I very often have weekend brunch at Blue Fin. The portions are generous and the food very good.
I especially enjoy the glass of champagne! The service is friendly and extremely attentive.

We dined at Blue Fin on a Friday evening. While our waiter was kind, he was not very attentive and the service was very slow. I suppose that may be due to it being located in Times Square and it being a Friday night. Despite that, I felt the table next to us received better attention and service (possibly because of complaints made by that table to the waiter about the lobster). As far as the food, we had: 3 East and 3 West Oysters (decent, west were incredibly fishy), the Fluke and Tuna Ceviche (good), the Tomato and Peach Salad (great, maybe the best dish we had), Sesame Crusted Big Eye Tuna (good, but salty), and the Halibut (good, gnocchi was great). Overall, the food was good, but cannot say it is worth the trouble. It will not be on my short list of places to go back to in New York.

Katherine, the server, was very good and made sure check-in with us... The food came out less then hot... mostly warm... We didn't have the time to ask for it to be redone - so accepted the way it was. Everything did taste good.

We had the miso glazed sea bass and it was outstanding. For appetizer I had gazpacho and my friend had spring rolls. All delicious. Blue Fin is one of our go to Pre-Theatre restaurants.

We had a very nice experience at this restaurant, we will definitely go back. Our waitress was very nice and the food was tasty. My salmon was perfectly cooked. I only wish they could adjust the spice is the dishes, they are too spicy for me to order.

The atmosphere was very relaxing; a dramatic change from the hustle and bustle of Broadway. They are bread alone is reason enough to go back again. I had the special of the evening which was diver scallops and they were very, very special! Their service was extraordinaire.

In my mind, one of the few "foodie" options in the theater district. Many seafood options, perfectly prepared as composed dishes. And one of the best chocolate mousses!

Our server was outstanding, aside from this its super overpriced sushi in a touristy part of town. Wine selection was ok...

This used to be our 5-star go-to place in NYC. On this visit, it was just a nice place to eat. No specific complaints, it just wasn’t the “wow” dining experience and personalized attention we’ve consistently experienced on many previous occasions. I guess Blue Fin is entitled to an off night, right?

We often enjoy a meal at the Blue Fin when visiting NYC in association with attending Broadway shows. The food has been reliably delicious and the Times Square location is perfect. My lobster Cobb salad had lots of tender lobster and a tasty dressing. My spouse was enthusiastic about his sesame crusted tuna. The three ice cream sampler was very good also.

We ate there before a show and we waited forever and no one seemed to care. We went early so it was fine, but it wasn’t ideal.
