We had a great experience at Blu. The food is wonderful!!
It was my birthday dinner and it was so amazing!!
I hate complaining, but, the service was far away from FAIR!
I’m sorry, but it’s true
We are so sorry that you didn’t like your service, hope you give us another chance as it seems that you enjoyed everything else. Thank you for joining us.
So I can now say, yes I've been to blu! Having heard about it, I can also say it's worth it - and yes, I'm likely to return. Seriously, the food - prep and presentation - is 1st rate, and that's reason enough to go. So go!
Thank you so much for joining us, we are happy that you enjoyed your dinner at Blu. Hope to see you back soon.
Absolutely amazing! This was the first time I’ve ever been and I fell in love. The server was wonderful and so timely! 11/10
Thank you so much for the great review, we are trilled that you enjoyed your night with us. Hope yo see you back soon.
Great dinner with my mom for her birthday. Service was attentive and not rushed. Food was amazing....short rib excellent, as well as the chicken entree. Dessert over the top, amazing creme brûlée's as well as bread pudding. The restaurant is beautiful and nice big windows looking over downtown....good for special occassions and just a nice night out. Support your local businesses!
Thank you so much for choosing Blu to celebrate your mom’s birthday, it was a pleasure having you. Hope to see you back soon.
Great View of the theatre district and downtown crossing.
Thank you so much for joining us, hope to see you back soon.
The food has no flavor very bland. Only liked the three cheese scampi. Even messed up with the Shirley Temple.
We are so sorry you didn’t like your meal and we try hard to please all kinds of tastes. Hope you can try us another time as we change our menu seasonally. Thank you for joining us.
Loved the atmosphere, the food, and the fabulous waiter (Phillip (?), works on Tuesday nights). Our waiter was so helpful in pairing our appetizers with our entrees, along with our wine of course. He was right our with the recommendations. I had the duck which was fabulous and prepared well.
We also loved the convenience of parking in the garage below and just taking the elevators up. There were three in our dinner party, and we all have a wonderful evening and we all enjoyed our dinners. I would definitely return.
Possibly the best view of any dining experience I’ve ever had, and the service was there to match. The seafood was superb, and this is coming from an Alaskan. Highly recommended.
Great city views!
Thank you for joining us!!!!
Always a excellent experience at Blu. The service is exceptional which is one of the reason that I choose Blu as a perfect and recommended restaurant to go.
This was my third anniversary that I went to celebrate at Blu.
Thank you so much for joining us. We really appreciate you choosing Blu to celebrate your anniversary. Hope to see you back soon! Happy Anniversary!!!
It’s good, nothing extraordinary.
Our server was simply amazing! Best service in Boston! He was very thoughtful and attentive throughout the entire evening. The food was great but the service made our night! Thank you!
Thank you so much for the great review. We really appreciate it and are really glad that you enjoyed your dinner with us. Hope to see you back soon!
Always make it a point to have a night out at Blu when in the city! Spectacular views and service as always!
Thank you for joining us! We really appreciate your feedback. Hope to see you back soon !
Thank you for joining us!
Great experience overall. The huge windows overlooking Washington St are great. The vibe is sleek but not stuffy. Food is amazing with wide selection of meat or seafood dishes. Appetizers excellent especially tuna tartare. Service is top notch, friendly and attentive especially Phil. Go local and support non chain restaurants.
Thank you so much for joining us and thank you for the great review. We really appreciate it! Hope to see you back soon!
My server was terrific!
Thank you so much for joining us!
Always exceptional in food and service. ....the view’s not bad, either 😄
Thank you Mary! Always a pleasure having you!
Blu was amazing. the food was great. the portions were huge and the view was amazing
The food was great, everyone loved what they had. I had the scallops with a lobster risotto, scallops were perfectly cooked. A guest had the short rib which they said was amazing. I tried a couple different cocktails, both very good, though a little on the weaker side. We didn’t have one of the tables with the awesome view, but the ambiance was still ok. We were there for dinner before a show, the waiter asked us about that, and was great at making sure we were out on time. Only complaint is it was over priced. I have had similar quality food for less.
As always, our server, service and food were excellent!
Beautiful restaurant and the staff were very nice and the service was good considering the dinning room was full with pre-theatre diners and while the menu was interesting, it didn’t live up to expectations.
We started with the signature tapas platter and all 3 sauces were lacking the bourbon sauce was not rendered down properly and the lollipop lamb chops were over cooked, maple sauce on the scallops (bay) on pork belly was way too sweet and while the fish nuggets were prepared well the sweet chili sauce again was too sweet.
The sword fish was slightly over cooked and under seasoned but the lobster mashed potatoes were very tasty.
My husband did enjoy the braised short rib, nice portion and cooked well.
Very convenient to the theatre district, but will try a different restaurant next time
Dinner with friends before the ballet. Everything was wonderful and timing was just right. Will definitely return. Loved the variety of the menu...something for everyone including a plant-based diet.
Hostess was pleasant, friendly and helpful. Server was quick, effective and attentive.
The location is very convenient to the theater. Service is excellent. The waiter remembers us from previous visits. Drinks are very good.
Very good service and food. Would have liked to see specials beyond what was on the menu. Nice table view of Downtown Crossing.
Good for the location and the staff and food quality were very good. Something odd about the ambience. Would do it again
We came here before the theater. Our waiter Rais was extremely attentive. The meal and presentation was outstanding.
Everything was very nice but I do think the quality of the wine (at $14) per glass was high as it was not top quality wine...
excellet in every way. Our server was amazing. Love the view too. Lots of great choicdes on the menu, we'll be back!
We only had a salad and appetizer. Salad was very good but appetizer not so good. Waitress was excellent. Beautiful setting.
We had a delicious dinner before seeing a show. We loved the view ! Our waitress was perfect and made sure we done in time to get to our show.
Went to eat before going to the theater. Had a drink and Split an app and a meal and a dessert so as not to have any leftovers. They didn't have any issues with us sharing. Everything was very good. Our waiter was great too. Nice view.
Wonderful experience! Get a seat by the window!
Fish was super fresh and the flavors were balanced and delicious.
Absolutely amazing in every single way. Will be going back soon for sure.
This was a nice dining experience. They have a very good menu (many vegan/vegetarian options). Food was well prepared and the service was good although our server disappeared for a bit and didn't check in with us. We had a great table with a view of Boston's "Broadway" and the seating was comfortable. The portions were substantial and very delicious. We only remembered that the restaurant "shared" the space with a health club when we went to the rest rooms. Desserts sounded good, but we were too full to partake. We would definitely return. Great location and nice ambiance.
Fabulous lunch at Blu before a matinee of Neil Simon's play Plaza Suite with SJP and Matthew Broderick. Not even over and I rotally recommend both.
Wow! I was very impressed by Blu. I had not heard much about the restaurant but knew it was there next to Equinox but I was so pleasantly surprised how good it was. The lamb was to die for as was the salmon and scallops. I can't wait to go back!
