My girlfriend and I went here for a date night since the indoor seating has reopened and honestly the experience was phenomenal. We started with the tuna tartare which was to die for (I absolutely recommend). My girlfriend had the squash ravioli, which again was amazing, and I had the special for the night which was beef short rib and everything turned out so well. At the end of the night we finished off with espresso, the blu chocolate cake , and the tiramisu and we finished every bite despite being completely stuffed at this point. The food was perfect and the staff were polite, professional, and quick so all in all it was a wonderful night.
We will definitely be going to Blu Ristorante again!

I was a regular at the old location. Food and service is still second to none. However sadly the patio was very loud. Almost impossible to hear my guests.

We celebrated my birthday at Blu the other day. I can say this was one of the more memorable dinners me and my family had in a long time. The reservation, confirmation, hostess, service and of course, the food, everything was absolutely great!! From the drinks, the complimentary focaccia with slight spicy olive oil, to the appetizers (a delicious and generous beef carpacio and an original tuna tartar), to the main dishes (the best rack of lamb I ever had, an excellent seared ahi tuna and two braised beef cheeks gnocchi that were literally melting in your mouth) to finally the deserts (a surprise complimentary tiramisu for the "birthday dad" another tiramisu and Blu chocolate cake) everything was absolutely spot on, right portions and amazing balance of flavours.
I can't recommend highly enough Blu for anyone that wants a fine dining experience, be it for a special event or just to have delicious dinner!!

If you’re burring make sure you type in their address as they’ve changed locations and that hasn’t been updated on Uber’s end. Food and service were great, wish the menu was easier to understand. Overall would definitely go back.

Dinner for four
Very loud initially but as the tables next to us cleared the noise abated
The food and service were excellent
The veal chop was superb
Wine list is over priced I think
