Really excellent

I only chose this place because of a coupon. Glad I did though. It's small and tucked out of the way in a teeny strip mall. Not where you'd expect to find superior food. But... Calamari was perhaps the best I've ever had - and I've had it in Latin America, Italy, Croatia, etc. I know my... read more

The location and facade of Blue House is very low key, it is in a neighborhood far from the more crowded areas of the city. But we were so impressed the fist time we ate here that we brought our family and friends in our second visit to celebrate a birthday. The main eating area is small so getting a... More

We ate here before. Maybe something changed along with the renovation. Here is the experience. I poured my wine into another glass as the first one felt somewhat crusty along the stem and side of the glass. The bread, two small pieces with about a tsp of butter arrived about three seconds before the main courses. The food was lukewarm.... More

Had a lovely meal here in mid-January. The seafood we ordered was fresh, well-prepared and well-presented. Though the prices were not inexpensive, fresh seafood rarely is. Well worth the trip to the NW. Highly recommended. Bonus: They take reservations!

Our family went to to the Blue House for a birthday celebration. The newly renovated restaurant is lovely, they have kept the menu from the original Blue House, the menu offers an excellent choice of fish, steak, lamb, seafood and more. We have tried many of the menu items and you cannot go wrong with any of the menu items.... More

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!
