Incredible food. Generous pairings. Lovely atmosphere. Great service. No cheap, but well worth the experience. Do not miss it.

This was one of the best meals I've ever had. We ordered the 5 course tasting menu- the dishes were original and utterly delicious, and Immaculately presented. Service was excellent too. Portions are very small though - we were eating late and hadn't had lunch, so could have done with some more.

Well, I like to describe places like this as fancy new American. Multiple courses, big plates, smallish portions, and a big open kitchen. However, even though it sounds pretentious, it was an amazing experience. We came here for a co-workers birthday, and the first thing we saw on the printed menu was happy birthday "name". They printed custom menus for... More

I have been to this restaurant 3 times and never been disappointed. I usually order the fish which is excellent. I ordered the arctic char which is not one of my favorite fish but it was delicious. The foie gras appetizer was great and the mouse bouche is always great. This is without a doubt one of the best meals... More

Went to Bluestem to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The ambiance is nice, very relaxed, dimmed lights, open chef's kitchen, the service was impeccable, i lost count how many people stopped by to service food, drinks, change plates and silverware etc - but very discretely and respectfully. So service if perfect, but the place is small, and you are cramped, sitting... More

From my Pear Milk Punch cocktail to the very last detail, a tiny square of jellied fruit, this was a perfect meal. We opted for the three course menu, sans wine pairings, and each of us chose different selections. Everything was exceptional. The chef's amuse bouche platter was so fun and memorable! I had the foie gras first course (amazing),... More

First let me say the service was top notch - attentive, but casual and not overdone. The combinations in the 5 course tasting menu were interesting and overall delicious. We were most disappointed in the ribeye - which was tough and not very tasty (it was cooked medium-rare, not sure how it could be so tough). We were also disappointed... More
