Service was extremely friendly. However, We were interrupted quite a few times with info such as: "the price of the crab, the price of the lobster, here is the actual lobster"...We ordered, we're fine. . It's a lovely thought but we would have asked for that information upon ordering should it be of interest. The place is extremely loud! You... More

Sometimes food at restaurants in high-profile tourist areas can disappoint, but The Blue Fin has been consistently good over quite a few years. It's nice to be able to get a great seafood meal, sushi, and good drinks right in the heart of Times Square. I personally opt for the cooked seafood specials, which change regularly. Our starter of roasted... More

Love the menu and the small plates. Love that you can taste several things without feeling stuffed. Highlight for me was the kale and broccoli salad. Until now The Smith held the trophy for best kale salad. Well now the trophy must be shared. The sushi and rolls are solidly delicious. Decor cool and vibe is electric but warm at... More

we were wrapping up our trip and just wanted something light to eat and drink when we ended up here with a great view of Times Square. Great eel and great drinks. Nice place to hang out and relax.

Our meal was quite mixed. - we had wonderful oysters, but really cold uneatable entrees - I had the Halibut and it came out cold, the pasta gnocchi wear hard and very undercooked. My friend had the Tuna and again the pasta was horrible. Drinks were very small, I had the Blue Fin, and did not finish it, asked for... More

Waiter didn't know the menu. They had a fairly large sushi menu and several of us were interested in going that route. We inquired if they offered a boat or platter - like every Sushi bar does.. the waiter had no idea of the concept - so there was no way we were going to chance the quality of sushi... More

I have dined at Blue Fin a few times. It is close to Times Square but the food is much better than most of the restaurants in the area. Everything fromt the sushi to the entrees is well prepared and the flavors are excellent. We had a fantastic server, Brian, who humored my fist-bumping 3 year old.I highly recommend the... More
