Lackluster service. Crab cakes were fishy, if the steak was any colder I would have sent it back, it was barely warm, lobster stone cold, had to ask for better - the waiter brought it in what I assume is a charming warmer that holds a candle but there wasn't one and it was stone cold. If it sat a few minutes more it would have hardened. The waiter (Craig I believe) was more interested in flirting with another server than waiting on our table. I have no issue paying fine dining prices. I will pay whatever it takes to get a good meal. I will pay even more for an exceptional meal. But I would rather eat at home than have a mediocre experience while paying for it.
Excellent dinner. Ordered the Chilean Sea Bass and the recommended drink pairing which I believe was a whiskey honey cocktail. Ambience and service was excellent as well.
Been coming here for 15 years, but I was really disappointed with this meal. The valet service is no longer there, which was really annoying on St. Patrick's Day. We sat down and advised our waiter that we had a showtime to meet, and he was aware. But virtually every service visit was delivered by someone other than our waiter, like he was too busy for a party of two. The lobster bisque was delicious, but the sea bass was unimpressive - the fish seemed "mushy" and didn't seem very fresh, not what I'd expect for $44. Then, while my daughter and I were having an involved conversation, I was interrupted about 4 times in two minutes to pick up plates that weren't done (does nobody know how to read a table? Hint: If the knife and fork are placed together, the diner is finished; if the utensils are crossed, they are not!). When I did see "our" waiter, I asked for the bill. When I saw the bill, I discovered this "4% surcharge" on the bottom. When the manager came to pick up the bill, I asked if the surcharge was for, he said for increased wages and other costs. I reasoned that if we'd been sitting there having a desert instead of a full meal, the costs would have been the same but the surcharge would have been far less, so their rationale for the surcharge as a flat rate of the bill was rather disingenuous, and that restaurants have been raising the prices of their food items ever since there were restaurants so "why would you be any different?". He removed it.
We paid and departed, but it's clear that Blue Point has lowered itself to cater to Gaslamp tourists who don't know better. I won't be coming back. What a shame.
Great service and hospitality. Food is very good and happy hour offerings are great.
Our server took excellent care of us, his recommendations were on point and the food was outstanding. The chef’s special was thoughtfully executed, light and tender Tongol tuna accompanied with rich smoked salmon mashed potatoes and a chutney stuffed pepper. A-MAZ-ING
We had Sea Bass and the Ahi Tuna with Lemon Pepper shrimp. The Sea Bass and the shrimp were both overcooked. The shrimp somewhat tough and the bass dry. For these prices the food should be perfect. Our waiter was attentive, but our entrees were very slow in arriving.
Reservation was for 1,000 Open Tsble points. Why did I only get 100...?
Can you pls correct this?
This is our fourth of fifth trip to Blue Point. It's become our standard "go to" place for a nice seafood dinner while in San Diego. It's not inexpensive, but fairly priced for what you get. The Lobster Bisque is the best we've found in the area.
Delicious. Great service, nice visit from chef
Phil was our waiter and was outstanding. The espresso machine was broken however and coffee drinks were cold. They should have been taken off the bill.
The staff was very attentive and the food was delicious. I had the poki appetizer and it was enough for a meal. Pricing was reasonable, nice wine selection.
The wrong dishes were delivered at first and then when corrected it was obvious that mine was just kept warm while the others were corrected and after a few bites my dinner was cool; Very disappointed.
My husband and I were visiting from out of town and Blue Point was recommended by friends. We had a wonderful dining experience. Our waiter suggested the Tempura squash blossoms for an appetizer, and they were special. Great vibe, good wine, great service, wonderful meal. I hope I have an the opportunity to return!
I usually judge restaurants by how they treat a women dining alone. They totally passed the test. A little problem with my reservastion when they tried to seat me with another party, but after that it improved. Great oysters, Scottish Salmon, creme burle, and a great clasdic martini. Cant wait to come back with my husband.
