Wait staff was a bit slow, she didn't deliver the right drink order and was not at all interested in making it right. Sushi, salad and Rock Shrimp appetizer was delicious!! Overall, I would recommend this restaurant.

This was the most "fishy" sushi I've ever eaten.. I eat sushi at least twice a week and I can tell you it was the worst sushi I've ever had. From appetizer to entree.

Food is great, fish is always fresh tasting, sushi rolls are creative. Ambience inside is a bit strange with restaurant layout and decor. Outdoor seating is best if weather is nice. Service always good

Great food, server was excellent at describing the different rolls. Sat on the back patio and it was fantastic although they don’t honor the happy hour pricing out there. A little expensive, but worth it for us. The rolls were incredible.

Food was delicious and some plates were overpriced while others were reasonable.

Drink menu left a lot to be desired.

Very loud for a dimly lit sushi restaurant.

We had a wonderful experience celebrating my birthday at Blue Fish. My five year old daughter enjoyed her kids bento box, along with the balloon and crayons she got to keep her occupied. My 11 month old loved taking bites of my food and watching the crowd and the servers. My husband and I really enjoyed the fresh and tasty rolls, to the point where we both forwent the use of soy sauce in order to enjoy the natural delicious combinations. I was very pleased and happy with our experience, from our friendly server to the receptionists to the ambiance. We all left happy and sated, despite the cold outside!

Server was very helpful and friendly - we enjoyed the “121 roll” and the “lava roll” as well as an appetizer (“ahi tower” I think). Great food and experience overall. Also accidentally left an item there and later came back to pick it up successfully - the server had tried to catch us but we were too quick.

We eat at The Blue Fish strictly for their quality of sushi and variety of sushi. The portions are good sized and the presentation of our meal is always very good and many times exceptional! Service is most always exceptional even yesterday, Mother's Day, with all seating areas full, their service was very good. Highly recommend The Blue Fish either downtown Houston or The Woodlands, as we have been to both.

The food is great but we had to wait an hour past our reservation to be seated, which is unacceptable. The hostess did not seem to be able to manage her job. Very disappointing.

Sushi was fresh and good even though the Initial dish was incorrect. They promptly took it back and apologized. Downside is that meals did not arrive at the same time which meant that one of us was almost done eating when the other meal arrived

We went for our Anniversary. Our waiter didn't show up to our table for well over 10 minutes. Someone else brought our wine to the table. Then a different person brought the appetizer (dumplings and salad). My husband and I ordered different rolls (shark bite and tiger eye). The food was average at best. The waiter showed back up to leave the bill right after the meal was delivered. We won't be back. Uni Sushi is a much better option - better tasting with a better atmosphere and better staff.

Very pleased with seating. Nice that they called, and asked if I would like a table inside or on patio. I chose the patio. My food was very good. The Small plate Sea Bass was lovely, and the Rainbow Roll and Eel were very nice. My teens both ordered the Chicken Teriyaki and thought it needed more sauce.
Our server was fine, but we found that it was odd that several other server's were coming to our table with plates asking if we had ordered whatever it was they had. Do the tables outside not have numbers associated with the ticket when order placed to give clarity where it goes?
It's no big deal, but our server told me (as it was my birthday) that he would bring something special. Then a totally different server brought Tempura Ice Cream to the table asking, "Tempura Ice Cream?" It was a nice treat, but the presentation was lacking. Personally, I felt it should have been carried out by our own server with a Happy Birthday.

The patio was absolutely beautiful. The food was delicious (although highly recommended, the calamari was very tough and not my favorite). Rolls were great. The staff were all amazing with my toddler. We will be back!

Good food, excellent service. 7pm on a Friday night and the place was nearly empty. Not sure what to make of that. Nice location on the water but only a couple of tables have a view unless you want to sit outside on the deck. Unfortunately, we were seated at a dark table in the corner even though the place was empty.

Service was excellent and our server just asked if we were celebrating an occasion, our anniversary, and he ended up getting us a free desert. Floors were sticky, which caught me off guard and for why I gave it a 3 star. Food was great and I would still recommend.
