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.

Arrived at 5pm. 4 booths stayed empty for an hour! Middle tables cleared and at 7:15 our waiter asked us if we would leave by 7:30... More

We stopped in with another couple to enjoy drinks before heading out for dinner down the street. The bartender was very attentive and chatted with us about the town. Just a great atmosphere and vibe. I would highly recommend!
