After the soup and salad course we waited 30minutes for the entrée and were reassured it would be right out. After 45 we asked for our bill and paid it and left. It's the first time in our life my husband left a one penny tip. And it wasn't as if they were slammed ~ a gentleman came in after... More

We returned to Blue Bamboo this past week as we were returning from a long trip. We had a wonderful full meal here the first time we visited. It was just as great this time. We did mainly comfort food this time. We had for starters the Dragon Whiskers as usual and the 5 appetizer sampler which consists of 1... More

Last night went back to blue bamboo restaurant for terrific experience . We started by sharing an assortment of delicious appetizers...The Tuna Ceviche, Dragon Whisker's, Calamari, Duck Wanton, Panko Fried Tomato's all delicious. We then decided to split three different entrees. I thought the Talapia had more flavor then I ever had before. We finished up with their homemade Mandarin... More

One of my favorite restaurants. We eat here almost every time we visit and it is ALWAYS delicious. Great presentation, service, and is worth the money. I also recommend picking up Dennis's cookbook when you visit. YUM! Try the dragon whiskers and the orange cake!

This is not your traditional Chinese restaurant, and does not pretend to be. Chef Dennis blends in marvelous ways his Chinese and US Southern background. The Blue Bamboo was recommended to us by the owner/chefs of other Jacksonville restaurant. There are correct: Chef Dennis brings a fresh interpretation to each dish beginning with the opening appetizer: Fried Dragon Whiskers. The... More

I really wanted to enjoy this restaurant, even though there were some negative reviews, and had high hopes based on overall good reviews and press. Unfortunately, the visit was a real disappointment. We ordered a appetizers, entrees, family sides, and desserts and not a single dish impressed us on the merits of food quality, taste, or ingenuity. Adding insult to... More

Dennis Chan's take on Asian-inspired comfort food is a marvel. The decor and menu speak class and fine dining while the amazing service speaks comfort and warmth. Chef Dennis is an incredible host who makes a personal visit to each table and he will not let you leave until you are completely satisfied. The food is such a wonderful take... More

Blue Bamboo is a pan-asian restaurant. Often that means bland pseudo-Asian food tailored to perceived American tastes. While I am not sure the cuisine is genuinely authentic to any one Asian country, it is not only stylistically Asian but, more importantly, it is very very good. The Chicken in Lettuce Wrap appetizer, with a hoisin flavor that is slightly tangy... More

Went there for lunch and had an excellent wrap that was different from anything we had had. The owner came out and talked with us and we had an excellent waitress

We were here 02/18 for dinner. Unfortunately my experience here is not so great. The main courses are not even close to anything I have had in any high end restaurant in Asia. I got the most expensive dish, which was the Lamb @ almost $40 and it was just blah okay. I was kind of expecting a bit more... More
