BluFish is an excellent restaurant with wonderful food. We love the place and will definitely go back. On this particular occasion, the service was slow because staff front and back seemed overwhelmed with volume. Not sure if the volume was from inhouse diners - more likely it was from delivery orders. Inconvenience was made up through significant complimentary food, so no overall complaints.

This restaurant is very crowded and the tables are concerningly close. The food is very good but because of the large number of people, it took a long time to get things, especially soy sauce which should have come automatically with the food (not have to ask for it and then wait 5 min to get it) and also the bill (had to ask repeatedly and then ask for a payment machine).

We had a lovely evening. The food was delicious, the lack of the fifth star was purely based on overall flavor compared to other restaurants. That said, their breaded-fried scallops…omg! Yes!
Zero regrets, will go again. Next time we are getting the chef’s table for sure!

Absolutely a must if you’re in the area. Some of the best sushi we’ve had. Interesting choices, great flavour, the fish is melt-in-the mouth. Lovely staff, nice ambiance. Tables are a bit close but it’s a small unassuming restaurant. Noise level is dependent on level of drinking at the next table, but people watching is also fun. A really great spot!

Their tuna carpaccio is phenomenal. Such a great deal from their seaweed salad. Miso soup is to die for. Furthermore, their fish is very fresh, and I highly recommend it!

We were seated right by the door and watched several Skype drivers call me and go. The food tasted good but the rolls were a bit clunky and hard to eat/not up to BluFish usual standards as far as I’m concerned.

Not the fine quality sushi we had hoped for based on their website.
Better than mall sushi.
Tempura was a heavy battered disappointment. Other house maki were only average, wasabi barely existed except for a foamy star shaped extrusion.
Is there sweetener in the sushi rice? An odd aftertaste...
Couldn’t have had better attention as there were no other customers in the restaurant- seemingly a popular neighbourhood takeout restaurant.

We had never been to BluFish, but our first experience was fabulous. The sashimi was fresh and abundant. Their gyoza is perhaps the best in Winnipeg and the BluFish scallops are highly recommended. Amazing.
