After 22 years in business, it’s time for a fresh look and upgrades at The Blue Star. We’re excited about where we’re going and the new Blue Star that we’ll be sharing with you in 2018. While we work on improvements and renovations, we’ll be open Tuesday-Saturday from 5pm-Close only in the Cocktail Lounge. During this time we’ll be exploring new pairings, trying new dishes, and planning for the full reopening of The Blue Star. We invite you to be apart of our transition by giving us feedback, trying our new dishes, and getting a sneak peek on social media of all the exciting changes in the works!

Had a reservation and had to wait 30 minutes beyond our reservation time. Three quarters of the entrees on the menu were unavailable and they ran out of iceberg lettuce.

I understand that they are closing but the waiter we had was definitely ill prepared for the event this evening. The waitress on the other hand was fantastic. Was not offered any of the special promotions for the evening. We love this place and this was really not how we wanted to remember it

Great place! Owners did their employees wrong by closing on such short notice. The employees shared this with us when we went for our last meal.

The food at Blue Star was excellent as usual. The calamari was sweet and soft. The pork cheeks were soft and had an wonderful flavor with the risotto. My only suggestion is to review the ever changing menu on the web before you make your reservation. Enjoy!

It was a very enjoyable evening, although it was a bit warm in the dining room...,it was well worth the drive from Denver

Blue Star is amazing! The food was very inventive! We made a reservation for one night and decided to go the following night too because we enjoyed it that much. We brought friends the second night and they really liked it too. The wait staff and owner were very friendly and attentive. They even made shrimp scampi for my husband and it wasn't on the menu. It's quiet and cute inside. Everything we ate was excellent! It's by far the best restaurant in Colorado Springs!

Disappointing menu. The menu was very limited. Most entrees included kale. Service was excellent.

Creative and uniquely delicious cuisine, locally sourced. Wine selection is awesome. Service was friendly and impeccable. We just relocated to the area and are thrilled to find this wonderful place right in our neighborhood!

A huge disappointment. My wife and I were visiting from Denver and saw this as one of the top rated places in Colorado Springs. I have a hard time coming up with positives. The waiter seemed confused and shut down - we actually had the hostess come over a few times and check on us. Wine list was not well explained or thought out. The menu was just strange - a large assortment with no common theme, other than none of it was particularly appealing. It was pretty expensive, but nothing crazy. I 100% will not go back or recommend. Get it together Colorado Springs!
