Went for the Tuesday Big Eats special, goat cheese crusted chicken. Was extremely disappointed. The chicken was very dry and overcooked, like rubber. There really wasn't a crust of goat cheese, just some melted goat cheese on top. The last 2 times we have eaten here, we have been disappointed in the food, but thought we would give it one more try. At this point we will not be back. The place is very nice and the service is excellent. Too bad the food is not.

Great food in a great atmosphere. Our server Jenna was awesome. Very friendly and gave great recommendations. I was impressed that the manager was constantly present on the floor, checking to make sure everything was perfect and was even clearing tables to help out his crew.

This is one of my favorite in Winston Salem. However this night the food was off. But I am giving them a pass because it was New Year Eve

The food was very good, well prepared and nicely presented. As a Service Quality Professional I give them high marks on service and with a few small additions they could be even better. There is a lot of variation from customer to customer and server to server so without having the benefit of numerous visits I can only respond with my limited exposure on this one visit. Based on my experience and general observations during my visit I would recommend it.

Excellent dinner experience. This is our ‘go to’ restaurant for special occasions and out of town guests. The food is excellent and the service is always wonderful! Melissa is always the best, whenever we dine with her as our server. A solid favorite!

Everything was very nice. Food was excellent. Only problem was the sangria we ordered was not a true sangria cocktail since it was not sweet but our waitress was nice enough to change them out from red to white sangria. It was good but could have been a bit sweeter. Overall everything was very nice & we plan on going back for another girl's outing!

Service and atmosphere was great. Food was only ok - salmon over done and flavorless. Cheese ravioli was good. If the food catches up to the service, could be a go-to place.

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.

The food was average- nothing spectacular. The serving sizes of the dishes was small, considering the price you pay.
The service wasn’t anything to brag about either. Certainly wouldn’t recommend and won’t be returning.

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.
