Enjoyed the food immensely and the service was top notch. The pork chops were especially tasty. The server was knowledgeable and attentive.

The atmosphere of this place is amazing, the staff is phenomenal, and the food was very good. Our waitress (Ashley) has got to be hands down, the best server on the Central Coast (and to top it off she's a sommelier as well!). Her command of the menu was top notch, her personality and attentiveness were without equal and she... More

3.5 stars We are from out of town and come regularly to SLO - and have eaten here several times, and enjoyed both the ambience, service, and food. (We do not drink-except for coffee/water.) We came again on a recent visit - and our food was barely OK and our others were also OK - but none exceptional! and our... More

We love Koberl at Blue, or Blue for short. We eat in the dining room when we want a special experience but often just order from the menu in the bar. The room itself is has so much atmosphere with its beautiful paneling, ceiling, mirrors and windows. The bar menu is fun and imaginative and you can make an evening... More

This was my second time eating at Koberl at Blue, and the strip steak was exceptional! I only get to SLO once or twice a year, but this is the only place I'll visit for dinner.

Nice building, classy interior , lovely wooden panelling & ceilings and very original wine fridge !! Personal service in the bar area. Great tasting wines & the food was succulent & nicely presented. Not cheap but worth its price . I would recommend it, but not for fast food !

Recently my wife and I spent a night in SLO. For our dinner we chose Koberl at Blue. Very glad we did. Sometimes I go to a restaurant and I don't know what to order. At Koberl there were more than 10 different dishes that I would have liked to try. Finally I settled for two appetizers. The Ahi Tartare... More

Visited for dinner as was passing through SLO. Had high hopes based on the TA reviews and the fact that the restaurant was quite full. Sadly, the reality of the meal was disappointing. We had the cheese platter, vege wraps, ahi and the linguine. Cheese board was ok (they didn't make it, so I guess it was safe). The vege... More

We enjoyed a bottle of wine at the Bar, had great service and enjoyed the mood, really looked forward to dinner, which started off nice, but as dinner moved on our server must have gotten very busy with other tables, because we saw less and less of her until I finally had to ask if she forgot us, we waited...

Blue is a very special place, with an interesting menu and vibe. My husband loved loved loved the buffalo short ribs special, I was crazy for the crab cakes, and first we shared a starter of calamari with a delicious dipping sauce. When we ran short on the sauce our nice waiter zoomed off to find us more. Great service!... More
