Tasty and Ample

We went out as a group of six, and had a great evening. We were started with warm house made bread that was to die for. The appetizers were ample and extremely flavourful, each item had a different sauce. The entree's were also ample and the sauces again were different on each item, we all shared... read more

The food was decent. Although I thought it would be a little better and a little fresher for the price of it. I used a coupon from the coupon book which was buy one entree get one free (maximum $20 value). My entree cost almost $30 and my boyfriends cost just over $40. We also ordered a bottle of wine....

Blue House is a small, intimate restaurant. The wine selection is decent and you're in for a treat if you like seafood. If you plan to visit on a Friday or Saturday evening, reservations are recommended. They offer live music on weekend evenings and on Valentine's Day (tres romantique).

Dined many times at this lovely restaurant. The beef and seafood are the reason that I return. The sauces make your mouth tingle. Live accoustic music makes your dining experience very special, which you don't find in too many places.

Don't let the quaint exterior fool you -- the food here is fantastic. I bring visitors here all the time from out of town and every time it surprises people. I'd recommend the lamb in coffee vermouth -- unexpectedly delicious!

I took my girlfriend here for her birthday. It was so amazing, the food was so far beyond expectations and the staff were awesome! It is a nice quaint spot that looks like nothing at all from the outside. The other patrons even sang Happy Birthday to her! I would certainly recommend it and will definitely be back!

We returned to this restaurant after having had a great meal a number of years ago. The food, under NEW management, is really awful. One meal that was to have a prime rib served "medium" was served rare, and the second meal that was a chicken meal was inedible. Chicken was so over done it couldn't even be cut with... More

Hello Debbie, I apologize for the experience you endured at your latest visit to The Blue House.. It really does concern me as we have had many great reviews since taking over last year. Our Chef remains the same and has been there for 25 years and our Health inspections have all past with close to 100% ratings. I would... More

Our first visit here was over 2 years ago and despite rave reviews from several friends, we were very disappointed in the quality of the food. We came back last week and were pleasantly surprised with the renovations and new-ish management. The food was completely opposite from our first visit - the seafood dishes we ordered were all very well... 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
