Over the weekend, the highly anticipated opening of Blue C Sushi happened, bringing their 5th and largest sushi restaurant to the Eastside. The Downtown Bellevue location is on Bellevue Way at The Lodgeat Bellevue Square. Blue C Sushi offers an affordable, chic, conveyor belt sushi experience.

The new location is 2 stories high. The ground level, where you enter, has 2 conveyor belts. There is a traditional-style Belt Conveyor, as well as smaller elevated one in a bar-like area accommodating about 20 people, which can be reserved for groups. On the second floor there is a full bar, as well as a 1,600 sq.-ft. lounge. The lounge has 4 plasmas and an Xbox for each. This whole second floor is open to the public, but can also be rented out for private events.

Blue C Sushi will be bring a much needed, more affordable option to Downtown, without sacrificing on quality of food, atmosphere, or location.

This weekend, DJ Bogg-E will perform in the bar on Friday from 9:00pm until close.

  1. I visited Blue C for lunch last week and was impressed. Although I prefer a quiet & quaint atmosphere for dinner, Blue C is right on target for a convenient sushi lunch.

  3. Went there for lunch yesterday. A bit utilitarian inside, but the sushi is nice and is a good alternative to Uwajimaya when you don’t want to drive out to Overlake or Seattle.

  4. I did not get a chance to enjoy the sushi here. Although I wanted to go here after watching Watchmen on Friday night, sadly they have not figured out that a bar needs to stay open later than 11pm. Was looking for an alternative to the Parlor for the night. I did get a chance to try out Sake Bomb Sunday, It was very relaxed and a lot of fun to drink and get your game on one of the X box’s. The staff were talkative and nice. Overall, keep the bar open late on weekends and I will enjoy it more.

  5. Went to Blue C Saturday after a movie. It was beginning of happy hour. 4pm-ish

    We were the only people in the bar area, with 2 people working the bar. No one said hello, came to our table-nothing! They just continued to work stocking the bar.

    Several minutes later, a few more peole came in, sat at the bar, and got drink orders taken. Still no one came to our table. We got up and left-and probably won’t go back.

    Too many other choices in Bellevue to put up with ‘non-service’.

  6. Love it! Just ate there today. And may I note that they have wonderful vegetarian options!

  7. late nite in Bellevue

    no need to waste time with all the cookie cutter late nite stuff. in my opinion Tap House Grill is the best. always open late and all those beers. the staff is cool too.

  8. As a followup to my earlier comment: After checking out Blue C sushi I went down the street to Sushi Yama.

    Hands down, Sushi Yama is the better choice. The plates are about $2 less for higher quality fish, the atmosphere is great, and the sushi is rolled by the experts, not a rolling machine like they use at Blue C.

    It’s worth the walk to Sushi Yama.

  9. Sorry to be off topic, but I like your posts and I wanted some feedback for my blog. I have a hard time writing, but I do want to share my experiences. Am I stuck between a rock and a hard place? Or should I just do it?
