awful, awful, awful – I have been to this restaurant multiple times (not by choice!) and each time it has been absolutely awful - all the more highlighted by the high prices. This place is highly overrated and seems to keep its clientele because of its reputation for being chichi, not because the food is delicious or innovative. Case in point - I ordered a spinach salad with roasted chicken - the salad had some yellow and wilted spinach, while the chicken actually tasted like it had started to go bad. On that same visit, one of my companions, who had made clear that she was a vegetarian, was overjoyed to find a grilled fishhead accompanying her salad. This restaurant is 5 out of 10 for the quality of the food but the ridiculous prices are absolutely not worth it!

lOVED IT !!! – 7/11/2005

There was nothing that I did not like about it. The drinks, food, staff.... It was a bit expensive. But you get what you pay for. I'm planning to go back very soon.

It's The Best Restaurant In Town – I returned to the Blue Point Grill for a 2nd year Anniversary Dinner after not having dined there for about one year. I was AMAZED as it seemed even better than I remembered it. I had the Alaskan halibut special and I was blown away. The fish was so fresh and everything served was the finest quality. The price is high but well worth it for a special occasion. Everything from the valet parking to the desert was so wonderful it facilitated a beautiful evening. It's still the Best Restaurant In Town!

Ridiculously Good – A couple of friends and I went to this restaurant last Friday evening for dinner. There was bit of a wait for the table, but things happen...so we did not allow the delay to be bother us. After being seated the waiter, Michael was extremely attentive...the right balance. He explained the specials etc. The food was RIDICULOUSLY wonderful, starting with the salad, entree, desert. The atmosphere was just right. I have traveled all over the world and this country and I must say, this ranks way up there with being one of the best dining experiences.

Excellent – Dined for lunch today and it was excellent! $27 for 2 including tip. I had the Shrimp & Scallop over mashed potatoes ($12) which was excellent. My fiance had the Lobster & Chicken Linguine ($9) and she loved it. The warm bread served with lunch was very good as well. It was quite crowded for a Wednesday at 1.

A Place to See and Be Seen – I have been there twice recently, and had fabulous meals both times. Even though it is pricey, a meal of appetizers is very filling. I would recommend the Calimari, served on a bed of greens with a spicey sauce. For the portion size, it was a reasonable $9.

Would like to see Blue Point go to a non-smoking format. Much of the smoke from the bar flows into the dining room

This elegant Warehouse District space fills with pretty people looking to dine on some of the best seafood in town. – The Scene
The accents in this sprawling brick space, like worn life preservers and a brass ship's bell, are nautical but not overly cutesy. The drinking area is well-stocked with both liquors and bartenders paid to listen to your tales of crossing the Cape. Elbow room is at a premium on weekends when the BMW fleet comes in, swimming between the painted seascape to the blue-and-gold clothed tables.

The Food
The Blue Point manages to escape the nagging dreariness of all-fish-all-the-time programming by leaving no species unhooked (Honduran tilapia is on the menu) and no culinary style untried. The combinations can lead to occasional overkill, as in the sea bass with red curry coconut sauce. Instead, check out the "Simply Prepared" section of the menu, where Carolina grouper, Pacific swordfish and salmon receive a boost from whipped mashers.

Not worth the prices – High point was the cold shellfish appetizer platter, complete with crab legs and delicious blue point oysters. Otherwise nothing much to rave about here, blackened halibut too dry, swordfish ordinary, could have gotten same quality of seafood just about anywhere without having to pay these kind of prices. Also, due to some problem in the kitchen, we had to wait nearly 1 hr for our entrees, to make up for which the deserts were on the house. Nice place, good ambience and convenient location, but I probably wont be back here anytime soon.

Excellent Seafood – As a recent transplant from Boston I have to say that the seafood was excellent, especially the bouillabaise which was almost perfect. Our waiter was attentive and the service was excellent. The only thing that I was not completely crazy about was I believe the Oysters Rockefeller. However, even my husband's grouper was delicious and moist and the mashed potatoes were phenomenal. I find the menu very innovative I highly recommend it.

Consistantly GREAT – We are from Boston, which boasts some of the finest restaurants in the country. The 3 visits we've had to the Blue Point Grille in Cleveland over the past 3 years, however, have been as good as any restaurant in Boston with the service, quality of the meals and the ambiance being equal or better to any of the best restaurants we've ever experienced anywhere in the country. Our hat's go off the everyone who works there and we look forward to our next visit!! The Blue Point Grille is with out a doubt a 10!! Enjoy!!!
