My grandparents took us out and we were so excited for a nice dinner. We ordered oysters and then oyster Rockefeller before the entrees were to arrive for our party of 5. They took a bit longer than we expected and when we tried to ask why, the lady just completely ignored us and acted if we were inconveniencing her.... More

Every time I go to Koberl at Blue it is so amazing that I feel like I have to tell everyone I know. So, here I am again. We celebrated an "early Christmas Eve" dinner with our daughters at Koberl at Blue last Thursday. The week had been quite hectic, so we were hoping for a wonderful dinner celebration. Blue... More

This restaurant sits right on the busy Monterey St. corner, with a view of the majestic old Fremont Theater and the Courthouse and Court St. Enter the historic J.P. Andrews building and you're in the middle of a busy, happy bar scene with lots of locals visiting and comparing notes. Even if you're alone, you'll feel welcome. The bar is... More

We were looking for a mellow yet refined option for post classical concert girlfriends hang out time, and this was perfect and very enjoyable for us. The place was just enough busy for a Saturday evening (it was post Cal Poly finals week, so that perhaps helped). We chose to sit at the bar, where bartender was helpful on drink... More

Stopped in on a Sunday night to have a glass of wine and a light dinner. In the past, we have found Blu to serve good food. There was a noticeable decline. We ordered fried calamari for our appetizer. It arrived undercooked and unappetizing. Clearly, it had come out of a big bag of frozen calamari and was under fried.... More

This place was highly recommended by locals and it didn't disappoint. The beer, wine and cocktail list is excellent. The service is great. We started eating off the appetizer list with our beer and cocktails and we never left that list. The shrimp, scallops, bruschetta and flatbread were all excellent. We will go back to try several dishes that caught... More

Not the best. The food was overpriced for the taste. The cushion was so ripped that I to put my napkin over it so it would not snag my clothes. The waitress saw that but never offered me another napkin. I finally used the one off of another table, although there were three waitress stationed near our table. Our bill... More

Wine and beer selection was noteworthy and led to a local pinot noir that led to a trip to the winery. I had the seared sea scallops and a NY Strip steak and both were tasty. I ate at the bar and found the service top notch. This will be my go-to restaurant when visiting San Luis Obispo.
