Prior to going to the symphony last night, chose the Blue Restaurant for dinner. Glad we did! Our server was excellent, friendly, and attentive. We had the tenderloin and the duck bolognese. Both dishes were superb! Don't hesitate to try this restaurant!

The food is flavorful, drinks are tasty and the jazz soulful! Love the calamari, scallops, wild boar and be sure to finish it off with the homemade gelato! Service is usually top notch as well. After dinner you can move up front to the bar...More

Blue is an outstanding high end restaurant. The food is amazing and the staff is friendly and very accommodating if you are attending a show nearby. The sea bass is my favorite item on the menu.