Excellent food and service. The tables were a bit cramped.
We chose this restaurant based upon its 4.5 star rating on Open Table. It was a lovely spot with a wonderful waiter...and it ends there! Not even one dish of the 10 or so served, including appetizers and entrees was even in a 3 star league. If not for Phil, our waiter, the whole evening would have been a bust.
Good food, great service
Wonderful oysters at Happy Hour and the stuffed quash blossoms so delicious.
We tried a locally distilled Rum that was excellent.
Food was good. Service acceptable
Delicious food, great service. Also recommend the happy hour
My latest experience here reminded me that even on an off day Blue Point is still good. Service got off to a slow start (I know there was a convention of mortgage bankers in town but there is always some type of convention going on) and it was only a Tuesday night! Still, 20 minutes to get a cocktail in my hand seems like a missed opportunity at best. With the exception of my entree which was only fair (Sea Bass), everything tasted great and was presented beautifully. I guess we're all entitled to an off day once in a while. Still, with all the other amazing dining options available in the Gas Lamp District, I may not just hurry back any time soon.
Wonderful experience. The waiter was terrific at explaining dishes and making recommendations. We thought it would be louder than it actually was when we walked in, so if you think that when you enter you may be surprised. We were sat in a booth. Very comfortable. Food fantastic and NOT your typical teeny tiny portions. Good size portions that come with a vegetable which is nice. Oysters were amazing!
Food and service were excellent, but way too expensive, like many restaurants.
I hate giving bad reviews but as long is this isn't public, i thought it may help out. I had shells in my lobster risotto in almost every bite, my fiance ordered his steak med rare and it was very rare. They also forgot about the birthday cake I requested ahead of time through email, that the manager confirmed they would do without me saying something. The happy hour and oysters were really good though!
Excellent food, great service and everyone was very friendly!
Always reliable. Great appetizers and seafood entrees that make you look forward to your next meal here even before you're done.
First, this place is lovely so you expect a fine dining experience. The service was outstanding and we started off with oysters and cocktails. So far so good. However, the rest of the meal was boring. The sea bass had no flavor. The ahi tuna and shrimp were confusing. The shrimp are fried a dark brown and dry and didn't fit the plate. The tuna was just OK. So thank you to Ryan who made the experience enjoyable. Maybe you just go the bar for cocktails and find another place for dinner.
Great food, and even better service! Prime location made it easy to walk to. Took
my work team to celebrate a good conference while in town and was not disappointed.
Will definitely return!
Food was great, service was good. For the price we paid, service should be top notch. Over priced in my opinion but for the touristy location people will pay for the good food I guess. I probably wouldn't go again since you can get similar food with better service at the price point we paid.
Excellent service and very good food. Beautiful setting. Dessert was amazing (cafe gourmand)!!
I have always like Blue Pointe. We have been coming for years. This time was a bit disappointing. But usually it’s good
Great food and drink. Started with a proper old fashion. Exceptional drink. Enjoyed 1/2 dozen oysters, a simple green salad and sea bass for the main course. No complaints here. A great meal.
Food was well prepared and looked beautiful but was boring.
Anniversary dinner. The food and atmosphere were great. Service lacked a little but we still had a great time.
Best food I've had in San Diego. Semiprivate comfortable booths, good oldies music, professional friendly waiters and, again, excellent food.
This was our third visit to Blue Point. We have never been let down. The food and service are exceptional.
We went here and opted for the restaurant week menu. Food was well prepared and very tasty. The tableside bread was warm and tasty and the service by all was very good. Will eat here again.
Awesome food & great experience! The seafood was amazing :)
A great way to experience Restaurant Week. The Cioppino was good, though a challenge to eat. Our waiter, Jonathan, was absolutely excellent!!
Peking Duck was tough. Worst I have ever had.
King Crab Half order very small approx. 1/3lb
We were here to celebrate a birthday. Not impressed. Service was average. won't be back
I would only use this restaurant for business where looks are important and value is not.
