This place is awful. I left extremely disappointed. There are three things a good restaurant should have and this place lacks all three. The environment was not even pleasant, I felt claustrophobic to where I almost had to ask our entire party if we could go somewhere else. The place isn't even made to fit the expensive prices you pay for the poor little portions you receive, you pay for an environment that isn't even worth it. The food was awful and pricey for what you pay for. All our orders were plates that were something that would be given as finger food to a guest you have at your own home. The service was also poor as well. Not sure why people rave about this place. It's just a trendy name that everyone wants to follow.

Our server was RUDE. When she failed to get our order correct, she blamed us. When asked to repeat the specials for the day, she told us we should have asked her to speak louder. Everyone who ordered soup, got it COLD---we were just so starved by waiting so long for our order that we ate it anyway. I had the chicken salad sandwich---blech! It was dry and nothing in the "salad" but shredded chicken and mayonnaise topped with a few dried cranberries. It looked like something my five-year-old would have made. The prices are very high for the food you get. They won't divide the check but expect customers to do the math for them---with current food ordering software in place by restaurants, this is lazy and inexcusable. Oh yes, and automatic gratuity built in. If you want yummy food served by nice people who are working hard to please you---STAY AWAY FROM BLUE DAHLIA!

This place is really cute--we sat on the back patio for lunch and I loved the atmosphere. There was lots of greenery, bistro tables, and sun peaking in. My best friend really loved the food (she had already been there before) but I wasn't as impressed. Everything is really solid, but it's just not that spectacular. However, I would recommend this place because I like the decor and think it's a great lunch place.

I came here on a whim for Happy Hour with no expectations. Blue Dahlia Bistro has a great one-of-a-kind atmosphere. I dined in their back patio area, which felt like a zen garden with all the bamboo shoots surrounding the fence. For food I definitely recommend the Smoked Salmon tartine (open sandwich). The herb cream cheese with the salmon are a perfect match for each other. On the sweeter side, I would recommend the Blue Dahlia Brie with walnuts tartine. The Board of Cheeses consists of 5 cheeses paired with apple slices, grapes, bread, and a mango papaya jam which was delicious. Service isn't very attentive. It took a while for a server to come take our order, and it wasn't even our server. Actually, I don't think we ever saw our server whose name was supposedly Corey...but did we see a Corey...we'll never know. dun dun dun. There was a really cute calico cat lounging around that kept us occupied while we were waiting. But despite the slow unattentive service, while we were dining it just so happens that they were drilling holes in the fence for candle holders. The owners came to each table in the back patio and apologized in advance for the loud noise and gave each table a complimentary dessert on them. OK! I got the Sea Salt Caramel Gelato and it was the bomb! I thought the gelato would be a small scoop, but it turned out to be one massive scoop...definitely worth it. With great food and great atmosphere, I will be back. I want to try their bunch menu items too.
