Nice Spot in Downtown

The Dharma Blue is a good choice for an evening meal, especially outside. The service is efficient, and the food much better than average.

If you are a sushi lover, then this is your new favorite restaurant. The sushi bar is the focal point of this upbeat restaurant and also the best seat in the house! David, Kim and Ben will keep you entertained as they expertly create your sushi selections. The Red Ruby Roll is the ultimate! The sashimi is fresh and melts... More

I've been here 3 times in the last month. I usually sit on the porch about 2-3 o'clock soaking in some winter sun. The cuisine is simply excellent both in taste & presentation. The liquid libations are plentiful. A perfect place for an intimate rendezvous.

I recently dined at Dharma Blue with my parents for their anniversary. We all loved the atmosphere with local art as a big part of the decor. I started with the Rock'n'Roll, a sushi roll with eel and salmon and it was quite possibly the best sushi I have ever had. Mom got the crab cakes and dad got the... More

This is a quaint little place; not a lot of seating, but quickly was able to make room for our party of 9. Had amazing service from Kyle. The food was great, the atmosphere is a little quirky but that made it fun. Would definitely recommend.

My husband and I had visited Dharma Blue years ago (in 2000!), on our first overnight trip together as a couple. We were excited to go back with my in-laws and some friends, and we had a perfectly acceptable dinner. The decor was as inviting as I remember it (nice stuff on the walls, good lighting), but the menu was... More

This is a very fine but informal restaurant in a brilliantly adapted old house in heart of Historic District. Seafood choices and daily specials are intelligent and creative.

Our daughter was visiting us from Maine. We always like to go somewhere different for Mother's Day when she is here. Such a great assortment for Mother's Day Brunch!
