Worst Thanksgiving meal ever. I think the turkey was canned. Definitely not fresh. Beef tenderloin had no taste. Bread was dry. So disappointed.

Steaks were amazingly good. Wine list is not huge but is remarkably comprehensive. Service is friendly and professional. Slick outdoor dining ambience with lots of fire to warm you on a cool night. My wife and I were impressed with the whole experience. Recommended!

So yes, post farmer's market we dropped into Blush for some delicious flatbread and a couple of glasses of wine. Great friendly service and the flatbread(s) were a meal in themselves. We'll come back and have dinner some evening. Good spot!

Blush not only has wonderful wines and interesting appetizers (try the lobster mac & cheese) but the outside lounge area with comfortable couches and adequate tables to place food and beverages, and most importantly, the beautiful fire pits which illuminate at dusk creating further fodder for conversation, all combine to create a unique and memorable experience. Lovely and helpful staff... More

Eight of us arrived for dinner as part of a business trip. We anticipated a very crowed restaurant as reservations were hard to come by, but essentially it was us and a couple other tables. The food was very good. Filet VERY tender, steak bites, cheese board everything we ordered was very good except for the Jerk Chicken. Two of... More

Stopped by for drink in afternoon before dinner. Nice place to sit outside. There is a live band in the back of the outside patio. Didn't have any food so can't rate.

Select a seat outside for ambiance and better acoustics. We ordered squash risotto (tasty but rice over cooked), crab cakes (2 amazing), and steak bites (good). Servers were attentive and friendly.
