We have enjoyed lunches at this bistro in the past. Our most recent experience, unfortunately, will have us going somewhere else when in the area. Fish tacos are only ok now. The coleslaw served with the fish and chips was wilted and lacked flavor. The fish was over battered. Service is slow. This place has great views out to the... More

The Bluewater Bistro is located at the Bodega Harbour Golf Links. Had looked inside on a number of occasions when I was playing golf. Nice looking dining room. Finally went there for dinner last night to give it a try. I had a $50 gift cert. for the place as well so that made it an easy choice to take... 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
