My husband and I went to bluestem on Friday Sept 16 2016. We were seated near the kitchen, which was a happy surprise because we both enjoyed watching chef Andrew plate the food. I had the watermelon gazpacho, foie gras, seared ahi tuna, pork belly and the semifreddo for my 5 course meal. My husband chose the marinated cucumbers, braised... More

Went for our anniversary and could not have been happier with our choice. Had the 10 course tasting menu with wine pairings. Cocktails to start (disappointed that they did not have Bombay Sapphire...offered Plymouth gin instead which was a nice alternative but they should have the basics...) Service was terrific...all were attentive but not intrusive. Food was all excellent...nothing -... More

had the 5 course paired/dinner - loved it. However if you expect to party or do something else later forget it.

This is a hard review for me to write. How do you rate a meal when everything is great, except the main course? I settled on 4 stars. The main course should have been 2 1/2, but everything else was a 5. My wife and I had wanted to try this place for ages. We had heard about all the... More

Made a dinner reservation for us last Friday, June 24 at 8:30 PM. The door host was immediately attentive, greeted us with a smile and checked off our name. We arrived about a half-hour early and had a seat at the bar. Although there weren't many patrons waiting for drinks at the bar itself, the bartenders seemed busy & overwhelmed... More

Always great. A must do for travelers. Service is fabulous. Restaurant side is pricey. So we usually eat and drink on the bar side. Menu changes seasonally. Best advice: Order dessert first then you always have room.

My second visit to Bluestem. First was for drinks, tonight was for dinner. Bluestem is comfortable, friendly, and does have an interesting menu. I was dining solo so ate in the bar at the 'dessert counter'. Service was top notch, friendly and helpful. There is good communication within the staff, too as they knew I was looking at maybe the...

The local farm to table menu offers 3 different pre-fix menus - 3, 5 or 10 courses with optional + additional wine pairings. We (a group of four) got 5-course - each was perfect in size + tasted amazing. The space was perfect, the service was great (we had Paul as our server) but make sure you have an ample... More

Very informal low key interiors with attentive service and interesting combinations of egg dishes for brunch. Natives say that dinners are outstanding and very creative.

The table was ready early, the wine pairing was exceptional (we ordered different dishes), the food wonderful, though the rib-eye was exceptionally lean and a bit tough. All in all, Bluestem does it again, a terrific meal and easy to choose menu. 3, 5 or 10 courses at fixed price levels. Small portions, but enough to eat, mst everyone will... More
