Birthday celebration. Great evening! Great food, drinks and service!
We’ll be back!
We met friends to celebrate the contract on their house. Enjoyed the happy hour menu immensely! Outstanding oysters. Wonderful salmon sliders, fried clams, skinny fries and blood orange olive cake for dessert! The blood orange margarita is to die for!
Had a yummy dinner to celebrate a birthday. Although we have been here before, it was surprising how empty the place was. Server was awesome and fish was excellent.
Amazing food and drinks! It was a special occasion so we didn't mind the price tag but wouldn't be able to do it often. Service could have been more attentive but the food was amazing enough that we all walked away very happy.
Appreciated the extra effort by our server to provide a comfortable outdoor patio experience.
Monday night dollar oysters, yum. Service was quite slow considering nothing we ordered required cooking.
We ate outside and were plenty warm because of the heat lamps. It was a really enjoyable evening. The $0.99 oysters were a plus for the Monday night special. I had a lobster roll and it was very good. My husband had two dozen oysters that he enjoyed. I recommend the clam chowder.
I dine here at least monthly, & often order the Elderflower Basil Martini. I asked to have it extra cold. When it arrived it was barely cold & the smallest portion I’ve ever received. When I pointed out to our waiter, noting other martinis being served,he shrugged & said he ordered it cold. I asked if they could address, & when it came back it was cold & watered down. Ultimately the food was good, I ordered wine & he took off the bill. I appreciated this courtesy but the waiters attitude was disappointing. I’ll return & hope the staff gets a bit more training.
Had an absolutely lovely evening made all the better with Katherine as our server! Starting with a dozen of your oysters, we enjoyed the sword fish and salmon Oscar - perfect!
James Bushart is amazing, we really appreciated the personal attention
The food was delicious. We got a variety of surf-turf and all was delicious. Service fast and friendly.
Happy Hour menu and service were absolutely great. Thanks to our server Paul.
It was my partner’s birthday and our server made the meal feel so special for us! She treated us to a dessert on the house and helped me pull off a surprise at the end of the meal. The manager also checked in on us and even offered to take our picture. I couldn’t have asked for better service and hospitality :)
We found the food and service superb. The mussels are fresh and tasty. I had the Chilean Bass and it was done to perfection. We can't wait to go back.
Food and service excellent as always. So noisy had to shout to hear each other. Too many high tables now. Lower ones the most comfortable by far. We were lucky to get the last one.
Great raw seafood bar!!
Had a great time. Food was excellent, drinks were good., service was timely.. Roasted oysters were very fresh and was very impressed with their sea bass entree. The bill got expensive but all expectations were exceeded so I'm happy to spend double compared to red lobster or other inferior sea food restaurants. This place is definitely worth the price!
My husband and I came here to celebrate our wedding/elopement on the day of (wedding dress and all) because it's our favorite restaurant. They made our experience so special! We were welcomed with excellent service and excellent food and drinks-- Best. Seafood. Ever! Coming from a pair of Southern Californians, these are the tastiest fish tacos we've ever had. We love the ambience here and the staff is so friendly, helpful, and personable. Thank you for kicking our marriage off to a great start!
These people really know fish and how to prepare it. Best seafood I've had in all the many many years I've lived in Denver.
Staff was wonderful.
Made us fell welcome from the moment we stepped in.
The restaurant was fully occupied, very busy, yet service was terrific and the food was served, still hot and delicious. Plus the hostess gave those of us whose tables were very close more room by turning four small tables into one larger for four, giving the other two tables more distance. Bravo Friday evening team---all were working together.
It was a great evening with a friend! The service was great, the waitress gave us great recommendations for wine! Enjoyable Happy Hour, food was awesome!
Blue Island was great! Our waitress was very helpful and polite assisting my party, who had never tried oysters before, with recommendations. The food was superb, with very fresh oysters and seafood, and the wine that was recommended paired excellently. It was more than a bit noisy, which made conversing at the table hard, but absolutely worth it. Can't wait to go back!
Lauren was a phenomenal server and made our dining experience so amazing! 10/10 recommend this place!
We have been to Blue Island many times and always enjoy it. My husband almost always gets the paella, as he did this time. Even though the server was very excited that the paella included swordfish, it was disappointing and not as flavorful as it has been in the past. We'll try it again, but still disappointing. Always love the clam chowder.
Service was amazing! Our server was attentive, friendly, and recommended some great drinks. Food was delicious, but a bit overpriced. The manager came around to make sure we were happy with our orders. Can't wait to check out their happy hour.
We had dinner at Blue Island on Veterans Day. Brooke took care of us. Brooke was outstanding. Prompt, knowledgeable and pleasant. She made our evening! We started withe the Thai Calamari. It was delicious, with just the right amount of heat. The oysters, as usual, were great. We should have gotten a second dozen. I had the Lobster Roll. It's a classic. I asked for a little slaw and a little of the fries. I think they gave me a full order of each. Yes, please!. My wife had the taco plate which was also tasty. All around, we had a great dinner.
Everything was excellent accept for the noise level was off the charts it was so loud you could not hear each other speak you could bearly hear the waiter
Brian was awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We were celebrating Veterans Day and the restaurant gave my husband a free entree! Amazing food and service. Will definitely be back!
A little disappointed, advertised stone crab and even gave a $10 coupon to make a reservation. Drove all the way from Boulder, because we love stone crab only to be told when we arrived there all out and having troubling getting it. I understand with all the shortage of deliveries, but they shouldn't send out emails to get people to come and don't have the product their advertising. Still love the place just dissapointed
Hope was such an amazing server! Great attitude and service!
Fantastic service. Great staff. Awesome oysters and other offerings. Cocktails are yummy but pricey.
Greeted by friendly host. Great service and fantastic lunch. What a pleasant place to dine. Can’t say enough good things about them.
Oysters were great. Food was good. Shrimp was a little over cooked but scallops were perfect. Service was just really slow. Waitress just wasn’t as attentive as we liked. Even after place emptied out it took awhile to get our check.
Excellent service and attentiveness of staff. We ordered numerous items from the happy hour menu and everything was delicious.
Awesome food. I did call before arriving asking availability of stone crab. Was told yes. But when we ordered it was not available. Still every thing we ordered was excellent.
Fantastic meal! Service was great. We had three types of oysters and they were great.
Upon entering, Smell of fresh fish in the air was reassuring. Restaruant on a Thursday at 12:30 was 1/3 full. Hostess was very friendly and accommodating. Our server come right over. I indicated I had a coupon up front. He seemed a bit annoyed and then left it on the table for the whole meal. (If you don’t want to deal with customers redeeming coupons, don’t mail them out).
We placed cocktail orders which took way too long. The waiter came to take our food order before delivering our drinks. He said the bartender is “in the weeds”. Our drinks finally arrived and they were delicious.
Next my 6 oysters arrived. We waited 5 more minutes for my wife’s clam chowder to arrive. Both delicious. I looked over and saw the bartender was also shucking oysters. That explains the delay on drinks.
Our sandwiches and fries showed up on time and they were also yummy. Asked for the check.
Anyway, we like the food and cocktails here. We will likely go back. I just hope they can find more help.
Food: it's tough bc the oystersbwere great but we ordered the octopus for the octopus but it's so over powered by chorizo and potatoes. Plated ddly and a mirror recipe of Humboldt who's had this dish for much longer.
Drinks: good wine- over priced by $3-4 a glass so for regulars the hh of 40% off is not impressive..BF wasn't impressed by the beer selection.
All in all I like Blue Island. Interested to see how the soon to be lobster bar competes
