Omaha >Food & Dining > Blue Sushi Sake & Grill
great sushi. not only do I enjoy all of the different rolls here (there is a huge variety), I also love the drinks...they have a huge selection of different and unique drinks which is part of the reason why I come to Blue Sushi -- great night out with the girls!
Blue Sushi Sake Grill. Easily my favorite sushi bar in Omaha. I absolutely love their variety and presentation. I would say by now my wife and I should have some form of stock in Blue. We have been eating here for years and go at least twice a month. Try the itchy seabass. It is very unique and super tasty.
Avoid food, service, atmosphere.
This strip mall location is operated by someone who has no experience with Japanese culture and has never bothered to even make the tiniest attempt to learn.
The sushi chefs: Americans who clearly have no training in the art of the sushi slice
The waitstaff: Incompetent mid-twenties poorly dressed men and women who are incapable of remembering your order or apologizing (verbally and on the check) for forgetting
The fish: BAGGED, FROZEN SEA SCALLOPS. Yes, the fish are not fresh and is very likely not sushi grade.
Would you thaw a bag of frozen fish and serve it to your family? Blue would. The fish are also covered in things to hide their frozen food taste. Hot sauce on everything. If the owners had ever been to a real Japanese sushi bar, they would know that all this flavoring is unnecessary and a clear indicator of their poor quality fish.
The restaurant itself: typical cheesy mid-America with IKEA furniture driven in from Illinois and no attempt to make a comfortable environment, only an attempt to make the place look like another city without spending any money, including the trip to see nice restaurants in other cities.
Finally, to top off the incredibly terrible dining experience they provide metal chopsticks so the place is filled with the sound of metal sticks constantly hitting each other to increase the provocation.
If this restaurant was in some other bigger, cooler city it wishes it was in, it would have closed down long ago.
And don't get me started on neighboring Red. A preview: smoking and sushi! Tasteless!
The best sushi in Omaha!. I love this restaraunt! The atmosphere is amazing including the people and decor. The sushi and martinis...are unmatchable!
