We were in town for a weekend and wanted to check this place out. It was easy to make reservation on Open Table and were immediately seated upon arrival. We originally booked for outdoor seating, but it ended up being colder than anticipated. The host was great with helping us find seating inside instead—we were sat at the chef’s table similar to eating at a sushi bar. This was great because we got to see the kitchen preparing all the dishes and guessing what each was. We ordered a variety of dishes, but had trouble with a few. For instance, many of the clams in our daily steamers weren’t cracked open and the sauce was missing butter. Also, the uni risotto was overcooked. Our waiter was great with helping us sending back the dishes to be remade and ensured that it was better the second time around. Overall, we had higher expectations for what we ordered, but had a good experience nonetheless.

It was so disappointing! We never got our food. The waitress obviously forgot to put our order in and we sat there for 50 minutes waiting for 3 easy dishes, breakfast & a salad. The waitress checked on our order and said that the food was ready and sitting in the kitchen but she was waiting for the third dish. We asked her if she could kindly bring whatever was ready out and she completely ignored us. We sat there and watched how people got all their food delivered and they came in 20 minutes after us. The restaurant was not busy when we went in so it was such a disappointment would never go back or recommend it.

Very loud and the service was not up to past standards. Had to wait a long time to be seated. Server forgot ordered items. I still love the food and will go back as this has not been my typical experience.

Seated quickly. Waited over 20 minutes at our table for someone to say hello or even bring us water. It took me to flag down the manager to get some attention.

The server (finally) was VERY NICE and PROFESSIONAL.

Filet mignon was fabulous everything else was fairly good.

Spent over $350. I’d say there are much better choices of restaurants.

Deeply disappointed, as you’d think they would have at least brought us rolls as a little gesture. NOPE. Fully charged $7 for 4 bland rolls with honey and butter.

SKIP IT

Service was awful. We got a glass of water then waited about 20 minutes for our server to come back. Food was okay, not the greatest for the cost of the bill The table next to us (there were only 4 people) thought they were the only ones in the restaurant. They were soooooooooo loud and disrespectful of others around them. Not worth the price. There are mush better restaurants out there for the same price or even less. Other than the view, it doesn't offer much. Don't waste your money.

The food was wonderful. The Brussels sprouts and filet mug on were delicious. Our food took a really long time but we didn’t notice because we had good company. The waited felt bad so he took a round of drinks off the tab. Would still recommend.

Food is always fantastic, great service from the staff. Only small issue was we asked to be seated by or facing the window for the view, we were seated facing away from the window, not sure why given there were open tables facing the view

The food was pretty good. But not out of this world. That said the service was abysmal. We waited an exceptionally long time for everything, no one checked back to make sure our food was ok after delivery. Our server kept disappearing for long periods of time. Our appetizers appeared so out of sync that some of us were done before others had arrived. Ordered a glass of wine and had to ask multiple times to actually get it. The food was good but not amazing. But the service was really bad. Especially considering the caliber of restaurant/price.

Took about 25 minutes once seated to get our drinks. We ordered a $100 bottle of Champagne. When it finally came the waiter said it was warm and would need to chill some more. Once he opened the bottle there was no pop of the cork. The champagne was flat. We sent it back and ordered TITO's...

The food was drenched in butter, cream and oil....no matter the dish, it was like eating a stick of butter.


Won't be back...

Food was fabulous, Service was as expected, the restaurant was very loud and cold... The first point of check in was the worst... We were 30 minutes early for reservation, restaurant had many tables open and few people in bar or restaurant, we asked to be seated early, hostess checked with Manager who looked up at us and said “You’ll have to wait for your reservation” with a bit of an attitude... Did not suggest waiting in the bar but we did because there were many open seats at the bar.
Bottom line is we waited like children following rules and there was no reason other than control by this Woman. When we went to the desk at our reservation time we were seated and there were still many tables open (7:30) reservation... If the food wasn’t so good, we would not go back, our hope is the reception is better... Hostess was nice Manager had the attitude

Food, drinks, service and atmosphere all perfect. I loved my meal. Peruvian sea bass with charred vegetables. I balked at the price, but after I tasted there was no disputing the quality of fish. Best I’ve ever had. Best restaurant in Huntington Beach.

Went for a special occasion - 13th wedding anniversary. Our server David was very gracious, helpful and attentive. We both ordered fish (halibut and opakapaka) which was excellent, which was excellent except my order got a little confused in the kitchen and came out as another fish entree. David’s recovery was excellent - my wife’s dish was kept warm while they straightened mine out in a timely way. Her halibut ended up being a tad overdone, but still delicious, mine was delicious as well. Points to David for the recovery. Overall, the meal and experience was excellent, but the noise level is a bIt much if you’re looking for a quiet dinner. Points to Bluegold - they comped us an aperitif and desert for the anniversary and as apology for the kitchen mix-up.

Sadly some of the food we ordered were overly salty, and I eat salty food like no big deal, but this time was absolutely excessive! We had brunch next door at LSXO and were told that they’re the same owner/chef but the food next door was absolutely delicious!

It was a great meal. When customers share an entre or salad , I wish the kitchen would just portion it on two plates. Our lovely server, Allison served our shared salad for us when we asked. We did have to cut and halve our entre and that’s not something diners want to handle. So easy to drop food from plate to plate.

Not being able to leave mushrooms out of the halibut suggested it was pre-made. Like to think I’m getting a meal cooked to order.

Our server and the food was great!

Service was very slow, took along time for drinks and food. Coffee was barely warm , coffee creamer was served in a dirty container. Food was expensive for the quality. Hash browns were greasy, seafood omelette had hardly any seafood or any other filing. Had to ask numerous times for water refills

The dinner and service was excellent...however...I was seated at an "end" table for 2 which was right next to a large group party (probably at least 25 - 30 people) and they were standing "right next to me" and bumping me while I ate my dinner and "tried" to talk to my friend seated across from me (it was too loud to even hear her). If the large group had been "seated," I would have been able to enjoy my dinner more. However...they were all "standing" and walking around...so they kept bumping me and standing next to me eating and drinking. The noise level was "so high" that I couldn't even hear my dinner guest. Maybe coming to the restaurant on a Friday night during December wasn't such a good idea?
