Blue Fish-Allen always does a great job of having a table ready when we make a reservation. Whether we want inside or out, they are always ready for us. On this particular night, Watters Creek was packed full of people watching the outdoor concert and attending the arts fair. They still had a table ready for us and we appreciate that.

Wait staff appeared to be overworked. Food did not come out on time or complete. Meat was slightly under cooked. We have been happy with our experience at this location previously so hopefully we can chalk this one up as a bad night for the restaurant.

Very nice outdoor seating area. Food was average for the price. Really wanted to like this place more. Server did everything we asked, but seemed unhappy to be there. Inventive, interesting cocktails. Definitely going to try some other places in Watter's Creek now that we've seen it.

Love Blue Fish, but what did you change the Rock Manhatten rolls? Used to have sauces and now they are VERY dry.

Good experience. The table was really small and the main courses came out right after the appetizer so it was hard to arrange things. Our server apologized for the timing. The food was very good, though, as it consistently is at this location.

First beer they brought for girlfriend was skunked. No big deal. After telling waitress we wanted no appetizers girlfriend ordered from small plate menu and I ordered teriyaki steak. They brought her food as an appetizer and 10 minutes later brought mine..cold. We picked at it for a bit as we finished beers and left. Extremely slow service for a not so packed house. Incredible annoying experience.

We sat on the patio on a beautiful cool evening in Texas. There was access for our son to run around on a grassy area adjacent to the patio. our waitress Kirsten was excellent.

It was for a French exchange student and he loved it which makes the meal all worth it.

Unlike the Bluefish at 121, this location still cares about customer service and delivers excellent sushi every time.

Usually we have great service but something was "off" today. And then at 2, we were basically asked to leave because you were closing. Our waitress missed our appetizer order until later so all our food arrived at the same time, rushing us

We frequent Blue Fish because of the great sushi. As always the food was excellent. We got our normal Rainforest Roll but decide to add the Lobster Roll to our dining. Both were quite delicious. Our server, Sydney, remembered us from our last visit and also recalled some of the specifics (she remembered that I didn't like cucumber in my water). The service was outstanding. Thank you Sydney.

I am an out-of-towner and was at the Allen Center when the urge for some sushi hit. A couple of people I spoke with recommended this restaurant and they were right! The sushi was fresh, the cuts generous and the sake fairly priced. The manager on duty made a nice recommendation of a neutral, non-floral sake which was delicious and complemented the fish. The only disappointment was that they had sold out of uni, one of my favorites. But everything else was so good! We shared nigiri and maki and every one was excellent. I wish I lived in this part of the country. A great sushi restaurant.
