At 7 on a Friday we were one of 3 groups in the dining room. We were all sat right next to each other with 20+ tables available. Will never come here again

Great food. Service could have been better. It was not a busy night but our waitress seemed to be busy with other things.

The food was fresh and good but the servings quite small and price high. I knew it was going be pricey but spending $125 for two and leaving hungry not such a good value.

I stayed next door to Blowfish Sushi on a business trip. The location was super convenient and the food was pretty tasty - HUGE menu, it's kind of like the Cheesecake Factory of sushi. Great for a quick bite, though beware of your timing as it seemed to be turning into a nightclub before we finished our meal... disco lights and super loud music.

I really can't rate this restaurant because it was closed for maintenance when we got there. After driving over there and meeting up with friends, it was very disappointing and embarrassing. I do not who's to blame Open Table or BlowFish Sushi, but I most likely won't choose this restaurant or book through Open Table again.

We were here for my birthday...loved that they put us in a private area where it was not to loud! Food was good but service was slow and keep messing up our rolls!

Very good and creative sushi. But the interior is run down (duct tape on run down fake leather couches - maybe it's a design element and I just didn't understand it) and I nearly left based on the biting smell when I entered.

There isn't as much sushi selection as other places. It is pricey for what you get but that is to be expected for any place in Santana Row. Bottom line, there's better sushi places.

I was in San Jose, and decided to see how this compared to SF with my son. Great cocktails, good food as in SF. But I'd say the booths need a replacement! A full booth was covered in black duck tape that we sat on. Completely ridiculous given the cost. I don't have an issue with the cost, but jeez keep the place up already. Plus every TV (and there are several) have sports. I despise the suburban "I have to have sports on or no one will come" vibe. If I were on a date, or had taken colleagues there I'd have been disappointed.

The food quality was okay, not too flavorful. In my opinion, not worth the price.

Must say that the experience we had last Saturday night wasn't very good. Restaurant was barely busy, yet the service was well below par. I think the staff must be new as they mis-delivered everyone of our dishes. I brought up the fact after the fourth occurrence and barely got a reply. Food is overpriced for what you get and there are much better options for Sushi around. Definitely will think twice before visiting this location again.

I flew a client out for the iHeart 80s party and had been referred by a friend, only to have an Sergio experience. Waited over 10 minutes to get seated when there were multiple tables available. We all ordered cocktails, waters and an order of edamame. After 20 minutes, our edamame came out, BEFORE our drinks!! Not even water was served and we didn't even have napkins/silverware. Waited another 5-10 minutes with zero service and walked out, leaving cash on the table for the edemame. Absolutely horrendous, and I recommend that diners avoid Blowfish like the plague.

Very Loud even when the restaurant was 50% occupied, difficult to hear the person across the table, not recommend for a business dinner. The food review was for Sushi rolls and sashimi, below average vs. other options in the area. Perhaps the other menu items are better. I suspect that youngsters and non sushi critics would have a more favorable view. Waitress service was very good.

This was once a great place to eat sushi, now everything is poor, not worth time or money.

Creative options for sushi and the Tuna Tartare Pyramid is a must!
As loud as any restaurant I can think of, so conversation is tough.
Good nightlife scene and the bar was busy on a Friday.
