The atmosphere as soon as you walked in was wonderful. Got seated immediately. Went there for anniversary lunch. A nice complimentary glass of champagne was brought to our table, which was a nice touch. Everything from the flatbread for appetizer to grilled chicken and mini tenderloin sandwiches. Nice size servings, even for lunch. Brought most of the food home. A complimentary dessert of Creme Brule was served as well. A nice visit to a very chic restaurant for a romantic lunch. Would definitely go back.

Didnt leave me Blue
The decor is very soothing without being boring. Service was top notch. The wine list is extensive and the menu has something for everyone. My grass-fed steak was tender and flavorful. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. Its not inexpensive but its worth the extra cost for a guaranteed great meal.

We loved the food and the martini menu was awesome! We had been to Blue before, but our friends, whom are foodies, were extremely pleased Blue! The prime rib was tender and cooked perfectly, as was the hangar steak! The scallops were just as tasty! We highly recommend this restaurant!

This is the first time I've been to Blue since the renovation. Not only is it much nicer inside, the best improvement is the staff. Our service was wonderful and everyone was pleasant to deal with. Food was excellent as always. Our waiter was exceptional. Great job, Blue. I'll be back.

My husband and I went to Blue for a romantic evening. When we arrived, the hostess informed us that outside seating is first-come, first-served, thus rendering our reservation ineffective. Fortunately, we found outside seating within 15 minutes of waiting at the bar.
A nice experience, but pricey.
8/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Beautiful place, amazing food excellent service.
Would love to go back to it
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
I love Blue, but the restaurant was freezing cold---and we all had sweaters on. It was almost too cold to enjoy the dinner.
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were treated to champagne and dessert for our anniversary. It was wonderful. The entire meal was delicious and the service was great. We will definitely return!

I had a very good time. The food and service was excellent. Great place for fine dining

Went to Blue with a few gf's to celebrate a birthday. Atmosphere outside was nice, server was very accomodating and friendly, and the food was excellent (Great for brunch). The dessert menu just for brunch/lunch looked awesome. Walnut blondie was probably the best I ever had and the enormous piece of Hula cake they brought out for the birthday girl was awesome as well. It's a really restaurant and definitely recommend for a special occassion, as it's a little more upscale.

Was originally given a very poor located seating. 2nd time this has happened (with a reservation). They may want to eliminate these tables (just to the left as enter into the formal Dining area). However, when it was requested to move our location, they immediate obliged. Very good waiter and service. Food and wine is very good. Fresh Oyster and steaks are excellent. Desert was excellent. Yes, they have expresso. :)

Blue was such a nice place to dine! Great food, service, and environment! Would recommend to anyone. Will definitely com back!
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
very good brunch
4 of us had a very good Sunday brunch at Blue. We ate inside, since it was very hot and muggy, but the covered outdoor patio looked lovely. The service was excellent, and the food choices were above the standard brunch offerings. My salmon hash eggs benedict was terrific. When we were full to bursting, they brought a HUGE piece of their signature ice cream pie, which was on the house after they overheard us toasting someone in our party's birthday. Will definitely go back.
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
What. Great place !! It just as good or better then the top places in Philly
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
I wanted to do a more upscale dinner dining for my birthday instead of the usual club thing. And thus place was great. Fast service and polite. The food and drinks were perfect. Great location convenient and cute.

Great food , great service
The service is always wonderful with very attentive but not overbearing servers.
Food portions are very ample and items can be shared. Baked potatoes are huge and delicious with all the fixins .
Steaks are prepared as requested and are flavorful.
Only disappointment , I rarely get to dessert since the meal is delicious .

