    The service felt a little rushed and we were asked if we planned on getting entrees? Which was pretty funny to us, but nonetheless why was that asked? Anyways. The lobster roll again was mediocre, simply because you’re putting a clump of lobster into a bun that it doesn’t fit on. How do you expect that to be enjoyable? I’ve never been served a roll where I physically cannot eat it or enjoy it because it’s on bread it doesn’t belong on. My friends felt the Thai chili was a bit overwhelming for the salmon, but that’s opinion. Everyone takes spice differently. The vodka penne my friend thought was great, the appetizers were great as well. The view is exceptional, atmosphere is perfect if people at the bar aren’t obnoxious. Only gripe is just please for the love of god change the bread for the lobster roll so that you can eat it together rather than eating it off the top like a barbarian. Please, just change it. Everything else besides our presumptuous server was great. Really loved those scallops. :) would recommend! (Especially the outdoor seating like really, it’s amazing)

    So, I have a food allergy/sensitivity to Dairy. I ordered the chicken wrap and asked the waitress to leave the cheese out. She said she would and she actually came back to confirm she had told the chef. Good job there! Above and beyond(I think her name was Adrianna). But….when almost done eating the wrap I noticed that there were pieces of cheese in the wrap. I quickly took the enzyme pills that I always carry with me and notified our waitress about the cheese. Needless to say she was surprised and said she would notify whoever. This was my first time eating at Blu. It’s a cute location with the deck by the marina but honestly I don’t see a reason to return if the kitchen cannot respect food allergies or sensitivities(ie inability to digest dairy).

    Service was great, food was not. I have been to Blu on the Water many times and have never been disappointed with the food until 6/22/22. Hopefully, it was just a mishap and things will be better next trip.

    It was great except we made a reservation outside for Fathers Day and it was cold outside. We couldn’t be moved inside and we were on the deck. It would have been nicer if they had heaters outside and we could have stayed longer.

    From the start the service was fantastic. The servers and staff, all young and energetic, were also very understanding about accommodating our baby and dealing with some food sensitivities. We sat outside - the view was great and the food was awesome. It came out fast for a busy night so all in all it was a phenomenal evening with our family

    There was some plastic wrap in my chicken wrap. I advised the waitress and she was kind enough to take the wrap off the check. I've had the Cali wrap before and it was outstanding yesterday not so much. I will try something else next time but I love this place.

    The fish and chips are good, as always, and so were the mussels casino. The Caesar salad really isn't, as in most restaurants these days. But the overall menu is greatly reduced, there are no longer parking valets during the week, and the live music in the tent is loud and not great, to be kind. The setting is wonderful, the hostesses and service are excellent.

    I remember my friends and I feeling like things were “off” last summer at BLU … tunes were tough, we get it … which is why we gave it another chance. And I was so very happy to see that the service and quality of the food have returned to normal, when we went this past weekend! Every drink, app and entree was devoured. The servers were friendly and worked as a team like a well-oiled machine this time around. Kudos! We’ll be back again soon!!!
