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.

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!

Extensive and varied fine dining menu, good food (not fabulous) but very slow service from the kitchen. 2 and 1/2 hours for app, main and dessert. Length of wait between courses was problematic, so would question going back based upon this experience.

I had the seafood special, my wife had the halibut on Monday. The fish was cooked to perfection, better than any other seafood restaurant I have been too, including the one in Cambria that everyone raves about. The service was excellent. The only complaint was the pour for a glass of wine seemed small. Will bring my own bottle next... More

I have written good reviews for this restaurant before, but this time I'm writing about the bar. Usually I come to Koberl at Blue for a special dinner moment that I want to last and last. This time I came in with my husband and daughter for a quick bite before an event at the PAC. We ate at a... More

Food was excellent! Filet mignon was perfectly cooked and chicken pasta excellent as was the sautéed sole! Great bar drinks and pot stickers were great! Service had its moments but overall would definitely eat there again!

A really nice place. We were sitting at the bar and had a good cocktail followed by a rose (awesome) suggested by our host. The food is really good although the portions could be a little bigger. The place is kind of fancy but I got no comments entering in shorts and t-shirt.
