Cafe Bleu Bistro & Wine Bar
Sunday DinnerThe 3-course Sunday evening prix-fixe dinner is a great food buy at $17.95! The soup of the day last Sunday, leek/tomato with an infusion of spicy oil and parmesan cheese, was outstanding. The bread pudding was not the usual preparation of torn bread but was also delicious with the vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce. The steak frites entree was tasty but the steak was a bit chewy. The frites were good as was the asparagus that accompanied it. I will go back again to try another entree. The service was attentive but not overbearing.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat litte neighborhood restaurantMy second visit to this great little place in the Mission Hills.

She loved it and will return again w/friends.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingly pleased at Cafe BleuI chose Cafe Bleu for my 60th birthday celebration for myself, husband son and his girlfriend. I had previously lived in Mission Hills and heard there were some new dining spots. I picked the best. The appetizers were amazing, the wait staff superb. The wait staff was very attentive and I was surprised to have them change the silverware after every course, and clean the table in between. The scallops were succulent, the steak frites excellent, the pork to die for it could not have been better. Then to top it all off the chocolate cake wa amazing and the creme brulee almost as good as my own.
Thank you and we will be back.

It has a warm neighborhood feel as well as welcoming those of us from other "hoods"!! The service is comfortable, friendly and well paced, at the diner's request.

I hope Cafe Bleu continues this warm ambiance, good food and friendly service.

Food and service continue to be outstanding, the tastes they create are just amazing. the only challenge was the noise level, it was very loud, and the sound reverberates... but worth it because of the food and service.3/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat neighborhood find.Wonderful neighborhood gem in mission hills. Service was outstanding. Food was terrific. Onion soup was thick and hearty and just the right taste. We split the pork dish with cranberries and loved every bite. The chocolate dessert was to die for. We savor end every bite. Overall a fantastic fing. It was our first time there. The owner is a delight and takes great pride in hs restaurant, and that was evident in the food and service.2/14/2013 12:00:00 AM8 of us came in for brunch.8 of us came in for brunch. We had a great time. The resto accommodated us in every way from good service, to bottomless mimosas, checking in at appropriate times. The food was very good, lots of clean plates around the table.
The decor is very comfortable and slightly hip, smallish resto with a small bar area. It is probably wonderful at night, because it is charming and intimate in the day!
I can recommend this resto to all. They have a pretty good vegetarian selection as well and are more than willing to accommodate on every level. They want their customers to enjoy their experience. We certainly did!12/29/2012 12:00:00 AM
