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.

It took a long time for us to be seated, like 1 hour after we showed up for our reservation time; the waiter did not write our orders and missed 2 of our orders and it was hard to flagged him down; the service was very poor; foods was very good, but did not compensate for poor service.

Everything was great about this place. If you're looking for a nice place without paying Mastros prices this is perfect. Friendly service and great food.

Bluegold is one of our favorite restaurants in the area. In the past we always had excellent service and amazing food. It was our first time back after the coronavirus shutdown and we were disappointed in the service which was exceptionally slow and inattentive. Within minutes of ordering a server brought out our main course, which our main server took away after he realized our starter had not been brought out yet. Then we waited another 40 minutes for the kids' mac & cheese and our starter to arrive. That whole time our server did not check in with us, and did not apologize for the wait. The food here is really good, so I'm hoping the service is just rusty after being shut down for so long.

The hostess sat my husband and when I went to the host stand to ask where he was seated, she said he wasn’t there and there was no reservation in my name. Ordered a $75 prime rib, that was cooked well done and they said it’s only cooked one way and that’s all the kitchen had. Not pink at all like a normal prime rib. Employees take their breaks by smoking and sitting at the entrance to the restaurant.

Great food! The only issue we had was that service was a little slow. I think it may be because of reduced staff during the pandemic. Overall, the food was wonderful.

Bluegold food and service is always top notch. Santino was our waiter and he was amazing. My only suggestion, let the workers take off the masks. We can't hear them very well and they shouldn't have to wear them the entire time during a shift.

Great food and service. We particularly enjoyed the charcuterie board. This was our first restaurant outing after the COVID hysteria relented a bit, and Bluegold did a fantastic job with social distancing, masks and ongoing (but discrete) disinfection of surfaces.

Excellent food and view! Server was really personable! We had the omelette and hash browns and corned beef hash. Presentation and flavor were all spot on - in fact the thin toast and creamed butter and jam were one of the best things I’ve put in my mouth!

This is such a nice dining experience. The view is to die for and the atmosphere can set any mood (girls night out or romantic dinner). I had the seafood omelet. It was tasty and chock-full of seafood. They did not skimp. It was accompanied by a mixed greens salad with the most amazing vinaigrette dressing. It was a good brunch but not sure I'll order the seafood omelet again. The egg was a little rubbery. I was expecting fluffy. My husband had the eggs Benedict. It was really delicious and perfectly made. The generously thick cut of bacon and mini muffin were amazing. The milk rolls are and absolute must! You cannot leave Bluegold with having their melt-in-your-mouth milk rolls with butter and honey. You will not regret it!!

Due to these unprecedented times I’m sure it was hard for them to know how to staff and service was a little slow. But still fantastic food and service. Will go again.

Bluegold is a beautiful restaurant overlooking PCH with a view of the beach near the pier. The food was good but took over an hour to arrive - although this was an unusual day as protests were nearby they were contemplating closing early. We had the halibut and it was delicious and juicy, full of flavor. The ambiance is great and you have guests dressed in both casual ware and others dressed fashionably. Parking was behind the restaurant in conjunction with the mall type parking. Our server was was very nice and informative and we were not rushed through at all. This is a great place to go for a birthday lunch. And the lemon vinaigrette was absolutely great! Will definitely be going back.

The restaurant just opened, post “shelter in place”. Service was great, good adherence to social distancing, masks and gloves. One out of three meals was good. Our take was that they must not have had all the ingredients on hand to make the food taste like it used to.
