I liked everything and everyone!
Food quality, taste, presentation was up there, the chef is interested and original. She loves her job and it shows.
The staff was friendly, which is important for people travelling alone. The wine list is interesting and I found what I needed. First bottle was slightly off but they replaced it quickly and without a fuss.
I loved it there and will return whenever I am in town.

Thank Interest009

Lots of great food in this city. So service can make the difference. The staff here are super friendly. Sabrina was the best waitress I've had anywhere. No contest. Very good duck and also goat cheese appetizer. But the service made the night.

Stopped by Blue on Water (bar side) for the first time after hearing many (mostly good) reviews and was very impressed by the atmosphere of the place. A server came by, took our drink order, delivered it promptly and asked if we wanted food. We said we would like to see a menu and off he went to get one... or so we thought; he actually went behind the bar and started chatting with other staff members who were standing around. He came back to check on the table of 6 next to us and replenish their drinks...we tried to get his attention but he didn't look our way. He then came back and actually laid their drinks on our table while he handed them out and then took off without so much as a look let alone the menu. 25 minutes later our drinks were finished and we were ready to leave hungry except we couldn't pay our bill because "our" server was standing around chatting again. It appeared that the manager (maybe?) noticed us and sent someone else over to check on us. We quickly paid our bill and left... not the experience we were anticipating. With so many other options in St.John's it would be hard to recommend this place based on our visit.

Just tried "Blue on Water" for a breakfast and could not fault the food, the ambiance and the service. Price was reasonable too.

This place is quite busy over brunch but we got a table right away. I had the 2 egg breakfast - with a side fruit plate which was amazing!! Yum
