Came across this restaurant while in the Union Square area. When we found out it belonged to the same owners (BR Guest Hospitality) as the Blue Fin in Times Square, we were sold! Enjoyed a lunch of seafood salad, crab cake BLT served with old bay fries and burgers and french fries, along with a couple of glasses of pinot... More

A group of us tried six very different items from the menu and all of us were very pleased with our choices. My scallop appetizer was flavorful and satisfying as an entre. Ther is something there for everyone Saefood Lover, Vegan, or Meat Lover.

My husband and I stopped in on Saturday after checking in at our hotel. We did not have a reservation but it was not a problem. We were seated immediately despite how crazy busy it was. We started with a cocktail called a Staycation. It was a Cucumber concoction that was a refreshing and perfect on a warm Saturday. We... More

A client of ours took us there last week. This is an excellent restaurant. We had a wonderful bottle of red for the table, and for our main courses, went with the filet mignon with crumbled blue cheese on top. The meat was delicious. All in all, the food was really good and the ambiance too.

We decided to try Blue Water Grill as one of the restaurants participating in NYC's "Restaurant Week" promotional in which the diner can get an appetizer, an entrée and a dessert for $38 -- not bad! However, at least in this case, there was a choice of four appetizers, only three entrees and two desserts. Only one of the three... More

If in the union square area I always try to visit Blue Water Grill. Especially on a nice summer day sitting outside is a great way to enjoy the city sunshine. Food is fantastic even during restaurant week...drinks are amazing.
