A friend suggested we meet for lunch at Blu Jam Café in Sherman Oaks. I never ate there so I looked it up on Yelp.
I found some good reviews, but quite a bit of one-star reviews about Blu Jam. They were written by people who may have studied English in school but are definitely afflicted with First World troubles.
Here are some excerpts (grammar not mine):
“Went here with a friend & we decided to leave. She wanted the salmon entree, but they wouldn’t substitute quinoa with anything else. She doesn’t LIKE quinoa.”
“The hostess moves to slow. She needs to look up and see what’s going on.”
“I hate this place! Millennials rule here. It is a hipster spot that does not treat older people well.”-Carol with zero friends.
“Food was ok however the glass of water had bugs in it!! Manager stated it’s because they serve organic food.”
“Breakfast was very delicious and fresh. Unfortunately so was the staff. Note to owner, too cool for you attitude is played out and taints the experience.”
“Dont try and order to go food. They take Postmates orders but wont take your Togo order.”
“customer service is slow and rude. my husband asked for a coke and it took 30 minutes after we asked 6 times. my husband went out to smoke 10 feet away from the restaurant near the street, the manager christopher said, “you cant smoke here.”
“First very low attention to a customer, no smile. we order a drink they bring it after 10 times of asking for the coke.”
“would never go back to this place anymore I was humiliated discriminate By an African American Waiter server Icame for the place I thought that I was in their very safe environment I was wearing a Hat That says Let’s make merica great again The server ignored me for 15 minutes you started to serve other people even that they came after me his name is Christian African American racist the place is it racist full of liberal racist”
“Called a few times this morning in hopes of ordering french toast for to go and it kept going to voicemail, what “popular” business misses calls??”
Moaral of storey is doant eat in Sherma Noaks specially when you are kraving frenched toasts and people who werk hear are rude and if you need to valet your husband smoking who order coke six times no answer than what business don’t answer a call for French toasted go specialy if you’re sick of hipster and milenial attitude with no reason for rude than why get taken out and eat in with Blu Jam?
