Blue Point Restaurant - Wayzata
I really can't think of anythingI really can't think of anything that disappointed me at all. Our server has a pro delivering the courses at the exact time without an overlap. The food was beyond our expectation. A great overall dining experience.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMService TIcked DownWe eat at this wonderful local spot regularly, but this time we waited a long time between courses. The food was great though as usual.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWe hadn't even consideredWe hadn't even considered going to this place, but had a gift card and were pleasantly surprised by everything. The food was great--plenty of fish and shellfish selections with great side dish pairings. I thought the restaurant had a comfortable up-to-date supper club feel to it. We'll definitely be going back.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMReliable Favorite for SeafoodBlue Point is our 'destination restaurant' for fine sea food dining. Has been for years. It never disappoints! The original menu presentation of selecting one's fish of choice and the preparation has been modified to include vegetables, sauces, etc., in the dish. All is no longer a la carte. Very nice!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe only issue we had wasThe only issue we had was that the entire hardwood floor where we sat would shake, rattling the entire table, which was an annoyance. Food was great!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAfter dining at Blue PointAfter dining at Blue Point with a VP and 5 Director Level Execs - I've got to say - FANTASTIC! The restaurant was able to fill my request for a private/quieter space and although we were directly across from the busy bar, the noise level was enthusiastic, not over powering! The service from our waiter was superb and the food was outstanding! This made quite an impression on my executive team and I am certain, as the departmental administrator, I will be recommending Blue Point over and over again! Excellent!4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMHaving moved from the twinHaving moved from the twin cities 18 years ago, we don't get to go to places we used to frequent very often. It was great to see that nothing has changed at The Blue Point. Excellent food and service.
Thank you4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMBooked a spot on Open TableBooked a spot on Open Table for a same day meal. Sent a note that we were celebrating a birthday and staff was aware and ready for that event. Food was great. Descriptions of dishes matched how they were presented and tasted. Our favorite spot in wayzata, MN for a number of years!4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMI had the duck and scallops.I had the duck and scallops. The duck was not very tender. The oysters were very good!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWestSiderWe had the clam chowder and an order of mussels for appetizers. Chowder was a delightful creamy dish and there were enough mussels for four people.
The duck and scallops entre was a fantastic blend of flavors. Both were tender and the scallops were very sweet. Blackened swordfish was recommended and after a few bites it was clear why it was one of our servers favorite dishes.
We were early with a 6:30pm reservation on Saturday. Very quiet and only a few occupied tables, but by the time we left all the tables were filled yet the noise level was acceptable. Nice neighborhood bar which is too small for the restaurant and gets very crowded, but one of the best martinis in the TC. Good selection on the wine list, too.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Meal!Even though we go to Wayzata frequently, we've never eaten at Blue Point. We finally did and we're just sorry we didn't try it sooner! The meal was excellent and so was the service. My husband had mussels, and then the scallops and duck breast entree, which was delicious. I had Maryland crab cakes & swordfish, both of which were excellent. The restaurant was packed on a Friday night but our reservation was honored immediately. We had a small table, kind of crowded into the wall, but the restaurant was so busy, there wasn't much else they could do.
Blue Point is not the kind of restaurant you'd go to for peace and quiet but if you want excellent food, delicious deserts and fair wine prices, we would highly recommend. We will be back!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a good bet!As usual Blue Point was very good. Fish was very fresh and presented very well. Salads were very good, the pear apple salad is awesome. Our party ordered the grouper, salmon, and ahi tuna. Everyone really enjoyed their meals. Dessert was awesome as well, the sticky cake is amazing! Service was very good.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Seafood in the CitiesLike being transported to a New England seafood restaurant. Ambience is wonderful, classy. Energetic from a noise stand point. However, there is no piped in music in the dining rooms so, even when it's full, you can talk and hear each other easily without yelling. Classy surroundings. Excellent food to match. Steamed mussels as an appetizer could have been an entire meal...and tasty. Grilled Salmon was fantastic as were the Scallops. Service is attentive. Ask for a table in the main dining room. My only small complaint was the $18 charge for a Tallisker Scotch...although it was an extremely generous pour.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
