Our server Steven was very attentive, it was a nice experience. The food was great and most importantly we didn't wait to be seated, we had a 1900 hrs reservation and we were on our table at 1905.

Our server was excellent, a real professional. I wish I could remember her name but she was just fantastic. The bisque soup was incredible and the sushi was bright and flavorful thanks to the creative use of herbs. Truly unique.

This was our second visit. The food was exceptional
the first time, not so much this time. Maybe it was just an off night. The decor is modern with a nautical theme, but cozy. The service is excellent , all of the servers are attentive and friendly.

Business dinner for 2, we were served promptly. Had a great sea bass roll for an appetizer which was delicious. Soup, salad, poke, and cooked fish were perfect. Esteban was out server and he was excellent. Will come back for sure.

We were looking for a seafood or sushi restaurant and this is both. Went for post - theatre dinner as it was right around the corner. The downstairs bar was closed and a sign directed us to the hostess upstairs. After a cool reception and acknowledgment of our reservation we we seated at a booth in the very quiet restaurant. A very few tables were occupied with diners finishing their meals. Our drinks and food were excellent (halibut is melt in your mouth with a superb lemon wine sauce and red snapper was inventive and tasty. Our waiter provided attentive service and the sorbet trio was a delicious finish to the meal. However, the ambience is quiet and cool. A quiet respite from Times Square but unexciting and somehow disappointing at this time of night.

We've been to Blue Fin every time we've come to NYC. It's a little oasis in crazy Times Square. It's the perfect pre-theater spot. It's relaxed with good food and service. Enjoy it every time.

Been there many times and this was the outlier. Very poor service. People who delivered the meals had no idea who got what - that doesn't happen in a good restaurant. One person ordred rare Tuna and it came out well done. Sent back and second one ALSO came back well done. 15 minutes after ordering wine and none delivered. So it was a comedy of errors in a place we have been to at least 10 times and always had a great experience.

Then Seth took over and did all he could to make it right. In the end, he comped most of the meal. And we got out in time for our shows.

We will most certainly return for two reasons. We always loved this restaurant and we are impressed that we were heard, acknowledged, validated and compensated. I own a business and one can always screw up. Seth handled this perfectly.

Overall, we enjoyed our dinner at Blue Fin. The service was good and most dishes were excellent. One of our cooked entrees was quite dry. They have a kids' menu, which is a real plus in NYC if you need it. My main complaint is where we were seated. The main dining area is lively and has a great vibe. We were seated in the back room, which felt very bland and cramped, like an overflow space. It definitely didn't feel like the other areas. I would happily go back to Blue Fin, but would request a table in the main dining area.

Enjoyed a nice dinner prior to attending a show. Food was very good, decent selection but out of 2of the wines I chose so ended up spending an extra $40:00. Good location and good service on a busy Friday night. I would return again.

One of my go to restaurants in the theatre district. It use to be a great place for people watching, but the restaurant has been divided into two different venues, and you no longer have any view of the outside world. Disappointing, but because of the location and the food we will be back.

We went for Sunday brunch/lunch before attending the theatre. Brunch included a drink-mimosa, etc. and fresh farm eggs if that is your thing. On Sunday, there is a minimal list of lunch items, but sushi is also available, and what we had was excellent.

One of my favorite things to eat is a burger, and this was one of the best I ever had. You could taste the difference in the meat, the bacon, and the egg enhanced the overall flavor. We also had the crab salad, which could have had a little more crab, but overall refreshing and exactly what we needed.

There was a good selection of wines by the glass, and we enjoyed a rose and a white. Overall a great food experience.

Overall it was a good. We got there At 4pm and was hoping to be able to order from dinner menu, but brunch menu turned out to have breakfast so, good for some and bad for others in our group. Food was mostly good. We didn’t care for the chicken sandwich. The pumpkin pancake & seafood tower is excellent!
