While I'd likely recommend it, we probably won't return anytime soon. It was just "blah". The waitress was okay friendly, but didn't wow us; a sign of a bustling economy I suppose. All in all, a B-

I had made a reservation for 7 PM, but apparently making a reservation does no good. When I went in the door, I told the hostess that I had a reservation and gave her my name. She confirmed that I had a reservation, then wrote my name down on a list of people waiting, and 20 minutes later finally seated us. I was a little surprised at that since I had made a reservation.

Phenomenal service and food. They were really well prepared for a busy night. I was able to get a drink, have an entree, and dessert, and leave all in 30 minutes. That was just absurdly quick, but the food was all fresh!

Great food and service. Only issue was I paid $28 for an entree and they didn't serve a salad. Just assumed a dinner entree of that value would come with a standard salad.

We visited for the first time New Year's Eve and food and service were great. I would recommend dimming the lights a bit as we felt like we were on display while dining.

Food and service was excellent, restaurant has great ambience.

Wished they had left more time between courses, appetizer/salad/main to enjoy and savor each course.
Overlapping courses made the meal feel rushed

Very nice dining experience. I called ahead to see about access for my wife's wheelchair and when we arrived they had a place all set for us. Waiter Phil was very helpful and patient with my wife, which in my opinion is rare these days. The food was very good, although a bit pricy for the quality. Seared shrimp was excellent, herbed chicken was good but a bit dry. But because of the ambience and the kindness of the staff, we will certainly return, perhaps for lunch next time. The manager checked on us several times during the meal and walked us out when we left. First class people all the way.

Great. I had the duck, I didn't care for the kimchi fried rice as it wasn't a great side dish and the corn underneath the duck with cherries or cranberries really didn't all mesh well.

Always a favorite of ours in Winston. Sam the manager meets us at door and we are always seated at a booth for four. Chef does a very good job and service is always good. We had two first rate entrees but skipped desert. Wine list as for as Chards are concerned is a little thin. Place would be perfect if they had Kendell Jackson Chard

A pre-Thanksgiving dinner with family was delightful. Everyone enjoyed their meals, ranging from lamb to shrimp and grits to a rare hamburger. Service was prompt. The restaurant is very attractive. Busy but definitely quiet. The menu offered a wide choice, hard to decide, so I’ll definitely come back again.

We went out with some friends with whom we had not seen in a while. They had not dined at Bleu for dinner and it was an excellent choice. We all selected something different. Ambience is modern but inviting and attractive. Sam is terrific host, wait staff excellent.

She Crab Soup had a couple of decent chunks of crab and while the soup had a lovely texture, it lacked flavor for me. I started looking for a salt shaker, as it seemed like that would do the trick but there was one on any table nearby.
The menu said that lunch entrees come with mashed potatoes and veggies, yet when my food came out it was Risotto for some reason.
Risotto was cooked perfectly, and the scallops as well. The dish was topped with a truffle vinaigrette. However this oil didn't resemble any taste of truffle oil at all. It tasted like cheap soy sauce. The sauce overpowered the dish completely and just making it extremely salty.
After packing the remainder to go, I went back to my office and warmed the food up. This time I actually took paper towels to dap the excess oil off the dish, it actually tasted like how it should have tasted the whole time.

We have always had a great meal at Bleu. It is tucked a little out of the way but not hard to find. Even though the restaurant was very busy with Wake Forest's Parents Weekend we received wonderful service by Anna. Our food was delicious and service was very attentive. Our out of town friends were impressed. Don't forget this little gem when you are looking for dining out options.

Since moving to Winston we had thoroughly enjoyed Bleu even recommending it to friends that were from the area but yet to visit. Not wanting to cook and craving a good steak, we ventured here 8/28/17 for dinner and boy were we sorely surprised. Our waitress and the maitre'd were fabulous and attentive as always but the food left much to be desired. The crab in our appetizer tasted frozen still and both steaks were tougher than nails. I ordered my steak Medium and my wife Medium Rare. Both of us struggled to cut into the steaks and they were tasteless, not evenly cooked, and just all around disappointing. After we paid for our meal I was informed the line cooks were new and having some problems adjusting, but there was just too much wrong with the food to warrant giving this another try. Truly disappointing culinary experience.
