Had a wonderful dinner at
Had a wonderful dinner at the Blue Point in Bloomington. Had been to their location in Wayzata before, and was pleased to find such an airy and spacious location (albeit a bit out of the way) in Bloomington! We enjoyed selections from the excellent wine list, and the oysters on the half-shell were delicious (we ordered Kumamoto oysters, which were very very small, but tasty!). For dinner, the scallop and duck plate was a wonderful combination. Thank you!

Good and varied wine list. Service was exceptional.
5/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Hands down. This was my best dining experience ever! Our server was willing to answer any questions I had on the menu. Amazing atmosphere!!! Thank you!!!

Best seafood, bar none!
The title says it all. They put McCormick & Schmick's to shame!
5/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
We needed a good restaurant for a business dinner in the SW Metro. We had not been to this location and found it worked well for us. They were prepared and staffed to meet our needs. The food selection was good and everyone indicated that they had a very good meal. We were able to have conversations around the table without competing with noise levels from other areas.

Went expecting a nice seafood restaurant and was blown away by the combination fantastic food and great service. Each of our three dishes were original and not one disappointed . Staff was attentive and knowledgeable overall an experience well worth the time and money.

Good food. Nice quite place.
My wife and I went there for the first time on our "date night." The menu is chalked full of fun seafood items with a few non-seafood items thrown in. Our entrees were great. I recommend the crab cake appetizer. Will definitely visit again when we're feeling fishy.
6/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our server was fantastic and handled a picky eater in our party very well! She was also knowledgeable about the menu and sensed some people may not like spicy food. The crab cakes and smoked shrimp flat bread were wonderful starters.
6/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a pleasure
Every time I go to Blue Pointe, it is always a great pleasure. The food is expertly created, the mixed drinks, beer list, and wine list are extensive and tasty and the service is always top notch.
6/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Consistently the best seafood!
Cocktail shrimp were huge and scrumptious; Oysters Rockefeller were superb; and the Maine Monkfish were delectable. A perfectly delicious evening was had by all!

Hard to find, wonderful surprise
Once you find Blue Point, it will all be worth it:) We were pleasantly surprised when we came to this restaurant. Wine list is good, food is great, atmosphere is wonderful.
6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
My initial take was this place is dying, the food will be bad, the staff morale will be poor. Fortunately it's not our first rodeo and we weren't going to let a lot of this get to us. After I ordered a half dozen oysters and a cockail the rest of the night fell into place; cocktails, wine, and service went well. Food sounded approachable and "suburban" but was prepared and presented "foodie". Given the whole night probably only saw 30 guests, Blue Point cuts corners, but smartly, excellent, knowledgeable, but not enough, servers, i.e. cheap glassware on low use items. It allows them to be excellent where it counts, the food. Food was elegant and well prepared. I had the Mahi and my wife had the Duck and Scallops. The Key Lime Pie is heaven.
7/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
We visited the restaurant to celebrate our anniversary and it turned out to be the perfect spot. Seth, our server, was both attentive and non-obtrusive. The oysters proved to be a fun starter course and the caesar salad, seared tuna, and mahi-mahi were spot-on perfect. I would recommend The Blue Point in Bloomington to anyone.

Had a very wonderful first
Had a very wonderful first dining experience this past Saturday night. Mary, our server, did a fantastic job as my husband and I celebrated my birthday.
Highly recommend the Blue Point oysters and bacon wrapped cod! Large, jumbo grilled shrimp were delicious over the fabulous mushroom risotto. Take a chance as we did!

It was my first time there,
It was my first time there, and had a great experience. Our server was great, very knowledgable and friendly. It was a little weird at times because it got so quiet. The music was so soft, you could barely hear it, which is better than loud music, but a little louder would have been good.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Loved the seared tuna and Manilla clams. We will be back.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fantastic seafood stew
The Thai-inspired coconut-curry seafood stew was spiced just right. The fish was very tender and flavorful. The service was very attentive despite the demands of a large party in the next room.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Consistently the very best seafood with a very pleasant atmosphere. NEVER a disappointment!
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent meal, as always
Whenever we have out of town guests who like seafood, we take them to Blue Point. The seafood is always fresh and excellently prepared, and the service is impeccable. In our opinion, the Blue Point is THE place to go for seafood in the Twin Cities.
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went based on a suggestion from a friend. We were pleasantly surprised. The fish was great. Our waitress helped us pick since there were so many great items on the menu. I had a Brazilian curry dish that was nice and spicy. My wife had the walleye sandwich which was amazing.

