  • Anniversary Night
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/15/2014
    While staying downtown @Aloft for our 21st anniversary made plans to dine here. Nick(server) was attentive, surprised my wife w/location after reviewing several downtown menu's. Everything was excellent considering crowded due to restaurant week. Wine list is huge, enjoyed "Blue Point Heaven" w/lobster mashed potatoes and Salmon w/blue crab/lemon risotto(not too much crab though?). We also ordered calamari(lighter crispy coating) and seared scallops apps. Also enjoyed the crème brulee and salted sea caramel over pineapple(w/dessert wine combo) for dessert. Would love to visit here during summer months and also try the Lobster Bisque recommended by a co-worker who ate here. If you enjoy seafood this is the place to go(they also have certified angus beef selections)

  • 2014 Cleveland Restaurant Week
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 11/15/2014
    This was the 2nd restaurant we tried in the Hospitality Restaurant group for this year's "Restaurant Week". It turned out to be a great experience, plus the special menu choices were all good. Two from our group had the salmon entrée, one had the beef entrée, and one had the shrimp entrée. Even though Blue Point is known for seafood, their meat dishes are also excellent. It was a very busy Saturday night, but that fact did not affect the service. All in all it was a wonderful evening, and I would definitely recommend the Blue Point to others for a great night out.

    Had a relaxing dinner at Blue Point this week. Wait staff extremely attentive. When food arrived , one of my guests asked the server if the good served was what she ordered. Turned out the kitchen had sent out the wrong meal. They offered to remake it which my guest refused. Instead a plate full of yummy desserts were served to us at the conclusion if our meal. Then 24 hours later I received a call from the restaurant to apologize and to make sure my group had a good experience. The person who called new the specifics and was very concerned about the error made. Extremely friendly !! I would definitely take a large group back to Blue Point.

    I have not been to Blue Point for dinner in years, the food was amazing. Everything was cooked perfectly. Items sounded simple but were very complex. My only complaint was that the risotto lacked salt and did not deliver the flavor from the description. But everything else was cooked perfectly, tasted amazing, and reminded me of why I need to go back here again!

    Enjoyed the varity of the Menu unlike other places such as the Red with limited menu for the three course restaurant week. The wine and desert were amazing We have some dieters restriction and were not allowed to substitute. The wedge salad was very generic without any additives , same with the Bisque without Gorgonzola.

    I had the tomato bisque to begin my meal. It was delicious. The salty, flavorful gorgonzola cheese crumbled on top was a nice contrast to the creamy, sweet flavor of the soup. The croutons added a nice crunch. I also enjoyed the swordfish which was simply prepared with a dry rub. The asparagus were perfectly cooked and offset by a light lemon butter sauce. The potatoes were disappointing. They didn't taste fresh and were overcooked. Perhaps whole, baby, red-skinned potatoes boiled and then sautéed lightly with fresh herbs would be a better accompaniment. Our service was outstanding and we received our meals quickly. We loved the ambiance of this elegant restaurant with its high ceilings and large windows that framed the cityscape.

    We had a great time with some of the best food we had in Cleveland and with a beautiful downtown view by the window. I got the surf and turf and my wife got the stuffed crab. Both were ideally cooked and presented. I highly recommend the lobster mashed potatoes. Its a little more, but totally worth it. Great desert and cappuccinos as well. You can't miss! Everything is a winner here.

    We shared a seafood tower appetizer along with four hot appetizers (Calimari, Scallops) with another couple on a Saturday night. Our first time visiting, but we will be back! Our waiter was outstanding- attentive at just the right times, but not hovering and had great suggestions. We had some cocktails too, and the Kiss me Goodnight was delicious! The ambiance is very upscale- downtown contemporary. Next time we will try a main entree- it was all just perfect.

    I chose Blue point based on being here only once before and remembering the food as being excellent. At the end of this experience I felt bad for my parents and fiancé (who were with me) for having chose the place. My dad wanted the King crab special, which they happened to be out of. I had the pan seared grouper with lobster mashed potatoes. The entire dish tasted like it was drowned in butter and was almost not edible. My fiancé chose the blackened swordfish, which he said was so salty he couldn't even finish half of. My parents were only mildly satisfied with their lobster tails and crab. The best part was the creme brûlée dessert. Based on this experience, I'm sad to say I would probably never return to Blue Point again.

    Waiter was horrible. With attitude, got wrong order and then show attitude. She got us a drink 40 min after we got a table. our first appetizer we got 1:10min after we got a table. I order grill grouper, she bring us blackened grouper. It was so spicy, neither my husband or I was able to eat it. Nobody ask us if we want at list a free coffee or dessert for waiting so long and for bringing us a wrong meal.
