Blue On Highland
Brandon was an amazing server! He knew the menu really well and gave us really amazing suggestions.
We had a group of 25 people at two tables for a graduation celebration. When we walked in we immediately loved the ambiance/atmosphere in Blue on Highland. We had one server and were a little concerned it might be too much for her to handle 25 of us..we were wrong. Kristen was great! The menu was varied and delicious. We especially loved the mussels. Everybody in our party of 25 was very satisfied. Thank you Blue on Highland!
Waitress was grumpy and dismissive. Three out of our five orders were wrong or undercooked.

A bit understaffed but our server kept us up dated with meals. She commanded with a large booth for 6
way too noisy for conversation...this, unfortunately, takes away from the food, which is quite good.
It’s always busy at lunchtime and a bit noisy. Even as I say noisy, somehow it just becomes a din & is not annoying. Maybe because service is excellent & food is too. They get you in & out if that’s what you want or let you sit & enjoy your company. Delightful!
Love this place! The staff is friendly, and my husband and I can enjoy a nice dinner -- with our kids. I had the BEST lobster roll the other night. Paired with a glass of wine, it was a really nice Mother's Day Dinner :)
Super spot and love the energy, fun versus uptight. Not too casual or too fancy, prefect quality! Loved it!
Great meal. Great vibe. Was a solid Mother's Day Brunch venue.
Our waiter was great.
It's a favorite place to go. The salads are outstanding and there's something for everyone on the menu.
Diverse menu... Fresh everything... And reasonable!
The noise level was as loud as a sports bar, but there were no tvs or other media to cause noise, just poor acoustics. Meal was OK, not a lot of taste. Would not go there again.
Overall our experience was excellent. My only complaint would be the noise level...it gets very loud. Look forward to going back! Thanks and have a great day.
It was not busy Sat luncheon time. Everything was great!
We came to the conclusion that the chef must smoke because every dish was very over-seasoned. The vinagrette on my salad make my mouth pucker - way too much lemon. I couldn't finish it. My husband's risotto had way too much blue cheese (weird choice anyway) and his cucumber cocktail tasted like water. My fish tacos were very good though and the service was very friendly and attentive. So it was okay, but won't hurry back.
After several years of not visiting Blue on Highland, I was very excited made a reservation and brought several couples along. We arrived on time Sat nite was greeted and the told before we were even seated (our reservation was at 6:30pm) that we had to be excited by 8PM because of another party arriving at that time. SHOCKED, and very surprised by this statement our dining experience was shattered. We felt very uncomfortable during the evening. I spoke to the manager when leaving explaining our experience, without satisfaction.
Excellent menu, server was attentive and multiple beverage options for any palate.
I ordered the tai salad and they forgot to put the avocado in it
Excellent food, great service, good value, easy parking
Good food & good beer selection. Nice place to meet some friends.
It is a good neighborhood restaurant with parking in the back.
Frank makes the best drinks in town. A good drink is a great start to a great meal. We did not get main course but appetizers are always outstanding: tuna poke and lamb lollipops are our favorites.
The bolognese was excellent!
We arrived with an 8:15 pm reservation. We were sat along the backside of the bar. You knew every time the bartender used a bottle along the wire wall. We were given bread and water to start. We then waited about 10 or more minutes for a server. The server stated she wasn't our server but could get drinks for us. I told her we were ready to order so she took the whole order. Then we received the drinks, not sure who dropped them off. Then I received a salad. The meals may have been brought by our server, again not sure. Someone did check on us half way through the meal. I never did get a refill on my soda or anymore water. We ran out halfway through the meal. The food was good. I had the lobster ravioli and it was delicious. Just wish we had more interaction with our server. When you are paying a decent price for a good meal, I don't like it to be fast food service.
I thought the food was really excellent. The menu is very good for casual dining or diner entrees. Service was very pleasant.
Such a great place for food and atmosphere! A favorite of ours!
Love both the fish and tuna poke tacos. Great lunch... can’t wait to go again
I went to lunch with a friend. We had the most delicious meal. I had a turkey burger with all the fixins, no bun and sweet potato fries. My friend had the soup of the day, split pea and the buratta salad. Our food was spectacular! Izzy our waitress is superb. Friendly and attentive in a very lovely way. Izzy helped make our experience fantastic. We love Blue anyway, but today it was very special!
Good for a quick bite on a weeknight. Service was a bit slow, but we were catching up with friends so it didn't matter. Fish tacos were excellent, and I don't even like fish.
Love coming here and meeting a friend for lunch or dinner. Food,service are excellent! Sometimes a bit noisy but not always! Sat in an enclosed booth and it was perfect! Seems to be one of my preferred meeting places!
Burgers cooked just right! Our server, Lady, was terrific!
This place is always great. Burgers are the best in Greater Boston. Beer and burgers for lunch with exceptional service.
Friendly, attentive service. Lots of menu options - but not for vegetarians or vegans. Even the salads had steak and bacon. I'm sure they would've left off certain items, yet it would've been nice to see one or two interesting vegetarian options.
My salad was good yet my friends' lobster bisque was "very average". I would still give this restaurant another try, because I enjoyed the atmosphere and good service (reservations, hostess and server).

Waitress was very attentive. Appetizers were very good as was main meal. Would go again and would absolutely recommend
We have been to Blue on Highland several times. Being able to reserve a booth is essential for our enjoyment. Happy to be able to do that through Open Table
We were able to get a booth...which helps a LOT with the noise! We LOVE their sweet potato fries, shrimp tacos and caesar salad. We make this a regular when my friends and I meet monthly to catch up. Plenty of options and haven't been unhappy with the food yet.
We love Blue on Highland. The food is delicious, the staff is great (thanks Nicole) and it has a great atmosphere. Everyone enjoyed their dinner.
Always great drinks and apps! Love my sweet potato fries and truffle fries! Got to sit at my favorite high top in the bar area - best people watching around! :)
Nice spot in the suburbs. Ambiance was nice, server was great. Food was good. Nothing we ordered wow'd us, but it was all good. It was pretty much as expected. Overall we though it was a solid option.
