Great Fresh SeafoodWe were both in the mood for some fresh seafood & Bluestone came through in a big way. The calamari appetizer won't win any innovation awards, but it was crisp, lightly floured and the sauce works. My stuffed swordfish was very nice- moist and tasty. Her Catalan Sea Scallops were super fresh, nicely seared & a generous portion. The only quibble was that the kitchen had been a bit heavy handed with the salt on this one. A reasonable wine list and considerate service- we had an enjoyable visit.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat placeBluestone was a great discovery. The food was wonderful and our waiter couldn't have been more accommodating. He went out of his way to make sure we were pleased. And the space is quite beautiful and energetic. The only problem for my husband and I are that we are a bit older and it was so noisy that we felt we had to shout to communicate with the other couple we were with. I'd definitely go back again!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat crabI have had crab in many places over the years, but they were all a prelude to the crab I had the other night. No filler, no stuffing, nothing by pure chunks of crab meat. A beautiful, elegant place with really good food. This restaurant was a real find for this Minnesota boy.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Find in TimoniumSaw this restaurant online and it was recommended for a reason. Energetic wait staff, delicious food for good prices. Great setting inside the restaurant. Already have recommended it to friends and family6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Food In A Noisy AtmosphereOn our last visit to Bluestone, we dined alone celebrating our wedding anniversary. We are partial to Chilean Sea Bass, and we each had that for an entree. For an appetizer, we had the fried green tomatoes and tenderloin carpaccio. I also enjoyed a small Bluestone salad which has mixed greens, candied pecans, grape tomatoes, warm, brown-sugar coated bacon, and a honey-mustard vinaigrette. All of the food was seasoned nicely, arrived hot, and was very tasty and fresh. Our server and wait staff were courteous and attentive. We finished by sharing a warm "blondie" with vanilla ice cream drizzled with chocolate syrup and topped with whipped cream.
We had a good dining experience, marred only by the noise level in the restaurant.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMLived up to expectationsLoved every delicious bite of food. It was difficult to make a selection as so many menu items sounded appealing. I had the tuna (delicate and yummy). I shared with a friend who had the scallops (wonderfully seasoned-very innovate) The third in our party had the salmon and was very happy. Oh My! Can't forget we shared the pizza so beautifully prepared. The crust was very crispy and light with delicious yellow and red tomatoes thinly sliced sitting on top of the gently melted mozzarella and Parmesan, then a ribbon of pesto strategically placed to make the dish the perfect choice to whet your appetite. We really had a lovely dinner with perfect non-intrusive service that met our every need. Thank you, we will return6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFABULOUSExtraordinary foods and fabulous service....always!6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Food & AmbianceGreat place to connect with Friends to enjoy a nice atmosphere, good food, service. Love the 1/2 Wine and Aps specials!6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMA FavBlue Stone is one of my favorite places to go and eat. The food and service is always just right. I took a friend from out of town and she loved it. It made a good impression and we will definitiely be back.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMnite at bluestonesWe had a business dinner wiht an out of town physician and took him there because we all like fish. As usual the food was superb and the evening was nice. Our waiter was adequate but forgot several items and did not check on our group after we were served. Still you go for the food as the service is sometimes a bit spotty.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGood timeBluestone offers lite fare in addition to pricier entrees. Food was delicious. Good service.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGood lunch, great serviceWe met friends here for lunch and were very pleased. My husband had a huge soft crab sandwich. I had the Bluestone Salad, which is always delicious. Our friends were also pleased with the tomato mozzarella salad and the fish taco. Nice wine list and the waitress let us sample a wine we were unfamiliar with. Our waitress was there when we needed her, but also let us relax and enjoy our visit together.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat placeI have zero complaints about this place. The atmosphere was excellent as well as the service. We had the sangria which was fresh and so tasty. The whole table ordered some sort of seafood, all tasting excellent and great portion sizes. The crab cakes had so much crab meat in them - a rarity, I find. This was an excellent choice of a restaurant for a celebration dinner5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat time at BluestoneCelebrated my college graduation here with my family. I found the restaurant on a list of notable places to try in Timonium, MD and everyone in my family loved it. Our server was attentive and so friendly. I would definitely love to go back anytime!5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyableNice time. Service was good. Food took a bit longer to arrive, but the beverages made up for it!5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMBluestone never disappointsI have never had a bad meal at Bluestone. The food and service, as usual, were excellent.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWedding AnniversaryOverall 4 Star's. Made reservations for anniversary. No acknowledgement at all by restaurant. Wasn't looking for anything special but sometype of acknowledgement would have been great.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThree for $33?!?We came on a Sunday to celebrate my mom's birthday so we took advantage of the Three for $33 menu. Everything was wonderful! The soups were pipping hot and full of crab meat, and the salad was fresh and delicious. Everyone ordered some combination of surf or turf and everything came out beautiful and well cooked. Incredible fish, crab cakes to die for and fillet cooked just to order. Hard to leave from for the included dessert! We will definitely be back.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat findThis restaurant was chosen because it got high ratings on yelp and it was a fantastic find! The waiters were professional and courteous and the food was divine! My husband and I each got the 33$ Sunday special and were very pleased with the choices available and the quality of the food. We loved the house made sangria and our 12-year anniversary dinner couldn't have been any better!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMSoft CrabsI had great soft crab dinner.