Close, but no cigar...
My wife and I chose this for our 25th anniversary, based on previous experience. We have visited some of the best steak houses over the years. I also have a reputation for making GREAT steaks at home. Overall the experience at Blue was lovely and all the food was terrific, with the exception being the steaks...their purported specialty.The cuts were fine and prepared as ordered, mine a rib-eye medium-rare, and hers a filet butterflied and medium. What was sorely lacking was flavor. We didn't add any sauces (Maybe that's what's needed), as we like well prepared, seasoned grilled beef. No seasoning whatsoever..really, no flavor. The rest of the experience was great - with complimentary champagne and dessert. Not sure we'll return. Sad...
9/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great time and great food!
While we made reservations, outside seating is first come first serve. We chose to sit outside, it did rain heavily but at our table we did not get wet, we were offered the option to move to any table if necessary inside or outside. We were given complementary glasses of champaigne because we told them it was our anniversary. We ordered the mozzerella and tomato flatbread and it was delicious! They had a prix-fixe meal special insert which i took advantage of and got the garden salad, catch of the day and chocolate cake with peanut butter icing. My husband couldn't resist the lobster ravioli (which is an appitizer) We both ate everything leaving no leftovers! Service was good and definately recommend Blue for your special occasion!

This was our forth visit and every one was memorable.
Besides the food, the service was great. We asked for a drink that was not on the menu (it had been on your menu before)
and it came just as my wife remembered it.
We will be back often.

Fun Friday Date Night
Blue's bar scene...indoors and outside...are both fun and energetic. They have a nice selection of happyy hour drinks and appetizers that'll keep you happy until 7pm. Afterwards, the restaurant area boasts a perfectly romantic setting for a special date. The waiters and bartenders are all attentive and excellent at their jobs.

I messed up the reservation
I messed up the reservation and entered the wrong date on my OpenTable request. When we arrived, the hostess was very understanding and got us a table right away. Our server was very helpful with our menu choices. The food was excellent.

Nice place to dine
Went there on a date, and it was perfect. The service was nice, she was not knowledgeable about the menu but was very polite and friendly. It was very quiet, it was a Sunday not many people there. It is not a very expensive restaurant and it was very elegant. I would recommend it.
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Seated promptly upon arrival. Food prepared to perfection. Our waitress was perfect. Food was served in a timely manner
without being rushed. Staff was very friendly. An all around excellent dining experience.

Went for our anniversary. Wonderful setting, awesome staff and food was cooked to perfection. We ordered Filet and an order of scallops. Both tasted perfect.

Great food and atmosphere!
Enjoyed a cocktail at the outside bar during happy hour. There was about 4 or 5 drinks for only $6. Great food for dinner! The sides are medium to large portions so 1 is enough for at least 2 people. Great service! They do not sing happy birthday which I enjoyed :)
10/14/2013 12:00:00 AM

We sat outside to enjoy the outdoor fireplace and everyone's meal was outstanding. Great wine selection as well and our service was excellent.

25th Anniversary for Jeff's work
We had a great dinner. The staff couldn't have been friendlier. The food was even better than our expectations. The cost is high, but for special occasions it is well worth it. It's nice to be pampered.

Excellent Food and Service
We made reservation for Brunch while visiting our son at Lehigh and we were happily surprise about the food and service. The food was well made and delicious. Our waitress, Hannah, was great. We will definitely come back next time we are visiting our son.

Blue Grill is quite divine
My friend and I both had seafood in different dishes and both were quite good. Their drinks are very well prepared and presented and the service is amazing. It is a must experience.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our daughter referred us- she works nearby- and it was a pleasure. Our wait person was Pat and she was friendly, warm, personable and very prompt as well as those who also served us. delicious and we enjoyed the atmosphere. All around a great choice and evening.

The service and attention from the staff was remarkable and made for a great dining experience. They were helpful, sociable and patient as well as being attentive to our needs. The food was heavenly, the wine exceptional and the ambiance was delightful. It was perfect for our first anniversary celebration. I look forward to returning.

Loved the Oysters
Took my wife last week for our date night. The food was outstanding, especially the oysters which were fresh and presented as perfectly as can be done. A real treat. Waiter was outstanding with courteous service and a thorough understanding of the menu. Told him we wanted to take our time and he got everything just right. Had not been there for awhile and will definitely go back soon.

