Out of the Blue Ratings and Reviews
We ate here when in Boston visiting colleges. The staff here were wonderful in spite of it being a very busy Friday evening. The drinks were great (especially the lemonade-vodka drink) as was the food. We all loved their homemade chowder and the oysters also.
The food was great. Lots of fish selections at decent prices. Some non-seafood items, too. My Arctic char was great and my husband’s seafood platter was really good also. Our waiter seemed like he had had a long day, but the man who actually served the food was delightful. Good wine and beer selection.
Calling all seafood lovers! This place is the perfect spot. The feel and ambiance is nice, warm, welcoming, casual but surrounded by a good family vibe. All of the staff are super attentive and helpful. The value of the food was great too. We got the stuffed clams, stuffed calamari, and oysters for our app (everything delicious) and then for dinner my fiance got the grilled scallops which was a very plentiful portion, and I got the weekly special Tuna dish in a horseradish red sauce. Finger licking good.
Came here for dinner on the busy Tufts parents weekend. We had not made a reservation anywhere ahead of time and were excited that Out of the Blue had a 730pm reservation. I think someone had cancelled at the last minute. We really enjoyed our dinner. The Cajun swordfish was excellent and the shrimp scampi tasted so fresh. Walking into the restaurant a wonderful aroma hit us. Very inviting.
I chose this spot for a quiet Birthdsy dinner... the food was for the most part excellent!....best halibut my husband ... very fish fussy....has had anywhere... loved it. My son's swordfish was excellent. My daughters fish with pasta was delicate and perfect. My steak and shrimp earned the four star as opposed to five star as it was somewhat tough... the veggies and shrimp were delicious tho. Note that no oil/herb dip is offered with bread... you make your own at the table if you want it... the bread is beautifully crust-crispy. My Caesar salad with anchovies and home dressing was delicious!!
Highly recommend ... lots of great items to choose from, very relaxed atmosphere. Lots of patrons in the restaurant even tho it was a Sunday evening and pouring rain!!!..., says a lot for the restaurant and food!!!
I have been to this restaurant many times and I have written good reviews for it. Apparently there is a new cook who either is a bad cook or who doesn't know how to cook fish. I ordered the red snapper in spite of the fact that I have seen that fish on lists of endangered species. I really wish I hadn't, since that was the last time I will probably ever have red snapper. It was so over cooked and tasteless.
Out of the Blue is one of our favorite go-to restaurants. Great food & service. Never disappoints. We love sharing this restaurant with our local and out-of-town friends and family. Truly fantastic fish and very fresh, delicious vegetables. Yummy pasta. Can't wait to go back.
Outstanding meal and great service. Had the stuffed calamari appetizer which was truly unique and a "must order" if you like calamari. Clams casino were the perfect size with great flavor. Dinner was the Lobster fra Diavlo which was outstanding. Finished up with a canola which had shaved pistachios and was phenomenal. This place is a must visit if you are looking for Italian food with a flair for seafood.
Glad we used Open Table to book a reservation. Restaurant was packed but we were seated within minutes of arriving. We had the stuffed calamari for an appetizer, clams and linguini with red sauce and scallops with vegetables. Food was excellent. Wish we had room for dessert as they make their own desserts. Next time. We'll definitely be back!
If we lived in Somerville, we would eat here all the time. The restaurant seats a limited number of people, so I would always recommend a reservation. When we walked in the door, it seemed a bit noisy, but we were seated in the back near the kitchen, and the loud conversation wasn't a problem. The service was friendly and efficient. I had the Surf N Turf, which was excellent, a nice-sized steak and several grilled shrimp, along with broccoli, potatoes and half a sweet potato. Each person in our group enjoyed their meal very much. My wife and her friend ordered a side of broccoli and spinach, and were able to share one order--with some left over. Very generous. Nice to go out and have good food, with reasonably-sized portions at an affordable price.
We celebrated a birthday with a group of 6, and all had excellent seafood dinners. My filet of sole francaise with mushrooms was terrific! Service was friendly and efficient. It was noisy, and we could just about could hear ourselves our talk, but we all enjoyed and I would definitely return.
