Have eaten there several time and the food is inconsistent as far as quality. They have a nice bar side and the appetizer's are good.

Food quality is still okay and good portion size, but the selection of beers are much lesser and they offer no appropriate or matching glasses. Service is just so so, absolutely not great. Overall, it's okay but not a nice one anymore.

The food was good (and plentiful!), and the service was attentive and friendly. I have my beer likes, which might be narrow, but my preferences were not met here, not by a mile. No matter the rest of its pluses, if they miss on the beer they strike out. My beer preference? IPA. There is nothing even in the neighborhood... More

The Blue Marlin has been around for ages. There are 3 locations in Suzhou. This food is not bad, burgers/pizza/steak and the usual local dishes. The bar is why most people come here and often has a good vibe. Prices are fine and service is OK as well.

I have been to Blue Marlin over a period over 4 years. Good thing is the band is back and makes the place a good reason to visit. The restaurant is next to the bar and most dishes are western style. The quality is ok but better than before. Prices are on the high side for Suzhou. But ok it's... More

I wouldn't recommend it as a restaurant since i've give it a try a few times and it was always just ok. But it is definitely a good place to meet friends and have some cocktails after work or on the weekends while listening to live music

Western style bar/restaurant with good atmosphere. Staff and food were great and reasonably priced - only one down side - ordered starters and main course and both arrived together. TIP - order your courses separately.

I came back after more than 10 years. Didn't change to much inside. Outside and area around all new. Very nice service, good food, cold beer.

This is close to my hotel, so I like to stop by after work to grab a beer. Not sure if the band(s) play during the week, but on the weekends its nice to kick back and watch them play. Beer is a bit expensive, but its still a good way to finish the day. Many expats and some locals... More
