Restaurant details
Reviewed 26 April 2017

We tried Bleu Monkey while visiting near the Syracuse University area. Parking is on near-by paid lots or on the street at meters and difficult to find. Don't let that stop you from visiting. The food was traditional with a casual twist. They offer an abbreviated lunch menu but if you prefer you can order from the dinner menu.
My table mate had a sushi dinner which came with a bowl of miso soup and a salad. He thought the sushi was good and the salad was fresh. I had a special lunch roll with eel (unagi). I thought it was good but came with a sauce on top that overpowered the flavor of the roll. I ordered a seaweed salad. It was very good with a light and slightly oil-vinegar flavor. There were lots of sesame seeds and a tiny bit of hot pepper.
They offer bento boxes, appetizers, soups and salads. Many guests were eating what appeared to be curry. Portions were typical. We had hot green tea which came in a large mug rather than a pot.
They offer indoor or outdoor tables and seating at the sushi bar. Service was attentive and prompt.

We were at a SU Football games,every rest.on the hill was full,We noticed we could get in here,We were pleasantly surprised with our meals.Great service,i guess people were just afraid to try this place,would rather stand in line in at the dome and have a beer and dog. We were seated quickly and ate and made the game in under an hour.A new twist on noodle bowls they were very good.

We travel to Syracuse often but never ate here until recently. We were more than pleasantly surprised. The fish was extremely fresh, the rolls were creative and the service was good. The bleu monkey roll in particular was fantastic.

We were about 7 for lunch on a week day.

We all went for their lunch offer that was really cheap for great portions of sushi plus either miso soup or a green salad.

The sushis were quite nice and the staff sympathetic.

A good place for sushis in Syracuse.

The sushi was adequate here; it was nothing spectacular. The green salad was fresh and well dressed. The service was attentive.
