Blue Nile Ethiopian Restaurant
About this Business
- Ethiopian, African
$9 worth or tea and Pepsi (actual cost to you - probably less than 25 cents) is not worth losing 5 customers and anyone they share their experiences with. You should realize that more important than the cash influx that a groupon brings you are the customers that a groupon deal brings you. You should really consider a strategy that will allow you to give customers a dining experience that will leave them wanting to come back. Nowhere does your fine print say that drinks can not be purchased with the value of the groupon. I will be contacting groupon customer service for a refund, as we were all very disappointed with our experience at your restaurant. They need to know this because it also leaves us saying, "wow, another terrible groupon experience." you are representing more than your own business. Please keep that in mind. You have partnered with a larger organization who actually strives to have good customer service.
Service was a little slow, my drink was empty for most of my meal. The waitress came by to check on us and said she would be back to refill my drink, but she kept forgetting until we paid. Not enough people working to handle all the customers.
They need to visit the tables more often to check on the customer, and if possible, increase speed of service.
good food - good service - clean - very friendly I will return an suggest to others
Thank you for the dining experience that I had. I will surely be back. The food was amazing. The service was great. Once again - thank you.
Very nice decor, helpful staff, a good experience overall.
This is still a work in progress, but the food is tasty and the service, while not outstanding, is satisfactory. The cook came out to greet us following our meal, a nice touch. The waitperson was very friendly upon arrival although she appeared to still be learning the job. She remained friendly throughout.
The food was fantastic! Thank you :-)
Thanks for an interesting meal with three friends.
From Our Editors
Blue Nile Ethiopian Restaurant follows East African culinary customs in its dining room and kitchens, where cooks draw on traditional recipes and spices. During meals, patrons are encouraged to partake in the practice of gursha, a tradition in which diners manually place food in each other's mouths to symbolize the bonds of loyalty and friendship. Traditional unleavened injera bread, forged from self-rising wheat flour and the native Ethiopian grain teff, accompanies all entrees, which chefs load onto one plate designed for sharing among the members of each table. Equipped with the pancake-like accessory, diners can scoop up a panoply of lamb, beef, and chicken stews infused with a flurry of spices that, like outtakes from The Muppets, range from mild to spicy. Blue Nile Ethiopian Restaurant's chefs shun artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives in all dishes, and vegetarian items arrive uncontaminated by butter, eggs, milk, and disparaging thoughts about Congress.
