“Pleasant meal, live music”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

We ate dinner here on the veranda while staying at the Tallman Hotel and were lucky enough to hit a night with live music in the courtyard. The Caesar salad was just average, but at least included anchovies. The sea bass and rib eye were both fine. Good beer and wine selection. Service was pleasant and professional.

“Decent food but terrible service ”
Reviewed 5 July 2014 via mobile

We went to Blue Wing for dinner after reading the rave reviews. The ambience was nice and the food was decent but the service was so terrible, that all the rest didn't matter. There was one waitress for all 12 tables. She took a half hour to even come take the order, then another hour to bring us food. She brought one drink and forgot the other and served our food to a different table. We had an infant, so we didn't really have the luxury to sit there for hours. People at other tables were annoyed too and they ended up taking their check to the bar to pay and leave. We won't go back.

“The place in Upper Lake to enjoy a drink or a meal”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

My husband and I visited the Blue Wing on a Monday night, which is when they have live, blues music. The band plays inside near the bar area. We opted to sit in the outdoor garden where we could enjoy both the cool, evening breeze and the music. Service was prompt, but not hurried. This is a place to relax, enjoy the surroundings, and those with whom you're sharing the evening. We hope to be back soon, because we understand the Ciabatta Burger is very good.
