Beverages are well selected by management and not overpriced. Food is not inexpensive but good value considering the excellent views and... read more

We have been visiting the Bluewater Bistro for many years. The views (ocean, beach, golf course, & sunsets are fabulous. The food and service are excellent. Beverages are well selected by management and not overpriced. Food is not inexpensive but good value considering the excellent views and service. On Thursday evenings, there is live music with no cover charge.

We visit Bodega a couple of times a year and the Bluewater Bistro consistently rates up amongst the best restaurants in the area. They are open Thursday through Saturday in the winter and Sunday in the summer and is well worth a visit. The burgers are great if you only want a lighter meal and the rest of the menu... More

We had a super meal - best slow cooked ribs, steak fries and jalapeno chili coleslaw. (This should be a regular on the menu if it isn't!!). Great starters of calamari and also a wonderful beetroot salad. The chef here (Ernesto I think) does a great great job. This is complemented by the fantastic service from Dixie. The venue has...

Expectations were not high for dinner here but it had the advantage of being very close as we were renting a house in the neighborhood. We were pleasantly surprised by the experience. The restaurant was sparsely populated but, in general, the food was good. I would like to rate the restaurant at 3.5 rather than 4 but I think it's... More

In the almost gated community. A good place to watch sports at the bar. The food is typical wings and Caesar salad. A little pricey for the type of food. Check to see if the restaurant is open. There are often weddings here.

Our room at the lodge wasn't ready so we stopped here at the golf course for a late lunch. Food was great. Menu offered very nice selection of sandwiches, salads and other lunch type items. I had a delicious strawberry spinach salad and my husband had a BLT. We also tried some excellent local draft beer. Service was fine. It's... More

Unless you live nearby - or play 18 at The Links at Bodega Harbor - you might not know Bluewater Bistro exists. But you'd be missing a nice treat. Great ocean views (up on the bluff - not your typical Bodega Bay water-level view) and good food served up by Chef Ernesto. Bar service for lunch and dinner; restaurant for... More

Our group of 8 recently spent 7 days in Northern California and based in Bodega Bay. The hours of operation were a bit suspect as the Bluewater Bistro only open for dinner Thursday to Sunday with live entertainment on Thursday and Friday. We made a reservation for Thursday 7/23 by phone, and there was no record of our reservation. We... More

The food was great, there were 6 of us for dinner and we all had different meals. Everyone enjoyed the salads, meals and dessert. I was disappointed with our waitress however, she knew it was my birthday and avoided Helping us celebrate it. She avoided our table for almost the whole time we were there. There was another couple next... More

A recent trip to Bodega Bay for some sightseeing and to try something new led me and my wife to a really neat restaurant on a hill on a golf course overlooking the ocean in Bodega Bay. Bluewater Bistro. Lunch with a view for around $20.00 per person.....a little more for adult beverages. I reccomend begining with a cup of... More
