    I made a reservation to celebrate my husband’s birthday who loves seafood. He enjoyed every dish he order and so did I. Thank you for the little candle and desert.

    Our waitress Natalia was so friendly and took care of us! Looking at my receipt I realize that she didn’t take our 10% off (we are theatre subscribers and had a coupon that they gave us with our tickets). But it doesn’t matter…. We attend your restaurant before every play and love your food!

    The selection of fish is impressive for Winnipeg. The quality was exceptional and the staff was great. There’s a reason why this place has been around for so long. Overall a great experience.

    It was my wife’s birthday and I wanted to take her somewhere different. Wow! The food was unique and wonderful: the flaming blufish scallops and soft shell crab were fanatic! The cocktails were delicious - the Tokyo sour is a must. We highly recommend Blufish and will be back.

    We were going to the Eagles concert. The restaurant was very busy with Skip the Dishes drivers. We had to leave without getting the dessert we ordered which was too bad. Our server was very nice but obviously ran off her feet. I have gone to Blu Fish many times over the years. Was a little disappointed.

    The freshest, tastiest sushi in the city by far. I recommend the blufish scallops which comes complete with zambuca lit on fire & the Cajun Seared Salmon Sashimi - which melts in your mouth. If you are not into sashimi, all of the rolls are expertly rolled and delicious too. The cocktail menu is also lovely - very well made and a nice variety of yummy drinks to choose from. Very cute place to go for a birthday, or anniversary date, or just a great night out with friends!

    Obviously a popular place. Lots of takeout orders while we were there. We love sushi. They have some interesting rolls. We tried a couple of their creations. They were pretty good. Nigiri were good. Overall pretty good, but not great. Priced appropriately for what you get.

    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.
