The food was absolutely amazing! The ahi tuna tartare and pumpkin ravioli were standouts but everything we ordered was cooked to perfection and beautifully plated.
Our server was very attentive and friendly. The overall ambience was perfect as well, very romantic and calm.
Will definitely be returning
The food has unfortunately gone way downhill in Covid.
it is amazing, and I love all the food I had tonight. The only upset thing is that the seared tuna sold out as I arrive, I thought I have already arrived early enough.
Very polite staff but the food was a disappointment. Apart from the beet salad that was delicious, everything else was not good at all. The desert in particular was horrible.
beautiful restaurant, impeccable customer service and tasty food.
Superb service and food. Great wine selection.
wonderful cocktails and wines
food is consistently outstanding
I was on the second floor overlooking the main flloor getting a look at the magnificent chandelier.
I had the Artisan Lettuce Salad and the Linguine with Clam and Seafood Special and Tiramisu.
All the food was great the service is excellent with many staff ready to help.
Great ambience and music
Service was very good. I found my main course not to be very hot, and portions quite small for some items. Drinks very expensive.
However, overall we had a great time and did not feel rushed. They were very generous with desserts as we were celebrating birthdays, an anniversary and an engagement !
I would recommend this restaurant.
Great spot for informal but special dining. Took staff from work and instantly everyone was impressed with the atmosphere. Cleverly spaced out tables, and two levels with open air really adds to the ambience.
If you love Italian food, you will be impresses. I had the pasta special, others the sirloin and others risotto, all good sized portions; leftovers to take home!
Service was delightful, prompt and accommodating as we had to downsize from 6 to 4 and the new table was for 4, no empty seats. We also were a bit late, due to traffic/uber but were not at all rushed even though we were the first sitting.
I'm thrilled this restaurant is close to work as it will be a go to in the future!
Mediocre, over-priced food. A fine atmosphere and decent service. Good wine.
The food was amazing for the prices. The staff were all amazing especially Laurel. Will definitely come back.
Everything was splendid.
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.
