OUR MISSION
TO SERVE GREAT FOOD IN A CASUAL, RELAXED ENVIRONMENT BY FRIENDLY AND KNOWLEDGEABLE PEOPLE AT A FAIR PRICE
Bluewater Grill was established in Newport Beach in 1996, by partners Rick Staunton and Jim Ulcickas. We have since grown into a family of seafood restaurants, located in resort communities, committed to serving guests pristine seafood, sustainably caught, and prepared classically or with a modern twist.
We believe that fin-tastic hospitality is all about authentic relationships. Whether that’s you catching up with friends and loved ones over a meal or the connections made between our team and our loyal guests. It speaks to the collaborations we’ve created with longstanding partnerships with local fishermen and suppliers and the lifelong friendships that are made with the people that work to make Bluewater so great. These connections are the culture and life behind our restaurants that make us a family.

    Salmon was great, cod so-so not fully cooked through, peppered Mahi-Mahi was very good. Service was great. Wish they would start getting sole as an option on the menu. Overall very good meal.

    We were there for a special holiday dinner with out of town family. We really enjoyed the clam chowder and the oysters on the half shell were outstanding. Two of us had the Misoyaki butterfish. It was well made, but we have had better at Japanese restaurants -- it seemed a bit overcooked. My dad had the red snapper with the spicy sauce -- I think it was a little too spicy for him but he seemed to enjoy it. Everyone LOVED the scalloped potatoes. The entire experience was enjoyable, but a little pricey for the quality of some of the entrees. That said, we understand that ingredients are more expensive than they used to be.

    This is our neighborhood "go to" for great seafood. It can get very busy but since they started accepting reservations, it's been much easier to get in. Another great bonus is that there is no corkage fee for your first 2 bottles. That's worth an extra tip!

    Overall, it was a general dining experience. Front house was good. Service was good. Food was good or average but mahi-mahi had way too much sauce and it was breaded and fried which took away from the natural flavor. We might give it a try again, but I’m sure at this time.

    Unfortunately, the food was not good like previous visits. The bread was dried out and the Caesar salad was plain. My husband ordered swordfish and it was over cooked, tiny, and cold. The service was great and management made up for the dinner. But we are disappointed since there are no fish restaurants in Temecula other than this one.

    Our server, Ash, was fabulous! The wine I ordered was out so she brought me a taste of a similar one, plus the bottle for me to see. The bread there is so yummy! Had a delicious Caesar salad, sand dabs and cioppino. My husband couldn’t stop saying how delicious the cioppino was. My sand dabs were so good and the sides were very tasty and complementary. I had visited the one in Carlsbad a few days before and was so important we tried this one. You can’t go wrong here. The service is excellent and the food is super fresh and there’s such a wide variety of choices! We hope to return to the area soon and come back for more!

    The food was good with very large portions. The server, Christina, was very attentive except she had TOO many tables to cover. The MAJOR NO bueno was the clam chowder and the entre arrived at the exactly same time, very poor coordination. We will be back. Dr. Richard Giese

    The good: We both ordered Swordfish and was very high-quality fish that was perfectly cooked. I would also say that the preparation was very creative, but we both would have preferred something more traditional, as the fish got a little lost in the sauces. Needs improvement: We had to ask for bread; other tables got it without asking. We ordered an expensive bottle of wine (more on that later), but the server just poured it in to the glasses and never offered us a sample taste. Granted, we could have exchanged it if there was something wrong with it (which there wasn't), but a sample taste should always be offered, especially for a pricier wine. Maybe the server was new and wasn't aware, so this could be a simple training issue. Neither of us cared for the Caesar Salad; it had a sharp bite to it and the dressing was very oily as opposed to creamy. Our main courses were brought the table well before we had finished our salads (and we weren't being slow), so they had to sit for a few minutes before we were ready for them. The main course really needed some sort of vegetable on the plate. There were some small potatoes mixed in the sauce that covered the fish, but the plate was literally 75% empty. Back to the wine. We are very familiar with the wine we ordered, but were a bit taken aback by the price of $82. We figured it was just inflation and ordered it anyway but were still very surprised at the seemingly high price. Our suspicions were confirmed the following evening when we were at a another very nice restaurant and they had the exact same bottle for $65, which was much more in line with our expectations. A significant restaurant mark-up for wine is expected, but this seems way out of line. We had been to this restaurant pre-pandemic, and it was excellent in every way, so this experience was disappointing. I'm not sure whether or not we will go back.

    We all got seafood and really enjoyed our dishes. The swordfish special was quite good. Great Spanish sauce! Loved both kinds of chowder. The wine list was varied and the wines on special were delicious and reasonably priced. We ate outside which was very pleasant. Our server wasn’t very attentive or timely which was our only complaint. We will return.

    It was just a bad night! Starting with our server who needed more training. We ordered drinks and told him we were doing the $65 two person special. They brought my clam chowder real fast (still sipping my cocktail) and lost her order for a Cesar salad. It came 15 minutes later after asking the MOD where it was? We ordered a over priced bottle of Chardonnay that was room temperature….he brought back a chilled one w/o a chiller for the table. They forgot to take our order but eventually did….my calamari steak was rubber and her sandwich dabs were not skinned. They brought scalloped potatoes instead of my spinach. The MOD knew we were upset and took off the $8 key lime pie that came with the special…..$135 later we left still hungry! Not returning!!!!
