A tiny extremely popular restaurant. Everything is of highest quality from fish to elaborate dishes. The sushi doesn't disappoint. An outstanding value for the quality of the ingredients and preparation.

We often go to Blue Fin after mass on Sunday's. Terrific sushi chefs that prepare the best sushi in the OC. Great saki selection that has put a hole in my wallet numerous times.

Very nice place, not huge, staff is very Japanese which I consider a very good thing! Very professional, yet gracious. Its not inexpensive, but the sushi is a cut above everywhere else. The fish was incredible, great variety and beautiful presentation. Expensive but worth it.

We always love this place for top of the line sushi. The dishes are elegant and very fresh. Delicious. The noise level sometimes get a little much.

The sashimi was fresh, firm and delicious. The bento box was a treat --from the chawan mushi to the tempura, steak, sashimi, sushi and other items. The service was attentive. The meal was a lovely experience.

We are sushi snobs and this place is one of the best. Sushi is very fresh, cutting edge food pairings, very unique dishes....yummy yummy yummy. My only disappointment is the atmosphere which is lacking. High quality seafood and very expensive but worth every bite.
