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.

Romantic patio with heaters to combat the open air covid-safe situation. Huge and delicious brownie dessert. Great prices for plentiful portions. Strong drinks.

I had lunch with a friend in the “tent”. It was great, fresh air, warm heater. I don’t miss being inside at all. Service was great as always. The only comment I have was the cobbler desert was not heated through, and the top was not crispy. All in all, an enjoyable lunch.

We sat outside under a tree with a great view of the lake. A perfect for a scrumptious lunch with fabulous service, My prime rib dip was generous and tender, others had salmon both on sandwiches and a salad -- lots of smiles all around.

For the price of the food I was expecting a much more upscale place with great ambience, but I got relatively good food and good service in a place that reminded me a lot of Boy Scout camp

The view is beautiful. The grand mariner French toast is so tasty with a side of bacon. Coffee is pretty good. The ambiance and service was so-so. I’d go back as it’s a neighborhood standard.

Sadly, we chose not to stay and eat. We were greeted by an employee not wearing his mask properly - he had his nose uncovered the entire time he interacted with us. Although the staff seemed friendly, we couldn’t take the risk of other staff members not following COVID protocol and getting infected. We left.

Came here for my birthday. Sat outside with an amazing view. The service was attentive and timely. The food! Well the food was fabulous. I enjoyed stuffed mahi-mahi. It was stuffed with lump crabmeat and had a delicious lemon butter sauce. Served over creamy mashed potatoes with some asparagus spears. Also tried their French onion soup. Tasty. If you’re in the area you should check it out. They have some good champagne to sip while you’re enjoying the food and the view.

Had brunch here , food is good but not very special and ecstatic. The day I went , it was my first time and not sure if this is their norm but the service will take good time to get the food on the table , you need to spend good 90 mins enjoy the view outside for brunch

From Chicago, came to just relax. The food was exquisite. Fresh fish prepared so lovingly.
Creole salmon tacos topped with Cole slaw, finger licking.
Parmesan crusted rockfish with lemon butter and capers, so creamy, crunchy and delicious. Dungeness crab macaroni melted in your mouth, made with the gruyere worth every bite.
This Bistro, lakeside gem is a must visit!!

I’m so disappointed that BluWater Bistro has become such a dump. It was dirty, noisy and the food was overpriced and not great. And there were people walking from the marina and through the dining area outside the entire time we were there. I remember the days when it was an upscale spot to get great seafood with amazing views. Now it’s a like filthy overpriced Red Lobster with amazing views.
