“Cool Blue Worth the trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Exquisite setting and professional staff immediately strike the right note for your night out. Unique Mediterranean amuse bouche of olives, golden raisins, & olive oil. served with toasted pitas. If weather permits sit outside overlooking the industrial Kill van Kull waterway. At sunset and after it lights up and you watch the tugs and ships all night. Food is awesome as per Chef Julian who also owns Beso and Bayou, the other 2 legs of our restaurant trio. Sundays in the summer you can order the $25 clambake served 5 different ways including a half lobster and 3 courses. The other night we went for the Prix Fixe (Mon- Wed), $20.13 for 3 courses. Had the Avocado soup (Delicious!) with Chicken with Porcini, a bit salty. Bread pudding with toasted almonds and dried cranberries was perfect for dessert. We shared a $28 white wine from Spain. Excellent glassware to enjoy your wine too. Reservations a must on Fri & Sat.

“Graduation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Beautiful decor and location- waterfront. The food was great. I was worried about my first impression as I called several times to make a reservation for 8 after my daughters graduation and could not get a response after 3 tries, but the staff got there act together for an enjoyable afternoon.

“Great Water View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

Great food and fantastic floor to ceiling water views. The staff is attentive and helpful and the prices are reasonable for the great food. If you are on Richmond Terrace by Snug Harbor be sure you stop in. The only issue is parking is limited because of the small lot.

“Excellent!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

Blue is the number one place to go to dine on Staten Island. The food is top notch. The large window's with a view of the water, make you feel that as the boats sail by you could touch them! The wait staff was great and they make you feel welcomed. On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday's they have a special fixe price menu.

“Excellent dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

We've dined at Blue a number of times now - with larger groups of eight-ten, party of four and table for 2 - each dining experience was memorable. The food is delicious - consistent - not your typical menu. Service is excellent-Leigh and the entire staff are great - friendly, helpful. Terrific bar area and drink selection. On top of all this, the decor and view is remarkable. The only negative is that the restaurant can get a little loud because it is a small place. Can't wait for the outside eating area to be completed. This restaurant is our go to place.