Food were very fresh from appetizers to deserts. Our main entrees for our table of 4 were cooked to perfection and the service received was excellent. Since we ordered many appetizers including salads, our entrees arrived after we finished and the temperature of the food was hot . Only one small disappointment, my son and I wanted to order the Chilean Sea Bass however that was sold out for the evening. Otherwise, we had a very enjoyable meal and would recommend this restaurant to any foodies like ourselves.

As always, our dining experience
As always, our dining experience at The Blue was fantastic. The food and our waiter could not have been better.

Wonderful experience :)
My fiance and I went to dinner at blue for a special celebration. We started with a cocktail by the fireplace in the bar. Not only did a server wait on us, but another staff member also stopped by to make sure we were taken care of. We continued with dinner in the dining room, and everything from appetizer through dessert was phenomenal. We had such a wonderful experience, and would definitely recommend blue to anyone looking for a delicious dinner with a romantic ambience. We'd also definitely recommend the tuna tartar. It was delicious!! We will definitely be going back :)

True BLUE Fan
The Blue has a very hip and uptick ambiance about it, which is one of the things that brings me back. They recently completed a renovation on an outside patio and bar area with a large glass-enclosed gas fire place in the center of the patio, a large bar, televisions etc. It integrates beautifully into the inside bar and existing layout, without feeling "grafted on". Despite the mid-November date, there were about 20 people dining outside, so it must be comfortable. We ate inside in the main dining room, which has the feel of all the good steak houses - lots of dark wood and atmospheric lighting. My filet was flavorful; the Caesar salad fresh and tasty. One of the largest baked potatoes this side of Morton's, with all the trimmings.

Great Restaurant in the Allentown A
Been here many, many times and will continue to return. Steak's are always done to perfection (they pride themselves on this) and everything else on the menu is always "spot on". A must if you have never tried.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Dry Aged Beef!
New on the menu is a rotating selection of dry aged beef. Steak lovers will flip for the flavor and texture. I had the 24oz Porterhouse, medium. It arrived perfectly cooked and absolutely delicious. A bit pricey ($55) and was offered only by the server as she ran through the specials. Well worth it for a great meal.
11/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was my first time here and its was great. I was very satisfied with the food and service. Also we were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary and the staff and management made us feel very special. We are looking forward to coming bask soon.

Fantastic food. Blue is a bit on the pricey side but it's definitely worth it, in my opinion. The steaks are cooked to perfection and the service is wonderful.

Steak House Experience
Date night to State Theatre in Easton. Very impressed. Saturday night prime rib was delicious. Braised short ribs were very moist and tender. The baby carrots that garnished my plate were perfect and the pearl onions were delicious. The grilled asparagus was prepared perfectly with grill taste but not being charred. Somehow we topped the meal off with a macadamia nut dessert for two (or four). Our waitress Jennifer was attentive and friendly and we never felt like we were being rushed out. Worth the dollars spent. We did enjoy a bottle of wine as well and it was the perfect temperature and they were attentive to refilling as we enjoyed our dining experience. Nice when ambiance, flavor and service are found outside "city limits."
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food was incredible, every bite simply perfect. The ambiance is peaceful and the staff are so attentive. I will come again and again.

great steak and wine
Went on a Friday night to celebrate an anniversary, not crowded. The fireplace was a nice touch that made the ambiance that much better and kept the chill out of the room. Our server was nice, friendly and personable. We started out with a bottle of Chianti recommended by our server. It was a delicious choice. We had the pumpkin ravioli special. It was to die for, I wished there was more. We ordered the 8oz and 10oz filet mignon; it was cooked perfectly. Our sides were lacking. The spinach with garlic was way too salty. The mashed potatoes were a little bland which is fine because I can always add pepper or salt or in our case the side of butter and herbs to it. Our favorite sauce was the béarnaise. We like the horseradish sauce too.
