Excellent chef and quality service. Bar and wine selection, or BYOB. Relaxed and rustic yet upscale, but not snooty.

Had brunch here in the bar which was the only place serving meals. The fish & chips and fish tacos were very good as were the fries & cesaer salad. Bloody Marys were Ok - wishes there was garnish like celery stick or green olives. View awesome! Service was good.

The food was pricey, tasted good but hardly enough to eat and I'm not a big eater. My husband and I enjoyed the musical entertainment. I am not sure what to say about the service since we sat upstairs in the bar and the barmaid seemed either unprepared for the number of tables she had to take care of or indifferent. Her demeanor sort of suggested the latter.

We were visiting Bodega Bay on Sunday 9th October and sightseeing, all the usual stuff.
At about 6pm our thoughts turned to "what shall we do for dinner?" so I had a quick look online and found this place.
It was not far from the hotel we were staying at (Bodega Bay Lodge - excellent), so I drove up to the Bluewater and asked if they had a table for 7:30 pm, they said they did, it looked like an okay place and I was pleased.

So anyway, 1 hour, 25 mins later we drove up again, anticipating a nice meal. When we arrived we were told "Ommmm, we're sort of closing now actually, we've run out of food"...

I don't know what else to say except it was the weirdest restaurant I've ever had the misfortune to visit. Useless staff. Completely messed up our night and we ended up in a horrible restaurant in town.

Bluewater Bistro is a joke.

We preferred the bar atmosphere to the restaurant. Both are served by the same kitchen and have wonderful views. A great place for lunch or dinner, cozy and not pretentious.
