The food was only OK but the dessert, supposely a "Mil Hojas" from Chile was awful! Whoever baked that has no idea what the torte is about! (It is composed of many, many layers of a very thin pastry and each and every layer is filled with dulce de leche) The music was too loud to have a conversation. Just... More

My wife and I went to The Blue House as it's billed as a "Festive, romantic Latin American restaurant". Upon entering the place is anything but festive, it was uncomfortably quiet, perhaps because the guitar player was missing that night to play. It was just short of 15 minutes after we were seated in the newly decorated restaurant before our... More

After the waitress took my Groupon details she watched my dad pay the full amount of the meal in cash. I watched her count the money and even pause to think what the right thing to do, and she chose the immoral route. A meal for four ended up costing us $280. I wouldn't eat at such an untrustworthy restaurant... More

An unpretentious intimate little place in a primarily residential neighbourhood. Really enjoyed the food and live Latin music. Dishes are a bit pricey, easily set you back $100 for 2 people ... includes two drinks and dessert. Look for deals in Groupon.

We decided to try this tucked away restaurant on a whim, using a SUTP coupon for dinner. We both had the lamb entree. The food was excellent, a touch over-salted, meat was delicious, could have had a bit more veggie on the plate as we left a little hungry. Dessert was good. There was a Peruvian man singing on stage,... More

Four of us for supper. Food was excellent, great decor and loved the music. We also had a very delightful waitress. Husb and I had a shrimp and rice dish which was outstanding and other couple each had a curry dish which they really enjoyed. The only thing I would say, was very noisy. Difficult to have a conversation and... More

We like the live Latin music in the restaurant. The menu is expensive plus 18% mandatory tips which I have never seen in other restaurant. Food is very good, but not in big portion. We will never go back because of the price and 18% tip. If you have never been there, it would be nice to try once.

Had not been here in forever. Great Friday night dinner with my wife. We have been going here nearly 20 years and have never been disappointed. When in doubt the blue house delight is awesome.

We got a groupon for this place and judging from the other reviews online, we almost didn't want to go but glad we did. Most of the negative reviews seems to focus on poor service and bad food but what we got was the opposite. The server was very friendly and right on top of things, however it wasn't an... More
