It was sooo delicious. I ordered the sword fish and crab sweet potatoes. Soo yummy. My boyfriend ordered the lobster which was good but not very filling. The rolls are excellent and the warm lobster salad was perfect! Very fun night out. We spent around $150 including tip and ordred 3 appetizers , 1/2 bottle of wine, and 2 main dishes. Definitely try it out!

My wife and I ate here on New Years Eve, 12/31/05. It wasn't good. The entrees were tasteless, without any character at all, and my caramel dessert didn't taste remotely of caramel. For the amount they charged for the prix fix, you'd think they'd throw in a free glass of champagne. They didn't. I've been to Blue Water before, but I will never do New Years Eve here again.

Been here a couple times -- the first time during Restaurant Week which wasn't so bad. Downstairs, jazzy and loud--really upbeat and sceney if you're into that; food was decent for the price (3-course for $35? I believe). Just came back tonite from eating in the bar. Lobster bisque app was just plain bland and I had the server pick a half dozen West Coast oysters for me, specifying that I wanted them meaty. The platter came out with only four, which was kind of odd, but as soon as I pointed it out she rushed to get the remaining two. They were succulent and juicy, however, just to my liking. My friend, however, did not fare so well as he ordered a shrimp salad with dressing on the side and, of course, it was liberally doused all over the leaves when it came out. Also, the upstairs was a mix of B&T families, singlets and tourists; not the most desirable on a Friday night but then again, that's probably the worst time to go anywhere and run into that (downstairs is usually a bit of a nicer crowd). Also, one of the hostesses was running around in a barely-there, halter top and low-riding pants straight from the 1/2-off rack at Strawberry that revealed a plethora of tattoos across her lower back and neck--quite tacky. Aesthetic and social gaffes notwithstanding, the service was very attentive and courteous and when I told the server I would pass on dessert, she offered it to me on the house to make up for the rather innocuous oyster slipup. Free fondue--can't beat that! Overall, nice experience for the service alone but I wouldn't recommend the food or the atmosphere.

Where's the food?! Small portions are a disappointment when you're going out to eat. This is rare to find at expensive restaurants, but it's the case here. Service is a bit spotty, too.

Portions are small, which is disappointing considering high prices.

I took my boss for dinner on a Thursday night and the place was lively and had a great atmosphere. However, the portions of the food is too small for the price! Quality of the food was just average as well. Not worth going back.

Ordered pine nut tuna salad -- the portion was not enough for a hungry sea gull to eat. They put 4 disc shaped pieces of lightly seared tuna (each double the diameter of a quarter) in a plate with a few pinches of greens. I couldn't believe it. And this took an hour to prepare! At a price of $16.00, it was undoubtedly not worth it. The quality of whatever food there was seemed pretty good. I did actually go out to a deli and get a sandwich after eating at the Blue Water Grill. Sorry Blue Water, but you won't be seeing me back there again.