The noise level is high in the bar area but not on the porch. P5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMOur favorite!My girlfriend and I eat here several times a year and the good is always on point. The fish is always delicious and the fried green tomatoes are awesome! So is the salad with the goat cheese- yum! We always request to sit with the server named Zach; he provides great service and is fun to chat with! We have eaten here for special
occasions and the staff always does something extra to make it even more special!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMgood service, great foodNice quiet dining on the enclosed terrace. Half-price wine by the glass was a nice treat on a Thursday evening. Everyone enjoyed their meals, from fresh fish, seafood stew and crabcakes to a burger. Relaxed environment for our family gathering!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGirls Night OutSeveral friends - all now retired teachers at the same Baltimore County schools- get together about every 6 weeks for an early dinner and catch-up session. One of our favorite spots is Bluestone. Whether there are only 4 of us or the entire gang of 8 we're always well served, enjoy the good food and/or wine deals and are left to chat to our hearts' content- never rushed to hurry up an leave.
Thanks for all the enjoyable evenings we've spent at Bluestone.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing foodThe food is amazing and they use quality ingredients. The cream of crab soup is, by far, the best.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMChopped Italian salad disappointingI was amazed to see the difference in both presentation and amount of salad. It shrunk by 50%!5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's DayTypically I don't care for restaurants on special occasions because the quality of food and service goes down - they are too busy. But Bluestone did a great job on Mother's Day. Our food was excellent, the service was good and we got our reserved table right away. It was a tad chilly, but they did turn down the AC for us.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMothers Day gemMy mother and i loved the terrace room and we both enjoyed our meal. Service was great. We will surely return again5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day TreatMy husband and mom really enjoyed the experience I call Bluestone. I'm glad I chose this place for such a special day5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious and beautifulMy sister and I took my mother out to dinner for Mother's Day and we were all very satisfied and agreed we'd love to come back. Since it was Mother's Day, things were a bit hectic it seemed (our food took a little while to come) but once it arrived everything was delicious! Thank you!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently good food andConsistently good food and service. A dependable favorite.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother'Day at the BluestoneI was impressed by the size of the building and the many choices of dining rooms. The food was magnificent and the portion sizes were appropriate. We thoroughly enjoyed the dessert which was ample enough to share.
The service was a bit slow and remiss. The waitress failed to present the specials and did not bring bread to the table. She was also slow in responding to our needs. The place was very busy and she seemed to have more tables than she needed. I hope this was a one time occurence. Over,all we were very pleased. It was our first time dining at the Bluestone, but it will not be our last and we will share this gem with our friends.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat seafoodI had a major new seafood find last Saturday. My first ever taste of Greek Bronzini (aka Mediterrean Sea Bass was absolutely fabulous especially due to the chefs preparation. Thanks for a great new experience. My spouses crab cakes were great as usual5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat foodGreat food - the fresh seafood is fantastic but you need to have patience for the wait service. As long as you are not in a hurry, this is the place for great seafood and nice ambience.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent seafoodWe have dined at Bluestone numerous times over the years, often for special occasions or with out-of-town visitors, and the seafood here has always been delicious and well-prepared and presented. The Hothouse tomato and cucumber salad was excellent, and the crab-stuffed swordfish, superb. My wife found the mahi-mahi a bit spicy but otherwise delicious. Her brother and his wife, visiting from out-of-town, loved the crab cakes in their surf & turf combinations, and found the filet of beef well-prepared also.
The wine, a German Riesling, was a bit pricey, but a good accompaniment for the seafood. Our table was near the bar area, which was loud enough to make conversation a bit difficult during our meal.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMA long-time family favoriteMy family has eaten at the Bluestone many times over the past 10 years, and always enjoyed it. The menu offers lots of variety, the food is delicious, and the prices are reasonable.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Dining experienceThis was the first time that my wife and I were seated in the glass enclosed patio. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and the patio was quite charming. The flowers I ordered were on the table and my wife absolutely loved them. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone that is looking for a wonderful dining experience.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMCelebrating an AnniversaryI looked for a nice restaurant in Timonium and Bluestone Seafood Grill came up in the list. Previous reviews said the service and food were great, and I would agree with both of those assessments. The server was very attentive and made sure we had everything that we wanted or needed, and she took pride in serving us while we were celebrating our anniversary. We happened to be there on a Tuesday night, when selected bottles of wine were half price, making the meal more affordable. The only drawback is that the dining room is not well separated from the bar area, which the noise level can be described as "energetic" in the above survey question. It made conversation a little more difficult, but the dining room had a nice atmosphere.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AM5 Stars!We have enjoyed coming to this restaurant for years. The food is always delicious, the service is excellent and the restaurant has beautiful and inviting atmosphere! 5 STARS!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThanks for a great meal..Excellent food.

Our only caveat, and we've seen it before, even warned our waitress : food will come out before you finish the salad. For some reason they have a very fast line from kitchen to table. We sent ours back, told the owner, and apologies given. A bit annoying, when we warned them up front. The waitress was excellent. Always a fun tasty meal. thanks! Mark4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat spot for a birthday lunch!!!Food was delicious and the $33 special was a great deal4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great meal at BluestoneWe had a great meal at Bluestone and go there often.

She was patient,friendly and most helpful with the menu. We started with the seafood dip. It was wonderful, bubbling hot but the pita chips, no so much. Very greasy. We used the hot bread that was served. There was a Halibut special, but I asked if I could have it just grilled with asparagus. It was perfect! Served healthy and hot. My friend enjoyed the Shrimp salad boat. No room for dessert! If you go ask for Brenda!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMI've been to this restaurantI've been to this restaurant 3 times in the past month (lunch and 2 dinners)and I am always pleased with the food and service.
