Andrew was the best waiter ever!
Brunch is consistently good.
Excellent restaurant right in the theatre district. We had the sea bass and the seafood hot pot. They we're cooked to perfection. We got in and out in time for our show and never felt rushed at all. Wonderful place.
Overpriced and pretty bad value. Basically a tourist oriented dining facility offered in the center of Times Square. There are numerous better values for fine dining that are more resonably priced within two blocks.
My wife and I did Valentine's day but stayed on the regular menu. Shrimp Wonton very taste, the beet salad was fresh, both fish dishes were delicious, sea bass and halibut cooked to perfection. The only issue was the service. Never asked how the food was, had to ask another waiter for water, she forgot my oysters and never came back with my wife's cocktail.
Cappuccino was well prepared, the pear sorbet was perfect. The brulee should not be chocolate with fruit. Tasted like regular pudding.
Need to clean the tables better, top and sides were slightly sticky. First round of water glasses had prints and grime. Staff should look at what is being set up for the next costumer.
Thank goodness the food was delicious.
A very delicious dining experience with lovely ambiance and wonderful service all in the heart of the Times Square area.
Excellent food and service. Definitively a good experience. If you have questions because other reviews my recommendation is just go there. You will enjoy it as much as my wife and I did it.
Food was excellent and so was the ambiance
Very good food and good wine. Good place to celebrate Valentine’s day. People are cheerful here.
The service was outstanding and ambience was great!
They sat us at a 2 foot round table. It was tiny. Had absolutely no room
Seemed very overpriced for the food quality
Sea bass was delicious....small portion. Lobster bisque was great. Very small table. Valentine’s Day a little hectic
Wonderful evening! We were greeted so warmly by the hosts and waitstaff. Our server gave us some wonderful suggestions for wine to pair with our entrees. It made a special Valentine's Day for us!
Easy dinner option prior to going to the theater.
Had a couple 🍣 rolls which were good. A bit overpriced for what it was but I am sure that has more to do with the location than anything.
I have been there numerous times and it doesn't disappoint me:)
great breakfast!! Coffee is amazing this is coming from a coffee snob
Good food, great atmosphere. Enjoyed the drinks and the waiter was courteous.
Had a reservation at 6:30, showed up a bit early (6pm). They couldn’t seat us yet, which was no big deal, we sat at the bar. Then it’s 6:45 and I had to go ask the hostess about our reservation. I could tell she forgot about us and she said she would come get us when it’s ready. She comes over 5 min later and says she has a table downstairs. Probably one of the worst tables in the restaurant, shoved in a back corner by an exit behind the sushi bar. Server was not very attentive, we had to flag him down to give him our bill. The food was excellent, but that’s the only good thing I can say.
Waiter was excellent. Would like to see one or two more chicken/pork items but they are great as advertised.
Excellent everything.. Brent is your best server!!
Went to Blue Fin for dinner before seeing Lion King. Our Server Patrick was terrible. Everything took forever from drinks to entries. I had a lobster that was overcooked. When I asked for more clarified butter it took forever to come out. I was finished with the lobster by the time it was delivered. Patrick never came by to see if things were ok. Went to use the restroom after dinner to wash up and it was a nasty mess. Only one urinal and that was clogged and two toilets that were a mess. The fixtures are stainless steel, looks like a prison cell bathroom!!! Sink area was a mess as well. Pretty nasty for a place that charges so much. Would never go back or recommend. Save your money go to Oceana!
Amazing menu, staff and overall experience. Will visit Blue Fin once again!
Excellent food and service
Food and service were great however portions were small
Food, service, and atmosphere were each amazing! Right in Times Square! Definitely recommend the Truffle Rainbow Roll!
Excellent waiter service during restaurant week.
We had a great experience at Blue Fin. Our server was great!
Came for restaurant week and everything was excellent. The service was exceptional. We didn’t feel rushed and yet were able to get to our Broadway show with time to spare.
Would definitely return.
i have been going to Blue Fin for breakfast for a few years. Most of the time, i order egg dishes and they are great. This time, i decide to order to French Toast, the dish come out beautifully presented, however, when i cut into it, it was mushy. it was very sweet. I only took a few bites. They charge $17 for it. I will not order that dish again.
I will stay with the egg dishes.
Had a great time, food was awesome, service great
We experienced top level service; the waiters were very friendly and always anticipated our wishes. The food was excellent; perfectly cooked and seasoned. Since the restaurant is rather big, it got a little loud because there were so many guests (which speaks for the quality!) but therefore maybe not the perfect place for a very romantic, quiet date.. However, for any other occations it seems perfect to me.
It was a good experience. The service was so so. We were a party of 5 and ordered very simple. But things all came at different times. It was pretty loud the waitress couldn't hear us or she just ignored us. I asked for a celebration of me and my brother's birthday (candle on the dessert) and nothing came. It was sad because we rarely see each other and felt this was a great place to celebrate it. We tipped very well but did it because it's the correct thing to do but not for the service. I had very high hopes for this restaurant.
good pre theater spot. service is attentive and friendly. seafood focus menu and lots of interesting cocktails.
Wonderful place for pre-theatre dining in the Times Square culinary desert. Blue Fin does not disappoint.
Dinner began with a kind and genuine welcome and service throughout our meal was prompt, professional and friendly. One of us had sushi and the spring rolls and the other the RestaurantWeek “Surf and Turf” which was delicious. The grilled shrimp were fresh and the steak tender and flavorful. The chocolate mousse dessert was simply outrageously good.
Unlike many area restaurants, Blue Fin is spacious and comfortable while the sounds level is conducive to conversation.
Of course we were taking advantage of the delicious winter '19 Restaurant Week menu however we enjoyed incredible fresh east and west coast oysters from the raw bar and some wonderful cocktails. The food is delicate and delicious and exposed us to flavors we had never tried before like Lotus Root as well as mushroom encrusted cod. Excellent! Our server was a real delight as well friendly and attentive.
It was my birthday and we came in for restaurant week. The waiter was very polite and even wished me a happy birthday. He offered a taste of 2 wines that he recommended and his recommendation was delicious. All the food was great! They wrote Happy Birthday on my dessert plate in chocolate and brought it a candle. The food was all delicious although my appetizer was a bit too spicy for me. I ate it anyway because it was delicious before the spicy kicked in lol. I also had pickled lotus root which I didn't even know was something you could eat. Gotta love trying new things!
My recommendation is to go for a late lunch. Otherwise you and your companions will not be able to hold a conversation. Yes, it is that noisy.
The food, butternut squash soup appetizer and salmon entree, was tasty and satisfying. Malbec from Argentina also delicious.
Service was attentive but not obtrusive.
We wanted to try this restaurant before going to a matinee show. It was quite crowded, but it was lunch time, in Times Sq and during restaurant week! We were happy to be seated in a more quiet place, but next to a staff station. The food was good. It looked like a popular place.
