I absolutely love Blowfish! The restaurant itself has a very cool, relaxed atmosphere, perfect for friends or impressing colleagues. The food was flawless; beautiful, delicate sushi, hand rolls, salads, oysters, fried chicken, sorbet, cheesecake, we tried it all! The sea urchin (from the specials board) was a highlight. Great selection of teas and sake. Staff are attentive (but not too... More

A more Americanized experience than you would get on the Ginza, Blowfish Sushi gives diners a California-influenced take on the traditional Japanese delicacy. With a vibe that is closer to a nightclub than a restaurant, Blowfish Sushi may not be for everyone: dark-ish interior, loud music, Japanese manga porn playing on screens... More

I used to eat here more. One day I sat at the bar and was about to order when I saw several flies enjoying themselves on slabs of fish in the fish cooler. The sushi chefs were oblivious or didn't care... Neither of which appealed to me. None of the people sitting at the tables have any idea whether the... More

This is just a wonderful neighborhood gem of a restaurant, and happily within walking distance of my sister's house when I visit. Everything I have tried there is good, and the staff is friendly (did I mention that the woman bartender was hot? lol).

Went for an evening meal and spent $180 with only 2 people eating. Gourmet food, with great presentation, however with such little portions- it is an expensive night out. Good food - not amazing.

This is an excellent sushi restaurant pretty much all around. The ambience, decor, service and food quality are all superb. I'm assuming the low ratings are due to the price, but you get what you pay for. My party and I had appetizers, special rolls and entrees, and nothing failed to impress. The staff was knowledgable and attentive to our... More

I'm not the biggest sushi fan and the menu was very interesting but half the food items I didn't what it was.. But everything we ordered were good and different and are the best prices. This is definitely a sushi restaurant you have to put on your list of places to go!!! I enjoyed everything I ordered!!!

I work just down the way and come here often with co-workers for lunch. The bento box is always our goto option. The sushi is always good and usually we can get in quick. Service sometimes takes awhile but it's worth it for the sushi!

Staying in Mission District

Neighborhood Profile
Mission District
From burritos to bicyclists, the Mission is the foundation for all things hip in the city. Cultural attractions, an independent arts community, sumptuous street murals and a high density of bars and cafes make this neighborhood a magnet for young people. While terrific inexpensive food is abundant, its top-of-the-line restaurants now compete with the city’s best for fashionable diners. Indulge as the locals do by heading to Mission Dolores Park, buy some ice cream, and savor one of the most diverse neighborhoods in the country.
