It was challenging to work sizable party with just one waiter, even though she was attentive and quick, another service person would have been useful.

Excellent sushi and other Japanese favorites like Udon and Robata as well as very reasonable prices. The noise level is loud but tolerable.

The food was very good but the drinks not so much... very inconsistent and a couple were tasteless. Truly ordered the same drink 3 times at the table and all 3 versions were completely different... taste and appearance. Service was terrible. Server told us that something was a dumpling and it arrived as a skewer. Water service was non-existent. It is a shame that the high quality food was overshadowed by such bad service and marginal cocktails. Will give it 1 more try... this was out first experience. Had high hopes.

Food was amazing, but our server was not hospitable. I sat with empty plates and martini glass the whole time. I was never asked if I wanted another drink or how the meal was. Zero personality or friendliness. If they are so rushed, they should have more servers. Or get friendly ones.

My wife and I love the food , service and especially the ambiance. If you did not know, you would think you were at one of the downtown Chicago Resturants. I would absolutely recommend Bluefish to everyone. People we told have also told others and everyone loves the place. Keep up the good work.

This was my first time dining here. The occasion was a business lunch. The restaurant was nicely decorated and appealing and the selections good. Unfortunately I did not like the taste of my sashimi salad. However this alone is not the reason for the rating. It was lunchtime and a but busy but I had difficulty getting the waitresses attention for refills of hot tea.

It did not start out well because they could not find our Open Table reservation, for four and we had to wait over 7 minutes before it was obtained. After that debacle we were seated and out waitress fully made up for our 7 minute wait time. She was prompt and courteous. Our meal was scrumptious and our service was great.

The sushi was really good, as was the service. It was LOUD in there, so it was hard to hear our conversation at times. It got quieter as the restaurant emptied out. The service was good but they did not refill our water glass towards the end of night. They closed at 10:30 and it seemed like the staff was ready to go. I would go back, though!
