Blue Dahlia Bistro in Westlake is a great place to go to escape the traffic and crowds, particularly on the weekends. There is another location on East 11th as well but since I live close to the Westlake area, this is my 'go to' restaurant.
The food is fresh and prepared beautifully. The atmosphere is very 'bistro' like and has an outdoor patio with lights in the trees as well. I tend to order the same dishes every time I visit. The cheese platter is varied with olives, cornichons, cheeses and meats. An abundance of savory breads accompany the cheese platter. The ravioli is tender and so flavorful. The Dijon mussels are wonderful!!!! Their desserts are great but the macarons sell out quickly and at our last visit were gone before we had the chance to savor!
Blue Dahlia does not serve cocktails. Wine is the adult beverage of choice. I'm not even sure if they have beer since I'm not a beer drinker. The staff is very wine saavy and can assist in helping you order the type of wine you prefer.
All in all this place is great and very convenient in terms of parking and ease of getting a table.
