At our table we had sushi, seared tuna and filet mignon. My husband said the sushi roll (the ocean) was the best roll he has ever had! Tuna and steak were great. The last two come with a potato cake and this is really great too!

Waited 15 minutes even though we had a reservation. Once seated, server was slow. Saturday was very busy. We were brought the check but server never came back to pick it up. This caused a delay in leaving.
They need to staff up for weekends.

We waited 20+ mins for our table that was reserved for 8:30pm. You need to learn to throw people out so others can be seated.

Blufish has the best sushi in the NW suburbs. Also, the hosts and waitstaff are attentive and professional. This place is perfect for all occasions; it's chic but family friendly. I would recommend it to everyone.

This was our second time at the restaurant and this time was very disappointing by comparison. My tuna was obviously not fresh as it was very limp and not like the tuna on the plates of the others in my party. The taste was off as well, so I didn't finish my meal.

this is or should i say was my wifes favorite place, however we have noticed as they grow the quality is dropping a little. my wife has noticed portion sizes of the sushi are getting smaller. on another note i might add this place has a couple of servers that are very good, but sadly it has a couple of servers that are very bad. if you are unfortunate enough to get a bad one then best case senario you will leave unimpressed. worst case senario you will consider not returning and this happened to me. my last waiter was unattentative and fairly rude.

We would highly recommend Blufish for sushi or any other entree. the sushi was outstanding in both taste and presentation. My wife had the scallops that were very tasty and presented beautifully. the server was very pleasant and knowledgeable of the menu items. She made excellent recommendations. the cost for all four people in our party was very reasonable. Overall, a delightful evening.
