“My go to spot”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

I've been going to Blue Water Grill for many years, since first moving to NYC. I've taken friends, family members and colleague here many times. Most recently I took colleagues from Chicago for lunch. We ordered various entrees (I had crab cakes) and we also had dessert (the chocolate cake with the warm center is my favorite). They enjoyed the meal and the service. They have a selection for everyone, meat, fish, chicken or vegetarian. I love to sit outside in the summers for lunch and in the jazz room for some evening entertainment. We did not have cocktails at lunch but they do usually make great cocktails.

“Expensive, not great service but food ok”
Reviewed April 1, 2014 via mobile

Expensive but food was good. Table top not secured and fell over twice. Service ok but not great. Menu selection limited so I got two appetizers instead. No one told us about the live music downstairs until we went to the bathroom. This one is pretty to look at but not crazy about. Love the area though

“Great Food, Service and Atmosphere”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

This is a perfect NYC restaurant. They advertise their seafood (we had a variety of sushi items), but one in our party had a scrumptous filet mignon! The restaurant is housed in an old bank and has retained every bit of its marbled charm. It's very neat and clean. A bit upscale, dressy casual is fine, but no less. The staff is very attentive. Service is prompt. Drinks were perfect. I really enjoyed our visit and our dinner. The location in Union Square is perfect!

“Hooked”
Reviewed March 29, 2014

In town for a week. Had dinner early on and it was so good, I had to come back. The second time was even better. My dinner mates all concurred. Service great, wine great, meal was exceptional, seafood terrific, flavors inspired. Wish I was there tonight.

“Always and Consistantly Good”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

Another early lunch at the fun Blue Water Grill on Union Square has been consumed and enjoyed - as usual. When in this area of the City, I always attempt to have lunch here as it is a fun place to enjoy a meal experience. It is usually very crowded, but eating at the bar is usually most interesting. This trip, the Lobster/Shrip Eggs Benedict was truly mouth watering and not the usual "Benedict". The cost of a great meal here is very reasonable for the location. This was my fifth or sixth time at this Blue Water Grill in just the past couple of years and, hopefully, there will be more in store. Don't miss it if you are near Union Square.
