Diner Reviews
  • "Wonderful menu with great variety. Had a business meeting. Quiet but upbeat environment. New menu from my last lunch. Impressive."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "We eat out often at high end restaurants. We expected a much better meal at Blue Point. Compared to some of our favorite restaurants, Blue Point didn't come close. We had lobster and salmon. Both meals were just okay - expensive for the quality and presentation. The waitress spilled water and left over melted butter on my plate. I had eaten about half my meal. I was given another small portion of salmon, but potatoes and veggies were not replaced. The restaurant was quiet for 7:00 pm, that should have given us a clue as to its popularity. We will not return."

  • "The food was great once we got it. Two servings of crab cakes and a bowl of soup had to be sent back because they were lukewarm. Not good."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Food and service were very good. However it was more expensive than we anticipated, it was listed as "$$" but realistically should be "$$$""

  • "We've never been disappointed here. A great hidden gem on the north frontage road of 494 just beyond France."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Made a reservation and with plenty of other seats, everyone seemed to be seated along a bank of booths next to kitchen. Kitchen noise made conversation difficult. Had a seafood stew. While flavorful, I wouldn't say it was spicy given claim of server. Serving was small considering price and mussels were minute. Glad I didn't order the bowl of mussels. I haven't been to Wayzata location in awhile but I had very good meals there. This was disappointing even though I was hoping to frequent this location. Service was attentive."

  • "Was really excited to try this place out. Overall the food was good and the service even better. However, for the price, the food should be of a much higher caliber."

  • "Blue Point is a consistently good restaurant. They cook their fish very well and the restaurant appears clean. A great lunch spot, I will need to try it for dinner."
    Dined on 5/29/2014
  • "The food is very fresh and quite good and the service was, by and large, pretty good. We had to wait a while for someone to come to our table, and she didn't stop by very often, but overall it was just fine. Our biggest disappointment was how empty the restaurant was on a Friday night. At most, 1/4 of the tables were filled for a 7 p.m. reservation. There wasn't much vibe here and that detracted from our experience."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "We had an excellent dinner with a respectful waiter who did not interrupt us as we were talking business. The service was efficient and the food and beverages were very good. This is the third time I have been there and each time has been a very consistent experience. The fish is outstanding and the pairings with each meal were very tasty. "

  • "Enjoyed several seafood items:oysters Rockefeller,claim chowder(delicious with noteable sherry flavor),Halibut on pureed yams as well as some great vodka martinis. Bread was made on site and was just like homemade -raisin rye and white !!All items were well presented and tasty.Reasonable portions and price seemed about right."

  • "We enjoyed an excellent quiet mother's day dinner at Blue Point in Bloomington. Mussels were excellent. Server was relaxed, pleasant and knowledgeable. Food was excellent and arrived quickly. Very good wine selections. Moderate priced entrees. Quiet atmosphere made conversation easy and spacing of tables kept it private as well. Overall very nice."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "I had heard nothing but good stuff about this restaurant and they did not fail to meet every standard. My wife and in-laws are very knowledgeable when it comes to wine and thought this was one of the most diverse wine lists in the Twin Cities. Would definitively return for any occasion. "
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "I did not know about the Saturday night special so I was surprised and delighted. We loved it and will go back often even though it is a drive of 25 minutes for us. Worth it!"

  • "First time here. Bar was fun and very inviting. Bar tender was cool and quite chatty. He picked a great Chardonnay for me! Dinner was quote good. Selection was just right. Was a little pricey, but overall the experience met my expectations. Blue Point is on my top five list."

  • "Went to resturant to celebrate my wife's B-day with my family. Service was great, but the food was lacking any excitement. Had the lobster, which was ok, but had much better elsewhere. Wife's and girls dinner was just so, so. I wouldn't go back for high cost and limited experience."

  • "My husband & I have been to the Wayzata location many times, but this was our first time to Bloomington. The food was great, as was the service. The noise level was probably more energetic than usual, due to the championship hockey game (and since my husband wanted to sit in the bar area to watch the game). We will definitely dine here again."

  • "This was my first visit to Blue Point and would certainly return again. Went for an early dinner so the bar area was empty and fewer than ten other tables full. Very low noise level. Service was very good and the meals matched. Though I enjoyed my monk fish, I enjoyed my wife's swordfish even more. Excellent reason to return."

  • "My wife and don't dine out regularly, but we do like to try different resteraunts. I saw the ad for Blue Point in the newspaper and knowing that my mother loves lobster, decided to treat her to a night out. Our server who's name was Correy, was outstanding. She was very helpful with the wine list, and she never seemed to be rushed. She took time to explain the menu andante suggestions, answered all of our questions. She made it a very enjoyable dining experience! We will definatly be back!"

  • "We visited Blue Point to celebrate a birthday. The "birthday boy" was in the mood for oysters and steak. Blue Point delivered and the service was tremendous. We'd recommend Blue Point for anyone seeking seafood in the Edina/Bloomington area. The office complex ambience isn't great, but the restaurant/bar iteself is nice. Again, the food is very good and the service is excellent."

  • "This place isn't always busy, but the food and service are always good. More people should take the time to find it."

  • "This is a great place to meet clients for lunch. Food and service are great and you can actually hear your lunch partner without the ambient noise you find in other business lunch places in south metro."
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "Service was barely acceptable. My meal: bacon wrapped cod with braised greens and citronette. Cod was good. Bacon was nearly raw and there was prep paper still on it. braised greens makes one think of spinach, kale, chard etc. What I got was lettuce. I kid you not- I got hot, cooked LETTUCE! Also, the dish was drowned in salt. I tried to eat it but it actually 'salt-burned' my tongue so badly it was hard to taste anything else. They offered us a dessert because of the paper issue and we ordered the 'fresh' bread pudding with raspberry mousse. We got a frozen lump of bread goo with no raspberry mousse. Sent it back and passed on their offer to replace it. My husband had the fish with mole as well as the clam chowder and liked them both."

  • "Blue Point never disappoints. Being stuck in Las Vegas alone on Valentine's Day night I needed to make up with a nice dinner out the day after. Scallops and Tuna were perfectly prepared. Wine list is one of the best in the SW metro. By the glass options include some real winners like a Rombauer and a Miner chardonnay. Seems like you can always get a table at the Bloomington location. Great service too. The only possible knock is that it is in an office building, but who cares. Food is great!"
