Bento Box Lunch

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!

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Blowfish. The restaurant has a cool, relaxed vibe and the service is excellent. Our server (Grant) could not have been more helpful and assisted us in putting together an order combining some of our family favourites with a number of delicious 'specials'. All of the sushi tasted fresh and was well presented. We enjoyed... More

I wasn't impressed for the cost and portions. It's a trendy spot and the house music affirms my speculations. After spending about $200 for two people (before tip) I was hungry about an hour after I left. Sushi was prepared beautifully but wasn't the best place I've been to.

Wow...the apps were incredible. The Tuna Pyramid, the Lost Salad, and the Punch were all incredible. The tempura was fabulous. The sushi rolls (spicy tuna and dragon roll) just mediocre-nothing special. Maybe we ordered wrong-we should have stuck with the first page of the menu rather than the rolls on the other side. Oh well-next time! I'd go back--great atmosphere,... More

We went to eat right when it opened one night and the place did not miss a beat. Service was outstanding and everybody that work there was involved in the service. The menu had raw shrimp which I never have had and I was surprised. I liked the shrimp and everything else we ordered. We will be back for sure.... More

Absolutely the best meal/cocktails of my life whenever I am in San Fran. Sit at the sushi bar-- you won't be disappointed. Amazing staff, incredible food.

My wife and daughter would like to eat only the pyramid of tartare, a combination of guacamole and sashimi served with homemade potato chips. But I enjoyed the crunchy pork appetizer. The sushi was creative and very tasty.

Blowfish Sushi To Die For makes the best sushi I’ve ever tasted. I stress that may be because I’m a Londoner (and sushi during the week for me usually means nabbing some mass-made salmon on rice from the supermarket chiller cabinet). But there’s a fun and inventiveness to the Blowfish maki rolls that I’ve not seen anywhere else. And damn,... More

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.
