Great spot for cocktails and dinner
Blu on the Avenue is a great new addition to the Park Avenue dining scene. The food is wonderful and ditto for the cocktails (Blueberry sangria - YUM) The $7 for a dozen oysters on the half shell happy hour special is an incredible deal and hopefully will continue. The several times that I have dined at Blu on the Avenue with family and friends has started out with cocktails and oysters and ended with an amazing dinner. This restaurant is a keeper.

Average food, good service
This place looks nice but the food is only average. Service good. The water/glass smells like fish. They must wash the drinking glasses with the fishy plates. Nothing to run back to.

Nothing was a ridiculous stand-out knock your socks off dish - yet, it was all very good. Drink list quite good!! Neighborhood is great especially if it's nice and you can sit on the patio.

Excellent addition to Park
Excellent addition to Park Ave. restaurants. Love the ambiance, food & service. James, our server made the experience the best.

Great for a date night
We came on a date night and had a great meal. The ambience was wonderful and we shared the pork tenderloin special which was delicious. Would definitely recommend

Scrumptious seafood menu!
Scrumptious seafood menu! Bright, clean, fresh décor and ambiance. Lively atmosphere, but slightly loud at times. Incredible looking brunch menu as well.

Lunch with good friends...
We have a small group which celebrates each others birthdays each year. We chose Blu because it was something new and different for us all. It did not disappoint. The food was good and our service was excellent. The atmosphere was nice because it was not very crowded.
However, I have been there in the evening and was disappointed at the noise level. Something should be done to ramp that down a little. Overall it is an enjoyable experience.
6/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
The staff was wonderful and the food was awesome. The way that the entire front of the restaurant opens up gives the feeling of dining outdoors but the comfort of dining indoors. Personally I will be returning to Blu in the future.

First date success
Was recommended this restaurant and they didn't disappoint. My date and I took the meal slow, which sometimes makes the server a little agitated. Our server was great and adapted to the speed at which we wanted the meal to go. His wine recommendations were very good. We both had sushi which was very good. We had the risotto and the sea bass which were both excellent. I will be recommending this restaurant to everyone in the future.

perfect except for the noise
Was outstanding on both visits but did have the same server. He was awesome. Menu and good are stellar with a great range including burgers to lobster. Weekend brunch is outstanding. We chose to eat dinner inside because of the many smokers outside. C'mon Winter Park... However the noise level inside was awful. We will go very early or skip weekends hoping that we can manage a conversation. The lobster cobb is a picture, huge and delicious. The duck was perfect. The brunch grits offering was stellar. Definitely our new favorite place.

Very good service & the food was fresh and delicious.

The dude abides
What can I say but try it. You will not be disappointed. Lobster roll was may favorite. Sushi excellent. And Fontana cheese dip rocked. Love winter park and this is a nice addition. Feel of Miami without the fakery.

We really love your sushi
We really love your sushi and the service is great, but the noise level is ridiculous. We have been moved to outdoor seating because we can't hear each other speak. You really need to do something about that! I only chose the "Do not recall" on the Noise Level topic because there isn't an appropriate choice for me.

1st time won't be our last
Wanted to try something new and we found Blu on the Avenue. The food selection and quality is perhaps one of the top 5 we have been to in Orlando. Service was perfect - we tend to stretch the night out and the server was very accommodating. Our table of 4 ordered appetizers to share - the fried oysters were maybe a bit over cooked, but he scallops we outstanding. The sea bass is absolutely perfect (2 of us got that dish). My friend got the red snapper which was also great.
The bar area is a bit lively which can make the room seem noisy, but we were at the front of the restaurant and is was not too bad. Overall a great experience that we will surely repeat often.

Blu is for you
Just go. It's worth it. No matter what your tastes you will find something there for you!

Perfect for Saturday brunch
We wanted a place on park Ave to do Saturday brunch and then walk to the farmers market. This place had delicious unique brunch entrees and decently priced cocktails. We will go back.

Nice addition to Park Ave. it's always nice to have selection in restaurant choices. This place makes the cut added to our list of fining venues. Food was great, portion were good left feeling nicely satiated. We will be back

We started with a caesar salad
We started with a caesar salad which was just how we like it...lite but very tasty! The halibut special was outstanding! Noise level is high so if your are looking for a quiet dinner this is not the place. Service was excellent. This was our first time at blu but we will definitely return.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
We enjoyed all of the amenities that a great restaurant has to offer. We had a great dining experience at Blu.
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had the pleasure of dining outside, but the inside dining looked very inviting as well. The menu afforded so many appealing choices, all of which were reasonably priced. I highly recommend it.
9/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food but TOO LOUD inside.
They serve the best fish I have ever had but it was way too loud for the four of us to have a descent conversation. Too bad!
And what's up with the noise level? The top level on your noise level means "do not recall" ??!!
9/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Pleasant brunch experience
We had a very attentive waiter and he made our experience fun. We enjoy sitting outdoors and have never dined inside. The brunch items we ordered were very good and we will return.

Good was great
The food was very flavorful. The only problem I had was that they forgot to honor my reservation.

This is a new venture for 310 Park which we have loved for years. The food was excellent. The service was the same friendly Winter Park Sidewalk cafe service you would expect. We are thrilled to have another choice on the Avenue.

I brought my girlfriend here and we both loved it! The good was great and it wasn't too pricey! The waitresses were kind and great!
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
We took our two college age sons and girlfriends to celebrate one of their 21st birthdays. The service was great, the food was outstanding, we had reservations and were shown to our table immediately. Wonderful place, the only negative is the parking. This is a very hip downtown area so the parking is a little difficult if you are dining after 7. We will be back, prices and food too good not to go again!
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great neighborhood gem
on the upper end of Park Ave, a nice place for a great sandwich and a drink or glass of wine. We got the grilled cheese and lobster sandwich with tomato bisque. Very nice combo and very tasty. Would highly recommend it!

BLU on THE AVENUE
Why would anyone expect anything else but perfect to another addition to the great tradition of establishments such as 310 on Park Avenue, 310 Lake Eola? The food value is amazing and the service is beyond words. I invited my family and everyone just loved it.
Great experience.Thank you!!!

Right in the middle
Blu's menu is quite versatile--even for someone with food restrictions. The menu provides something for everyone, and you absolutely cannot walk away feeling unsatisfied. We shared a simple smoked fish appetizer, and the peppers accompanying that simple dish turned it into something very special. Our server (Toby) was attentive but not a hoverer, and seemed to genuinely like what he was doing.
Our main courses satisfied each person in our group (there were three of us) and we all felt our choices were excellent. So for the money, this is a winner.
I've been there before for lunch, the nighttime ambience is quite different. The noise level, rather than distracting, allowed you to talk privately without being overheard.

Great Park Ave Gem
Blu is still relatively new but it has quickly become one of my favorite Park Ave spots. I was skeptical at first because we have not had much luck at 310 where the staff comes off as if you are bothering them by being there and the food is underwhelming. Blu is completely different, the staff is outstanding and the food is very good and priced nicely. My biggest question is whether I prefer their brunch menu or their lunch/dinner offering. Both are great! For brunch the chicken and biscuits are great, as is the pork steak and eggs. For lunch, their burger and the lobster roll are my favorite choices. For dinner try their swordfish or one of the steaks which have been cooked nearly perfectly each time we have had them. Great beer list also!

Fun Night for All
This was my second time dining at blu on the Ave and with the same sever, Rita.she was friendly and was very attentive to our group. I brought a group of friends before we went to a play at Rollins. The food was great, the service wonderful and for some of these first timers coming they had a great experience and will return...I will return!
Thank you for a great evening
