    Definitely go to dinner at the Blue Door. David Chin, the chef, has obviously worked with the owner at hitting the mark in all ways. The dishes are incredibly well thought out, beautifully assembled, and integrated. The service is wonderful, and the overall atmosphere is quiet and welcoming. Regarding the meal, the short rib "small bite" dish comprised one delicious rib, a small polenta cake, and a wonderful apple compote. Scallop lovers in our party appreciated the sear on the scallops, and the "large plate" sea bass was maybe the star of the evening. It was perfectly cooked and browned; placed on surprisingly sweet and tasty French lentils. Yum! And all five of us agreed the peanut sauce under the Asian-style dumplings was fantastic. Finally, desserts: The chocolate souffle was heavenly, and the citron tart was wonderfully lemony. It was beautifully garnished with whipped cream and varied citrus slices. The only small flaw in the entire dinner may have been that the pate sucre on the tart was not browned. But the dessert was still delicious. In addition, drinks are varied and well chosen. Examples are a true German Riesling, a local draft Lock 15 Grandfather lager, refreshing filtered table water, and nice cocktails, teas, and coffees. Service with server Michael was stellar. He was attentive but not intrusive, pleasantly friendly, and knew the menu thoroughly. The detailed information he provided helped us decide what and when to order. Both Michael and staffer Lily also did a great job removing plates and keeping water glasses filled. Ordering: So that too much food didn't appear at once, our group found it best to first order drinks and a few small plates to share. That allowed us to enjoy dishes at leisure, and order at our own pace. Our party continued to share larger plates and even dessert. For us, that was perfect. Don't miss this place. It is firing on all cylinders. A great choice for fine casual dining for any time or occasion.

    We had two pasta dishes and Smash Burger. Pasta homemade and perfect texture, delicious. I was craving a burger and it didn't disappoint. Love that they have local breweries on tap. Cocktails great love the large cubes. And chocolate soufflé for dessert, absolutely phenomenal. Great Mothers day dinner.

    What a great place. We were seated immediately at the time of our reservation. The food and service was just stellar. Possibly the best smash burger I've ever had. I would highly recommend this spot

    Wow! What a great find. We sat at the bar and enjoyed our conversation with bartender Michael (who mixes awesome cocktails) as well as owners Michael and Jen. The charcuterie board was recommended so we ordered and were not disappointed. Three meats, 3 cheeses with various accompaniments. Micheal and Jen are very proud of their purveyors as well they should be. A must have for sure and very well explained when presented by our server. The scallops were done perfectly. Next time, which will be soon, we will try the bolognese dish if still on the menu as it changes regularly. Cheers and see you soon.

    Small but delicious menu. The dumplings were perfectly cooked with a delicious sauce. The burrata was fresh with ripe melon and an interesting smoked prosciutto. Would highly recommend.

    Staff were welcoming and very kind. Parking was easy and restaurant wasn't too crowded, likely to it being a Thursday evening. Food menu was short, with a few items out due to some delivery obstacles (weather related). Entrees were overpriced, however.

    Food was very good. Prices have been lowered and are reasonable. We ate on the patio. It was cool. Some outdoor heaters would maximize use of the patio for 6 months.

    We enjoyed our meals at the blue door café but this was overshadowed by the owner taking time to speak with the white guests right next to us and behind us and did not take a minute to greet us or ask us if we enjoyed our meal. Being one of the few people of color at the restaurant, we felt ignored and invisible. We would have liked for the owner to acknowledge us like he did the white guests seated in our vicinity.
