What the community has to say about Blue Water Grill

Information about this business (10)

This now-classic seafood palace sails on victoriously with its ocean-traveling menu.

One of Zagat’s Most Popular Restaurants in New York, Blue Water Grill delivers quality seafood and sushi in the dining room, an outdoor café in Union Square and a jazz room with live music daily.

Whether you eat at the year-round sidewalk cafe (complete with heaters in the winter), the spacious and stylish main dining room or the smoky downstairs jazz room, the seafood is always lovingly prepared and served by an attentive, well-trained staff. The raw bar at the Blue Water Grill serves oysters from all over, especially the Northeast. The massive seafood platter is a great bargain. Fish...

Blue Water Grill Restaurant Review

Blue Water Grill is located in a former bank building in Union Square. The kitchen crafts an almost exclusive seafood menu. Lobster claws its way into bisque. Or order it live and then bid it 'adieu' for a grilled, broiled or steamed send off. The mollusk is even lobbed between brioche slices at lunch. Offerings at the raw bar beckon, too. Before or after you get to all of this, be it at the...

This "time-tested" Union Square "oasis" is still "holding strong" after a revamp, with a market menu of "first-rate seafood" served by "engaging" staffers in an "impressive" former bank with "marble all around" and a "wonderful" side terrace; it runs "a bit expensive", but the "energetic" regulars say it "never fails" "for business or pleasure."

I was looking for a great place for date night and this did not disappoint. It wasn't perfect, but it's worth the money. We are pescatarian, only meat is fish, and there were lots of fish options. My wife ordered a salad with ahi tuna and it was wonderful. However, even after asking if there was meat and hearing only the tuna, the kitchen prepared it with bacon. My flounder and eggplant was...

What to Drink

The wine list is long and pricey, and servers may have trouble recommending one of the few bottles in the $40s. That said, a bump up to a $58 bottle of Dobbes Grand Assemblage Cuvee yields a stellar, light bodied red that pairs well with both fish and meats.

Know Before You Go

Despite an otherwise well-run front of house, half hour waits can accompany reservations.
