    Blue is always great! Heidi's service was exceptional as always! Only real dissapointment was that the Bar area was undergoing renovastions and was closed...:( and they were out of Grey Goose Au Poire!

    I dine at blue grillhouse whenever I visit my daughters, who attend college in the Lehigh Valley. The food, service, and ambiance is consistant and outstanding and the wine list offers good variety. They offer "real" food that never disappoints.

    The dinner music was a bit loud and 80's ish (disco type). We though that the music should be a bit softer... Otherwise, there is not better food for miles. Well done there. Carey Clayman

    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.

    We hadn't been to your restaurant in about a year. It's still beautiful. The wait staff needs some training. For such a nice restaurant, they should be at the top of there game all the time. The guy was nice but it didn't feel like an upscale restaurant.

    Our party of 6 was celebrating my birthday. I thought it was very thoughtful and a pleasant surprise when my dessert arrived and "Happy Birthday" was written on the sides of the plate in icing. What a nice touch!

    One of the best steaks I've had in a long time, the wine list was superb and the ambiance was particularly conducive to the romantic evening I desired. I would recommend this restaurant to any couples who would like to enjoy a great romantic evening out.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 3/15/2008
    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

    We have been to this restaurant on four occasions and have consistently had great food and service everytime.I especially love the ambiance with everything from the music to the landscaping to the very soft intimate lighting and candles.On every occasion, with the exception of one, Jeremy has been our server. 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.

    Dined on 4/1/2006
    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.

    A great steak house, excellent atmosphere. Wine list is extensive. If you're looking for a great steak in the Lehigh Valley - look no further. Their Lobster Bisque is also absolutely delicious. If your craving is for anything else - keep looking. Also - very pricey since everything is a la carte.

    A very nice place to eat, mediocre quality steaks, etc and highway robbery wine prices. Also, very inconsistent. Most overrated Lehigh Valley restaurant there is.
