Blue Point Coastal Cuisine Ratings and Reviews
Been visiting the Blue Point every time ...
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.

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.

The food and service was amazing. We went for Restaurant Week so for $40 per person we got an appetizer/salad, entrée and dessert--what a great deal on the food! We can't wait to go again and try other items on the menu. The menu selection was really good as well.

This happened to be the first night of restaurant week, and it was total chaos. The bartender was doing the best she could, but obviously they were understaffed and the assistant manager refused to help her. The wait staff were like a bunch of 5 year olds running around at birthday party at Chuck E Cheese. The GM had the night off, and it certainly showed. The food was the only saving grace to the evening, other than it took forever to get out of the kitchen. Extremely disappointing experience.

Watermelon salad was sad. Expected grilled shrimp and grilled watermelon, not a candied sweet mess of pink and undercooked shrimp. Made me ill. Crab cake should be jumbo lump, and the sauce is not exciting. This could be better, but was a big fail.

For dessert, the macchiato cheesecake is a must for coffee lovers. The scallops were outrageous! Started with the lobster bisque and the lobster meat was delicious. We sat outside toward the back of the restaurant. Very quiet, romantic and away from everyone. Very pleasant experience.

Everything was delightful and the service was attentive and personal. My guest and I wanted to share an appetizer, share a salad, and share an entree and we were accommodated very well. In fact the portions appeared to be regular size as far as we could tell. The food was exceptional.

The crab cake was amazing, although I was a little disappointed to see just one piece. Mushroom soup was ok. Overall it felt a little expensive for the quantity, but it tasted great and service was really good. Recommend this place for a special occasion

Had a lovely evening at Blue Point Coastal Cuisine. Situated in the Gaslamp Quarter, we had an outdoor table and there's was lots of activity to watch. Wait staff were very friendly and helpful with the wine list - we loved the recommended wine (wish I could remember the name).

Enjoyed every meal that I have had here. Top quality seafood; fresh, cooked to perfection. At my table, we had the special of the day (rockfish) - moist, flaky - accompanied with tasty sides that complemented it well. Others had the halibut - also perfectly cooked. A variety of oysters on the half shell were all quite fresh. Started my meal with the Dean Martin double martini - they do this very well. Will definitely keep going back

My wife and I ate at the Blue Point Coastal Cuisine on August 23, 2016. The Blue Point is in San Diego’s Gaslight District and is a reasonable distance from downtown hotels. We decided to walk to the restaurant from the Manchester Hyatt. This restaurant is very special. It has an excellent seafood menu and many steak choices for those who prefer a turf originated selection. We started with cocktails that were suggested by our server, Ryan. They were perfectly mixed and delightful. We also received a compliments-of-the-chef taste of watermelon gazpacho. It was a wonderful surprise, as it was not on the menu. Our server Ryan was very helpful, attentive and entertaining. He certainly added to our great dining experience. We chose a dish from his recommendations and were more than pleased. We both ordered one of the evening’s specials; pan seared swordfish. Delicious! It was lightly blackened and mildly spicy, unlike some over-the-top fiery seafood plates served elsewhere. We asked the sommelier, Nathan, for a white wine recommendation, and went with a Chardonnay suggestion that paired very nicely. We chatted with Nathan for a while and were impressed with his knowledge and his love of pleasing his patrons. We were glad that we opted to save room for desert rather than order an appetizer, although the appetizer selections were very tempting. We were rewarded with one of the best molten chocolate lava cakes I can remember. All in all, this is a restaurant experience you shouldn’t pass up, especially if you are a visitor to the city and may not return for a while. It’s close to the convention center and the Petco ballpark. If you are attending something at either location, this would be a convenient place to have a meal. It’s pricey but a “must do”. We’ll recommend the Blue Point to friends and hope to return when we visit San Diego again.

We loved everything about our dinner, from the friendly, helpful and efficient server and his assistant to the food and wine. The Summer Lobster Menu was wonderful. Not only was the food delicious, it was artistically plated. The saffron lobster gnocchi was great and perfectly cooked. The wine pairings were a perfect compliment to the meal.

The food was very good. The service was top notch. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. The manager visited our table asking how we were enjoying our dining experience and if there was anything we needed or he could do.
Definitely will come back for excellent and fresh seafood.
