Blu Water Grill
Shop B21, cnr Florence & Hunter St Hornsby
Unfortunately this local does not pay off. It is honestly one of the worst restaurants I have ever been to.
To start off I really don’t know what happened to Blu Water Grill. I remember joyous years not too long ago where the service was brilliant and the food was even better. Wow – how low has this place sunk! I am quick to point the finger at the chef, there must have been a change in chef because the food is confused and lacking so much knowledge.
Let me just say I did not take pictures, I was not impressed. The only reason I am reviewing is to warn my fellow locals. The first horrible experience was eating a seafood linguine which was clearly from a frozen seafood mixed packed and tasted like it hadn’t even properly defrosted. I left completely unhappy and totally unsatisfied with a $100 bill only to be chased down the road from one of the waiters accusing we had paid the wrong bill and ran off. First of all, guys, if this ever happens to you, you do NOT have to return and pay the correct amount it is simply the waiters problem, their fault and they have to suffer. The waiter was so rude and practically forced me publicly to return to the restaurant and pay the extra amount for food that I wouldn’t even pay $10 for.
Ridiculously I returned, HOPING, PRAYING things might be better. No they were worse. I ordered macadamia crusted barramundi fillet, baked, bok choy, celeriac remoulade & lemon wedge 28. First of all my mistake for not reading that this dish had BOK CHOY in it. I looked at the dish and it was horrible, the macadamia ‘crust’ was huge chunks of raw macadamia lying on top of a flimsy piece of barramundi. Underneath was the celeriac remoulade- which was simply an intense coleslaw and the confused pieces of bok choy, oh and 2 beans? This dish made no sense and was one of the worst things to have ever entered my mouth.
My partner ordered the Cape Grim 300g 100 day organic grain fed NY steak grilled w/ porcini butter baked chat potato, onion & bacon 29. He asked for medium and it came out not rare but blue. Is there a qualified chef in the kitchen? It honestly makes me wonder. Disgusted with the food I had received I then left with a $180 bill.
Over priced, poor service and disgusting food.
I will never return. 1/10 (the score of 1 is for the wine, and the wine only.)
