We usually go to Union Square Cafe, right next door to the Blue Water Grill and have always said how nice it looked and the reviews were great! So we made reservations for Saturday and went to the Green Market first and then into the restaurant. First of all the menu was not as stated on the computer, and the... More

The restaurant doesn't close between lunch and dinner, so it is a great stop after a long day of shopping. The food is good, but not remarkable. Kids are welcome and receive a nice playing set that entertain them for long time.

Have eaten here twice now and both times have had an excellent experience (and both times were for special occasions so expectations were high!). Delicious food cooked to perfection, fantastic ambience in a lovely space and great service. Look forward to our next meal here... Just typing this makes me keen to go back again soon!

We dropped in on a Tuesday evening and only had to wait 4-5 minutes for a table. The ambiance of this place is terrific and the service was impeccable. We had some of the best oysters I've ever had, sushi rolls, and the tuna loin. The tuna loin was perfectly seasoned and cooked. Our waiter was attentive and very helpful.... More

The glazed Chilean sea bass was fabulous! I highly recommend it. Don't stop there. The warm chocolate chip cookies I had for dessert were mouth-watering delicious! A wonderful meal. My vegan husband was delighted to find delicious choices as well.

My husband and I have always loved the bar at the Blue Water Grill. Our favorite Bartenders are Jason and Ian. They are both charming and know how to make great cocktails. On our last visit, Jason made a drink for us that he actually created called, "The Belmont". Now, we don't usually review cocktails, however, this drink was outstanding.... More

I first ate at Blue Water Grill the week that it opened, about 15 years ago. (They gave me a fridge magnet which I still use.) It was great to go back for a summer lunch. Union Square is a great location. The food is extremely good. The service is more than excellent. The restaurant is in an old bank... More

We visited for dinner. The maki rolls, octopus and scallops were some of the best I've had. Very professional service. Highly recommend.
