  1. Best I've had in the OC, and open for Sunday lunch:

      Second that one if you can get in. The restaurant doesn't sit that many.

        Thirding it, hopefully you can get a seat. Great fish quality and presentation, and a nice environment for mom's day. You could even head over to Crystal Cove beach afterwards and walk around. Downside: the omakase (if you choose to go that route) isn't really filling so you may need to order extra items. I wish I had known this before, cause we weren't even full after eating our dessert course, so we had to order more food; kind of messed up the flow of the meal (but we ended up with some awesome toro, so it worked out fine).

          Must depend on your appetite. Both my hubbie and dad were full with the omakase, not stuffed, but not hungry. There's also a sushi lunch special that's pretty filling.

          Plus you can always top it off by walking over to Pacific Whey and get a cupcake or something.

            I concur. Bluefin is *THE* place. Perfect for a special occasion.

            Here are some photos of the venue and its food:

              Might have been caused by my insatiable desire for raw fish
