The food presentation was great. Good variety of seafood meat and poultry. Old fashion décor but comfortable atmosphere. Personally the prices are a bit expensive so it would be a good place for special occasions. The waiters and waitress were great..

When you first walk into the Blue Mermaid, you are greeted with a quiet sophisticated elegant environment. Dim lighting- but not so dim that you can't read the menu or see your food. Drink service is fast and there's no waiting to take your order. If you want a slower service, you do need to ask. This is common in... More

The Blue Mermaid brought me back to the 70's and it did NOT disappoint! The food, service, ambiance....all worth it! Being new to St. Catharines, we were told the restaurants to go to and The Blue Mermaid was one of the top ones!

At this fine dining restaurant you taste buds will never cease to amaze you. The eye candy of the luscious table cloths to the decedent deserts be prepared to be spoiled and pampered.

Let me start with the fact that I am not generally comfortable in fine dining restaurants. They are slow, small portions, high prices and I'm generally disappointed and do not feel welcome. This place is different. The service has been top notch and friendly every time that I visit and the Food is even better. From a casual lunch surrounded... More
