I highly recommend this place. The atmosphere is very quaint. The food was amazing as was our server. We were in a large group and she was very efficient and friendly!

I've been going to Dharma Blue for over 10 years. I am university prof and always take my international visitors, my interviewees, graduation parties for my graduate students, and best friends to Dharma Blue. I am friend of the owner and have known personally several of the wait staff over the years. Great place for lunch, when it is quieter... More

I took some clients to dinner at Dharma Blue this week and we all had an awesome meal. We all had the daily special which was fresh fish over pecan rice and kale. The fish was fresh and the whole meal was excellent. Their Key Lime pie was superb as well. I will be going back.

Me and my Wife and another couple went to Dharma last night. I had been looking forward to this for 2 weeks. Overall the experience was good except for the price- which for the quantity/quality was (unfortunately) sub-par. Me and my Wife got the Dharma Chips and Bruchetta as an app, and the Paneed Chicken (served with penne pasta in... More

This review is specifically for families with small children under 5. We have had many pleasant experiences here over the years before children. Recently we brought our 3 year old son with us and I will never return to Dharma Blue with or without him. I left in tears. The food is fine. It's fresh. There is plenty of fresh... More

I have always found Dharma blue to have excellent food in the past but lately it has been very mixed. The sushi has stayed consistently good but the Calamari was tasteless as were the fried green tomatoes. I guess they do not serve hot rolls with the dinner orders anymore. The grouper was fresh and I would recommend it was... More

We went to Dharma blue for dinner last week and decided to have sushi. We were very disappointed to say the least. The rice was very sticky and the rolls were falling apart when we tried to pick it up. The Ahi was chewy and fishy. It is fair to say the sushi from publix (which I really don't like)... More

Been going here for years and it is still one of my favorites. It is a uniquely decorated restaurant with inside, outside and bar seating. The entrees are exceptionally good. The sushi is the best in town and the Spring Rolls are wonderful. The service is fast and friendly. It is located in an excellent area of town but when... More
