We eat there frequently. Took some out of town guests. Three out of four were very happy. The person who was dissatisfied said the seafood in the Cioppino was very sandy:gritty

I had high hopes from the reviews but I did not enjoy my food at all. Everything I had was bland and uninteresting to me.

Great experience. Food is always fresh & never disappoints. They didn’t have my fave dish on the menu but when I asked they were quick to grab the last piece of fish and make it for me.

This was probably the best piece of fish I have ever eaten in my life. The service was spectacular, the oysters were unparalleled, I can't wait to come back again. I took him going to start inventing reasons to celebrate just to find an excuse to come back.

Food, as usual was great. Place was really busy and the noise level was high, difficult to have a conversation without shouting. Don’t know if there is s way to improve the acoustics.

Food was delicious and service was “Just Right”. Parking can be tricky. We got a good spot but we didn’t have enough change for the meter. We asked the hostess if she could give us change for a dollar and she went next door to the market to get us change. Very nice!

The menu is extensive with a variety of price points. The portions were big enough that we had leftovers. No room for dessert.

Overall we had a wonderful experience.

Fish here is the star! This visit didn’t disappoint. The fact that is BYOB just makes it better and better. We started with clams casino and a Caesar salad for the 3 of us. Entrees were sole, swordfish grilled and bronzed swordfish with peaches. All came with potatoes and we had a table portion of asparagus. The fish serving were huge..but delicious. Excellent service as well.

All of our seafood choices were superb - we had the mako shark special, blackened tuna, and the swordfish special. It’s one of our favorite restaurants in Princeton, and our go to locally for fresh seafood.

I was very pleasantly surprised by Blue Point Grill. The menu was interesting and wide-ranging, the ambiance was appealing, the service was excellent (including the runners and bussers...they were very engaged and welcoming), and the food was universally enjoyed by all four of us. We will return when we're in Princeton again and have already told friends to go.

We love the food...it is still noisy and that really is a problem for us... One of us is hard of hearing and wears hearing aids.
I feel a headache as a result of the noise...I’m not at all sure that this is a problem which can be corrected.

My wift and I had a very nice dinner at Blue Point Grill. We were tabled up on the second floor outdoor balcony, however you would never have known since the service was very good. We were taken care of by the wait staff, and the food came to our table hot and fresh. I had the mixed grill and my wife had the cioppino. Our only concern was the value. The food was very delicious, however the portions were very small. Unfortunately, we left hungry. If you want a nice, relaxing, casual, 'expensive' snack. Then, this is a great option.

The food was good except for the baked potato. It had a couple bad spots and I thought for the price it could have been a better quality potato.

The food is fresh enough, we tried the sole and if you close your eyes it was hard to tell what fish it was, but still it was fresh and white. Quite expensive but simple and uncomplicated in a town with little competition, I’ve had a lot better and a lot worse. Will return but with lower expectations than this first visit.

As a foodie, this was not a good choice. Small portions, odd pairings and lack of final prep oversight. The location is outstanding and with some staff training and attention to detail this could be a winner...for now I'll pass.

Brought a friend their for her 81st birthday. She enjoyed four huge oysters, along with jalapeño lime shrimp for our appetizers. Her entree was seared yellow fin tuna that melted in your mouth. She enjoyed sampling my grilled halibut. For dessert we shared chocolate raspberry ice cream from The Bent Spoon. It was a perfect evening.
