We had a terrific dinner here. With reservations on Valentine's Day, we were seated promptly upon arrival. The tables were a bit tight, but not so badly that we felt crowded. Our server Grady was attentive and helpful, but not overbearing. We had the mussels,...More

Four of us had dinner at Cafe Bleu recently. It was our first visit. We were all extremely pleased with the menu, prices and quality of the food. However, don't expect china and silver. This is a neighborhood jewel. We will go again.

We went to Cafe Bleu last night for our 30th anniversary and couldn't be happier with our choice. It's a little gem of a place; reminds us of many similar places we've been in Chicago over the years. Service was timely, friendly, and efficient throughout...More
