Food was mediocre at best for a seafood place they completely overcooked the fish. Staff seemed like they were all hired yesterday and were all running around like a bunch of headless chicken. By 9 pm lights went off music went up. Very odd experience.

Everything was wonderful. The server and all of the wait staff was excellent. The one thing I will say is the one manager/ Maitre D was awful and unpleasant to his staff within earshot of people dining and his lack of discretion was the only thing that took away from an overall lovely experience. Whatever he was reprimanding his staff for should have been done away from the patrons. It made me and my guests quite uncomfortable.

The food seemed very low quality, especially the pizza appetizer. After my entire table had taken one bite we were in agreement it tasted frozen. As you can see in the picture, it looks similar to a pizza you’d find in the frozen section of a food store. The pasta entrees were nothing special at all, but were better when compared to the appetizer. They were also very small portions and I left hungry. The best thing we ordered was the burger which isn’t saying much. Overall very disappointed and will certainly not be returning

Actually the worst meal i have ever had in my life. The food was vile and definitely not made by anyone with any cooking experience. I would have rather gone to olive garden.

Ambiance, you ask? Noise, you ask?

The rainstorm backed up tables inside, so we were seated in the nightclub at the back. This would’ve been fine if they made any attempt to make the room NON night clubish. But alas, no matter how many times I asked, the nauseating blue light stayed on, the overhead lights stayed off, and the music stayed loud. The lighting was so bad that all our food looked fluorescent - the tomato sauce looked neon orange, and the tuna tartare looked brown. Never in my life have I appreciated presentation (or lack thereof) so much. I spent the whole meal eating with my fork in one hand and my phone flashlight in the other to make the food look palatable enough to eat.

The cherry on top? As we were leaving, they seated a party that was celebrating the GRANDMA’S BIRTHDAY. IN A NIGHTCLUB. Poor grandma :(

The other cherry on top, you ask? They charged us $25 for something that we cancelled because they didn’t have it in stock, and then when I asked them to take it off the bill, they made sure to let us know that they “took off a bit extra” wink wink. The “extra” they took off was a whopping EIGHT (8) DOLLARS.

TLDR Blu Mar has no concept of what fine dining means if they treat their patrons to a smelly nauseating nightclub experience, and servers didn’t even try to rectify the situation.

Awful service, but good food once you get it. Arrived on time for reservation and was told to get a drink at the bar, bartender said we had to wait for drinks because he was too busy. Seated 20 mins after reservation, then sat at table for 30 mins without drinks or water and had to ask for a waiter to come over to be served. Witnessed manager yell at waitress in front of outdoor dining room.

Waited at the table for over 30 minutes, without anyone stopping by. Had to ask the manager to send a server and get waters, and he was very bothered by the request. Drink and food order took over 45 mins to get to table. Decent food, but would not recommend going to this place.

Food was excellent , albeit a little pricey. But it’s the Hamptons so not unexpected

Bill for four people with no drinks exceeded $200. It took one hour for our entrees to arrive with an empty restaurant after 7PM on a Tuesday. Most of the seafood was overcooked for a restaurant that advertises itself as mediterranean seafood restaurant. This alone would be enough to not come back here. The service was exceedling poor. Food runners did not know who ordered which menu item and had no idea how to set or serve a table. At one point an inexperienced waiter completely spilled a drink on us. The manager made no offer to rectify the situation. Finally, the staff completely forgot to bring us dessert menus. After we asked for them, they forgot to take our orders. I understand its difficult to hire experienced staff right now, but 2 hours of on the job training and reasonable organization would solve almost all of these problems.

Oh my god. This was the worst experience.

The manager had two wait staff and seemingly no one else to make drinks or cook food.

The pizza was not as described and my first reaction was ‘Digiorno’ because it was frozen pizza. The chicken soup was either canned or powdered. The fried foods soggy and lathered with terrible sweet sauce.

Several other tables also did not get their orders in and were neglected for over an hour as they struggled to deliver. Not staff’s fault but management’s.

We went for dinner. 20 minutes in, the doors to the club opened into the restaurant. We were told if we wanted to stay for dinner, we would have to purchase a bottle. We gave the waiter a credit card to open a tab. Took over an hour to order our first round of drinks and when we did, the waiter said there was no credit card on file. Every 10 minutes $50 purchases were being added to my credit card bill, but "there was no card on file". They said that they lost my credit card, and in exchange, they would give each of us ONE free espresso martini. After hours of arguing with the manager, he said to just cancel the card as it's not his problem. Will never go to this place again and I suggest you don't too. They steal your money and the people at the "club" don't look a day over 18

The food and service was good. They momentarily lost their liquor license so getting wine or cocktail couldn’t happen. I would have liked to know. Resy should have known. $180 for three people is also expensive for pasta.

It was our anniversary and not a single person cared or made an effort to even say congratulations. They called me 10 min before my reservation to tell me they weren’t serving any alcohol but I had already driven 35 min to get there so I didn’t see the message until we sat down. We were in and out in less than an hour. Food was good but we had much better elsewhere for half the price.
