I was looking for a good place to enjoy dinner and found the perfect place for the evening. Delicious appetizer of Crispy Calamari With Fried Olives And Peppadew Peppers and for my main course the duo of wild boar. This dish was the star of the evening. Delicious and oh so flavor rich. It is the Signature plate so a must try. All this was follow by Cake Di Chocolate. Excellent wine selection and outstanding service to close the evening.

Visited Blue during a business dinner. The service was very attentive, the ambiance was very nice. There was a nice selection of Mediterranean inspired food nicely executed. We had the Mediterranean appetizer plater, I had the Mixed Greens salad, the Foie Grass app, and shared the sticky toffee pudding, and the pumpkin bread pudding for desserts and both were delicious. The Cucumber basil cocktail was delicious! I would recommend this place.

Blue has excellent food coupled with a classy atmosphere and great servers! Get the Arrancini (Risotto balls stuffed with pancetta, sweet onions and mozzarella fried crispy and served with a rich tomato sauce), which is one of the best appetizers I've ever had, sooo yummy! Blue also has my favorite dessert, sticky toffee pudding, which is less common in the U.S., which made me very happy. Highly recommend if you like Mediterranean and you're in Charlotte!

What is "Southern Champagne"? It is enjoying what must be the most expensive dining, atmosphere and service that is usually found in Los Vegas right here in Downtown Charlotte, NC. And it doesn't have to break you pocketbook unless you want it to. I've dined in the beautiful dinning room and just relaxed, listening to the best live Jazz performances in their lounge.....and I have never been disappointed. The staff, owner and sometimes the chef, are always glad to greet you and do what ever they can to please.
Don't wait for a special occasion.......give it a try anytime. You will be pleased, I was!
