Blue Fin - New York
Book your next event with us
Food was really good. Second time I ate here. Would go back.
Who knew that you could step out of the craziness of Times Square into a fine dining experience? We sat along the glass wall upstairs overlooking the bar chefs and those cool jellyfish light fixtures. Our waitress was attentive and eager to please, the food was delicious from appetizers (the ricotta and peaches) to the fish dishes (halibut and sea bass were cooked and presented to perfection) and when we could not finish the huge chocolate chip cookies, our waitress gave a special blue bag to take them to the theater with us. Perfect location for theater-going so we will be back!
Great food, drinks and good service
Their octopus was excellent
The quality of the sushi was very disappointing. The sushi in the suburbs is superior.
Great food and service!
The service and the food was very good. It’s a very convenient location is your attending a Broadway play.
Loved everything about it! Delicious food!!
Spring rolls, spicy tuna sushi, and tuna main dish were all spectacular! The waitress timed our food perfectly! Surprise birthday candle and amazing cookies topped off a perfect dining experience!!!
We had the BEST waiter. Listened to our diet needs, and went out of his way to satisfy every single issue we presented. Probably the best waiter in the universe. Food was delicious.
First time eating at this location. Went with my husband after a matinee. We had a wonderful waiter and our food was very good. We split the tartar trio (yum) and then he had the branzino and I had the Thai seafood hot pot. The hot pot was excellent. My husband cleaned his plate and gave a thumbs up to the branzino as well! Good, easy spot to hit after a show with good food and service!
Got to the restaurant just before the blackout in Manhattan. Got drinks before the lights went out. Wait staff was extremely nice and helpful despite the chaos. We were not able to order our food because they had to close the kitchen which was disappointing but I will definitely go back given the chance
I had a great overall experience, the Branzino was delicious and they drinks were fantastic. We were there during the blackout so our time was cut short, but all in all I highly recommend.
So I ordered halibut a la plancha, and received salmon. And then, the mid-town black-out hit, so it wasn't like I could send it back for the right order. A lot of diners just wanted to leave, and the staff was dealing with the rush, so the only thing I got was a price reduction for the difference. I'd like to believe that under normal circumstances, they would have done something to make it right.
Grilled Halibut and a French Martini. Perfect!
Don’t let the unimpressive streetfront right in Times Square put you off: inside and upstairs is a beautiful oasis of excellent seafood. A good but not huge range of well-prepared dishes, including a limited but very well done selection of sushi, makes for a very satisfying dinner. And don’t miss the spectacular blown glass light fixtures over the stairs: brilliant floating jellyfish!
Large portions of tasty fish dishes and interesting sushi roll optiions. Noise levels can be very high, but after the pre-theatre crowd departs, it's very comfortable.
It was a Birthday and then to the Theater to see To Kill a Mockingbird.
In New York to see Be more Chill.
Pricey even for NYC but yummy! Thx.
The bluefin food is so good the waitresses really nice they have a guy downstairs that took my OpenTable reservation right away and referred me to up go upstairs I like that because last week and some of the time if you make an OpenTable reservation the day of in an hour when you show up sometimes they don't take it and happened to me another restaurant in New York a few days ago and I don't like that I like them to take it right away and bluefin did
Overall it was a nice meal. My husband loved the ravioli. My halibut was a little lacking in seasoning but everything else was really good. We even went back for breakfast the next morning. The pancakes were delicious!
This lovely restaurant is right in Times Square and a short walk to theatres. The food was excellent although pricey. Definitely a good choice for a special occasion. We wanted to dress up and did not feel out of place but saw others who were comfortable in casual clothes so it can go either way. The staff were friendly and attentive. The ambiance is soothing and the staircase is a work of art - our table looked out over the staircase and we highly recommend that spot. I had the ravioli that was made black with squid ink and it was awesome. My husband had a steak that was perfectly cooked, tender, and flavorful. Our friend liked the margarita on the rocks.
