If you want a fun place, great cuts of meat and fish, and an excellent wine list and custom drink menu, this is the place. A little pricey but worth the money if you are making memories as I was!

the food was great. but overpriced. my ribeye was delicious but $62 seems excessive. bread and butter not complimentary? $8??
we were surprised to see that there was no option to get smaller steak cuts. they were all 14oz and above. i would’ve loved an 8-10 ounce option. most notable: i finished before my husband. my plate was removed and my leftover box brought before he finished. then while he was still eating we were asked if we’d like dessert, and if she could get us anything else. he was still eating! talk about feeling rushed…. overall, for the high prices, we expected more in the way of steak size options and definitely in the service.

Waiter started attentive and then disappeared. He recommended the special which was very disappointing, but he never came back to ask how I liked it, even when he dropped the check off. Very noisy, as in hard to hear conversation across the table. Meat very disappointing for a 'butcher' restaurant. Oddly, the sides were much better than the meat. Fried brussels, mushrooms and scallion pancakes were amazing. Might be willing to try again, but given the check for two people with dinner and two local beers was $176, probably won't.

I am always happy with the quality of the food and of the service. If I have a complaint it is that it gets very noisy when the restaurant is full, which is commonly the case.

Everything was great! They even printed a menu with "Happy Anniversary" on the top and staff's signatures for us, really cute. We ordered the scallops for appetizer, steak & frites, and roasted mushrooms. Everything was delicious, and the rare steaks were prepared to perfection. The service was very professional and friendly as well. You've got to try this place!

We eat at True Blue quite often. The food and service are always outstanding. On this occasion, my husband and I met up with some family from out of town for Sunday Brunch. Everyone ordered something different from the menu, along with flights of mimosas (terrific value!), and delicious Bloody Mary’s. Every plate was practically licked clean! I do have two suggestions that would have made our experience perfect. The jazz music was wonderful, but a bit loud for conversations with others at our table. Also, my blue crab omelette had almost no crab meat in it. Everything else was delightful. If you’re going anytime on the weekends, be sure to book well in advance. This place is popular!

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!!

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.
