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.

I had dinner with my friend at blue fin last night, and I was really disappointed. Maybe my expectation were too high. I don't know, but the only thing I can say was good was the soup, but what can go wrong with soup? The service was fine, kind of friendly. I would not recommend it... with all the choices out there... nope. oh, and way to pricey for what is worth.

Had dinner with friends here last weekend. Service was good and we loved the ambience. But the food was average at best. Started with oysters that were very fishy and did not taste right. Also had sushi rolls and sashimi that were not impressive either. Pretty disappointing..

I'm in NY 3-4 times an year and ALWAYS eat here. I have to admit it is a little pricey but it is worth every penny. Try the Halibut. It will extend your life expectancy...

We had dinner at the Blue Fin on a Friday night. I had heard great things about the food so perhaps I was expecting too much. The crab cakes were to my taste a little bland, but overall had lots of tasty crab meat. The oysters Rockefeller were very good with a fresh spinach taste. Two in my party had fish and both the halibut and chilean sea bass were rated by them as excellent. I had a steak and it was rather disappointing, but perhaps I should have expected that in a restaurant that specializes in fish. For dessert, we shared the trio of creme brulee and the s'more chocolate confection. The creme brulees were good but the s'more was fabulous.

I took my husband here for his birthday a few weeks ago. We ordered a few appetizers and for our main course, he got the filet mignon and I got the glazed chilean sea bass. Both dishes were pretty good. The atmosphere was pleasant and the service was great. I would recommend this place if Blue Water Grill had no reservations left.
