The chef was so backed up with take out orders he couldn’t prepare the dine in orders. We waited over an hour and half to receive part of our order. We canceled the rest when he hadn’t even began to prepare the rest after almost 2 hours of waiting. Of course it was my sons order, who was extremely hungry after playing a 75 minute soccer game! The restaurant had very few dine in customers and shouldn’t have had to wait that long for food. We won’t be going back.

We left without being served which makes me sad because the one time we did eat there it was the best sushi I have had in Arizona. We waited without receiving all of our drinks and not ordering food after more than a half hour.

Waited an 1 hr and 15 minutes for appetizers. Never got our food. Left as the waiter was telling us it was his last day and that management wasn’t doing enough to support the restaurant. Terrible experience.

Blu sushi
Jeffery (our server), Ryan ( Who first greeted us as we walked in the door), Eli (a waiter), you all made our time there so special.
Richard & Jenie (?) (partners/owner) you both deserve more acknowledgment for your hard work, dedication, hiring the best employees and serving such incredible dishes.
I think I found my new favorite local sushi restaurant. We loved everything.
Monkey brain, deep-fried mushrooms stuffed with crab meat.
Miso soup, was some of the best! Good miso to me, means a good restaurant, you got to start there.
We order the chef pick of 12 different Sashimi. The Inferno roll and ??, I can’t remember the name. All I can say, is that we enjoyed everything!
Such a variety on the menu it was hard to choose from.

I WOULD RECOMMEND!

This is a really convenient location in North Scottsdale, but unfortunately, service has never been very good. The food is typically pretty good, but the wait and the manner in which the owners make you feel is not very warm.

We had a reservation at 6:45, made it on time, it took the food especially the sushi order close to an hour and half to be served. We were very disappointed that we didn’t get to enjoy the food.
I don’t think the food and the service were worth the wait.

The food was good but they were understaffed and service was lacking because of that. They needed a manager there to seat people and run food and drinks. The poor servers were running around, very little attention given to their customers. And the restaurant itself could use a makeover- not much ambience.

There needed to be at least three more staff members here at the time of our reservation. I felt awful for the waitress. She was trying really hard but had TOO much on her plate.

Food was good. We would return but with a smaller group.

This is the best sushi we've had in North Scottsdale. The food is very fresh and the menu is extensive with many interesting choices. We were there at 4PM and it felt very safe since few diners eat that early. The service was top-notch. This will be our new go-to place for sushi.

Richard is a genius with his knowledge of fish and the high quality and unusual species that he purchases. Well beyond what we have found at other sushi places. Casual atmosphere and friendly staff. Lunch is a great time go if you're in a hurry. I've only been there once for dinner and it was pretty busy. Food came up pretty quickly and timely as we placed our full order at one time. I think it would serve them well to have more staff on hand during high season as the service for drink refills and plate pick up was fairly slow as the traffic picked up inside. Perhaps have a table bus person pick up plates and fill drinks aside from the wait staff. Just a thought. We'll be back! Thanks!

Do NOT book this restaurant on open table. This place does not honor the opentable reservations. We showed up and were rudely told that they do not take online reservations. When questioned why they were then listed on open table the waiter curtly responded “I’m not the owner.” He then proceeded to tell us that we should have called to make a reservation and that they could not accommodate us. Even though the restaurant was 50% empty. He didn’t even offer us a wait time. He was so rude and unapologetic. Didn’t try the food but do not recommend.

We showed an hour prior to closing. Our waitress was a young lady who was super helpful, but our Hot Tea was cold and she ended up sweeping up the entire restaurant while we were trying to enjoy our sushi. I understand it’s late, but I’m better with panko opposed to actual skin flakes. Sushi was decent. Some child was jumping on and off of the booth next to us which was “unique.”

Service was verrrrrrrryyyyyyyy slow. Sushi and miso was decent. No ambiance to speak of. Maybe if we had sat at the bar service would have improved. Hot cooked dishes definitely seemed to come out faster than sushi did. With all the great sushi places in this area, we probably won't be back to Blu.
