We had an early dinner before an 8:00 show and booked a little early at 5:30. The facility has a lot of tables but they seem to have the cooks and wait staff to serve everyone In timely fashion. The menu offers a nice variety of sushi and seafood but also includes a tantalizing burger for dedicated carnivores. I had... More

NYC is a lively place and the Blue Fin does not disappoint on that front. Still, who needs loud music when the real music of any restaurant is composed of the clinking of cutlery on plates, the buzzing of the conversations of patrons and the general humming of the place? The food was very good, and the service was fast... More

We had a fabulous dinner at The Blue Fin restaurant. Located right at Time square, very modern design, super friendly staff and the seafood tower and the sushi was just perfect. Somewhat pricy, but it was certainly expected at this location.

Blue Fin has a very eclectic menu filled with locally sourced food. It is beautifully served and always fresh and delicious. They have a great sushi menu and a large raw bar menu as well. Great cocktails and the bar has a full window onto Times Square so there is always great people watching!!

Convenient location right on Times Square near most theaters. The entrance is misleading but inside the place is huge. The food was tastefully presented and delicious. The service was attentive and efficient. Reservations are a good idea.

The fish is fresh, the ambiance is wonderful and our service was impeccable. Walk off loud , busy Times square and go into an oasis of good fresh sushi and seafood and the homemade ice cream and chocolate molten raspberry cake are amazing.

Very pleasant seafood experience in a relaxed setting. Service was very courteous and fast. The food was well made and was not extremely pricey. The location is very central.

I have dined at Blue Fin several times for dinner and breakfast. I recently returned to a remodeled, smaller restaurant. I was seated on the second floor. It appears that a portion of the restaurant and bar area are all one. I felt like I was seated in the bar. It was OK, but not as intimate as the restaurant.... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
