San Diego Restaurants

Blue Point Coastal Cuisine

Updated 05/16/2014

Fodor's Review

If there's a convention in town, Blue Point gets jammed with diverse diners who share a taste for sophisticated seafood. The menu swims with classics like crab cakes, mussels in tomato-fennel broth, and halibut crusted with breadcrumbs, herbs, and diced lobster meat. The small but serious oyster bar, which serves both raw and imaginatively prepared shellfish, is a warm-up for the menu of more seafood, plus chicken and steaks. The wine list is impressive, and the service

is efficient and friendly. The airy dining room has gleaming woodwork and walls of windows looking onto 5th Avenue and Market Street, a prime corner for people-watching.

Bring money and a full stomach.

Our appetizer was two each crab cakes, but where mixed with a filling. Each was about the size of a U.S. dollar, and cost about $13. A low priced wine by the bottle is about $48. The portions were very small. Our main course was delivered warm; not hot. The "liquid chocolate" cake was yummy. Drop $165 here for two people.

Hand me the ear plugs

Fantastic food, professional but personal service. Too bad you can't hold a conversation with your dinner companions due to the high noise level. There are other restaurants to go to if you want a wonderful, quiet, yet innovative meal.
