I love this Blue Chili! – The food is great, the ambiance is terrific, the DJ plays great music... The martinis are pretty tasty as well. I definitely recommend this place for a either a romantic dinner or a group gathering.

GREAT EXPERIENCE – I went last night and had a WONDERFUL time. This place is amazing, the interior is simple yet elegant. The staff is very attentive and friendly. Now for the food, this was some of the best sushi in NYC and made with FRESH FISH. If you go you must order the following appetizers, the chicken sate (which was bought to us flaming) it was a real eye catcher and the Crab Meat Pancake which had lumps of fresh crab inside that were to die for. We ordered an assortment of sushi (California, Spicy Tuna, Boston and Shrimp Tempura) and were pleased with each choice. The presentation of each item was so stunning we almost didn't want to touch it. Every bite was a taste of heaven. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND VISITING bluechili. I CANT WAIT TO GO BACK :)

I love this place – The service is great...oh and great martinis too! The atmosphere is very trendy and on some nights there is a DJ there...great place to go before you head out to a lounge....or just a night out with the girls.

Pan Asian Served in Posh White Setting – Decor at Bluechilli is fabulous! Very Asia de Cubaesque, the lower level is completely done in a gleaming stark white with lighted coloring behind the bar (it sounds weird but is actually very trendy). For such a trendy restaurant, I was surprised by the small crowd in the restaurant. Food was good. Everything was about average but, the stuffed mushrooms app and pad thai are exceptional. Drink specials during the week. Service was excellent. Very decently priced for such a beautiful restaurant. Will definately be back for low priced pad thai is a great setting. Ps: I feel part of the reason why this restaurant isn't bustling is due to location. But, a definate gem in the neighborhood!

Bad food for what you are paying – Ok, to be fair, the food is average, but when you pair the food with it's price, the food is WAY below average.

I actually placed an order for delivery. I had asked for TORO (fatty tuna), but I felt that I received regular tuna instead. For those of you who had TORO before, you'll know that TORO has a distinct taste and texture. It's also pricy.

The yellow tails I ordered were also of poor quality. It was the kind that was stringy and you had to chew it for a long time wondering if you would choke if you just went ahead and swallowed it.

Overall, I was disappointed with the quality and taste of the food. It received such a high rating. And this is New York!!! I thought New Yorkers KNOW sushi! Ahhh, what a disappointment.

I liked it! – Food was delicious and interesting. The grilled shrimp appetizer was fantastic. The changing color of the lights was a bit weird, but a cool effect. Went there before 6pm and found the place almost empty, so the service was great. Even after it got crowded we were well looked after. Definitely try this place out!

Everything went smoothly – I found Blue Chili on citysearch and was planning a birthday party for my best friend, so I figured why not there? Overall the dinner was great everything went smoothly especially with a group of 15 people. Our large party was seated upstairs. The service was prompt and helpful, food was good, and Blue Chili really suited all the needs for a great Birthday party. The sushi was fresh, but the main focus for me were on the cocktails, which were all great. We had a wonderful Birthday dinner and a good meal. Can't complain.

fun and relaxed – in the theater district where the selection of good eats and a fun, hip, low-key atmosphere is scarce, blue chili takes a stand. my friends and i had such a good time on New Years Eve here - the service was exceptionally friendly and hospitable, drinks were varied from novel martinis to your usual red, and the food had great presentation and flavor. this place is a find. enjoy!
