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."

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.
