    Favorite room in Indy. Feels more like New York or Chicago. I cook most nights, and a lot of salmon. I wish mine was half this good. Squid ink pasta is a favorite too, and the grilled octopus. Generous pours, nice wine list (love the new Gavi), attentive, friendly staff, and of course Gino Pizzi directs Blupoint like a symphony.

    The cavicie appetizer keeps getting smaller and le flavorful, but still good, just not as good as maybe a couple of months ago and the chips are too small and broken.

    I had to send the “Roasted” beet salad back to the kitchen. In addition to being really, really overdressed (think “swimming”), these beets, if roasted at all, were really, really under-roasted (think almost raw). The scallop entree was just ok. It must have been an “off-veggie prep” night…the broccolini was underoasted. Couldn’t enjoy the stalks.

    Seafood stew was awful. Broth had zero flavor and very little seafood and no shrimp or lobster for such a high price point. Huge disappointment. Save your money and go elsewhere.

    This was my third time dining here. This time I was with my spouse and a friend. We ordered oysters, the octopus, mussels, a linguine con vongole, and a pistachio cake. Each dish was delightful with the possible exception of the vongole. It was lacking peppers and, therefore, was a bit bland. As an ironic aside, this restaurant’s owner, Gino Pizzi, has made for me the best vongole I have had in any restaurant bar none (Italy or the US). Our guest was so impressed that she made a reservation for her family for this coming weekend on the spot. In short, we will be happily be back.

    My husband and I had a lovely time. We were only able to get bar counter seating and it was wonderful. The bartender was attentive and informative and our cocktails were delish. Our oysters were super fresh and satisfying. I had the fish stew which had a lot of variety and perfectly cooked. The fish was soft and the calamari was not chewy. We would highly recommend this establishment

    We had a great meal and dining experience at Blupoint Oyster House last night. Food and drinks were wonderful and the outdoor dining was exceptional. Our party of four enjoyed both fresh oysters and oysters Rockefeller along with fresh fish and linguini with clams for entree’s. Gino has scored again after his hugely successful Ambrosia restaurant with this delightful dining establishment. Highly recommend!

    Repeat customer but the food tonight was really off. My dinning partner had the linguini and clams. It had no broth and was very full of grit. He couldn’t finish. The ceviche, although amazingly flavorful was not cut small enough and very chewy. I had the branzino and it was extremely fishy. Could not finish. However the risotto was fab! Service was great!

    As usual Blupoint was amazing, with the freshest oysters and great drinks followed by their new entrees. Our server of choice is Kyle, who is amazing, but the other staff and servers are also great. Pricey and worth every penny; the freshest seafood we've found in the Indianapolis area. If you love seafood and excellent service this is your place.

    First time visiting and will definitely be back! Loved the oysters, grilled octopus, and squid ink pasta. Everything was cooked perfectly. Service was attentive. It was very busy and the restaurant was loud. Food more than made up for it, but in the future we’ll probably opt for outdoor dining when possible.

    I wish I had the option of zero stars because this was the WORST “dining” experience of our lives. Showed up for our reservation and a table of 4 sans reservation had entered just before us. The group turned to us to apologize for there being no hostess because she offered them drinks (?!) and had disappeared. Okayyy. She finally returned (sans drinks for the group) & we were seated first (obviously) at a FOUR TOP instead of either of the two available TWO TOPS! This generated nasty looks from the two women in the group without reservations, thus beginning our horrible experience. We were seated, got the menus & lovely warm tap water. And proceeded to sit there. Francisco (I think that’s his name but not sure because the restaurant is as loud as a bus station!) the waiter took his sweet time getting to us. Though I’m not sure it was entirely his fault because his section was all over the restaurant - which really made no sense. He finally took our drink order and went to the bar & placed it. He came back a few minutes later & took our order for our oyster appetizer. We continued to wait on our drinks. A two top seated after us got their drinks within minutes & their waiter spent several minutes with them explaining the menu. The hostess even stopped by to see if we had been waited on yet so it was obvious that we were waiting and waiting. Our oysters arrived. Still no cocktails. At this point, we’d been waiting TWENTY minutes. I told my husband when it hits 30 with no cocktails, we’re leaving. Francisco did come by to check on us and I asked if we might ever get our drinks. He shook his head in frustration and just left. I finally turned to just stare at the bar. Still nothing. After waiting 35 minutes with zero drinks, we got up to leave. Absolutely livid. Turned to see the hostess coming with our drinks and I said “too late” and her response? “Fair.” As if she knew they were failures. (Also, I ordered an Aperol spritz and they SHOOK IT?) NEVER RETURNING HERE!

    We are regulars. Oysters are always good, but last night they were superb. My wife loves the scallops and was pleased once again. She considered crab cakes so I had those. A bit spicy for my taste but many might like them that way. In any case we were already planning our next visit as we departed.

    This was our first time dining at Blupoint! We had a reservation at 7 and the restaurant was packed when we got there. We waited at the bar for a table to open up. The owner was there that night and was gracious enough to let us dine at his table! We ordered oysters, caprese salad, mussels in white wine sauce for appetizers - all of which were DIVINE! For dinner, my partner had the branzino and I had the special squid ink pasta with scallops in vodka sauce - ALL AMAZING!! Nick, our waiter, was fantastic and knowledgeable. Overall, fantastic experience with even better food! We will definitely be visiting again soon!

    My wife and I went here on a Friday for date night. Had an absolutely wonderful experience. We started with a dozen fresh Oysters on the Half Shell - outstanding. We then each ordered a seafood dinner. I had Squid-Ink Pasta with Scallops in Vodka Sauce, absolutely amazing! My wife ordered the Bass. Her entree was a little fishy tasting, so we asked our waiter to return it. They replaced it with a Cod dish in tomato sauce which was magnificent - seriously, magnificent. Though we had a slight little hiccup with her first entree, the replacement more than made up for it and they took a significant amount off of our tab to boot. My wife and I are cocktail snobs. This place did an outstanding job in that department as well. Her Martinis were perfect and my Dark Manhattan and Sazerac were both spot-on perfect. I can’t wait to return to this wonderful, cozy, charming little place. You should definitely check it out.
