We were there to celebrate a birthday. We had a wonderful time, they used screens to separate between the tables, the food was great, the wine pour was generals. We will be back.

The food at this restaurant was terrific. The owner was actually there and working his tail off. They are doing their absolute best in the service end with limited staff due to the pandemic. All in all a great experience.

Once again, we have only stellar things to say about Out of the Blue. The owner is patient and kind and the food is remarkable. We had some reservation changes, but were seated within minutes of arriving. We were greeted with smiles and recognition, (we have dined there previously). The owner (and I apologize) I do not recall her name, came over a couple of times, checked in with us and asked how we have been. Our server was efficient, knowledgeable and also patient and kind. The food? Fresh and clean tasting raw bar, octopus fork tender, tomato sauce not acidic and rich flavor, fish and seafood all fresh and prepared just right. Eggplant Parm was generous, nice cheese and sauce mix. Out of the Blue was also meticulous and socially distanced.

Valentine’s Day dining. Food was great, the staff worked their butts off. The restaurant smelled delectable while we waited for food. Servers were fun yet polite. We had a great time. Support local business, jumping into Out of the Blue

This is the first time we tried indoor dining here during the COVID era. Everything was good, including a very nice sidecar cocktail, mussels in white wine sauce, and linguine with white clam sauce.

The owner is so nice and remembered us from previous visits. She makes you feel welcome. We did not feel rushed, celebrating a special birthday, with only 4 of us. Food was fresh and flavorful; calamari, grilled octopus, linguine and white clam, frutti di mare, chicken parm, cherrystones..some chowder, yes we ate enough! Lovely complementary tiramisu for birthday girl. Place was clean and safely social distanced. Thank you, “Out of the Blue “!

The food was delicious and service excellent as always. Outdoor dining on a chilly night was made cozy with a space heater set up right next to the table. All that was missing was a little music to make a perfect outdoor dining experience.

Out of the Blue is out of this world! All the staff are friendly, welcoming, and attentive. The food is great and the outdoor seating is distanced safely. Have been coming here over the years and it never disappoints. A great place for family and friends to gather and enjoy a good meal.

The shrimp tasted a little fishy on our experience and the clam chowder could use some salt. Otherwise a great place to dine.

If you have a hankering for quality seafood, this is the best for you. One of my favorite restaurants in Somerville! And family owned and run! Don’t let the above average prices scare you off, it’s worth every penny!

First time here but won’t be our last! Great outdoor dining set up in a tent out back. Our waiter was great and I loved my food. I’m giving it 4 stars as my husband thought his food was just ok and the food wasn’t hot.

Still warm enough to eat on the patio. Really like the food being served in metal pans which keeps the warmth. We had fried calamari and clams with linguini served this way. Thanks for a great dinner always.
