    Very good salmon. Excellent duck. Terrific desserts. Service was attentive. We were seated promptly. A bit loud. Tables should be a bit larger to accommodate side dishes and plates.

    Fantastic experience.....made reservations on line, noted it was for 30 year anniversary, we were seated immediately upon arrival, wonderful waiter (wished us Happy Anniversary and gave us free champagne and dersert-his name was Pete) food was fantastic, service was wonderful. This was a special anniversary dinner for my sister and brother in law and they had a wonderful time. This was our first time at Blue (even though we have lived in the area for over 30 years), we we definitely be back! Thank you.

    The dining experience at Blue Grillhouse is one of the best in the Lehigh Valley. The wait staff is courteous and on top of everything. My husband and I really enjoyed our dinner. The one thing I didn't like was the table we were given. I asked for another one and the "twit" who brought us said it was reserved. After dining for an hour and a half the three tables around us had no people seated at them. I don't need attitude when I am spending over $ 100 for dinner. But the food and service made up for this.

    Dined on 6/15/2014
    Our reservations at 1:30 on Father's Day allowed us to choose from both the Sunday brunch menu as well as the regular dinner menu. The menus offered a vast array of food that really created a lot of choices for our dining party. The food was very good. We went there knowing at dinner is pretty much a la carte, but it seemed to still be reasonably priced for most of the offerings. We considered sitting on the patio, which has a wonderful ambiance, but it was rather crowded and we didn't want to sacrifice the ability to converse.

    Blue did everything well. The Brunch menu has a lot of variety and everything was well prepared and presented. I especially appreciate that they had 3 servers to ensure that all six meals hit the table at the exact same time. Try the Cool Mary, a Bloody Mary with Organic cucumber infused vodka!

    It was a perfect dinner for my 12th wedding anniversary. We had Dessert ,Drinks & a dinner entree everything was delicious. The wait staff was professional & personable. The chef came out & introduced herself .the atmosphere & ambiance was perfect for a romantic late night dinner with a great balance of low light & energy so you can go out late night & not feel like falling asleep after your full. The food was delicious. We will be going back.

    Blue is an upscale restaurant with beautiful decor and a great outdoor patio. The food is very good but pricey and everything is a la carte including sides. Wines by the glass could use some updating with higher end options being made available. Wine pours are not generous given the quality and the price charged per glass.

    This dining experience that we had on Friday June 12, 2014 was probably the best I've ever had at any restaurant. My wife and I celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary, and I'm glad I chose Blue Grillhouse. From the time we stepped in the door till we left we were treated with grace, smiles, happy anniversary greetings, etc... Our waiter Jeremy, was terrific. My hat goes off to him. Plus all others that I don't know their names, thank you for a wonderful evening that we will always remember. Ken and Terri Ruch

    We had a larger group with kids. It was fantastic! The kids were able to color and eat their chicken fingers and fries while we had delicious appetizers (highly recommend the calamari). The entrees were perfect. Everyone had either the steaks or the seafood. Our waitress was the sweetest and the bartender made fantastic mojitos. The perfect way to ring in summer!

    Ate at Blue for my sister's pre-graduation dinner and it was perfect from start to finish. We had a table set to the side of the main dining room and our service team tended to our every need. The special dry-aged strip steak was cooked perfectly and all the sides were very tasty. One note, the steaks will usually come a little on the rare side of the temperature you requested, which was perfect for me, but may not be for others. Our waiter explained all of this in depth to our party and adjusted accordingly, which was very professional. Always a great place for a special occasion!

    Awesome dining experience for a special occasion... 4 of us were celebrating a friend's 50th birthday. What we like the most was the ambiance, the food and the attentive service which was not intrusive but always there when you needed them. The food and drinks were a delight. The Blue Grillhouse is a beautiful elegant restaurant, inside and out, a good reason to dress up for a night out. While pricey, it was well worth it for the experience to the senses.

    We are new to the area and have been looking for some upscale dining. On the suggest of a friend, we selected the Blue Grillhouse for our anniversary dinner. Good food, great service, nice atmosphere. Had indicated on the Open Table reservation that this was an anniversary celebration - waiter and manager acknowledged our celebration which was a nice touch - plus a glass of champagne and dessert. Overall a great experience, especially the service - professional, good presentation, and excellent timing.

    We went to Blue for my wife's birthday. I was business casual, but instead of being placed in the cozy, intimate section we were in the diner-like add on section. Our reservations stated it was a birthday visit. Furthermore, while my wife ordered the exact meal found on the price fixe menu, we were charged $50 more because our waiter failed to mention the fact. We paid $200 for a meal that would have cost $175 at Shula's with 3 drinks and Crème-Brule and equal food quality. We will no be back.

    My wife & I took her Mom & Dad out for Mother's Day. We had an excellent time. The food was superb and the services was great. I had the Sea Bass special. I would highly recommend this if they have it on the menu. Everyone else had a steak of some kind and were extremely happy with them. The price was a bit pricy, but compared to other places in the area it’s not that bad.

    We had a wonderful mother's day dinner here and Blue remains one of the top spots in the Lehigh Valley. The service is always spot on and attentive without being overbearing. Our server was good fun to talk with and kept the coffee and drinks flowing. The food is excellent as always and the steaks were perfectly cooked with the Hula Pie dessert a favorite of the table. Well worth the trip.

    As a first time diner at your establishment, my guests and I were impressed with the décor and ambience. Used to fine dining at least once a month In Manhattan, I found your restaurant also quite impressive. The prices were very reasonable. Our only disappointment was the raw oysters, which to say the least were miniscule. Accustomed to paying $3 to $3.50 per oyster, your price was not the problem. Since dinner there this week, I've told friends about your Prix Fixe menu which is extremely affordable. I got the impression some of them were afraid to try Blue because they had heard it was outrageously expensive. I tried to correct that image, at least from my point of view. Our server Jennifer was friendly but professional.
