Great Sushi in a hip atmosphere on Santana Row. Great ambiance & greater prices for cutting edge sushi. Delicious, fun & pricey. Par for the course at Santana Row.

The food is exceptional, but the BAR has very unique drinks and the service at the Bar, (ask for Carlos!) is bar none to excellence! Sake is a must when visiting Blowfish. The music keeps you in step with the beat at the Row.

We love blowfish in SF. While this restaurant may share name and concept it's not the same. Good food but if you want great go to SF location.

The ambience and good food make this a great place to hang out with friends. Try the hot sake, it is good! Ask the waiters about the Blowfish history.

The bar is a nice place to drop by for a Sake Bomb. The restaurant is, like others say, noisy with rave and house music pumping all day/night and ti is pricey. The decoration is modern, dark, black with Anime art and the menu is interesting. The problem: the food has gotten iffy over the years. It used to be... More

Any time you walk into a Sushi place and it smells fishy, that's a bad sign. In general this place is way over priced, produces mediocre sushi, can be sketchy from a service standpoint and generally has little to offer other than proximity to the Hotel Valencia.

From the menu, the food sounded good. In reality, we paid a lot for a little sashimi, and between the blaring music and the loudmouth patrons, we didn't enjoy ourselves and went elsewhere so we could talk without shouting.
