My husband and I absolutely love Blue Fin sushi - it's one of those quiet, neighborhood restaurants with excellent food and service that you don't want anyone else to know about, but it's just too good not to tell other people. Blue Fin has a laid back atmosphere in a neighborhood full of scene-y, loud, and expensive sushi spots. We've... More

This place made a great date night. Nice, quiet atmosphere. My husband & I spent $90 on sushi which is more than we've ever spent on any meal. The food was good but I probably wouldn't spend that much again. There was a Groupon available when we went but there was a bit of a language barrier with our waiter... More

It's in the heart of Wicker "Hipster-galore" Park and so it is quite expensive. The rolls are great but you're definitely paying for it. I think you are paying more of the ambiance than the actual food. It is a very date-friendly restaurant.

Used a Groupon, prices were reasonable, dragon roll was very good. You can BYOB. They charge just a few dollars per person for cork fee. Nice atmosphere.

We visited this restaurant with friend who lived in the neighborhood. My sister and her husband are vegetarians and were so happy with thee many veg rolls. Great seaweed salad and our rolls were awesome. Since we brought our own wine - the bil for the four of us was very reasonable. Friendly waitress and worth a return visit.
