They need heat lamps. Our waiters was awesome! Great food with Passbook discount.
Great oysters and drinks! Really liked the roasted oyster. Servers were great too.
I enjoyed the Restaurant Week Menu. I also had oysters and they were fresh and delicious. The dirty martini and Vesper were also sooo good!
We are obsessed with the Brussels sprouts. Everything was great though. Will be back when indoor dining reopens!
Outstanding service, food is amazing. I love this place, always my choice for a great meal.
Came out for Denver restaurant week and it didn’t disappoint! The oysters were great, clam chowder was VERY well done, drink menu was sophisticated. Lobster roll could have been a little larger and more flavorful for $28.99 but I guess that’s what you get in Denver.
This place is always outstanding. Our favorite in town!
Lauren recommended delicious oysters. The fish sandwich was AMAZING & light. The fries crispy and delicious. Surf and turf salad was hearty and satisfying.
Overall a great restaurant that I'd be happy to dine at again - the seafood was fresh and cocktails were excellent. A bit overpriced for the vibe and portions but I guess that's what you pay for when trying to find good seafood in a landlocked state. Don't get me wrong, the food is great but I wasn't expecting well over double digits for two people.
We always get the same male server and he is just not a good. I’m not sure why he still works there because he seems miserable and is not friendly or helpful until he brings the bill. The first time I thought maybe he was just having a bad day but obviously not if we had the same experience with him months later.
Great experience at this restaurant. The seafood are excellent except the grilled octopus which was too “heavy” for us. It was not the Spanish octopus I came to expect. But overall, everything else was excellent.
My husband and I decided to do a date night for restaurant week and Blue Island Oyster Bar & Seafoods menu options sounded amazing! We are so glad we went there! The food was great and the service was top notch! Not only were our bellies satisfied but we had such a wonderful experience! We’ll be back soon!
Blue Island was delicious as always. It is our go-to seafood restaurant in Denver. The service is always great and the food is fresh.
Went for Restaurant week. The food was good and service was amazing. With everything happening with COVID, they did amazing with getting people in and out to make people's reservation times.
Had never been before. Food was delicious, service great! We will definitely be back
Excellent swordfish, shrimp tacos, and clams. Great happy hour.
Happy hour menu is best value.
Be sure to make a reservation because space is limited.
Thai calamari is fabulous
Will definitely return.
One of the best meals I've had in Denver. Nice quiet little place down in Cherry Creek, booked this particular night because the were doing a Veteran's Day special offering a free meal for Vet's. The food did not disappoint, I was torn between the paella and the grilled scallops so I asked the waiter and without hesitation he said the scallops. The flavor's this dish had took me to a whole different level on the taste meter. The crispy gnocchi I don't think I will order them any other way again they were simply outstanding. We will def go to this place again they had so many dishes we were trying to decide from. Thank you for your amazing hospitality towards our Veterans on their day !!!
Good food, good service
Amazing food and service!!
Great happy hour specials!!
This is one of our favorite restaurants. We have always had an excellent meal every time. It looks like they are doing everything within their control to keep us safe during COVID.
This place was fabulous. The food fantastic, loved the fresh oysters and the sea scallops delicious! Our waitress was wonderful too!
Gem of a restaurant, cute, little, delicious seafood. We've lived in San Diego and on East Coast so we have good reference points. Many yummy choices on menu, this last time we ate oysters, lobster roll, fish and chips and added special stone crab claws. Their frites and cole slaw are also very good. One of our top 2 favorites in Denver.
Great food! They have a great happy hour menu with some really good values. I recommend the Thai Calamari and the tuna tacos. If you’re a Bloody Mary drinker, theirs are awesome!
Consistently good food! Never disappointed! Hope was our server. She is very personable and considerate. Very knowledgeable about the menu as well.
First time. It was really great. Friendly staff, delicious food, quite setting. Very impressed.
I'm sorry to do this and, in fact, never in 15 years have I posted a negative review of this sort but equally, have to be honest. I do believe that everyone, especially these days, deserves a second chance and we did so but this time was actually worse. From a condescending server who must have wanted to turn the table within the half-hour (3 visits within the first 8 minutes of being sat, when I'm still holding the menu and discussing it with my dining partner) followed by truly patronizing attitude. Beyond that, paying $100+ to basically fill-up on a potato side (very tasty by the way and the only fair portion size on the dish) is poor value-for-money. An entree that is minuscule and for my partner, both minuscule and dry (salmon). Only 2 beer on draft, 1 local, 1 from Michigan (we've got over 250 breweries in Colorado, way to support the local market). And so forth. Truly sorry about this, we had loved this restaurant and went regularly under previous ownership but, obviously, we won't be back.
Hello Noname I'm very sorry you have had sub par experiences at Blue Island- We strive to do much better than that no matter what circumstances we are presented with and I truly hope you accept my apology. I have been the owner and operator since we opened 5 years ago and have a very long standing management, service and kitchen team so I'm sorry about the confusion in change of ownership. We all would like to make this right for- Please call me directly at the restaurant. --_Sean_
Excellent service. Wonderful food and cocktail menu. Great variety of oysters, loved seeing a white Bordeaux on the wine list!
The happy hour menu is great. The food was very good but our service could have been better.
Hope was our server and she was outstanding!!
The menu had so much that sounded good and the food we decided on was great!!! Oysters were fresh & tasty especially the roasted oysters! Also, the blood orange margarita was excellent!
I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE their Sunday happy hour. Our server was amazing. We spent about 40 minutes drinking drinks before ordering and he didn't give us any issues. We ended up ordering more food and drinks when the rest of our party arrived and OMG everything was absolutely delicious. We got 4 dozen beautifully presented oysters (2 dozen were upgraded free of charge due to a shortage--yum yum yum thank you Taylor!), mussels, chowder, fries and cocktails. Thank you so much for bringing us some joy during this time!
Great food and ambience
Great happy hour on Sundays.
A lot to choose from.
Great experience. Wonderful food and terrific service!
I love this place, the food is always so yummy and the service is really fantastic. We always have Hope take care of us, she is the best!
Went there for a romantic date night to celebrate a birthday. The food was delicious and we loved the half off bottles of wine. The oysters, lobster mac, and octopus were the standouts. The crab cake was underwhelming. Portions are very small for the price, FYI. Overall, good food and nice ambiance. We will definitely be back.
A great spot for SunDay Funday. A nice array of food and YUMMY beverages too.
I will be back.
Was there for a birthday dinner and everything was great. The food and the service was amazing. Would recommend for special occasion dinners or when you want fresh oysters different from any other traditional restaurant.
My daughter & I enjoyed a very tasty dinner starting with a dozen oysters, Caesar salad and excellent specialty entrees - sea bass & prosciutto wrapped scallops! Our server Brooke was very good and it was a bustling atmosphere while still keeping tables distanced.
