Love your patio! Great food & service
Excellent food and service
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.
I had excellent food and service for my first time at Blu. I will go back.
This seems like a good venue for parties as well
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.
We went to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday, we liked the attention and the food was excellent the carpaccio I recommend it is delicious, the atmosphere a bit calm but not bad, we will return again !!
Two birthdays. We sat on the covered patio. Excellent. Highly recommended.
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.
The staff were very nice, and the food was great. Had a great time.
Good was great and service as well!
Great food with really good portions!
Definitely dining here again!
...the blue lights are subtle
Great pandemic safe patio with excellent ambiance and warm. We will go back gain!
Was a super nice visit, enjoyed every bit of our food. I think we mentioned it was our anniversary once and they remembered and wrote it on our dessert plate!! It was so sweet!
duck was a little dry, and tuna tar tar could use more seasoning
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.
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.
The food was amazing. Will definitely recommend to friends.
Excellent experience- celebrated a birthday and anniversary - staff was amazing and food was superb!👍🏼
Really nice patio, food was delicious, our waiter was really nice and it actually wasn’t that expensive
I find during the Pandemic regardless of your location a little too
Expensive re the portions provided
great food and service. the bartenders did a great job with the dessert cocktails as well!
Wonderful experience, I would absolutely be returning ! Good wine, great courses that pair well
First time in the new venue - outside is clearly nicer than inside these days
Great atmosphere love the blue lights. Delicious food, tasty drinks wonderful wait staff
My girlfriend and I were celebrating our anniversary…we had heard great reviews and recommendations from a numerous amount of people. When we were sat down we felt like it was extremely rushed…it was a bit uncomfortable. Overall we had a delicious apps and main…
Lovely time, service was excellent, food was great, atmosphere very nice at the bar.
Overall, we had a good time and the food was pretty good.
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!
