    Our waiter was very nice but was not at all effecient. I had checked online for a restaurant that serves australian lobster tail and online menu said they did but they didn't. I asked the waiter about it and he said they only serve Maine lobster from Alaska ( kinda made me wonder )and they only had one of those( again kinda made me wonder). I asked if I ordered it could it please be broiled and he said certainly but it was steamed and tastless. Wanted a frozen margarita but he said they don't have a blender so I settled for on the rocks and it took 20 minutes to get it . Had to ask for bread and butter.I expected much better food and service . A hundred and twenty bucks for 2 people ain't cheap.

    It was our anniversary and they made it very special! We haven't been there for a while and now it is on our list to go again next week for my birthday! I love the old style service from start to finish! I felt like we had actually been somewhere! We eat out all the time, but I can't say "Man, that was really nice", we have only just gotten a lunch or meal out! This is a place that you would be proud to take a special friend!

    It was a very quiet Sunday evening after mothrer's Day weekend, but we enjoyed the a great meal at Suede Blue after all of the crowds. The service was attentive and the food was great for the price. My swordfish was delicious and beautifully presented and my wife's ahi was perfect and also a delight to look at. The beet salad we shared was very good and finishing the evening with a chocolate genache cake and raspberry sauce could not have been better.

    First the hostess could not find my reservation. We were seated and the server told us that he would have water and bread sent. He never came back and asked us if we wanted anything to drink. We had to ask for water each time we drain out glasses. We ate of bread for 45 minutes until the lobster mac and cheese appetizer came out luke warm at best and it was totally unseasoned. After an hour our food came out, the plates were warm but three of the four meals were cold. My daughter's fries were hot but totally overcooked. I asked to speak with the manager but he/she never came. The server took the food back and brought it back warm which was better but not great. At the end of the meal the server asked is he could buy us desert - I passed.

    Dined on 5/11/2014
    Making the reservation online was easy and convenient. We were seated immediately, and our server was prompt to take our drink and food orders. The half-order of Strawberry salad was cold, and very good. Our entree was reasonalbly warm, and attractively presented. The vegetables were supposed to be mixed, but I got two green beans, a lot of onions, and no carrots at all. My spouse had carrots, 3 or 4 green beans, and no onions at all. It was all sauted...barely. I like crisp vegetables, but these were pretty raw. The filet was to be cooked to medium rare...it was a little redder than I expected, but was still very tender and tastey. The balsamic reduction on the mashed potatoes was execellent. Strawberry shortcake dessert was fab!

My husband appreciated being able to order from the regular menu while our mother and myself loved the brunch offering. The food was quite tasty and not skimpy served in an elegant atmosphere.

    The first time we dined at Suede Blue we feel in love with it. The food is consistently outstanding and the wait staff is attentive and pleasant. The dining area is private and romantic but can also be set up to accommodate larger parties. The small outdoor patio has a few tables for dining. It also has chairs, sofas and coffee tables to provide a nice and intimate lounge atmosphere when local jazz artists and duos perform on weekend evenings. Dinner on the patio followed by a a glass of wine or two while enjoying wonderful quiet live jazz artists at Suede Blue is our local choice for a wonderful evening.

    We made a quick reservation on a Friday night.The back dining room was quiet. Nice white linen booth. We both had filet & lobster cooked was cooked perfect, though the bleu cheese crust on the filet was gooey, but easily removed. The wine list was pricey, but an order by the glass comes in a small carafe enough for 2 glasses.The bar is really loud on Friday nights, maybe a TGIF crowd.

    First off, the "star" system that OpenTable puts out is not the same as the one the New York Times uses. There are no real solid four star restaurants in the Sacramento area, but there are some real excellent ones, and Blue Sued is one of them. In New York, or Los Angeles Blue Sued would be a solid three star restaurant; and that's excellent. The Prime Rib was was top quality, as well as the au gratin potatoes. The one thing that keeps Blue sued from breaking from the three star level is that I could, and have, made everything I had at home. The price reflects that; moderately high prices for high quality food. Well worth it. The service was good, but maybe the staff could have been a little better informed about the menu.

