Had a reservation before a concert. Waited for an hour after we were seated and only got water. Ordered drinks and appetizers and 1 hour later still had not seen our waitress again. Horrible experience. We walked out because we could not find a manager/ waitstaff to help us.

Please accept my apologies. We had challenges on Saturday with staffing due to tardiness and absence. We did the very best we could under the circumstances but I know it wasn't enough. I am so sorry our problems impacted your night out and that you left for the concert without getting any service or food. Kind Regards, Carrie Ashley

This was our second time to this restaurant, and it didn’t disappoint. The food was out of this world. We both got the shrimp and grits which were delicious! The service in general was a little slow, but it may have been due to the concert/appeared under staffed. However, our server, Shannon, did an amazing job. We will definitely return!

Thank you for your kind words about the food and Shannon's service. We did have some last minute staffing issues and I'm sorry that it affected the speed of service. I'm sorry that it affected you on your visit to us. Kind Regards, Carrie Ashley

They were understaffed. The waitresses were cheerful and definitely doing their best under the circumstances. Our soup was lukewarm and it took a while for drink refills and for the food to arrive. I think everything would’ve been better had they had more staff.

The food was incredibly good - everything we ordered was fantastic. The folks in the kitchen who developed the cheese/cauliflower/bacon side that accompanies the ribeye need a medal. That could be an entree on its own. Carmen took excellent care of us. We will definitely be returning soon.

I only gave this 4 star because our food was excellent but what I did not like was the restaurant is located in a hotel. I did not realize this when I made our reservations. Service was excellent and the food delicious, I recommend eating there if you are staying at the hotel but why would you since Beal Street is just out the door and down a block with many fabulous restaurants.

We had dinner at Bleu prior to a show at the FedEx Forum. Our server was very attentive and sweet. Dinner was really good ... halibut for me and grilled Caesar salad with chicken and roasted red pepper soup for my husband. 😋!! We will definitely be back !!

Service was excellent. Was surprised by how small the shrimp and grits portion was. A little disappointed for something that cost $28. Everything else was really good

Shannon was a great server! We went before a show at the Orpheum. I was a little surprised it wasn't busier. It's such a short walk to the theater. The food was excellent!

2nd visit. 2nd great experience. Friendly, professional staff, food prepared and presented well. Pre Orpheum dinner, we were out in plenty of time to leisurely walk to theater.
6 in our party: drinks, appetizers, entrees and desserts.
Shannon, our waitress, was amazing!

Food was really fabulous. We ate early as we had to catch a plane, so didn't get to take advantage of what looked like was going to be a fun place to be. I would go back . . . and love free valet!

We went for Mother's Day Brunch. The first issue that I encountered was when I asked the server for the salmon to be prepared medium rare, I was told that she would see what she could do for me. When our food arrived, my salmon was medium well. My Mother also ordered the salmon, and there was absolutely no distinction. It was obvious that all the salmon dishes were prepared in advance. Additionally, the portion size was very small for a $26 meal that didn't include bread/rolls or a side salad. My plate contained the salmon, approximately a half a cup of couscous, 3 asparagus spears and one small carrot. We left the restaurant hungry.
The ambiance was cold and business like. I do need to mention that the hostesses were friendly and attentive, and our server was attentive. I believe the restaurant caters to business professionals that are traveling, since it's connected to The Westin. I didn't realize this was a hotel restaurant until I arrived.
I will not be returning here. I would only suggest this place for drinks and a light meal or appetizers for people not looking for a filling meal.

I was expecting it to be good but it was far better than I expected. The food was outstanding! And even though we’d prepared to be there a while because a lot of other reviews said the service was slow, our service was quick. It was a wonderful dining experience!

Very nice restaurant at street level in the Westin just off of Beale St. Nice menu choices and reasonably-priced. It was a very quiet early evening on a Saturday. We enjoyed a charcuterie board, beet salad and short ribs. We shared them and it was a great meal for two.

They were cleaning the floors, so we ate in a nearly empty restaurant, so I cannot comment on the atmosphere. But the food was seasoned and heated perfectly. Staff was very kind.

We went there before a concert and really enjoyed it. The food was very tasty and generous in size. The only negative was the dessert. We shared a chocolate mousse and it was quite small and very average in flavor-not bad at all but nothing remarkable about it. Plus it was expensive.!

The food was very good but the service was a bit lacking. They seemed to be short staffed. A member of the cleaning staff bused the table. We will try again because the food was good. Hoping it was just a bad night for staff.

Went in and no one attended us, not even after we walked up to the bar. I am not a picky person and worked in the food industry for five years. The place was unwelcoming to say the least.

Limited menu, but executed very well. Server not classically trained, but was very polite and friendly, very enthusiastic and attentive (just the right amount - not hovering over, but never far away) - far and away better than 99% of the wait service I've received in Tennessee.

Bleu is now my absolute favorite spot to go either before or after an event at the Fedex Forum - and maybe even just when visiting Memphis to stroll on Beale. Great place.

Food was exceptional. Best salmon we've ever tasted. Creative new look at favorites such as fried green tomatoes.
Server was fairly new, but appropriately attentive and fun.
I will be making this a regular stop in our downtown dining rotation.

We met our son for dinner on the way to a Grizzlies game at the FedEx Forum. If you’re from out of town the thing you should know is that this is THE place to dine if you’re going to the FedEx Forum. I had the Pan Seared Canadian Salmon and it was excellent. Everyone ordered something different and everyone enjoyed their dinner. Very nice bar. Good craft drink selection and decent wine selection. We were trying to get going to make the game and our waitress was very pleasant and efficient at getting us in and out without feeling like we were hurried.
