Blu Alehouse - Riverdale
Table was ready for our reservation. Wait staff was polite and on point food came out fast and was fresh and hot. We had a great evening
First time here. Loved it. Service, Ambience and food were great. Will be back.
We enjoyed the restaurant very much and the food was delicious.
Great food, great service, first time and will be returning. Lobster Mac n Cheese was delicious!
I would of given more stars but be aware if you have a food allergy like gluten free ... don’t trust the staff. There are gluten free buns on the menu but that does not mean you will get it, even if you requested gluten free. My family enjoyed their food, atmosphere was great but after 2x messing up my order I called it a night. I do have to say the manager was supper nice and told me he would not charge me for my drink and the food I never received.
We made a reservation on Open Table and were seated immediately. Our server Kevin was excellent and was very attentive. The dinners were flavorful and reasonably priced. I would definitely go back and recommend to family and friends.
Service slow and poor. Overpriced for average food. So noisy and have to walk through bar crowd to use restrooms while drunks are all over you.
This place never disappoints friendly accomadating staff my wife loves the BluShrimp I had filet mining risotto which was great as well
We had our opentable reservations set for 7:30. We arrived about 10 minutes early but didn’t get seated until 8:05 pm which was a little disappointing. We’ve used open table reservations at many other restaurants and never had to wait more than 10 minutes. Other than this everything else was very good!!!
Fantastic experience. Food was superb and drinks were good.
Only knock is that if seated around the bar, there will be noise and possible ready folks at the bar. Try seating away from bar area if you want a perfect night!
Wait staff and management very attentive. Food was exceptional and would have received 5 stars except that one meal, the fish and chips, (party of 4) was not great. It literally was 3 small pieces of fish and about 10 fries on a huge plate. Looked paltry in comparison to the meals, chips and fries on the other plates. The only reason we didn’t complain was that we had plentiful appetizers and were planning to split dessert anyway.
Will definitely come back and try again. Reservations through Open Table are highly recommended!
Server was excellent and prompt. Very helpful on whatever we needed.
Very crowded and loud. Food was just ok. I had the Ahi tuna salad. It was very bland. The avocado rolls were tasty.
We chose to come here for New Years Eve! We heard great things and thought we’d give it a shot to close out the year! Our waitress Grace was excellent! But we arrived at 8:30pm and no one shared with us that the kitchen closed at 9pm. It put an abrupt end to our night. Also, our food was not very hot, although they were yummy. We got apps (mozzarella sticks and nachos). Both were like warm, at best. And the restaurant was not crowded. We will for sure give it a second chance to try entrees, especially considering everyone’s rave reviews, but it wasn’t the best first impression.
2nd visit , first time was great second not so much. New Years Eve , place was not full , service wAs friendly, nothing special being offered for meals. Food was good but came out cold (salmon dinner and chicken dinner) salmon cakes were just ok and fishy came broken on the plate.
After dinner we went to bar area for a bit. Service friendly but young. Bartender slurping leftovers out of jiggers( sloppy and gross) 1 bareback for whole bar (on NYE ) rediculous . No management in bar area at all.
Main crowd was a 21 Crowd dropping glass all over, no one seemed to care. Drunk young girl sleeping at table ( no one cared)
No hand towels in bathroom at 8 pm
1 guy at front door staring into his phone all night I guess he was a bouncer but zero interest .
The NYE time square was never moved to main tv .
We like the place but needs management presence seamed like all the adults had the night off sorry.
Great seat to fit the size of the party!! Great food!!
So glad to find you!! Great dinner and excellent service!!
We live 5 minutes away so we thought we would give this place a try. We had heard good things. The service, food, drinks & atmosphere was great. We went for my birthday & I am so glad we did. They have a good kids menu so it is very family friendly. It is my new favorite place to eat. Can’t wait to go back!! 😊
Great place to meet friends and enjoy dinner. Service was outstanding and food was good. Kitchen sent out one order without attending to specific request and one order came out so greasy it wasn't edible. Server quickly resolved the first issue and took the second item off the tab. Noise level was higher than I like, but better than many places and conversation was comfortable. We'll be back.
Went for dinner, drinks and music. Interesting craft beer selection although rather pricey for a very small glass. Food was ok - service was very friendly but inconsistent. Fun atmosphere and good music ... Thursday night with The Nerds.
One of the specials was so spicy, it was unbeatable. Both people who ordered it left it behind. First (and last) time I order off the specials menu. Burgers are always great.
Very nice place!
We went to Blu Alehouse for my husband's 39th birthday and we had a blast. The food was very good, and the service was excellent. The atmosphere is fun, too. I would highly recommend this restaurant and bar to anyone.
Had stayed away due to the crowded look, but went at 6:30 and it was quite comfy. didn't start to "crowd" up till about 8. the place was renovated beautifully. bar is separate from dining area for the most part, and they have many notable craft beers, plus top shelf spirits. service was spot on and menu choices were creative and varied. only issue, and it really needs to be addressed is, everything, and I mean everything was SALTY! real salty. crispy fingers were great but batter was salty. even the burger was over salted. chef! lock up your salt shaker! please. . . ps-this was noted by the entire party.
This was our first time at this restaurant and I wasn't expecting a lot in food preparation and quality because I heard it was known for it's bar. I was pleasantly surprised. Our server Priscilla was top notch. Will definitely return because of the food and service. The physical setup seems to cater to younger folk (21-35) with many TV screens and a large beer hall type dining room with many tables in it and without many frills but we would not let that deter us older folk from returning.
A fun pub atmosphere. The avocado egg rolls were amazing. The tuna salad was good as was the rest of the entrees our table ordered. This is a nice place to grab a bite.
Great dinner for my Daughter’s 16th birthday!
Great service for a larger party.
Nice drink selection!
Great food... hot sasauge and potatoes / ahi / fish tacos were some of the favorites
Great meal! Great service!!
Always our go to place!
The service was very good but the food, although brought to us hot, was very salty: metallic salty. We guessed that the chef smokes, which blunts tastebuds...
Service was excellent. Food was excellent. The Lobster Mac & Cheese had a just a bit of a kick to it. PERFECT.
The food was very good, nice size portions. Open floor plan with high ceiling and a elevated dj stand. My only issue is that for place called an Ale house, the beer selection was rather small.
Everything and every employee were wonderful. Enjoyed the restaurant and the food ..
Keep up the good work!!!
Very impressed with food and our waitress was great. It was her first night. Will definitely return
Found this place by accident. Overall very Good! Will definitely go back. Food and service were excellent.
Good food, sometimes the service can be a bit spotty. Good for friends get together
Good food and drinks. One recommendation is to get highchairs that don't have wheels on the bottom. Simple wooden high chairs work great!
Service was very slow. It took over an hour to get food after it was ordered.
Waitress was very nice.
Very good. Bison burger needs some work though. Wasn't the best. Lobster mac and cheese and nachos were very good
We sat and watched several tables get served before it table of 4. I paid $32 for a filet mignon, ordered medium rare, that arrived well done. We sent it back and it took another 15 minutes for a replacement, which arrived medium and nit medium rare. Asparagus was way undercooked. Compensation was dessert but that seemed trite. Ordered coffee and had to wait while sugar was located, then had to wait and ask for cream.
5 gal friends and I got together for a catch-up and casual dinner. This is a great place for that type of get-together: good atmosphere, relaxed, good food, and you can kick back and relax and just have a good time. The food was good (more vegan options would be amazing!) and the drinks were good as well. We'll definitely go back next month for dinner.
PS - was nice that the wall opened up to let in the beautiful weather - awesome ambiance!
