Blue Water Grill
Posted by Suzanna on 02/20/2015
We have not been to the Blue Water Grill for a while. Yesterday, we happened to be in the area and decided to stop off for a quick dinner. I don't know whether it was because it was Restaurant week but the service was extremely slow, the food portions were tiny, we did not go with the RW menu so no excuse and the food was cold by the time it came out. Not impressed.

I've been going to Blue Water Grill for years. Mostly because the room itself is so beautiful and for brunch you really can't go wrong. After not having been for a couple of years I went back on Sunday. Once again I was happy with the experience. I have never been kept waiting for a table with a reservation. The food for brunch is always not only delicious, but reasonably priced as well. The service has always been good too.

We have eaten here numerous times over the years mostly dining outside for either brunch or dinner and the dining experience has been exceptional. Last night, 1/29 was no different. Our reservation was for 6 requesting a booth for 4 on the main floor. Upon arriving earlier they sat 2 of us right away till the rest of our party arrived something not all restaurants do. Customer service is outstanding from all of the staff. Our polished, friendly server Tom K was attentive for all 2 hours. Our group participated in the $38 restaurant week menu. The menu offered was superb with our party ordering from the delicious perfectly prepared steak au poivre to the moist not overly cooked salmon coupled with bottles of Muscadet.

This place was in a word...Subpar. The service wasn't bad but the food was unappetizing. Upon going into the restaurant it was not so bad. The maitre d was wonderful the waiter was ecstatic. If only the food exemplified the atmosphere. we ordered oysters and calamari. The royal miyagi was the best and we had a complementary gazpacho that was really good. But the calamari was inedible. I've had better frozen calamari!! Then we had our entrees. I ordered soft shell crab tacos which came as wraps? The guy who brought them had an attitude when I asked what was that! A wrap is different from a taco. I told them i didnt want it. My sister had swordfish with sweet potato hash with lobster. The sweet potato hash tasted like it was sitting at the side of the grill(like a diner) and they just reheated it. The sauce everything was over was like a red curry sauce with coconut cream (incredibly unappetizing). The swordfish was good but had no flavor but it was a great piece of fish. The gnocchi was not consistent. The sauce was way too thick for what was being served. It was poorly and even if they paid me I wouldn't ever ever go back there.

Waited almost an hour for steamed lobster that should have taken ten minutes tops and mash potatoes don't think it takes that long..Won't be going back there city crab is better and cheaper with more varieties..

Always surprisingly good despite the crowds and noise level. Excellent products and gracious service. Restaurant Week menu was a real value and terrific.

Great atmosphere with live entertainment. Foof was absolutely delicious. Fresh, seasoned nicely with a great presentation. Recommend chilean seabass that will melt in your mouth or salmon which will make you salivate for more . Dessert was divine and coffee great. A really nice spot for dates, celebrations or just to get out and mingle.
