Blue Water Grill - Simply Awful!

Had the misfortune of eating at the Blue Water Grill downstairs last Friday night. Despite reservations for an early dinner for only 2 people, we were kept waiting for more than 45 minutes. I wanted to leave but my friend wanted to stay, so I was stuck. The noise was simply unbearable - had to insert ear plugs in order to filter out the high decible racket to decifer what my friend was saying during the meal. Food was mediocre. Couldn't wait to get out of there. So much money for such a tortuous evening! Why do people rave about this place??

    1. We used to go there regularly for lunch on Saturday. The space is beautiful, but in the last couple of years the food has gone downhill. And yes, they overbook on weekend nights, and it is not unusual to wait with reservations. And it is noisy. This is why I have limited it to lunch, but as I said with the food being mediocre I have not been tempted to eat there lately.
