BarFly's Review of bluehour
One of the first fancy-pantsy places to pop up in the Pearl, and still a favorite haunt of Portland's Prada class. Happy hour on the patio is a far more proletariat-friendly option. Eye-candy staff is generally pretty efficient, too.
Sat & Sun. 10am-midnight

Great food and today, terrible service. After waiting 25 minutes for coffee we asked our server about the coffee. Her reply was "I only have 2 hands." Later, when we told her that the reason we were asking was because we had waited so long to get coffee. Her reply was, "Well, do you have to go somewhere?" Then, when food arrived she didn't know who ordered what nor did she seem to care. When I mentioned I had ordered coffee (which hadn't arrived) she replied, "You want coffee now?" When the bill came, she FINALLY spent some time the table acting very, very friendly, as if auditioning for her tip, which believe was going to be small. It was the worst service experience we've had in PDX and the only time we had such service at Bluehour. It will be last as we aren't likely to return. I tried to contact manager, but Bluehour gives no email address to address a problem
The food isn't nearly good enough for how much they want for it. The drinks are fine, and nothing more. Scene is not overwhelming.
Drinks were great! Bartenders rock! The smell is the "cheese". I didn't mind the smell, but it made the guys I was with gag a little bit. Come on, it's fancy fondue!
This "use to be" one of my favorite restaurants. The management chage it seems has affected them a lot. Servers are unhappy and therefore the srevice is not what it used to be. It's seems like they can't wait to get off and get drunk at the bar. The food isn't as good anymore, especially for the price. Bruce, I know you're busy with the new baby, Congratulations! and your new spot Balvo, which is great, but get back to Blue hour and see what your management is doing to your restaurant. The guy with the French accent especially. He's annoying and he walks around doing nothing. I watched a server running around overwhelmmed, doing her best, and we needed to pay the tab, and instead of taking the card and being a helpful manager he went and yelled at her in the middle of her rush. OH, yeah and the Chef with the Tatoos, tell him to keep it down when he's harrasing the staff. He seems pretty unbearable. I wouldn't want to work under these conditions. I miss the fun energy of the Blue hour, get it back.
i can't believe all the fuss about this shitty place...i have been a number of times, on different days and always leave very disappointed. with so many great restaurants/bars to go to in this town i can't believe that people still spend their money with these assholes
The best place I have ever been. This is one of the reasons I love Portland. The food is great and the drinks are friggin orgasmic. When you want to feel better than everybody else sit on the patio and sip your drink which is propably more expensive then the passersby shoes. This is definately a place to go on a friday night before you go to the parties.
