I've been to Blue a few times before but this was the first time at the new patio bar. The ambiance is well worth it if its a quiet night and they are not too busy so you can sit and relax or if you want to be ignored. We went on a crowded Wednesday night. My friend and I went and sat at a table in the corner. THere were 3 large parties (6 to 8 people each) and another 4 seater. We watched as at least 3 waiters and the hostess catered to the larger parties as well as glancing at us but never coming over to us. Finally after 10 minutes my friend went to the bar to get us our drinks and ask for a waiter to come and take an order. Luckily we only wanted an appetizer because I'm not sure how long it would have taken if we needed to have menus brought to us. When the waiter arrived and we told him we got our own drinks he responded something like "Good Im OK when you put me ahead of the game". Nice service. We ordered a spinach/artichoke flat bread. It was Good if you like parmesean cheese because that was really all you could taste. Very little spinach or artichoke flavor. The waiter came by once more after we were finished with the appetizer to see if we were OK but left as my friend was in mid sentence talking to him. Once we realized we weren't getting any more service out of him I flagged down the hostess to get us our check. A little over $27 for 2 glasses of wine, the appetizer and really bad service. Not sure I'll go again any time soon.
