Soup was good my husband loved the sweet and sour soup I had the miso and it was good. Our waitress Megan was delightful. The sushi was fair at best. Guess Blue Fin spoiled us,

We went there at the behest of a friend, who wanted saki. The interior is very nice and chic, with red accent lighting and such. However, the restaurant is poorly managed. The bartender who took our order was great, but the food took 20 minutes to deliver for food that should have taken 6-8 minutes to prepare. It wasn't busy, so that wasn't the issue. I had to go find a manager, and I had to remind him to shake my hand when he introduced himself. He admitted that the food took 20 minutes to deliver and took some money off the bill, but didn't really seem to "get" that there was a problem with the service. The soup (dumpling and chicken) was delicious and hit the spot. The tempura was bland and lukewarm by the time it got to us. Overall, a disappointment, although the soup was perfect.

I brought a client to lunch.
The service was just above average.
The food was ok.
They didn't have lobster rolls at lunch (it's on the menu), which is what my client wanted so that's never a good thing.
We had a couple of rolls that were good.
Value wise, it's what you'd expect to pay in Newport.
Overall...just ok all around.

We had a gift card so we decided to try it out. The food was average and the sushi rolls are expensive and just ok. The pineapple fried rice was really good. The decor is nice and cool. The service was average as well. There were only 6 tables of people total so it wasn't very busy for a Saturday night. We won't be back unless its for happy hour

Service was terrible. No-one came to our table after serving the meal. I had to ask three times to get some more water.
