No because the service was bad and the waitress was very rude
My husband and I treat our son and his girlfriend to a fabulous dinner here in celebration of his MBA graduation. The service was as impeccable as the food was delicious!
Mother’s Day. Except for the lipstick on one glass of sangria, it was outstanding
This was a really good experience! First time trying and brunch and other menu items were delicious and pretty decent pricing!
Thank you for your review!
I had the crab cake BLT... was told it was lump blue crab back fin... NOT... Not lump... Not back fin... VERY disappointed. Others had black grouper said it was wonderful. Desert was white chocolate creme brulée, only fair.
The Food was ok but, the Price was much too high! I had Lobster on Pasta for 30 $ but, there were just a few pieces from the claws of the Lobster on the Pasta. Normally that would go for 15 $. So - the Food was ok but not worth the Price!
I had lunch there, a party of four. Each of us had a different entree and everyone loved what they had. We shared an appetizer, the conch fritters; they were very good.
The service is good but needs improvement. Our waitress was not attentive to what was going on the table. Twice the table got crowded with plates and I had to call for someone to remove the used plates. Also, you should never bring out the entree while your guest is still working on their appetizer--not enough room on the table and, more importantly, the entree sits and gets cold.
All that said, we would definitely go back; the food is very good, the place has a relaxed vibe and very a welcoming atmosphere.
Hello Winston, we are happy you enjoyed your time at blu and thank you for your feedback. We will be sure to look into this. You can expect an email from one of our manager. Thank you again.
Had a terrific lunch. Unique menu items were delicious and well crafted. Desserts were delightful and of an appropriate portion (meaning not oversized).
Thank you Russ! We appreciate you coming in to blu on the avenue!
Great seafood (fish) with a variety of preparations.
Thank you for the review Robert!
The service and food was great.
Thank you for the review Jules!
I dined alone and outside. It took several minutes for the waitress to realize I had been seated in her area, but her service was very good, and my orders came reasonably quickly. I got the happy hour Old Fashioned and the happy hour dozen oysters on the half shell. The drink was good for the price, the oysters are overpriced even on the reduced rate. They were not a bit better than the ones you can get on a Chinese buffet for less money with a lot of other great food besides. I got the brunch lobster omelette. It was not nearly as good as one I got at IHOP some time back. Overall I am rather disappointed. Nearly $40 after tip for a lunch by myself... the food should be much better.
Blu never disappoints. The food is consistently delicious and the craft cocktails are fun and always well made. If you haven’t been to Blu, you have to go!
Thank you for your review!
Blu is such a cute little place. The staff was so friendly and Lauren, our server, was exceptional. We were so pleased with this restaurant. The beet and strawberry salad was amazing! Our main means were a little bland but still delicious over all. Lastly the carrot cake was the BEST carrot cake we have ever had. Definitely will be back to try other dishes.
Thank you for your review and feedback! We look forward to having you back at our restaurant!
Food & ambiance were very good. One of our drinks came out and wasn't quite right. The server never offered to take it off the bill, a bit disappointing but not the end of the world... Overall a nice restaurant to frequent.
We had a party of eight and all eight raved about the service and food. We were in town for two nights and seriously talked about going back the next night! Oysters and California Rolls started it off. The drinks were really good as were the entrees. I had the flat iron steak and it was excellent
Thank you for your review!
The ambiance is very nice but the entrees lack presentation and were overpriced for the portion given. Two of us had the lobster roll which came with shoestring potatoes. The lobster roll was smaller than a regular hot dog bun and was spicy. My husband ordered a seafood dish that was shrimp and crawfish over grits. Again the portion was very small and lacked flavor. Definitely not worth the price. We were surprised that for the cost you don’t get any bread or salad and the entrees only come with one side.
Thank you for the feedback Teresa. We are sorry you did not enjoy your time at blu and hope you will give us another try in the future!
Food is good but they give you small portions specially sushi. And each sushi are around 14 dollar. Not going back to this place for sushi. Plates for salads are old fashioned and cups (glass) are dirty. My were with woman lipstick 💄.
We are so sorry to hear about your experience at blu. That should not happen at our establishment and we are looking into this issue. We appreciate your feedback and hope you will give us another try in the future.
Seafood was not fresh , portion size of toast to shrimp was disappointing. We spoke to the server about the ozyaters tasting terrible and was not removed from bill .
The fontina with lobster was Amazing!
Thank you for the review and the feedback!
