great spot for "gal pals" get together
Music, good food and wine and they take reservations.
Great setting, friendly wait service and generally very good food. The creamy chicken vegetable soup was superb, as were three of the four entrees. Only disappointment was the prime rib, which was seriously undercooked initially and a poor quality piece of meat. For the price paid the expectation was definitely not met. Only negative mark on an otherwise enjoyable meal/evening.
We sat outside to eat, great atmosphere with live music. Its facing east so no sunset view. Food and service were fantastic. I had Island Maki sushi roll and my friend had Shrimp Alfredo. Inside dining area looked awesome so we will be back to dine inside this winter(:
This was our first time at your restaurant and we were pleased with the food selections and service. The clam chowder was especially good! Nice location by the waterfront and welcoming dining environment.
Every now and then there are service issues at Blu Mangrove . Tonight the restaurant was very busy but service was fine and we really enjoyed our food. My husband had the pork chop, perfectly cooked and delicious and definitely too big, so he had lunch for tomorrow. I had the chicken piccata. I ordinarily do not eat chicken in restaurants because chicken is such a staple at home. Tonight I craved it and enjoyed all I could eat. Once again too much food so I have lunch for tomorrow. Enjoyed the food and the service tonight
The server was very slow to take our order and the restaurant was empty. The food was good, but took forever to come out. Overall, the waiter was not there. Claimed he had a table outside and was busy. Again, the restaurant that had been crowded at 7, was empty at 8 and my table had not even place their order.
The service was great. We were a party of 13 and they treated us very well and did not skip a beat. They even made us cinnamon butter and brought out Advil for a guest with a headache. The food was excellent. Very large portions at a great value.
Disappointed. Found most of the negative reviews to be accurate.
Although it was not very busy, service was not the best, granted we had a big table but she had help. Our meals were not brought out at same time. I was satisfied with my dish but my friend said her crabcake was terrible. I tasted it, not awful but not good. Other's dishes were mediocre. Of note, I had not been here for about 2 years due to the quality of the food but we wanted a nice place to sit outside other than our normal spots. Drinks were slow coming too and don't advertise a spicy margarita and not have it be spicy at all and don't advertise Patron but give me Jose Cuervo.
My grandson had children's fish and chips which used Grouper and was not good, but the other 5 meals were really good and the mussels starter was excellent.
Try the coleslaw. It is fresh, chewy, fiilled with shredded Brussel Sprouts and bits of kale and eating it tonight made us feel like were doing something healthy with great taste. Our burgers, yes we ate the entire roll, were perfectly prepared and delicious. But then again, we always have a good burgers at Blu Mangrove. Hot as it is right now, outside was busy and inside was quiet, peaceful and enjoyable. Good service tonight.
New to the area and wanted to check out a local place - food was excellent and service was top notch, thanks to Freddie! Our favorite menu item was scallop maki; would return for that alone!
Although the food, ambiance and wait staff were terrific, I was disappointed that the birthday person did not receive a treat on this special occasion. I had specifically stated on my reservation that we were celebrating a 70th birthday.
After an excellent first dining experience in August of 2016, each visit since has been more disappointing than the last. Our latest dining experience included one specific request due to a food allergy and it was completely ignored by he kitchen and attempt to correct by the server. in addition the kitchen was terribly slow. The only positive was the kids in the party enjoyed the Brownie Sunday.
On the Open Table scale of 1 to 5, tonight's burgers were spot on a solid 5. But then we always have a good to great burger here. But service tonight, hum hate to complain because server was friendly but just not on top of our table. We never had our water refilled. We did a bottle of red wine and questioned Merlot to Go law and it seems as though server was unfamiliar. On her behalf she did have several larger groups outside but we were left in the dust. Our wine was never refreshed. We asked for coleslaw with our burgers but one came with fries anyway and we had to ask for the coleslaw but not with our server as she never checked. So although server was polite with a big smile I am even reluctant to give her a 3. The ultimate was having to ask for a bag to carry out our bottle of wine.
