My husband had one of the best porterhouse steaks of his life last evening, perfectly cooked and truly memorable. My sea bass was also outstanding. We really appreciate the booths, as the noise is far less in these and we can talk comfortably.

The price you pay for what you get doesn’t add up, I wouldn’t return here again. The sea bass was glazed in something that was too sweet, the sides weren’t anything special. We could’ve cooked the meal in our own home. Plus the drinks were way too strong or on the weaker side, no consistency.

Very good. We did have to remind waiter that we were celebrating a birthday, however. It had been put on the reservation and there was a least one mention during the meal.

First time here and the food and atmosphere were perfect. Prices on the menu were steep, but the food was that came out was a direct reflection of the culinary expertise. Our server, Nisalie was superb. I would recommend this establishment if you’re looking for a fancy night out without the stuffy feeling.

Highly recommend. Wonderful indoor and outdoor seating. Wonderful meal, and the server was excellent! He has been there from the beginning and it showed. SO personable and the manager came over twice to check on our meal. Celebrating my husband's birthday and they brought him a piece of the awesome Hula Pie, which is a must when you go!

I guess it must have been an off nite at the broiler. Most everything else was pretty good. Blue is definitely taking advantage of inflation, all the prices were up 10-15%. Apps were timely, drinks were tasty and the Sea Bass dinner was excellent. The problem came down to the 14oz ribeye, oven baked to a lifeless medium rare. No sear, no crust, just a baked light brown lifeless steak with too much fat that hadn't been intensely heated enough to melt and form a delicious buttery texture. I sent it back and the manager returned for a drop and run, it was flash fried in a pan but not nearly the result it should have been. Didn't even stick around because he knew it was terrible.
For a 4 star steakhouse selling a $45 ribeye, there is no excuse.

Dull Porterhouse, with neutral taste and pasta with tons of salt. Starters were good.
Though the meat cooked to the right request.

The inner balcony look cheap (tables, floor, chair) and not part from the restaurant ambient atmosphere. The chairs aren't comfortable

Great service and excellent food. This restaurant has a dress code which was not enforced by all patrons. A little disappointing to see shorts, sneakers and tee shirts when the attire required is business casual. Tables are a little close together so the noise level is a bit high if you're looking for an intimate night out.

Everything was just Ok. Are waitress was very nice but not knowledgeable. The bus girl was nice but dropped something every time she cleared the table. Most food was good mine was a bit over cooked. I have been here many times on don’t mind paying the prices because I have always received exceptional service with exceptional food this time everything was just OK.

Overall great experience. Our server Lina did a great job taking care of our needs during our dinner. Jeremy who we normally have as our server stopped by to say hello which was very nice. We were celebrating our son’s birthdays, both enjoyed being at Blue very much.

Been here dozens of times, food is always on point and service goes above and beyond. Only complaint I have is that on a few occasions I’ve seen men allowed in the indoor dining area with open toed sandals, baseball hats, gym shorts, and t shirts. Not sure if there is a dress code but that certainly has a negative effect on the ambience. I can understand that type of dress wear being allowed in the outdoor dining area but not the indoor.

We'd eaten at Blue many times before the pandemic and always enjoyed it, but for us, this was the best ever at that restaurant -- and one of the best anywhere. Salmon was perfect, Ragu Pasta dish was super-delicious, and the desert (complimentary for anniversaries) was amazing. And our server was wonderfully skillful and gracious. -- made us feel so welcome. A great evening!

The reason I gave 4 starts . The lamb was a bit fatty. And when they give you the specials they don't give the price. Other than that , I love blue grille house.

Our server, Jeremy, was outstanding. My husband got the sea bass, which he said was so tender and flavorful. I got the beef rib en route which was out of this world! French onion soup was excellent. I typically order the filet mignon which is always superb. This time, however, I wanted to try the chicken breast. It was okay. The flavor was very good. It was kind of on the dry side and could have used a lot more of the corn relish, which was amazing! I should have asked for more. That was my fault. The huge slice of anniversary cake they give you is unbelievable! THANK YOU TO JEREMY AND THE STAFF AT THE BLUE FOR PROVIDING US YET ONE MORE WONDERFUL MEAL!!
