Bluefin Restaurant Review

: Blue lighting and sleek, modern furniture lend this downtown lounge a relaxing ambience. Bluefin’s dining room is spacious and dimly lit. Diners can opt for traditional tables or comfortable sofas. The vibe pairs well with the sushi rolls, nigiri or sashimi, including the creatively named fusion sushi, such as the Mama Kimchee (yellowtail topped with spicy kimchi) or the Majik Mushroom (Kobe beef with truffle butter and mushroom salt). But picky kids (and the sushi-phobic) can find plenty to eat among the entrées, such as flatbreads, pork shoulder tacos and ramen bowls. Bluefin offers several brands of saké (hot and cold), while the wine selection features the usual affordable suspects without much in the high-end department. Desserts include sticky buns and crème brûlée.

BlueFin Memphis
by jtylermcclendon on Tue Aug 31, 2010 8:52 am
As I live only a few blocks from BlueFin, I have eaten there dozens of times over the last few years. While two years ago it was one of my favorite restaurants in town, it has gone dramatically downhill. The last three times I have eaten there I have had to wait at least 45 minutes to be served the first morsel of food--even when they are not full. That's a long time when you're starting with edamame. Furthermore, the food and drinks are dramatically overpriced; the whole thing I feel is geared up to take advantage of people who come into downtown Memphis from surrounding small towns and are willing to pay up for the atmosphere or simply do not know what eating sushi should be like.

Three weeks ago I went with a group of 4 other friends and we had to wait 30 minutes after being seated for a server to even take a drink order. Over the next two hours it took for us to get our food and finish, our server only returned two other times. Then, to top it off, they added an 18% gratuity for a party of 5 and the worst service I've had in years. Upon my complaining they refused to take it off! I swore I would never eat there again. Unfortunately, I broke my promise to myself and ordered takeout again. That's unfortunate because I received a takeout box crammed with sushi rolls stacked on top of one another.
