I love the quality and also the creativity of their sushi menu. Fresh, super tasty, overall awesome sushi in a nice atmosphere. Their strip mall location is deceiving as this place is really excellent. Surpasses many downtown Chicago sushi places. Call to reserve as the locals love this place and it is often packed!

This is a very average sushi place other than their prices. It costs a lot for a roll that you may not like. Dont get your hopes up.

It's a bit of a zoo with long lines and people everyone bit there are there for a reason. Best sushi in glenview by a large margin. Not cheap but worth the quality.

Fantastic service, food was delish, I ordered chicken teriyaki and could not eat it all. Mango martinis, first one was great second one was more bitter but good. If you go for dinner make reservation it was busy. Loved the decor, tables are close so no privacy.

It's small so the line can get long, especially on Thursdays - Saturdays. They are busy any night of the week, which says a lot about it. Well worth... More

This restaurant is our go to for great sushi. We have been to many good sushi restaurants over the years including Katsu in Chicago, Nobu, and Sugar Fish in LA. Bluefish strikes the perfect combination of quality and value. The toro is as good as you can get in this area. Your meal at Bluefish will be good and service... More
