A friend and I ate at the Blue Fin after seeing a Broadway show. The restaurant is in the heart of Times Square. We were seated right away at a table on the second floor of the restaurant. The menu includes a variety of cuisines to choose from. They offer sushi rolls, salads, seafood appetizers and entrees. As with most NY restaurants, I found it a little pricy but the quality and flavor of the food was wonderful. We both had the Thai seafood miso soup special which the kitchen split for us. This gave each of us a cup of soup for the appetizer, which was plenty. It was delicious and so fresh with a hint of spicy ness. I had the tuna dish with lo main and shitaki mushrooms. Wonderful flavor and tender fresh fish cooked to perfection. The entrees range from around $30 on up with a few in the high $20 range. I would recommend and will definitely be going back

None of the seafood at a seafood restaurant is fresh caught. It has sustainably raised seafood however not fresh. Obviously for seafood restaurant not to have fresh seafood it’s ridiculous!
I asked multiple times the waiter for the same thing and he did not bring anything I asked for in a timely basis.

I don’t mind paying the NYC prices but didn’t meet my culinary expectations! Halibut was over cooked and dry. Lobster Bisque salty and starchy with only about 1/4 teaspoon of lobster on top.

Our meal was the perfect after theater dinner. There were options for our very selective children and our whole family had a great meal. The wait staff went above and beyond with our menu and ingredient questions. The chef even answered some of our specific inquiries. A definite recommend! The seafood is beautifully prepared and there are delicious non-seafood options for the land-lubbers.

In the city for a Broadway show. Dined here as we had done so before and enjoyed it. Since we were early (5PM) it was quiet when we arrived but the crowd picked up a lot by the time we left. Excellent food and attentive service. We will keep Blue Fin on our list in the future

Favorite place in the theater district/Times Square. It’s hard to find good food and drink in Times Square but Blue Fin always delivers. Ate at the bar upstairs. The bartender was great. Super friendly and she knew a lot about wine. Found a new favorite sushi with jalapeños. Tasty!

Blue Fin came highly recommended by family in NYC. So we had pre-Theatre dinner there. Our food (all sushi, with melted s’mores dessert) was outstanding. Fresh, delicious & well-prepared. The ambiance was so loud & noisy we were shouting across the table to be heard. The bar adjoining the dining tables had ‘top 40 Hits’ station playing- really?! Add to the already cacophonous scene? Stupid. The service was extremely sparse & distracted. Way too many tables for way too few servers. Would recommend with caveat of high noise, low service, great food & drinks.

We've been regular goers to this restaurant since the early 2000s. But it's been a couple years. It's still a nice restaurant, but it seems tired. Food was OK, when it used to be great. Staff was good however.

The elevator was not working so it was up stairs to get to the main dining room. There were a few tables downstairs in the bar area/lobby. The cookies that were warm for desert were a nice ending to the meal.

I had the beet salad and the sea bass. Both dishes were amazing. I always order beet salad when it’s on a menu and Blue Fin’s version is what every other beet salad wants to be. Ditto for the sea bass with rice cake and sesame marinated grilled eggplant. I saw patrons ordering sushi and other raw bar items. The SB from Sancerre was delicious as well.

Food was good but not exceptional. Crowded everywhere in the restaurant. Too many stairs to the restrooms for us. Actaually hard to walk Between the tables and the barstools to get to the bathroom. Location in the Broadway area is convenient but there was not a lot of character or ambience to the property
