    Went for a dinner with friends, picked for location because it was about halfway for friends coming in from different areas. The bar was so nice, had great drinks while waiting for one to show up. Service was fabulous from everyone there. The food was so incredible, can't wait to go again. The outdoor seating area looked like it would be great in warmer months. It was a great night!

    The food was great and the wait staff was friendly and attentive. However, it took at least 45 minutes from the time we placed our orders until we received out entrees. I suspect the long wait was a result of their Easter Brunch that was being held at the time. However, I might not go back if the wait is long on my second visit.

    This dining experience is not to be missed. The decor is amazing and the staff was very helpful. We had excellent food and the wine list is remarkable. The waitress suggested a bottle from Hundred Acre Vineyards that was very good. We even booked a large group party for our 2014 Club Holiday Party this year. After dinner we went outside on the covered patio for a glass of wine. They have overhead heaters and a great central gas fireplace surrounded in glass. Overall this was an excellent dining experience. We will return.

    Dined on 4/10/2014
    Our waiter was unattentive. Main course was brought to the table without the vegetables etc. After about 8 top 10 minutes I had to find another waiter for assistance. Although my premium steak was grossly overcooked, the manager cordially ordered another , which was perfect.. The Mgr. said that because of the inconvenince, my steal was free. However I didn't want a free meal , just the correct one. when I paid the bill, I included a very hefty tip to try compensating for the complmentary steak ( Over %40) . The waiter never came back with a mere thanks , so if I return to Blue I will not accept that same waiter. Dennis V.O.

    The overall dining experience was excellent the place, is very nice in and out, our waitress was excellent and very helpful, now the food on the other hand, was alot to be desired its served 'ala cart' style so it's basically just a steak and you pay extra for all sides, my steak was 40 dollars for a 6oz filet at that price I expected it to be amazing!! It wasn't cooked the way I asked and it was VERY salty, I didn't eat any of it and I don't ever send food back to the kitchen...overall it's above place and was perfect for our anniversary but too expensive and not worth the price.

    Though the restaurant is very lovely and the feeling therein very conducive to a romantic night out, the food was really quite terrible for the disproportionately high prices. I feel somewhat cheated when I know that I could have fried a filet of fish and roasted some potatoes at home that would've tasted better, been a larger portion and would have cost 1/10th of what I paid at Blue.

    Dinner at Blue is always a wonderful experience. It is a steak lover's paradise and usually features outstanding sea food entrees as well. Blue is a special occasion place and very suitable for business dinners. The service is top notch and the quality of the food is extraordinary. Escew the steak chains and give Blue a whirl. You'll not be disappointed.

    Basically a steak house with a decent seafood menu, but there are closer restaurants to Coopersburg that are as good or better for the money. Not very personal. Not the restaurants fault but later iun the meal the table next to ours had two loud, obnoxious couples at it.

    Had the mussels soup as a starter; albeit good the mussels were nonexistent. We both ordered the rack of lamb and a side of asparagus. The lamb was delicious but only 3 small chops on the rack at $31, a bit overpriced. We had a total of 3 glasses of red wine, which was good. The service was outstanding, the food great, and the ambience as well; all well suited for a special date or occasion. However am not quite convinced of the value for what you got and they may price themselves out of business. I would definitely go back and have several times but there are plenty of fine restaurants in the Lehigh Valley where you get the same quality or better for a better price, so the visits here will be few and far in between.

    I love the romantic, relaxed feel of the place. The food is amazing and I enjoyed the fun martins/ specialty drinks. The cheesecake is to die for!! And now my favorite place for dessert. The staff are great! Attentive and know exactly the perfect time to come to the table. My overall experience from the friendly Hostess to our servers was perfect. I would recommend Blue to anyone looking for a nice romantic dinner. Or even a group. I will be back again when I'm in need of the perfect night out.

    I treated my daughter to a special dinner there, and we had a very nice time! Service was excellent. Our waiter was checked on us regularly. The managers and other staff checked on us as well. Our dinner was great! We tried a few of the seafood dishes on the menu as well as the Veal Parmesan- all were seasoned and prepared to perfection. The portion sizes were big- we had plenty of left overs to enjoy at home. The only complaint would be that my daughter's fries were way too salty. (We've eaten fries there before, and this was the first time they were this salty!) We will definitely have another mother-daughter dinner there again! :)

    I learned a hard lesson this time at Blue: always get the steak. I decided to go with the grilled scallops this time around and I totally regretted it, not because they weren't cooked perfectly or because they didn't taste great (both are true), but because every time I saw a steak meant for someone else go by, I'd become instantly jealous of that person and their dinner. Oh well, we'll be back again...and I will get the steak next time! p.s. save room for the Hula Pie dessert!!

    We ate here since we couldn't get a reservation at a restaurant at the Sands, and I'm glad we did. This was a fantastic restaurant on par w/ NYC metro steakhouses. Upscale, modern with great ambience. The food was excellent. I had a steak which was perfect, while my dinner companions had fish. One ordered the salmon reluctantly and said afterwards I am now a salmon person. The bar area is large enough to accommodate a good crowd and also has lounge seating adjacent with a fireplace. While it is winter it looks like they have a great outdoor section. This is an upscale find in what appears to be the middle of rural Pennsylvania. Will absolutely return on our next trip to the Sands.
