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

Despite the noise, we had a lovely dinner. The service is attentive and knowledgeable. My husband and friend had appetizers instead of a main course. The scallop, oysters Rockefeller and shrimp appetizers were all beautifully prepared and delicious. The vegetarian menu is amazing. There are so many wonderful choices. This is our 3rd visit and will not be our last.

Once again we were not disappointed! Excellent dinner, excellent service and excellent venue! Love, love, love Blue. We don't get in nearly enough, but when we do it is always outstanding. Husband always has the Duck and this time I had Salmon. Perfection. We shared a lovely little bottle of Tolosa Cabernet and also a pre dinner special. Erich and... More

Once again they proved to be top notch. From the moment I called for a reservation to the arrival welcome, seating, food and service -... More

This past weekend (February, 2017) 17 of us, family members and friends, descended on Koberl at Blue (with advance notice) to celebrate the 70th birthday of my husband. The event was handled expertly and smoothly by the restaurant staff and we all enjoyed a very memorable meal. We were allotted just the right number of servers to keep the flow... More

When a restaurant can maintain its standards for a party of 17, you know that it will be great for smaller parties. 17 of us (family and friends), converged on SLO for my birthday weekend, and ate my "birthday dinner" at Koberl at Blue. Based on previous calls, we were seated at two adjacent tables in an area in the... More

We came for the ambiance and also because the website had an healthy vegetarian menu (which was not advertised but visible once you clicked a tab on dinner menu. I was a bit leery by the #26 rating on TripAdvisor. Well, we were amazed by this combination of elegant ambiance in a brick, impeccably maintained 1890's dining room. Outstanding wine... More
