Having eaten sushi all over the world, i was very excited for this highly- rated restaurant. I could not get anyone to take my order. When the waiter finally came over, he could not recommend a sake and told me I could read the menu. The lunch specials looked like a good value but my child Only eats California rolls. They offered three California hand rolls with soup for $13 But would not substitute cut rolls. Three cut California rolls without soup were $24. The owner was not interested in hearing why this made no sense. He told me that they did not have a children's menu and I was free to order a la carte if I did not like the set lunch specials. Other than the lunch specials, The prices were the highest I had seen anywhere with most Maki's running close to $25 a piece. Although the food looked quite good We didn't stick around to try it. The owner is rude and does not deserve your money.

I realize this is an expensive area and the restaurants are pretty upscale. But this place didn't earn that distinction. While the food was good, it wasn't worth the price and the waiter was less than attentive. It was in a strip plaza, nothing special about the ambiance. One entree was one shrimp cut in half and grilled.

This is by far and away the best sushi in the Newport bay area! We now make a habit of coming to it every weekend, eve n though we live in London! The waitresses are also very kind, except one.The prices are mostly good, but sometimes a bit expensive§.

We routinely eat at Blue Fin. It is far, far better than any other sushi restaurant anywhere in California and just maybe, in the US. It is much more than sushi, all of the food they serve is just great! You can't go wrong with anything. Their Miso glazed fish is just amazing. They also have a great saki list and there are flights also. Blue Fin is a restauant that should be on top of everyone's list. It is the best!
