Food was fantastic and kids are well catered for. The only thing that let it down a bit was that service was a bit slow. We got our starters quickly but then had a long wait until our mains came which, when you have two small kids (5 and 2yrs), is a bit of a nightmare. Overall, we had a lovely lunch and would definitely return

Hadn't been to Blue in quite a while and wanted somewhere familiar for a post-exam night out with my wife. The food and service as always were top notch and when we asked to share a dessert, they actually split it on to two separate plates which was a nice touch.

Went here on a recommendations from a few friends. We drove over from south county Dublin and booked ahead just in case. Got a seat promptly. We ordered our meals together with drinks. Two other couples arrived 10 mins after us ordered their meals ,we were still waiting on our drinks. Their food came next ours arrived a good 10mins after.I asked about our drinks only to wait another 10 mins I was nearly finished my dinner at this stage. I asked for my daughter's drink when ours arrived she said she'd go get it. We all finished our meals at this stage and still never received her drink.We waited to pay bill but nobody came to table .Went up to desk myself and asked for bill. The place was not at all busy.I thought the service was very slow. Food was excellent. I've worked as a server before and I just think a little bit more attention should be used in a place like this.

Wings were great but we all ordered burgers for our main meal and they were all luke warm/cold. One person sent theirs back however the meal took so long to come out that people just tried to put up with it and ate some of it. No charge for the burger sent back and a drink given to apologise.
Not up to their usual Blue standards. Bit disappointing.

Blue is cozy and the food is good, maybe slightly over priced. Views and ambience are always great, although the service can be a bit hit and miss. They will do a candle and song for birthdays, which was nice.

Food excellent. Wait staff were flawless. For a casual lunch, it's hard to top. Floor space was a little tight, but the seating space was very generous. The chicken wings were as ever singular in their flavour, and the ribs were plentiful and delicious. Can't wait to do it all again.

I have been to the Blue Bar on 2 occasions recently. The first time we were sitting in the bar area in a booth, and loved the experience. The 2nd time we were sitting in the small room off the bar, and the table and chairs were very uncomfortable, When eating here - ensure you sit in the bar area. Food was fab on both occasions.
