We have been to Blue Bistro several times, and the food is consistently good. I always order the lobster tails, which are delicious. We brought family here for a birthday celebration and they enjoyed it very much as well. The real gem is their waitstaff. They are warm, friendly and attentive. On our last visit, we had the pleasure of... More

We actually had breakfast and dinner for three days and there was absolutely nothing to complain about. The food was good, the table service was excellent. Everything was clean. The whole staff was so pleasant, but the only name I can remember is a waitress named Tasha. Great job from Tasha and all of her coworkers in what seems to... More

We enjoyed our meals here. The menu has some good choices and the food is good...we especially loved the clam chowder. However, I did not approve of the child's menu. As doting grandparents we want her food to be equal or even better than ours. This was not the case. Her fish and chips came with thin, greasy fish sticks... More

Seat yourself at this amazing gem of a restaurant. Grab a window seat and enjoy a view of their historic cottages or Lake Winnipesaukee! For breakfast, kids will love the kids menu items (pancakes were a huge hit) and it's kids eat free if you're staying in the hotel! Caribbean French toast is delicious (unlike anything we've had) and the... More

Excellent food, drinks, and service. They add in the attention to detail by doing things like offering bread with a dip comprised of olive oil and parmesian and asking if you want crushed pepper on your meal if it applies. Menu is not saturated with too many options. Good views of the bay from the restaurant which is also nice... More

Blue Bistro was a pleasant surprise. After taking a bit of a ribbing from the family because it looked like an old remodeled Howard Johnson Motel and Restaurant, everyone agreed that our dinners were spectacular! Even my son in law the wine connoisseur said the wine list was pretty good. BTW the desserts are to die for, and the remark... More

I could have licked these plates clean with my tongue! Bill and I are very particular in our choices when it comes to our palates. We consider ourselves amateur culinary experts. And this by far was one of the best meals we've had. We don't usually do desert, but in this case we did. Even got 2 to go! This... More

The location, which is just above the Naswa Beach Bar, is not a place where you would expect to get a gourmet meal but that is just what you will find. Have been there several times with relatively large groups and to a person, they have raved about the food. The decor is a bit dated but service, selection and... More

Food and service was very good. Oddly you can't get a draught beer in the restaurant only in the bar downstairs. Otherwise excellent.
