Somewhere in the middle of Pacific City in Huntington Beach (a complex similar to the Grove) sits a very popular restaurant known for their brunch. With breathtaking ocean views, Bluegold is something that is casual with a little bit of finesse. The restaurant serves up popular breakfast items with a twist along with deliciously crafted cocktails.
Upon arrival at 12:30pm, we were told they were seating us at the best seat in the house but that it would be a few minutes before we could be seated (we had changed our reservation from 12:30pm to 1:00pm to avoid being late). My friend and I went to grab a drink at the bar and waited to pass the time. We weren't seated til about 1:30pm, a full thirty minutes past our reservation and an hour of waiting. Additionally,it took them another 40 minutes to serve us our food following our order. We had ordered a hot mocha, which ended up being cold. Thankfully, they remedied the situation by making a new one. I mean, I'm cool with waiting, but it was kinda ridiculous how long we waited for the food being served. That being said, a few of the dishes we ordered were delicious and some not so much.
Overall, Bluegold has the potential to be good. The views are amazing and it's perfectly located for a great weekend brunch out. I just thought it lacked what was needed to be a great experience, i.e. long waits for seating and service. The dish that saved this place was the milk rolls cause they were ridiculously good. Would I come back here? Maybe just for the milk rolls....
