I had a late lunch and enjoyed the chowder. I prefer a thin broth chowder and this was perfect, plus it had a good amount of seafood in it. The location has both a bar side and restaurant side - kind of two for one...More

The atmosphere of Blue on Water is really nice. Lovely establishment. The service was average, and the food arrived promptly. I was so incredibly disappointed with the food, especially when the prices you are paying are comparable to so many other fine establishments in St....More

A pretty restaurant on the Main Street of the city. We were quite late for dinner but they seated us anyways. Very good chowder. Some of the other combinations seemed a bit odd though. A white fish on sliced tomatoes? Green salad with raisins? Service...More

This is not a cheap restaurant, but the standard of food was indeed excellent. Menu is non-standard and all the better for that. Service lacked something as things were forgotten and we had to ask again. Overall definitely recommended.

Had lobster roll toasted just right. Beet salad was delectable. And the wine and the window view of all the happenings on Water Street made for a truly satisfying late lunch. Server friendly and attentive.

Ate in the bar with my husband on a very busy night. Husband had the lamb, I had the duck. Both were cooked to perfection. Friendly, clean and trendy. A great combination for an entertaining evening.

Very impressive. The salt fish cakes were the best we tasted anywhere in St John's. Scallops were wonderfully cooked, succulent and craftily paired with fresh flavours. Lobster was cooked very well but huge! My personal favourite was the cheesecake, just the right amount of sweet...More

We were able to make same day reservations. The restaurant was clean, food was decent, and service was fast. I tried the mussels, perogies, scallops, and lemon partridgeberry tart. Next time I'd like to try the shrimp and Carmel pecan cheesecake!
