    Love the food, service, and ambiance at Blue Fish but dang they’ve gotten more and more expensive every month it seems. The sushi is always tasty and reliable . We’ve been regular customers for years now and love eating there but the prices keep creeping up. I may need to look for a more affordable option.

    Fast food serving. Great food quality and aesthetics. A little pricy but good for any special occasions if not casual dining. FYI, only accept valet parking so need to prepare some cash for tips.

    Sunday 5pm, mostly empty. Waiter seemed annoyed that he was working. Valet guy was great. Sushi was passable, definitely better than HEB but not by a huge margin. Would have been ok with a better waiter. Soma is consistently better in my experience.

    Wasn't impressed with the first hand impression on information regarding the restaurant. My reservation was at 8:15 and was feeling rushed by the waitress at 8:40 letting us know last call was at 8:45 for food and drinks. Felt like she could have said that when we first arrived. Food and drinks were okay, not sure if I will return. But the ambience was great

    Appetizers, Kobe Sizzler and Crispy Brussel sprouts were both good. Ordered Fried Calamari and Stuffed Jalapenos. Never received but weren't charged either. Good thing.. would've been too much food for just two people. ALL Sushi rolls were great. Ordered the Wagyu Short Rib. I don't recommend it. It didn't have much flavor, a bit on the cold side. Definitely not worth the price. Stick to seafood is my recommendation. Sushi -5, Beef- 2

    The quality of the food is very good. Always very fresh. The salmon tower is getting smaller & smaller. Price vs value is still reasonably balanced. I am a regular customer.
