A great place to meet for either a casual or business lunch. The food is consistently good. The daily risotto is a highlight but I always order the mussels and have never been disappointed. Additionally the evening crowd is upscale and lively. Only question; why do they open the windows on a busy street in the summer? If you enjoy... More

The food here is nothing special. The menu never changes. Nice space and fine service but the food is not a high point.

When visiting our family in Needham we had passed this restaurant multiple times. We decided to try it tonight with our children and grandchildren and were quite pleased. Nice atmosphere - a little noisy but that is because they are child friendly and it was an early reservation. A very diverse and reasonably priced menu. Everything was well prepared and... More

One of the great finds from this quiet suburban. The menu has plenty to choose from. Wonderful service by our waiter. I personally like the crab cakes, and steak. It was cooked perfectly.

I ate here while in town for business. The food was delicious (Lobster roll!), and the atmosphere was lively. I really enjoyed the meal, and will definitely be back next time I'm in town.

Discovered this place while exploring Needham and Newton. Now my favorite place for business lunches. Service is excellent...never too noisy...and a great lunch selection. The salads are my favorite although Blue makes great burgers.

One of the best restaurant in Needham, MA. I love the fact that they have some good vegetarian options. I love the pasta with broccoli. Price is okay from a US market perspective. Service is very good. Highly recommend.

Tried Blue for the first time on Friday night (Halloween). The food was outstanding! My wife had a roasted half chicken and I had a center cut pork chop. Both were cooked to perfection. Unfortunately, the service was Half hearted. Our waitress poured water but did not ask if we wanted drinks. She finally came back after about 10 minutes.... More

Best place in Needham to watch a game or meet a friend when you want an upscale atmosphere. Wines by the glass are well-chosen and cocktails are delicious, although given the vibe of the place, they should have seasonal cocktails. All the food is good - my favs are the tuna appetizer, arugula salad, the daily risottos and the fish.... More
