Everything except the food was terrific. The wait staff were friendly and attentive. Some order mix ups but nothing dramatic. My order of raw oysters was horrible! They were gritty and had a strong aftertaste of old fish. I ordered a dozen and had two. I was afraid to have another. My main course was the beef short ribs with shrimp. The meat was good but the shrimp (3) was overcooked and half still in the shell. The shell was charred. I ate one and didn't have the rest. This came with mashed potatoes and asparagus. The asparagus was done well but the potato was flavorless and dry. I was happy with the blood orange Cosmo however it did not make up for the disappointing food.
Blue Turtle... y’all are SO blessed to have a waiter like Miles on your team!! He was absolutely on point; from his attentiveness to us, as well as by recommending certain dishes, he did NOT let us down in any category. The food is fantastic, and the braised beef Mac-n-cheese was enough for two (thank goodness we didn’t order double). Coconut shrimp was made with fresh coconut and you could really tell! Our first time in Punta Gorda and we will absolutely be back :) thanks again Miles!
4 of us went for dinner and 3 had awesome meals. The fried oysters were pure perfection but one of the medium rare hamburgers was more like a hockey puck than a succulent burger. We'll go back but not for a burger. The wait staff were good and the outside dining was comfortable and attractive. Parking was easy too in the free garage across from the garden. The photo below is missing a few oysters...Did I mention how good they were?
Amazing restaurant with amazing service! Shelby was our waitress, and she was very attentive, personable and cheerful. We had the red snapper and the scallops entrees. They were prepared to perfection! Great atmosphere, and we did not feel rushed trough our meal. It was very relaxing. We will be back.
The members of my party and I loved our experience at this restaurant. The staff was very attentive and the atmosphere was perfect. They also have the option of eating outside in a rear courtyard. I'll definitely go back as often as I can!
