We dine at Blufish often and we are always very happy with the food quality and presentation. Since we dine there often, they have proven to be very consistent not only when it comes to food, but service as well. No matter who our server is, we are always greeted kindly and treated to great service throughout the meal. The cocktails and wine offerings are also spot on! Highly recommend!

I was very impressed! The sushi was very fresh, and the portions were very large- their nigiri has some really thick pieces of fish, i eat a lot of sushi and this was the best ratio of fish to rice that I have ever experienced. The staff was very friendly- our waiter Nei (I probably got the spelling wrong) was attentive and courteous. Good cocktails too! I’m already looking forward to my next visit!

We went to Blufish to celebrate my boyfriends 21st birthday. We had never been here before, but we had tried various Japanese restaurants prior to coming. I can’t say enough good things about our experience here. Our server/waiter, Ronny, was just the perfect amount of attentive. Out of every restaurant we’ve been to in the McHenry and Cook county area, this was by far the best. The fish is absolutely delicious and so fresh. The ambience is beautiful and the restaurant itself was so clean. We left feeling refreshed and happy. Ronny helped make our night romantic and fun. He gave us a complimentary desert (with a candle!) to celebrate the occasion. We will definitely be back and we’ve recommended it to every family member and friend so far. If you’re not a fan of raw fish (like I was before this) I PROMISE this restaurant will change your mind. Tip: make reservations beforehand as it can get quite busy! We were seated right away with no wait time or issues!

We go here frequently and like it. Unfortunately, this time we had a very bad experience. We waited 15 mins for our waiter to come to the table the first time then another 10 mins before the drinks came, we just watched them sitting ready on the bar for 10 mins. Appetizers also took a long time and the hot appetizers came out cold. Drink refills took a long time too.

Great experience and ambiance was amazing. Staff was pleasant. Reservation was at 530 on a Friday and got right in. It got really busy about an hour in so I recommend making reservations if possible.

My date is not a fan of sushi. Thanks to the waitress, she explained and pointed out the cooked sushi and she made wholesome recommendations. My date ordered the King Kong roll. We enjoyed the food and drinks.
