We had a awesome Server name Damian Diaz , he did amazing job and always check to make sure we were doing good and we didn't feel rush. I will definitely recommend everyone to go.

Service was excellent as with the food. However, there was a rowdy table. Not sure if this is the norm at this location but when you’re trying to have conversation and all you hear is people yelling “yoooooooooo” it becomes a bit of a turn off for the overall experience. It’s a small space so you can imagine how quickly the yelling becomes annoying.

My duck entree I had was Ok, nothing to brag about at all. My server, I believe his name was Henry as I am writing this 3day later was super cool, professional and attentive. If it weren't for magical dining I would be livid. Being that we only spent $90 on dinner and a couple of drinks I'm not so mad but I would understand if others would be. Not sure of I'll be back bc it was nothing special about this place at all. We had reservations for outside and they were trying to seat us at some little table next to a high top where the other table would have been sitting above us about 2ft away🤦🏾‍♂️ I said absolutely not so we had to take a table for 6 when it was just us 2...

Service was very slow but food was good. It was my nieces’ birthday so the waiter wished her a nice bday but I expected him to at least add a candle or special note on her dessert to mark the occasion. Service was definitely a bit disappointing.

Ordered from the Magical Dining menu which had 3 options for entree (salmon, sword fish or duck). My partner had the sword fish & I ordered the duck. We were both disappointed. The rest of the meal was just fair. Since there are so many good restaurants in the area to choose from, we are not likely to return.

We dined out to celebrate my cousin’s 40th birthday. They offered us magical dinner option when we arrived. We had several appetizers before we decided and all were delicious. Most of the ladies ordered magical options. Everything was delicious until the main course. My friend who order the sea scallops her risotto on the entree was extremely salty. Could not eat the risotto at all. Everyone that received the potato side dish also could not eat because of the leave of salt. We mentioned to the server and he did not offer a replacement no did a manager come and talk to us.
No one really made a big deal because we did not want to ruin the vibe for the birthday girl.

Very disappointed that all my guest did not get to enjoy their meal.

The food was good and the $37 3 course meal was a good bargain for the Magic of Disney promotion. The disappointing part was the bottle of red wine was very warm. I asked the waiter to put it in a chilled container. He put it in a container but it was not chilled so it didn’t do any thing to drop the temperature.
The main course was served long before we were finished with our first course. That meant that our table was very crowded with too many plates, and we felt rushed
There was no one waiting to be seated so it’s not like they had to hurry us along.

We came for Orlando Magical Dining and had never been here before. We were seated next to a wall in the middle of the restaurant, so no view/ambiance. We could have been sitting in a subway for all the character this place had. The front door was open- when questioned about it, as it was a bit warm & humid inside, we were told that the door had to remain open as customers were seated outside?? Strange, because FL State law requires that doors must remain closed to the elements and for BUGS. They may want to check on this, as I'm positive a lot of bugs entered while we were here for 2 hours, let alone after dark!!
Anyways, the service was the best part of our experience. We had Jeff who was on top of it, timing was good, very friendly & professional.
Both my husband it was good, not very spicy, nothing fabulous. My husband had the 1/2 duck for the entre, which he enjoyed once he got past the overwhelming kimchi sauce (we like kimchi, but couldn't taste the duck.). Also, 1/2 duck means 2 small legs here. I had the salmon & I can honestly say that I've Never had salmon that tasted like Nothing!! We both had the small key lime pie for dessert & it was enough for us & flavorful.
I would not recommend blu on the avenue, especially for Magical Dining. Perhaps other items on the menu are better, we don't know, but we can certainly find a better place to have dinner for $120.00 (That's with 2 drinks & the tip.)

I believe our waiter's name was Peter. He was an excellent server with great recommendations and was very knowlegable about the menu. Great sense of humor.
We were celebrating my birthday and it was a wonderful evening. Love the lobster salad and beautiful presentation! My husband thoroughly enjoyed the fish tacos! Would highly recommend!

The duck wasn't very good felt the sauce took from the duck. It says half a duck didn't realize that meant two legs. Swordfish was good. Will not be back wasn't for me.

Server was knowledgeable and friendly. The batter used on conch fritters appetizer was very dark and made fritters look as though they were burnt. Fritters may have been cooked longer than they needed because even though the fritters were tasty, they were a tad bit rubbery in chewing them. Food was hot and seasoned just right. Would recommend all to try Blu on the Avenue.

Drinks very light pour - server had asked if we wanted double we said no. Ordered vodka with fresh lime. Tasted watered down, no lime or vodka taste.

Sashimi good. Fish taco tasted like canned pineapple and fishy tasting mahi. Have never had mahi taste like this. Mahi is not a fishy fish. Totally inedible.

Conch fritters seemed well prepared but conch so chewy it could break a tooth. And, yes, I know conch has some chew to it, but not like this.

Very disappointing. Won’t be back

I have to say that I had high hopes walking in. Those hopes were quickly ended. The service was kind of slow and the food left little to be desired. I ordered a drink and it didn’t taste right, so I had them replace it which I had no problem with. I asked for another drink(Manhattan) and it was not good at all. My girlfriend was supposed to go back again today but quickly canceled after the experience.
