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!

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!

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
