Salads were great.
Burgers were undercooked and not seared. With all the condiments, bun should have been toasted, as it absorbed the condiments and cooked onions. Lettuce on the burgers was very wet...should have been washed per procedure and dried prior to service on the burger.
Need more choices besides coffee and tea, big let down.
Service was great.
Blu Café is a unique and wonderful experience. The décor is high class, even though it is located in a high school. The food is a gourmet experience with outstanding presentation and flavor. The service is wonderful, friendly and courteous. It is a favorite spot for us. The only drawback is the limited time it is open -- based on the school calendar.
A restaurant run by teenagers might scare some but this was a great experience. The food was very good and the service was spectacular. Everyone was so polite and very eager to help. Really enjoyed the experience and will come back here regularly during the school year when it is open.
We really enjoy dining at Blu'. The food is great, people are very nice and friendly, and we appreciate the students having a high quality program such as this to learn in!
Anytime someone can feature or citizens of tomorrow engaged to make a difference, that is my first choice. New Friend, old friend; business or pleasure. The food is amazing; not amazing for youth; just flat amazing! The menu changes frequently and is innovative; never disappointing in quality or quantity! Tuesday - Friday during a semester, except the first and last months of a semester.
It will be your new favorite too!
Blu is one of our favorite lunchtime treats for small groups or just a table for two to catch up on the latest news. The restaurant is busy but quiet enough to hear everyone at the table.The table service is spot-on. The butternut squash soup was heavenly! Although I am NOT a fan of Brussels sprouts, the crispy Brussels sprouts dish made me rethink that opinion! Highly recommended!
Blu is a great place to eat and the students are delightful.
I love the fact that this high school program exists. The food was good, an excellent value, and the kids did a great job taking care of us.
The staff- students were very nice, however when questioned about the food our waitress could not answer questions, like what kind of bread sandwich was on- simple things. Also the food was good tasting , however had to send soup back to be reheated because it was cold- room temp, and the fries were cold and soggy also- not even warm. The sandwich was quite good. My friends chicken fried steak was hot.
Four of us came to Blu on a Friday. The food was really quite bad....no taste and poorly done. Kale salad truly not edible. Chicken fried steak was just so-so. Crème Brule was not finished properly and the taste very thick, more like pudding than it should have been. Nothing special about the meals at all.
Last year, you couldn't get in this restaurant, especially on a Friday. This year, we brought our friends thinking we would again have a good experience. Very few people were even there during lunch. Almost all tables empty.
Looks to us like Blu has a new head Chef and things are not like they were. Blu was a true gem of a place....it's diner-like now.
First if all, kudos to Allen High School for the support and inception of such a concept. The culinary program is incredible at this school. The skill and dedication show in their product. It's easy to forget that this is not a regular restaurant, but instead a training program ran by students who are learning! The dishes the students produce are restaurant quality and then some. Our salads, sandwiches, burgers, entrees and desserts were so delicious. Kale salad was about as perfect as they come. Chocolate cake was delectable as well. The coordination, prebussing and delivery of our meal was executed so well. We can't wait to go back!
We ate at Blu on Friday when they had a chicken fried steak buffet. While the buffet was great, I was looking forward to having a full menu to choose from. I guess we will just have to make a return visit!
Wonderful student run restaurant. Excellent food at fantastic value.
I was very impressed with the overall service. The kids were awesome and the food was great.
This was my first time at Blu and I really enjoyed it. The food is prepared by students who did a fabulous job balancing flavors and the kids who were our servers were very professional. The country fried steak was delicious! Can't wait to go back and try something new!
