We opened The 3rd BluWater Bistro location in the Leschi neighborhood on March 13, 2004. Mick McHugh handed the reigns over to us after 22 successful years of running the Leschi Lake Café. With a slight remodel we cozy'd up the place, added some fantastic rollback windows, high back booths, some flat screen TV's, and leather furniture by the fireplace. The menu reflects all the goodness that a cozy bistro should offer, including the ever famous & popular "Lake Side Café" Fish and Chips... gotta keep the neighborhood happy. Stop in for some brunch on the weekends or some late night food.

Really great and reasonably priced spot. Friendly staff, some parking, nice view. Make a reservation, it is not a huge place. :)

This was a horrible birthday experience for my mother.
We made a reservation for 10 people, get there and there’s a makeshift table in the hallway where we were supposed to sit. We were right by the door and in peoples way. The food was mediocre and then at the end while we were eating cake the waitress asked us to leave because there was a large party waiting for our table. Oh my gosh! How embarrassing!!! We spent $600 to be kicked out before we finish our meal!

We had such a lovely time. The bar was loud and rowdy and we almost left, but were then seated at a quiet booth overlooking the water. It was like a whole different restaurant. Great service, great food, quiet and unhurried. I will go back again!

We had concert tickets that evening so booked an early dinner. There was barely anyone in the restaurant when we arrived (though bar area was busy & got progressively louder throughout our meal). The menu was appetizing, the atmosphere was pleasant, & the restaurant was clean & tidy; but the pacing was off. We'd allowed ourselves plenty of time, but the kitchen & waitstaff made our meal seem hurried. The entrees came out while salad was still on the table. The meatloaf was cold in the middle, & red potatoes side was undercooked. (Other than that, our meals, including dessert, were prepared correctly & very flavorful.) Waitstaff was friendly & attentive but consistently interrupted us mid-sentence. Finally I pointedly said we were not in a hurry, & the pace slowed down. Waitstaff comp'd the meatloaf entrée without our asking. I now live elsewhere & haven't been there in years (since it changed hands) so have nothing to compare to. It's possible they are so used to being slammed at dinnertime that the kitchen maintains a frenetic energy, but for an anemic post-holiday crowd, it would be great if it could adjust to a more leisurely pace.

It was very pleasant except for the cardboard boxes on top of the tall cabinet. I kept staring at them. They definitely ruined the ambiance

Went here for Christmas dinner. The menu was limited but seemed specialized for a few meals and they did offer a multiple course Christmas dinner. The service was quick and friendly, especially considering how busy they were. Food was good for what it was and I was overall happy.

We went for Christmas Day dinner. Food was good, though the emphasis was on a limited menu. We had the prime rib and roast turkey combination which was accompanied by soup, potatoes, green beans an pumpkin pie. The restaurant was busy so it is not fair to judge the overall service which was acceptable under the circumstances. We had to ask twice for bread, and twice for butter to go with it, which never arrived.
I would return when it was not quite so hectic

Once again, another pleasant Christmas dinner at this warm and well-run restaurant. The special menu variety is appreciates because I want all turkey but my husband likes his with prime rib. We appreciate the very professional and pleasant wait staff. Our "go-to" year around restaurant. Always a positive recommendation from us.
