Blue On Highland
not just a neighborhood placeWe had a group of six at a round table which was perfect for conversation. Because the tables are not on top of one another, the quiet atmosphere lowered the stress level. Each main course was outstanding- delicate sauces not overwhelmed by too much spice or butter, as is the case with many establishments lately. They were even better than the descriptions in the menu. Dessert- creme brule was excellent, as was the apple (?). Entrees were large enough to share. Service was professional and not intrusive.
Blue on HIghland should be considered a destination restaurant.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMService was excellant, hardService was excellant, hard to find service at this level anymore.
Food was fantastic - Seafood linguine was spectacular and the Chicken picatta was outstanding. Food was out of the kitchen very quickly and very hot.
Dessret was Chocalate bread pudding with salted caramel ice cream that was just amazing.
we will be back and will recommend to all our friends.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMA rare treat in the 'burbsI love to eat out. I owned restaurants in another lifetime so I love to truly enjoy every aspect of dining out (even with a 3 and 6 year old). But way to often my high enthusiasm winds up getting pummeled under bad and/or insincere service and food that is less inspired and even less consistent than I ever dared imagined possible.
HOWEVER, that was all turned around the other night when I had the pleasure of dining at Blue on Highland. Sadly, I was expecting more of the same mediocrity, but what I found was that rare gem of a place that I will look forward to going back time and again.
The service, atmosphere, and food and beverages were fantastic. I mean, really, really, really good both in selection and quality.
Go Blue!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMNew favorite!We were looking for a great non greasy spoon type Brunch, and loved the idea of having live jazz to listen to. Upscale, classy
And modern inside. Everything we had was delicious. Good sized portions, Presented beautifully, great service. Coffee is great- I generally first judge a restaurant on their coffee.
I can't wait to return for dinner. Their brunch was fantastic so I can imagine that their dinner is too! Highly recommend.
We had eggs Benedict and challah French toast with strawberries. I usually could care less about French toast but theirs was delicious, fluffy and perfect.
Definitely my new favorite place! Be sure to park in the back lot (free).5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time!!!This was our first time here. We heard good things from a coworker of mine. Start to finish it was top notch. The only draw back was that we had a reservation and the hostess sat us by the door/service computer/hostess stand where we could hear everything going on with staff. Yet 2 ppl walked in the door in front of us with no reservation and got a nice booth away from all the chit chat going on.
So on that note, we maybe back have not really talked about it yet.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dinner and service.Great dinner and service. Thanks for the great night.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGood time and great service!Our server, Yulia, was outstanding, as well as very understanding that our group of four, who hadn't seen each other for a long time, lingered a bit too long at the table. I appreciated her good service and nice personality.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a very nice visit to Blue.Had a very nice visit to Blue. Server was excellent and the food was delicious. We all chuckled at the huge ice tea glasses: they're old fashioned jars with 24 ounces of tea to the brim!4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMJazz brunch was wonderful...food,coJazz brunch was wonderful...food,cocktails and band!4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good food and ambianceVery popular local establishment that is unassuming on the outside but has great space and atmosphere on the inside. We were there on a Friday night and there was a very vibrant bar scene. The bar is next to the restaurant and the energy flowed into the restaurant in a good way.
Food was excellent. Better than expected and I expected it to be good. Server was very friendly and service was good. We will definitely come back again.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place. Nice decoration. AGreat place. Nice decoration.
A little too loud.
We had to speak loudly to hear the conversation in our table of 4.
Drinks were good.
Best Pomegranate Martini. Will go back for that.
Food was hit or miss. Some great some ok.
Short ribs were very soft, and tasted very good but needed more sauce to mix with the pasta.
Steak and fries: Steak was good but fries were too dark almost burned.
Duck was not a hit. Could be better.
We have been there before a couple of times. We will go back.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and friendly service.Great food and friendly service.

None of us had been there before, and what a wonderful surprise! The ambience was lovely, the service excellent, the food delicious. Our reservation was for 6:30. We were seated immediately. Our waitress, Marshiella (I hope she forgives me for misspelling), was perfection. Our dinner was leisurely, we had plenty of time to talk and enjoy the food between courses, and although the restaurant was quite busy, at no time did she make us feel rushed. We ordered the Baked Brie as our appetizer, and the mixture of flavors was spectacular. I ordered the Blue Cheese Panko Encrusted Sirloin. Heaven on a plate. Everything was delightful. Highly recommended.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful!Had such a lovely dinner here the other night with my family. Everything we had was fantastic! The baked brie appetizer was to die for. SO GOOD. I had the fish special and it was so delicious I think they should have it on the menu all the time. The service there is really special, they are so willing to do anything you need. I love this restaurant and I cannot wait to go back!!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMwe went for a 6:15 resevationwe went for a 6:15 resevation and it was nice and quiet and had a great table and great meal!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMA great place for that nicerA great place for that nicer lunch meeting or your everyday lunch plans.
