Blue Ocean Robata and Sushi Bar in Carlsbad Village, Carlsbad
The Blue Ocean Robata and Sushi bar is a very popular and fairly new dining destination in Carlsbad Village, and a fine place to enjoy a wide variety of robata (literally “around the hearth” - from the grill) selections on skewers, nigiri, sashimi, small plates, specialty rolls (the albacore was terrific), sake, and more.
I’m not a sushi expert, but based on my dinner Saturday night this place rocks. The atmosphere is upscale, contemporary, even edgy, and there is a lively vibe to the place. Indeed, my only complaint about eating here was the noise level.
If you are hoping to have a pleasant conversation with dinner companions, I’d go early in the evening, or at least for lunch. Quite frankly it was just too noisy, at least on a busy Saturday night, to really talk without a raised voice. Thankfully the food was great, and our server (ask for Natalia!!) was excellent! Sit at the sushi bar or along the windows, not in the middle of the action – there are too many people walking back and forth.
The warm cashew salad, eaten with large lettuce leaves as wraps, was amazing. Truly! And the skewered shrimp was terrific. Our albacore tuna roll, a restaurant favorite, was pure artistry – visually, and gustatorally!
Blue Ocean Robata and Sushi Bar is open for lunch 6 days a week, Monday through Saturday, from 11 – 2 pm with a number of lunch specials.
You can enjoy $1 oysters during the Happy Hour on Mondays and Tuesdays from 4 – 6 pm. Enjoy Happy Hour Sunday through Thursday.
