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.

This restaurant has the right idea beautiful setting in Beach, good cocktail menu, but the food menu is too much. From small plates, to kettles, to pizza, to gourmet. They are all over the board and instead of doing one thing great they do everything ok. Good try but not executed correctly.

Overall good experience, would come back. Reserving a specific section was confusing because the only two options for seating sections were “bar” and “outdoors,” neither of which are able to get a window table for a view of the ocean, which I guess is a different seating section altogether.

Great location, beautiful restaurant, and nice staff. The menu had a few vegetarian options that my friends enjoyed. Drinks were expensive and the entrees were also. Best overall restaurant in Huntington Beach!

The food, as usual, was great. Our server forgot to put in one of our entrees, and it did not come out until at least 30 minutes after the rest of our entrees. It was a simple avocado tostada, so I don't understand why it took so long. There is always a risk of these things happening when servers don't write down (or type in) orders. Also, I had indicated in our reservation that we were celebrating a special birthday. I don't think our birthday cake would have arrived if I had not spoken with the hostess. I am accustomed to better service at Bluegold!

First time having dinner here. View is awesome but not sure what happened with the service. We waited an hour for our appetizers, none of which needed to be cooked or warmed up. Had to pour our own wine....not a big deal...just not the type of service expected. Waitress was embarrassed but rather than try to make up for the time lapse she seemed to avoid us expecting the manager to "fix" things.

He was gracious and came over to adjust our bill without us having to ask. Hoping it was just a bad day over a holiday weekend.

Food quality was not good. Not worth returning. Especially disappointing was the lobster corn chowder - lobster meat was the worst part, not fresh and super fishy. Had to take it out. Escargot with bone marrow had no bone marrow and escargot was over cooked with no flavor. Highly disappointed. Service was friendly and view was great but doesn’t make up for the food.

The entire experience of Bluegold was terrible. It was my friends birthday and neither of us have been there and so we told the waiter that. First, you could tell they didn’t know their tables and went to five different parties before they realized it was our food. Then they asked another table where the birthday was and we were never given anything until we asked for the third time. The “salad” I ordered gave me the intention of a dinner portioned salad considering it was almost $20. Nope, it was the size of a sushi roll and was just not good. The atmosphere however was amazing and wish I saw more of the inside.

I had requested a table with a view when I made the reservation since it was my anniversary. Our table had a perfect view of the beach across the street. Our server was amazing. He was energetic and knowledgeable about the menu and drink options. I can't wait to go back.

This restaurant never disappoints. Very good service every time we've been there. This is our 5th meal here and this time, we brought kids and grandkids. Each time, we try something different. The two men had the breakfast sandwich with sausage and tater tots, the daughter had the omelet, the grandson had pizza, and I ordered the Shakshouka, which was awesome and not too spicy (careful with the star anise pods). They have brunch on Sundays with bottomless mimosas. Their seafood dishes are excellent. I have had the cioppino and the clad before. The crab toast is awesome, like the milk rolls. Lots to choose from. There is something ion the menu for everyone! Will be back.

The atmosphere was great. Beautiful views and a pretty restaurant. The food was good however my pasta came out somewhat cold. Our server was not very attentive and seemed annoyed by us when asking for things. I understand it was a very busy Saturday night but we waited about 30 minutes for our drinks and the table next to us (also a foursome) received much faster service by the same waitress.

I booked through Open Table and when I arrived The table they gave me was right by where the servers put in orders, etc and it was right near the front on the corner where people entered. I asked the hostess if there was any other tables available, and she told me every table was taken even though the place was mostly empty.

Maybe if you book direct you will get better service, idk.

We ended up just leaving and went to one of the many other restaurants near by and had a wonderful time.

We had a 6:30 reservation on Monday and were seated promptly. Our waiter was good, he took an appetizer order and had drinks out to us quickly. Around 6:45 we ordered. We had another round of drinks at 7:15. At 7:45 still no food. The manager was brought over. He apologized and said our ticker was the next up. After watching food leave the kitchen for the next 25 minutes, we decided we had waited long enough. We told the waiter we were leaving and asked for our bill. The manager came over. He told us there was no bill. I found it troubling that he didn’t find our plight more concerning. We walked next door and were served nachos in ten minutes.

I really can’t rate the food since we did not eat. The restaurant is quiet noisy.

Tourists: beware of this restaurant- maybe we were just an outlier, but management’s apathy suggests otherwise.

Sunday brunch was not as good as the many other times we have come here for dinner and lunch. We ordered appetizers which came within a reasonable time. The main entrees took forever, 40 minute wait at least. Server said because it’s Fathers Day. However the place wasn’t even full. We sat down a little before 1 and half the restaurant was empty. We didn’t ask for anything special on the menus we selected. As I said we have dined here many times before when the place is even busier. No apologies from the server or the manager other than the food should come out shortly. We were also almost done with our entrees when the server came back to check on how our food is tasting. Quite disappointed, we live nearby and definitely not our top choice restaurant anymore especially for brunch.

The food was so exquisite. Husband and I went for our wedding anniversary. We would go back again with out an occasion to celebrate and be willing to try more items as everything ordered was so good. It is a little pricey, but you certainly get the value in portion size and taste so it was worth it. The server was very helpful, polite and attentive. Looking out over the beach was beautiful and relaxing. It was a little loud but only because the restaurant was full and there was a lot of chatter at each table.

We have been to Bluegold several times and have ordered a variety of menu items. The drinks are unique and the wine list is varied. The crab toast is awesome. So is the seafood caldo and copping. One of us had the tuna sandwich at one time and raved about it. The service is excellent and the waiters are very quick with the orders. All in all, we keep going back for more.

The service here was atrocious. We sat and only received one food menu and one drink menu. After ordering it took a while for two glasses of wine to arrive. Then, only my wife received her appetizer, with apologies about the delay for mine, which took another 20 minutes. To top it off, after waiting another 30+ minutes, we still did not have any main dishes so we got up and left.
