I dined at Blue Fin right before all restaurants were forced to close. It was very quiet, but I had the most amazing experience. I had the roasted beet salad with mixed greens, the halibut with gnocchi, and the molten chocolate cake for dessert. Everything was amazing and my server Amine and the other staff were all so wonderful. I can't wait to go back once the NYC dining scene returns. Hopefully very soon.

Our favorite place for pre-theater! The food is fantastic! Love everything about this gem
Although it’s in the heart of the chaos of Times Square it’s the perfect escape. Can’t say enough!

An eye in the storm...right in Times Square, this magnificent restaurant was a welcome oasis of delicious food and outstanding service. The food is fresh, delicious, beautifully presented and priced fairly ( for New York). The service could not have been any better.

Would not recommend Blue Fin or any of the Landry restaurants. They trick you into joining their membership where they charge 25 to sign up and then promise they will add 25. When we tried to use the card they said it was not valid. Landry and Blue Fin are not an honest organization and again I would refrain from using any of their restaurants.

The food was not exceptional but overpriced. We had sushi rolls, salad and the mediocre crab cake. The lemon merengue pie was the best item ordered.

I went to Blue Fin for a birthday lunch, and it couldn't have been a better choice. I had the roasted beet salad, the grilled halibut with vegetables and grains, and the special profiteroles for dessert. Everything was amazing. My server Laura was absolutely fantastic - so friendly, efficient and accommodating. She made certain that everything was perfect - and even gave me a few chocolate chip cookies to take home. Blue Fin is my favorite restaurant in NYC.

This restaurant has improved in the last year. It used to be very expensive for very little portions. This time my salad was packed with delicious fresh lobster and all the things that make a Cobb salad so good. Service was friendly and efficient. I would definitely return.

Food and service were excellent. Great value for a Sunday brunch that included a cocktail and loved the vast array of food choices for Sunday brunch.
Look forward to returning soon. Highly recommend.

Celebrated a birthday on 2/22 and the server provided outstanding service. The food arrived in a timely manner so we were not rushed, and it tasted delicious. It would be nice to see a couple chunks of lobster meat in the bisque but it is rich and creamy.
Will definitely be back!

Terrible restaurant on Time Square. I can’t believe the restaurant is part of W hotel. Food was really bad and sushi cold. The temperature in the restaurant was really too low, needed to wear my jacket.

The food was of good quality. But they were out of things on the menu on a Saturday night!! That was disappointing. Sushi was good but not exquisite. The service was not that great. We waited 20-30 mins just for a glass of wine. I expected a lot more from this restaurant considering the area and the prices. It was an OK place. They also had informed open table that I did not keep my reservation which was not the case.