This was my first time going to Blue Fin, with my parents. The food was very good. We had reservations so we didn’t wait for a table. The waitress was knowledgeable and friendly, she answered the questions we asked her. The price is high but the food is so good that I didn’t care we really enjoyed
We arrived on time for our 6:15 reservation and made it clear to the hostess that we had theater tickets. They seated us around 6:30, took our order, then ignored us. No food, no water refills, nothing. At one point, the hostess came by to assure us that the manager was aware of our time restrictions, but then we were ignored again.
I'd ordered gazpacho and sushi--cold soup and raw fish!--yet it took them 45 minutes to serve it. Yes, my wife had branzino--a hot dish--but 45 minutes? When the meals arrived, my sushi was room temperature. Edible, to be sure, but not appetizing.
With 15 minutes left to eat, we scarfed down our meals as quickly as we could. When I spoke to the manager about all of this, he made excuses when a simple apology would have been better.
Blue Fin is a flashy restaurant in a high-rent building on Times Square. Clearly the place is more interested in one-off tourist business than in repeat business. There are a lot of restaurants in New York. I visit frequently, so it's nice to have one to cross off the list.
Blue Fin is our go to restaurant when seeing a Broadway Show. The food is fresh, delicious and inventive. We had an amazing summer heirloom tomato, ricotta & grilled peach salad. The fish is always outstanding, and the staff, superb!
Amazing food and beautiful decor! Our server was Manny, so helpful and professional. Highly recommend and you must ask for Manny! We will be back for sure!
It is a great place for a business meeting, family dinner or date. Great ambiance.
Bad service, food not great at 1:00 on a Sunday. Would not recommend
Excellent service and food was amazing. Our server was the best
The service and attention we received were excellent. Both my wife and I have dietary constraints and the server and kitchen staff did everything to make our dining experience safe and delicious.
The food preparation was excellent. Our halibut was done perfectly as were the accompanying vegetables. Our dessert choices were unique and quite tasty.
The noise level in the restaurant was good. We usually have a great deal of trouble in large crowded venues when it comes to conversation levels. Not so on the day we dined there.
The only criticism we had was the halibut portion was quite small. The value was therefore impacted. In other words, delicious but small.
We have dined there twice before and plan to return in the future. We hope that our criticism is taken to heart.
I have been to Blue Fin many times and have always had a wonderful dining experience. Unfortunately, this time was negatively different due to two servers. Our waiter was a nice, friendly man and I have no complaint about him. However, we had two unhelpful, rude servers and it left an imprint on the whole experience. I can provide details. Despite this, I would highly recommend Blue Fin with the hope that this was a one-time problem and that, hopefully, there will be closer supervision of staff in the future.
Loved the Blue Fin. We both had fish that was delicious.
Loved our server Olga & the beet salad was amazing!
too expensive and we did not feel the best after eating there. restaurant very nice and staff terrific.
Always a good place to meet friends and family. The staff is always friendly and they never rush you. The ambience is pleasant and the noise level is good you can always carry on a conversation without yelling!
Good Thai fish soup. Plain grilled fish excellently prepared.
The restaurant was nearly empty, which was just kinda sad. The gods was mediocre at best. The salad was over-dresses; the branzino was fine but nothing special; the vita should bowl was plentiful but as with many restaurants, the fish slices were too thick. Our server was very friendly and helpful though. Overall this restaurant does not look long for the world.
Nice restaurant in terms of look and feel well located in Times Square.
Lowlight was the service....
Waitress forgot to bring out drinks and a main course.
She tried to recover by delivering cookies but by then we had had enough.
Great to exit the crush of Times Square to enter the sophisticated world of The Blue Fin. Close to the theaters. A perfect way to relax before the high energy of a Broadway musical, such as Ain't We Proud - The Temptations.
The staff was great and friendly. The sushi was fresh and well displayed.
