The menu is full of authentic dishes from the owners' native Greece. All dishes are made with locally sourced fresh ingredients. The quaint restaurant is popular so reservations are a great idea. The friendly and attentive staff will be glad to help you choose from all the amazing menu options. Start with some warm Greek bread. The lamb chops are a popular dish with regular customers and come with fresh vegetables. No meal at Blu Kouzina is complete without some baklava for dessert.

Great food, terrific service, fun atmosphere.
Ate here a couple years ago and thought it was very good. Ate last night again and it did not disappoint! I would definitely recommend.
Food and Service was Exceptional. Hummus and Scallops were great. Will definitely return.
We come to this area a couple times a year. We always eat here a few times each stay. Love it !!
Wait staff very friendly and accommodating. Excellent food and service
Went here for dinner
No fig vodka for drinks even though half their cocktail menu includes it
Meatballs were good
Eggplant dip was nothing special
The lamb fell off the bone but the lemon was very overpowering
Could be better
By far the best Greek food I have ever eaten in my life.....and I have eaten a lot of Greek food.
Best Restaurant in Florida! Thank you!
I shared the meat platter with a friend and it was wonderful. We were a party of four.
and my husband was disappointed in his eggplant meal. We all loved the eggplant appetizer.
Service was a bit slow but the waiter was very skilled except for getting our check in a reasonable amount of time.
The ambiance of this restaurant is terrific and we had a great table under cover outside.
If you like Greek food, I would say that you should give this restaurant a try.
A one time delicious Greek restaurant has lost its quality. Would not recommend.
Excellent Greek food! Everything was delicious and enjoyed by our Greek family vacationing in Long Boat Key! Attentive waiter and loved the atmosphere! We’ll be back!
Excellent food and great service. We look forward to going back as often as possible.
Loved the grilled sardine appetize. Grill fish was excellent.
Freshest seafood. The best service.
The food is outstanding and the staff are friendly and efficient. A favorite restaurant of ours for sure!
Excellent service, sat outside under the overhang where you are not on the sidewalk with passersby right on top of you. Food excellent and I would definitely return.
Great place for well-prepared Greek food in a relaxed setting.
AMAZING restaurant! One of the best we’ve been too in Florida and Sarasota particularly. Incredible FRESH food, amazingly cooked, and just beautiful and elegant beach ambience. Service was FANTASTIC! Friendly, professional, and just outstanding staff. Thank you for the amazing experience!
AMAZING! The food is delicious ! Authentic Greek Food and I am Greek ! Atmosphere is lovely . Server was friendly and we had great conversation ! Saganaki .... yummy ! The lamb chops were delicious ! I can’t say enough great things about our dining experience! This will be a must go to whenever we are in town .
This is a great place. Great food and a fun staff
I found portions were very small. If you looking for authentic Greek restaurant this would not be it. Overall it was fine place to dine.
Our go-to place in Sarasota. Terrific menu and food. Although there are other good options in town, the service at Blu Kouzina is definitely the best in town. The staff is happy and engaged and pleased to see you again. They all act like owners, not employees. They seem to genuinely love working there. Such a great experience.
Place is very loud sitting outside. Waiter was attentive, but not enough wait staff, in my opinion. Varied selection of dining options. Great greek salads.
Food was the BEST I’ve had in ages! Especially the baked cheese with figs and the Greek Salad and the lamb chops! Amazing! Wonderful service, perfect night! Don’t miss this one!
Let's just say right off the bat the food is excellent we are met by the owner I believe a bald-headed man in red shoes who is very proud of his food (as most good chefs are), unfortunately service was not up to par of the excellent food and $130. (Pre tip) for two dinners with appetizers you'd expect better service. We had the octopus, excellent (better than I had in Greece, but not Astoria, NY) the Branzino was very nicely presented and tasty. The special fried artichoke hearts excellent; but once again the service failed as we had to wait over 25 minutes and then had to ask if they had any desserts only tried their little baklava cigars (do not get those, the flat version is so much better with a little more honey on it!) very disappointed with the service overall but would give them another try next time we're in Sarasota. Better Greek food than anywhere in Fort Myers,FL but not Astoria, NY.
Age discrimination is illegal in this country. This is exactly what happen to my 20 year old daughter and her boy friend when they went to this restaurant on Friday May 14th.
I reviewed Blu Kouzina before several times and always given it a 5 star rating. This time, unfortunately the experience was not a good one. I made their reservation for 7pm on the patio. When they arrived, hostess took one look at them and led them to the inside table right by the kitchen. When my daughter pointed out that her reservations clearly stated outside, she still refused to sit them claiming no availability of the outside tables, while one was standing unoccupied and the other was being cleared.
When they finally were seated and their order taken, it seems the wait staff decided it was acceptable to ignore this young couple. After 40 minutes wait, appetizers came out together with their entrees. Food was delicious, outside table definitely worth waiting for - the overall experience extremely disappointing.
P.S - the outside table that was available when they arrived, was still empty when they were leaving...
Great service. Food is really good. Nice Greek wine list. Definitely will return.
We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at the Blu Kouzina. Our server was friendly, attentive and delightful and the food was excellent. We had several appetizers that were delicious (the saganaki is highly recommended) and very good entrees. One of our party lived in Greece for 17 years and knows her Greek cuisine. She gave our experience and the food an "A".
This was our second visit here and it was just as great as the first time. Tomato salad is incredible, the hummus is amazing . The filet mignon is easily one of the best I’ve had anywhere. Friendly service and a nice vibe
Our food was cooked to perfection and the flavors of
each dish were mouth watering! In addition, our server provided us with fantastic recommendations and entertained us with his humorous banter! We can’t wait to be back again!
Very popular spot in St Armand’s circle..deservedly so! Our server Moi started our exceptional experience with his enthusiasm. We split the freshest greek salad (no lettuce version), of a generous portion. I asked for pepper out of habit, but at first bite, it needed nothing..perfectly seasoned as served. My whole fish was cooked to perfection and also needed no additional seasoning. My husband had perfectly prepared scallops. Their olive oil is family farmed, and the secret to their seasoning in my mind...peppery flavor. My only disappointment was they don’t sell their olive oil! Highly recommend this restaurant.
We loved everything about Blu Kouzina! The outdoor seating is perfect for a beach town with a nice breeze, and the staff are very friendly and welcoming. The food is what really makes this place amazing! Everything is so fresh and flavorful, our favorite was the Greek salad - who knew a salad could be so good?? We loved it so much we went back the next day.
Food is always fresh and delicious. The octopus is extremely well prepared as is lamb shank. Great vibe and terrific service and staff.
Food was very tasty and well prepared ... I waited too long for my entree after I had appetizers... waiter could have communicated better.
Always the best place to dine in Sarasota!
As always the food was delicious. The greek salad outstanding, the special griuper dish, delicious. The service team well coordinated.
Not our best experience.
Great fresh fish
Blu is a "must have" every time we are in LBK. The lamb that I had was sensational and the opportunity to drink Ouzo and Greek wines transports you directly to Greece. We love the staff and the food and recommend to every person we meet in that area to experience Blu Kouzina.
