We have going to The Bluewater Bistro and its upstairs Fireside Lounge for many years. The already tasty food is now even more creative with the addition of a nice variety, lower priced "small plates" that are still large enough for one person's meal! Of course, the water and golf course views are still amazing. Service is friendly. Live music... More

We'd never heard about this place before I found it online. After a rather poor meal at one of the 'major' restaurants on the Bay the night before, Bluewater Bistro was a step up. Not so easy to find but close to town and worth the online map view to see where it is. Follow the map and it's in... More

Scenic spot for a post golf beverage. Overlooking ocean and 18th. Nice bar, had really good flatbread; other menu items looked intriguing. Friendly servers, tv's to catch up on the pros, fireplace. Always end up thinking Why don't we come here more often??

We have been visiting the Bluewater Bistro for many years. The views (ocean, beach, golf course, & sunsets are fabulous. The food and service are excellent. Beverages are well selected by management and not overpriced. Food is not inexpensive but good value considering the excellent views and service. On Thursday evenings, there is live music with no cover charge.

We visit Bodega a couple of times a year and the Bluewater Bistro consistently rates up amongst the best restaurants in the area. They are open Thursday through Saturday in the winter and Sunday in the summer and is well worth a visit. The burgers are great if you only want a lighter meal and the rest of the menu... More

We had a super meal - best slow cooked ribs, steak fries and jalapeno chili coleslaw. (This should be a regular on the menu if it isn't!!). Great starters of calamari and also a wonderful beetroot salad. The chef here (Ernesto I think) does a great great job. This is complemented by the fantastic service from Dixie. The venue has...

Expectations were not high for dinner here but it had the advantage of being very close as we were renting a house in the neighborhood. We were pleasantly surprised by the experience. The restaurant was sparsely populated but, in general, the food was good. I would like to rate the restaurant at 3.5 rather than 4 but I think it's... More

In the almost gated community. A good place to watch sports at the bar. The food is typical wings and Caesar salad. A little pricey for the type of food. Check to see if the restaurant is open. There are often weddings here.

Our room at the lodge wasn't ready so we stopped here at the golf course for a late lunch. Food was great. Menu offered very nice selection of sandwiches, salads and other lunch type items. I had a delicious strawberry spinach salad and my husband had a BLT. We also tried some excellent local draft beer. Service was fine. It's... More

Unless you live nearby - or play 18 at The Links at Bodega Harbor - you might not know Bluewater Bistro exists. But you'd be missing a nice treat. Great ocean views (up on the bluff - not your typical Bodega Bay water-level view) and good food served up by Chef Ernesto. Bar service for lunch and dinner; restaurant for... More
