Waitress was excellent. Everyone was friendly.
We had a choice this evening of the special three-course Valentines menu or ordering off of the menu. We were just as happy ordering off of the menu… Best fried green tomatoes ever and wonderful and interesting dining choices. Shannon did a great job of getting us our food quickly and efficiently. We loved sitting directly across the street from the FedEx forum to people watch and get a good feel for the Westin Hotel.
Awesome fried green tomatoes and the salads are great. Service was excellent
The waitress was great but bar was understaffed and took way to long to receive a drink with the meal. Food was ok but not worth what was paid.
We come to Bleu often before games and other events at the FedEx Forum. We always get good service and food. Try the corn chowder and pear salad are delicious. The menu changes seasonally which is great since we go so often.
Waitress was great. Food was Subpar. Hotel restaurant and felt like it.
Service too cloe
Food was adequate. Service was poor. We were one of two tables, yet waitress did not get our orders correct. Food came to our table chaotically... and cold. Had a trouble getting refills on drinks. Servers definitely were not up to standards expected for this price range.
We were 10 minutes late and had not called. The staff had given our table to another family but quickly worked to get us a table. Receptionist and waitress were very accommodating as we were hurrying to get to a basketball game! Thanks to everyone at the restaurant we were in our seats prior to top off!
Great meal before a Grizzlies game!
I got the filet mignon. It was way overcooked. Service was extremely slow. The veggies on my plate were almost non existent for the price I paid. Restaurant was clean, quiet and very nice in appearance. Server was very nice but it took us an hour to get our food and the place was not busy at all.
I wouldn’t go back
We ordered the fried cheese curds with honey siracha sauce. Asked for a little ranch as well since my wife doesn’t do spicy. The order was placed on the table and then we were told there was no honey siracha sauce so they gave us chipotle ranch. Disappointed. Did not work with the cheese curds. Ordered a wedge salad and the pork chop. My daughter ordered salmon with baby carrots and other veggies. Wedge salad came out and we were then told they had no blue cheese. Salad was a bust. Pork chop was awesome. Salmon was average. Baby carrots were raw carrot sticks and the other veggie was limp broccoli. Uninspired to say the least. Place needs to step up their game.
We spent Christmas dinner at Bleu Restaurant and Lounge. Food was great and the service was excellent. Shannon was super friendly, provided great service and made us laugh. Our son lives in Memphis and next time we visit, we will definitely visit Blue Restaurant again!
Below average food. No taste whatsoever
This place has changed over the years since I last eaten there, the food was terrible on Saturday and I should have known because it was a red flag the place was empty.
Bleu never disappoints! From the moment you are greeted by the best hostess , the cuisine and service matched her hospitality.
Great location. Friendly staff. Good food! I will be a repeat guest!
Danica was great! Because there was a concert that night, the food came out almost too fast!! However, really nice experience. Thank you!!!
Slow. Awful service.
We loved our server Shannon and the food was excellent and prices were reasonable.
First off, the waitress, Shannon, was the most helpful and pleasant! My mom didn't like her beer, so Shannon put it in the fridge until I was ready for it. The fried green tomatoes with bacon jam was one of the highlights! I also had the filet mignon with potato puree and green beans; the steak was hands down one of the most tender and flavorful steaks I've ever had! The only complaint I have is I wish I would of had more green beans as I had only about five small ones on the plate! We were in town for a Elton John Concert which was across the street at the Fed Ex Forum. I would highly recommend this establishment!
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.
Hi Allison, Please accept my apology that you didn't get the service you deserved. We unfortunately had some staffing issues at the last minute at affected our abilities to provide the level of service we like to have. Kind Regards, Carrie Ashley
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.
Hi Tammy, Thank you for your kind words about Carmen's service and the food. I will share them with the team. Kind Regards, Carrie Ashley
The restaurant was nice and quite, our service was awesome, and they did everything to ensure our date night was great
Nice place for a quite supper. Suitable for the casual dinner or someone visiting the downtown area. I would not recommend for people with children, but fine for teens.
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.
Mother daughter trip
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 !!
We had slow service at the end and never received our dessert bc we needed to leave to make our 8pm show. Very disappointed we didnt get to try the dessert bc all the food was so good.
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
We went to Bleu before a night at the Orpheum and it was perfect! It was not crowded, the server was fantastic, and the food and drinks were delicious! I will definitely be returning!
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!
our family of four (all adults) went for my wife's birthday, as well as pre-theater dining before an Orpheum show. Servicve was wonderfully attentive and the food was top-notch.
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!
Great service. Great food. Was surprised it was hardly nowhere there that night tho.
Food was delicious and server was very friendly!
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.
