As always divine. Even on a limited menu due to Covid. Such wonderful staff.
Great service, amazing heated patio and nice comfort food
The service by our server was outstanding. Professional, attentive, fast, and perfect. The food was outstanding as well. Would definitely recommend to anyone and I will be back!
Great service ... awesome food . The patio was nice and covered . Nice vibe .
First time here and I was very happy. Our server was so helpful and the atmosphere was nice on the patio with the heated lamps. Our food came in a good amount of time and I loved the elderflower drink. Would definitely recommend to go with a friend or on a date.
LOVED IT, WILL BE GOING BACK FORSURE.
TBH IT IS BETTER WHEN DRAKE ISNT THERE, LESS SECURITY AND THE STAFF CARE MORE FOR YOU
Great food, great service. Highly recommend it
Salmon was excellent. Service exceptional, everyone so happy to be in a reataurant! Staff and patrons!
Celebrated a birthday . Great dinner & great service .
We will miss seeing everyone now that Blu will be on lockdown!!
The evening was a lot of fun, the food great, the service and server friendly and efficient. That said, the evening started on a bit of a sour note. Our reservation was for 7:30pm. Upon arrival the greeter asked for my name looked at his list and noted, quite abruptly, that we had arrived outside of their window, by a mere 3 minutes I might add, and that our table may have been given to another. It had not and we were seated immediately. Not a great first impression for either couple in our party of 4. I must add the following: I live within walking distance of Blu, this was the first visit for each couple, sadly other than take-out, the city has ordered all restaurants to close as of November 23rd only. Under the circumstances, not a particularly great PR move by the restaurant’s greeter in my opinion.
We love dining at Blu. Our friends had never been before . They really enjoyed it !
Great experience! Drinks, food and service was amazing.
I felt that another group received quite a bit of attention from the wait staff, and some other quieter diners, including us, were not afforded the same degree of consideration. In addition, all decisions were turned over to my companion, who is male, as if he were automatically in charge of our meal. In fact, I was hosting him. This irony made the inappropriate attribution of authority all the more distasteful. The food was terrific, however. And it is a beautiful space.
Great food and service! Beautiful patio! Very comfortable!
Heated outdoor patio was perfect for an evening out during Covid. Staff was friendly. Service was good. Would return.
Great service and atmosphere! Food was a little underwhelming in terms of seasoning and flavour, pasta had a lot of oil in it.
We thoroughly enjoyed our experience from beginning to end!
Always great food and service
Always happy to be on Blu’s patio whatever the weather outside!
Awsome heated patio,great food,nice selection of wine and our server Brian was the best. Me and my date had a lovely time.
Great place and amazing food! Their patio is pretty warm 👌🏼
Beef carpaccio was 👌🏼
We have always liked Blu, for years before they relocated. The relocation was unfortunately affected by Covid-19. We have dined there 5 times since. The earlier experiences were at a time when the weather was more favorable and we enjoyed them all. Our latest experience was Oct 28 - a cold night. They have installed a tent and heaters and we were very comfortable - except that we had to ask that one heater be turned down. Service was as thoughtful and efficient as ever, and the food was excellent. Blu is on our list of favorites and we live in Yorkville, so it is a very convenient venue.
We went there for a birthday celebration. The service, food and ambiance were excellent as usual!
Great as usual, blu never disappoints, I enjoyed the heated patio.
Everything was great . Love the patio
Amazing food, incredible and attentive service, beautiful outdoor patio 10/10 in every way
It was my sons reception. As we had to alter their venue Blu was very very accommodating the service was fantastic the food was great. We all had an amazing time. Thank you for making it a beautiful evening.
Our second visit to Blu was on a cool evening in the latest COVID lock down. We were seated on the outdoor patio. They were more than prepared to ensure our comfort, lots of propane heaters.
The service was exceptionally good, and the food delightfully so as well.
We will be returning.
Pasta was really good. Wonderful service. Definitely recommended.
Food was tasteless.we were sitting in entrance .i didn’t feel comfortable. So many people back and fort but still slow service staff wasn’t friendly and welcoming
An awesome restaurant. Great food and wonderful service.
The outdoor patio seating is excellent, food was delicious and service was great! Would definitely repeat again.
One of the managers, Mauricio, was amazing! My wife And I were celebrating our Elopement during COVID, and He was so attentive, friendly and caring, making our celebration that much more special. We travel and visit many restaurants and can honestly say, we have never had an experience at a restaurant quite like what Mauricio gave us. We will definitely go back to Blu because of Mauricio. Also the food was amazing!
Awesome food and ambiance! The patio was nice and warm with the heaters.
Great experience, great food.
Excellent food and service, as always !
Brian is a fun super knowledgeable waiter - geat job!
It was the first time visiting and I booked the outside however, the interior design of the restaurant was so pretty that I changed my mind to seat inside. The food was great and the service was fantastic. Definitely would recommend!
Fabulous outdoor space with great ambience and very high end heaters !!! Great attentive service and lovely meal with friends. Thank you Blu🙏🙏
