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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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!

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.

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.

We had such a great experience at Blü. We went early, because of scheduling issues, so we had the place to ourselves for few minutes. We were spoiled with great service and then filled full of amazing food. I'm glad I picked lighter fare so I could do 4 courses--each one was amazing.

We went in for a Sunday night family dinner to try something new. The food was OK. Truffle carpaccio and tuna tartar was really good but the antipasti was way over priced. $10 per item for cheeses and salami I can get in my local Metro grocery store. The best part of this dish was the crostini that came with it. $10 warm olives where three of them were big but the rest were the size of peas. That was annoying to eat. Cornish hen was ok, lamb was ok but the sweet potato gnocchi was really decadent. Swimming in garlic butter sauce. Overall, I felt I was paying for the Yorkville location over the food.
