My 7 year old loves salmon sashimi and this is the only one place we will order it. We live on the other side of town, but the long drive is worth the food! The sashimi is always great quality and we love the service!...More

The restaurant has good food, but today they screwed up a 143.00 to go order of sushi and the manager, Kalani Broussard, offered to give 6 people a 10.00 gift certificate for a 143.00 wasted order. WOW Thanks Kalani! He sucks as a manager! Warning:...More

Description
...The opposite of a quiet, intimate sushi bar, the Blue Fish is enormous, loud, stylish and good. Where else can you find a signature roll called El Cubano ($9.50)? It's spicy pork, jalapeno, cilantro, Jalapeno pepper and carrots, with a sweet and spicy sauce. What's most refreshing here is that the menu is all Japanese -- no Thai food to confuse the palate. And to be honest, sushi purists will find plenty to keep them interested. Live specials such as Spanish mackarel, Sea Urchin, Live Hottate(scallop), Black Bass, mirugai (giant clam) and much more.Order the Ahi Tower to see just how well the kitchen can plate. It's tuna tartar and sesame oil over snow crab and avocado salad on a bed of wasabi infused rice. It's almost tragic to watch the server destroy this architectural marvel table-side to make it easier to eat. The "cake" portion of spicy tuna on crispy rice cakes in uzu and garlic sauce. It's delicious...
