Nice Location with good View 5/31/2010

I had the Mediterranean Ahi Salad which had a good amount of tuna in it, but otherwise was quite tasteless. Two others in the group enjoyed their salmon, but one said it was too undercooked on one side. Service was good. more

Love AJ, the new sushi chef! 2/20/2010

My friend and I stumbled upon the sushi bar by accident when we were going to the bar to get a few drinks. AJ took great care of us. Good selection of rolls and the raw fish was fresh. He has ""chalkboard"" specials that are amazing. Since he's from Hawaii, I tried the Hawaiian style short ribs - yum! Good food and nice eye candy...what could be better? Pros: Food, atmosphere more

the worst service, attitudes, and seafood in the SB. I was e 10/1/2009

Great Atmosphere, Love the New Lounge / Firepit Area 9/21/2008

For those who left negative reviews, I suggest you give Bluewater Grill another try. They have spruced up their look and menu. We were really impressed by their improvements. We sat in the newly remodeled area behind the bar, it was hip and romantic. We ordered the ponzu scallop appetizer to start off with, it is to die for, WOW! I highly recommend, it is that good. Are dinners were just as amazing, I had the Salmon Special and my husband the Ahi Special. After dinner we sat out on the patio around the firepit and had drinks, which I must say were made just right. You could actually taste the alcohol. It was a perfect ending to a wonderful dining experience. Great atmosphere, good service and a new found favorite date spot:) No wonder they were voted ""Best Of Seafood"" Pros: Reservations Accepted, Good Service more

A favorite ""go to"" seafood place for us 8/24/2008

My husband and I dine out about four times a week. Having fine food and wines is important to us. We go to the high end restaurants all around SoCal, but we also have our favorite places where there's no pretense, just passion about what is served from the kitchen. We dine a couple of times a week with friends, family and/or business associates just for fun and often Bluewater Grill is where we end up. more

great seafood! 8/24/2008

Overall great seafood and menu for everyone and kid friendly. We regularly entertain clients, our family and have even hosted a rehearsal dinner at Bluewater and it is always a crowd pleaser. The management is so helpful to tailor each experience to the occasion. I highly recommend this restaurant. Pros: food, service, location Cons: have to valet more

so good! 12/1/2007

We always used to just go out to the cheesecake factory, until we happened upon the bluewater. The hostesses at cheesecake quoted us a 60 minute wait, so we decided to try next door instead. We lucked out! The view at this place is incredible- make sure to ask for a table up front, so you can watch the sunset- or even spy on the people who live on their boats! I've been craving their grilled spiny lobster like mad... I need to find out when it comes back in season. This place is a little-known gem. more

Great Seafood 8/20/2007

Great place to go and take in the view. Great seafood. Selection of food is great. Prices are a little hight but worth every bit. Pros: View, Seafood more

Best Seafood in the South Bay? 6/14/2007

I used to go on a monthly basis a few years ago, but now find that I am just not interested. The views are great for sure. The staff is professional and the food is often flavorful and well-prepared. It just seems so dull... Pros: Nice views, good seafood Cons: Staid, not very interesting more

Totally Avoid 11/29/2006

We went to this place when it first opened. It was good. As time has passed, this place has deteriorated into a place I would not return to. On our last 2 visits here is the deal: Pros: Easy Parking Cons: Everything else more

Best Seafood? 10/23/2006

This restaurant used to be good. I have eaten many dishes and they all tasted boring and lousy. I don't like to waste food so I always take leftovers home. But I did not want to at this restaurants. The only thing that is good is the steamed clams. The oyster bar is nothing to brave about. The service was horrible the night I was there last. I had to ask my server a few times for the same item, and never got it. I had to get someone else. Service was so slow. Pros: steamed clams Cons: Lousy service & louse seafood more

great seafood and staff 7/5/2006

i love this place--it is always sunny. ive been here for holidays and i always have a good time here with my family. friendly staff, and delicious food. i like to get the eggs benedict and fish and chips. Pros: food, staff, views of the ocean Cons: lil pricey, parking on weekends more

Awful Food. 6/12/2006

This place leaves much to be desired. I went here with my family and what assaults you first is the tsunami of cheesy music, circa 1984, blaring from the speakers. I'm not kidding when I say ""Thriller"" was on the playlist. We were seated at one of the tables next to the marina, which would have afforded a nice view had it not been for the sun's glare burning holes in the retinas of the two people facing the windows. Even with the sunshades down, the glare was blinding and squinting through your meal is not a ""spectacular view"". We ordered some calamari, which was obviously overcooked and rubbery. One of us ordered the grilled king salmon, which at first glance appeared dry and crumbly, only to be further insulted by the very real possibility that it had been previously frozen, given its chewiness and lack of flavor. It was terrible! The other ordered the tilapia special, which came grossly undercooked. The sea bass special that I had ordered was the best of the table, in that the fish was cooked perfectly. However, this was a fleeting virtue as it was covered in a hollondaise so thick I had to wonder what they were trying to hide. When we told the waitress of our dissatisfaction, she was quick to defend the honor of the chef, but upon inspection of the salmon, could not disagree that it was dry. She remedied the situation by taking it off the bill, which was kind. The point is this, if you have a restaurant that specializes in one kind of food, then do it well. This is not that kind of place. It is a marina bar/fish and chips/might as well have karoke joint that is masquerading as a serious (and pricey!) seafood restaurant. Good, fresh, quality seafood needs minimal preparation. Bluewater Grill might as well be serving Van De Kamps with tartar sauce. What a rip-off! more

Very satisfied customer 4/18/2006

My boyfriend and I had a fantastic time, if you don't like to wait reservation is a must the service was excellent, Megan our waitress excellent job. We wil definately return. more

Very disappointing 3/23/2006

The service was extremely slow. Food was okay, nothing spectacular - expensive. The only nice thing about this restaurant was the view of the marina. Would not return. Pros: View of marina Cons: Slow service, Food not hot, Expensive more

Loved it! 11/22/2005

I enjoyed the ocean view and the service. Their seafood menu is extensive. They don't miss a thing. I was very pleased to find delicious wild salmon among other fish dishes. I look forward to dining here again. more

Disappointing Don't believe the hype 9/6/2005

We walked in - two women on a 'girls' night out' & were immediately shown one of the two worst tables in the place. When we refused it we were told the wait would be 30 minutes. Service for unescorted women - poor and condescending; coconut shrimp appetizer was more like a sweet seafood macaroon;Caesar salad (isn't that romaine??) looked and tasted like sliced iceburg and had an insipid watery Caesar dressing;sauteed spinach needed blotting - the oil filled the entire plate (thank goodness the lobster tail was on top of its shell!);the waiter left the wine bottle on the table, no cooler,no wine bucket and limited attention for refills; Key lime pie was like cheesecake. Who did they pay for their high ratings? Pros: Okay wine list, varied menu Cons: uneven food quality, below average service more

great food, view and ambiance 8/12/2005

This is not only a beautiful marina, ocean front restaurant on the restaurant row of Redondo Beach, but the food is excellent and the prices of food and wine are a good value. My daughter graduated from Cornell University, Hotel School and the Cordon Bleu in Paris, France so we have been subjected to great food experiences. This restaurant is highly recommended...enjoy and check out the happy hour Pros: good value, great views, excellent dining expe more

GREAT OYSTERS &CLAMS 5/8/2005

our family went here for Mother's day dinner. the wait wasn't long and view was great. food was excellent, very fresh seafood except our waiter forgot about oyster we ordered. We had enough food to share and the price was reasonable. Pros: nice view, fresh seafood, inexpensive Cons: service more
