The service was very slow. For two people, we were there for 2 hours. It shouldn't have taken that long.

The sushi was ok. Was looking for a better experience, this was just ok, not memorable, or special. For a casual sushi outing it will do

We had a great waitress and the overall vibe of the restaurant is very energetic and modern. We stopped in the cure our sushi craving, so we only ordered sushi. The quality of the sushi itself is fine, nothing spectacular. Also ordered a very basic cocktail that most restaurants/bars can make with ease, and it was disappointing. I do have to say that the service was outstanding, from the hostess at the front to our waiter and the food-runners who brought out our food when it was ready. I wish the food was better but we may return sometime in the future to give it another try since we live in the neighborhood.

The food was delicious. Love the Bento Boxes for lunch and great deals at Happy Hour. Also, loved having George as our waiter. He always took such good care of me at Daily Review Cafe. He remains is and always has been an incredible part of the dining experience.

Both the Rockets and Astros games were being shown in the bar area so it was louder than usual, but the atmosphere was great and as always the food and service was top notch.

The sushi was fresh. Service was not good. Waiter kept getting our orders mixed up. Items arrived that we didn't order, forgot to bring the drinks. Felt a little sterile

Rice in sushi was mushy making it difficult to eat. Tuna tower is quite tasty. Dumplings are always good. This restaurant has been good so many times before that we will return.

I came here with a party of eight to celebrate my birthday. We had a wonderful time. Our server Michelle was excellent and attentive. If food was so good we ate until we were full and couldn’t eat anymore. My friends and I would definitely come back!!!

Their ahi tuna tower is one of the things I miss about not living in Houston. So happy to see this lovation, as their downtown location can be tough to access (you have to park underground and hope you come up street level at thw right spot). Love this place for delicious sushi!!

This is a great place to eat sushi/sashimi. The service was excellent, the food variety and quality was great and overall we enjoyed the place very much. Not too noisy despite being pretty busy. Reservations are recommended.
Will return.

Blue Fish is always good, but even great with kids! We brought our three boys under 6 and they made us feel SO welcome! I cannot recommend them highly enough for families, which isn't always the case when mom and dad have a sushi craving!
