Out of the Blue Ratings and Reviews
Out of The Blue affords diners a great seafood meal without the higher prices of downtown. We have been there four times now and each time the experience gets better. Service is friendly and attentive without being intrusive. This time my wife had the grilled salmon- done just the way she likes it and I had shrimp scampi over linguine. I try something different each time but this shrimp dish will definitely get visited again. Hopefully this time I will be able to finish it. Davis Square is a nice place for a dinner and a film and Out of the Blue certainly meets the requirement for good food and a pleasant dining experience.
Wonderful space and fantastic service! The bread served before the meal was fairly mediocre, but our arugula salad was very fresh and perfectly dressed. The pasta special I ordered had great flavor, but the shrimp and scallops were over cooked and a bit rubbery. My friend’s swordfish was also over cooked, but with good flavors. Overall, it’s a wonderful spot, but maybe on this particular night the cooking wasn’t at its best.
SO Pleased with this gem! Walked past it a million times and assumed it was expensive, but was pleasantly surprised. The food is AMAZING and they are so accommodating if you want to customize your own meal. The wine was super affordable. Our waiter was super friendly and even offered to take a photo for us. The atmosphere is casual and cozy - 10/10 would eat here again. A true North End meal in Somerville.
This great neighborhood seafood restaurant is terrific. The service is excellent, a good and reasonably priced wine list, and a great menu. The fish is fresh and well prepared. The kitchen area is open so you can see the chefs at work and smell the wonderful aromas. The prices are food are reasonable and affordable. I think Out of the Blue is as good as any seafood restaurant in the Boston area. It's now on my list of "go to" favorites.
A warm, welcoming neighborhood restaurant. It features a broad and interesting menu and friendly, helpful yet unobtrusive service. There were four of us; both appetizers and all of our meals were terrific. As was the freshly made cannoli we shared for dessert.
I was picking my husband up at the Boston Airport at 4pm on Sat night. He suggested we go out to eat and didn't care where. I tried to pick a place that would be on the way home for us since we live in NH. I picked Out of the Blue in Somerville MA. It was a great pick. It is mostly a seafood restaurant. We had PEI mussels for an app then Scallops and Salmon for our dinner entrees. It is in a part of Somerville called Davis Square. The parking will be your only issue. I made reservations on Open Table for 5pm so we didn't really have a problem. Hope you will give it a try.
After receiving a gift card, my husband and I made a late (7:45) dinner reservation. Right from the hostess greeting I found the service to be prompt, friendly and extremely attentive. The restaurant is not very large and longer than it is wide so it’s cozy but comfortable. There is plenty to select from the menu and I found the specials quite tempting. We shared an appetizer of calamari, ate way too much fresh Italian bread (basket was refilled before it was empty) and each ordered an appetizer. The waiter was patient answering our questions and sincere in offering recommendations. My husband had the seafood platter and I had the Frutti de Mare, fra diablo style (you have choice of sauce preparation). Though completely stuffed, we saw the tiramisu pass by and split it. We will definitely add this to our local favorites as it’s just a 10 min drive from the house with decent parking options nearby.
When we arrived for our reservation, they only had a table by the door and it was quite chilly that night. As soon as another table opened up, they moved us to a more comfortable location so that we would not be chilled every time the door opened. That was very thoughtful. The food was very good and the seafood was fresh. The waiter was attentive to our needs. Overall, we had a nice experience for our first restaurant in Somerville.
Food was excellent. Cooked exactly as ordered. Wait staff was attentive and friendly without overdoing it. The fan was blowing either air that was too warm or too cool. That, along with the noise level (too noisy to have normal conversation without raising our voices), made the dining experience rather unpleasant. But the food was good enough that we will return. Maybe we'll go earlier before it's too busy or on a weekday night. We were there for a 6:00 reservation on a Saturday.
Fabulous experience from start to finish! Our shared mussels in white wine and garlic was a perfect appetizer and so was every entree on our table. Bronzino, the roasted whole fish is surrounded by perfectly roasted potatoes, sweet potatoes, tomato w a touch of capers and perfectly prepared fresh green asparagus for a divine dish , as good as I have enjoyed anywhere! My son loved his Seafood fra diavalo , nice and spicy and my husband's monkfish was fresh and memorable as well. Their bread is just the way Italian bread should be and the wine , I had a Pinot Grigio from Italy , was served by the glass and very affordable. What professional effortless service by super attentive , knowledgeable wait staff! These guys know exactly what they are doing at Out Of The Blue!!
First time here for girls night out and a show at the Somerville Theatre. Service was fast and very friendly. We ordered the calamari and scampi for appetizers. Very tasty. For dinner, the salmon, swordfish, monk fish, halibut stew, and chicken parm was ordered. We were all extremely happy with our meals. Cooked perfectly. Very nice meal and will return.
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.
