It was accompanied by poor service, including lack of ability to understand the waiter, murmuring through his mask, but not understanding our requests, including our food orders. A second waiter came over three times to get the information correct. The only good part of the meal was the very tasty dessert cheesecake, with berry topping. And the coffee was fine. We do n ot plan to return.

Great tapas, shrimp scampi and swordfish. It’s nice and quiet but no real atmosphere. Good service except that the water agreed to separate checks and ten didn’t deliver. Made it a bit annoying to have to settle up.

The drinks are great and the service was absolutely wonderful! Our server Sophie was very kind and anticipated our needs well. I saw her take photos for pretty much every couple that was seated around us (and us as well). The food is mediocre, the Blu Tapas were good and the bread was this delicious focaccia, but our entrees were just okay. I'd come back for a quick drink and apps, but likely not for a full meal again.

Tuna Tar Tar was good but nothing special. Scallops needed a harder sear and everything on the pleat was under seasoned. Lobster risotto was cooked well but as noted, needed salt. Swordfish was cooked well but otherwise nothing exciting. The yellow sauce was unappealing and looked like mustard. Service was good. Waiter vanished for several minutes during the meal. Not a big deal except he was keeping our wine some ware in a bucket and left us with empty glasses. Space is interesting but like the menu it is dated. Even the chairs were old and saggy. Overpriced, OK food in an interesting setting. All things considered I will not return.

A long-awaited special occasion was especially enhanced by our dinner at Blu! Thank you so much!

Those are the only reasons I would recommend anyone visit Blu. We ordered: - Tuna tartare for an app and it was swimming in so much soy that was all you could taste. - One main course was a steak with the mushroom stuffed gnocchi. The gnocchi was drowning in tomato sauce that tasted like the can. So much so that you couldn't even tell there were mushrooms in the gnocchi. - The other main course ordered was steak with the sword fish. I requested no saffron butter sauce due to a dairy issue but that must have been where all the flavor was for the sword fish. It was a GREAT cut of fish, but it had absolutely nothing on it. The lobster mashed potatoes that came with the fist were AMAZING. - Both steaks had to be sent back because they were not edible. We both ordered medium and they came out well and clearly from a dirty grill. The only flavor was the remnants of what was charred onto the grill racks, and that was NOT a good flavor. There are far better options in the city. Especially if you are dropping over $200 for dinner. -

Daylight view from table rewarding. Excellent menu choices. My companion ate every bit of the sword fish. I was satisfied with the Vegetarian Feast, the one vegetarian option. Pinot Noir was adequate. Coffee was outstanding. Desserts were excellent: Mini Bomboloni Cup could use a delicate drizzle of chocolate, otherwise perfect. Orange Crème Brulee is smooth and light with a finish of orange. Looking forward to our next meal at Blu.