    I took my husband to a birthday dinner with my daughter and her family. We were seated immediately. However, we did get any service for 5 minutes. Then we finally got water, but no server yet. About 10 min later finally, the server came and made excuses for there not being enough help. Our order was taken. We waited 40 minutes. And when then food arrived it was served to one person, then we waited and another dish came out and waited and so on, it took five times for the server to bring the food. Maybe it was an off night, but it was not an experience I would want to repeat.

    I took my boyfriend to Suede Blue for his birthday. Food was good; his rib eye was perfectly cooked and very tender. My sea bass was covered in a sweet sauce that totally overwhelmed the taste of the fish, although it was perfectly cooked and a substantial portion. After I ordered a glass of wine, the waiter never asked my boyfriend if he wanted anything to drink. I had to prompt the waiter that boyfriend would like a coke. I put comments on my reservation that this was a birthday celebration believing that the restaurant would be aware and perhaps acknowledged this occasion. We did order dessert, but waiter never mentioned the birthday.

    Our expectations were for a romantic dinner for two, a fine bottle of wine, steak and seafood. What we got was a wine list that was out-of-date; of the three bottles selected, none were the vintage listed on the list; a ’09 Cab was requested, and a ’11 was brought to the table (twice). The front end of the restaurant was very young and inexperienced, but very willing to please. During our dinner, four wait staff proceeded to build a table for 10 in the middle of the dinner area, and set a noisy group of eight in the middle of the room; an area where 6 couples were dinning peacefully; unforgivable. The food was excellent and very professionally prepared, but again the experience was deflated by the lack of luster wait staff reaching over the

    Suede Blue is meant for small groups. We had a group of six and they only had accomidations for 2, 4 and 8. It was a bit awkward but we managed. The manager and waiter were superb! Food was excellent although the shrimp bisque was more of a gravy that bisque. Everyone who had steak enjoyed their dinners and those of us with fish thoroughly enjoyed ours. Ambiance was attractive and inviting.

    Nice space but disappointing meal. Deconstructed wedge salad was uninspired and looked like it was plated by a five year old. Steaks were not seasoned and peppercorn sauce lacked flavor. Au gratin potatoes were Way too cheesy and the Hollandaise on the asparagus was broken, all sign of a lazy or unsupervised kitchen staff. Dessert was cold on inside, burned on outside, again a sign of kitchen staff that doesn't care.

    Only two sets of silverware for 4, No salt and pepper, did not know what winery wines listed on their menu came from, served baked potato with no sour cream (though ordered). Served Steak with no steak sauce. Never came to ask how it was, or if we needed anything. We had to flag them down . Sent steak to pack in a doggy bag and it was never returned to the table. Allowed empty drinks and water glasses to sit for a long time. Dessert menu came with "we're out of the two best things on the menu". Took way too long to bring food. Even after the manager was notified, they never even tried to offer a comp to try to make it right. It was like it was no big deal. The staff at this place needs some serious customer service training.

    What a calamity!! No one knows what's going on....we never got our appetizer after waiting over an hour - we Never got our salad after waiting an hour..(no bread either)..then finally our dinner arrived. Of course, when we ordered we told the waitress that we would like to enjoy our salad before our entree was brought out --- she said that was no problem. Then she came to the table to ask how our dinner was. She was completely oblivious to the fact that we had not been served our salad!! It was unbelievable....we told her how disappointed we were in the service. So here comes the manager.He makes so many excuses..told us the service was bad because they are college students not career people.BOTTOM LINE -DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY HERE!!!

    This was supposed to be a nice Valentine Celebration was disastrous! The service was totally lacking. This is Valentine Day, you need to figure out that it is going to be busy!!! Our waiter was ridiculously unable to handle just basic stuff. No bread, salad arrived with the meal and water glasses left unfilled. I saw the restaurant manager come into our dinner room and deal with two tables that were not happy and I can see why. I should have asked for him too. The food was decent, but the service ruined the entire experience. This restaurant is $$$, but the service is not on par. I cannot reccommend.
