    My fiancé and I had a wonderful time, our server was outstanding. She was running behind in the beginning but the place was very busy and I have a lot of relatives who work in the food industry so we were very understanding. We wanted to try a new sushi place and it was perfect place to go, food was more than excellent (recommend River Rock Beef or Truffle Salmon). Our server was super sweet, she even comped our Mochi Ice Cream Dessert!

    Great Place! The Food was fantastic, Sake great, the service was very good, but she could have been a bit more helpful with the Tuesday Specials, we had to ask if it was all Vegan, then what rolls, etc. Maybe you guys need a list since it's not all Vegan rolls that are discounted. Other than that the place is super!!! We are making it a regular dinner haunt!!!

    Food and wait staff were great, however, the time it took to receive our food was poor. Our first set of rolls (4) took ~25min, which was completely acceptable. However, we ordered one additional roll, which took about ~28min to arrive. Not sure if it was because the waitress closed us out because she had to attend to a larger party next to us and the system lost it, but taking that long for one roll just made for a very negative experience. Other than that, the food tasted great and our two waiters tried to make the best of the situation.

    My only negative comment is that 3/4 rolls we ordered were difficult to eat because they fell apart. I wouldn't call myself an expert, but I've been using chopsticks since I was a kid. We both had a hard time picking them up because the rice crumbled or the roll opened.

    Service: We were politely greeted by hostess and taken to our table. Some of the tables are oddly positioned close together in order to maximize tables. We sat at one of these tables and we’re not greeted by a server for another 20 minutes. I had to request a server come to our table to take our drink order. Once we had a server she was very nice, upbeat and professional. Some points of improvement, guests should not have to ask each time to refill their beverages, when served a salad, guests should not have to ask for a fork after the server drops the dish and hurries away. The pay the bill at the table was pretty efficient and I liked how we could immediately leave once the bill arrives. Food: We tried 3 rolls. Roja which was okay, Spicy Gringo which has a spicy BBQ flavor and the Tekka roll. We were excited to try these rolls based off of photos seen on social media. An honest opinion is these rolls were just okay. Definitely on par with the rest of Houston’s middle of the road sushi restaurants but I thought Blue was marketing itself as upper tier sushi restaurant based on ambiance and pricing. The miso soup was good, tofu was flavorful and bowl presentation was fun. Salad was just okay. Ambiance: The place is really well designed. Good date night spot. Bar looked like it was fully stocked. Price: Granted we went during happy hour, the rolls only provided 5 pieces. Normally you see 8 pieces for these prices. Not that it’s not worth the price, it’s just that it doesn’t feel like your getting a massive value out of the dish. They’re are competing sushi establishments with similar prices with more food on the plate with similar quality food. Think Uchi sushi, high price but high quality. This is high price but mediocre quality. Overall: The service piece was a miss, the food was okay and environment was well decorated. I’d give this a 2/5 maybe a 3/5 if service had been better.

    Sushi was bland with a lot of rice and not much fish. It was very overpriced for the quality, and the ambiance was terrible for a date night. Worst part was that I got sick after eating here. Definitely will not go back

    When we arrived we had a terrible experience with the hostess who was extremely rude to us. Even though we had a reservation she didn't want to put us at a table and said she couldn't tell how long it would take. We left Katy with our two daughters to celebrate my husband's birthday so it would be very frustrating to have to leave. In the end another attendant helped us and the night was pleasant. But beware of the hostess. It can ruin your experience. The food is of the highest quality! Worth it!

    Appetizers are good (had edamame and calamari). Drinks are sweet. Rolls are ok (roja). Sashimi was good (yellowtail). It was raining and there was no mat at the front doors so it was very slick walking in! Woman’s restroom is tiny and compact for multiple people. Only 1 sink and 1 air dryer.

    Blue Sushi is our go-to Sushi Restaurant. The food is great as well as the service. We especially love the tuna stack shareable dish. And we always get our favorite rainbow roll and then try other different rolls each time. Also, atmosphere is very nice and relaxed.

    Drinks took forever to be sent to our table (took 30 minutes) our server kept forgetting and would even say it. Food took an hour and we also didn’t get out appetizers until after we got our sushi. Ambiance is good but not worth the slow service, sushi was sub par as well.

    Went twice in one week, on Wednesday it was pleasant but Sunday was slow with food and drinks. 20 minute wait for drinks and even longer for food. It’s happy hour all day on Sunday but i feel the restaurant should be prepared for the rush especially with taking reservations and knowing the minimum of how many people/tables to expect.

    Really disappointed by my experience here. The restaurant itself is beautiful & I had high expectations after reading about it online. The service was below subpar, our waiter knew nothing about sushi or the restaurant’s menu, & the sushi was simply not good & questioned the freshness of some of the fishes. My group of friends love sushi and have been to all the houston hot spots & this is just NOT one of them. The appetizers were tasty, but that was it. For the money, go elsewhere.

    Cute place, loved the ambience. Greeters were friendly and took us right to the table. Food was good, we lucked up and it was happy hour all day (Sunday) we didn’t know this until we overheard another waiter tell his table. Rolls were small and a bit pricey. And our waitress wasn’t as attentive after while and we seemed to be a bit rushed at times. Other than that there’s no complaints. We will return.
