Pleasant experience with well prepared food and attentive staff. High end all the way around.
We went for my boyfriend's birthday on a Wednesday evening. It was a quiet and intimate setting.
I had the salmon and it was great, but my boyfriend's pasta in his lobster dish was undercooked and too al dente. They took it back and the chef made more and included extra lobster as well. It was very kind and they comped the dish from our bill as well.
I had written on my reservation that it was his birthday, and after our mains, our server brought a tiramisu with "happy birthday" written in chocolate sauce on the plate.
Very nice touch to a top notch meal. Would recommend for birthdays/celebrations!
Great ambiance, tasteful decor, impeccable service and very good food! Need I say more?! Highly recommended for special occasion or just a night out.
Fantastic food. Tasty!
Fantastic people. Friendly!
Worth all money!
Very nice suprise! first time there, was visiting from out of town and really enjoyed the whole experience...will definitly go back
Love the place and food and the service is very good and friendly
This was the second time we visited Blu and we were again very pleased with the food and service. We highly recommend it!
I took my wife there because she was craving Italian food, but she didnot fully understand the menu. However, the staff were super kind as he proposed than the Chef can design the plate according to what she’s craving. Guess what, she did not like the food but she was in love with it.
One of the best restaurants in terms of fine dine, budget friendly restaurant
5 star all the way!
Food is good, and the staffs are friendly.
Very quiet environment.
The live music was great.bthw service was great as well .. food was nice as well ...
Had a lovely anniversary dinner. Food and service and extra touches made the experience. Would definitely return.
Very friendly servers, great food, consistent in all aspects
We went for a New Years Eve dinner which was $125/plate! We made reservations for 10pm, & we were not seated until 11pm!! A whole hour later! For the money we spent, the service was horrible! Very disappointed with majority of the staff who were NOT HELPFUL. There was one gentleman (forgot his name) who was taking care of us well. One of the other hosts was terribly RUDE & kept walking by us several times with no updates & did not care to serve us.
My husband and I booked NEW YEARS EVE at the restaurant and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The food was excellent and the atmosphere outstanding. A great way to bring in the new year !!!
Service was slow but could be due to very busy in New Year’s Eve. Small portions but it was very delicious and with the nye set menu and courses your were full. Would recommend and would go back to again
Was not pleased.
Amazing service and food. Very impressed with how fast everything came and how we were never empty on water.
Everyone is so sweet there, recommend 100% would definitely go back
Although the food was great, we felt rushed. When you go out for a night out in a non-fast food restaurant, you don’t expect to be finished in one hour. Everything jept coming, one after another. Also, although the restaurant was mostly empty another couple was put right beside us (separated only by a sheer curtin). We could hear and see them, annoying!
Simply consistently outstanding!
SUPERLATIVE! Delicious food, prepared, and presented in an upscale manner, yet very homey and accepting of all persons and experiences that people bring. Wonderful! Go back often when I want to be treated special. Across from Four Seasons but a world of quality better, Gift a special person, your family, or better still, simply treat a friend - go to Blu. Never, never, disappoints!
Fancy, not the most modern or eloquent design. Food was good but not exceptional for the price in relation to competing restaurants.
First time there. Will definitely return. Nice place, great menu, food and ambiance.
The live guitar player was amazing. Grilled calamari and the gnocchi with wild boar were amazing.
Decided to check this restaurant out with a bunch of friends because of its positive reviews and location. Great food and good service. Bottles of wine on the pricey side - wish there was more choice by the glass. Entertainment - young guy singing top 40 tunes was just that - okay. As we sat close to the performer - it was sometimes hard to hear. Would def go back.
We had a brilliant night! The waiters were very informative and efficient
I took my sister here for her 21st birthday and I was nervous because she works at an Italian restaurant. We ordered the octopus to share and it was delicious. The different colors and flavors on the plate worked beautifully together. The bread was amazing as it was so light but bursted with flavour from the oil. My sister chose the ravioli and I chose the linguini. Both dishes were beautifully plated and tasted amazing. The pasta was perfectly cooked and seasoned nicely. I will definitely be returning.
Excellent food and ambiance. Thoroughly enjoy my time at Blu every time
I enjoyed myself, and my date, she, was very happy with the idea.
This was our second visit to Blu, the first being very memorable. This time, our party of three enjoyed the soup du jour (leek and mushroom), the special lasagna, the filet of beef , and the wild boar dish. Everything was simply delicious, served with courtesy and efficiency. One of our party, who had the wild boar thought it was one of the best dishes he had ever had.
Simply excellent, and highly recommended.
We were there 2 weeks before Christmas, so areas of the restaurant were closed off by sliding walls, making the restaurant less attractive that it probably is at other times.
amazing food and some vegan options - the squash was the excellent! would highly recommend.
My only negative comment is that we went for a group work dinner and it was quite noisy so I would not recommend it for a work dinner.
A great night ! Fantastic service and great food.
Music is playing on the weekend which is too loud and causes everyone to talk louder. Other than that everything is 5stars
Food was great. A little pricey but great night.
I would recommend based on prior experiences from a couple years ago. The most recent experience there was definitely not the best. Service was super slow and cold. Food was really good thought.
My husband and I went there to celebrate our union in marriage, all staff was very attentive and the owner went beyond, sending us a glass of champagne on the house. The food was great, the music was very mellow and romantic. They provided us with a table right beside the live music which made the evening even more romantic. Overall, I am very great full, with the serevice. I will definitely go back and recommend this place.
Food was excellent. Service was confused- waiters were confused on who had ordered what. No coffee fill up was offered- had to chase waiter for the bill. After the meal seemed like all our waiters disappeared. Seemed like they were trying to rush us out.
But the food was very good. Wine pricing was somewhat over average.
Excellent service - our friends loved it. Found the pasta dishes a bit bland but ok.
