We enjoyed our meal. Excellent Fried calamari. The Caesar salad could use more robust savory seasoning in the dressing.

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.

The staff and service was great. The only negative was the portion size of the chirashi bowl. We were still hungry and we are small women. It tasted wonderful though.

Service good. Nice menu choices. However, lobster is frozen, not cooked fresh there. But l believe this is a temporary issue with shortages. Sushi was excellent. Will return.

He cinch first tees are very good and the service is friendly and professional. It’s a great place to go on a date or to get dressed up and just take yourself out!😊. I tried the duck entree and it was good, but a little too much bar b q sauce. Or maybe I was a little partial to the sauce I am not sure. Everything else was delicious and this restaurant deserves your opinion too. I hope you get a chance to try it out

We really enjoyed our Father’s Day dinner. Lindsey, our server, was amazing, especially with our young children. The food was so delicious and so was the spicy margarita the bartender made for me. Highly recommend this spot for a great meal!

Seated on sidewalk for two. Part of the great night street and restaurant scene of S Park Ave in Winter Park. Jessica was great server. Seafood is specialty with a touch of sushi. Nothing fancy or culinary cutting edge but solid breadth of raw and cooked seafood dishes.

We have a very difficult crowd to feed. I have a super picky 11 yr old who will only eat chicken tenders. The graduate we were celebrating is a vegetarian. Everyone found something to eat and it was all very good. I did feel like the staff were less than pleased with us.

Server was great, the atmosphere was busy, our issue was with the kitchen. It took almost an hour to get raw oysters and then about 40 more minutes to get 2 of 3 entrees ordered. My daughters entree (sushi) wasn’t served until after we had finished our meal AND spoken to the manager about the delay. While they did adjust the bill, at the point of them asking what they could do, the only way to correct it would have been to serve the food. Sadly my daughter waited over 2 hours to be served sushi so regardless of the final bill, the experience was already flawed. They couldn’t even bring out bread in the interim. Hopefully they will fix the kitchen issues because the location and vibe were great!

Treated some very close friends from out of town who we hadn't seen in a couple of years (so it needed to be special). Blu did not disappoint - they hit every note dead center.
