Birthday Dinner

The food was great, there were 6 of us for dinner and we all had different meals. Everyone enjoyed the salads, meals and dessert.

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

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

It's not often that the three come together in one place: views, food and service were all excellent at the Bluewater Bistro in Bodega Harbour by Bodega Bay. Reading other Tripadvisor restaurant reviews, we weren't expecting a new favorite, but it happened. The trick is to ask 'what's the best'. Our knowledgeable and friendly server, Linda, did not steer us... More

We had a great dinner at the Bluewater Bistro for our Valentine's Day. We were vesting Bodega Bay for the weekend and travelled with another couple. The menu had something for everyone and the sunset view was spectacular. Would definitely recommend for dinner or a special evening.

We had a very nice Thanksgiving Day dinner but I was a bit taken aback when I discovered they dropped their normal happy hour for this day. I had planned to bring a bottle of my own wine and pay corkage but didn't since they advertised a very reasonable happy hour. So, I was stuck with very expensive wine from... More

The food here is good, but the views - especially on a clear day - are amazing. Whether you choose to eat in the main restaurant or up in the bar, you're going to be pleased with the menu selection and the views.

We had a group of eight for breakfast and only the upstairs bar was open. The small space was crowded and the one waitress gave great service, given that she was the only wait person there. Our breakfasts were very good; the menu is limited but there was something for everyone. Even a breakfast salad! I'd go back and would... More

Staying in a home on the golf course and went to this restaurant for the convenience. Friday night, very few customers. Their menu had veal scallopini listed, but was told by the waitstaff that it was a breaded cutlet with a slice of lemon...... That is not scallopini, but does describe schnitzel. Decided to go for the wild salmon with... More

We enjoy the Bluewater Bistro for the great view and good food and have been there several times. Our last visit was disappointing due to the limited service. The server/bartender was very personable and was trying very hard to provide good service. She was overwhelmed by the workload and needed some help. Her duties included tending bar,taking food orders and... More
