i went here for dinner and had the short ribs pasta, it was great, i had cocktails too and were yummy, the bartender could have been a little nicer but service was good enough. good romatic spot or just for drinks.

“Like having a cocktail right in the middle of Times Square!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

I have always stopped here for cocktails when in NY , and it is a great small chic bar right in Times Square. People watching at its best! Great gin and tonic, staff not super friendly but who cares really its just a cocktail not dinner. I have heard the sushi awesome, but never tried it!

“Food was mediocre, waiter was not very attentive as if he knew the gratuity is a given. It is an appreciation of a job”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Ordered steak medium well done and it was literally black and bitter on the outside. Sent it back waited for 20 mins before inquring about the food. It came back 25 mins later and the rest of our party of 4 was finished eating our entrees. Very disappointing .

“Great food--great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

My wife and I stopped to dine at the Blue Fin before seeing a Broadway Show. We were not disappointed. The service was great, and the food was outstanding. Our server had wonderful recommendations and was very attentive. It has New York prices, but is well worth the money.
