My fiance and I ate at blue and had a great experience. Our server was Ramon and he was outstanding. He made sure that our glasses were always full, table was clean, replaced our silverware and he also took some pictures of us at our request. We were expecting a couple pictures at our table, but he took us around... More

Very interesting first visit to blue. The atmosphere was a delight! Quiet,calm, and inviting after a long day. We started with specialty drinks that were not common at this time. They came out a bit weak, but the bartender tried to repair them, and they were ok. The meal was great. Soups and salads for appetizers. Steak and crab for... More

We went to Blue to celebrate a special occasion. We were not disappointed. Flowers were waiting for us at the table. Jeremy, our favorite waiter was assigned to us. We asked for a slow service and got it. No rushing us out! The slow food movement would be proud. Dinner was good quality: filet, lobster, smashed Yukon golds and sautéed... More

We have occasion to join @z blue Grillhouse again this month. As always the service was amazing. I don't know if I ever had better service at another restaurant anywhere in the country. The food was exceptional and the wine was a great value. The atmosphere inside was rich, comfortable and sufficiently private. The outside of the grill house was... More

A group of 10 people from neighborhood went for dinner, and was fortunate to get the back room behind the bar. I have dined at Blue many, many times and is one of my favorite restaurants in Lehigh Valley, if not my favorite. Dinner with a large group in the back room is especially enjoyable. Unfortunately, this time was not... More

I've been here many times and it seems that the chef doesn't know how to cook a steak requested by the patron. I've been more than once where my colleagues steak wasn't cooked to order. Recently I had the steak taken back and it still wasn't done right so I got the scallops instead and they weren't good either. I... More

I expected more. This is a beautiful restaurant, and the service was excellent, but the food left a little to be desired. While all was good, it was not great - not what I was expecting for the price, which was a bit steep. The salads were unremarkable. I ordered scallops that were good, but I've had better at less...
