My wife and I celebrated our anniversary there on a Friday evening this summer. Following the advice of several TA reviewers we requested (via Open Table) to be seated on the Mezzanine. We were very happy with that decision - the whole place was packed but up where we were the buzz was decidedly a little calmer. The service was very good to start, although it slowed down a bit later on as the place filled up. The food was excellent (especially the Sea Bass!). All in all it was a very pleasant evening. We recommend you give it a try.

This place is consistently good. I have been going for years and never was disappointed. The Jazz Brunch is very nice too on a Sunday

Blue Water Grill is my all time favorite restaurant in NYC. Lobster Bisque is my absolute favorite and i always leave there satiated and happy.

As my son has lived in NYC, now Brooklyn, since graduating from NYU, we visit him often. We love the city and Blue Water Grill is one of our favorite restaurants for brunch and dinner. We usually sit outside on the patio if it's a nice day or sometimes in the Jazz Room. Wherever we sit, we always enjoy their delicious brunch! This time my husband had oysters and sushi, my son had an oatmeal parfait and sushi, his girlfriend had the Crab Cake Benedict, and I had my favorite, the Smoked Salmon Benedict. The brunch was delicious as well as the complimentary champagne or cocktail. Heading back in December and will make my reservation soon!

If you like Jazz, ask to be seated downstairs on the weekends.
Or sit upstairs in the more formal dining area or outside on the patio. The food here is excellent and has prices that match.
Our bar drinks and wines were good, and the servers are well trained. The sushi menu here is a nice, but it's the seafood and steaks that reign supreme! The seafood tower is amazing, and you can even modify it slightly. Don't miss the desserts here, every dinner needs a sweet ending (chocolate fondue, homemade cookies, and an amazing banana something!)
