“Great wine tasting dinner”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

This was a five course dinner with a great Champagne as a an aperitif and a well-paired wine with each course. The price was $75 per person including the wines (which flowed freely), but excluding tax and tip, so figure about $100 per person. The wines come from Cotuit Liquors and they describe them and hope to sell some. The Champagne was from Drappier. I had never heard of them, but now we own a case - it was that good. A Pouilly-Fume accompanied some marinated Alaskan King Salmon - good and a good pairing. Next came a bit of foie gras in puff pastry with wild mushrooms - one of my favorites and even better with a 2009 Latour Chassagne-Montrachet rouge. We bought a case of this also. The vintage was great and it's getting difficult to find a bottle with this much age in a wine store. A braised wild boar with ginger spiced bread and celeriac was served with a full bodied 2011 Crozes-Hermitage - another great dish and pairing. We have four cases of Crozes-Hermitage in the basement, so we didn't order any more. The main course was a tenderloin with a shallot confit paired with a Ch Lalande Borie 2008, a second wine of Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou. We ended with a Bosch Pear almond cream gratin with apple cider vinegar and an 2011 Alsatian gewurztraminer. We were all quite pleased with the service, food, and wine.

“Very Nice Ambience and even Better Food.”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

This was a second visit to Bleu in the past month and we were even more pleased than on the first which was also an excellent experience.

It started with a welcoming hostess and a friendly waitress who quickly approached us with warm crispy bread and took our drink order.

For starters we had the onion soup and Caesar salad and then shared the sea scallops which were very well prepared. On the previous visit my wife had the pan-seared salmon and I had the lamb shank shepherd's pie.

I found that on both visits the food was served hot and very well prepared and was delicious. The only fault I might find was that some of the romaine was browning. We didn't try the desserts, but people near us all seemed to enjoy them.

The prices are a little on the high side, but the food makes them worth it. The wine by the glass was reasonably priced.

Overall, a very nice restaurant with very good, well prepared food.

“Not sure any more”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

Used to love this restaurant...not sure if I am ordering the wrong thing. Had lunch 2x recently and just not sure how I feel now. Slivers of apple in salad were so tiny it was difficult to get the taste. Onion soup was thin. Everyone else was pleased with their meal so it just must be me.

“Where's the server too”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

Went for a lunch last Tuesday at 12:45. Had reguested a booth and they were on top of it and got the table I asked for. Things started off good. We were haveing a meeting regarding a family issue so we asked for things to be paced. Started with drinks; Well made, apps, a middle course and then entrees The bill was $210.00 and somewhere in the middle we lost our server. Someone brought our apps after a very long wait. Then no checked after our meals were brought. THEN WE BOTH had to get up and look for the server.
Food was ok.and we have dined here before with great service. At $210.00 for lunch hit or miss won't do. Strange. We will return after a while and request the server we had before.

“Excellent restaurant”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

My wife and I visited the restaurant several times, always with high expectations and were never disappointed. The quality of the food and service is excellent throughout. At lunch, our favorite by far is the turkey club sandwich (and quite a bargain at $10). The turkey was tender and delicious and the cranberry bread with the sliced apples make a nice compliment to the crispy bacon. Other very good choice was the herbs crusted chicken breast with Caesar salad. Both of those dishes are well above the standard expected in most restaurants. The dinners were somewhat more pricey but the filet mignon "au poivre" and the duck breast were outstanding. Highly recommend this restaurant, in particular for a delicious lunch at a very reasonable price.
