Yet another satisfactory meal at Bluestem! I ordered the duck confirm salad, almost always, and suggested my friend order the lamb leg sandwich which looked great. Service was quick!

Great experience. Only one MAJOR issue: these guys serve a homogenized cold red beet gazpacho and call is Borscht. Bad move to appeal to anyone who has ever been exposed to a authentic Russian cuisine. Please send your chef to Katia’s Tea Room for an internship. :))

Met friends here from out of town for brunch. Every dish was quite good and everyone was pleased with their selection. Arrived early and had some drinks at the bar.... Very attentive bartender who took time to answer question about the brunch menu. Excellent experience and very good eats. Attentive wait staff who easily assisted with one of our party with food allergies. Very good experience....tasty food.

Hip, sleek, modern décor yet comfortable.
The trout tartar was out of this world!

I liked it a lot. The pork chop was outstanding. I thought the steak prices were out of line. I would pay the price but only where it is their specialty. I will definitely be back and give a recommendation

We went here on the recommendation of the front desk person at our hotel, and we had a wonderful lunch. We liked it so much that we came back for dinner the same day! For lunch we had a seat overlooking the courtyard outside, and it was great people watching. Very friendly staff. Dinner went a bit faster than we might have preferred, but looking back we probably could have slowed things down a bit if we had said something. We have already recommended it to friends, and we plan a return visit on our next trip to San Fran.

I ordered the chef’s vegetable selection. YUCK. $25 and I took two bites. Dessert was solid though. Skip the veggies and get dessert.
