Lovely atmosphere with live music. Staff was accommodating and very friendly. Our server Bryan added to the whole experience. We had the grilled calamari and the burrata and beet salad. Both were delicious. Look forward to visiting again soon
It was a great service. We loved it! We will be back.
Great food, great people. Exceptional service.
Amazing Food good servcie
but the patio should have been more enclosed
a little too cold
We enjoyed the restaurant every much..We have already recommended it!
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.
The service and food at Blu was outstanding. We would definitely go back.
With large groups they needs to alot more than 2 hours
The food was amazing 👏 the service was great. The restaurant was quite busy in a good way
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!
Food was okay but I could get better food for less money elsewhere.
All I can say is I will be going back as soon as I'm back in Canada.
Good ambiance and very good service. Food was just ok, not memorable. Overall a good experience but the food was a little disappointing.
we were very close to a table of women who were very loud and vulgar language. Wish we were moved.. made eating dinner hard with guests
Outstanding! Service and food. Will definitely come back again :)
We had a lovely anniversary dinner last night. Food was delicious. Portions were VERY generous and our server Steve was so lovely and friendly. Would highly recommend!
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.
Great choice of cuisine. Staff is amazing and the setting is fantastic.
Phenomenal food and service. Have been to the restaurant in a few occassions and always fantastic.
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.
Service was very good, the food was delicious and the atmosphere was relaxed and enjoyable.
We love BLU and are regulars! The food and service are awesome!
Our go to place for a good dinner and relaxing time!
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 dinner at Blu was excellent all around. We'll definitely go back next time we're in Toronto.
Our Server Laurel was really helpful and had a great personality .
First time goers for a birthday .
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.
I brought my daughter as a treat, we had a great time. The food, service and atmosphere were all outstanding.
Great outdoor patio, great food, great service! Love this place
Great food, nice and cozy atmosphere, loved the live music. We enjoyed the evening and were very happy with our experience.
Fantastic dinner and the service was excellent. Would definitely love to dine there again!
Everything was very good. Great ambience. Service was excellent.
I was a little disappointed we were the only table that had different chairs that were faux leather
The moment I sat there was a crouton or like on the ground that I had stepped on.
Wrong apps were delivered to our table
Took forever for someone to come take our dessert order
Not quite how I wanted date night to be like
Food and ambiance was great. Service was good. Overall we had a great experience and everyone loved it.
First time there, it was a beautiful restaurant with an excellent menu. Staff was great, covid protocols were followed and really enjoyed the food.
1st time visiting and was very pleasantly surprised. Great value for that part of town and lovely atmosphere. If you have a group of 6 or more book one of the booths in the Bar area, looks like lots of fun.
Great service, very attentive and professional, great food, salads were especially liked at our table, entrees were good, well presented. We were at a table inside and all of noted a cold draft at times. Fortunate to get “free” street parking almost directly in front of the restaurant, but otherwise parking is limited.
Went there for the first time, for a birthday, we had the pasta, food was okay. Definitely overpriced. Dessert we had tiramisu, for $14 it tasted like a mouthful of cocoa powder repeatedly. Hostess was very nice, server couldn't care less that it was our first time there or that we were celebrating a birthday. They couldn't even write happy birthday on the dessert plate or even wish the guest a happy birthday. We were seated at the back of the restaurant near the kitchen entrance, there was a draft coming from somewhere, we got so cold, we ended up wearing our jackets at the dinner table. Will not be back.
