A really nice restaurant with a lot of flavors and food options. Our waitress really knew the menu well and made some great recommendations. What is really nice is the lack of crowd noise there. Some of the steak houses in town are just really loud. This was almost like sitting at your dinner table and being able to have a conversation. So great food, great wine, great atmosphere.

About the restaurant
Blue Sushi Sake Grill unites creative ingredients with energetic vibes, premium cold sake with happy moments to give you a fresh and fun new way to experience sushi. Our sushi and grill menus allow you to explore your sushi favorites in new and unexpected ways. We like to say that sushi is for sharing, and our menu encourages it. Order a spread of all your maki, nigiri and sashimi favs from the sushi bar, and throw in a few orders of starters from the grill. We'll stagger your plates so you can savor it all bite-by-bite, and maximize the sushi experience you've been craving all week. If you're not sure where to start, tour the menu during Happy Hour, where all our guest favorites — from our sushi, grill and drink menus — are available at an amazing value. We offer Happy Hour every day of the week at Blue Sushi Sake Grill!

The short ribs had the bone-in and lots of fat. I’ll go back to a fish entree next time.
