We'll stagger your plates so you can savor it all bite-by-bite, and maximize the sushi experience you've been craving all week. If you're not sure where to start, tour the menu during Happy Hour, where all our guest favorites — from our sushi, grill and drink menus — are available at an amazing value.

    The wait staff was very attentive and the food arrived quickly. The food was very good. Although the music was loud, we were able to converse without yelling. The only negative was the wait time. We arrived prior to our reservation time and waited approximately 20 minutes past our reservation time to be seated. The table at which we were seated was visible from where we were waiting and had been vacant and cleaned when we arrived and check-in with the hostess. The hostess staff seemed a little disorganized and I am not sure how the staff was determining when tables were cleaned and available for guests to be seated.

    We visited blue sushi for the first time this week. It was a semi last minute date night, but we were able to get a reservation. We had, I think her name was Tabitha, as our server and she was fantastic. My husband has a fish allergy, he can eat shellfish just not regular fish, and they take that allergy very seriously. The manager even came to our table to ensure he put our order in himself, so no cross contamination would occur. We were blown away by that and very impressed. Our shishito peppers were fantastic and the sushi was fresh and delicious. We can’t wait to go back!

    Blue Sushi is my new favorite restaurant in Birmingham. The service is amazing- we had 3 different servers come check on us, one gave us a free appetizer since it’s our 5th visit!! The food is impeccable, you can’t beat their ichy sea bass and tidal wave roll. The tuna tower and crispy Brussels sprouts are another fav. Drinks are on point too!! I can’t say enough great things- 11/10 highly recommend!!

    This place is so awesome. Our waiter was a little behind getting our drinks (which was so fine) and we got a free appetizer and many apologies. The service goes above and beyond and I couldn’t recommend this place more. The food is so amazing and probably my favorite sushi in Birmingham! 10/10!!

    The service was terrible, but the food was good. I walked in the front door to three people at the host stand- not one spoke to me. I overheard them talking about “just waking up” and not wanting to be there. After five minutes, they acknowledged me. I sat down and was asked my drink order. It took TWENTY minutes to get water (at 5:15 on a Monday!). When I was ordering, my server seemed to not be able to understand their own menu. The whole experience was frustrating. Again, good food- but unsure if the service was worth it.

    Our service once seated was wonderful, food was great, we arrived early thinking it would be nice to have a drink at the bar and that's where the service was severely lacking. When the bartender finally took our order she proceeded to have a conversation with multiple people around the bar, (guests and other staff) before even attempting to make our drinks. She made one, delivered it, went on talking to people before making the second. It took 30 minutes to get our drinks and close out.

    Kaylin was AMAZING!!! She was super friendly and the ADM Carson was just as amazing. I hope I spelled his name correctly, but I frequent this place and have always had great service, but they were spot on with everything and really cared about getting things correct. I could tell that Kaylin was really new, but even when she messed up she made it right. We will be back next week!!!

    Great food and decent prices. The drinks are really what makes it stand out from other sushi restaurants, so if you’re not planning to drink, it’s not really worth the extra cost of food.

    We have been to Blue Sushi several times and the service has been lacking every time we have eaten there. Last night it took 25 mins to get my glass of wine and 30 mins for my friend to get her martini. She wanted to order another but the waitress said it would be another 20 mins or more!! Our waitress wasn’t accommodating and we had to ask for more water. It’s to bad bc the food it usually pretty good and the atmosphere is nice (but it’s noisy). Not sure if we will be back…it’s an issue that doesn’t seem like they can correct since it’s been like this since they opened.

    If you’re looking for a place to go on a first date or cheaper end date I would recommend going here! I will definitely be coming back here in the near future. The service was excellent, food was phenomenal! I got the tidal wave and it might have been the best sushi roll I’ve ever had
