    Food and ambiance were very good. My four stars is because two of the main items we wanted to eat they were out of. Great dinner date location.

    The tower is the way to go..the portions are generous, each level with accompanying sauces...my favorite item (besides the wine) were the Mushroom Dumplings. These are not to be missed.

    Blue Point Coastal has been a "go to" for us for many years whenever we visit San Diego. I realize that November is a slow month for restaurants, but they seemed to be a tad off this time. Nothing specific - just not quite what it used to be.

    On a Saturday night the restaurant was not packed. Our drinks took about 20 minutes to come out and our waiter forgot about our 2 appetizers that we had ordered. We sat for 30 minutes waiting just to be told our dinner was coming soon?? He realized he messed up and brought out a complimentary appetizer after our entrees came. The complimentary amuse bouche from the chef was delicious, complimentary bread basket was soft and scrumptious and we all enjoyed our entrees. We all agreed that although the food is good, we won’t be coming back here anytime soon.

    Beautiful location, fantastic wait staff. My crab bisque was delicious but the grilled macho tacos were lacking flavor. Hubby loved his king crab, most around us had lobster. Very expensive but then again hubby got the crab legs

    The food was very good, the service excellent and the ambiance very nice. I would recommend that the website should be corrected or updated in regards to the happy hour specials. Advertised special prices on oysters and some other items were not given out on our billing. We were there during the hours posted on the website to receive those prices, but were not given them. We thought maybe because it was Sunday, but reviewing the website it is 7 days a week. Servers were friendly and knowledgeable, overall very nice!

    Creative and delicious meal! Lobster bisque was creamy, swordfish on couscous with ragout was a wonderful blend of tastes and my companion's scallops were the tenderest, sweetest scallops I've ever had. They were atop mashed sweet potatoes and julienned apples were placed on top.

    We have eaten at Blue Point many times and will not go back. the food was not up to the standards of our past meals here and the service was incredibly slow. The restaurant was not busy enough and did not seem to be understaffed to have the poor service we had.

    10 years ago last night, we dined at Blue Point. That night was special for several reasons. There were Hari Krishna’s on one corner, a prophet on the corner next to our outdoor table, and LOTS of young people on pub crawls. The highlight of the evening was the crazed man on the balcony across the street with a bloody costume & a chain saw at the haunted hotel, which has now moved a couple of blocks down the street. Fast forward to two nights ago, our lobster ravioli & spinach salad appies were superb, as were our Ahi tuna & Scottish salmon mains. The highlight of the meal was our sorbet dessert, a trio of lemon, mango & raspberry sorbets, with raspberries & blackberries to boot! Our waiter Brent, was professional & very helpful with recommendations. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal, and considering the restaurant has been in business for 25 years, it’s clear why they’ve been so successful! Hopefully it isn’t another 10 years before we return from the Great White North...👍

    Long time customer but not regular or often. Good reception and seating. Initial waiter contact good and drinks arrived promptly. Although we told him we were not in a hurry, the first course arrived shortly after the cocktails. My wife had the petrole sole which wasn't boned nor was she asked if she wanted it so. I had the shrimp dish which was not nearly as good as I had at the Fish Market a week ago. I ordered a dessert and my wife ordered cappuchino. We waited at least 30 minutes for them to be served and were told the machine was malfunctioning. Overall, it wasn't a memorable experience and nowhere near my recollections of the restaurant.

    Delicious food. Salad, main dish, and dessert were all wonderful. The portions were smaller than what you would get at a family style restaurant, but typical for fine dining. If you are looking for a huge meal where half of it goes home in a doggie bag, this restaurant might not be your style. The service was top notch. Our server, Brent, was very attentive as were other wait staff. The price was typical for fine dining. No complains. I would go there again.

    I went to this restaurant as I use to go here years ago and it was excellent. That was my first mistake. The restaurant was mostly empty on a Friday night and that was my second mistake. The food was very average. The waiter had a very poor attitude and spent several minutes standing behind me telling another waiter whom I assume was new on strategies to get higher gratuities. Why not start with having a great attitude rather then just being friendly when you bring the check? Another nearby large table got up and left. The writing is on the wall here unfortunately.

    Blue Point Coastal is one of our favorite restaurants. The food is superb -- we had the crab-stuffed sole this past Saturday, which was served with a wonderful red rice in very flavorful sauce. Our crab cake appetizer was perfect, and the chopped salad was outstanding. We've been quite pleased with the quality of the wines available by the glass, as well as the number of wines available. Our service was also excellent. The waiter was attentive without being obtrusive, and we had a nice chat with one of the managers who stopped by to say hello and make sure everything was wonderful. We look forward to our next visit there.