Fresh Seafood in Minnesota
First time at this restaurant and the food was great. The menus are printed daily based on what's fresh and available, and it sure showed in quality. The food presentation was lovely as well. I prefer their reasonable portion sizes to the typical "extra large" portions that other restaurants present. Other reviews have complained that it was pricey, but I disagree. I find that their prices were in line with other restaurants of that quality. Service was good. The setting was a little odd- attached to a multi-story building. The restaurant itself was modern and attractive. Good date night or adult outing choice. With kids, probably not.

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Blue Point. My Yellowfin Tuna was prepared to perfection and the rest of our group loved their meal too. The staff was very friendly and helpful, making suggestions that were to all of our liking. We are from Mankato and anticipate returning soon. Thank you Blue Point!!!

Good Seafood, Nice quiet place
I had been to the Blue Point out in Minnetonka. This one is tucked away off the highway in an office/school building. Once inside it is very nice. Looks great, quiet, nice decor - modern, not too bright or dark, and very clean. Wait staff was fantastic - attentive, got it down right and food arrived without long wait. Was prepared well, nice flavors, portions decent. Nothing done wrong. Seafood is a tough thing out here - priced high, preparation is all over the map, quality is mostly miss and not too many hits. This was a solid good experience. Not as busy as Oceanaire or McCormick Schmitt, but same quality food. You pay a bit more than Maine or Florida, but you get good stuff.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was my third time to Blue Point. Twice I've had the Halibut (my favorite) and this last visit was the Hawaiian Mahi Mahi. The blue crabcakes were fantastic. We also tried the cooked oysters and seared scallops. The scallop lovers at the table loved the scallops and one ordered an entire entree after trying the appetizer. For dessert we shared the beignets, which were fabulous. Light, but decadent.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was great, service was great - ample wine selection.....all in all a great evening! I thought the food was very reasonably priced - we had an appetizer two salads, 3 entree's and 2 glasses of wine - total bill was $150. We would definitely make a return visit!

Quiet, attractive restaurant
Quiet, attractive restaurant with knowledgeable wait staff. Good food.
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Blue Point was a solid experience. The food was relatively good - one minor exception was the ahi tuna appetizer - a little heavy on the Wasabi but others may like it. Note - it was not bad, just preferred a little less. Wine list awesome. Quiet and the service was excellent. Not quite the ambiance of the original in Wayzata but still nice.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Happy hour is lengthy with plenty of choices. Your appetizers are a generous size. Seared scallops were divine. Everything was fresh, delicious, and plated nicely. Wait staff both at the bar and in the restaurant were helpful and made the evening special. We had a delightful outing and can't wait to come back for lunch!
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
We'll be back
As I had read some mixed reviews on Yipe, I was pleasantly surprised. The ambiance was restful and Mary gave us outstanding service (the best I've had in months). We will return. I don't like cod but tried it because they said it was fresh from Alaska - it was outstanding (fish & chips). Nice selection on menu. We'll be back. My husband had the walleye sandwich and thought it was outstanding - a real meal for a big guy. Our guests felt the same way, they loved it. Understand they have an outstanding happy hour with excellent prices.

Brand New customer
I went in for the first time and was amazed! I will be back and will tell my friends to visit as well. Awesome service.

Blue Point great seafood
My husband and I went to Blue Point for our anniversary. The seafood was excellent. Very fresh and really tasty. We both had the Shrimp and Scallops over butternut squash risotto. The Brussels sprouts with bacon were phenomenal. Only the key lime pie was disappointing. too creamy not limey enough. I would definitely go back, but skip dessert.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM

We were a group of 7 people celebrating a retirement. Right from the minute we walked in, the service was excellent - there was never a wait for water, for bar service, for food, etc. Our waitress was fun but professional, and managed to get all of our orders correct and on the table at the same time. We loved it.
