Very friendly staff
We loved our dinner here. Started with fresh raw oysters, then decided on appetizers for dinner. The salmon ceviche and oysters Rockefeller was equally amazing. Top notch. Shared bruschetta trio and ended with a very fabulous coffee cream brûlée. Gabriella was our sweet and personable server helping guide us through wine and dinner choices. Other staff were attentive and fun. Please give this unassuming and quaint place a chance. The details in food pairings were inventive and complementary. We will be back.
Gabriela was awesome! She made great recommendations and was very warm and inviting. The staff was super attentive, and were very diligent when it came to covering Covid protocol.
The food was delicious and me and my husband will definitely be back for more!
love this neighborhood place and service is great. some good wine choices as well and seafood is excellent and portions are really generous.
Awful experience. We were sitting at our table for an hour and still did not receive all of our appetizers. I asked for a manager and our server said there wasn’t a manager to help. We left without receiving our entrees and second appetizer.
First time visit and I will definitely be back. Bronzino was cooked to perfection, and the grilled vegetables were spectacular. I just had the grilled octopus and said it was wonderful. I order into my apartment frequently, and my only disappointment with this restaurant is that it does not yet deliver.
If you are looking for a quiet dinner Do Not Go Here. The noise level is deafening. We got the feeling the owner or Maitre’d had zero interest in tourist business. He chit-chatted with his known customers we will never return here.
This is a small and charming spot on 9th Ave, great for pre or post theatre or Lincoln Center. We hadn't been there for a year or so and we were a bit disappointed to see they've changed the menu. It now has a broad selection of apps and tapas, and just a few mains-- none of which were the kind of seafood choices (beyond shellfish) that I recall from prior visits. That said, the food is still good and the service very warm and professional.
Lovely meal, we sat at the bar and it was fabulous
Pleasant place with excellent menu for drinks and... limited choice for dinner—more seafood than fish per se. excellent salad. Okay pizza
A good spot for the food, ambience and New York City vibe.
Loved the vibe of the restaurant. Food was wonderful. Probably one of the best value meat and cheese boards of any restaurant I have ever been to. Our server was wonderful.
This place is cute and has great food! I don't know what happened this time I came in but they had one server for the entire restaurant on a Sunday during brunch. The very nice busser tried to help but didn't speak a word of English so it was hard to get things after the fact.
My son and I ate at Blue Seafood Bar for Valentine's Day dinner and truly enjoyed the evening. We had reservations for 7:30pm and were seated just past 7:35pm. The atmosphere did not disappoint and neither did the food. His filet was cooked exactly the way he likes it (medium rare) and my risotto was perfect! I would definitely go there again with friends or even by myself and eat at the bar.
Realizing it was Valentine’s Day I understand the pressure to move meals out of the kitchen quickly, but the duck confit was deep fried, making the meat dry and tough. Also, the Fritto Misto was mostly French fries.
Great, quaint place! Found it randomly on line. Good choices and range of prices.
The octopus was outstanding...oysters very fresh! Service was slow with only 5 other guests at the time.
One of best romantic floors for dinner in Hell’s Kitchen. Modern eccentric but inviting and warm atmosphere. Tar tar was fresh and all the seafood pairs well with their signature craft cocktails. Great service.
Menu was too limited for our needs. Pretty pricey.
Excellent seafood here! I love the appe and mixed grilled seafood, and of course the royal flush oysters too
When I searched on Open Table seafood restaurants "upper west side" the Blue Seafood Bar did not come up. I wasn't thrilled with what did come up and many weren't even in the UWS. So I was thrilled to find Blue Seafood Bar when I googled for more choices. My husband and I loved this restaurant. It was exactly what we were looking for before we went to the Opera. The fritto misto was outstanding and my shrimp cocktail was wonderful. Our dinners were just as good and the waiter was attentive and helpful. We couldn't have been happier and we will definitely be back.
Food and ambiance are fantastic! Service was a bit too loud at the end of the meal, however overall did not affect the experience! Love it here!
The food was absolutely delicious and the ambiance was beautiful. Such a gem. Romantic and cozy.
Great tapas. Branzino under salt was very good. Variety of tapas. Prices was a little bit on high side. But worth it.
Happy Hour is a great deal. It was a counter, but the service was very good. Oyster was also delicious. Recommended restaurant.
Excellent seafood, great service and a beautiful ambiance.
This was New Year's Eve. We chose the tasting menu. Everything was well prepared and delicious. The service was attentive without being rushed. The cocktails before dinner were great. Overall a great experience at a restaurant we have come to know and return to often.
Amazing as always
New Years eve
Great corner booth. Romantic. The oysters were fantastic! Would go again.
I got norovirus while having dinner and had to run grab a taxi and get home and have been in bed for 2 days
It was a great experience. Great service and great food.
Outstanding food and service. Highly recommended!
This is a great gathering spot. The food, beverages, and service were exceptional.
Really nice looking bar and dining area. This is a classy place offering innovative dishes of good food at reasonable prices. Great date or couples dining spot.
Food is definitely decent but overpriced for certain
The waiter was excellent,great demeanour, and welcoming. The food was fresh, well prepared, and enjoyable. We really enjoyed the decor, and the music was very complimentary to the experience. Well done!
Very loud. Large portions. Enjoyed the Mixed Grilled Seafood for 2.
This is a great place to have lunch. They offer a Prix Fixe for lunch which has great options to choose from and it is also affordable. The house wine is delightful. So happy that I gave this place a try.
