Disappointing – It was our first time dining at the Bluwater on Saturday afternoon for lunch. The service was good, wait staff was exceptional. However, the food was not. All three of us received something wrong with our dishes. Two of us had the Chop Chop salad - it came out with no dressing on it. The dressing once we did get it, was not good. My husband ordered the Bluwater burger, but received a different one, so we waited an additional 15 minutes for him to get his food.
Pick a different place! – Not worth the $. The service was horrible. Poorly staffed. If you want a long wait and average food, then come here. If your going w a big party, good luck to you! It will be the last time you go here.
Awesome Atmosphere – I have heard great reviews from friends and family so i thought this would be the perfect place to celebrate my wedding anniversary. We were very pleased with the service. Our waitress was awesome and we even had another employee come by several times to pick up dishes or ask us how our food was (and it wasn't overly annoying either). The food was perfect too. My husband had the french dip with sweet potatoe fries and i had the chicken taco salad. Both were excellent! oh and I wont forget to mention the delicious bread they make themselves that they serve while you are waiting for your food. Our food and drinks were also served to us on a timely manner as well. I also liked how you can have some good quality food with great ambiance and not have to dress up so fancy. you wont feel awkward going in there with jeans and a hat on. We will definetely be going back!!
late nite HH rocks! – after a bad experience at a restaurant down the street, we decided to try the Bluwater on Greenlake. I always thought this place was a little out of my price range, but after seeing the sign for a new late night happy hour i decided to give it a try. my brother and i sat at the bar, watched a little football, and had great food AND beers for less than $30 bucks. food was great (love the prawns, and the artichoke dip is good n' cheesy), portions are really big, and our bartender was friendly without being pushy. Really like this place, sorry i didn't start coming here sooner. Great deal, good food, and nice big flat screens. perfect.
Best deal on Greenlake – My girlfriend and i stopped into the Bluwater at greenlake after seeing their sign outside advertising a late night happy hour (late night being ten o'clock here in Seattle). We had a great little pizza with a crispy crust, some sauteed prawns that were awesome in a red sauce with garlic and olives, and two beers. Our bill was only $20 bucks! i'll take that price anytime. The place was nice- good music, clean- the service and the food were great, and how can you beat food AND beers for 20?
Love the bar at Greenlake BluWater – I hate overly crowded bars, and that's why I love the Bluwater at Greenlake. It has a nice bar with above average food and reasonable prices considering the menu. I don't get off work until later than most folks and it's nice to be able to go somewhere that serves a full menu after 10pm. The food is good, the drinks are good and I love the people who hang out there - honestly friendly, no snobs. Perfect neighborhood spot.
Denny's Food-Portage Bay Prices – I'm usually the most positive person on the planet. I can always find something to like but I'm pretty hard core when it comes to breakfast. Me and a buddie jogged the lake the other day and thought we'd check out the BluWater for breakfast. BIG MISTAKE.
I've had better french toast at Dennys. And the price!! 15 buck for lame french toast and a small orange juice before tip. Way too much! The service was good and the ambiance is nice but there is a reason it's easy to find a table at 10 on a weekend. Give this place a pass.
Horrible in every sense of the word – I went here with my wife and while the clientele was young, fun, and having a good time (this was when the mariners were still relevant, and richie sexson started a huge brawl), the food was really awful, the service was slow and unhelpful, and it is WAY OVERPRICED
Doesn't even deserve one star! Wish there was a ZERO rating! – With the combination of BAD food and high prices; why would anyone come here? If you like getting sick and paying an arm and a leg for food then this is the place for you! My suggestions, crab mac and cheese which was too rich from the crab being far too old for consumption; and the spinach salad which tasted fine at the time but both dishes made me sick for the next two days on separate occasions. Even though I dined there almost two months apart and had completely different en trees each time, I spent the better part of the evening in the restroom as opposed to at a table. This restaurant clearly depends on it's ambiance and high prices, and NOT quality too survive. Somebody check too see if these people have food handler permits.
Please read~ TERRIBLE TERRIBLE service~! They went for Volume instead of Quality. – There were 4 of us. I ordered the Calimari appetizer, and my boyfriend and two friends ordered drinks. Our waitress was obviously flustered and wasn't writing anything down. She brought the wrong drink to my boyfriend, and it took her a long time to get it fixed. Our dinners were ordered right after we got our correct drink order. Me and my girlfriend ordered the Mahi Tacos, both of us requested NO cheese and NO sour cream since we are both lactose intolerant. Dinner was served before we were done with the appetizer, which not really was a problem except that they forgot my dinner. When I had to remind them, it came out with an obviously scrapped off patch of sourcream on the plate. My girlfriends was brought WITH sour cream and had to be sent back. My cole slaw had a scallop in it. My friends had raw tuna (it was sushi grade, but she doesn't like sushi and it WASN'T supposed to be there in the first place). She sent her plate back for a second time. It AGAIN came out with sourcream after we had told the MANAGER NO SOUR CREAM! She gave up at this point. During all of this, our waitress never offered to refill any waters and didn't refill a pepsi that had been requested and was sitting as close to the end of the table to make it easier for her. The manger decided to comp the one Mahi Taco order that had been sent back twice and he comped my appetizer to make up for the "scallop" in my food. When we got our check, the had added on the drink that we did NOT order and I sent it back right away. my mistake, I should have looked a bit harder. When I got the check back, I realized that they had also charged me for "extra tacos" on my Mahi order which I DID NOT order. I paid the bill just to get out of there. I called my credit card company as soon as I walked out and told them about the service and that I wanted to dispute the charges because it was THAT terrible.
