    We had a totally enjoyable evening. Our service was terrific....our waitress was wonderful. My sister and I tried strawberry bellinis for the first time and they were outstanding. While we found the portion size of the sides and appetizers reasonable, we did feel the main course could have been more ample for the price paid. But everything was very good, and I want to emphasize again how great our waitress was. Blue remains one of our (my sister and husbands) favorite restaurants in the Lehigh Valley.

    Hostess was grumpy and seemed put out when our party of five arrived. Waitress took 10 minutes to get over to our table. Whenour appetizers were served--we realized, we had no set ups, no knives, no forks, no spoons. Took awhile to get anyone's attention to even get the set ups. My salmon was so overcooked it had absolutely no flavor. Sauce was good. the Godiva chocolate dessert was sensational. A very pretty room. A great wine selection. But food and service were just so so, at best. I will never return.

    Everything was wonderful except the wait staff started clearing the table before EVERYONE at the table was done eating. We found this very rude and it made the persons still eating uncomfortable. Attention must be paid to the "SOCIAL" graces and etiquette in making the entire dining experience wonderful.

    The wine list is impressive but also overpriced. The food was good but not exceptional. Presentation of the food left something to be desired also. Although we had a good dinner (very good service)I would not hurry back. Not the best steak house type restaurant I've been to. Even though it was a Monday evening, the noise coming from the bar into the dining room was loud. Maybe can be closed off better somehow???

    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 4/28/2008
    Everything was perfect at the restaurant. I was suprised that when I booked the reservation on-line, that a 7pm slot for 5 people did not appear available and I had to select either 6:30pm or 7:30pm. The reservation was for a Monday night which I assumed would be a slow night. The on-line booking system led me to believe that maybe the restaurant was busy at 7pm and that's why I could not get my preferred time of 7pm. So, I made adjustments to my schedule for that evening and my party of five arrived at 6:30pm to find the restaurant "empty". I think there were two other tables occuppied. So, we were all wondering why I could not get a table at 7:00pm. Strange. Thought you should know.

    Love the NY steakhouse atmosphere. Warm and inviting. All ordered steak and they were done perfectly, quality meats, tender and flavorful. One person thought there was too much salt used on the meat. Wine list good, not great (I worked in the wien busienss in NY). Overall prices too high, had to search hard to find value. Small print of the list, in dim lighting, very hard to read. Muzac played throughout the meal distacting... part loudness and part selection.

    Another overly rated overly priced "Steakhouse". The food was average. The filet was over cooked had asked for medium it was more like med-well but closer to well done plus too charred on the outside however it was tender and somewhat tasty. Tried all three sauces on the side and they were not complimentary with the steak. The 5 dollar baked potato was dry and boring. The appetizer was good but we could not eat it until we had to ask for plates and also had to ask for bread. One of the water glasses was dirty. The waiter did not pour our Martinis neatly and also tried to take them away before finished. Dessert was good and reasonably priced. Felt that the table was too small, the music an odd choice for the "romantic ambience" and too dark.

    This is one of the best restaurants that I have ever been too. The service is excellent. Your cup will never go empty. The servers are very FRIENDLY. It's the best service I have ever had. The food is excellent; their wine list is great they have over 100 wines. This is the place you take some one for a special occasion or if you want to impress some one. The restaurant, the service, the wine, the food is something that you will not forget in fact it’s a rare treat. It’s so amazing that I made reservations again.

    This is truly an excellent restaurant and very possibly the best (in every respect) in the Lehigh Valley. The one drawback (and a significant one) is the price. It is outrageously expensive and I really resent paying Manhattan prices in the Lehigh Valley. I would be a frequent customer if the prices were a little more reasonable.

    The service was excellent, except for the bus-person wanting to clean-up dishes we were not finished with. The food was memorable, except for the oven-roasted potatoes. They were dry. The prices were too high (even for how spectacular the food was). The menu did not explain that the a la carte sides were really sized for two people. We were willing to pay the high price for the multiple sides; but then it was wasteful because of their size and the oven roasted potatoes were extremely dry. Overall, we had a great time; but were glad to have had a generous gift card to bite into the pricey menu a bit. It is hard in these times to afford such dining. I would say the experience is a must try, for the main dishes and wine list al

He is an excellent server with a very professional and courteous manner.He has made menu suggestions that have enhanced our dining experience and always keeps us informed of what's coming next and what desserts need extra time to prepare.I enjoyed a drink called Hypnotiq.Our favorites are the lobster bisque and the way it's served at the table is unique , crab cakes and the chocolate godiva.Congratulations to the chef and staff.

    I am writing this review significantly after eating at Blue. I went on a weekend night for a romantic occasion. The table was set beautifully, and the ambiance was perfect. We had a New England Clam Chowder, Lobster Bisque, Surf 'n Turf, and a Chicken dish. All was excellent, except my lobster was bad. It wasn't that it was improperly cooked, but the meat itself was awful tasting. I notified my waiter and he had the manager come over. The manager said that she doubted very much that the lobster was bad, which I was surprised to hear her say and something I tool offense to. I was given a complementary dessert. Besides the one mishap, overall the experience was worth it and I would recommend this restaurant.
