Based on TripAdvisor reviews, our family of four enjoyed a beautiful seafood feast at this fabulous restaurant. The starters, mains and desserts were superbly prepared and amazingly delicious. The chowder, sea bass and lobster risotto were all stand-outs, but everything we tried (and shared) was...More

We were looking for a authentic local steak house with fish options for one of us and Blue Point was a good choice. We enjoyed the terrace and nice starters: jumbo shrimp cóctel or lobster bisque soup. The steaks we ordered were massive portions, dos...More

I met another person for a business dinner. The food was exceptional and service delightful. The ambience was very nice. We ate shortly after they opened so it was quiet for our work conversation. This is also a great location for dates and drinks too.

There were two of us. We ordered two appetizers each and a few drinks and the bill was over $100. Food was great but price was a bit shocking. The Mesclun Salad wasn't as tasty as I would have liked.

Happy Hour was wonderful. Jamie made up great drinks and the appetizers were fantastic (teriyaki blossoms). We were too full after appetizers to stay and have a meal. Would not hesitate to return.

The food is exquisite and so is the atmosphere. Our waiter was also fantastic. It has a good wine list which can easily be paired with the meal.
