    The sashimi and rolls are very good. They were very helpful with making gluten free choices for a person with celiac.

    I have always really enjoyed dining at Blufish. The food is pricy, but is always fresh and delicious. However, the restaurant was full and very understaffed. Our waitress was very friendly and apologetic, but clearly overworked, disorganized and frazzled. The young man that brought some of our food basically plunked it down and walked away. One of us,that ordered separately from our group of three, received all of her order; I received my tempura shrimp before the two items we asked for first; and wine came in the middle of dinner. We needed to ask for water, as well as cutlery, several times. We will definitely continue to enjoy a meal here again. However, if the restaurant wants to improve, they should provide staffing according to their reservations.

    I enjoy blufish every time I go! However, I have a 3 only because we ordered 3 rolls and an appetizer, but only received 2 rolls and our bill immediately after. Thought it was odd. Will be back however! Still delicious food.

    We ordered 5 dishes. The gyoza, BluFish scallops, caterpillar roll and banana and ice cream dessert were all excellent. The one disappointment was the Super Dynamite roll because the soft shell crab was not recently cooked, therefore it was not crunchy like it usually is.

    Nothing to really complain about, just note that if you are sitting near the windows during the winter, you will feel the cold coming from them. A sweater is a quick fix. Also, seated next to the door, we did had a nice divider between us, but did notice the constant flow of dish delivery service people coming and going. It was busy that night. Still would go again, one of my favourite places for sushi. Reservations are a must and glad it was so easy to use open table app

    It seems that letting the restaurant know we were on a date gave them the great idea to set us up at a nice window table. Unfortunately, when push came to shove and they needed the space they had us move into the middle of the restaurant before we were even asked to place our drink order. It gave me a little pause to see the new patrons served more quickly as well. I love BluFish and I recommend it to everyone, but this experience was a little off for me. I won't bother selecting the occasion next time on OpenTable, and obviously people who take the time to make a reservation aren't treated much better, so has me questioning whether I should take the time to even make a reservation at all.

    Went for a birthday. 5 people total, spent ~$280. Our waitress was super nice :)) Food was really good, not sure if worth $280 total but the overall experience was good. They gave deep-fried bananas along with ice cream on the house for the birthday (I hate bananas so I only had the ice cream, everyone else enjoyed the deep-fried bananas though. (It came out after we finished eating our cake so we were really full haha The restaurant was surprisingly smaller than expected. The washroom was a wack green and kinda crusty looking (not a "nice" washroom").

    We ordered tempura, sashimi and a variety of rolls. Everything was delicious and so perfectly cooked. The server came to the table just the perfect amount (was not annoying or neglectful). It was quiet with only one table. Excellent experience overall.

    I really enjoyed the sushi because it wasn’t too salty and you could taste the individual flavour of the food. The combinations were very good and I liked the red dragon roll the best
