A word from Bleu Martini
It's name may be icy cool, but you can't get any hotter than Bleu Martini. Although located in Olde City, there is nothing "old" about it. The ambience is a cool cove of blue hues & delicious drinks. The bar & the booth-laden dining area are swathed in azure-themed décor, and the musical fare ranges from floor-thumping house to trendy hip-hop, making Bleu Martini the perfect hotspot for a young-at-heart crowd that wants to party while it dines in style. The food is top-notch classic, with full seafood & meat selections & a host of tasty appetizers. But the drinks are perhaps the greatest draw. Skip dessert altogether & replace it with another drink instead. Specifically, try the Milkshake Martini, which is as tasty as it sounds. The popular Flirtini uses Champagne to get your romantic juices going: pure liquor bliss.

    The food was pretty good. The service was pretty bad though. It wasn't until I got my check that I realized why, gratuity automatically included. Nice drinks though

    Beautiful elegant atmosphere. Food was mediocre. Drinks were good. Service was lacking. Waitress was not attentive and forgetful of several requests. We see why gratuity was automatically added to the bill because the service was not satisfactory and the amount required was not earned. Customer service is a major factor in dinning experiences.

    Tried Bleu during restaurant week. Ate early, but still, the place was empty, which makes you wonder. Food and service were fair. But would wager potatoes were instant, or were beat into starchy, pasty submission. Steak was well prepared though. Martini options were mainly sugar-loaded. Cheesecake dessert was your average buy-from-big-box-store variety. To me, restaurant week is all about trying to present a 'wow' at some point to make the diner feel they really want to come back. Bleu Martini was ok, but didn't stand out given all the terrific options in the neighborhood.

    Great place for drinks with the girls or romance. Food was a pleasant surprise. Shrimp was succulent. Sea bass excellent. Only down side...no place for a child to sit .....even if you come early. Another downer there is that they say gratuity is added at 18% for anything over $20. The martinis are $10 each minimum. I have not had a bad experience so at this point I have nothing to complain about but I would submit that you would be hard-pressed to get me to pay 18% if I did not like the service so from that standpoint I'm concerned if I want to go back. The girl I had that day was excellent ....absolutely loved her.... but it doesn't mean she'll always be there. I think that's up to me to add gratuity based on services rendered.

    We had a party of 8 go around 8:30 on a Friday night. The food was very good and the atmosphere was laid back at that time - disappointed in our server since there was very little crowd. We went back later that night and the place practically turned into a club. Hard to move around and get a drink but good vibes.

    I loved the Bleu Martini! My best friend and myself were in town for On the Run Tour featuring Beyonce' and Jay-Z, and found this hidden gem. The food was great! The sushi could use a little help. The drinks were excellent! I love the whole restaurant/ nightclub feel. And our waitress was really sweet and warming.

    I went here Friday night. I am a member of the Dining Out Club so this spot worked for our later plans. The place is small but cute. The martinis are small but not bad. Food was good, not great, but nothing to complain about...until the end... My girl added a vegetable to her meal which should have been $5. Waitress added $50. Then, although I presented the Dining Out card which clearly says 25% off, they only applied 20%. Needless to say it took a while to get the correct bill. But we did & since they already add 18% gratuity, we both agreed that was enough. I check my account to see that they took it upon themselves to add an additional $6 tip! With all the hassle we had at the end, not sure I will be back! SN: Check your Credit Cards!

    I thoroughly enjoyed the culinary talents from the kitchen here! Noise level was a bit annoying but we were next to a large group that was partying loudly. Be aware that gratuity is added to your bill here for even just a party of two! I accidentally tipped our waitress an additional $35. on top of the 18% Not realizing this but I didn't mind since she was Extremely pleasant and efficient :) Def give this food a try tho!!!

    I took my friend to this restaurant because of her birthday and it was so great. The ambience was great i did love the music the food etc. the service was excellent . We had a reservation at 8pm and we were eating in 20 minutes. Very fast and very tasty. It was more a club rest. Than a quite rest. So if you are looking for something more discrete this is not the right place for you. But if you are on a club /fun/ music mood this is the perfect place for you. Nice security too.

    My friend had mentioned to eat here as I was searching the internet for restaurants in Philly to go to for a Valentine's Night Out with the girlfriends. We looked at the pictures on your website and I really liked the vibe I was getting from the atmosphere at night. My party kept growing and luckily I was able to change the reservations online and then of course "girls will be girls" half of them did not come but the waitress did not mind at all. She was bubbly and extremely helpful. She never made us wait to order and her energy was great. My one friend spilled her drink and she gave her knew a one free of charge.

I mean our server was very polite, but she came back an forth to our table in 30 minute increments, so that made hubby impatient an ready to go. Overall, I still had a good time.

    Friday, February 14 around 6 pm four of us made a last minute decision to go out for dinner. Luckily, Bleu Martini was around the corner and had a spot for us at 6:15. Boy, we were lucky. We started with Edamame - steamed soy beans with sesame oil, soy sauce, sesame seeds and sea salt. Delicious. For entrees we had grilled filet mignon, a Bleu burger, and crab cakes - all excellent. Next time we'll have to try the martinis

    I would NOT recommend eating at Bleu Martini. The food was average, but the environment was a club scene. The music was LOUD. The waitresses were wearing spandex and belly shirts - not what I'm looking for when I'm ordering a meal. This place should stick to what it knows, martinis and house music.

    My experience was okay. I decided on this spot for restaurant week but wish I choose another spot. Although my experience was not horrible its more suited for a after work drinking spot. As soon as we came in the door you were in the section to eat. It was only about 10 tables in the middle and bars on either side but one was for vip. The drinks were all $10 martinis and they were small. At one point the waittess had to take our shakers because the bar ran out so I didn't even get the last little bit of my expensive drink. My waitress was very nice so it made the experince better.

    My sister-n-law and I arrived there at 9:04, we didn't get our First Course till 10:00! I ordered the Caesar salad, and she had the calamari. We were starved when we got there, that appetizer went Fast! So we're waiting and it's getting later and later as we're about to walk out; the waitress offers Free drinks and apologizes for the very long Inconvenient Wait. By the time we received our food it was 10:45, so we ate and took our desserts to go. The food was good, would I go again? ... possibly. Maybe it took soo long because it was restaurant week, I would go to c it on a normal day.

    I went to this restaurant with my luv during restaurant week. I can't say that this was a great experience at all. We waited for a table that I RSVP prior for longer than we should have. The waiter wanted to sit us in a table but I explained I requested a booth so she had to get her supervisors approval and that was no problem. We waited over an hour and a half for our first course salad and calamarie.The next course didnt come out for another hour. Ridiculous wait. I am very disappointed

    I went to Bleu Martini for restaurant week after seeing what looked like a delicious menu option. Went around 7 on a Friday night with a friend and the crowd was light which was perfect as we just beat the Friday rush, it was more crowded when we left. The vegetable spring rolls came fresh out of the oven hot and the dipping sauce was awesome. I ordered the cajun salmon which was amazing, I didn't want the meal to end, the potatoes and peppers were also on point. The cherry cheesecake was a great ending. It was a great restaurant with great food and a great staff. Will definitely recommend to friends and return to the Bleu Martini

    Went for restuarant week. Waiters were friendly- small mishaps: broke a glass, forgot to split checks when asked, forgot water. Otherwise, the ambience was great. The food was good. I got the Cajun salmon, the only downfall was that the flavor didn't have much Cajun taste to it. Still great salmon. We got seated right away on a Sunday evening. Would return.
