One of the best dinning experiences. I had to wait 30 minutes to get a table even with a reservation but the food and service was outstanding. Our server has good knowledge of the whole menu

Blu has a wonderful view of the Theater district, the food was great and the drinks even better a lil pricey but well worth it, the service was nice and very informative the vibe of the restaurant was excellent especially for a special occasion or an average date night... they validate parking!.

Oh. My. God. Some of the best food I’ve ever had. I almost can’t put it into words. We had the fig flatbread and tapas. Both were absolutely perfect. Temperature, presentation, texture and the taste was unmatched. We went for our anniversary and I asked for the best seat in the house. They definitely fulfilled that request- such a cool view of Boston. Food came out quick and the waiters were just the right amount of attentive. Will definitely come back!!!

Everything about Blu was wonderful. The delicious meal, the waiter, the city view from our table and the ambience of the restaurant. I had the swordfish with lobster mashed potatoes and it was fresh and well prepared. The dessert—Bumbalini, which was a fried Italian donut with pastry cream filling and a warm dulche la leche sauce, was a real treat. A lovely restaurant and great experience

From the check in to the check out it was phenomenal through out. Every single instrument placed on our table was carefully thought of. The food was fantastic & the server was a stand up gentleman. Definitely a place I will be recommending to everyone that wants to come to Boston. Thank you for making my fiancée’s birthday such a memorable experience !!

What a great experience from beginning to end! The view from Blu is one of the best I’ve experienced in a restaurant, overlooking the theater district. The swordfish I had, as well as the cod that my girlfriend had, were both phenomenal. I had never seen swordfish so big! The lighting was perfect and the service was extraordinary. I will definitely come back on my next visit to Boston!

Absolutely loved this place. I mean a little odd that you could see into some of the homes across the street but other than that the street view was pretty cool. Our server was a nice man from Brazil. I can’t remember his name but he was fun, attentive, and was able to keep up with a group of five girls celebrating a birthday! He did well. The food was amazing. I had the lamb roast with potatoes.. TO DIE FOR. I had the duck as well and I’m not really it sure which was better. It was all so delicious. I couldn’t decide what drink to get so I kept it simple and stuck with a white sangria. That was good as well. They brought out chocolate cake and vanilla ice cream to me that said happy birthday on the plate. The decoration was good but the cake was even better. Overall a really great experience!

Blu was great, food, drinks, and ambiance all fantastic. The restaurant was a bit chilly, possibly because it was 12 degrees out and the restaurant has giant windows. The service was a bit slow and it was not crowded so that seemed strange. Otherwise, very good.

First time diners at this restaurant. Hardly any other diners due to the pandemic, but that was fine. Service was spot on. Food was perfect and presentation was beautiful. Waitstaff was kind and friendly. Was nice to sit and eat at our own pace without any crowds or noise. Will go back again.

The restaurant is built to display a lot of drama, so my expectations for food were a bit lower. It turned out that the meal was very good - fish, pasta, vegetarian, all strong. Service was excellent.

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.
