While I would highly recommend dining at any one of the BR Guest restaurants; I'm starting to feel that their newer locations are just about atmosphere and the bar...not the food or service. Pricing was moderate to high but the quality of the food is good....just not as high in quality as you would expect. Sushi was creative, but you can't compare against the traditional joints in the city. Our waiter kept trying to push the higher ticket items on both the menu and the wine list - which is ok if he knew what he was talking about. Tough to get them to come by while you're dining - they only come by to check once in a while to see if you want to order more drinks. One postive note - designer did a very good job designing the place...very cool. p.s. Don't forget to bring a dollar to the restroom for the attendant!

The food was very good and an interesting combination of flavors. Service was friendly whenever you got any attention Had to ask for coffee refills, condiments, etc. Seemed unaware of what is needed for the meal to be complete. Could have just been our server

The sushi was absolutely amazing! A little small though, order a lot if that is your main meal. The entrees were good, but not necessarily worth the price. Great atmosphere and service! Perfect for before and after the theater. Try the Blue Fin Cocktail!

The food here is delicious, but the lackadaisical service spoiled the experience for us. The servers are very friendly and pleasant, but don't know the first thing about the kind of service a great restaurant demands. I'd go back, but with a an extra helping of patience!

What an experience. I had made reservations for my wife and I to eat at the Blue Fin last night. From the minute we walked in, it seemed like a place which catered to its customers. The waitress was very courteous and was great to work with. The atmosphere was very trendy and chic. The crowd was young but mature. Now on to the dinner. I had the clam chowder and my wife had the crab cakes for starters. The clam chowder was great, but the crab cakes were off the hook. It was like a party in my mouth. For the main course, I had the striped bass and my wife had the salmon special which they were running that evening. We both loved the fish as it was prepared quite well with just the perfect amount of portions. For dessert we both had the creme brule, which was fantastic. They gave an assortment of blueberry, raspberry, and plain custard. Overall, we had a wonderful time at the Blue Fin and recommend it to everyone. Bon Apetite!!

Like others, we had reservations for a pre-theater dinner. We are from out-of-state; my husband found Blue Fin on the internet, but I was honestly a little apprehensive (on the internet? are you nuts?) It was the best dining experience we've ever had in the City. Every single thing -- the waitestaff, food, ambience -- made us feel special. Jeez -- he's still talking about the fancy bathrooms! We'll be back.
