    My husband and I had the Sunday Seafood Feast and all the seafood was perfectly cooked. The seafood boil seasoning was just right, not too much but you could really taste it. Food was very good but the service was outstanding. Attentive without being intrusive, our server saw us struggling with a too hard semifreddo and immediately offered to replace the dessert with another offering. We will definitely come back

    Well worth the drive from Temecula to San Diego for the evening. Food and service was great! Only thing that was a little disappointment was they allowed VERY casual dress code in the restaurant on a Saturday night and the website stated DRESSY. Had we known that, we would have gone casual and spent more time walking in the city after dinner.

    The Salmon was melt in your mouth but the grits it was served over was awful and didn't compliment the fish at all. I couldn't even remotely taste the bacon that was supposed to be in it. The Crab Crusted Halibut was a total disappointment. The crab was simply a pile on top of the fish and the Halibut was so dry I would have sent it back but my husband put up with it. We told the manager, he apologized but did nothing. The lobster bisque was very good but it was cold. The service was wonderful, our waitress was exceptional. But at $48 for a dish of dry Halibut...I won't return.

    Wow, it was hard to focus with so much going on around us. This restaurant is in the center of the Gaslamp District and the streets were crazy with people having fun and enjoying the night. I recommend eating outside to get the flavor of the neighborhood, and certainly the flavor of the food. The meal was excellent, and the service was top notch. Great location, great service and outstanding food mad for a very memorable dining experience. I recommend this to everyone, but if you want a quiet dinner you should go inside.

    Several of my friends recommended Blue Point and we wanted to try something differed than our usual Oceannaire. Service was great and so was the quality of the food. However, we were disappointed with the lack of flavor. They lacked pizazz or that little something extra. The menu selection was smaller than I expected. Definitely won't return despite the good service. I guess it's hard to beat Oceannaire.

    Blue Point lives up to my SF Bay Area foodie expectations. It's a grown up restaurant in San Diego's gaslight. The interior, comfort, service and the food! It's beautifully prepared. Fresh and colorful and so delicious. I would buy the romesco sauce from my scallop dish by the gallon. From the unexpected tuna tartare served 1st, to our gazpacho and bisque, to our our entrees and desserts, it's the best I've had in this town. And I'm here every few months for business. I'll be back. It's evident they care.

    We had a wonderful meal - with outstanding professional service and delicious food and wine. All of us had different fish dishes and each was exquisitely plated. My dish was perfectly cooked trout fillet with lemon risotto and a side of baby greens with just the right garnish of tart and sweet fruits. I started with the lobster bisque - really good. Our desert platter was a special treat - the creme brulee, hot chocolate cake with ice cream, fruit tart - all were beautiful. We wanted a reasonably quiet table and the large booth made it possible to have lively conversation with friends, which I also consider an important consideration for a pleasant dinner experience.

    I haven't been to Blue Point for quite awhile. I shouldn't have waited so long. The service was awesome - Our main server was supported another server so everything came out quickly and any need we had was taken care of right away. We ordered scallops, salmon, and filet mignon ravioli. All of it was so delicious! I won't wait so long to go back next time.

    I started with a wonderful drink called the French Elder. For an appetizer, we had the calamari. It was not the best calamar that I've had, but it was good. I had the sable fish, which was wonderful! My husband ordered the cheesecake for dessert...very good ending to a great meal. I would definitely return.

    Two things you should know.... The seafood is excellent, but is not local, expect somewhat exotic and eclectic options... And as superior as both the restaurant and it's offerings are, it is a bit overpriced, but of course San Diego in the summer is a resort and escape town, plus this restaurant is in the heart of this Gaslight District! The sashimi cuts were very good, the halibut and Thai dark fish were delights in taste and presentation. The wine list is excellent and extensive. Service was superior. If you're looking for a great meal and perfect service in a great location you can't miss at Blue Point Coastal Cuisine.

    It was my honey's birthday, and we had a grand time. Seated near the front so we could enjoy the view up and down 5th, and interact with the hostess and wait staff. We had a really grand time, and it is a birthday my honey won't soon forget. We had two signature cocktails we had not experienced, a wonderful appetizer and a great dinner. Service was really good and we appreciated our waiter $ignificantly. Easy to find and easy to catch a cab back to the hotel. We will come again next year.

    My wife and I took another couple to dinner and theater as a thank you. We had known of the Kohn Family restaurants, dine at several, and choose this one due to the location and the reviews. We were greeted warmly and taken directly to our outside table. The service was prompt but not overbearing. The food was all I expected from the Kohn family, and the wine selection was very good. We enjoyed dinning at our sidewalk table with the activity of the street scene keeping the evening lively. An unexpected treat was a twosome of jazz musicians playing across the street which added to our incredible dinning experience.

    I think it's fair not to have high expectation when you walk in to any restaurant nowadays, obviously from the others reviews, everybody's experience is different when it comes to food and service, unfortunately ours were more negative than positive, although the service was nice, the food was disappointing when it came to taste and texture, but the worst thing about the whole restaurant is the awful smell when you walk by the kitchen on your way to the bathroom, they should do something about that, I wish I remember our waiter's name, but he was really nice and attentive.

    We really love Blue Point. It's one of the those places you just can't go wrong with. The only criticism would be the price. The cost is the same as Eddy V's or Cowboy Star, and I'm not so sure the food, while very, very good, is up to those standards. We do enjoy the old school dinner house feel and will always go back. The martini's are especially good and may be why the bill is so high:)

    This is our new favorite for special occasions. From the moment we arrived, we were treated as though we were special guests. We were celebrating our son's 21st birthday, and we'll all remember the excellent service and the outstanding dishes and drinks. When we made our reservation we stated we have a guest with peanut allergy, and one with cinnamon allergy. Our server was already prepared for that, so she told us about the two or three dishes to avoid....that left us with many options. We all enjoyed tasting each other's choices. Can't wait to go again!

    For our first visit to San Diego, we were on business and looking for a really good restaurant near our hotel. Blue Coast came highly recommended on Open Table and did not disappoint. West Coast oysters were in need of NO enhancement, fresh, sweet and briny. My husband had the yellowfin with soba noodles and I had the sablefish (apparently butterfish? on the East Coast), both of which were delicious. The decor is deep red, leather banquettes, very comfortable. And the service was excellent. I hope there's another San Diego trip in my future.

    Blue Point should be ashamed of themselves! First off, I came in on Friday at 5:30 for my reservation and there were 3 blonde girls standing at the hostess stand. No greeting, no hello, just staring as if I was a bother. I told them I had a reservation and was escorted to my seat of choice outside. Hostess walks away. Server comes up and asks for our drink order. I asked for the HH menu and the server seemed rather annoyed that we were ordering HH. I got my wine and it smelled like a dirty dish rag in the glass. I informed the server and they brought another glass of wine. Food came out and was terrible from the filet mignon ravioli to the caprese salad to the dumplings. All was really bad. No flavor and the ravioli was hard throughout.
