Comfort Food with an Elegant twist
Delicious comfort food. I don't normally order chicken but was taken in by the roast chicken with a Meyer lemon sauce. It was served with mashed potatoes and sauteed spinach-yum. The server was very knowledgeable about the menu and was very helpful in steering us to menu items based on our preferences. I wouldn't say it was a "kid" restaurant, but definitely somewhere you can take kids who are used to eating out. The restaurant did offer kid-friendly menu options when asked. After a full day on the mountain, it was a perfect restaurant for a nice meal with a casual, relaxing, candle-lit atmosphere. We will be back.

Several large & loud groups detracted from the evening's enjoyment.

A great choice!
Visited from out of town and chose to dine here at the last minute. I was not disappointed! I had a great glass of wine. Really enjoyed the Blue Salad and my entree was to die for. But, the best part of my dining experience was my waiter, Alex. He was outstanding! Very attentive, personalable and made great recommendations. I am hoping to get back for another dining experience before I leave town!

The name "Blue Plate" reminds
The name "Blue Plate" reminds most Americans of the Blue Plate Diner name. A Diner is a low-cost take-out type restaurant. The food
is not "Diner or Blue Plate" like at all. The name doesn't fit the Austrian/American entrees. The ambiance reminds me of something out
of the 1960's. Again, doesn't fit the menu. The Filet, Bread and TriVento wine were delicious. The schnitzel was good with Ligonberry sauce but would be a better dinner entree with Spatzle and vegetables. The chopped ice berg lettuce could be served with a lunch not with a dinner entree. I think the name of the restaurant, decor, menu and the food should take on a more Austrian feel. Food was very good to excellent. The ambiance disconnected. Service was also excellent.

Best Kept Secret in the Valley!
We love this place! The move last year to the new location has been a great thing! The owners (chef/hostess with the mostest) run a a great venue. On our recent visit to the Valley we dined there twice...once outdoors (almost more than I could stand not to pick the fresh tomatoes in the planter boxes) and the other indoors. The fresh bread is wonderful ....the tempura artichokes a must...from a party of 6 all were thrilled with their choices....the steaks are excellent , the schnitzel cooked perfectly, roasted chicken good, choices for the kids great! Not Spagos but a great restaurant for very good food and service!!! Try it you won't be disappointed! Good wine list and good cocktails!!!!!

Blue Plate is Wonderful!
We frequent the Blue Plate, first going there when it was in Christy's Lodge. The Meat Loaf is a favorite. Wine selection is incredible. Service was slow this time as a rain storm had them slammed when everyone arrived at once. But with good friends that was not a problem. The frog legs were bland without the excellent sauce.

What took us so long...
to try Blue Plate? Maybe the name was not 'hip' enough. Glad we got past that! The service was friendly, professional & prompt. The food was wonderful. There is a wonderful patio to use in good weather.
