Service could be improved. This place felt more like a club than a restaurant. They had no soap in the bathroom. I had to call to their attention that they overcharged me for my meal and the waitress tried to explain it away as if it were a tax issue. I had to request the menu to explain that the tax in NY is 8.875%, not 15%. They also charged $30 for a plate priced on their menu for 29 (the salmon). All this makes one wonder if these mistakes are really mistakes or intentional. I will not be returning. Sad, because I worked on Landry’s/Golden Nuggets bond deal for Mr. Tilman Fertitta to buy the Houston Rockets and thought it would be a nice restaurant to try out.

Disappointed with the limited options in the brunch menu, had a disappointing experience with the food, manager did make amends though. Took way too long to get drinks and food, especially for a limited menu

Although it was crowded, we were able to hear each other without having to talk loudly. I had the halibut, she had the sea bass, we shared the cauliflower. All excellent. Wine selection was good. Vodka tonic not skimpy on the vodka. Overall, good place.

My business lunch was not on a Broadway matinee day so Blue Fin was fairly quiet. Very attentive and pleasant service, tasty and well-presented food and a comfortable table. Perfect for the occasion, I plan to return.

We love this restaurant we eat here quite often when we trek into the city for a Broadway show. Laura was our server and she was fabulous.. was a pleasure chatting with her. Such a humble and friendly human ! Food was delicious as always.

We ordered a ton of sushi which was brought very promptly and our waitress was extremely knowledgeable about the menu and was able to make recommendations based on our preferences. Everything was delicious. This is a must-go when in Times Square.

Got there early and they told us we could either be seated late or sit at the badly lit sushi bar. We sat at the bar and since no one ever came to clean the table which was still dirty from previous diners, and then no one came to take our order or give us water, after waiting five minutes for help, we left.

Have been coming for a decade or more... food is good/ I am especially a fan of their sushi, but not what it was in years past, both in terms of the sushi choices and the taste combinations. I miss the amazing sushi of Blue Fin Past. Now its just good sushi in the theater district.

We had a Pre-theater reservation on a Saturday night. The Maitre d’ sat us in a corner room away from the main dinning area at a table for six when we were only a party of three. When I asked for another table, he told me the private room we were in was very desirable. I had concerns that the service would be slow given how out of the way the table was located. Our server did his best to get us out on time, but the maître d’ was extremely rude, did not offer to comp anything nor apologize. Basically told us we could wait until another table opened up or leave. The food was very good, but I would not recommend this restaurant.

Always a pleasant brunch experience before a weekend theater-matinee. I would NOT go here for dinner - hyped and overpriced. This meal was great - new waiter was very thoughtful and will be a great addition to staff. The busboys are always too aggressive in removing dishes before you are finished. It is customary for them to ask @may I take this?” Or “are you still working on this?” - but they just TAKE IT. I had to request he bring back our bread plate. The place needs an update - it’s most glaring in the bathrooms - very 1990 in there.

Convenient to the theatre. I’ve had better rolls for less money, but it’s the city. Cheese plate delicious. Wait staff nice and attentive.

We made a reservation for brunch here on a Sunday and we are glad we did! The decor is stunning, the food is creative but not crazy and the prices were decent. Very cool mojito flight! Great choice - seems far removed from the crazy that is Times Square.

First time at Blue Fin and won’t be the last. Picked here because or the reviews on Open Table and it did not disappoint. We had a reservation for dinner before a show and a arrived a few minutes early. Table wasn’t ready so went to bar for a drink.... as luck would have there were 3 open seats ..... bartenders were friendly and accommodating. We decided to stay and eat at the bar which was a great choice. We ordered a couple of sushi rolls which were great and the orchestra size seafood tower..... everything on it was fresh and perfectly prepared.... and for $148 it was a great value.... the 3 of us had plenty without any problem.
Great find in the middle of Times Square.

Having Made a reservation two weeks in advance I thought we would have a nice table but we were shown to the very back room which was empty and had the ambience of a Howard Johnson’s they did she change our table on our request but our server seem distracted did not mention the specials to us and the food was not as good as I remember

Limited menu, but the food was excellent. It is advertised as a Sushi & Seafood restaurant which I did not realize. I just remember I have been there several times and always found something delicious to eat. I would go back. Classy place.
