The restaurant is nice enough but there's nothing about it that makes it feel like a high end place. Food was ok but it didn't blow me away like the price would suggest it should. I asked for oil and balsamic. They came in little decanters and the balsamic had totally spoiled. It tasted and smelled so bad I could... More

Good restaurant with great service. First time trying wagyu tenderloin which was excellent. Price with wine was a little bit on the high side but we had a good experience with. Ah! And the Tomatoes on the Tomato and Mozzarella salad were simply amazing.

Blue grill is an excellent restaurant for steaks, and wine selection. I've had a full three course meal here so I'll try to be as descriptive as possible.
