Brunch at Blue Hour is delicious!
Portland Dining Month menu was spectacular. We have been to several so far (had planned to visit more, but this was probably the last one for a while) and Bluehour was the best. The carrot soup was lovely, although it was not hot. That was the only complaint I had, though. The salads looked fabulous, although we did not have one. The gnocchi was so good I almost wished I had ordered it after tasting my husband's, even though cassoulet is one of my favorite things (also great). Husband loved his dessert of chocolate and peanut butter, a combo I don't care for. I had the blackberry sorbet, and it was very, very tasty. Stayed in the bar after to listen to the live jazz, which was great. I felt good about going because we had gotten an email that they had not only sanitized everything but were continually doing so throughout the evening, but had also moved their tables further away from each other for social distancing.
Thank you for the lovely evening. We enjoyed it all particularly the quiet peaceful ambiance
This place would be great for any special occasion. And since the prices are so reasonable, any given Tuesday could be a special occasion.
This place has everything...great service, great food, great ambiance! I can't wait to bring my husband next time.
One meal was quite excellent the other was quite the opposite... Service was fine although we where never asked if we liked the food. Would not recommend nor go back
The service was excellent. The food average. Not something we couldn’t do for ourselves.
Excellent vegetarian option for Portland Dining Month. The staff was cordial and attentive and my dinner partner and I had a truly stellar time.
Our server Kim was awesome! She was incredible and she made our special night even more special. I posted that the noise level was moderate because it was Jazz night on the 29th of February. But that wasnt a negative thing.
Kim our server was a delight she made everything easy easy easy. The hostess was extraordinarily friendsky and helpful in getting us a table with a view of the jazz band which was our main reason for visiting. Vegan dinner was excellent. Thank you!
1st- Food temperature was on the cold side... last I checked steak is not supposed to be cold... 2nd- some of the food was overly salted... 3rd- Service was ridiculously slow. 4th- in my opinion if a hostess or a server removes a drink from your table it would be common sense to ask if you would like another drink as we just started with our main course and now I was left with nothing to drink (happened two separate occasions !!!!strange!!!!)
I eat out three or four times a week at higher-end restaurants I am sad to say I would not recommend Bluehour. I do not know what happen within the last year as Bluehour was decent in the past... don’t waste your money & time
Outstanding service. Celebrated birthday and they prepared to have candle, and were there at every minute needed. Delicious menu. Thank you.
Bluehour has been one of our favorites for years, but our experience last night was extremely disappointing. The host was wonderful, and Grayson, our server, was very attentive and accommodating, but the food was lackluster and mediocre at best. The gnocchi was mushy and the beets in the beet salad were much too hard. The radicchio salad was acceptable, as were the oysters, but for one of the top restaurants in Portland, it was not worth the premium - at least not last night.
Really inventive, delicious food, plated well. Our waiter was outstanding, friendly and helpful, but not a hoverer. The ambiance was like a private club. Excellent value!!!
Gorgeous restaurant with live music. Delicious meal with excellent service.
we waited a very long time for our food and when it arrived the eggs benedict were lukewarm
Music was great and good food
