I have never been there on a Saturday night and service had always been excellent. Saturday night was busy and service wasn't just bad, it was awful. The server was pleasant when he showed up, but we had long waits, and someone else offered to bring us dessert, then the check before we were done ordering sushi. They also need to ask about whether or not we want straws...they really overuse instead of making an effort to cut down. That said, we will go back because the food is good...just not on a Saturday.

wonderfully fresh sushi, extensive menu, well appointed restaurant. draft Japanese beer.full bar.
My fave is the chirashi ...best I have had anywhere.
The Glenview location (not on Open Table for somr reason) is just as good in all regards, but probably busier.

Something for everyone! Reliable highlight is Bibimbop with beef -- the serving dish is great as it develops a crust as you eat. Server Michelle was perfect in attitude and pacing.

Even though restaurant was not as busy as usual, we felt that waiting staff could be present more often to address our table’s needs. We waited for drinks for a while. Never got a water refills. Busboy rolled his eyes when we asked for no ice in any of our water glasses, since we had kids at our table. Waiter and trainee were very nice, but would disappear for 10-15 minutes, and we had to send kids to track them down and bring to our table. At the end, when the bill was presented, I waited long time for it to be picked up, and our party was leaving, so I ended up bringing it upfront to check out. The tables felt sticky and we felt less special, as the chapsticks were wrapped in paper, rather then previous presentation.

Food as always was outstanding. Service was good, but we were noticeably rushed. Entrées arrived before we had a chance to finish salads, and there was not a wait for table at the time. Other than that, it was a fine dinner. They just need to slow down and pace service.

This was our first time at Blufish and we were celebrating our anniversary. I love the look and feel of the place both inside and out. They have nice outdoor seating as well. Service was great and so was the food. The price is a little high for my taste normally but it's comparable to any nice restaurant. I would recommend for a nice occasion.

We were there to celebrate a birthday.
Our reservation noted it was s birthday and I added a comment we were celebrating a birthday. Our waiter was never advised so we could not acknowledge the birthday. Food was fantastic! Would come back.

Wow! This restaurant rocks

The bad news: it took way too many years not to realize such a great Japanese restaurant was within 45 minutes of my Home. Japanese dining up in SE Wisconsin is a form of punishment to those that crave perfectly prepared sushi et al.

The good news: my life sentence to endure lousy SE WI sushi has been commuted.... thanks to Blufush Sushi!!!!

The freshest fish, eye appeal is spot on; taste and texture is fantastic.

Three of us met for lunch on a Wednesday afternoon. The food, as always was fresh, delicious with a stellar presentation; sadly, our service left much to be desired.
The young lady who was assigned to us was not friendly or engaging at all, with no sense of how inefficient she was. Several times we had flag down someone else to “get” her to come by our table. She also got one of our orders wrong. No apology, or grasp of how annoying that has to be to a table. Indifferent in every was describes her service skill, and personality.
We will be back, and hopefully we will have a server who cares.
