The ambiance and location of this restaurant are quite amazing. However, having been twice in 4 months' time now they just haven't met expectations. Starting at about $25 per meal and $12 a glass of house wine there's so much left to be desired. Food is "good" but comes from the kitchen just warm in temperature. The staff seems so... More

Great ambience. Friendly staff. Good choices on the menu. Live entertainment. A fun place for dinner. Some misses in the kitchen. The cocoanut grouper was inedible and oddly tough. Sent back for what was a much better filet. The terra Ceia bay clams tough and not as good as they could be. A bit sour. Others at our table of... More

We had dinner on the patio last night, and it was special in every way. From the Hostess who seated us at an ideal table outdoors to the attentive server who didn't hover but saw to our entire satisfaction to the great tasting food delivered hot to the table by professionally looking staff to the really reasonable bill, it couldn't...

I've been told that eating at a restaurant follows the rule that you can't have everything you want. You can have reasonable prices and good service, but it will take forever to get your food. Or you can have great, quick service, but pay more than you'd like, but never can you have all three. Blu Mangrove Grill has managed... More

My girlfriends and I spent our new years at the Blu Mangrove and were blown away by this restaurant! On top of the spectacular views and amazing decor I cannot stress how fantastic the food was. My chilean sea bass was exquisite and one of my friends could not have raved more about her filet mignon. Truly fantastic experience! I'm... More

I can't say anything about food or drinks because never got served. We arrived at 12:45 noon time and we were seated right away with menus, while we were checking out what to drink a lady delivered water and left, we checked what we wanted to eat and waited and while we waited and don't get me wrong I love...

If you want a great meal with a beautiful view look no further. The Blu Mangrove has excellent food with indoor and outdoor seating. I had the chicken picatta an my husband the lobster linguine. Both meals were thoroughly enjoyed.
