Newest Review: ... when I heard a snarling noise behind me. A bouncer, his face twisted with aggression, snapped, "no trainies!". Although we were two smartly-dressed couples (in our thirties), I had made the "mistake" of wearing some walking shoes. I explained we had a table booked for dinner, but the bouncer just snarled, "c'mere, or I'll lash you out!". A check at the ... more

I had an extremely unpleasant and downright frightening experience at the Blue Bar and Grill. My friend had booked a table for Sunday night, and my partner and I went along with my friend and his wife. I knew the Blue Bar by reputation and was looking forward to dinner. We were approaching the stairs to the restaurant when I heard a snarling noise behind me. A bouncer, his face twisted with aggression, snapped, "no trainies!". Although we were two smartly-dressed couples (in our thirties), I had made the "mistake" of wearing some walking shoes. I explained we had a table booked for dinner, but the bouncer just snarled, "c'mere, or ... Read the complete review

Blue Bar & Grill is owned by Lyceum restaurants who own the Pan American and Baby Blue in the Albert Dock. There website is http://www.lyceumrestaurants.co.uk/ with a variety of trinkets of information and online booking operating soon. Where is it? Blue Bar and Grill is an approximately 150 seater restaurant and bar in the Albert Dock down by the waterfront in Liverpool overlooking the dock directly with stunning views of the old Victorian grade I listed architecture. It is a two storey bar with cement flooring and all the old ceiling features of an old dock building with great red brick work, and grill with outside seating. The upstairs is used ...

Blue is a bar and a restaurant, and is indeed one of the places you should visit if you want to spot local celebs from Brookside or Hollyoaks. The decor is very good, light wooden tables, and plush sofas. The upstairs restaurant area is also impressively designed, and located on the Albert docks, the far end of the bar has huge window which make the most of the attractive view. On paper, the restaurant menu looks good, although priced a little at the high end of the market. But in taste and presentation it is disappointing. I have only eaten here once with a couple of friends, but we were all so disatisfied that we haven't repeated the ... Read the complete review

Having just read the review slating Blue Bar at the Albert Dock I feel that I should write. Though I agree with the fact that, like many new restaurants trying to get in the 'yuppie market', Blue Bar has stepped up its prices a bit out of my usual range, I find it difficult to believe that the food was any cause for complaint. Being a student in Liverpool I am permanently on the lookout for restaurants that I can try to get my parents to take me to when they visit and Blue Bar has become a lunch-time favourite, offering a wide choice of extremely tasty tapas and side-dishes. I have never felt the service to be anything other than good (if not excellent) and ... Read the complete review

Blue Bar positions itself as being the sophisticated bar and restaurant for the more discerning "Wallpaper" magazine reader. A lovely venue, overlooking the Albert Dock, with an award winning staircase and sumptuous couches, it certainly looks the part. Of a weekend you can see many Liverpool B list celebs and lesser known footballers mingling with the crowd. Unfortunately, the quality is only skin deep. Spend any amount of time there and you will find very mediocre, but overpriced food, accompanied by some startlingly bad service. The staff have perfected a wonderful "Who the hell are you" stare which they practice with great fervour when ... Read the complete review
