Food order delivered was not as ordered. Caesar salad was delivered vs chopped salad. Companions were finished dining by the time the correct salad was delivered. Waitstaff was very attentive and the outside patio was quite nice.

Normally I like Blue. Went for Sunday Brunch with a friend first time. Neither one of us thought food was especially good. Mine didn’t have much flavor. The waiter was fabulous. It was very noisy that day. We sat inside.

This is a great spot, however, you cannot sit inside. There is a very bad odor inside the restaurant. The waiter agreed with us. I can mostly describe it as a "wet dog" smell. It was very overwhelming and we had to ask to be seated outside. We were told that the managers "don't smell it" however, I was able to easily, my dining guests were, and 2 servers. Sitting outside was wonderful, and the servers are exceptional. Super friendly and very good at their job. Highly suggest sitting outside if you can, otherwise your meal may be ruined by the stench inside.

Our server, Lina, was excellent .
The lobster roll was more like a salad in a roll, not what I expected, very little lobster . My husband’s steak frites was excellent. The drinks were great and the iced coffee, which Lina made for me was refreshing on a very hot day.

We always enjoy Blue. We’ve dined there many times over the years. More recently, I’ve dined there once a month during the past three months. It’s always been an excellent experience. Unfortunately, tonight Blue did not put its best foot forward, but this was the only time it wasn’t excellent so I hope it was just an off night and not the new norm.
I’ve always experienced excellent service, an inviting and sophisticated atmosphere, and delicious food. Tonight, Blue was just lacking.

Food - the rice was undercooked - it was crunchy.
The salad portion seemed small for a main course compared to other times.
Blue was out of a few items - which seems to be the norm these days with many restaurants.

Service - our waitress was nice but seemed very timid compared to the fun sociable servers we’ve had in the past. She did not ask during our meal how everything was - instead she waited until we were finished eating what we could eat (couldn’t eat the rice). She didn’t ask if any of us wanted coffee. My father-in-law just had to say he would like a cup of coffee as she came over at one point. She brought out their special birthday cake since we were celebrating a birthday, but never asked if we wanted to see a dessert menu. The cake was delicious as always and we enjoyed it, but just the courtesy of asking if anyone would like coffee or a different dessert would have been appreciated.

I know it is a difficult time - restaurants are busy and short staffed. But Blue seemed to be on track to not let this show. Unfortunately, tonight it showed.

Hoping the little things tonight were just due to an off night. Will return because we know Blue can do better.

We were celebrating our 40th anniversary and the waiter made us feel special. They even treated us with a humongous dessert at the end of our meal. Was a very memorable dinner. Food was excellent and staff were superb.

We have been to Blue many times and it is a local favorite. Unfortunately this last time we were very unimpressed. We both asked for filets to be medium and they came out medium well. The mashed potatoes were dry and my husbands crab cake was over done. We are hoping this was just an off night and not the standard anymore.

I have to first say that the waiter was amazing. He was very attentive and regularly checked on us and refilled drinks. Now, the food tasted very good BUT 2 of our orders were made wrong. My daughter ordered NY strip and wanted Mac n cheese, but not with crab, waiter said that was not a problem they can do that…it had crab in it when it came. But we didn’t say anything about it, just told her to try it, she ate some but didn’t like it.

My son got the 10 oz Filet asked for medium rare, with the jasmine rice. My son’s filet came out medium well the first time, which they apologized and took back and went to remake it for him….it took over 15 minutes for the filet to come and we were all done with our meals by the time it came. Then my son cut into it, and it was medium. So at this point my son just said he’ll eat it, it’s fine because we were all done eating and just waiting for him.

The manager was very apologetic and they comped my son’s filet and gave us a desert on the house. Not sure we will go back if my son is with us, lol. I like my steak medium so it was cooked perfectly, but they seem to have an issue with medium rare, and I’m assuming would have an issue with rare steak as well.

The salad we ordered was good, and the ice cream pie desert was delicious!

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.

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.
