The Sushi was terrific. The Chocolate Polenta cake was great. The Pork Sandwich was overcooked. The atmosphere was beautiful. The scrod was fresh and very good.all in all- stick to the fish.

This reviewer likes to dine in places that have pleasant surroundings.....this place certainly fit the bill. A very pleasant place to eat....either indoors, or out on the terrace when the weather cooperates. The food served at lunch was very good....a nice watermelon gazpacho, and a wonderful seafood salad for entrée. The server was just perfect, and if I have the... More

The food is always good, the location in Union Square is tops, the restaurant is large yet inviting and the chocolate fondue for dessert is just wonderful.

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.
