Californian
From its beginnings as a trade outpost, the Golden State has been a place where the cream rises and the bold take flight. Bluegold celebrates this land, from the vineyards and citrus groves to the rocky coast of the Pacific Ocean. A space where traditional farm-to-table culture is renewed beneath the California sky.

The menu is very interesting and eclectic. Our server was excellent and made good suggestions. It was a Monday night and lot of people in the bar watching TV, so got a little loud a few times. Didn't bother me, but might bother others if you are looking for an intimate setting. Some of the happy hour menu items are only available in the bar and not in the dining room. The "loaded tater tots" were delicious!

Definitely worth a visit in HB. Nice sized portions for SoCal; butter lettuce salad a great starter; fine to split. Huge scallops with mushrooms - outstanding!
Saturday short ribs special are a sure thing. We will be back

Overall was a good experience. Manager was very flexible with our small dog which was very much appreciated. One thing to note is the outside dining has NO view to the ocean and only overlooks the Mall area. Only downside to our dining was service was slow and he forgot about us when we were ready to pay.

Seafood was especially good. Nice view from the interior seating.

Hostess seemed overwhelmed. I was seated and being served my appetizer and she called my cell phone asking about my reservation. Rocky when she sat us as well; my party of 4 was first taken to a table for 2. Server was great though!

Some dishes such as Pan Roast are good, most other dishes have awkward proportions of seasoning and ingredients. Service was average, hosts were average

We ordered appetizer, salad to share, pizza and entree in addition to side of fries. All excellent - and we had much to take home. Advice don’t be too quick to order all at once - otherwise you get everything at once. Otherwise - awesome!

Awful experience. Long wait. Poor service. Asked if a meal had meat in it and was told it did not, however it had bacon in it. Manager did not care.

This is my go-to spot for the best cioppino. (not too thin, not too thick, and LOTS of seafood). Their salads are also amazing. Service is excellent, attentive but not overbearing. Their bar is average. The restaurant itself is very beautifully designed with a lovely daytime view of Huntington Beach. Will continue to come back!

The cuisine was amazing. Very creative and delicious. The service started out excellent but declined as our evening went on. I think it is best to budget 2 hours max for dining there. I don’t think they want guest making a whole night of it.

I took my 2 adult daughters there. Two of us had the pork rib With cauliflower purée. It was basically inedible .. tough, fatty and had like a knuckle bone in it. We didn’t complain but for $36 you expect more. Also there was no purée, just 2 pieces of tasteless cauliflower.

We waited 1/2 hour for the rolls, while watching table next to us order, eat and finish. Not waitress fault. Gave her 20% tip. Ordered halibut and salmon. Was the fishing boat late? We got a $7 appetizer comped. Wow........

This restaurant is over priced and over rated. They claim to be farm to table yet the ingredients do not reflect that at all We sat at a bench with a round table with no option for a chair which was awkward and cramped. There was nothing special about the food. We ordered truffle fries but could not detect the taste of truffle at all. The beet salad had only a few beets. One cocktail was $16 but the majority of the drink was a large square ice cube. Maybe it was an off night given all the great reviews but I won't go back to find out. There are other actual farm to table restaurants with organic and sustainable ingredients that I would rather support.

It seemed like they were just hit with a rush right before we arrived, everything was out of sorts. Out of milk buns, we got the last order & they were dry and old. It was quiet which was nice & our server was excellent, rest of the food was good.

Only issue we had with restaurant was the noise level it was horribly difficult to hear conversations without leaning over the table to get closer to speaker. Very Noisy. Food Excellent. Service wonderful. We ate in the Bar and the only negative there is it is the bar tenders who have to wait on you so that can get some delay's as they get focused on bar duties instead of table duties, but all in all it was excellent night, but don't go if your hoping to have a great conversation with friends it is very noisy

Food was generally good and atmosphere was great. However, steak came under done, and took forever to adjust. Ordered side of French fries that basically never came. No one seemed to really care. The manager did help with the bill, but overall experience was not great.

It was just ok. The vibe should be more beachy and less neutral. The bland colors are not very appealing for the location. The menu is too ambitious. I think they could simplify and maybe bring prices down.

My friend ordered the red snapper and the description did not make clear she would be served the entire fish, eye balls and all. I had a signature cocktail that was not very good. The tequila didn’t blend with the juices and required constant stirring. It was loud and costs pricey.

Not worth repeating unfortunately.

Food was good, not great. Service was extremely poor in my opinion. The restaurant was not to capacity, but one the orders were taken, it took a substantial amount of time to get the food. Even taking drink orders was slow. Love the location, like the different menu, but wine prices were ridiculously high. A bottle of Silver Oak Alexander Valley sales at the winery for $65 and if I remember the price correctly, they were selling it for $224 - come on man!!! The bar and bar menu is always a win, but dinner - not so much

We had a 6:30 reservation ... and left after 9 pm
I enjoy relaxed dining ... but... our waiter was lost the entire evening ....
Service was so slow and no one ever checked to see if we needed more

We talked to the water boy... and other servers more than our waiter (Bec our table was by some restock area)

At the en I really wanted a glass of port to unwind with ...& even that took forever to get

Will prob not revisit for awhile since was quite disappointed
