We had dinner and the atmosphere was nice, not too brightly lit. The service was impeccable. The food good. My only complaint was the food was a bit small for the price. I ordered the Scallops for $26 I think it was. There were 6 scallops about the size of a Nickel each. Needless to say I finished everything on... More

Came here with some guys from work and was served by a lovely lady ( only works Monday and Friday and went to 'Harvard') She recommended an Italian fish stew instead of bouillabaisse for which I am eternally grateful- as it was superb! Great selection of wine. Good beers too. Really recommended!!

Monday night is a gamble at any restautant. Blue Wter Grill in Tustin didn't bring its A game this Monday. From the sour mai tai to overcooked fish to cold steamed veggies, they struck out. They have a great menu for fish and seafood lovers so I'll give them another chance, but not on a Monday.

This restaurant is located in a small marina with a view of the boats. The food was excellent--I had fried shrimp, steamed spinach and the potato au gratin. Everything was very good but the potatoes were outstanding! Just like my mother's only there were no hard lumpy spots :). I also have a drink from the bar and they were... More

I've been to this location of the Bluewater Grill several times now and the food and service is consistently amazing. They offer a monthly "tasting menu" on the second Tuesday of the month, and this has become a ritual for us. Last month was a comparison of Cioppino and Bouillabaisse with a wine paring appropriate for the country. The flavors... More

We asked our hotel for a nice seafood restaurant close by at and the Bluewater Grill was a unanimous choice. The restaurant was close by and well worth the short drive. Located in The District in Tustin, the Bluewater Grill offers fresh seafood at a very reasonable price. My order consisted of fresh Cobia with grilled vegetables and farm fresh... More

The service was good, very friendly waiter, but nothing over the top. The place is not fancy but it is inviting, nice to have lunch. The food was very good with great flavor. All in all a good place to have lunch.

Six of us went out to dinner as a special holiday treat. The margaritas we ordered were great and so were the Oysters Rockefeller. Some of our entrees were disappointing. The portions of fish were so small. They were fresh, but for the prices that were charged, the portions of fish were tiny. For the same prices we could go... More

This was my second time at Blue Water Grill and it was a bit disappointing. There were six of us for dinner and four of us were not thrilled with our entrees. The portion of black cod, Mahi and swordfish were very small and my scallops were very over cooked. The sides overwhelmed the plate by far. The server was... More
