We were asked by the customer at the table behind us to leave because it was his brothers birthday and they were waiting for our table. He did offer to buy us a round of drinks if we moved to the bar. We declined the offer of drinks.

Arrived for an 8:15 reservation and was seated immediately (restaurant was surprisingly empty). Unfortunately, didn’t see a waiter for 20 minutes. Had to catch the eye of the manager to make that happen. Food was wonderful as always, but towards the end of the night their cleanup crew was picking up carpet around our table while we were contemplating dessert. (It was only 9:15.) Dust and dirt flew everywhere. Totally turned us off. The staff could have been cleaning other areas where people weren’t seated. Another opportunity for communication from management to staff. There’s more competition in town now so hopefully they’ll get it right again soon.

The sushi here is amazing (definitely try your rolls with the black rice - SO good!) and the ambiance feels as though you’re in a hip downtown location instead of a few doors down from a suburban Chuck E Cheese 😄 Highly, highly recommend!

I love coming here. I usually come here with friends to catch up after a super long and stressful week at work. Its loud, but that's due to the amount of people that enjoy being there! The food is extremely tasty, doesn't appear to have ever been frozen and is presented in a eye pleasing way. I highly recommend this place and will continue coming here! I live about an hour away and it is very much so worth the drive.

Always a great meal, started out with tempura, shumai, and crab stuffed mushrooms, then had the salmon dinner, golden ebi, sweet potato maki, and the scary crab. The food was excellent. The house salads with that dressing is not to miss. And the exptic bamba for dessert was fantastic. Love blufish and will continue to come back.

I went for my birthday and it was really wonderful. The restaurant decor is fresh and modern. Our server was very accommodating to my husband's dietary restrictions and we were still able to order what we wanted. We also got cocktails that were delicious and they surprised us with dessert. We ordered the dragon roll, rainbow roll, spicy tuna, sexy lady and a sashimi sampler - all were fresh & tasty!

The food was very good but the drinks not so much... very inconsistent and a couple were tasteless. Truly ordered the same drink 3 times at the table and all 3 versions were completely different... taste and appearance. Service was terrible. Server told us that something was a dumpling and it arrived as a skewer. Water service was non-existent. It is a shame that the high quality food was overshadowed by such bad service and marginal cocktails. Will give it 1 more try... this was out first experience. Had high hopes.

Food was amazing, but our server was not hospitable. I sat with empty plates and martini glass the whole time. I was never asked if I wanted another drink or how the meal was. Zero personality or friendliness. If they are so rushed, they should have more servers. Or get friendly ones.
