Newly Remodeled but same great food, menu and great friendly staff! I was so happy to be back and they had JUST reopened. I would have been so sad if they had not been open! I think the new kitchen featured next to the bar is beautiful! I do believe the Hangar Steak portion was a bit LARGER than before... More

My husband and I dined at Bluestem last evening. We came early to experience the Paloma shrub in the bar, an acclaimed drink of theirs, but they did not have it. We enjoyed another cocktail which was good. We were seated and ordered the five course meal with wine pairings. My first course was the English Pea soup which was... More

I've never been disappointed at Bluestem and certainly wasn't on our most recent visit. It was our first time back since the entire interior had been remodeled and the food, service, and surroundings were all outstanding. The interior was recently remodeled to showcase an open kitchen. We were seated near the kitchen and were able to watch as the meals... More

Our party of 3 enjoyed a magnificent 3 course prix-fixe dinner at Bluestem in Westport, preceded by a cocktail in the comfortable bar area where James Beard award chef Colby Garrelts came over to see how we were doing. It was our first experience at this fine dining establishment, but we can't wait to return. From the starting warm cheese... More

The food was excellent. We were there with 24 people and they put us in a back room together, so we had a great time. There are locally grown items and good, healthy delicious choices on the menu. Service was a little slow for some of our group, but I think we had a brand new waitress. All the staff... More

We met another couple for dinner - good thing we had reservations! The staff were knowledgeable and friendly, the atmosphere funky and fun. We were all impressed with the amount of information the staff willingly shared with us on the fare and wine pairings. We took our time and enjoyed the experience. The only reason this is not a 5...

I absolutely love this restaurant. There are a lot of restaurants where you can get an excellent meal, but what makes Bluestem stand out from the rest is that they are not just serving food, they are serving art. Every piece that comes out of their kitchen is an artwork that has been lovingly and laboriously prepared. For that reason... More
