I was at the Bodega Bay Lodge and needed to grab some lunch, which the don't serve. So I did some research and walked to the bistro for lunch. It's roughly 15 min walk over. As I walked in I wasn't sure of which way t go, and went to their lower dining room. The help their was totally no.... More

We were two couples and went on a Saturday night. I had read some of the mixed reviews and was a bit worried. I needn't have been - we had a really excellent meal. Biggest most delicious oysters we'd ever had, other salads delicious (beetroot, caprese), super burger, good risotto, good fish. And service with a big smile. Will definitely... More

I have eaten here twice. Little bar atmosphere with a fireplace on one side and a gorgeous view of the Bay. Outstanding Fish and Chips (their specialty). Always stop here when driving up the coast.

Tonight my friends and I attempted to eat here for my Birthday. We originally had a reservation at Drakes (formerly Duck Club), however, decided to stop by to see if Bluewater had availability as it was closer to our rental. We arrived around 2:30 and spoke to Jimmy at the bar. He told me that reservations were full, however, that... More

Went here on a Thursday night; ate in the upstairs Fireside Lounge, which was hopping and loud. (There is almost no ocean view from the Bistro, thus our selection of the Lounge) Service throughout the meal was good. The food was just average: two of us had the Seafood Paella, which while decent tasting, but was NOT paella; it was... More

We went for lunch and there were only four other people in the restaurant. Actually it was the bar since the restaurant is only open a few days a week. We ordered the fish and chips. Big mistake. The fish had obviously been taken out of the freezer. Service was mysteriously slow. The waitress took a long time to bring... More

We were seated at a table with spilt water on it, which no-one offered to wipe down. When we asked for sparkling water, the waitress looked confused and said "We have club soda?" When we declined, she said "We have bottles of sparkling water, but the only thing is, they're four dollars". I appreciate the warning, but maybe if you... More

We had a really wonderful meal here last weekend. The service was so friendly and the food was great. The fish tacos were especially tasty, as were the oysters. Would highly recommend for a romantic dinner.

We have going to The Bluewater Bistro and its upstairs Fireside Lounge for many years. The already tasty food is now even more creative with the addition of a nice variety, lower priced "small plates" that are still large enough for one person's meal! Of course, the water and golf course views are still amazing. Service is friendly. Live music... More
