My my my...I had a bad experience (pre theater lunch) with poor service several years ago.
I vowed never to return but since time has gone by (6 years) my friends convinced me to give it another try
The restaurant is half its size but quite pretty and as requested, we were put in a quiet area.
The server took our order and disappeared for an hour
So, now, the menu... OMG...I had always enjoyed a large salad with tuna or other ... but not for $30 dollars!
And a burger for $28... we were blown away. The prices were equivalent to any steak or fine dining place in the city
An app, 3 small little taco cup for $18. No way. There is better for less in many local restaurants

Blue Fin is in the perfect Times Square location for pre and post theatre seating. You can sit downstairs and people watch or soak up the ambiance in the main dining room on the second floor. I would advise against sitting in the two dining rooms on either side of the main dining area on the 2nd floor as they are significantly warmer. I have yet to be disappointed by a meal. Try the lobster mashed potatoes.

Great, reliable pre-theater tucked away from the hell that is Times Square.

Recommend the tartare trio, sea bass and, if they have it, the crepe cake (outstanding).

Blue Fin has been a pre-theatre dinner go to for several years. Always good service, food and ambiance. The last two times I have been there, my guest and I were ushered to a back room off of the main dining room. The ambiance is non existent and the furniture is not the same and quite uncomfortable, i.e wooden chairs vs upholstered ones that are in the main dining room. I'm not sure how one is selected for Siberia but if you are, the staff is very accommodating in moving you to the main room....at least they were in my case. I will still go back but will make sure I request the main dining room when booking a reservation.

This is a regular haunt for me and it was a quiet day. Our waiter was pleasant as was the busser. sorry I do not know their names. The food was not as good as normal, FF were limp and the normally wonderful crabmeat salad did not match its past glory. However, will return. Thank you.

Really enjoyed eating here. The sushi was amazing and such a huge selection as well. Their filet Mignon was very good for those not liking seafood. Waitress was very patient with us as we asked our questions through the menu. Daughter has a severe food allergy to dairy. We were very impressed with how serious they took it and that severe staff members were aware and spoke to her personally.

went for my birthday, this place was great! Had the tartare trio and the tuna as an entree. The tuna over the lo mein noodles was so delicious and filling. Then split a molten cake for dessert. Service was very fast, we were in and out in about an hour. We went just before the show rush at about 530. Would definitely come again!

Had such a pleasant experience here. We got there about 4:30, so they were switching to a dinner menu at 5 and we just enjoyed drinks and appetizers before then. The food is suberb, but on the pricier side, so be aware of that going in. The seseme seared tuna ($37) was excellent.

Very good seafood in the heart of Times Square. For appetizers I had lobster bisque which was excellent and she had something like a spring roll which is also very good. For entrees I had the shrimp rigatoni and she had the Thai Seafood soup or something like that. Hers was very good with a nice presentation and tasted great. Mine was okay certainly not bad but nothing to write home about either. Perhaps it would have been better with some Pecorino Romano cheese. Service was excellent without being intrusive and the prices were quite reasonable. Very good wine selection. Also the bread was very tasty. It was essentially a mini wheat or multigrain loaf and if you like bread you probably would probably like it. I would definitely recommend and may very well be back the next time I'm in New York.

Was staying at the W next door and was not expecting too much for a hotel restaurant.

I was pleasantly surprised as all our dishes were excellent. The black sea bass was my favorite as it was cooked to perfection--moist and flavorful.

Had an early dinner before going to a play we told our waiter so. The service was efficient and did not feel rushed and we got to our play in more than enough time.

Next time we are in the area, we will surely go to Bluefin.
