We always love this place for top of the line sushi. The dishes are elegant and very fresh. Delicious. The noise level sometimes get a little much.

The sashimi was fresh, firm and delicious. The bento box was a treat --from the chawan mushi to the tempura, steak, sashimi, sushi and other items. The service was attentive. The meal was a lovely experience.

We are sushi snobs and this place is one of the best. Sushi is very fresh, cutting edge food pairings, very unique dishes....yummy yummy yummy. My only disappointment is the atmosphere which is lacking. High quality seafood and very expensive but worth every bite.

Had an amazing experience. The sushi is so fresh and there are interesting choices from the standard fare. Main menu is very interesting too. Had tempura oysters with fresh mushroom sauce. Service was excellent and staff very helpful answering question. Best sushi I've eaten

The food was excellent, but the entire time we were there (a not-so-busy Saturday for lunch), we felt like the waiter was trying to rush us out. When a warm mushroom salad with one razor clam, two orders of sashimi (6 pieces each), & two beers cost $110, let me at least enjoy it!

Over 4 years ago My son went to this restaurant, and he never liked sushi. After going to bluefin he instantly became obsessed with sushi. Blue fin is the best sushi in this part of california and I would recommend going there

This restaurant is exceptional in all regards. The specially priced lunches offer a good value compared to dinner. I usually order the Sushi lunch that comes with a salad and soup and op for the spicy tuna roll. The friendly and efficient service completes the experience.

When you simply have to have the best sushi, look no further. The ambiance is upscale sushi restaurant. It can be noisy, and a bit cramped. The bar is ok, it serves the purpose, but all that is nothing compared to the food! This is also not a budget friendly place, but good sushi isn't a budget friendly food. The... More
