Oysters as appetizers were very good, but main meals and serivce were dissapointing. We were seated timely w/ reservations, but had to wait 10min. ordered appetizers including some sushi & rolls - not impressed. our entrees took 60min. consolation was desserts, decadent well presented- too bad our meal wasnt better!

My girlfriend and I ordered the steak and chicken entrees respectively, and the food was not what I expected. The steak entree cost $33, and all you get is a small piece of steak that looks like an oversized nugget, and 4 onion rings. The chicken entree cost $25, and tastes like regular chicken from anywhere else! Both plates were decent at best. The only bright spot from the menu was the dessert, which was absolutely delicious! Bottom Line: The food is not that great, and does not justify the high prices. The only good things about the restaurant is the decor and dessert. Service is not even great, just decent.

To begin with, I am from NYC and love restaurants. My boyfriend chose this place for our anniversary. It was an amazing surprise. I have been to several of Steve Hanson's restaurants and have had a great night at all of them Steve Hanson's food and environment at all of his restaurants make it seem like you are at an event. He has not forgotten a single detail. The oysters were spectacular, the sushi appetizer special was just a party on the tongue; he big eye tuna was an amazing blending of flavors and the dorade will make you eat more than your stomach can hold. On top of all of this, the bar offers creative, fantastic drinks. Blue Fin is totally worth the expense; and how can you go wrong with a great live jazz band as your background music :)

Blue Fin is elegant with an open & modern feel. The service was superb and so were the desserts! The food was without a doubt delicious, but nothing extraordinary in comparison to other NYC restaurants of the same caliber. A group of us split the s'mores cake and a trio of creme brulee. I would go back for the dessert in a heartbeat!

Very nice atmosphere, but the food was average at best.

Not surprising - a lot of the best reviews are from out of towners. This place is not representative of the food NYC has to offer. It is overpriced and no matter how "fancy" the food looks, it's mediocre at best. The fish was not fresh, the lobster in my soup was fishy and tough. The service was nothing special and the whole experience seemed pretentious.

When in New York I either go to Ruby Foo's or Bluefin. Ruby Foo's is good asian, but Bluefin--hea hea, is my favorite. From the bread opening to the main course. If you order anything other then the Halibut you should be beaten! Don't order beef, this is a seafood resturant. The Halibut is the best seafood meal I have ever had. It will cost you more than your first car did, but it is worth it.
