Blue Point Coastal Cuisine Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
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.
We arrived and the server assistant came to give us water and tell us the server would be with us shortly. It was at least 5 minutes before anyone came to our table, a gentleman whom may be a supervisor came to ask if anyone had gotten our drink order or not. A few minutes later the server finally came. She was pleasant and informed us of the specials for the evening including the soups and such.
My date ordered the sea bass and I ordered the scallops. When the food arrived, my date received a yellowtail, not the sea bass. They took both plates back to the kitchen and said they would bring the correct order out ASAP. A while later the plates came out again, correct this time, however, it seemed as if the scallops I ordered had just sat there while they cooked her meal correctly because the scallops were hardly warm, not even close to hot. I was very hungry by that time and didn’t complain, so I ate the meal. The scallops dinner was actually pretty good, but would have been great if it were warmer or preferably, hot. For the price, we probably should have complained, but we were hungry and the plates had gone back once already. Unfortunately my date didn’t really enjoy the sea bass so she ate about half of it and had some of my scallops.
The server apologized for the wrong fish coming out but that was it. The manager or supervisor never came to apologize, he just asked how everything was, and we just said good because we didn’t want to complain given things had already been screwed up once. We left kind of bummed because we had been looking forward to this dinner for a few days and didn’t have the best experience with the wrong fish, then the cold meal... it pushed our dinner longer than expected and just threw off the rest of the evening. We’ll probably give the restaurant a second chance, because mistakes happen...but for the price, the experience should have been much better.
The restaurant was nice and clean though.
Long wait between appetizer and main course (bouillabaisse). Broth was not hot. I sent it back and waiter apologized. It came back a few minutes later and the broth was no hotter than when it left. I let it go but clearly the meal was sitting somewhere before it was brought to the table.
We love Blue Point Coastal. The food is outstanding and the dishes are interesting and well-prepared. The service is always first rate. When the restaurant is full and the outdoor tables aren't in use the space can feel a little crowded and noisy, but the experience is worth it.
Blue Point is a great place to go for fresh seafood in the Gaslamp. Sit outside if you enjoy people watching like my wife does. The Poke appetizer was exceptional and large enough to share. My Seared ahi and lemon pepper shrimp was also very good, although the shrimp should have been one size larger. The ceviche was the only poor dish, with very little taste. Nice specialty drinks, but not a large or great selection of wines by the glass.
