  • Great seafood tower
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 10/18/2014
    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.

    Drinks: wife ordered Vodka Tonic, got a vodka COKE; was replaced easily and pleasantly. Appetizers: Ordered Salt & pepper Calamari; WAY too salty. Also got a shrimp appetizer and it was 1 of only 2 good dish we had. MAIN COURSE: Grilled salmon & potatoes; overcooked and flavorless; the potatoes that came with the shrimp dish were much better than the ones with the salmon. Wife ordered Ahi Tuna, said it was not very good, she also ordered lobster bisque that she said was good and had large pieces of lobster in it. Overall disappointed, the smallest portions of our meal were the best parts. Waitress was an older woman, she was pleasant and helpful but not the over the top services you expect when spending over $150 on dinner for 2.

    I must say that overall the experience at Blue point was excellent. Champagne by the glass! Fabulous red wine. The scallop appetizer was fresh and delicious, tuna tartare appetizer incredible. fresh. Evelyn was our server and she was GREAT. The only minor detail was that the snapper of the evening was slightly overbaked, which, to me, made it a bit dry. Having said that, shortly after I began eating it, a gentleman came over(unsolicited), asked me how everything was, I said it was 'fine' but he noted a slight and it was ever so slight) hesitation, and pushed me to find out what was wrong. When he found out he had another piece of snapper cooked up in no time. I was much appreciative and for that this place receives top stars in my book.

    Dined on 9/23/2014
    On the recommendation of a friend, I decided to give Blue Point a try. It did not dissapoint. The service was wonderful. The atmosphere was casual, but formal enough to have a high end feel. And the food...terrific. I have a love-hate relationship with scallops. When cooked correctly, I love them. And this was LOVE. The grilled scallops were some of the best I have had. Period. The ONLY negative is there are not many options for people who don't like seafood. I think they could expand that portion of their menu a bit. Bottom line: If you are looking for a great seafood experience that is not on either coast, I am comfortable in saying the Blue Point is well worth the time and the price for a great seafood experience.

This will always be one of my top choices for great food.

    We were here for an anniversary celebration. All in all we had a great time. The cocktails and most of the food was very good except for the oysters Rockefeller oysters themselves were very plump but the seasoning and topping was awful. Absolutely no taste and very dry. I would not order them again unless the recipe is changed. I've seen recipes for them and these tasted nothing like it. I ordered lobster bolognese and my husband had walleye both of which were very good. The calamari was also very good. Please do something to improve the oysters Thank you.

    We celebrated our anniversary at Blue Point Grille. It was a perfect evening, from the exceptional friendly staff at the front desk and the service to the delicious food and drinks. We started with cocktails, had oysters (best ever!) and sashimi as appetizer, grouper and tuna as entree, and we closed our dinner with cheese selection and ice wine. Every dish was cooked to perfection. Our table was on the second floor, overlooking the restaurant which made the evening even more special. Thanks to the entire Blue Point Grill team for supplementing our 3rd anniversary with such an outstanding dining experience!

    I had a disturbing experience on my last visit to Blue Point Grille. When I commented to one of the managers about our long wait to be seated, even after having a reservation, he was very rude and flippant in his response to my feedback. It wasn't the type of interaction to feedback, that he asked for, that would be expected at a restaurant of that caliber.

    We have frequented Blue Pointe Grill several times and have always enjoyed the quality of the food preparation until now. The lobster and shrimp were overcooked, the butter sauce was extremely limited causing the lobster to also be dry. (It is usually drizzled over the tail). The service was still excellent, but the food was not.
