it is amazing, and I love all the food I had tonight. The only upset thing is that the seared tuna sold out as I arrive, I thought I have already arrived early enough.

Very polite staff but the food was a disappointment. Apart from the beet salad that was delicious, everything else was not good at all. The desert in particular was horrible.

I was on the second floor overlooking the main flloor getting a look at the magnificent chandelier.

I had the Artisan Lettuce Salad and the Linguine with Clam and Seafood Special and Tiramisu.

All the food was great the service is excellent with many staff ready to help.

Great ambience and music

Service was very good. I found my main course not to be very hot, and portions quite small for some items. Drinks very expensive.
However, overall we had a great time and did not feel rushed. They were very generous with desserts as we were celebrating birthdays, an anniversary and an engagement !
I would recommend this restaurant.

Great spot for informal but special dining. Took staff from work and instantly everyone was impressed with the atmosphere. Cleverly spaced out tables, and two levels with open air really adds to the ambience.

If you love Italian food, you will be impresses. I had the pasta special, others the sirloin and others risotto, all good sized portions; leftovers to take home!

Service was delightful, prompt and accommodating as we had to downsize from 6 to 4 and the new table was for 4, no empty seats. We also were a bit late, due to traffic/uber but were not at all rushed even though we were the first sitting.

I'm thrilled this restaurant is close to work as it will be a go to in the future!

Great place to eat. Very comfortable seating with great service. The food was wonderful. The only reason I gave a lower star rating was that I had to send back my meal as my food allergies weren’t taken into full consideration. I had asked for a part of the dish not to be included as I was allergic to gluten and barley. The meal showed up with a side dish that I asked to have removed. The waiter and the cooks didn’t think it was a big deal as it only had a little bit of the allergen. They did replace the meal but it was disappointing to have to deal with it by sending the meal back.

Food was out of this world. Can't recommend anything enough! Their Carpaccio was phenomenal, best I've ever had. Their Osso Bucco dish was also divine. And to wrap it all up, we shared their Tiramasu. Service was impeccable. A smidgen steep on price, but worth every dollar!

I cant believe how bland the food was. I had to come home and eat crackers to get the taste out of my mouth.
I had the shrimp bisque it was so watery and tasteless. Octopus was okay. My husband had the tuna and I had the hen. Both were so so awful we couldn't finish it. For dessert we shared the tiramisu which again was utterly disappointing. After a $250 we went home and ate crackers. They need to fix their menu. Having said that, the ambiance was wonderful and so was the service.

The Rigatoni Bolognese was pretty mediocre and a disappointment. The ravioli was excellent but very small portion for the price paid. Ambience was nice but not worth the value. The bottle of red wine ordered was awful - Chianti. Tiramisu was not great either. Cocktail (old fashion) was excellent - that was the highlight of the evening.

For a business dinner, Blu was very good in all aspects (food, service, value, setting) except the noise level and background music. Would hesitate to use Blu again for a business dinner where the focus is on conversation.

Nice platting and good. Worthy of a date night or other special occasion. The order of things was a little discombobulated like the entrance of the patio door, people waiting and getting to the bathroom. Not friendly for the aged as the dining is on the second floor and bathroom in the basement.

Our experience last night at Blu was outstanding. The live music was so nice. They happen on Sunday Nights. We celebrated our anniversary and all the staff made an effort to wish us a happy one and made our dining experience memorable. Food came promptly and was delicious! Service is top notch! Will definitely be back again! Thank you so much.
