We dined at the seafood restaurant Bluewater Grill in Redondo Beach for a business dinner recently, and really enjoyed our experience. They are a 20 year old local to California family owned restaurant chain which opened in 1996 in Newport Beach.
Both my husband and I enjoy seafood very much and were excited to try this restaurant. While previewing their menu before our meeting, I learned that they operate their own swordfish harpoon boat, Pilikia, and serve the finest quality locally harpooned swordfish in season. This instantly made me want to try a swordfish but I changed my mind after finding so many other interesting sounding dishes.
Food: Their menu is expansive covering simple seafood dishes to fancy preparations. House bread was served which was just ok. I ordered a pasta dish from their favorites section. It had shrimp, scallops, asparagus and was tossed in a pesto sauce. It was a little heavy but super tasty. My husband had the beer battered fish and chips which came with fries and coleslaw. His fish tasted light and fresh, not greasy at all. We shared a key lime pie for dessert which was perfectly tart and sweet.
Service: We were greeted and seated promptly. Service was amazing from start to finish.
Atmosphere: The restaurant had a casual and laidback overall vibe. The full length glass windows allowed every seat at the restaurant incredible views of the marina at Redondo Beach. They are located right in King Harbor, surrounded by sailboats and palm trees.
I can’t wait to return so I can try more menu items, hopefully to enjoy a romantic non-work related dinner with my husband. The views are amazing from almost every seat !!!!
