    Friday night reservation at Bluewater, looking for good seafood and it had solid reviews. Long story short, service was bad, food was worse. Ahi tuna tostadas- rubbery tuna on a stale tostada. Seared tuna steak entree was over cooked, plain rice and no seasoning on broccoli- bland, very bland. Understand staffing is tough these days but if you’re going to spend $150 for 2 in Temecula, there are better places.

    One of four entrees was wrong and then delayed in arriving. The fish entrees were good and fresh it seemed but nothing exceptional. Will definitely return but just know it is not a 5 star eatery. It is a very good 4 star place and dwarves a try

    We were seated pretty quickly, service was also pretty quick with water and bread. I ordered crab cakes for starters, they came out about 10min. For the main course I ordered the “France” plate (there are having a special France vs. Italy). Food was hot, fish, mussels, etc…were fresh. They even accommodated my wife’s allergies pretty quickly.

    The service was excellent. The staff was attentive, efficient and friendly. The manager walked around checking on everyone’s experience. People were dressed smart casual. The food was great! We had the swordfish and cioppino with local wine selection from Temecula.

    Absolutely loved the food- it was perfect! Our waiter might have been new so I will give him the benefit of the doubt but the service was lacking and the bill for two people was way too high for dinner and drinks. Despite the excellent food, overall seems very overpriced for the ambience and location.

    Love the fish stew challenge. We've been doing this for quite a few years now and think it is a great value. BTW the pairing on the wine was great. Levi our waiter was a delight. He was kind, courteous and very aware of our needs for a slow pace for dinner. He's a keeper. Thank you for a great evening. Rita Nastri And just today, I said to a friend, we should do this as couples next time.

    Overall was a very nice dining experience. Attentive service by Brian. Had to ask for bread after not being brought. Extra sauces to go with food were excellent and also the wine sample, ended up get a glass of it. The Fableiest Albariño was delicious with the walnut crusted halibut. And the key lime pie was fabulous!

    The service was excellent. My husband had steak which he said was "okay" and sides of broccoli and potatoes. I had mahi-mahi which was breaded and greasy. The potatoes and spinach also were greasy/oily. We would give it another try.

    We had reservations for 7 pm and showed up at 6:48 at which point we were checked in, but we weren’t seated until about 7:15… no explanations or anything said about overbooking for that time slot. We noticed there was no area to sit in to wait so the servers had to pass the standing people waiting to get seated. Total flaw, we were lucky to get the only 2 seat waiting spot… My husband enjoyed his meal, however mine was very bland and was suppose to come with asparagus, but Broccolini was on my plate instead , so I asked the server where the asparagus was and she said is that what you want and I said it’s suppose to come with it…. So she brought that eventually. Tho I’ve had better asparagus at other restaurants and the broccolini on my plate was very tough , which my husband help eat, seeing he had very little veggies on his plate. It was very noisy in the restaurant too.. It’s overpriced for what you get…

    Great place for some seafood. There aren’t too many restaurants in the area that offer fresh and variety of fish. Ambience is good, reservations on weekend are highly recommended. I would like to see a little more option in soup menu and may be another chicken dish.

    I have been coming to this restaurant since this location opened. Food is insanely good, great prices. The restaurant is popular, so do yourself a favor always make a reservation. If you like Swordfish, order this... it's not on the menu but you can get any fish prepared how you want it. Swordfish blackened, with Bronze dipping sauce. And any two sides. OMG so good

    My husband and I made a reservation and were seated right away. Outdoor dining in the evening has great ambiance with the lighting and was warm with the heaters. Service was fairly quick. They had a mango hef beer that was perfect. The ahi poke appetizer delicious, but need a few more chips in general. Only 4 were given. Not everyone wants to take huge bites. The salmon, halibut, and potatoes (scalloped I think, that came with the meal) were delicious. I was very disappointed that the asparagus was merely edible and the broccoli inedible.

    The food and cocktails at Bluewater grill Temecula were one of the worst meals our group ever had.. the martini tasted like dirty water, gin n tonic mostly tonic.. But the food was surprisingly bad.. saying it was Denny's quality is an insult to Denny's. The seafood Pailla had no flavor, the two shrimp were the $3.99 /lb shrimp you see at Vons, the chicken fragments overcooked. The misoyaki black cod was oversteamed with heavily diluted sauce.. The Salmon was unbelievably average.. our bill came to $330 for six of us.. We all felt like we were part of a scam.. there is no way this restaurant does not pay for it's positive reviews.. Spare yourself the inevitable frustration of eating at this low level fish diner..
