Enjoyed the food immensely and the service was top notch. The pork chops were especially tasty. The server was knowledgeable and attentive.

Thanks for your kind words. I am sorry it does get a bit loud sometimes. Sundays and early week days tend to be quiet. I appreciate your comments.

The atmosphere of this place is amazing, the staff is phenomenal, and the food was very good. Our waitress (Ashley) has got to be hands down, the best server on the Central Coast (and to top it off she's a sommelier as well!). Her command...More

This was my second time eating at Koberl at Blue, and the strip steak was exceptional! I only get to SLO once or twice a year, but this is the only place I'll visit for dinner.

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...More
