Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I ate here one evening with a work colleague. It is right in the heart of the touristy Times Square so we weren’t sure if it would be poor quality and over-priced but we were pleasantly surprised. We had 4 different sushi rolls between us...and a couple of beers. Food was very good and service was friendly. Decor was interesting!More

It has been awhile since eating here. This visit I was very disappointed with the service & some of the food. Tuna poke tacos must have, crunchy & flavorful. Although the oysters I received were not Kumamoto as ordered, they were fresh & deliciously cold....Very disappointed by the lobster/crab rolls (hardly any inside bun). Also the wedge salad had almost no toppings & was under dressed. Our waitress messed up our order twice.More

We go to this restaurant nearly every visit to New York -- we stay at the nearby Hotel Edison, and we love it. In the past couple of years, we felt like the excellence had been lost a bit, but Blue Fin is back as...a truly outstanding seafood restaurant. We had the miso-glazed seabass and scallops on a bed of seasoned corn kernels, and both were excellent. Excellent wines and cocktails as well, in a spacious and reasonably quite Manhattan restaurant! But what really made the place was the excellent service from servers Karwee and Adrian, both so attentive, friendly, and diligent. They made the experience. We'll be back -- because Blue Fin is back!More

Returned to NYC for a Spring trip and returned to Blue Fin. Dean is still the manager and Karwee and Adrian were our great servers. Both had warm personalities and made sure we had a great evening. Food is consistently good and environment is very...spacious.More

Great seafood for a pre-theater experience. The tuna ,the chilean sea bass and the salmon were all excellent. Love the decor with the blue jellyfish lights, jellyfish lights.

We decided to have some sushi on our city trip in NYC, so we ended up at bleu fin! As we had a boat trip later in the evening, we have made an early reservation, so the restaurant was very quiet. We were seated on...the ground floor. Our server was very attentive and interested. He checked in with us, on the right timing. We’ve tried multiple sushi rolls, and tried the calamari & gyoza. Was all good! Decent portions, and great pricing for NY standards. Only one con: the fried tempura was cold. That wasn’t fresh, but already made before. If the fried fish would have been warm, the sushi will be 10/10. In stark contrast to our server, the hostess was very uninterested. She was literally talking with a friend/family. When we left the restaurant she just continued talking, and wasn’t saying us goodbye. Overall, great location and good sushi! Would definitely recommend.More

Really delicious sushi and oysters. Both tasted fresh and delicious. Service was quick and friendly. Decor was beautiful and it was a nice, trendy atmosphere upstairs with fun music. Prices were reasonable. I’d return here for sushi again.

I don't recall a vegan menu but there were many options on the menu so I would recommend going on line and looking at their menu.
