BluWater Bistro - Leschi
Great atmosphere and views.
Food was excellent and service prompt.
It was a little loud bc there was a large birthday crew next to us but the view is great and the food was fast and tasty.
Nice, long standing neighborhood institution with good comfort food and nice views over Lake Washington.
I've been to BluWater Leschi on several occasions. The ambiance is always nice and the food outstanding. We had 8 in our party including 3 children and service was awesome. Dude was attentive. Checked on the table without being super annoying. There was also another young lady that went out of her way to periodically check on our table. She even helped quiet one of the little ones that was getting a little too pumped for the occasion. Absolutely great place to visit for all occasions.
This was my 4th time eating at BluWater.
The table settings where gross, cups silverware and bread plates.
My main dish was cold and they must had just took the plates out of the cleaner their was water drops on the plate. Yikes!!!!!!!
We came for dinner on our anniversary and had a great time. The food and ambiance were great. We had a nice both with a great view of the lake.
Perfect location--great views of Lake Washington. Exceptionally fine service. Splendid selection of beers.
We had a birthday and an anniversary dinner with 6 of us. Service was excellent and food was very good. Great low key ambience and the tip was optional not like next door at Daniels for +20%.
A really good meal with a different but cool outdoor seating option. Seafood was good and the cookie dessert was great
Location and service were on the outstanding side. The food was inoffensive, but nothing to write home about. As my mother would say, it was "fine". I loved that indoors and outdoors I could hear the person I was speaking with. I would recommend the place because the ambiance was good, the attitude of the staff was excellent and food was okay.
Came here for dinner with a group of six before a concert. Service was great, loved our waitress. She was fun and attentive and very apologetic for any even minor mistakes. Food was all fantastic. Loved the ceviche appetizer, and three of us ordered the street tacos and all loved them. We'll definitely be back!
Food was good, it was really nice to sit outside on a warm summer evening. Food was good. The s'mores dessert was the best! I'd go back there just to get that again!
The food was good, the waitress was delightful and we had a very pleasant evening meal.
Limited seating outside, but lovely on a summer evening when it’s not too hot. The shareable ceviche appetizer is a must, loaded with fresh fish and guacamole to go around. Seafood entrees, like the rockfish and halibut, are great options. I have not tried their salads or meat options yet because they do fish nicely.
Beautiful outdoor view! Nice late night spot too!
The food and cocktails were fantastic! We got the thai wings as a starter, fish tacos, burger, rib eye steak, salad, and various dishes off the kid menu. Everything was fantastic but the desserts were off the chart. S'mores for the kids and the tollhouse cookie in a skillet pan a la mode for the adults. Delicious! Great view as well.
The setting is lovely, the decor is dated, the food is okay, the service was great. It could be a terrific on-the-water destination with some tweaking.
Worst waitress I have ever had - saw her twice, when she took our order and then for the bill, slow service (over 45 mins to get our food and she never checked in with us) then when food arrived it was cold - I had to flag another waitress down to return the cold food - she pretty much ignored us
Bus boy was GREAT - Kept our water and coffee filled, brought us our to go box
Management did take off for the cold meal which was very nice
We have dined here before and liked it however not sure if we will go back due to the waitress we had.
Food was delicious, service was awesome, nice opening of the floor to ceiling doors by the bar to let in the summer sun and light breeze. both indoor and outdoor seating. obviously very popular.
We love this place! Anytime we are in the area we stop in for a meal or happy hour. Excellent quality of food. Great place to hang out
BluWater Bistro is becoming a regular treat for us when we visit Seattle. It is much easier than downtown and only minutes away on Lake Washington in Leschi. It's on the water, it has both indoor and outdoor dining (in season), the food has always been good. It is a large restaurant and bar and we have generally been able to get in on short notice with little or no wait. Easy spot to go for a date, dinner with friends, business meal, or special occasion. It is good for families too.
It’s one of our neighborhood “go to” options. We will return!
BluWater is the only place we order Salmon. That's because no other restaurant prepares Salmon perfectly like BluWater. Melt-in-your-mouth perfect every time!
Delicious and unhurried which was perfect for our conversation. Had the Steak and eggs for lunch and friends had the crab special and chicken salad. Topped it off with key lime pie and blackberry cobbler. Service might be too slow for those in a hurry but we loved it.
We ate outside and the view was fantastic! The seafood salad was amazing. It was huge and piled with crab, shrimp,salmon and mussels. The rib eye steak was great! It was cooked perfectly and came with mashed potatoes and corn on the cob. Our waitress was fun and very helpful! We had a bit of a wait for service at first but our waitress made it up to us by comping the dessert. I would definitely return for the next special occasion or even to try out the happy hour.
Only complaint was noise level. Very hard to talk to dinner companions.
Great location on Lake Washington. Food and service were great. Good variety - with large portions and reasonable prices. A definite keeper. And the brownie desert was amazing!
Had the caesar salad with crab added. Had a good amount of crab on a fresh salad
Lunch was un- rushed and truly relaxing at a table near the water. The food was excellent. My street taco were brimming with treats like salmon, guacamole, sour cream, and other goodies. They were delicious. My friend had salmon which she said was wonderful. Our wait person was helpful and unobtrusive. All-in-all it was a lovely lunch.
Exceptional service. Food was good; reasonably priced for a water-view restaurant. Restaurant furnishings are dated; and windows should be washed to enhance the beautiful lake view - basic stuff. But food was very good and reasonably priced. Shout-out to our waitress (sorry, name!) - awesome and accommodating. And, onsite, no charge parking. Can walk before/after meal. Will go again.
Very disappointing. I read the reviews on Open Table and other services and they seemed ok, except for a disastrous Mother's Day, but I figured the crowds are a lot lighter for Father's Day and we went later, after the special ended. It was still bad.
It was a warm day so we looked for restaurants on the water with patio dining. They had it - however the patio is next to the street and the water view is from inside, of an industrial pier.
The windows were also dirty and full of spider webs with some very large well fed spiders (on the outside).
The waitress was friendly and competent but she seemed to be the only one and was stretched to her limit. So we had to flag her down and she did forget a salad.
For the five of us, no one's food was very tasty - whether fish, salad, cauliflower steak, or hamburger. Soggy fries, greasy fish, bland cauliflower (not a surprise there).
I think I'll read the reviews a little closer from now on before booking.
Best Father’s Day brunch!
My parents and I grabbed lunch outside here while they were in town. It was great to sit outside with a great view of the cascades and lake Washington. Our food was great and we enjoyed some delicious cocktails on a sunny Seattle summer day.
This was the perfect setting for out of town guests who had not previously enjoyed dining at a Lake Washington water view. Everyone enjoyed their meal and we especially appreciated the family friendly environment. Our server was especially thoughtful and patient!
Super experience here all staff were friendly and efficient, food was excellent portions large and deserts are amazing loved this restaurant.
The Campari Spritzer was great and the ceviche was excellent. Good kids menu
It is what it is. It's pub food by the water. Not for foodies. Kinda wish they had more deck seating, since they are right on the lake.
BluWater is our in neighborhood go-to for weekend breakfast/brunch and weeknights when we just don't want to cook.
Tasty mussels, extensive wine list and great view of marina and Lake Washington.
The kitchen was overwhelmed and completely fell apart. Dinner with kids took 3 hours and the kids were served last. Got a free round of drinks, but that was it. Bar manager spoke to use, but no other manager was to be seen.
