    Blue Fin’s sushi menu solves Steve’s pre-theater eating-light resolution and I often have salmon. It is always decked out with seasonal vegetables. I ask for it rare and the kitchen delivers.

    My cousins from Michigan meet every year for ten days of theater. They can only give me an hour for dinner before the curtain. - I like Blue Fin upstairs for a light supper before theater. I never tire of that sweeping stairway with birds flying overhead.

    WE had theater tickets and picked this based on reviews. It is an ok seafood restaurant, but not spectacular or memorable. All the food was good for the four in our party and there were no complaints. Its location is great, more or less in Times Square. the service is good and the prices by NY standard not crazy. Its good doily food, but far from high end dining. Great if a meal before a show is desired or a small meal after.

    Four for lunch on a Sunday. Restaurant was half empty. Large staff but poor service. Food was decent but not great. Lovely room.

    Ideal for those who do not want to go out of hotel or W Hotel guests ..I found the servers quite helpful as well.

    My family dined here for dinner over labor day weekend. We were a few minutes late for our reservation and the staff was great in seating us right away. The ambiance of the restaurant was nice and you almost forget you are just steps away from the bustle of Times Square. We had our kidswith us and for our youngest I appreciated they had a kids menu. We had raw bar shrimp- awesome!! 2 rolls of sushi- Very good with tuna that was in large pieces not minced like other places. We also had Nigri sushi with the "Chefs selection" of fish. My husband had a steak and lobster mashed potatoes. The food was GREAT, the service was GREAT and we enjoyed our meal greatly. It was pricey but by then we were used to paying crazy prices for food and drink in TImes Square (high end craft beer bottle 12oz was $14..!) I would recommend for sure!!.

    Grabbed dinner before a show with 3 kids (all under 10) and had a lovely meal. Delicious lobster bisque, really nice sushi ('dynamite' and six piece sampler were very good). Service was attentive but not overbearing and they had crayons etc and menu for kids (although ours demolished the sushi!!) so great spot for a family meal!

    We stopped in here on a whim and what a fabulous surprise. Our son said it was the best sushi he's ever tasted. Great atmosphere, staff were friendly and attentive. Everything was excellent. I read another review that said it was too expensive but we thought it was very reasonable for where it was located. We would definitely dine here again when we return to NY.

    We were luck enough to dine during NYC Restaurant Week. The Salmon was delicious and the service was great. We always look forward to our visit to Blue Fin and we have never been disappointed.

    We had a lovely dinner here after seeing a Saturday matinee. The food was delicious, and our waiter was delightful.

    I was staying at the W and stopped for breakfast at The Blue Fin. It was a pricey breakfast all in, but very tasty. They serve delicious Sumatran coffee which I was a nice surprise and my server kept it coming. I splurged on the pancakes with lemon ricotta, blueberries and orange zest- fantastic. With a side of black forest ham, it was an amazing meal. I could not finish it all which is a shame because it was so good! I always have a good experience with this restaurant. The renovations have changed it significantly but it is still lovely!

    Decided to stop in for lunch as the restaurant is across the street from TKTS, where we just bought tickets to a Wed. matinee. It was busy. We were seated upstairs. The tables were tight and close to each other so do not expect private conversations. We ordered the lobster and shrimp spring roll. It is cut into 4 pieces so it is easy to share for two. We ordered three sushi rolls to share. They were tasty. Service was fast as we had a little over an hour before the show and we were served promptly. A little pricey but it is Times Square.

    They did a nice job of getting us in and out on time for our okay. Our family of four each enjoyed our meal and the service was excellent.

    We had the spicy tartare appetizer and sushi rolls for dinner on a Thursday night. They were not busy at all. Our server was OK. He was knowledgeable about the menu, but was not very attentive (and I already mentioned they were not busy). It especially took a long time to get our check. Otherwise, it was fine and the food was good.

    This restaurant has changed in the last couple of years. It used to be a grand place with different dining options, now chopped in half. But beyond that, the waitress spent most of her time trying to sell us on joining the program to get points for dining at the group of restaurants this one is part of. Even when we said we weren't interested, and even after she took away the brochures she left us (yes, imagine having to take brochures while eating brunch!), she came back one last time to ask us if we wanted to join. This is not how I want to spend a brunch event with friends. Would never go back.

    We just happened by this restaurant because we were staying nearby and it was a nice experience. At first glance this restaurant is overpriced to say the least, which in all reality it is an omelette cost $19. With that being said it is Time Square so exacerbated prices are par for course. This place does give (1) complimentary mimosa, Bloody Mary, Bellini etc with the purchase of a meal. The French toast, pancakes and waffles are delicious, but the egg white omelette was less than what was expected for the price as well as the Eggs Benedict. The skillet potatoes are good with a mix of bell peppers for a side to any dish. The atmosphere is calming and relaxed with an air of pretension, but overall a nice little spot to enjoy a Time Square brunch.

    We ate dinner late with 3 kids after seeing a show. I am used to NYC service being super fast. This was super slow. Food was fine, prices are high. It was perfect for us as we stayed in an adjoining hotel. Not sure I would seek out otherwise.

    Of course Times Square is full of junk food restaurants: Ranging from Bubba Gumps to two Junior Cheesecakes. Add in Applebee's, Red Lobster, TGIF and well you have what makes up the awfulness of Times Square's foray into suburban strip mall mediocrity and its limited culinary choices. Blue Fin, (with some flaws) is certainly an improvement on chain food offerings. The problem I had with Blue Fin was not the food or the ambience (both of which were fine) but the fact that we had no less than four servers attending to our table. Four servers without communicating to one another that we had been asked the same questions or placed orders. As for the food, the pastas were fine, the fish was good, appetizers were not bad and the drinks were nice. Its also a comfortable place to enjoy a pre or post theatre dinner. In spite of the service issues I would still go back -not just because of the dearth of other choices but the kitchen and even the disorganized staff are fine and worthy of another chance.

    Trip Advisor scores again !! Don't be put off by the location. Right off Time Sq. The Sea Food is very good as is the Wine list. Provence Rosé in NYC. TRES BIEN
