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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
