The food is top notch, the rack of Lamb and Gnocchi is a must have! Blu has the best staff out of any other restaurants in the city, one of the main reasons I keep coming back.

Food was great. Outdoor patio one of the best in the city. Decor inside very inviting. Lots of soft walls to absorb sound. A waiter with personality helped us order. Not stuffy at all.

We have spent excellent time at the restaurant. We liked the food, service and the interior. The only disappointment was that we expected live jazz as it was written on the website and there was none.

Trendy place, somewhat dazzling decor, but a fun vibe. Somewhat pricey entrees but a well thought out, short menu. Great service through our meal from various friendly servers, who seemed to work well as a team, regardless of which table needed something.

We all found the blue lights hard on the eyes. Second time now and we won't come back because of that. Waiter was superb! Tuna was sent back, he knows why and they admitted that it wasn't up to their usual quality. The problem was fixed as they immediately offered something else, that we really enjoyed. The octopus appetizer was very small. If you fix the lighting, we will be back.
Thanks

Restaurant was dark. Waiter never brought bread as he said he would. Cornish Hen entre was fair and accompanied by inedible Brussel sprouts. (1 sprout cut in half) Service was poor especially getting our food. Don’t waste your money and go someplace else. Sorry we chose this restaurant. Won’t return.

Our server Maurizio (I believe that was his name, he told us he was from Mexico) was exceptional. The food and atmosphere was excellent, but the service from Maurizio put it over the top and he is the single reason why we will return sometime soon.

Had a great experience at Blu! Our server was kind and knowledgeable, food was delicious and satisfying portions, we were attended to efficiently and empty plates didn’t stay on our table for long. Would absolutely go back to try more from the menu! Had the braised beef gnocchi, loved it. We are both girls in our early thirties and felt just as well taken care of as any of the other older and more affluent guests. Very happy :)

Great Italian food, with some contemporary dishes if anyone doesn't like Italian. Modern, clean with very nice decor. Definitely upscale, great place to entertain or have a special dinner. The service was very professional: attentive without being intrusive, and the waiter seemed to be there whenever we needed him and otherwise left us to our dinner. Definitely will go back. I suggest parking at Yorkville Village mall.

Service was competent and very friendly, attentive but not too much very good.
Food was OK. I had the duck confit with risotto. In my view both was overcooked. The meat as well the risotto was too dry.
Will give you another chance in a few month to see if you got up to speed after having been more or less locked down for quite some time.
Recommend it to a friend not at this time.

What a great experience! Went here to celebrate a friend’s birthday milestone and was great from start to finish. Had the calamari, risotto and scallops special, it was all delicious. I made a note that it was a milestone birthday and a request for a birthday message on a dessert and they didn’t forget. The service was wonderful, didn’t get the staff’s name but they were excellent and made sure we were taken care of. This was my first time dining here and I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a wonderful fine dining experience.
