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

Disappointed in the menu. It’s not what small plates can be. It overwhelmingly designed to be bar food. There’s a difference. And offering only one oversized dessert just drives the point home.

Great Asian caprese salad. Nice ribs. Forgettable shumai.

Food was generally bad : noodles are in fact pasta, served very dry with greasy sauce, other noodles soaked with soy sauce, rib super greasy with no side. Extremely disappointing!

The Sake Clam dish is amazing. I would love a few more clams in it, but the flavor is stellar. The lamb potstickers were really good as well. It had a nice combination of flavors.

Hip and relaxed atmosphere; attentive and informed staff; flavorful, good portioned dishes (please add steak and cheese Rangoon special to permanent menu!!); tasty whimsical cocktails (even for the kids)

More importantly, the opportunity to dine without allergy anxiety in a nut-free kitchen restaurant was PRICELESS. Thank you ❤️

I was expecting it to be noisy, and it was, but not so much that you couldn't have a conversation (on a Friday evening). The pork belly bao was delicious- a big, meaty, crispy piece of pork belly that was not mostly fat, with kim chee that really went well with it. The Dan Dan noodles were also delicious and a generous serving. The shrimp shui mai were lovely and delicate and we should have had them at the beginning rather than after the more assertive dishes. The cast iron pan chocolate chip cookie ala mode is an indulgent treat.

Great location and not your traditional Asian menu. The kitchen is peanut/nut free & my daughter loved it (she has allergies and Asian restaurants are usually not safe). The Poke bowls, crazy noodles were delicious.

We just loved our evening at this restaurant. The food is spectacular; one dish more delicious than the next! Very original dishes and fabulous cocktails. A fun relaxing atmosphere, casual and not stuffy, but great for a special evening. Vibrant, but not too loud to talk. The staff went the extra mile in every way. We can't wait to return.

We were really excited about trying this menu, but were sadly disappointed. The amount of spicy oil that seemed to be used in the majority of dishes gave the food an off putting taste. Would still highly recommend the bao. I was more impressed with the gluten free menu, the teriyaki bison burger were decent. But the ratio of meat to fries was off. I would have preferred more of the bison to fries. But 2/3 of the meal was fries.

The food was all creative and excellently prepared. One exception was Th garlic boy Choi that was a watery dud. The dessert is absolutely amazing. It lives up to the description. My only complaint is a common one for restaurants...the sound level was deafening at times, and we could not here people across the table. It may be most suited to young people used to loud, boisterous conversations.

We were looking forward to this experience, being a pbs fan. Decor & host was great, but runners seemed to toss/slam dishes down, and food seemed to all be premade. I’m glad we went, but don’t think I’d go back. Wine list was tough to navigate, and the recommendation was pricy, but not to expectations.

This was dinner with an out-of-town cousin. The service was leisurely as the place was hopping. The servers let us linger as long as we wanted, which was great. We shared some dim sum plates and a veggie side and saved room for the warm cookie dessert. It was a bit noisy but overall a great place and a lot of fun.

We enjoyed the cocktails and wine as well as the ambiance at Blue Dragon. We liked our dim sum and entrees but they were just ok. Of the 10 or so dishes we tried the best and most substantial were the Dan Dan noodles. The other dishes were ok but I had much higher expectations due to the Open Table reviews that I used as a reference.

Delicious food and a fun atmosphere. Surprised by the communal table, which was fine, but not necessarily comfortable. St. Louis ribs was my favorite, but try the shrimp shumai & the sisig. Absolutely delicious!!

Great food - variety and quality. The staff is very kind and responsive. The only thing that bothered me was the amount of noise in the place, perhaps next time we'll go on a weekday evening instead of Friday.

Amazing dinner!! My son has a nut allergy, it was so wonderful to be able to not worry. Our waitress was the best, such incredible service! All staff was so friendly. And the best part was Chef Ming himself came to our table with a candle for my son. An unbelievable experience for him! And the food was awesome too. Highly recommend!!

We go here a lot, pretty much always get the same meal...
app1: kung pao brussells or whatever veggie it is that day
app2: some sort of wonton or rangoon type dumpling thing
main1: fish n chips (excellent)
main2: dan dan noodles (so good, basically their signature dish)

We want to try the tempura whole chicken but we haven't been able to stray from the fish n chips and dan dans. The place is great. Booze is top notch too...

Shrimp shumai was really fishy tasting and not delicious. Ordered the Thai Chili queso dip which was cream cheese with a few bits of chili mixed in. The food overall really disappointing. Would not recommend.
