Bluefin Grille Ratings and Reviews
The service was excellent great staffing , Oysters I would not recommend warm, and the shell breaking in your mouth , and very small! The scallops were excellent ! The desert given saying Happy Anniversary was very nice! and there staff bring it to our room was so nice!!!!!!!
Seated promptly. One waitress for 8 tables. Tried to get a table toward separate back area by window..told not enough staff to have this area open. Sat at table that was next to open bar area. Very noisey. Couple next to me were seated close enough that I could hear all about what was going on in their lives. Food was average and had the Statler chicken which was slightly dry. Wine selection okay and overpriced. Would not eat here for dinner again.
It was the Providence restaurant week. We could not do dinner so we went with a couple of friends to try a lunch. Being not familiar with the Providence restaurants, we picked one from the list on Open Table. I must say I was very disappointed. The food was very ordinary, nothing special about seafood or grill. A blah lunch. The place is in the Marriott restaurant. During mid-day it was not crowded. The waitress was not even aware of the restaurant week or there was a menu for it until she went back to ask. Overall a very disappointing experience. Hope the other restaurants are better.
The food was average at best. Expensive for an average meal. The restaurant was extremely understaffed. The waitress did the best she could under the circumstances. She spent most of her time bussing the tables and getting them ready for the next guests. Not what we would expect. There was no bell captain to help us get a cab. Not what whe would expect of a Marriott.
My cousin, her husband and their three kids (two twin boys under 6 months and a daughter, 3), dined here last night along with me and my husband. The food was well-prepared, tasty, and enjoyable. The service was outstanding. They even accommodated the kids with car seat holders (like a chair that holds a car seat!) and a coloring book/crayons/kids menu for the 3 year old. We had a wonderful experience and were treated very well. Thank you for making our mini family reunion a huge success!
We had a small family dinner to celebrate a major birthday. It was a weekday, early and very quiet, which was appreciated. The food was quite good: we ordered scallops, pork chops, salmon and steak and everything was delicious. The server was professional, attentive but not intrusive.
My only complaint had to do with the hotel disbursing some type of air freshener/perfume which caused my eyes to water terribly. SInce the restaurant is open to the lobby this was a real problem for me. SO my recommendation comes with an alert for people with sensitivitiy to perfumes.
Alcohalic drinks were terrible, we went on saturday before valentines day. We ordered several drinks and had to keep asking for them to be fixed. Food was good but not incredible. Was very loud but that is to be expected when it is open to the hotel lobby. We won't be rushing back.
With a weekend stay at the Marriott Providence with plans for a show at the VETs, I had hopes of dining close to the VETs. When I found that many others, who were attending the show had the same idea, I had to look elsewhere. What a great surprise to find such a fine restaurant right in the very hotel where I was a guest. Our waiter, Daniel, was very polite, attentive and friendly. Except for the music, which was very annoying, I would not hesitate to dine at the Bluefin Grille again.
This restaurant was not what I expected based on the reviews and pictures that I saw on line. The facility is right off the hotel lobby and it was rather small and not very nice. The biggest problem was that the glasses of Rose wine we ordered smelled so much of dishwasher soap that we asked for replacements. Would you believe even the second glasses also had to be exchanged. Eventually our waiter got it right and we were able to enjoy our wine without soapy residue. The best part of the evening was my Ahi Tuna dish which was excellent. I even asked our waiter to tell the chef how much I enjoyed it. The presentation was great and the tuna was some of the best I have had. The chef, Juan, even stopped at the table to say thank you for the compliment.
This restaurant was recommended by The Phantom Gourmet. We wanted good seafood nearby! We were seated promptly before our reserved time. My wife told the hostess that we came at the recommendation of the television show. She offered to have us speak to the chef! We were thrilled. Our first course was the small neck clams. Delicious! Next, I had the Lobster Bisque and my wife had French Onion soup. Both were outstanding. Bisque was smooth, creamy and savory. Onion soup had the perfect amount of melted cheese and caramelized onions. The sweetness stumped my wife, but the chef told us it was made with a Medeira wine. He just came out to meet us as my wife was finishing her soup. Next, I had the Seafood Scampi and my wife had the Pan Seared Scallops with Butternut Risotto. Both dishes were great, and plenty for us to take home. Our dessert course was my wife and I sharing the Boston Crème Cake. Tiny in size, but perfectly blended pastry, cake filling and chocolate. We highly recommend Bluefin Grille.
