The restaurant has good food, but today they screwed up a 143.00 to go order of sushi and the manager, Kalani Broussard, offered to give 6 people a 10.00 gift certificate for a 143.00 wasted order. WOW Thanks Kalani! He sucks as a manager! Warning: don't trust them with important to go orders for clients and don't trust this lame... More

The tempura I ordered was outstanding. The texture, the sauce – perfect. Many Asian restaurants don't seem to understand iced tea and how to serve it, but the tea was not only delicious, but quickly refilled the whole time I was there. I hadn't learned enough about sushi to have any idea what to order, but the staff had outstanding... More

I met a friend for an early dinner in which we ordred a sushi roll and beverages. The sushi was good and the people watching even better! Along with bumping into a friend I had not seen in awhile.....This place seems to be a local joint in which you can run into friends from the neighborhood. The food and service... More

I've been here with a client a few times and it's been good each time. I've had the salmon bento box—great value and filling. I also tried the sashimi/sushi combo--very good. I just wish the rolls were smaller in diameter since it's hard to cram a whole piece into your mouth unless you are a large person. Today I tried... More

Nice all around. The rolls are fantastic and tightly rolled with great flavor. We been here twice and hadn't found a roll we didn't like. Service is friendly and fast.

...The opposite of a quiet, intimate sushi bar, the Blue Fish is enormous, loud, stylish and good. Where else can you find a signature roll called El Cubano ($9.50)? It's spicy pork, jalapeno, cilantro, Jalapeno pepper and carrots, with a sweet and spicy sauce. What's most refreshing here is that the menu is all Japanese -- no Thai food to confuse the palate. And to be honest, sushi purists will find plenty to keep them interested. Live specials such as Spanish mackarel, Sea Urchin, Live Hottate(scallop), Black Bass, mirugai (giant clam) and much more.Order the Ahi Tower to see just how well the kitchen can plate. It's tuna tartar and sesame oil over snow crab and avocado salad on a bed of wasabi infused rice. It's almost tragic to watch the server destroy this architectural marvel table-side to make it easier to eat. The "cake" portion of spicy tuna on crispy rice cakes in uzu and garlic sauce. It's delicious...
