Great service and food.
Enjoyed the food and the ambiance.
The food was delicious. The staff was attentive. We enjoyed our dinner.
The food was tasty, the service was good altho the poor waiter was so busy there wasn't much time for personal service - but he did try. Tables were crushed together as close as possible so it was very noisy and crowded, definately not a pleasant ambiance. The menu was quite limited. For the high price I expect a much nicer ambiance so I probably won't be back.
Just no good
Excellent fresh seafood and raw bar. Cooked items are searched without a lot of goopy sauce!
Another great meal at Blue Island Oyster & Seafood. Look forward to my next visit!
Shane was amazing! Good food and oysters. The dining room was cool and the drink menu was extensive! Thank you so much! I be back to see you in May
Very good food and service. A bit loud so it's a better fit if you want to go there for a casual dinner.
Our waiter forgot our order and didn't come back for almost 20 min and we received no compansation for the almost 20min late app and the fact he forgot. Overall the food was delicious
Great food, excellent service. We will come again for sure.
The food was absolutely delicious. We both had the swordfish, but 2 different dishes. The fish was moist, tender and flavorful. The accompanying sides were fantastic. We will definitely be back.
Tried a variety of oysters and they were all fantastic. Service from Shane was excellent and the food was outstanding.
Recommended seafood restaurant in Denver's Cherry Creek area. Food and service were very good. Rather noisy a bit loud, but tables along the sides may be better.
First time to the Blue Island based on recommendation from a friend. We made a reservation for a Friday night which as a good thing. Place was full. Go for the oysters but also try the varied other seafood options. Loved the clam pasta dish. My spouse ordered th scallop and gnocchis dish which was ok. The scallops were perfect but the remainder was subpar. Next time she would order the simple “plain” scallops offering. Will go back and try a few different items... after the oysters!
Great night out with excellent service and wonderful food!
Blue Island has a great happy hour! We go there often for their HH menu-50% off wines by the glass, $1 oysters, and an extensive small bites menu! Our favorites are the knuckle sandwich, crispy brussel sprouts and togarashi fries!
Great meal and service!!!!
We always enjoy the fresh selection of oysters. Some of the items on the menu seem a bit pricey.
Great happy hour offerings and prices. Excellent oysters, blackened mahi-mahi was superb, as were the crab cakes. Consistently impressive
We had a fabulous time and a fabulous meal for my husband’s birthday. Darwin is the best, he always is a wonderful server and seems to care about his customers! Thanks Darwin.
Great happy hour. Wonderful daily specials. Nice place to dine with friends.
We're regulars for Happy Hour, nice service and enjoy their seafood.
Everyone we interacted with was nice and very respectful. Food was great we had lobster rolls and were perfect ordered some a la carte oysters and tasted fresh. Overall we had a good experience the only down side was I forgot to put money in the parking meter and received a ticket, but not the restaurants fault it was my own
Excellent seafood and trendy bar, great casual spot, very lively scene. Excellent waitstaff, hostess and barkeep, and the fresh seafood is ...fabulous!!
Really just average. They ran out of crab legs during happy hour 430p.
Always a pleasure dining at BIO. The fried clams are the best and the only place they can be bought. I did have a problem with the menus. Too large and heavy. I would suggest going back to original menus and pricing.
Mussels - garlic and wine - were very bland
Left a bad taste
First timers and had great reviews, but Halibut and Ono were not tender and tastless (overcooked? poor quality fish?). Mashed potatoes side was cold, when sent back came back luke warm at best.
Enjoyed the cocktails and Calamari-
Great evening at Blue Island Oyster Bar & Seafood celebrating a birthday. This was my first visit and I was definitely pleased. Shane, our waiter, was fun, yet professional, and provided great suggestions when asked. I will definitely go back, and soon!
This review was hard for me to write because I have been to blue oyster multiple times in the past. The food is always delicious (especially the lobster Mac and cheese) and usually the service matches. This night we consistently had trouble even getting our waitress to come and check on our table even as people were joining. Our drinks came out after our appetizers and we had ordered them before we ordered the appetizers. The food was good, the ambiance was good, and usually this isn’t an issue and we will likely be back again.
Great food! Good service. Was nice to find a new place in Cherry Creek.
Service was slow and main dish was dry (salmon)...
Shrimp were advertised as jumbo but were medium and dry at best-undersized fish portion served first, later replaced by full sized portion, but both were dry and tasteless. Oysters may be good. Did not try them. Fish has been frozen too long. Dry and over cooked.
Manager tried to placate me me with a free well cocktail on next visit. Should have comped my dinner. There will be no more visits.
We go here often and it's always good. Both the food and service are great.
What a fun way to have lunch! They have a lot of small plates, either to have for yourself or to share. We enjoyed many different items, from calamari to tuna tartare to curried cauliflower. Everything tasted great, and the service was excellent. I had been there several times for dinner, but now I think it is my favorite place for lunch as well.
Really noisy but the food was excellent as was the service. It was a very fair deal for restaurant week and renewed our interest in a restaurant we hadn't been to for some time.
We had such a lovely time. It was my first time eating Oysters, our waiter was so patient with me, gave me some great recommendations. We loved it! We will definitely be going back.
Went for late lunch/happy hour. Fresh clams and oysters. Good fare. One of our party had mobility issues and the staff were super accommodating. Recommend for pleasant lunch or happy hour
