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.

Went to eat before going to the theater. Had a drink and Split an app and a meal and a dessert so as not to have any leftovers. They didn't have any issues with us sharing. Everything was very good. Our waiter was great too. Nice view.

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!

I’ve written a review before and Blu continues to be a great place to go before the show or anytime you find yourself in town and wanting a good meal with a great view. The wait staff is always amazing combing the best mix of attention and privacy. Apps were delicious- fig flatbread and carpaccio salad. Entrees were all seafood this evening, which were fresh and flavorful. Timing allowed us drinks and dessert which continued the well rounded meal.

This last visit was SO disappointing, I don't think we'll go back. Drinks were good, location perfect, atmosphere great, service good but the food was really bad and expensive. My husband's swordfish was so overcooked it was like rubber. My flatbread pizza was so undercooked and gooey, I ended up just eating the top. Our appetizers were also poor - his cauliflower was tasteless and overcooked and my salad was limp. Yuck. We ended up leaving a good tip because the bad food wasn't the waiter's fault but never again...

First time for lunch and not sure if they were understaffed or I experienced the norm but definitely too slow for lunch when we all needed to get back to work.

The server was doing the best he could but never addressed how slow it was (I didn’t ask either).
I have had better experiences - both service and food- when I have gone for dinner.

I was a little hesitant to go here after reading it was in the Equinox sports club. However I'm glad we went. The service was very good. The drinks were great, my Old Fashioned was made properly with 1 large cube. The flat bread appetizer was large and tasty. The salmon entre was also very well done with fingerling potatoes, roasted Brussel sprouts, and carrots.

Great place for a pre-theater dinner!! Relatively small dining room, nice and quiet. Service was very good - friendly, attentive but not too much, and we were able to enjoy a leisurely meal. Fried calamari were excellent! Italian sausage flatbread was good but broccoli rabe was overcooked. Then the herb roast cod was delicious!

Food was OK. Two of us had salads with protein added, they were good. Another ordered the swordfish, barely ate any, said that it had no flavor.
