We were in to the Blue House Cafe on a Monday night to celebrate a birthday and it was a memorable experience. The staff were great and the food was excellent. They have recently renovated and the changes are very pleasing. For a Monday night I thought it was extremely busy and that to me is always a good sign.... More

Although this restaurant has been in this location for many years and we have frequently been in the area, this was our first visit. They have recently undergone a renovation and we understand they are under new management although have retained the same chef. We visited early week without reservations and had no problem in getting in. We understand as... More

A little neighborhood gem in the NW. Definitely call ahead for reservations on Friday's and Saturday's. If you do go on Friday or Saturday, there will be live Spanish music. Always one of the best parts. It's never so loud that you can't speak to people at your table. It is a bit cramped in there but the food and... More

We both had amazing meals but the place was pretty crowded. Live music, even on Sunday night. We didn't have reservations, but we should have.

This café is off the beaten path in the NW, and we are so happy we found it. The food is excellent, the menu is quite extensive and the specials are unique. We were there on a Monday night, and understand there is live music on the weekends. Would definitely return!

We used to live in Bolivia so were excited to find a restaurant that specialized in South American cuisine, even made reservations. We were seated and waited and waited, read the menu several times, watching the server flit from other tables to other tables kind of circling us as she socialized with customers....not a bad thing really until she finally...

The exterior facade of the Blue House Cafe is very unassuming and then one enters to a restaurant that is simply lovely. The atmosphere is lively, the menu has a great choice of dishes, the food simply delicious and beautifully presented, and the service was superb. This restaurant deserves an excellent and 5 stars! An unfortunate incident with one of... More

Last Thursday hubby and I decided to dine at Blue House, one of our favorite South American cuisine eateries that we've been dining at for more than 10 years. Sadly, that was probably our last visit. The owner/manager was the only "front end staff" acting as bartender/host/server on a busy Thursday night. It is always busy here yet he does... More

Unique and delectable dishes that never fail to surprise my pallet. The menu is not overwhelmingly large, but offers choices for all tastes. The wine list is fabulous. A must if you eat here is the sangria! The South American décor and live guitarist/singer make for a very relaxing evening with your foodie friends. You will probably need a reservation... More

We went there on a Friday night to celebrate my birthday. The restaurant was quite full, in spite of the winter roads. The atmosphere was lively and we were seated at a table for four which allowed us to sit side-by-side and see the singer on the stage. This restaurant is as authentic Latin American as any I have eaten... More
