Four of us tried to eat here on Friday night and it was a huge disappointment. The filet and prime strip came out Pittsburgh rare instead of medium. On the second failed attempt the steaks came out rare...purple and glossy. No third try was given. After our guests ate, we went to Emerils Chophouse and had a good dinner. Terrible experience. A steakhouse only has to do a few things right and most importantly is to cook a steak correctly.

I was there during the Christmas season for dinner with five of my girlfriends. The food was wonderful (we all had scallops). They were done perfectly, along with a great Caesar salad and chocolate cake for dessert. Our waitress was exceptional - attentive, polite and made a point of not rushing us out the door. The atmosphere was very festive and relaxing. Definitely one of our favorite restaurants!

Food was great, Gina was one of the best servers we’ve ever had. Can’t say a bad thing about her. Pricey, but everything else kinda made up for it. Duck was excellent.

My husband ordered a particular cut of steak based on the server's recommendation. I suppose it was our fault for not asking the price - but we were floored when we got our bill - the steak alone was over $100.00. sorry but we won't be back!

Great service, good pacing of service. We had market-priced steak and lobster (priced for the New York market, so be sure to ask). Both dishes were perfect. Sides of Yukon mashed potatoes, steamed asparagus, and chopped Brussels sprouts with bacon were delicious accompaniments, and in all would have fed four persons, not just two. I ordered a Grey Goose gimlet, rocks, to be made with Rose’s lime juice, but the bar did not have Rose’s. I was served instead what seemed a vodka tonic sweetened with simple syrup(?) Odd, but I decided to go with it, and possibly the bartender has invented something new. (These days it seems difficult to get a well-made gimlet just about anywhere outside a major city. Am I just too old-school?) Overall, this was an excellent dining experience, if a bit pricey. We will return.

Took our son there while visiting for Parents Weekend at Lehigh. Was really surprised to find such a gem. It was fun with great food. The type of place you can get dressed up or not and still feel special. The service was perfection. Our only complaint was our meat was just a little overcooked. The med rare should have been more pink. The mac and cheese was good but a little bland. Needs something.

We visited Blue for Lehigh Parents' Weekend. They were so accommodating from the start to the end. Our group grew to 10 people so they offered a private room to us which was wonderful. Everyone was very pleased with their meal. Service was outstanding.

We needed up going to Blue for my boyfriend’s birthday dinner and it was wonderful. The food was good and our service was excellent. Our server knew it was for his birthday and had the manager come by to wish him a happy birthday. He was also given a complimentary dessert with a candle in it. We ordered the beef short ribs, Calamari, and twin filets. Everything was excellent! We will definitely be going here again.

Very nice, but they clearly seat "Open Table" reservations and others in a special section. Booths and other areas in the restaurant were for "others". It was interesting to note. Wait staff was attentive, did have to ask for water after having it filled regularly at the beginning of the meal so inconsistent. Can't put my finger on it but an understated vibe that we simply didn't understand. Pretty place.

The service and the food was excellent; a bit on the pricey side. The dining room was very cold and dark. I saw a couple tables used the flashlight on their phone to read the menu. I was glad I brought a jacket with me, but my husband was cold all through dinner. I don't know why they had the room so cold.

Not what it used to be. Salad was over dressed to the point of being soggy. My husband and I shared the porterhouse steak which had not been seared but still tasted good and was very tender. Spinach sauteed in garlic & oil was also OK. I did love the bread. The drink was skimpy to say the least. One shot of scotch served in a small brandy snifter. I guess they were hoping I didn't notice the lack of substance of the drink but you don't serve scotch in a brandy snifter even without ice. All in all it was not our best meal at Blue. We will go back again.
