This past weekend (February, 2017) 17 of us, family members and friends, descended on Koberl at Blue (with advance notice) to celebrate the 70th birthday of my husband. The event was handled expertly and smoothly by the restaurant staff and we all enjoyed a very memorable meal. We were allotted just the right number of servers to keep the flow... More

When a restaurant can maintain its standards for a party of 17, you know that it will be great for smaller parties. 17 of us (family and friends), converged on SLO for my birthday weekend, and ate my "birthday dinner" at Koberl at Blue. Based on previous calls, we were seated at two adjacent tables in an area in the... More

We came for the ambiance and also because the website had an healthy vegetarian menu (which was not advertised but visible once you clicked a tab on dinner menu. I was a bit leery by the #26 rating on TripAdvisor. Well, we were amazed by this combination of elegant ambiance in a brick, impeccably maintained 1890's dining room. Outstanding wine... More

Outstanding service, great seafood grill special, fabulous pot stickers, but the worst Caesar salad ever. The Caesar salad was most white and yellow with very little greens, when I complained he said that's they way they make it. YUCK! They need to go back to salad school.

This time, I would like to mention the servers. My husband and I had dinner at Koberl this past Friday night. As we were enjoying the great food and conversation,... More

This is one of our favorite places for special celebrations. We have eaten here several times in the past year and have never been disappointed. The atmosphere is comfortable, yet romantic and tastefully decorated. A few of our favorites from the menu are the poached beet and goat cheese salad, the pan roasted chicken with risotto it is excellent, the... More

Atmosphere was typical; selections were OK. Prices are "upscale" but service was quite disappointing. We were seated; ordered a few drinks and appetizers; our entree didn't arrive until the restaurant was almost empty and closing!! (Everyone else had received their meals except us!!) When we inquired, waitress stated it would be coming out shortly several times! The shortly turned into... More

Ate in the bar, nice service, knowledgeable waiter. Wife had something seafood and forgettable and a beet salad which was good. I ordered the Kobe beef burger with fries and it was real good and filling. Unfortunately we didn't really scratch the surface of their fine menu. This would be a good place to go to eat in their dining... More

This is an old bank building that is located near the library and courthouse and its seems to draw the downtown business and legal profession for their large bar and separated dinning room. the dining room has a long banquet along one wall which works well for couples sitting together or four tops. The dining room is separated from the... More

The best fine dining restaurant in SLO. Great bar for appetizers and drinks. The menu at Blue is incredible and always changing. They have a good wine selection, but their food is what keeps me coming back. Service is always wonderful.
