The Blue Fish - Bayou is a great place to go before a ballet, opera, symphony or Alley Theatre show. The service is excellent and the fish always fresh.
Wait staff 'phoned it in'. Took our order and then never returned until bringing the check.
We had dinner before our show at the Wortham for the second Saturday in a row. Ronnie was our server both visits and she was fantastic! She even remembered our drink and dessert orders from the week before. We will definitely request her next time.
It took 20+ minutes to get our drinks. Waiter admitted bartender did not know how to make an old fashioned. Food came before the drinks. Waiter never came back to check on us. We had to ask for more drinks.
Great pre-concert meal. It's not inexpensive but the food was good and the service was great. It's become my pre-concert go to...
Met Cildhood Friend while he was in town. Love the food and drinks. Recommend the crab egg rolls and lobster pops. DELICIOUS!!!!
Overall, Blue Fish was a decent place. We were celebrating my friend's birthday with a group of people (total of 7) and they handled the split checks really well and the waiter asked ahead of time how we wanted to portion out the checks so when it came time to paying, it went super smoothly! The food was fresh and delicious, and the menu sports options other than sushi for those who weren't a fan. However, I didn't find any of their rolls mind blowing (although the waiter's suggestion for the Rainforest roll definitely panned out & it was the best out of the bunch!). Service was a little less attentive then I've experienced and food came out intermittently, with a few people having to remind our waiter about missing rolls. And one of the appetizers came out at the very end of our meal which should have been disclosed if it was going to take that long! Food was fast which would be a plus for attending the theater, but it was a slightly weird to be almost the only guests in the restaurant after 7:45. However, it meant we weren't disturbing any couples at nearby tables.
Also, the AC was blasting directly on our table and the restaurant was kept at a very chilly 65, so most of our party was wishing we had brought jackets!
Great sushi! Sat out on the patio and had a delicious meal.
The Blue Fish is our go to place pre-theater. We spend a lot of time in Houston and never tire of visiting The Blue Fish before or after our shows. Staff is always friendly and accommodating, takes our show time into consideration and even let us know the optimal time to leave so we can make our show in time.
Selected because it was close to Jones Hall. Excellent choice if you are going to the Symphony
