Blue Point Coastal Cuisine Ratings and Reviews
I came in from out of town and selected based on the ratings. As you know this is a crapshoot at times. I was with clients so I was hopeful. Blue Point did an outstanding job!!! I was more than impressed with the food and the service was exceptional. I had the scallops and goat cheese salad ... excellent. Next time I am in San Diego I will visit again.
Meh. I made reservations well in advance and got seated next to the noisy kitchen, thanks for that. I was also very disappointed that it was a fixed menu. You should have had the option for a fixed menu, whilst also choosing from the regular menu. Got to listen to a couple arguing all dinner, which was awesome. So far, my least favorite Cohn restaurant.
We wanted an elegant, stylish, restaurant, with superb food, and attentive knowledgable staff. Boy, we were blown away. Our server Chris, was delightful, and extremely knowledgable about the menu, even offering wine suggestions to accompany our choices, saying if we did not like them, he would change them no problem. Needless to say, everything he suggested we loved. The beef cheeks were outstanding, and my husband's black ink linguini with shrimp was amazing. One of our best meals ever. Can't wait to go back.
We come here pretty rarely but always enjoy the experience. It's a bit pricey but you really get the full dining experience with competent and gracious hosts and waitstaff. The food is always excellent but seemed to even surpass itself with the grilled lobster that I had. Perfectly done. We will make it a point to return more often.
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.
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.
