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.

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.

Wonderful oysters at Happy Hour and the stuffed quash blossoms so delicious.
We tried a locally distilled Rum that was excellent.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

The server was great (thank you Alexandra!). We came for Restaurant Week to try something new. Unfortunately the service could not save the food. The lobster bisque was a tad bit salty and the lobster risotto was shy of being raw. The grain was still kind of hard. Tasty, but the grain ruined it. Nevertheless, I'll give it another shot.
