Amazing food with service to match! The seafood sharing was beautiful!
Very nice addition to the Hartlepool culinary scene. A seafood restaurant that serves quality seafood but at a price. The restaurant itself is furnished and designed very thoughtfully with lots of maritime touches and a nice warmth to it. The food is exceptional and put together by a chef who takes pride in his work as he has created a wonderful array of exquisite dishes that are full of flavour. There is a specials board with lobster and steak on that but as I said it does come at a very high cost. We are prepared to pay for the food on offer as its divine but it might just become an exclusive restaurant unless they produce a tea time special or something similar. Be prepared to pay between £6.00 - £12.00 for a starter then a main meal from £15.00 up to the lobster for £38.00 with sides such as chips coming in at £3.50. There is a good array of wines with the house wine at £16.95 and increasing depending on your taste. As I said a very expensive night but one we though was well worth the cost. Also, I must mention the level of service you get is excellent with the young girl serving us a real pleasure with good information about the menu.
We had saved our first visit to coincide with our wedding anniversary we picked a wet and windy cold evening but that was soon dispelled as soon as we walked up the stairs we had a lovely warm reception from the staff who were so helpful on menu selection, to the food my wife had baked cod I had surf and turf on arrival it looked good enough to be pictured in any cook book and it tasted as good as it looked, we where quite full after cleaning our plates but decided to chance a sweet and what a delight all well worth the visit, would we go back, most definately yes.
Had a lovely evening at the Blu Lobster. The food, venue and ambiance was perfect. Kirsty our waitress was a pleasure and very attentive. The window seat was a plus too. Looking forward to going again and trying the rest of the menu.
Prawn cocktail starter average, sauce very watery and no bread, we I understand it takes time to cook meals when using fresh ingredients but waited ages for fish pie main course to arrive no denying it was a fish pie but normally fish pie topped with potatoes this had pastry top think that should have been mentioned in description again we sat and waited ages for waitress to return to clear main course plates as we were going to have desserts and coffee but she never returned heard her on the phone presumably to Fish & Chip shop below telling them she had 2 customers in and when they went she would come down and help them so we realised we were holding proceedings up so paid and left without desserts or coffee. We booked for 1.30pm got there 10 mins early and the last booking time was 1.45pm so they must know how long it takes for customers to eat a 3 course meal if they wanted to close early the should not take bookings at 1.30pm we were very disappointed and would not return.
This is a really lovely restaurant. Staff very friendly. The decor is fantastic, giving a cosy feeling. What I would say about the food ( which was really nice) but the menu needs changing. My husband ordered crab burger which was a soft shell crab battered with shell and everything. Had he know this he would not of ordered it. Menu should of beenmore specific. Would go back again however and would recommend it.
We went with friends that had come to visit - hadn't seen them for a year. We were unaware that there was live music on, which was very loud so it made conversation almost impossible. I had to ask the waitress to repeat what she was saying several times. Although I really enjoyed my meal as did one of my friends, the 2 ladies who had plumped for paella both thought the rice was over cooked and gluppy. It also had chipolata saausages which I think were thrown in as an after thought. I would visit again as I thought my meal was good - but not on a music night, unless the sound was more controlled.
