We have dined at Bluefin several times and have always enjoyed the food and ambience. This trip was only for happy hour drinks and bar food. Cocktails were well prepared and the wine pours were generous. The temptation of the lobster rolls offered on the menu was too great to pass up and we decided to splurge on one of... More

Good seafood, well prepared and well presented. Service is attentive and not obtrusive. Atmosphere is quiet and refined — for Tucson standards.

If the food was not enough the vine list was just fine and REASONABLE! What I have been seeing is 3 to 4 time mark ups on wine but not here. Here someone... More

Stopped in for a quick lunch and were seated at a nice table on the outdoor patio. My wife had the salmon melt sandwich, salmon with swiss cheese, caramelized onion and basil pesto, which she greatly enjoyed. As I looked at the menu, I was drawn to the "grilled cheese" sandwich, a combo of cheddar, brie and goat cheese with... More

Although the atmosphere is charming and the wait staff accommodating---- the food lacks imagination.

You are in the middle of the high desert and you expect average seafood at best. This restaurant provides a wonderful variety of fish and seafood, prepared in with southwest flavors. The Sea Bass we has was exceptional. The Salmon melted in your mouth. We were in Tucson for 5 days and managed to eat there twice because of the... More

The seafood here is absolutely fresh (yes, even in the desert!) and perfectly prepared. However, there's something for everyone, even non-seafood lovers. Salads are also fresh, diverse, and bountiful. I can't think of a negative adjective for this fine restaurant.
