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.

Server was great, however the food didn't arrive until ~30 minutes after ordering. Even the bread appetizer. The clam chowder and the mushroom risotto was delicious. A bit expensive, but I wouldn't mind going back

We love Bluegold for the quality of food. The food was amazing as we remember pre-pandemic. It’s a bit crowded and a bit noisy but still service is good overall. A few improvements noted for management but we still had a great time.

Great place to have lunch with a view of the ocean! I had the Caldo Steamer and it was delicious. The service was also excellent. I’ll definitely be back again for lunch!

This is our favorite place to entertain out of state guests. It has a beautiful view of the ocean and everything on the menu is delicious from bottomless mimosas for brunch, to the seafood and nightly special options you don’t leave hungry. Our waitresses were charming and able to identify the perfect bottle of wine we were in the mood for

Although we live in Huntington Beach, we had not been to Bluegold in a year (for the obvious reason). We were reminded what a wonderful restaurant this is. The service, the food, and the view were even better than we remembered.

A bit disappointed... Took my boyfriend for his bday. We were sat outside in the walk way of the shopping center. Orders were taken fairly quickly however It seemed that we were quickly forgotten by our server. Our food came out via food runners it was hot when I arrived at the table. We had wanted to order more drinks however we saw no server in order to do that. There was a table of 12 seated behind us and they were extremely loud and apparently completely unhappy with service and proceeded to make a scene.The server tried to help them, the manager then came out and walked away from the table frustrated with no issues resolved. We then proceeded to hear the table behind us complain through the rest of our meal about the lack of service.
Our nice quiet dinner experience that we were hoping for was not worth the nearly $300 bill.

My coworkers and I came after frisbee golfing. My only complaint is that two groups got seated before us (without reservation however, our waiter (also POC!) was awesome! The kitchen had a lot of things unavailable (no French toast, no gelato) so our waiter comped dessert.

This would be 5 stars without the initial discrimination! But overall amazing time. The waiter made it a 10/10 experience. Hostess/guy in front could work on being more inclusive towards poc.

Made reservations through Open Table at 7:00PM and my group didn’t get seated until 8:30PM. The host’s explanation didn’t make sense since we were eventually seated at an outside table that was available the entire time (7:00PM).

The food was amazing. The Uni Risotto was especially outstanding. Hats off to the chefs. I would have it again as an entree. Of course, the milk rolls are a must. I would have given the review a five star for service, but the wait for our food & drinks took a while. Our waiter, Irving, was great. I’m sure the restaurant had to get up to speed after just reopening due to Covid. What a wonderful time and experience we had celebrating a birthday, and most of all being able to dine indoors again at a beautiful restaurant with a magnificent view!

restaurant was short staffed . managers were serving tables. they were nice about comping dessert and wine and free rolls. the food was OK but certainly not as good as it should have been. they probably should have waited to reopen.

Service was terrible. The food and drinks came out super slow. We received our appetizers before our drinks. We had early dinner reservations for 5:00pm and it doesn’t appear the restaurant was ready for dinner service. The vases on the table were empty - was that how it was supposed to be? So the tables looked plain. The food was good. We will give it another try because the food was good.

On a Friday business lunch, experience was disappointing. Waiter was not familiar with the menu. Wonder if this place can survive, other popular restaurants seem to be booked solid, but only 10 or so diners here at 12:30.

The menu was a little weird and not sure what possible cuisine it was. A lot of runny eggs on top of dishes. Pricey for sure. The best thing was the pizza that our grandkids had. We won’t go back and we are restaurant fanatics. Not our style.

Went for the Châteaubriand, cooked perfectly, nice sides and 3 sauces. A few more ounces would have been perfect. Will be back in a couple of weeks for sure. Priced right for two. Small enough amount for a big guy to eat on his own or just enough for smaller couples appetites.

We were pleasantly surprised with Blue Gold. We spent the weekend at the Pasea and we decided to give it a try for Easter Brunch since it was close by! I tried a great cocktail ...something with beach in the name. We tried these salted rolls with a butter and honey dip and they were really good. My husband had ceviche that was delicious and a side of the best Tater tots we have ever had. I had the OG pizza which was their take on a margarita and we loved it! I’m really happy we gave Blue Gold a try it was delicious!

This is my favorite restaurant at Pacific City. When the shades are up, you can enjoy the view from most tables. The milk rolls are a must! No matter what else I order, I always order the milk rolls. If you like your cocktail spicy, order the El Chapo. It has a nice kick. On my most recent visit, since they reopened due to the Pandemic, I tried the ceviche for the first time. It was fresh and tasty. I have also tried the burger, pork chop and rotisserie chicken on other visits. Nothing has ever disappointed me.

Was super excited to return to BlueGold but the experience could not have been worse. Dishes and silverware were dirty. Service and attentiveness were terrible. A party of 4 came in and we had to watch atleast 5 employees bending over backwards for them while we could not even get a clean fork. $375.00 for two people. They said they validated our parking but we had to pay $16.00 to leave parking structure. We used to really enjoy this restaurant. The bartender said we were not the only ones disappointed snd complaining. We dined at 545 pm on a Sunday. Not the same Blue-gold as before Covid.
