Although we live quite near, we had never tried this restaurant. We ordered one taco salad with grilled prawns and one with calamari. The salads were small with a lot of lettuce, a few pieces of tomato, and some chips on the side. The "prawns" looked like a few small shrimp and the calamari was only a few strips. There... More

Blue Water is Seattle's version of a coastal Mexican style restaurant and it does not disappoint. This was a first for me at this location, but the second time in all. The tacos and burritos here are very good. Better than some of the similar national chains, but a bit below some of the others. Prices are very reasonable. Burritos... More

I can't say that I loved my fish taco . . . it was average. Perhaps a little disappointing, even. But I will say that I at least enjoyed the ambiance and the décor. It's no doubt a great place to eat if you're looking for something quick and decently priced. Will I give this place another try next time?... More

Ate here again after a two-year absence or so. I had a fish special plate -- very good. My friend had fish tacos -- they were OK. Rice and beans are good. They will hold back cilantro if you ask -- always necessary for me! Actually, I'd rate the place at 3.5 stars if possible but I'll bump it up... More

Hit up the Blue Water Taco for lunch with a colleague. Paid $6.50 for a chicken burrito with rice, beans, pico de gallo and guacamole. It was amazing, I plan on returning to explore the menu further.

Went here randomly while looking in the area for places to eat. Seemed like one of the cheaper places to eat (it was not the cheap in the end). The food was good and they have a great backdoor patio that was great to just have a drink, relax, and take in the air. Overall it was a good place,... More

Was stating at a hotel right near this place, so decides to try it based on reviews I read. I think we were two of four people in the place. I'm Latino and love Mexican food, so am always looking for good authentic Mexican food. This food was good, but I should have known things were iffy when my wife... More

This a was a great find just a short distance away from the tourist trap that is the Space Needle. The tacos (steak and Chorizo) were excellent. Add a $3 margarita and lunch was complete.

I had a shrimp burrito. I had the "Deluxe" which included cheese, guacamole and sour cream for an extra dollar. The portion of shrimp was modest. Overall the burrito was satisfactory, but, with a Negra Modelo, set me back almost $15. It doesn't seem to me that I should have to pay extra for cheese on a burrito. Nothing wrong... More
