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.

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.

I haven't dined here for a few years, but stopped by with the family during a visit to Santana Row. Service was pretty slow and the sushi just wasn't as amazing as I remembered it. So, in my view it's not anything to get excited about any more, which is a shame, as it used to be awesome.
