 Location, Location, Location – is all that Blue Water Grill is thriving on.

This over crowded eatery serves the mass market with unimaginative dishes that are poorly composed. There wasn’t an ounce of definition that I found in any morsel I ate – I was bored to tears throughout the meal from beginning to end.

It really is a pity because the physical restaurant itself has that old New York charm but the food just didn’t cut it for me.

Oh! How I wished all evening that I had hopped over to Union Square Cafe next door instead. If not for the super friendly, ultra courteous service – the evening might have been a complete wash.


Here is some of what we ate:


Wild Mushroom Bisque


Seared Fluke Roll


Thyme Roasted Artic Char


Crisp Snake River Brook Trout


Double Chocolate Espresso Bar


Citrus Panna Cotta Tart
