Blue Point Coastal Cuisine Ratings and Reviews

We came in for restaurant week and were not disappointed! The deconstructed salad with cheese, beets and greens was delicious. The ahi tuna was served rare and was perfect. Plus an awesome martini served the old fashioned way. The ambience had an old world quality to it- we all had a fun time!!!

We had a Tuesday evening dinner at the Blue Point restaurant. It's a very nice place in downtown SD. We hit some traffic on the way there and opted for the valet parking ($15) since we didn't have time to do any self parking. We had a comfy booth and our server, Jade, was friendly and courteous. Her assistant, Zack, was also attentive and friendly. Our cocktails were delivered promptly. My wife had the Goat Cheese Salad, the Ahi and an Apple Crust dessert. I had the Fried Oysters, Short Ribs and Sorbet Trio dessert. The presentation on everything was excellent and the whole meal was great. We had a very enjoyable leisurely dining experience at the Blue Point. We did notice that had the onerous 3% surcharge on the bill, which was not appreciated, but evidently is becoming commonplace. Downgraded it one star for the surcharge.

Blue Point Coastal remains one of my favorite restaurants in San Diego. I have had many good meals there and have never been disappointed. I like the décor and the whole style of the place. The entire staff is very professional and attentive.

We started with oysters which were an assortment from three locations-- all delicious.
Our entrees were really over the top.
Prepared perfectly with complex flavors.
I wish I lived close enough to dine here again, really great.
Third visit not as good as previous two. ...
Third visit not as good as previous two. Inattentive service. My favorite app (smoked salmon) no longer offered. My favorite entrée (beef & reef) is different. They replaced the half lobster tail with a lobster/scallop combo dish that isn't very good and shrunk the tenderloin portion down from 6 oz to 5. The whole menu is getting more and more "artisan" for me. Also, dislike the 4% surcharge to cover CA minimum wage hike. Lots of places doing that, I know, but shouldn't they reduce the "recommended" tip amount on the bill. It still starts at 18% and goes to 24%.

Food was wonderful. We had the sea bass and bouillabaisse. Both were flavorful. The atmosphere was very nice; not a lot of noise and we could actually carry on a conversation.
The only areas for improvement would be to clear dishes a little quicker and the crème brûlée needed more caramelization.
Server was personable. He ensured the dessert charge was removed when we expressed our disappointment with the quality.
We would definitely go back.

Enjoyed Christmas Eve dinner while visiting SD. Arrived early for our res and had a great time at the bar ---oysters and crab cakes were excellent and excellent values (happy hour prices) Dinner was also very good-- Barimundi and mussels stand out. Sat in a "shell booth" and enjoyed the service. Would go back.

We started with a dozen oysters, delicious. My friend had their crab crusted sea bass - excellent. I had the mahi mahi, also excellent. Service was great, beautiful space. Would appreciate a more expansive wine selection.

Been visiting the Blue Point every time we come through San Diego for many years, characterful and interesting, consisntly high standards for sea food and steaks. Informed and characterful staff, excellent wine list. A real star that sustains its standards.

The food and service are the stars at Blue Point Coastal. We were seated immediately for our reservation and attended efficiently and unobtrusively by both waiter and assistant throughout the meal. Though the restaurant was busy, it was easy to talk in our booth as background sound was much quieter than the average in San Diego's Gaslamp District.
All of our selections were available, served as we requested and delicious. Special kudos for the tempura squash blossoms, the lobster bisque and the Scottish salmon.
There is a full bar, which we did not require. The wine selection is ample and the by-the -glass options wide ranging and well chosen.
All in all we had a lovely evening. But this level of quality does not come cheap. For us, definitely worth it. I encourage you to see for yourself.

One of the better places I have tried in the Gaslamp neighborhood. Great seafood - I was with a party of 3 and we ordered the mussels, salmon, scallops, and swordfish and all thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Wine selection was great, as was the service.

We enjoyed a marvelous dinner at Blue Point, one of my very fave places to dine.
We were cordially greeted, and assured our reservation was ready. The staff was sincerely attendant, with the assistant server, server and manager often stopping by, just to check in and a warm appreciation.
The food was superlative; excellent, as to quality, presentation, amount, preparation, and taste.
We felt cared for and appreciated. Thank you!

We were so disappointed with this dining experience. The highlight was sitting outside and seeing all of the Halloween costumes rush by on their way to parties and bars. The majority of our meal was comped due to poor service and a meal that came out over cooked and then returned under cooked. In our twenty six years of dining together, this anniversary dinner is one we hope to soon forget. :(

We sat on the patio for dinner service. For us, it was the perfect balance. The interior of the restaurant could seem a bit subdued and serious while serving perfectly plated cuisine. However, the location is perfect on, from what we could see, the liveliest street in the gas lamp district. Eating lovely food that was meticulously prepared with five star service, but also getting the open air atmosphere and charm of the downtown vibe, made it a comfortable, fun experience that we will not soon forget!

The food and service were just fine however the meal was way over priced for what we received. For the price, I expected the meal to be outstanding. In this price range there are many other options in San Diego that would be a better overall experience. I won't be going back.

Expensive but food and service was excellent! It had been 20 yrs since I had seen a family member so a lot of catching up. The waitresses was very patient and I never felt like she just wanted get us in and out. Give our waitress an A+...

Happy Hour was excellent and such a great deal! Everything we ordered (oysters, shrimp cocktail, tempura squash blossoms and the wine that we paired it with) was DELICIOUS! We had reservations to have dinner afterwards and it wasn't a problem to continue to eat at the bar (which was quite comfortable and cozy to sit at). Food from the dinner menu was also fantastic. The lobster bisque was very deep and rich in flavor and the beef cheek was amazing - very tender! The service we received was impeccable - the staff was very friendly, attentive and thoughtful. Overall, we had a great dining experience here and would totally recommend it to our friends and family.

Excellent food and service in the heart of Gaslamp District. Very expensive, however. Many entrees were $49 plus tax, gratuity. Dinner for two with two glasses of wine and one martini was $195 so make this a special occasion place unless you are rich or don't care how much things costs.
