“Very Good Sushi - Eclectic Atmosphere”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

I ate at Blowfish Sushi in San Jose recently for lunch on a rainy weekday after having it recommended to me. Service was good and there were lots of seats available. I sat at the bar and had a great view of the chefs preparing my meal. The sushi was fresh and very good, and my server was attentive and friendly. Prices are appropriate for a restaurant such as this located in a trendy city area, which means a little on the expensive side.

“Great sushi...too loud”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

The sushi was nice and fresh.
The atmosphere was young and hip...but a little too loud for us. It was hard to carry on a conversation. If you want someplace to drink, this is a nice option. However, if you want a quiet place for dinner, this may not be it.

“Great Sushi presentation”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

Went to Blowfish for dinner. Had some great fusion sushi rolls. All of the seafood was fresh. Our server was friendly. She detailed all of the rolls once they came to the table. Will definitely go back again

“Great food; very noisy and very pricey”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

No doubt that the sushi is great; fresh and ingenious with nice variety; I found the staff efficient and pleasant but the noise was hard to deal with; prices are very high and dinner for two with a couple of drinks can easily top $200; not sure if I would go back

“Upscale sushi with authentic flavor”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

Usually the upscale sushi joints don't seem to have as good of sushi as the hole in the wall places. Blowfish actually surprised me. They had a great selection of sushi and appetizers, and they were pretty authentic. The atmosphere is nice. The staff was decent, but not overly impressive. Overall I'd recommend, but plan to spend considerably more than at other sushi joints.
