Blue Dragon is Ming Tsai’s Asian gastropub in the heart of the Fort Point Channel and is about gathering and sharing. The menu features Ming’s signature East-West twist to classic pub fare. The tapas style menu (small plates) is designed to provide guests with a variety of options and flavor profiles. There are also a few chef inspired “Dinner Plates” that are served family style. Blue Dragon offers both a dine-in lunch menu as well as a to-go lunch menu. The dine-in lunch menu is more of an abbreviated dinner offering with a few additional lunch favorites. The lunch to-go option is an incredibly simple process that can be done through a quick call and pick up at the host stand. We are also on delivery platforms Caviar and Door Dash

Fantastic atmosphere. Our server for the evening Sarah was very knowledgeable and extremely personable. There when we needed her and gave us plenty of privacy when she wasn’t. My date wasn’t very hungry so we didn’t get to try everything that we had planned on ordering. My favorite of what we did have was the tuna tar tar. I’m looking forward to going back at a later date so we can try the rest of the menu! Very Gluten-Free friendly.

Great service, food was yummy (only one dish that we could have done without because it was too salty), but very loud. We were seated next to a loud group of 4 that made it difficult to have a conversation without yelling. Otherwise happy with our dining experience.

The waitress was very kind, but she was too busy. We went during restaurant week and almost every table was fully booked. A server has to manage groups of 5-8 guests and her energy is limited. Do you think everyone will be satisfied? Each dish was salty, the Dan Dan noodles were undercooked and had to wait a long time. We were satisfied with the waiter's attitude, but disappointed with the food. When we stopped eating and started drinking, busgirl began to clean the table. It made us feel rude. Was she driving us away?So disappointment, disappointment with the food.

I was looking forward to our night at blue Dragon, but was somewhat disappointed. The tapas style dishes were fine. I ordered the duck fried rice, but it was so salty I couldn't enjoy any of it. All flavor was lost due to the salt overdose. Being a huge fan of Ming Sai I expected better.

Great service but the food was very oily. My youngest ordered sliders and the meat seemed very off. He was unable to eat them and the server didn’t inquire as to why. Other than that, she was an incredibly attentive server. Food was hot and the ambience was that of a pub.

Other than the fact that we were seated next to a very loud speaking patron, our post-Valentine's Day dining experience was lovely. Drinks, food, service were all what we expected from Ming Tsai's team in this fun gastro-pub. The specials, in particular, were delightful.

Absolutely loved it! My boyfriend and I went here for the special Valentines meal and I highly recommend it. The meal was $100 per couple and there was 5 courses so it’s a great value. The regular menu is amazing as I have been here before. Service was quick and as expected, the noise was pretty loud since it was Valentine’s Day. I would recommend this for a nice date or a regular spot if you work nearby.

Terrible food overall. This place did not live up to the positive reviews.Tried 7 different dishes from the Pu pu for 2 to the whole chicken, brussel sprouts, octopus etc. Every dish was either way over salted or had no seasoning at all. Expressed our concerns to the server. Nothing was done.

While we generally love Blue Dragon, in part because of the quality of the service, this evening's dinner was a disappointment. The server's attention, timing and overall concern for the diners was really lacking. It was a marked contrast to every other time we've dined here. We'll come again but our friend who was with us, who takes dining very seriously, has no intention of returning. An unpleasant experience at what is normally an excellent restaurant.

Wanted to go to this restaurant for quite a while. Took my sister there for her birthday. Everyone...the hostess (who was also our waiter) was super nice, as well as the bartender. We arrived 1 1/2 hours early for our reservations. It was so cold outside. The hostess/waiter said we could sit at the bar until the restaurant opened. We had sake recommended by the bartender - excellent! Food is wonderful. Can't wait to go back. Hoped to see Ming Tsai...maybe next time.

Our server at the Blue Dragon was the best part of the evening. The food was interesting but it came out all at once and we were overloaded on a small table. The drinks were very good. The speed of the food delivery made us feel rushed. Not the relaxing dinner we were hoping for, we won’t hurry back.

I tried two of the shareable mixed drinks and both were delicious. I also tried the brussel sprouts (phenomenal, but salty), the baos (a bit overcooked), the dumplings (meh) and the noodles with clams (delicious). I really enjoyed the ambience and all of the staff were friendly and patient. For being so small, the place really fills up. I'm glad I had a reservation.
