great fish, very pricey and small selection.

I am from LA and I LOVE LOVE LOVE sushi. As a result, I know sushi. This place did have good fish (the the best I have ever had) and the ambiance was decent. The place was filled with tourists. The menu was really limited. they don't have many specialty rolls, or specialty sashimi. The food was also very expensive. I would not go back.

A Day to Remember

It was our wedding anniversary. My husband loves eating seafood. I want to make it a memorable day for the both of us. So we went to this restaurant without having second thoughts.
I ordered the best food for the both of us. One of it was the Lobster/Shrimp bisque. It was very tasty. My husband enjoyed eating all the food that we ordered.
So I guess my husband had a really great time during that day and I know we will never forget this day ever.. The place was so perfect for our celebration. We will never forget those moments. And of course the staff and the restaurant itself.

There's better elsewhere

Arrived around 10:30 on a Wednesday night after late flight . We were exhausted and couldn't be bothered to put on coats, gloves, etc to brave the weather. This was inside the hotel. The place was pretty much empty, not surprising as it was mid-week and January.

Yet, per the host, the only table available was the one immediately adjacent to another couple. By immediately adjacent, I mean so close I could smell the guy's aftershave. It was a first date; we know because we heard every word. They were adorable.

We were surrounded by empty tables. There was no reason for us to be jammed together. The place was empty. But, when we requested one of those many empty tables, the host claimed they were all reserved by after-theater diners. I had to refrain from asking which version of reality he was logged into. Again, it was a Wednesday night in January and, oh, right, we're in the midst of a recession.

It took over 20 minutes for a waitress to take our order, another 30 before our entrees arrived. The rolls were rock hard and could have served as lacrosse balls. They'd clearly been over-microwaved but were lukewarm. The butter was frozen.

Entrees, when they finally arrived, were decent but nothing special. Service was distracted and haphazard.

As for the after-theater rush - that consisted of three guys who came in at 11 for drinks.

It's New York, there are hundreds of great restaurants, many within 1 block. Don't bother with this one.

YUMMMMMMMM!!!!

My friends and I went to Blue Fin after seeing a show. We ended up showing up a half hour earlier than our reservation. We were seated immediately. We started off with a selection of sushi rolls. Those were gone in no time. I had the Lobster/Shrimp bisque. I really wanted to order another one as it was so good. Instead of having lumps of lobster and shrimp on top, there was a little salad...almost like a seafood salad. The mixture of the celery and green onions added a little extra flavor to the bisque. Only thing that I would have asked for would have been a little topping of creme fraiche. I had the Sauteed hailbut with lemon herb gnocchi, mushrooms and lump crab. I'm not a fan of gnocchi so I only ate a couple of them. The halibut was so light and flaky. Everything was cooked perfectly. For dessert I had the Upside Down Chocolate Souffle cake. OH MY GOD!!!! It was chocolate goodness. There was a nice size scoop of ice cream along side the cake. We were so full that I wanted to get a room at the W and just sleep off the food coma that I was in. The only reason I won't give 5 stars is because of the placement of the downstairs bathroom. It's right near the kitchen and server area. It's a unisex bathroom which isn't a big deal but there's only one. There's no good place to stand if there's a line. I would have gone upstairs but my foot was in an air cast and stairs are not the best for me. Other than that, I'd go back to Blue Fin again. The food was excellent.

Beware of unpublished specials

chose this restaurant because of its location and online menu, but when ordering, was told that there was a foie gras special as an appetizer. unless you are familiar with this barbaric practice of expanding and extracting goose liver through torture and suffering, no reason to think this is an issue. if you aren't familiar with it, please educate yourself and insist that restaurants ban this item from their selections. i would never have selected blue fin had they listed this option on their online menu (which may be why they keep it a secret). blue fin - if you're listening - please do the right thing so that i can come back in good conscience and enjoy other items on your menu. otherwise, portions were small but tasty, prices are steep, and service was excellent. if you're a local, sit upstairs away from the hordes of tourists in TS.

The best place for SUSHI

I ate at a lot of sushi places and this place has the best yellow tail. It melts in your mouth you dont even need teeth to chew it. All of their sushi is good you cant go wrong. I ate here many times and i've never been dissapointed. If there was a 6th star this place would get it for sure.

Fresh Seafood, Touristy Spot

I went here last night with my friend for Summer Restaurant Week. Ironically I did not order from the Restaurant Week menu as there was nothing interesting to choose from. So I ordered the tuna crusted with sesame seeds, cooked medium rare. The tuna itself was delicious, prepared just the way I like it, however I was dispointed with so little sides (came with white rice and vegetables). Interesting enough this place does have one of the freshest seafood I've ever had. (I also ordered the spicy tuna roll, very yummy). The ambiance was great too although it's a tourist's spot since it's in Times Square, so the noise was loud. I recommend going there later than 8pm to avoid the broadway show crowd.

Great Live Music at the Cozy Bar Upstairs

We ducked in to Blue Fin when it started sleeting after being dragged to Grease! The all glass bar on the street level was packed but the host told us there was seating on the second level. After making our way up a gorgeous wide stairway we found our new favorite Times Square bar! There was a jazz duo in the corner and a great wine selection to help warm us up. Then we found out the full dinner menu was available at the bar and my wife had a bowl of great clam chowder and I had a crab cake that was a little small but perfectly tender and not too greasy. We were so happy to have found the place that we had another glass of wine and stayed until the band packed up and went home.
I never have high hopes in Times Square but this was one of those memorable nights when you stumble upon something that is just perfect. I wonder how much longer until word gets out and the upstairs bar is as crowded as the downstairs.

Hip Seafood

The girls and I tried this place out for Restaurant Week and I must say that I was impressed. The Staff was warm and attentive (the manager was a cutie) and the seafood was really fresh. The decor was impeccable and this all nestled in the lunacy called Times Square, lol. A definate must do for seafood lovers who can appreciate a trendy atmosphere. I enjoyed everything that I ate and I am not a seafood lover and very picky at that. They have an extensive wine selection so if you'd rather not dine there's always the bar. I'd go back, next time preferrably on a date.
