Lovely experience, excellent food. We were seated at the front window and felt the tables were too close together though. 4 tables of 2 in that line and really 3 tables would be much more comfortable for all. Can hear all conversations etc of people beside. In saying this it would not put me off going back but I’d ask for a different table.

We use to love Blue. The last two visits the service has been really poor. Everyone can have an off day but this was even worse. Apart from waiting for our order for nearly an hour after sitting we had two members of our party wait nearly 10 minutes after everyone else for their food. We then had to ask for missing food for the table. I asked 3 times for water and had to go to the bar myself to get sone. Eventually the waiter turned up with water. The main point would be that the restaurant wasn’t even busy. Going out for dinner is an experience and it’s not just about the food. If service is really bad it ruins the atmosphere and the experience. I think it will be a long time before we consider going back to Blue.

I t was my second time here and I was not blown away the first time either. We were seated in a small room to the right on the way in and it felt like we were in the Crying Room of a Church. It was totally separate from the beautifully decorated restaurant. It was very disappointing. The other two tables were full of small children which was perfect for them as the kids could not annoy other diners. We were 4 adults and I have no problem with kids but we were not part of the restaurant. I also find the food is very expensive and totally over rated. I wont be back

A great venue with fab food and great staff with a lively atmosphere. We have noticed that the price seems to have increased over recent months, as an average starter is around 9/10 euro, bit steep.

Went with my mam and 2 sisters for a pre Christmas lunch. Food was delicious, staff were lovely and friendly and although there weren't too many while we were there (it was quite early on a Monday) the decor was lovely with a lovely Christmassy atmosphere 🎄😊. Will definitely return.

I have been a regular at blue bar ever since it opened. The food, ambiance and service are all very good but in recent times the prices have gone up for the same food. Value for money is not there anymore and I am disappointed that blue bar have pushed up prices so much.

Restaurant was only one third full so everything should have been great. We gave been here before many times with different groups, doubt we will go back again.

Food took an awful long time to come. When it did one of the meals was stone cold, then sent back. They comp'd that item. They seafood chowder was absolutely shockingly bad.

None of the waiting staff visited the table all night to see if we needed drinks or if everything was OK.

When it came to deserts we ordered two items. I could see the items sitting in the kitchen hatch for 15 minutes and there were no staff available to bring them over, no waiting staff at all. I had to phone the restaurants main number from my mobile phone to ask someone to bring over the items of which one was melted ice cream. They comp'd these too.

We would prefer to not receive free food but instead good service.

Really nice setting was a gold evening however the restaurant was really cosy. Only complaint is that we asked for 2 glasses of water and on the bill there was a diet coke and a soda line we didn't order and assume these were for the tap water we requested! Didn't want to highlight it as other than that everything else was excellent.

Lovely venue for Graduation meal - staff were lovely service excellent as were legendary wings.

Expresso cocktails a great success - and sparkler in dessert was great fun. It is quite a drive but Skerries is so pretty and bar is worth the trip.
