I've been here only a few times over the last 10 years. My last visit was probably the first time I ordered a steak because the steak prices have always seemed very high to me. I got the bone in ribeye medium rare which cost $51 and all steaks come with no sides. I was very disappointed with my steak, it was very grizzly and not near as good as a ribeye at Longhorn steak house.

On a positive note the short ribs that my wife got were excellent. The crab dip appetizer was also very good.

The volume level was high in general and that was before the infant at the next table started screaming.

If I ever go back I surely will NOT order any of the way overpriced steaks!

Service was horrible. Had 4:45 P.M. reservations and received our dinner after 6:00 P.M. no appetizers, just a salad. Never checked in to see how it was. Was there almost 2 hours and didn’t even get a dessert, we requested our bill and left.
Food was mediocre at best. Ribs were tough and tasted like they were reheated. Scallops were not completely cooked through. Will never go back to this restaurant.
Place where we were seated was very busy and the floor shook every time someone walked past making you feel you were on a moving vehicle.
Terrible experience.

It was honestly better than I could’ve ever expected! I used to work at Blue and never got the chance to try their food, but I went with my family and tried a variety of different things. It was an amazing experience in every way and would definitely recommend it to anyone. My family has been raving about it since the second we left the booth.

Our family went to Blue for a celebration dinner. It is one of our favorite restaurants because the service is always impeccable and there is something on the menu for everyone. The oysters, shrimp cocktail, and tuna tartar apps were phenomenal. The ribeye and filets were cooked perfectly. Our son said his steak burger and fries were delicious. The cocktails are always a treat. If I have to make any criticisms, they would be that the butter seemed fresh from the fridge and was too hard to spread on the wonderful fresh bread in the bread basket and both the bernaise and hollandaise sauces were broken. We didn't make a big deal out of it because the steaks and asparagus were both so good they really didn't even need sauce. Our sides were generously portioned, enough for all four of us. We indulged in deserts, and were so happy with both the dark chocolate mousse cake and the s'mores creme brulee. It was a wonderful evening and we will be back for future special occasions!

My Fillet was done perfectly and very tender. My wife ordered the same but had to be re-fired because it came out rare instead my medium well. For dessert I ordered the chocolate creme' brule' which I wasn't a fan of. Other wise, it passed the test. It's a "go back" rating for me.

Seated immediately with Pat as our waitress. Large healthy cocktails started us off.
We a party of three decided to share appetizers. Beginning with the bday fried calamari In the area we nibbled on a variety of breads
Then we shared a crab dip with chunks of naan. The dip was warm and cheesy but did not let the crab flavor or texture come thru
We had a baked Btie warm and runny. Great Brie flavor melting on your young as well as the plate
A flat bread margarita style ended the feast.
This mixture may have been too rich in cheese for some but was satisfying for us.

The Blue Grill nailed in on Wednesday night. We were a party of 4 friends and had calamari and bruchetta appetizers, caesar salad, lobster bisque, NY strip, ribeye, shrimp and scallops and the world famous hula pie for dessert. Our server killed it and a good time was had by all.

Decided to take my friend out for lunch, celebrating her birthday. We had prompt service and the food was delicious. We even got a Hula Pie ,on the house, because it was her birthday. I have never had a bad experience at Blu. I love to dine here.

Was not happy with my dish that was recommended. First time there and ordered the sundried encrusted chilean sea bass. I read the description and sounded delicious but not good at all, my fish was slimy and the sundried tomatoes were soooo overwhelming. I don't know if I would go there again. I just think it was too much of an expensive dinner to not turn out good and ended up eating like a quarter of it and didn't want to take it home so my $42 for that plate was a waste. Really thought this place met my expectations.

My significant other and I enjoyed a very good lunch. Our waitress was very nice, friendly and welcoming. The food was great. He had the veggie hoagie and soup and I had the Reuben. Both sandwiches were delicious. A fresh pot of decaf coffee was brewed for us too. Blue is a great spot for any meal. Also we asked for a table away from other diners which was easily done.
