Bleu is a lovely restaurant - a hidden gem—with excellent food and service. This is a place to go to unwind and relax while dining on excellent food. If you want to actually be able to have a conversation without using a megaphone or even a private conversation without the next table overhearing, it is possible at Bleu. Tables are far enough from each other for both privacy and ease in serving. The food is excellent and service is attentive without being intrusive. There is excellent value in terms of food, service, atmosphere and price. I highly recommend this restaurant.

My wife and I have been coming here for years on our anniversary. The food has always been good. This year, my wife ordered the crumb fried seafood. It was very greasy. My flat iron steak and crab cake was good but for $80, I expected better.

Along with Village Tavern and Milner’s, BLEU is simply one of the finest, most elegant restaurants in the area.

From the moment you walk through the door - until you taste the best dessert in Winston Salem - this restaurant is worth every single penny you spend.

The food is all wonderful, but it’s hard to top the quality of service and management. Every single member of the BLEU team always brings their “A” game. They are amazing!! The manager (Sam) always treats you like family and makes you want to come back again and again! He makes every customer feel
like they are the only one there.

Some favorite menu items of ours:
*Thai spring rolls
*All salads (best honey mustard dressing - ever!)
*Salmon
*Cinnamon Roll French Toast for brunch
*Quiches for brunch

And for dessert - Cinnamon Bun Bread pudding - I dare you to try to find a better dessert in Winston Salem.

Bleu is - without fail - a classy, elegant, wonderful night or brunch out. They have the best staff and some of the best food in town!

The food was absolutely amazing! It was quite busy when we arrived, but the bartender was funny and entertaining while we waited to be seated. We had a reservation at 7:30 but did not get seated until 8 pm. That part was slightly annoying, however the food made up for it all!

Glad we had a reservation. Food was good. Service was great. Was a bit of a bummer that the table close to us kept adding people to their birthday party table—so it was a bit chaotic and loud for those of us around them. The food was not affected though as appetizers were out super quick, followed by salad, entrees and dessert.

Nice varied menu. Can easily do appetizer/small plate plus side or salad for a meal. Service was fabulous!
Our waiter was on it! (This was even during a college family weekend!)

Great food and ambience! Management was trying hard but understaffed for WFU Parents Weekend. Food was good and they all tried their best for a nice save after having a serious shortage of help for this busy weekend!

We came for an early dinner for our anniversary. I admit, I was expecting more from their cocktail game.... both of ours were lackluster. Food was great tho, and we enjoyed the service. We’ll go back — bar deserves a second chance!

Sam the manager was off and things just were not the same! They started with only two wait staff and never quite got up to speed! Plus there was an extremely loud table in the back of restaurant that frankly disrupted the entire restaurant! On the bright side the food was outstanding salmon was cooked and presented to perfection,will return when Sam is working

We were really looking forward to dining here after seeing the menu online. The food was ok but it get overpriced. It was seasoned well but the quality of the meat and seafood felt cheap. Most importantly, our sever was uninterested in us. We should have left considering it took her 25 minutes (and speaking to a manager) to get her to come to our table. Then she acted like we were a burden. Very disappointed.

the lobster was overcooked, and the "drawn butter" was dark-colored and not good. My business partner, though, loved his steak. He gave it a 5 and my vote was a 3.5

Always a pleasure to dine here. Great food, friendly staff, relaxing atmosphere. Sam, the manager, makes us feel like family. Sarah, our server this time, made sure we were well taken care of. We dine here frequently and are never disappointed, whether it's a dinner for two or a lunch to catch up with good friends.

The presentation of the server's and the hostess was poor. They were not conducive to the quality of restaurant that Bleu was advertised to be. The food was ok, but not worth the price. The dining room floor was dirty and the dining room felt cold.
We were there to celebrate a birthday for my daughter, who's husband is a Executive chef. We chose Bleu because of the menu and pictures. Not a true depiction of the restaurant.

It's been awhile since I visited Bleu but my friends wanted to meet there so we did.
Our server was excellent...everyone was friendly...but the drinks were small & a bit overpriced.
My friends ordered the baked brie plate which appeared nice but nothing special and the crab dip which was good but small portioned. I had the seafood fettuccini which had a good amount of seafood in it but not a very outstanding flavor.
Perhaps had we tried something different from the menu our experience might have been better. The food and drinks weren't bad... I just felt the price was out of line with the quality and quantity.

Ran out of what we ordered. Waitress was nice but frazzled. Sat in side room on the right of main dining room and there was no ambiance in that area. Had a guest with us and it was disappointing.

We really like this restaurant but....we've been there many times and it seems like the menu hasn't changed in a while. Also the food quality seems to be down just a tad, at least on one of our favorite things - we used to love the dill marinated fried chicken. Last time it looked more like small thin chicken tenders. Still one of our favorite places and will be returning often. Prices are quite reasonable for the ambiance, food, and service that you get. We would still recommend Bleu to everyone.

Met a relative while coming thru Winston-Salem on the way to the mountains for Labor Day Weekend. The food was good, but we were a little disappointed that food we saw on the online menu was not on the restaurant menu. The booth we were offered was also a little tight for 3 adults.

Meh.... Food sounded good, but wasn't ordered duck. Duck itself was below-par, nearly tasteless. It came with bok choi. But instead of a real vegetable side-dish, which is what one would expect for bok choi, it was a disappointing mish-mash - mostly sweetened dried cranberries, lots of corn, and barely enough bok choi for a dash of green color, barely even a taste. Spinach salad, in contrast, was good. Wine selection and pricing was good too. Server was great - just wish she'd had better food to serve...

The dinner courses arrived bam, bam, bam. Not a minute in between. Food was served on the cold side. We felt rushed from the moment we were given menus. The server was dour and never came to ask if we wanted another drink or needed anything. Had to ask for bread. Not a good experience. Will not return.
