Best sushi hands down! The ballerina roll, spicy tuna, and crunchy rolls were excellent. The rice is flavorful and airy. We also tried the grilled octopus which was really good. Overall great experience, we'll definitely go back and recommend it!

The sashimi roll is very good, no rice but wrapped in cucumber. The salmon sushi is also very good, they put a lemon sauce on top that is very tasty

This is an upscale and traditional sushi restaurant, but truly amazing. I was nearly crying with joy given how delicious the sushi was. I had one mouth watering bite after another, and just couldn't stop. They had a very nice selection of daily specials with many fish you don't see very often on top of the base regulars. The Japanese... More

Awesome sushi, generous portions, good service, friendly and helpful sushi chefs. We wandered into this place and decided to stay because they could seat us immediately. My wife and i were both glad we did. My wife is just learning to appreciate raw fish, but there were plenty of cooked options to make her happy including a tasting crab claw... More

My husband and I joined 4 friends for dinner this past Saturday evening. We go to Bluefin quite often but hadn't reviewed it in a while. Suffice to say that this was yet another in a series of wonderful meals. The sushi is great and fresh, there are some amazing and interesting appetizers, and the service is wonderful.

We have never been disappointed at Blue Fin. The fish and seafood is ocean fresh. The preparations are beautiful and tastes are outstanding. The only things that could be better is the service and prices. It is very expensive but worth it! No trip to Newport Beach would be great without a stop at Blue Fin. If you want to... More
