The food was amazing...start with the Milk Rolll for sure!!! We also had the butter lettuce salad and the brussel sprouts, both were better the we thought. I’m our opinion, the flavors were perfect, nothing was to bold, just had the exact flavor they said it did!!! Our entree was the Friday special, perfectly cooked lamb chops, if you like lamb, you have to try it. Desert was the Blue Gold signature dish, I loved it, the look of it was amazing and I couldn’t get enough to or the flavors. It was a perfect evening, with all the staff going above and beyond.

It was so loud that it was impossible to carry on a conversation. The sea views were amazing and the food good, if overpriced, but the excessive noise make it really difficult to enjoy our visit.

My husband and I celebrated our 26th wedding anniversary at Blue Gold. We were fortunate to get a last minute reservation, the restaurant was packed on a Wednesday night and if noise is an issue then you may want to try sitting outside on the patio. Even though our waiter mentioned the kitchen was a bit slammed that night we never noticed a delay in our meal. The appetizer selection was outstanding, you have to try the sous vide octopus. So tender you can cut it with a butter knife. The pork jowls were also delicious. My husbands entree was the Caldo Steamer bowl, everything cooked to perfection and the addition of the traditional Vietnamese garnishes was just the right touch. My entree didn't quite measure up to the rest of the meal, I ordered beef cheeks with paparadelle pasta. The ratio of pasta to beef cheeks was a bit much and although the beef cheek was very tender the flavor seemed diminished in the roasted tomato sauce. It wasn't the best note to end on but overall we really enjoyed the other menu items we ate that evening.

Service was excellent. Staff was very nice. Food was good, but very different than what I'm used to (I'm from Atlanta) but I thoroughly enjoyed it. Huge fresh shrimp. Lovely fresh and ripe vegetables. Enjoyed the milk rolls and the eggplant meatballs. Drinks were spectacular.

The service was great and I adored my waiter. I would have given all five stars, but I ordered the corned beef hash and found it way too oily. My friend ordered the steak and eggs and hers was really good! Would go back, as the sangria was yummy and we took advantage of the endless mimosas.

All the appetizers we ordered were terrific. Cocktails well done but they were out of the gin I ordered and that lost a half point on their score.

We were interested in the Surf and Turf to split. Specifically asked if they removed the lobster from the shell. Our waiter confirmed it would be removed and then placed back into the shell, claws/knuckles cracked. The lobster was served intact with nothing loosened or cracked. The shell was too soggy to crack and made for a most unpleasant experience. We had no choice but to send it back. Our server spoke to the chef who informed our server he needed to add that request when placing the order. The. Ribeye steak was also a disappointment. Only an inch thick... expected a two inch thick steak to match ambiance/price.

Had high expectations after just dining at LSXO four days previous, which was amazing. Have also dined at Little Sister... never a disappointment. Bluegold has us at the appetizers and quickly lost our enthusiasm with all our entrees.

Portions were much bigger than we expected. Food was great and the view is awesome. My wife is gluten free and they were able to accommodate her. They don't list the gluten free items on the menu, but the water was very knowledgeable. She had the short ribs and LOVED it. We'll definitely be going back for special occasions.

We enjoyed the food and the view of the ocean from our table. We had a really difficult time hearing our guests at our table with the noise level as loud as it was. Our food server was more interested in talking and telling about her favorite menu items versus listening to what we had to say. Then again with the noise level pretty much drowned her out anyways. The worst part is three dinners arrived at the table and the fourth dinner came almost five minutes later!!!! Using proper table manner etiquette we waited and waited and waited for the fourth entree and thus are food was lukewarm. It's too bad the poor service by our waitress ruined our evening out with friends.

Our new go-to place in HB. The restaurant very inviting and we were properly greeted. The layout is well designed, the kitchen looked great, our server was excellent and the food even better. It will take you time to make a menu selection and we shared many items. Pizza, salad, rolls, garlic fries, cubano and a fish soups. Not a miss in the bunch. Will be back often and they validate parking which was a nice touch. Hat's off to the manager, it was apparent they took the job seriously.

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...
