I was at the Blue Point for a business dinner. The menu was abbreviated as the sponsor was picking up the bill, so I have no idea about price, but it was one of the worst dining experiences I've had in years.
The restaurant packed together tables so close that every time a waiter walked behind me they either hit my head or bumped my chair. It was a complete irritation the entire time I was at the table (no, I couldn't move to a different seat, they were all taken). It took about ten minutes to get my drinks every time I ordered. Our server never brought out the drinks, but a manager had to deliver them. Obviously under-staffed during prime-time dining for a reservation made well in advance.
The decor has an "old school" look with big chair and white linen table clothes. The place does look nice.
I had been eating a lot of seafood while in SD, so I ordered a steak. It is a seafood restaurant, but also a high-end restaurant, so I figured I'd get a good NY Strip. I couldn't have been more wrong. It was one of the worst steaks I've ever had. There was so much fat and gristle that I literally spit out two bites of steak, at which point I quit eating - with 3/4 of the steak left on the plate. Another man at my table had an equally bad piece of beef. The vegetable, asparagus, was fine, but anyone can steam vegetables. Appetizers were ok, but again, nothing better than I've had at places that cost $10 for an entree. I never made it to the dessert. After the twentieth or thirtieth time I'd gotten smacked in the back, I got up and left. All of this happened almost directly in front of the managers/hostess station. No one tried to correct the situation and no one ever asked why I ate so little of my meal.
I doubt my experience was common at Blue Point, but it shows the complete disregard they had for me as one of about twenty in my party and part of a $1000+ bill. They should do better, much better. I won't be going back when I return to San Diego.
