                                          Corn bread small plate and the trout big plate were very good. The cod big plate was just okay. Decor was great with nicely spaced tables, but for some tables the kitchen opening is part of their view and that should be hopefully addressed.

                                          Friday night was our first visit to Blue Violet. Three of us had the Arctic Chad special and it was delicious. The 4th diner had the hot cod and he said it was delicious too. Indulged in the Almond Tart for dessert. Sooo good. Food, service and ambiance was very nice. Love seeing restaurants like Blue Violet coming to Edwardsville.

                                          Love the atmosphere...feels like being in someone's beautiful dining room...classy, not "stuffy" at all. Great service (nice to see Michael there at the tables!) Nick a great server. Food creative and delicious..different from "every other dining choice in town"!

                                          Service was very good evening though they seemed a little understaffed. The waiter and manager both kept checking on us and were very attentive. The food was delicious! My salad was a little small, so I wish I'd ordered a sandwich or larger plate, but everything we did order was great! We will be back!

                                          An exciting venue. Eye-catching decor. Exceptional service. We sat at a round table for two that was small by the time you have wine and water glasses and dinner plates. The bench seating is lower than the chair seating. We will request chair seating next time. We split a butter lettuce salad which was very good. I had the short rib. Excellent flavor, jasmine rice was nice, but I would prefer a different vegetable. Husband had the trout. Again, great flavor. Presentation of entrees was perfect. Ambiance is terrific.

                                          We were gathering with family and friends to celebrate the life of a loved one. The food was extraordinary, the staff were attentive and professional and the ambiance was lovely. Will definitely go back regularly.

                                          When we arrived at the Blue Violet we stepped in and it was beautiful! I loved the food especially the pork and also the cauliflower was delicious. We will be back !
