Great experience. Our server, Val, was wonderful. We were taking a trip now that we were both fully vaxxed, and while looking for places around Boston, I kept landing back at Blu. I'm glad I did, it was great. I had the swordfish, and my wife had the bolognese, both were excellent.

Very average to poor food. The starter salad arrived on a cold plate and did look like it had been plated some time ago. My duck breast was tough and inedible. My husbands lamb cutlets were just ok. We will not be going back again.

Waiter not knowledgeable about food. I hate rukala. The “caprese salad listed that it included rukala. I asked himif they could make it without the rukala. He checked and said it was already mixed up, so i said i would pick it out. When the salad came, it was 100 percent rukala with a few little tomatoes and a couple of small balls of mazarela. A 100 percent awful rukaka and nothing else. Could not eat it. The waiter did not say it was pure ricola. My wife ordered fried squid...pure breading and little squid. Just a common restaurant with deep fried food surrounded by LOTS of breading. The good news - it is impossible to find, no sign or anything. Had to ask a security guArd from acrosss the street so you won’t find it on your own. Forget it. High prices, cheap food.

Several of us enjoy dining out and trying new places; Blu looked like the perfect spot, and it was. Our waiter, Delo was everything you want in a server while the ambiance alone was worth the trip.

Parking was easy in the garage next-door but if you are not familiar with the area, it might be challenging. We called ahead and the staff told us everything we needed to know, including validation policy.

Adding to the experience, a member of the security team from the lobby guided us to the parking machine so we could pay the reduced rate ahead of time. All we had to do was hand him the parking ticket with a credit card and he did everything -talk about service!! Highly recommend .. great night out.

Great food. Tuna tartare, grilled swordfish, rack of lamb, shrimp scampi, and scallops were all a hit. Creme brulee for dessert was delicious as well. Want to go back.

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!
