A very nice restaurant with a good menu, delicious food and fine service. We were seated in the private dining area in the back and it was very cold there--don't recommend sitting there. A good choice food- and service-wise for a pre-theater dinner.

I enjoyed myself, but I would like to see some less-creative food. We all loved our food but none of us cared for the busyness of what came with it.

We had a 6:30 reservation in advance of an 8:00 show. The table wasn't ready when we arrived and we were told the other guests were just leaving. At 6:45, someone else came over and offered us a drink and said the table would be ready in about 10 minutes. We booked the 6:30 reservation so we had time for dinner without having to rush. We were offered a table in the bar instead of the dining room. We rushed in our order and were asked if we wanted bread. That never came. The food did come out pretty quickly, though 3 of us only ordered a couple of appetizers each so we didn't have to wait for a bigger dinner. The food was good when it came out and we made the 8:00 show. It would have been nice too eat in the dining room as the bar area is small for dinner. We had a reservation for a specific time and it's unreasonable to be seated 30 minutes late.

The food was delicious and the menu very creative at Blue Fin in NYC but we found the service to be very rushed. When we sat down at 5:30, we told the waitress that we had a show at 7 PM. We ordered soup, a hot appetizer and some Japanese food as our main dish. We wanted things to be brought slowly. They served the hot appetizer with the soup and brought our main dish before we finished the first two. We asked them to slow down because we felt rushed.

I would not recommend this place as the steak was very tough, our food was bland and our server was rude. Not worth the money at all. Drinks were mediocre at best.

I had high expectations, so I guess I was disappointed. The food was just mediocre;however, the sushi and lobster bisque was to die for! Def a place for pre-post broadway. I’d recommend it, ONLY FOR SUSHI AND DRINKS.

Love love the food. We went after an early theater show. Place was relatively empty. But still we were basically ignored and had to call out to different waitstaff to get our order in and get drinks etc. They could do better

Went for lunch prior to a Broadway matinee and was disappointed to find out they only had breakfast/brunch menu available on weekends. If I had paid more attention when making reservation, I would have chosen another restaurant. Food was good, service also. Place was empty and quiet, maybe because of the limited brunch menu.

Excellent sushi and seafood in upscale atmosphere with attentive service. Among the best oyster stopovers in town. Also try the lobster bisque. Refreshingly consistent top performer for a decade in relatively baren area of the theatre district.
