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.

Food and service was very good. The window view of the ocean was awesome. A little overpriced but the food tasted great. Wished there were more items to choose from.

We had business guests in from out of town and had dinner at Bluegold this past week, Outstanding service and very very good food. Try the rotisseries chicken- amazing. Good views of the ocean and sunset while we dined.

Had heard good things about Bluegold, had a great dining experience at their LSXO inside this restaurant. My only complaint was that you could not order the same drinks that they have in LSXO in Bluegold. Otherwise everything was really good loved the Milk Rolls! My wife said she could go for drinks and Milk Rolls and be perfectly happy! The pork chop was cooked perfectly and paired with the Brussel sprouts and onion rings made for a great meal.

Hand crafted cocktails amazing. Very good, full of nuance. Food mostly amazing. Onion rings, scallops best ever, the mushroom "toast" which is more of a bread pudding/stuffing, the milk buns, and short ribs all to die for. The Vietnamese steak was a little stringy (wouldn't get that again). Very hip and friendly but sophisticated service. A little slow at times to visit the table, and the food was a little slow coming out, but who would want to rush a dinner like this?

I like Bluegold but service is very uneven. Food slow to come out and does not come out all at the same time. They don't clear finished dishes quickly and basic stuff takes too long to get. I give them props for being apologetic but I left irritates. They have a lot of competition that offer better service.

BlueGold sets the bar for amazing food. Especially their Ribeye Vietnamese style. Their house salad and clam chowder are incredible as are all their appetizers. Their drinks are equally as incredible to match food. View of Huntington Beach and pier are like cherry on top of perfect sundae

We had recommended this restaurant to friends and were so disappointed in the service. We had to pour our own wine and had to wait over an hour just to order. We had to ask three times for our server to come to the table. The Som dropped and smashed glasses at our feet and the bus boy swept our feet as if we were pieces of furniture. We waited over another hour to get our food delivered. Everything we ordered was very well done and creative but it’s not worth battling the horrible parking garage and the terrible service. I complained about the service at LSXO- the restaurant inside Blue Gold- in October but never heard from the restaurant. Management apparently does not care. We spent over 3 hours waiting for food and a check...

We tried to have a drink at the bar before dinner but waited so long we gave up. Moved to our table and waited forever for a server. Told we could not have a table by the window for sunset despite plenty of open tables in view. Felt ignored most of the dinner.

Really really slow service. Salad had way too much dressing on it. Salmon was undercooked.

Beet salad was good. Cheese tray was ok. People enjoyed the fried chicken.

Second time here, was hesitant because first was average also.

Nice view

Won’t return

Great great service! The food was absolutely disgusting. My Peruvian Sea bass was cooked in so much oil and that’s all you could taste. The escargot bone marrow was all oil as well and the escargot was under cooked. The ceviche showed up more like Poke but was seasoned well. The Milk rolls were good. Cocktails were on point. Very over priced for the quality but like I said we did get outstanding service.
Probably won’t return.

My strawberry drink was 3 ounces it was $16 that’s ridiculous then our food took an hour and a half to get to our table and the manager was kind and gave us some large discounts but with a high-end restaurant we were quite surprised....Very hard to hear our companions across the table extremely noisy and very warm temperature in our part of the restaurant by the window

The food is outstanding! Start with the milk rolls. They’re a must! The flat iron steak or the filet with Chimichurri sauce is my favorite entree, but my friends love the sea bass. The Brussel sprouts are the best thing on the menu, so add them as a side- maybe even add the spinach (my husband’s fav!)
Best drink: el chapo
Great service, too!

We were celebrating my brother’s 50th birthday which I put on the reservation but the restaurant didn’t do anything special for him. I saw our server bring a slice of cake with a candle on it to another table but not to ours. Speaking of our server, Irving was not very attentive. He was largely absent and we had to actively wave him down for service. It wasn’t even busy in the restaurant and our service was very slow. The food was good but the poor service really brought my whole experience down.
