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.
Great service and food. Servers were all very attentive to all our needs. Mauricio was great.
Outstanding food and service. Live this place.
Great atmosphere, friendly staff, delicious food.
We had a wonderful evening with friends.
Definitely will return.
The food was exceptional and worth every cent.
The carpaccio truly is the best of the best!
Calamari with the tomato was amazing and the Ragu gnocchi was to die for!
Best place to celebrate a birthday. Thank you Blu!
Very enjoyable meal.. it was our 2nd time back this summer.and I have to say it was much improved from our last visit … great service too and very good food
Excellent date night for my girlfriends birthday! Our server Michael could have possibly been any better! Excellent food along with the quality service! No complaints whatsoever, definitely will be back!
Felt a bit rushed
Outstanding service and quality. Bring an appetite, these portions are generous
The one major problem, noted by other reviewers, was the noise under the plastic cover over the patio caused by clients who had to shout to make themselves heard. First I tried to communicate by raising my voice, but to no avail. The next was to draw my chair closer to the guest I had invited, but even then I had to strain to hear. Next time I would choose to sit inside, where perhaps the sound situation is better.
Otherwise, the food was excellent and also the service.
Had a great time. With family and friends Will be back soon.
It was my birthday and I celebrated alongside my cousin and sister. The food was absolutely amazing; mouthwatering, decadent, outstanding food. The energy of the place was just top-tier. And the service was impeccable.
Was amazing, food was so good and the service was amazing. Great date night
Overall very good. Tha apple salad is amazing yet we found their version of a Caesar salad quite salty. The squash ravioli were very good aaa was the mushroom risotto. The duck leg was a little over cooked. Gelato trio for dessert was a nice way to finish the meal.
Excellent choice! Great food, outstanding service. Been to most restaurants in Yorkville and this is definitely on the list to return to!
We went there for my husband’s birthday, we had an outdoor seating, there was a lot of noise we barely could hear each other talk. The starters were delicious (burrata and grilled calamari) I had a risotto and it was too salty, my husband had a steak but didn’t like the sauce that comes with it. The service was very good, even if I had trouble hearing the waiter because of the noise.
Food was amazing and service was even better. Our server Mercutio made amazing recommendations and took care of our table. Will definitely be going back!
First time experience at Blu, I loved everything about it. The service was impeccable, so attentive and felt appreciated as a guest. Food presentation and quality was beyond outstanding. The Burrata and grilled calamari are out if this world. The menu offers a really nice selection. The ambiance is perfection. Restrooms are also impeccably clean snd well maintained. I appreciate the attention to COVID measures as well. A very special thanks to our server who made our dining experience perfect!
Nothing but good things to say. First time I'd been to this restaurant, and I'll definitely be there again at some point.
The service was fantastic and made our anniversary special.
The food was priced well for their main menu items, however the special was underwhelming (portion wise). Generally the food was tasty - although you can get “better” tasting food at a lower price point elsewhere.
Ambiance was great and overall your experience was positive - we would come back!
Top notch service and food. My friend and I both enjoyed our dinners. Will definitely be back!
Was very noisy. Would have like to have soft music vs loud noise of people.
Excellent service, good food and ambiance. Certainly, not the best for value…but to be expected within close proximity to Yorkville. Not the most extensive menu, but I can recommend the carpaccio, zucchini fritters and the tuna tartar. Can’t quite understand the obsession with sweet potatoes, as every single one of their many potato side dishes/accompaniments are sweet potato based? Weird, and hardly a situation which affords the customer some selection. Overall, the food was good….but not great. Let me know when the kitchen staff discovers there are different types of potatoes available for cooking….
Service is always top notch. Best beef carpaccio in the city, crispy calers make it. Attention to detaul is the key. Once you try Blu it will become your go to restaurant!
Laurel PROVIDED THE MOST AMAZING SERVICE!!!!!!!!!! We’re definitely going back just because of her!
great service. food was OK. rather pricey for standard fare. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and helpful
That was our second time at this restaurant. First time the food was amazing. Unfortunately I can’t say the same thing for yesterday’s dinner.
I ordered the tuna which is accompanied with eggplant that was extremely salted and tasteless. Besides the tuna, nothing in that plate had a good taste.
We also ordered arugula salad that was poorly dressed.
Lamb was fire and my waitress was outstanding. I'm going back for sure.
Maurico made our evening. We went for my Partner's birthday dinner and the service was above and beyond. Everyone treated him like a king and made the whole evening extra special. Thank you so much! Cannot wait to come back.
Avenue road cars noise and exhaust a drawback - otherwise very good
One of the best dining experiences I have had! Would definitely recommend
Excellent restaurant! Food was amazing, nice atmosphere and very polite and courteous staff. Very nice for dates or romantic dinners. They do not rush you so you get plenty of time to enjoy your meal and drinks. 5 star !
Delicious food. Amazing ambiance. The tiramisu was unfortunately horrible.
Great eating outside with all the greenery. Glad to see Mauritzio back. Good size portions & good Vino! Ciao for now
We celebrated our anniversary at Blu restaurant for dinner. The experience was flawless. Service was outstanding, ambiance lovely, and the food fabulous.
Very memorable experience.
In all trips, there is one night we need to relax. Blue restaurante provided the comfort we were longing for: cosy setting, professional staff, that are attentive yet not intrusive, excellent menu, good wine, elegant yet not overbearing decor.
