Overall the food is good. The noodles we ordered are not good tho. Too salty. However the roll is very nice. Will recommend to reserve it since it can be very busy.

We've eaten at Blue Fin before but this occasion was Mother's Day & it was my choice. I love fish, all kinds. Our starters were half dozen oysters (Eastern & Western) and their trio of tartares (salmon, tuna and hamachi) -- all incredibly wonderful. The tartares had wonderful texture and seasoning and were melt in your mouth. The oysters offered a variety of sweet and briny. Oysters are a relatively recent passion of mine and I want to go back to Blue Fin and try their Shelfish Tower. For our main dishes, my husband had sesame encrusted tuna over noodles -- tuna was perfectly cooked, rare in the center. I had sushi -- hamachi, toro, uni and a rainbow roll. All delicious. We skipped dessert but frankly I would have had more sushi for dessert. Service was excellent and not intrusive. We shared a bottle of white wine (chablis, I think) which was also very good and a good accompaniment to the fish. The restaurant is also very lovely and a nice place in the middle of Times Square -- you don't feel crowded or sandwiched in. Very comfortable.

Heard so many great things about Blue Fin was dying to try it. Maybe Mother’s Day wasn’t the best choice because it’s so busy but for a place like this I guess my expectations were too high. Food was great but the rest of the experience left a lot to be desired.

It was Mother’s Day, so more hectic than usual. To call the noise level “energetic” is polite. But it’s still my go-to place for pre-theater brunch.

What a great restaurant to have right on Tines Square! Considering the location, it’s quite a find. The sushi was very fresh and innovative. We had the special salmon sushi and dragon roll. Our main courses of of sea bass and a special striped bass tasted amazing although not particularly creative. Drinks were tasty. We had the mule and the prosecco elderflower drink. Dessert was just ok
It took a while for us to be served but we weren’t going anywhere and we did let our server know this. He was very friendly and even took our picture for us. Overall a great experience

We had a great pre-theater meal.
Fresh fish and sushi, plus gluten free friendly.
Waiter brought a gluten free roll to me without me asking.
A fun and lively location.

They had nice music, which was great! The ambiance is nice with good lighting. Good presentation on the food but not memorable, although the oysters were fresh ... it was my birthday and the waiter brought assorted cookies with a candle in a very nice presentation. I loved the detail.

Perfect Pre-Theater location. I hate Times Square, except for the theater so it is very hard to find a place which knows how to get you in and out without it being overrun with tourists.

We went here since it was close to the Theater. We had sushi and it was mediocre, service was slow, keep in mind this was Saturday night, and cinco de mayo. But the reservation was at 6:15 and they should have had more staff.

As a native New Yorker, the idea of "foodie" and Times Square" in the same sentence is laughable. (Yes, there are good food choices on the side streets.) But there is one laudable exception -- Blue Fin. Despite its having changed ownership three times over the past several years, it continues to provide top-quality, chef-driven meals to locals and tourists alike. In the past three weeks my wife and I have eaten there twice, a rare occurrence since there are so many other pre-theater options. This past time I wanted to go back for the Farmers Market salad with burrata; it's one on the best salads I've had in years. At $17 it ought to be, but we shared it, and they split it onto two dishes in the kitchen, so we each had a beautiful presentation. Then we also split (we avoid large meals prior to sitting in a cramped theater seat) the Swordfish special. The fish was slightly less moist than it could have been, but the accompanying mushroom/truffle ragout with fresh peas was worth the trip alone.

Great for Perth eater only. Lots of better fish houses in NY. My meals was ok, kind of bland, so much so I've forgotten what I ordered. Rolls are pretty good but an odd rendition of a spicy crunchy tuna roll. Grilled octopus was rather nice. Skipped dessert.

I had the lobster and shrimp spring rolls for appie they are fresh and absolutely delicious, I loved the half lobster and abundant clams squids mussels in the Thai hot pod.
