    We made reservations for 4pm Happy Hour and requested an outdoor table as we would have a dog with us. Unfortunately, the serve advised us that they only serve happy hour inside at the Bar. We asked if she could check with her manager as moving inside was not an option with the dog. The manager was very polite but insisted they do not serve happy hour at outside tables. So, we left and went next door and enjoyed a lovely happy hour outside at the fire pit with our dog and enjoyed live music. It was Friday night with very few patrons either outside or inside at the bar, really a policy they might want to revisit.

    We were so looking forward to sharing a pleasant experience with our guests, instead we were very disappointed with salty, mediocre food & service. We had better memories of our last visit at Blue Water Grill from a few years ago.

    dined outside on patio with friends for early dinner. Nina our first server was friendly and attentive. Gutierraz our 2nd server needs to reduce his cologne - many people have allergies. Bloody Mary was way too salty and not hot enough. wines were good. Caesar salad was nothing special. Gemelli Pasta, Prawn Linguini, Black & BLue Ahi, and Lemon Pepper Mahi Mahi were all good. Key Lime Pie was nothing special.

    First time I had clam chowder here It was outstanding. Lots of clams and very flavorful. Tuna melt with a grilled tomato added an extra tang.

    We went for the lobster pot pie tasting dinner for a birthday celebration. I love Blue Water Grill in Redondo Beach. The food is always great, but this was a little bland and soupy. Not thick, savory, and flavorful like we thought it would be at Blue Water. Another couple who had it felt similar. We'll certainly go back, but for something else.

    I enjoyed brunch there on Sunday. I always order eggs "scrambled soft" and they were cooked hard (not the first time that's happened here). Seems I can't get the chefs to understand what scrambled soft is.

    This place was amazing we went for the first time. We both started with one of each clam chowder to see which one was better, both are very favorable. I had the Walnut Halibut Fish and my Boyfriend got the Black Cod.. omg... that Black Cod was cooked to perfection. If you haven't been here I would recommend stopping in.

    Our favorite waiter left the restaurant-he must of had a good reason. The fish soup was light on fish. That’s probably why our new waiter asked my companion if he wanted pasta in the soup for an additional charge. I don’t normally order a fish platter but since we’ve come here for years I thought I would try something new. Mistake. Fish cold, not crispy. Again—light on fish.

    We had the paella, misoyaki butrerfish and fish n chips were excellent. The steam clam and mussels were fishy. Marco was a great server, got our drinks. Jorsan made tasty long island ice tea and Kendricks gin & tonic. Marco opened my old bottle of pinot noir right away. A fun evening cekebrating my birthsay

    For the value I paid, the service was ok. Food was good in general, but my fish was not even warm. I sent it back, the portion of the fish was reduced to half and once again, it's not temperature hot. The server gave me the plate instead of putting it down on the table.

    The New England clam chowder and oysters Rockefeller made for a yummy start. The miso glazed black cod was cooked perfectly with amazing flavor. My husband enjoyed the Spanish inspired paella which was full of mussels, clams, shrimp, scallops and fish. It was so hearty he could not eat it all. We enjoyed the view of the boats in the harbor and people walking on the surrounding deck having obtained our desired window view in a quieter section of the restaurant. Nina provided outstanding service throughout the evening. The only thing that marred my birthday dinner was the start, while we waited a long time for the table we had reserved. We observed that two large groups were being seated as well as a number of couples, before we were apologetically and belatedly led towards the windows where we selected our table. That is the reason for the overall 4 star rating. This is definitely a restaurant for special events.

    I’ve been here a few times over the years and the food is never good. Last night all of our fish was over cooked and dry. The tuna on the salad was supposed to be “seared but rare” and it was like a well done steak. Come here for the waterfront views not the food.

    The food (fish) is excellent, the service is friendly, and you could not ask for a much better view of the harbor. However, the servers and the kitchen do not coordinate. The entree often (usually) arrives before the starter has been eaten. Management needs to get this sorted out.

    We ordered the mixed Manhattan chowder and the New England clam chowder to try for the first time, it was very good. We were so happy with it that we ordered a quart to go. For appetizers, we ordered the ceviche and that was very tasty too! What was better than the food was the service. Our server, Ryan was spot on! He was refilling our Arnold Palmers without being asked. He was very professional and was never smothering. I’d recommend Bluewater Grill to friends and family, I’d go back there.

    The food at Blue Water Grill is delicious! The seafood paella is fantastic as is the ahi tuna and practically every dish that I have enjoyed at the restaurant in Redondo Beach every time I go there. The hostesses are helpful and accommodating and the waitstaff warm and friendly. I'm looking forward to returning soon! Congratulations on having a well run restaurant operation!
