The food is always great and the service is quick with friendly faces that are on top of everything! It gets busy in the evenings on weekends but it’s never a long wait.

There’s a few must tries at this restaurant. First of all they have a great drink menu and the service is usually good. The booths are spacious and the decor is updated and pleasing. There’s a cucumber mint salad that should be tried, the smoked salmon sashimi is always amazing and sliced a little thinner than some places which I enjoy. The Panko crusted scallops were a little greasy and heavy so I think that could be fine tuned. The crabcakes are pretty decent but could use a less fried feel. Overall it’s a nice alternative to the louder sushi place that we also love in town.

Overall, nice. A few thoughts....

1. It's not a business casual spot. Athletic shorts and sweaters were in attendance. So, the elegance factor was a bit low.

2. Food was good, nice!

3. Sitting across from the open kitchen (in booths) isn't something I do again. I somewhat feels like a diner, but pretty, considering this configuration.

Again, overall decent place.

Great sushi. We had absolutely no complaints at all. We had about 5 signature rolls and 2 regular. They were all delicious.
The apps were great also. My wife was obsessed with the shumai & I loved the scallops.
Drink menu was a plus too.

For the second time in a week I visit the restaurant. This time the review is based on my friends experience, since I eat the same Stuffed mushrooms of before and they were amazing. One of my friends order a full plate of teriyaki chicken and it was ok, but not super tasty and she end up not eating all of it. My other friend order some veggie sushi and she actually like them. So overall food was good this time just some minors improvements needed on the chicken taste. On the other hand, the server was great and very attentive! but we had a group on the table next to us that were loud and the conversation was not nice to hear. Actually I felt like if I were to be with kids I would have left because of that. I know this is not on the restaurants control that’s why my review is consistent as before the place is great, price and service is amazing. Just ensure you pick a day during the week if you are going with family to avoid anything that is unnecessary.

Restaurant was very well clean and organized due to Covid-19. Our server Nick was amazing, answer questions we had since it was our first time visiting the place. Food was great, we had the stuffed mushrooms as appetizer and different types of sushi for entré. Even the person who cleans the table was very attentive as everyone providing service there was. Definitely want to come back. We did a reservation, but the restaurant was not full, I will still recommend doing one, because after about 10 min we got there a lot of people started to show up. Overall great place. ❤️

Blufish never disappoints. The service, the food and the atmosphere is always the best. My little ones love the veggie rolls and the fried rice. Everything is so fresh from the starter dishes, sushi and the entrees. My brother drove in from New Buffalo, MI to spend time with our family plus to have the best sushi in town at Bluefish. Thank you, Bluefish!

I really wanted to love this place because of all the reviews I've read and the fact that its constantly so busy! The boyfriend and I came here for our Valentine's dinner and it was kind of a disaster. It took a while to get seated because the hostess was very flustered over the amount of pickup orders, and made it obvious. Once seated, the service was okay just a little awkward eating and sitting so close to strangers. I mean, if I lifted my arms from my side or off the table there was practically no room from the people sitting next to me and I could bump them with my elbow. A little awkward when trying to have a dinner date convo. Next, the most disappointing part, the food. The sushi was below AYCE sushi spots, fish was mushy and didn't taste fresh. I got the short rib entree which wasn't horrible, it was supposed to come with rice, soup, and salad... I never got the rice. The bf got the shrimp entree, well, it was just shrimp... no seasoning, no sauce, nothing. Shrimp, boiled and not even salted. It was horrible and overpriced. Save yourself the trip and go down the road to Shakou where the food and seating is equally as awesome.

Food was delicious. Service was disappointing . The best service we received was the gentleman filling our waters and clearing our plates. Our server never asked if we would like another drink, how everything was . She took our order and brought our check.

We had the table we requested in our reservation. Our server was Frank. The only problem was that we did not realize the speaker for the restaurant’s sound system was directly above our heads and that the music could not be turned down on such a busy night.
