The food is creative and prepared to perfection. Their Sashimi-based dishes and their Sushi is very fresh and their rice is just right. I have been going to this location for several years now and their food quality has improved since they got new management. It would be nice to see their Jazz evenings extended back to their old weekday schedule.

It is several years since I was there, and I found it excellent, and the food even better than I remembered. Can' wait to dine there again.

I have dined at BWG on several occasions. Last Tuesday, we were fortunate enough to served by Vittorio, an excellent waiter, who couldn't be more on point with his knowledge of the menu and specials. Most notable was his description of the Sea Bass special which I ordered at his suggestion. A whole sea bass, completely deboned, in a light, super crispy tempura, with a frisee salad and lime aioli. The dish was sublime. In addition, we were somewhat pressed for time and Vittorio completely accommodated our schedule and timed our service impeccably. Once again, an excellent dining experience!!!

Have been dying to try Blue Water Grill after passing it frequently in Union Square. Did not disappoint! Something for everyone (both sushi and cooked fish), great atmosphere, and lovely decor. Can't wait to go back!

The vegetable salad was average; however, the Grilled Arctic Char was excellent. The ambience is wonderful but the noise level was very loud.

My wine was taken before I finished it, and after asking for another one had to wait 15 minutes. Service was not great. They do not like you to swap out the sides (vegetables for potato for instance) and they forgot special requests. The ambiance is nice but the service not great.
