Great experience. Food was fabulous. Had the short rib, delicious. Service was prompt and friendly. Love the atmosphere and great view of the city. Tables are spaced apart and very enjoyable.

The food was excellent! Very filling and looked great. The service however was terrible. They were all very snobby and rude, the group I was with all felt the same. Horrible customer service and terrible attitudes. Too bad I definitely would have gone back again for the food but the staff there almost ruined our entire night.

It was a nice place, but given the way it was advertised I was expecting a lot 'more'. The food was good as well as the service, but I had thought the view, ambiance, and overall experience would be better.

Just googled restaurants with a view and Blu was the best restaurant we went to all weekend. Did not disappoint. We got the calamari and sirloin steaks that were in an amazing red wine sauce. Highly recommend and the view was also great! Was a little pricey, but worth it. When we are back will definitely come again.

Our experience at Blu was amazing! The service was spectacular, our waiter was so attentive and made our anniversary dinner that much better! We had an AMAZING city view and the ambiance was romantic and chic. They also had a vegan option for my boyfriend, which is not easy to find in fine dining restaurants in Boston! They even gave us a voucher to save money on parking! I would definitely go back and would recommend to anyone looking for a night date night spot.

I took my girlfriend to Blu for out 1 year anniversary and made a reservation a month in advance to let the staff know so we could be given seats with a view of Boston. When we arrived, they bumped my table to one in the center of the dining room surrounded by other guests in favor of a large party that was coming in later. Otherwise the food and service were great, but I did not like the fact that they did not accommodate us as requested because the view was the sole reason I had made reservations there.

Responded on October 26, 2020

Hi Walter. I am so sorry we couldn’t accommodate your request. Due to COVID-19 regulations we are very limited and have only half of our capacity. We try our best to accommodate all reservations that request window seat, but it’s mostly first come first serve as pretty much all reservations have the same request. I am glad that you enjoyed your dinner and had a good time celebrating your anniversary. I apologize again, hopefully you can join us another time. Happy Anniversary!

Didn't know what to expect with the crazy COVID rules and regulations put in place by Gov Baker. Blu did a very nice job of making the restaurant warm and hospitable. The tables were all spaced far apart with no "dummy" tables scattered about. It felt like we were just having a regular night out pre-COVID. The food and presentation were excellent. I had Diver Scallops and my wife had Swordfish. They were both prepared perfectly, even the Risotto was done perfectly. Our waiter was Delo and he was great; very attentive and right there when we needed him. We stayed for cappuccino and dessert. You can't miss with Blu.

We enjoyed a Steak and Chicken - the steak was appropriately cooked but the chicken was too dense to cut and thus not eaten - no one noticed. The crème Brule dessert was very good. This place is VERY difficult to find, little to no signage. A very nice setting with nice views of the theater district but the food was disappointing. Service was professional and attentive.

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.

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.
