A word from The Blue Star
The Blue Star is a sleek, sophisticated restaurant offering an escape from the norm. The Blue Star offers two different dining rooms for two different dining experiences. Each room has its own menu. Menus change frequently based on fresh local product availability and guest feedback. The lounge offers a more social scene and first come/first served seating. There is hip music playing overhead, the bar is inside the room, and there are tall round tables for cocktailing. The dining room is much quieter and is surrounded by sophisticated decor, wood floors, white table cloths and an open kitchen. We are known for our extensive wine list, and offer 1/2 off bottles of wine on Sunday nights. The private Wine Cellar is not available for online booking, but give us a shout for details. No outside food or beverage but we'd be happy to create your custom cakes.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "We went on Sunday for half price bottles of wine. Calamarie and chicken wraps outstanding. Server Brandie lovely and attentive. Chef Will came to our table to discuss his food philosophy and my husbands dairy allergy. Sophie a beautiful knowledgeable sommelier. Do yourself a favor and go!"

  • "We had a party of 7 and are big food sharers, so I got to sample most of the dishes. All were excellent, including the deserts. My group is from out of town, so we ate out every night this week. Having Crème Brule at 5 different spots this week, Blue Stars was by far the best. the only negative comment was the portion size. We are not mass volume value eaters, but even for fine diners the portions were a bit small. Two in my party had a fabulous lamb soup that looked lonely in the bowl.....the bowl appeared to be less than half full. So even though the food was fabulous, my group rated Blue Star 4th out of the 5 dining establishments we visited this week mostly because of the portion size."

  • "This is one of our favorite restaurants and this time we were even more impressed. We were seated in the wine cellar, lovely and romantic. The service was the best we have ever experienced here. Food was wonderfully prepared and presented. The wine recommendation was perfect. We highly recommend the Blue Star for a special event dinner."

  • "We took our two children (17 and 13) here for a good grades dinner. After we were seated we were greeted by our server who was friendly and efficient throughout the meal. She was the only server that night (or so it appeared) and she never let service slide. We ordered a bottle of wine off the extensive wine list suggested by the sommelier which was lovely and complemented our meals. Everyone had something different from hors d'oeuvre, to main course, to dessert. We have been here for several special meals since we moved to Colorado Springs 10 years ago and have NEVER been disappointed. It is definitely our GO TO restaurant when we want to celebrate a special occasion. We can always depend on The Blue Star for exceptional food and service."

  • "My server night before last was the man. He was knowledgeable, friendly, honest and didn't come hound us every five sec. He was honest enough to tell it's the Basil/Pepper Corn Ice Cream was not good(we tried it and agreed). Only negative(other than the ice cream) was the portions did not match the price. $30 for my ladies halibut, $25 for my pork and I still felt the need to go grab a bite. Could have gone to Outback and paid less and got more. The food did taste great, but it's such a small portion. Great service, atmosphere, drinks all around nice place to be. Other than the ice cream and the one table giving my gf and I the stink eye(possibly because we are interracial/or the fact that she is hot and me not so much) I say 3of 5*"

  • "I have been here many times. There is a bar menu and a restaurant menu; both of them are great! This time we were celebrating a birthday and had dinner in the dining room. The service was excellent, and the farm-to-table gourmet food was wonderful! (In our group, we tried out the halibut, the wild boar, and the quail.) We also got the charcuterie plate. Highly recommended! It's an unassuming building with a jewel inside..."

  • "The waitstaff was fantastic. They stopped by the table when needed but didn't constantly bother us. The food was all really good. Both fish and lamb were perfectly cooked. Mussels which can easily be under or over cooked were perfect and tasted great. Dessert was awesome."

  • "I search the Internet for the best romantic restaurants in Colorado Springs and This was listed as number 3. My wife and I really enjoyed every aspect of this restaurant. The food was delicious to say the least, and the service was second to none. This by far the best dining experience we have had so far in Colorado. We would definitely recommend this restaurant to everyone wanting to enjoy a great meal with someone they love. I almost forgot to mention that they listen to requests, they gave my wife a single red rose just as I had asked and also were kind to pay for our desserts."

  • "This place simply doesn't disappoint...menu is variable and uniformly excellent, service warm, personal, attentive, sharp...and the cost is reasonable. Very happy with every experience there!"

  • "The food here was excellent, no question. However, the overall experience was not. Although less than half of the tables were full (weeknight) and we had made a reservation, it took 3 people and 5 minutes to have our table ready, the wait service was very slow (not just relaxed), and the room was uncomfortably cold. Each of the wait staff's recommendations was the most expensive item in each category, and the individually priced side salads were too expensive when paying $25 for a standalone entree."

  • "Great food. Innovative cooking and fantastic taste. Great service too. Loved 15 year old balsamic vinegar with olive oil for bread dipping. Will definitely go back when we visit Colorado Springs."

  • "Don't let the outside fool you, inside the staff was very good, and the menu changes frequently. Nice choice of starters and the mussels were excellent. Full bar, and descent wine list, make it a nice place for couples. Not much on the menu for kids, but definite adult friendly. Tough to find a place to park, but definitely worth the effort to dine there. "

  • "The Blue Star made our special night even better! I don't think that there is a bad choice anywhere on this imaginative menu. I had the duck and my wife enjoyed the scallops. Our server was one of the best that I have seen in the Springs. We will be back again and again!"

  • "We were a party of 10, I made the reservations for CC graduation 6 weeks in advance. I was NOT disappointed! They gave us a great table and our waiter was very attentive! The food was very good. We had a Cordon Bleu trained Chef in our party and he gave Blue Star 4 out of 5 stars! We also had my parents with us and our waiter was VERY patient with them! I really appreciated that! "

  • "We choose this spot using Yelp for its focus on using locally sourced foods. We were a party of seven celebrating a special event and we were treated with special care. Everyone was happy with their food and we did try the full range of selections. The serving staff was genuinely friendly and efficient, attentive without interfering in our experience."

  • "Rates as top notch service, knowledgeable server, good wine list and sommelier. Food, good selections, but seems as if they are trying to hard to be different. The dessert was a total disappointment, creme brulee - cold as ice! Clearly the sugar was done in advance and put in a fridge. I enjoyed having a different and varied menu, but was not as impressed with the food as I was with the service. "

  • "After seeing great reviews in line, we were disappointed with our. Entries the bison bourgignon could have been any ground beef, the vegetarian cavatelli bland. The mixed drinks were good as was the mixed green salad and the chèvre with pickled beet appetizer. Desserts were ok but nothing exceptional. At $100 for two we were disappointed."

  • "We were a party of 7 and had similar experiences. The food is pricey and while you won't walk away hungry you won't be taking home a doggie bag. Overall each meal was too salty."

The outer appearance and location had us initially wondering the decision but the food and service will certainly bring us back."
