Kelly provided excellent professional service!!6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a recommendation!Only a few times in NYC and went to BWG on a recommendation from a local. Great looking place with fantastic service and top notch cuisine. Bailey took fabulous care of us. Appetizers are wonderful. Go often.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was good!!!!From the way they handled the reservation (we had to make a change) to the service and the attention once we got there plus the superb dining....everything was excellent!6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Brunch!We had a very nice brunch here on a Sunday. Service was excellent and Bloody Marys delicious. A basket of what seemed like pannetone and a carrot bread was brought right away. Two of us had classic Eggs Benedict and one had the egg white omelette. All very flavorful. The omelette was chuck full of fresh veggies. The only part of the meal none of us cared for we're the potatoes but maybe it was just us. The setting is exquisite on this old bank building. It was a great time overall. We'd certainly would return.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMDelightful BrunchBlue Water Grill is a favorite Union Square restaurant. This is the place we go to for great food and people watching! It was our first experience with the Saturday Brunch and it was delightful! The french toast was mouth watering! Adding our favorite spring rolls increased our enjoyment!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMFood Was Prepared Very WellEverything was tasty....the corn crab soup was very good and not too heavy. The Copper River Salmon was done perfectly, and the presentation was lovely, too. The veggies served with the salmon were a nice change from the ordinary -- heirloom tomatoes, leeks, potatoes. I would return. I did find the noise level a little too much for a business conversation, especially the later it became!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food and excellentDelicious food and excellent service. Very noisy which I don;t mind but some will. They knew it was my birthday even though no one told them. Talk about big brother!!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently high qualityWe have been to the Blue Water Grill many times over the years and they remain one of our absolute favorites. The quality of the food and the dining experience remains high, and the wait staff is always helpful and friendly.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat LunchI always have a great time when I eat here. My only dissapoinment was that I was looking for Crab Louie, and it was not on the menu. But I was able to combine other dishes to make a great meal.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Food--Very Slow KitchenEverything we ate at Blue Water grill was excellent. Wile the service was very friendly an dorfessional, the kitchen seemed to have a hard time keeping up. There were long delays between courses, that made a Monday night dinner run on too late.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWhenever in N.Y.C. , Atlantic GrillComing from Germany, it´a must for us to visit this wonderfull hot spot.
Thank you for a wonderfull evening

I just love the twist to the food..... can't wait for the next visit!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Experience!Jon, our server, was tremendous. He has an infectious personality and was completely engaged in insuring that our experience was a memorable one. The wild salmon and the blackened swordfish, coupled with a great Willamette Valley Pinot Grigio was one of the best dining experiences we've had in the city. The ambience on Union Square makes this an overall great dining experience and we will definitely be back the next time we are in New York.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMLovelyThe food and service outstanding. You can always depend on wonderful foods so artfully prepared. The service was excellent and they always go out of their way to make it special. Great staff. The hostess might have been more tactful. Not a very good first impression. The restaurant was a bit too hectic....too many graduations going on, perhaps a wedding too? We had to wait a half hour for our reservation
It as still a very elegant experience.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMDependably freshTHE place for seafood in Union Square!

Food is always fresh, good and the service never anything but prompt without being rushed. It's not the cheapest spot to eat at, if that's your need, but well priced for the amounts, service, and surety of freshness which is paramount in a seafood place.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Service, Great FoodIt has never been disappointing dining at Blue Water Grill. The ingredients are refreshing for the season and the food there is always pleasant.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMStill Going StrongI have been coming here for years and it never ever disappoints.

Food was outstanding and the waitress was very knowledgable and enthusiastic5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the individuals inOne of the individuals in our group does not eat seafood so I asked the waiter if he could have a steak. We had arrived at 3:00pm so the dinner menu was not yet available. The waiter did check and he indicated that they could accommodate the request for a steak.
You may want to offer another one or two options for those individuals who do not eat seafood. I realize that it is the Blue Water Grill, however when you have a larger group it provides an option for everyone.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was delicious.Everything was delicious.

It is my go to place for lunch in NYC, super atmosphere, heavenly food, great service, not to be missed in my view!! My favourites include the monster rolls, tuna tartare and shrimp tacos. I will undoubtably be back!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is my 5th time back atThis is my 5th time back at the Blue Water and I am never disappointed! One of my favorite New York restaurants for sure!!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThe music is overbearing andThe music is overbearing and detracts from an otherwise very pleasant experience.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently greatThe Blue Water Grill is a consistently a great place for lunch or dinner. Although a bit pricey, the food and service are impeccable. Always worth the visit!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMNice surpriseThis was my first venture to Blue Water Grill. Our waiter was most helpful. Service was good. My friend and I really enjoyed the food. I would go back.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperbWonderful meal, great food from bread to amazing chocolate chip cookies that must be eaten. If you enjoy seafood - you'll be a happy person. Staff is highly trained and talented. they are there to ensure you have a wonderful dinning experience and you will.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely lunch, stellar serviceI took my 82 year old mom and her friend (and my two kids, ages 8 & 6) here for lunch. This can be a challenge because my mom has many dietary issues and preferences. None of that was a challenge here. Blue Water Grill was lovely. The space is ambient and beautiful for a special occasion and the menu is varied. You can go totally decadent and order oysters and caviar or keep it simple with a lobster/shrimp roll.
The big stand out here is the top-notch staff and servers. Our server was so witty and lovely with us that my mother and her friend kept talking about taking him home.They were smitten. He made them feel special while visiting. It really set the tone for the whole day.
We will definitely be back.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent FoodFood was excellent, service was great. It was a lively atmosphere but not too loud. Looking forward to going again.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMSaturday night packed. NewSaturday night packed. New waitress not familiar with oyster selection. Food is always excellent!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMthe experience left my husbandthe experience left my husband and i in awe! great food!!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat restaurantGreat restaurant, food, service,ambience, except one thing. They served the appetizers and salads together. Not acceptable!!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMgood with some issuesI like this place and will come back. but the service continues to be much slower than necessary. It's shouldn't take ten minutes to get a cup of coffee or a drink. also, why is the coffee so terrible? spend some money and get a new blend and make it stronger- it is very subpar. much worse than the coffee i get from a midtown deli every day.
one other thing: servers, take off your sunglasses when indoors.
having said that the food is solid, the price is good and the service is friendly.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBest seafoodProbably the most I have ever paid at a restaurant but it was definitely worth every penny. Drinks were on point food was delicious, especially the appetizers. You have to try the lobster and shrimp springs rolls. Went there an hour before closing and didn't get to sit in the jazz section that I heard about but my girlfriend and I for sure will make reservations again at an earlier time.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat night outWent after seeing Jersey Boys matinee. A perfect ending to a great day. Made a reservation and we were seated immediately. The place was very busy but we were not rushed at all. Fried calamari was the best I ever tasted and I have tasted a lot! Oysters were outstanding! We sat in the upper level which to me is the place to be. Blue Water Grill was recommended to me by a few people. After my visit there I have recommended it to a few people already, I can't wait to go back again myself.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for jazz lovers and foodies.Even though we had reservations we still had to wait for about 20 min to be seated cause the place was packed. Well, that's Friday night for ya. We got a table for two downstairs right next to the jazz band which actually worked out for the best. Watching those guys play was amazing and enhanced the whole dining experience for us.
The food was delicious beyond words, and that goes for both seafood and steak. Probably the best steak I've tried in a mostly seafood restaurant (not a Steakhouse).
Overall, a great place for a date night (if you don't mind the noise and loud music) or going out with a group of friends and, of course for jazz lovers.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
