How rare...I have been eating at the Blue Star since it opened and have always had a first rate experience on every level.
The Blue Star and Marigold's are the two best places to eat in the City...just considerably better than any similarly priced places.
Importantly, the volume is high enough that the foot is always fresh...I am actually pretty stunned by the bad review. Maybe the hubby is allergic to sea bass.
My husband and I had been to blue star a handful of times since moving to the springs about a year ago. Friends of ours had talked it up and we really had seen nothing like it in Colorado Springs.
We were excited to bring my inlaws there when they came to visit for the first time. Everything seemed as usual when we first arrived, we had a table in the lounge area.
Things started going down hill when we got the appetizers. The cheese and meat plate only had one triangle of cheese and was nothing like I remember it being the last time we had ordered it. When one of our several waitresses (sounds nice until they repeat themselves and it becomes unorganized) came to clear our appetizer plates she rubbed the edge of a messy plate against my brother in laws sleeve leaving a sticky mess. We brushed that off pretty quickly though, especially after putting club soda on the spot...
Next thing I know my mother in law is sitting with her main course (salmon) in front of her and she's not touching it, I look at it and there are hairs under the salmon on her plate. When she told the waitress, the waitress offered to get her a new dinner and she comped the meal, but it just wasn't right that after the second mishap from the staff we didn't get a visit from the manager or any kind of sincere apology.
Worst part is next.... My husband woke up with TERRIBLE food poisoning the next day. He had the sea bass and no one else tried his dish. It was a violent case making for a not so great trip for his family. My husband was cooped up in our hotel in Denver all day Saturday and missed an excellent dinner in Boulder.
We are very disappointed in what a scam we fell for, this restaurant poses to be fine dining when really they are unorganized, unsanitary and unprofessional. We will not to recommending this restaurant to anyone in the future and will stay far away from it ourselves!
HI, I LIVE IN MEXICO, BUT I TRAVEL TO COLORADO FRECUELTLY I WOULD LIKE WATCH ITEMS LIST WHICH YOU HAVE ON SALE FOR CHOSE AND BUY WHEN I GO TO COLORADO, THANK YOU SO MUCH ,
This place is awful! Awful food, service, and the prices are way to high in comparision to the food portions. I ordered the fried catfish and shrimp I got half a piece of soggy catfish and six shrimp that were extremely overcooked. My fiance ordered the boudin link w/ french fries his food was cold The waiter had an attitude when my fiance told him his link was cold The waiter took the link back to the kitchen then emerged back to our table 15 minutes later with the same old link. I asked the waiter did hush puppies come with my meal he shrugged his shoulders then came back to our table with a small bowl full of cold hush puppies by this time we were so over the whole nawlins experience and asked to speak with a manager. We were told there wasn't a manager and there was no one we could speak with concerning the poor service we received, really! We were laughed at by the staff and treated as though we'd done something wrong. Bottom line I will NEVER patrionize this establishment again!
But the place is disorganized...
Eggs Benedict Tuscan style. Delicious!
