Blue Water Grill
Posted by ushaholdings on 10/11/2007
I went to Blue water last night and it was great. We wanted to get in and have some main course and wine and leave, but the host told us the fish would take 20-25 min to cook. So we ordered the crispy oysters and the calamari. Both were great and the spicy mayo with the calamari is good. I had the Black Dur (like halibut) which was soft and juicy and served over some lobster rissotto. The desserts are good but skip the port and get some coffee or cognac.

me and my boyfriend try new restaraunts every weekend so one weekend we ended up goin to this one...first, the waitress made us feel like she's doing us a favor and that we are taking up her time and I felt a little rushed...because we did come when it was fairly busy during lunchtime, but still u shouldn't make me feel like I should speed up and finish...2nd the food is way to expensive for what it really is...i don't mind paying 36 for fish but has to be made is a special way or have something unordinary about it...the size of my sea bass was about the size of a sugar cube...no I mean literally...and my boyfriends tuna was the same size...moral of story please do not go and waste your money on something not even worth it...youre better off walking a little further to the house.

After months of walking past after trips to the farmers market, my finance and I finally decided to try the highly acclaimed Blue Water Grill. The restaurant ABSOLUTELY lived up to it's reputation. We started off with the lobster sliders, which were delicious. For the main course I had the Chilean Sea Bass and my finance had the Blackened Tuna. Both dishes were excellent. Because I had told them that we were celebrating a birthday, the waiter brought complimentary champagne, chocolate fondue, and a cookie platter. The restaurant is certainly expensive, but worth every penny.

My boyfriend and I schedules reservations to go to Blue Water Grill on a Saturday, 2 weeks in advance, because we had read great reviews about the place. We were walking through Union Square the weekend before and decided to have brunch there. On the plus side we got a table outside immediately. On the downside the food was very bland. I ordered a shrimp salad and he ordered crabcake eggs benedict. I love crab cake eggs bendict but his was the first one that I had that I didn't enjoy. My shrimp in my salad were extremely fishy and the chopped eggs that were in the salad were wet-like they had been washed. The flavor of the the salad did not mix well with me. Needless to say, we cancelled our reservation for the following weekend, and will not return. We love their sister restaurant Atlantic Grill and we have dined there 3 times this year.

Lunch here, I'm afraid, was expensive and mediocre. Some of the greens in the designer salad resembled algae--black and slimy. The crab cakes were salty and sodden in texture. The maki roll was gloppy because the shrimp came in a creamy sauce so that its freshness and contrast with the other ingredients didn't stand out. And then at the end of the meal, we were presented not just with our bill but with a request that we complete a questionnaire detailing our feelings about our meal. The reward for doing this work? We'd have the privilege of receiving special promotions for the restaurant and others owned by the chain. Uh, no thanks. Won't return--much too corporate and I didn't feel they took any pride in their food.

I've been to many amazing seafood places all over the world but this place is right at the top of the list. I've been here twice with different groups of people and both times I've had a great experience. The staff was attentive, knowledgeable, and suggested wines I would have never picked out but turned out to be incredible. I had the crab cake and sea bass my first time there and both were delicious. The second time I had the shrimp spring roll and halibut. The halibut was probably one of the best fish entrees I've ever had. My friends ordered a variety of dishes all of which were excellent including great sushi. Even my friend who is a vegan had a great meal here. I entirely recommend this restaurant.

I dine out constantly in NYC. This place is bar-none, the BEST sea food in the city. Every single thing I've ever ordered here is a phenomenon on the palate. No one I've ever eaten w/ has been disappointed (I've probably eaten here between 15 and 20 times). To the people who complain about the price - welcome to top NYC cuisine. You should pay top dollar for the best food in the world, so quit complaining. Hands down, make a reservation. You will NOT regret it.
