The sushi at Bluefish is the best. Our server was nice and the bus service for our table was actually really great! (More attentive) The ambience had been nicer in past visits. This time while they seemed busy it was a little disheveled- looking.

Sadly this has been one of my go-to sushi places, but no more. I am gluten free, which they used to easily accommodate, but last night the female manager (I didn’t get her name) basically told me they aren’t going to have gf items anymore and she didn’t really care if she lost my business. She said they’re moving and so changed all of their sauces. (What?) You mean to tell me you can’t make a spicy mayo sauce in a few minutes for a gf order? Are you a fast food restaurant or a fine dining establishment? She said using Tamari instead of soy sauce in the recipe had nothing to do with the higher cost, but taste. Well, I can tell you having had Tamari and Soy sauce in the past, that whether you’re gf or not Tamari always tastes better. It is however, more expensive. I didn’t mind paying extra (and did last night for them to use fresh scallop without a pre made sauce for their jungle roll) to make it gf. I won’t be going back here, there are too many great sushi places to be loyal to one that has no interest in keeping those loyal customers.

The lunch specials were excellent and the atmosphere was just fine. My friend and I arrived for our 1pm lunch reservation a few minutes late and were seated around 1:10. The server was very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. We were having a great time until exactly 2 when it became very clear the server wanted to rush us out. We asked what time they close and he said 2. When we left at 2:10 we were the last ones in the place and our server and the rest of the lunch staff had already left or were zipping out the door. So, if you want to relax and enjoy lunch, you better show up by 12:30 or so in this otherwise very nice restaurant.

The food was amazing -- this joint has some of the most fresh fish I've ever tasted. The service however was just slow. I waited 20 minutes just to have a server come over, and nearly 10 minutes just to have drinks brought to us. Everything after that was a little quicker, but I wasnt sure why it took long with so much staff present. I will give it another shot since the food was so good!

GREAT service. Awesome waiter was really cool at guiding me to some good pairings and smart combinations instead of an easy big food ticket. Amazing fresh food that is original, pretty, creative and original. Yes, original rolls and combos! Lovely drinks that are well made and hand styled. It was more about the food than the presentation (I never saw a “boat”). Generous rolls were more than a mouthful. It’s nestled into a residential/retail combo that is kinda awkward, but the food will make you forget (or, at least forgive.) I would gladly return.

Recommend anything with “Dragon” in the name, but particularly the black one. The house salad was fantastic and enough for two. Drinks were perfectly made.

Food quality has really declined over the last 2 years. Sushi is just average at this point, and seems like it’s now designed more for takeout than dining in.

We always just order in from their Glenview location but it was our boys birthday and they wanted to go there to eat so we couldn’t get into our regular location and went to park ridge instead. We sat at 7:30. They were out of co2 so no soda was available, out of Jules Taylor Sauvignon blanc and only had Cloudy Bay, which is $5 more a glass, they were out of oysters that my son and husband had wanted. The crispy rice spicy tuna (which we always order at the glenview location) was barely crispy. I don’t even think they cooked it on all sides. The rice was still white. All of the sushi though was very fresh and delicious and we were out of there by 8:15. We loved the quick service but wish they were more
preprepared. We will stick with carry out at our favorite location in Glenview for now

Very noisy would be my only negative coment. The restaurant lays out long like and narrow which could be a part of it. If you like sashimi it's very good.
