Good food - very creative plates.
Too bad it is closing - not sure what it will open as next.
Could tell they were closing. Always was a fav and went to the GF could try it before they closed. Hopefully the new concept will come with the service and experience they always had.
It’s closing next week but was good while it lasted. Food presented well and very tasty. Questioned why an item was not available when they ran out the night before. Another dish sold out by 9:00. Disappoint. Good luck with the rebranding.
absolute amazing as always! our server was amazing and the food was to die for!!
Great service, but the food is overpriced. Definitely not the best sushi in Toronto. I will not conduct business meetings at this establishment in the future.
The waitress is amazing... keeps remembering us and our orders. The food is awesome, her service is outstanding !
I took my husband here for his birthday and we had an amazing experience from start to finish. The service was fantastic. The food was delicious. They made it a very memorable experience for us
I was a touch surprised by the weak quality of their food preparation. My expectations much have been a touch too high. That aside, my biggest issue was the lack of attention by our server to keep my drink topped up. When I did engage the waitresses, they took a while before they topped up my drinks (and even with a reminder on one occasion). Call me high maintenance, call me picky, call me unreasonable, but call me the guy who paid for my meal and that of my guests.
Definitely nothing special. Over priced for what you’re getting as far as sushi goes.
I had very high expectations for this place so maybe this is what ruined it for me, but the sushi was very average. Food and drinks took way too long to come out, despite he fact that the place wasn't even that busy during this time.
Good atmosphere. Knowledgeable wait staff. Food was overpriced. More flare than substance. Dominant flavours were salt /soy which overpowered the more delicate ingredients. Disappointing portions.
Food was excellent and our server was fantastic! Beautiful decor as well.
Incredible food and service. Quality of food is amazing. A little bit pricey but well worth it for a special occasion.
Delicious! Creative, tasty offerings, wonderful ambience and really good service. Makes for a lovely night out.
Quiet evening so not many patrons. A bit too expensive for the average night out. The sushi choices were limited but very creative presentations and unique blend of flavors.
this remains on the best restaurants in Toronto. its pricey, but for a special occasion you cant go wrong.
This restaurant scores high on creativity but not so much on the quality of food. Unfortunately for Japanese cuisine, this could be a deal breaker. The decor and atmosphere were great, so were the wait staff. If they could put more effort into better raw material, this place can still have a lot of potential.
Local gem and a pleasure to have spent New Year's Eve there with my wife. Tasting menu, vibe and service were great.
Great place. Elegant yet approachable. Like Canada.
Absolutely incredible! Best meal ever!
Great service, love the décor. Very cool looking restaurant. Our server brought out plates of treats for my birthday, enough for the whole group to try, which was very nice. Only real complaint would be the lighting - it is very dark inside this restaurant. It is difficult to read the menu. Two members of our party had to use their phone's flashlight in order to read, and we noticed our neighboring table doing the same thing. This restaurant is a lot of share plates, which is great, but we had 9 people and it was a bit of a hassle trying to share plates up and down the table because not everyone sat directly next to their partner. Would go again though, I think it's a nice spot to have a date.
Great! Everything was wonderful.
Began to frequent Blowfish when it first opened. Quickly established itself as one of my go-to spots for fun dining. Hadn't been there in a decade so was a little apprehensive about returning for a taste. No worries - the food quality and ambience were as good as ever. Well done to Tak and his crew for maintaining such a high standard all these years!
Their Omakase is more like a sushi platter. There is no uniqueness to it. It’s not worth the money.
Decent at best, all around.
Great food and service as always, hadn’t been for a few years and they still got it. Meet it up
Always great at Blowfish.
Amazing as usual ! Best sushi place in Toronto
Food was delicious and service was great overall. Their sushi rolls were our favourite. The only down side is now that it's winter weather, it was too cold in the restaurant. Every time the door opened it made us uncomfortable and difficult to enjoy our delicious meal. Ask to sit away from the door!
I love the room - the high ceilings, beautiful windows and the fabulous prendants... the food is always so good.
Great experience every time I go. Food is special, unique and tasty. Great ambiance and great location. A little pricy but an overall special place.
Great experience, probably our 10th time there and the food was amazing. The service was great too, I would definitely recommend
I always have a fun time at Blowfish. I went with my sister and we really enjoyed the food. She was excited to go and enjoyed every dish. The experience lived up to our expectations!
Food and presentation was great, waitress was attentive, we had an excellent time celebrating a birthday. Will be back in the future.
We were from out of town, and I was dying to try their sushi. We were definitely satisfied, Food was absolutely amazing! Service was outstanding! Our waitress was very attentive, personable, and gave great recommendations. I was also in the service industry for a very long time, and she gets an A plus plus! We sat at the bar so it was a bit more private, our food and drinks came out in a very timely manner. Great choice of music, great vibe overall. We will be making the trip back for sure!
We found sushi to be decent. Our fav was the tuna topped with foie gras.
The staff was superb and the Hostess was fabulous! Very welcoming and made sure we were well taken care of for our wedding anniversary! Thank you
Portion sizes were small but really good. Overall very nice place
Outstanding!!! A very pleasant surprise to find this place and well worth another visit! A must for anyone who enjoys Japanese food!
Excellent place to hose your guests. Service and food was excellent.
