immediately hit the table followed by my sever promptly taking our order... I HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND for a special occasion, the chef took time out of his night to greet us and explain different courses, he even went as far as sending a special plate to our table at his expense. B2 has exceeded my expectations yet again, this is why we continue to come back... The menu is exquisite and service like non other. I can’t thank the staff enough and I’ll continue to come back and dine..
