The bar area is good if only you're planning to have drinks only. Otherwise, if you would like to have your lunch or dinner, please please go somewhere else. The food is extremely bad. Don't let the casual atmosphere fool you as the restaurant, chairs and carpets are pretty dirty. I think the kitchen has some issues with the airflow as when you order fish, the smell from kitchen comes back to dining area. Anyone can guess what you had from the menu from the smell of your shirt or jacket when you go home. The servers are there just to take your order or bring your plate. You have no chance to get their attraction for ordering extra stuff, even asking the check.

Pretty bad.........................................................................Originally from Pittsburgh, I have now been to Blue ABOUT 10 times over the past 5 years. The restaurant is hidden away in an old shopping center with a huge vacancy rate. The original owner/CHEF did a fine job but has since opened a new restaurant after selling blue to the previous owner of the bordering pizza shop which was boarded up, and has since closed. Staffing and personal issues have plagued the restaurant and remain unresolved. The owners brother was hired as the executive chef and I believe was let go, then brought back again, then let go again. One of his previous chefs was also let go then brought back and remains the current executive chef. The place is a bit dirty (dust balls in the rafters!?), the food is MEDIOCRE at best and the decor is in a word DATED. The staff changes every month and the general manager, too inexperienced to even run a McDonald's much less a fine dining eatery could care less. It's not that the food is bad its that it isn't really good and extremely expensive. Save your money and go somewhere similar which will end up being a little more than half the price and a much better meal.

Our server was very nice but not really the most knowledgable, having said that she always found out what we needed to know and got back to us. At no point were we rushed which I love when I go out to dinner. Food was excellent! Strawberry salad to start was delicious and Rack of Lamb with mushroom risotto......lamb was cooked perfectly to my taste and the risotto was creamy. We have never had a bad meal at Blue. Once the band started and they played uptempo songs the noise level was a little high but the music did not start until we were finished our meal and the whole place was packed so the atmosphere was really good.

Great especially with Bobby bartending the appetizers are very good and go well with the premium drinks. The dinners are good and well thought out. Previous reviewers said the decor was dated... I don't think so and I'm 29 and find it to be what I expect for a martini bar. Back to Bobby he is by far one of the best bartenders I have ever seen. His drinks are mixed well, loaded with a good amount of alcohol and are very consistent. This place is a good value during happy hour as the martinis are decently priced. After happy hour you should be ready to pay a premium for the drinks. They are not overpriced by any means there just what you would pay anywhere. I have never had a bad experience in the 10 or so times I have been here. I have never had a hangover as well which is very surprising given some nights when I was particularly thirsty.

My wife and i went there on a Saturday night, only half the tables occupied. It took 1 hour to receive our appetizer and final left 2.5 hours later, the food was over priced and poorly cooked. The only good thing about Blue is exist door and seeing the sunrise the next morning as we walked to our car.
