    My wife and I had dinner at Blu and it was fantastic. The food was exceptional. I had the steak while my wife had the lamb. Meal was very flavorful and served hot. We started with a charcuterie board which was also very good. The floor manager was exceptional and the service overall was very attentive. I would certainly recommend Blu Ristorante.

    Great find for a Sunday in Toronto. Carpaccio was phenomenal for the price. Steaks were perfectly done though my wife felt they were too big! Lol. I had the lamb which was again cooked to perfection and my daughter had a pasta dish which was the daily special and she thoroughly enjoyed it. Best thing was the service though. He was attentive and helpful. We didn’t have to look for him when we needed something, though we didn’t feel like he was lurking around constantly either.

    food is generally good but this time the salads were very overdressed and when replaced were replaced with still overdressed salads. The waiter offered to take the salad off the bill since it was not eaten. When I paid the bill and I looked at the receipt the amount was actually not deducted from the bill

    This place is wonderful. First time dining here. Staff at front of house and wait staff were top notch and oh so nice. Very helpful with accommodating diet restrictions. They have gluten free pasta avail to sub as well. Zucchini pasta is vegan and gluten free and marcolous. Drinks were a bit pricey but very well done. EVERYTHING we had was something that I was so glad I did. Even the bread and olive oil is great. Seem to have a private dining area too. Will come again.
