Our meal was delicious! My husband and I were celebrating his birthday with a special dinner and we were not disappointed ! We both had the 6oz beef filets and they were prepared exactly as we ordered! Our sides were fried Brussels and roasted mushrooms and we started with a lettuce wedge! Ended up the meal sharing an apple crème brûlée! Our waiter was the only one there when we sat down so he was a little slower than normal but understandable. He was very helpful with suggestions on what to order! The atmosphere is actually casual to formal ( if you wanted it ) and the noise level was very low! We will definitely go again!!

My husband and I had a wonderful brunch at True Blue on Saturday 10/9/21. I ordered the steak frites and my husband had the frittata. Both were delicious! Eva was our server. She was attentive and pleasant. Highly recommend this great restaurant!

I hate to complain but I shouldn’t have to send a $70 steak back to the kitchen. I ordered a medium steak that was served rare (blue). I sent it bake and it was returned medium well and tough.

This was supposed to be a 35 day, dry aged Kansas City strip and it was tough. Also didn’t at all like the spice they put on the steak. Tasted like a Mediterranean spice that I did not have a taste for.

The server (bartender) was super nice and did a really florets job but the steak was too horrible to ignore.

Sorry.

We had dinner at True Blue after a long day. We have made a reservation in advance and our table was ready! A wonderful hostess greeted us. I tried the crab cake and this was a perfect crab cake for me. It had mostly crab meat and a thin crust on top with just the right amount of tasty sauce on the side. The salad was fresh and crispy. What a wonderful dish!

Known for its beef, the hamburger was excellent on a brioche bun. The frites were very crispy - the way I love them. The street tacos were okay - the taco had been warmed but the beef mixture was unremarkable. The black bean soup was almost room temperature. Our server Andrew was attentive and very personable.

My husband and I tried True Blue for the first time as a new place to try for his birthday. It was so sweet of the staff to sign a menu with birthday wishes for him. We enjoyed the decor. Being a visual person, I had a completely different idea of how a butcher shop and restaurant could be combined into one place. What a pleasant surprise! Our server, Tyler was attentive and pleasant. Our steaks were phenomenal. Dessert was equally divine.
We will be return customers.

The inside space is too small for a saxophone.

Then we were seated at a table for 4 when a quieter table for 2 was vacant. Our table was next to a birthday party with about 12, loud young women!! Waiter seated 4 people in the same area and they asked the waiter if they could be moved outside.😬 It would have been quieter in the bar!!!!

They were ready for us when we got there for our reservation. It was our 1st time there. People had previously told us they are expensive and it was a lot more expensive than we thought it would be. They did not offer many items on their menu for smaller cuts of steak or any steak tips options. What we did choose for dinner was very good. Excellently cooked and done in a timely manner. The only annoying problem that restaurant had was there were little black knats that we had to swat while we ate so they would not land on our food.

It was the perfect fall day and we made reservations for outside. Very pleasant and our server was a doll. The food was excellent, my friend had an omelette and I had eggs benedict on crab cakes. I've been a customer since the first week BBAT opened and it remains my favorite place to dine. Absolutely the best crab cakes in town. The restaurant was packed so best to make reservations. You'll love everything about BBAT.

The service and food was outstanding. Probably should add some tint or other window coverings above the front door entrance. We were eating around 7:00 pm and the sunlight was in my parents eyes pretty bad. Everything else was awesome.

I brought my wife here for a date night! The facility was very nice and the service was great! The prices are higher than they should be but the food was good. Their drink menu is really good. The steak I had was delicious but not worth $45. I’d charge $25 for the meal I had. I’d recommend eating here for a special occasion. Thank you!
