    This was my first time dining at Blue’s Egg. The food was great as well as the waitress Victoria. The portion size was really good, larger than I expected. They also played good music, which really set a nice lunchtime tone.

    We were seated in the front part of the restaurant. Very crowded with tables so close together. The diners next to us were almost touching us. Unsettling, especially considering Covid. It was very loud, basically unable to carry on a conversation.

    Blue's Egg needs clearly state on their website that there is a time limit to how long people can stay in their restaurant. I was there for brunch with a friend that I haven't seen in a while and we were catching up. The manager asked us to leave because we stayed longer then the allotted time. If they had clearly stated that there was a time limit on their tables when I made the reservation I would have picked a different establishment.

    The only thing I would comment on, and I understand they have to keep track of their open tables, but one of the hostesses would come into the back room where we were and stand quite close to our table with a tablet and we felt like she was hovering and made us feel like we needed to rush and get up from our table. Maybe stand back in that little kitchenette area where the diners can’t see you. That was just a little annoying but nothing that would stop us from going back everything else was great.

    I have been looking forward to going to Blue’s Egg for a long time. I must say my husband and I were disappointed. We had the eggs Benedict but it had little to no taste. There was virtually almost no hollandaise sauce on the eggs. Just a lot of paprika. The hash browns were good as were the drinks but very disappointed in the eggs Benedict.

    The restaurant was relatively empty at this time of day, however, we seemed to be all crammed into one end of the second dining room with little elbow room. It would have been a good time to social distance, since the front dining room was almost empty.

    Blue's Egg is one of the best breakfast/brunch places in the Milwaukee area. This is not the usual omelet and pancake joint. If you are looking for creative and delicious breakfast meals and cocktails, Blue's Egg is your go to.

    Our server was a step off from what I'm used to at Blue's.. when we ordered, I also ordered a beermosa that didn't come out until I asked for it again, which was well over 15 minutes. One out of the four meals didn't come out til we were half done with our other meals. Server was friendly but maybe she was new. Little things like bringing the butter, jam and grapes out before the meal as all other servers have done, wasn't done. Our server also didn't clear plates from the monkey bread, and other staff did so after noticing them sitting there until after the main food arriced. Food was good as usual!

    It cannot be overstated how much I enjoy dining at Blue's Egg! On this business trip I was only in town for three mornings and I ate there 2 times. The service is great and the food speaks for itself. All you need to do is show and and watch the number of people that will eat there on a Wednesday morning to get an idea of weekend crowds. Love this place and I cannot wait for the next time I go.

    Good food, but portions much smaller than in the past. That would be fine, but prices were also up. Our waiter was outstanding, but the hostess rude. (We were 5 min late and were told that our reservation was "almost given away." Rather humorous, since it was 1:20 , and there were few diners. The lunch was good, but not great; the peach bellini not so! Patio is closed. All in all, disappointing.

    Had a reservation an were seated in the “back room”. I think it should be updated. It is still pretty dark and very noisy. My fault since I didn’t request the front dining room. Disappointed that the menu didn’t contain any entrees with mushrooms. I ordered Florentine Benedict and it was barely warm. The tempid eggs and spinach were not very appealing. Our waitress Kate was special and the hostess did her very best to accommodate our seating arrangement. We were entertaining guests who are very use to fine dining so I chose Blue’s Egg and they appeared very happy with the meal

    The staff was unwelcoming. We had a party of 4, two of us ran late..yes our fault so not an issue they wouldnt seat us but then when we all arrived we were helped and asked to wait to be seated. We happily complied with their inability to sit us until our full party arrived with no ill comments. While waiting to be seated (once all 4 of us arrived) one member of our party went to the restroom and the workers rudely spoke about where the other member was like we were not a full party again. The tone of voice used and attitude given, was not appreciated. On the brighter side, our waiter was kind and friendly and seemed to be giving his best. The food and lattes were also delicious. Overall, id recommend this restaurant but would caution the possibility of staff not being the most friendly. As someone whos worked in customer service, I understand it can be difficult but good service is what really makes me want to go back somewhere.
