A little slow on the service, but fun food

We were a party of eight celebrating a visiting relative and I recognize that taking care of such a large party can be a pain for the waitress, but I really shouldn't have to ASK to get more water in my glass when I've drunk all that I was given on a hot day. The decor of this restaurant is... read more

After shopping, we stopped at the Bluewater Grill for happy hour. We ordered appetizers and were very pleased with the presentation and flavor of the Steak skewers and Artichoke Dip. We also received a complimentary loaf of fresh baked bread. It was all excellent. We also ordered a small meal each. The classic New England Clam Chowder, was rich and... More

I have been to the NB location and always been pleased but never here in Tustin. We ate lunch here on the weekend and had Ashley as our server. She was very courteous and helpful. The American Mule & Mimosa were quite good. My lunch mates eggs benedict was over done and not enough hollandaise. They remade her dish and... More

The Bluewater grill has great service and great portions. The service is quick and very friendly. Order the lemon pepper mahi-mahi or the trout, you can't go wrong.

You can do much better in this Tustin mall. I had the grilled salmon that was overdone and came out dry and tasteless. Even if they had grilled it correctly, the piece of fish was remarkably small. It came with a ton of sliced potatoes in a cheesy sauce. The service was fine and the water glasses are enormous.

Table of 8 for a business dinner. While all of us travel frequently, the meal tonight was average to say the least. Chipolte Halibut was a crazy mix of flavors that our team member didn't eat 1/2 of it. And this is a guy that is forgiving when it comes to food! Another guest order the grilled halibut and felt...

I've eaten several times at the Redondo Beach location and was pleased the Irvine property is keeping the franchise going strong. Our personable server was patient and informative. All her recommendations panned out as promised. Will eat here again.

Went for Happy Hour Friday, Apr. 17. Arrived about 4 p.m. (Happy Hour starts at 3:30 p.m.) The House Pinot Noir was $5 a glass and it was a generous pour. The beer (14 Mile, I think) was $4 glass and it was a large glass. Appetizers were from $5 to $8 and were very good. Staff was friendly and... More

Met some friends here for dinner and conversation on a Sunday evening. Not crowded, quiet enough we could talk easily. Erin was our server and was very good, gave us with plenty of time to have a drink, talk, order food, talk, eat, talk...you get the idea. My wife, being from New England, orders fried Ipswich clams more often than... More

I love coming here for happy hour. They have the best fresh grilled fish tacos - 3 for $4 and they're amazing. Fresh grilled Mahi Mahi and they're not only delicious but filling. Bill the bartender is exactly how all bartenders should act - super attentive, friendly, witty and on top of it. Keep up the great work. I will... More