Excellent service and food and martinis Did not feel rushed Would definitely go back. Atmosphere was laid back and enjoyable
Thank you for the review Melody!
Great Street Seating ambiance on Park Avenue. Lauren provided excellent professional friendly service. Their version of the Moscow Mule is a great value. The Lobster Salad was tasty and nicely presented. Very refreshing. Good raw oysters on half shell. Our Texas friends enjoyed the Steak Frites and Ahi Tuna. Second time here and will be back next time we visit from Miami.
Thank you for leaving a review! We are always happy to hear when someone enjoys our establishment!
I love their Lobster Cobb. I also have the green lip mussel app everytime I go. I prefer the larger mussels v. the PEI’s and not many places serve them. Here’s the unique cool part, they put French fries on top of the mussels. Incredible.
Thank you for leaving a review and coming in! So happy you enjoyed your time here!
Josh our waiter was great!
Thank you! Glad you enjoyed Josh and blu on the avenue!
The waiter couldn’t be bothered. He was so condescending to our group of 4 friends. We had to search him out for drinks and water refills (which even asking for more, never happened). The mussels were awful but my swordfish was great.
Kristi, I am so sorry for your experience at blu. If you would please reach out to our manager, firstname.lastname@example.org, we would love the opportunity to discuss your visit in more detail and hopefully correct our mistakes. Thank you for your time.
Our server, Hillary was outstanding. She never hovered, was incredibly helpful in suggesting various dishes( when asked), she is bright and upbeat! I frequent 310 and the staff is always pleasant, but Hillary is outstanding.
The three dishes we had were each delightful; carbanara, lobster Cobb salad and shrimp and grits were each delicious. Crime brûlée was a delicious finish too!
We will have to split our time between 310 and Blu, but we definitely will be back!
Thank you for the review Margie! Were so happy to have you as a repeat customer!
Food and service is top-notch. Our server, Laura was great!!!
Thanks for the review! Glad you enjoyed your time at blu!
I took guests there on a recommendation and was very dissatisfied. The ambience was nothing special. I ordered the scallops and risotto and I couldn't eat the risotto. It was like paste. I didn't complain because we were with our guests. We had three couples and made it very clear we wanted separate checks. The checks were not only mixed up with the other guests in our party, they had charges for things none of us ordered.
I had heard so many good things about your restaurant and unfortunately my experience was disappointing.
Robert, we apologize for your experience at blu and that you did not enjoy your meal. If you would consider visiting us again we would love the opportunity to try and make it up to you. If you would please reach out to our manager, email@example.com, we would love to discuss your visit further. Thank you for your time.
Love this place!!
Thank you for the review!
Delicious burger and shoestring fries. Table was open air - very nice.
The food was good overall, but the service was excruciatingly slow. It took 35 minutes for them to serve edamame. The main course took even longer. And when it did come, my swordfish was dry.
Sat down right away at reservation time. Server was very good. Food took over an hour to come to table and restaurant was not very busy. We watched other guests sit down, get served, and leave while we waited for the meal. Manager came out and apologized and did a nice comp of the bill so I will give the restaurant another chance but would hope the kitchen issues are resolved the next time I go.
Alex, we apologize for your experience and hope you will come give us another try!
Food and Service Sevond to none. blu made it a successful first Valentine’s Day after our first 3 month of marriage
We were very excited for the food, but it was just okay. Got the grilled octopus, crab flatbread, swordfish, and scallops. Everything was just okay.
Terrible food 2 differents entree both 1 star. I;m going there since they open and they are going down fast. Watch out!!!!
Great food, reasonable prices, great service, only downside was tables are very close together and it was rather loud. Not the best place for a date if you hope to have intimate or private conversations.
Enjoyed a very enjoyable and tasty lunch. Sat at a table that looked out onto the patio and main street in Winter Park during a light rain and it was delightful.
The lobster cobb salad was uniquely presented and delicious. Our service was excellent with a personable and attentive server.
Fantastic lunch at Blu. My husband had the special sushi roll and I had a grouper Reuben. The food was delicious. Our waiter Micheal was attentive and friendly.
Brunch and Lunch. Very good food, lots of options.
Great wait staff - Hillary was very caring & able to coach us to great meals!
Service was good. The food was really good. I only gave it a 3-star because I feel like the restaurant decor and Furniture was a little dated. Our table was very wobbly and the chairs were very rickety. Chairs seem to be old. I think for what they charge for food, they should be able to update the furniture a bit.
