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.

We lived in North Laguna for years before dining here and now dine here at least twice a month if not more! Very fresh food! Great service! Flavorful Miso. Wonderful Saki assortment. Full bar. Rolls are pricey but large. You don't need to order as many as you would normally! Great fried calamari dish as well!

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.

Did sushi and rolls. Bluefin specialty roll and caterpillar role were very good. Two people, no alcohol, 4 rolls (2 specialty, 2 regular) and 4 pieces of sushi $140USD.

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.

Had an amazing experience. The sushi is so fresh and there are interesting choices from the standard fare. Main menu is very interesting too. Had tempura oysters with fresh mushroom sauce. Service was excellent and staff very helpful answering question. Best sushi I've eaten

The food was excellent, but the entire time we were there (a not-so-busy Saturday for lunch), we felt like the waiter was trying to rush us out. When a warm mushroom salad with one razor clam, two orders of sashimi (6 pieces each), & two beers cost $110, let me at least enjoy it!

Thank Juan Carlos Gor... G
