Sushi
Blue Sushi Sake Grill unites creative ingredients with energetic vibes, premium cold sake with happy moments to give you a fresh and fun new way to experience sushi. Our sushi and grill menus allow you to explore your sushi favorites in new and unexpected ways. We like to say that sushi is for sharing, and our menu encourages it. Order a spread of all your maki, nigiri and sashimi favs from the sushi bar, and throw in a few orders of starters from the grill. We'll stagger your plates so you can savor it all bite-by-bite, and maximize the sushi experience you've been craving all week. If you're not sure where to start, tour the menu during Happy Hour, where all our guest favorites — from our sushi, grill and drink menus — are available at an amazing value. We offer Happy Hour every day of the week at Blue Sushi Sake Grill!

    Order immediately. The kitchen takes 30+ minutes to prepare rolls when the place is at half occupancy. Other locations have a more polished, consistent operation. The LA Crunchy is delicious, as is everything else I had.

    Great food! The sushi rolls are awesome! Lettuce wraps are phenomenal. Service was good. They were super busy but food came out fast. Drinks were slow. Will definitely be back.

    Have been here numerous times and enjoyed it but tonight...terrible service.. had to ask for drinks after ordering. Appetizer came...cold. with the main course and one person's order for main came way after everyone else. Love coming here after performances at the Civic Center but I value my investment so mat look elsewhere. Server was either new or overworked.

    Food was good, but took way too long to arrive. There was a 30+ minute gap between receiving our appetizer and the sushi. The server was snotty about it when we asked to check on our order, saying that it takes 30-35 minutes (for 3 rolls?) for sushi orders. This timing is not listed on the menu nor were we warned when ordering. It definitely put a damper on the evening and we rushed to eat when it finally arrived as we had show tickets at the civic center.
    Blue Sushi Sake Grill - Des MoinesResponded on March 8, 2024
    Hello, we're sorry to hear of your disappointment. No, we do not put anything about timing on our menus. I've never heard of anyone doing that before. It definitely can take thirty minutes to receive your sushi as everything is hand-rolled to order, nothing is pre-rolled. We will always try and accommodate our guests though. If we are made aware of a time restraint we'll do our best to prioritize your ticket so you're able to get out faster. Kind regards, -Ryan M. w/ bssg & frg
