We met our son and fiance for our 30th Anniversary dinner. They arrived before us and were treated like underage children. When they asked for a drink menu the server replied "we don't have a non-alcohol drink menu." Even upon showing their identification the server did not come back to the table to take their order.
When we arrived we were also met with clear animosity from the server. 20 minutes later we asked for the manager and again were met with rude comments about their "liquor license he would like to keep." Seems none of the staff knew that our guest's vertical driver's license, along with her DMV issued paper work stating her new license was in process, was a valid form of identification. She had used the combination several times the previous week when at other work related dinners and out with friends - all with no issue. Only after insisting they all look up the liquor laws did they finally agree they should be served.
We received NO apology from the manager or original server. We did however receive a new server who was very professional. However, there are too many great alternatives to go back again.
The menu of interesting and special entrees seems to be shrinking every time we visit, the menu is trending towards a largely pasta based menu, which is a pity. The service was trying to rush through, while we made it clear we did not want to be rushed, nor were there any other tables coming in after us, so it was unclear why the rush.
Unexpected treasure in downtown Redmond. Worth the visit. Fabulous food, great service and gelato to die for.
We are foodies.
Ordered the duck and a Caesar salad. Duck was badly rendered, fatty and like chewing rubber...not even a good flavor. Caesar salad came completely limp. My duck was $36 and my Caesar salad was $10, I believe.
Great place. Good food and very nice people! Enough said
We eat here often and have enjoyed every time. Our server our last two times - Rachel - has been great at helping us choose wines to go with the meals and very gracious to my young teens. We may actually start requesting her in the future!
very nice setting with comfortable atmosphere. food was top quality. will definitely go back again.
As a frequent visitor here my wife and I have made this our local go to restaurant. Our last visit was to celebrate an anniversary dinner together. We’ve not been disappointed with the food, service or setting. Great appetizers and entree dishes and a great wine list and bar.
Fabulous service, wonderful food and drink
Outstanding service, food, overall experience. We will definitely be back. Our server was amazing. She was attentive, flexible, sensitive to our needs and food restrictions and absolutely exactly what I would ask for in the best service imaginable. The food, drinks, desserts. . ..all were impeccable. Thank you so much!
Very knowledgeable and professional server.
The meal and service were excellent, but the table next to us was very load!
It was Seattle Restaurant week & I’d been wanting to try out Blu Sardinia for a while. What a great choice! The food was excellent, our server friendly & helpful. We had a really lovely evening.
We’ll be back!
Restaurant week menu very good and the quality of the food, service did not disappoint
I guess they don’t acknowledge a special occasion mentioned in the reservation. The person who brought us to our table was very nice but our waitress took no interest nor cared, just wanted to know what we wanted and that was that. Food lacked flavor, so I had no interest in dessert.
Seattle Restaurant Week Spring 2019. It was a lunch splurge/break from work, for me and glad I did it. Lovely modern decor with a warm and friendly and efficient server. I chose the creamy buratta with olives, artichoke, and toasted Ciabatta. That imported burrata was amazing and perfectly creamy. For the entrée I chose the Malloreddus bolognese. I would have preferred the bolgnese a bit more meaty and savory in flavor (it tended toward sweet), but the pasta was absolutely perfect and the bolognese was actually a good fit for a fresher lighter lunch. I look forward to coming here again!
I thought the food was okay, nothing amazing. I had the risotto and ensalata and gelato. I have had much better. My husband had the chicken parm which was good but a little disappointed there wasn't pasta accompanying it but instead salad. The ambiance was good, a bit loud though, we couldn't hear each other talking when the table right beside us was laughing and talking.
All though a bit heavy the food was delicious. The waitress was the best ever. Will be going back.
Good! Great wine selection! Good pizza!
Server was attentive for our party of 6. Drinks and appys were brought to our table timely. Kitchen accommodated several "customizations" which makes me think they are a scratch kitchen (no preprepared meals). Slightly pricey, but still reasonable. I would go back, but after I try some of the many other (also) great restaurants in the area.
Alas: this was the first time I've been disappointed with Blu Sardinia. It's one of the only places I eat when I come visit Seattle, where I have called home for 28 years. Being a chef/ayurvedic practitioner myself, I am extra mindful about calling ahead and speaking with the chef before I visit a restaurant-- learning about the level of attention paid to the finest ingredients, from the spices, particularly to the oils used in cooking and then how willing they are to pivot, based on our preferences in food combining, etc. I drive directly there from the airport so I can nourish as closely as possible to how I cook for myself at home. Lunches have always been exceptional. This time, I didn't feel as if the server, Michele, hear us. The salmon was overcooked (has always impeccably done, medium rare, in the past), there were a few ingredients on the plate that I had specifically asked to have removed/replaced. The pace of his order-taking seemed rushed, making it noticeable that he was busy with other tables and perhaps not taking in the specifics of our preferences. I will rethink when/if I eat here again, based on that. I know that my reviews are challenging to be 100% forthcoming in, given that no place is truly like my kitchen. I will certainly try it again to give it another chance, but it's a steep price point for overcooked, wild salmon and then having to pick out the spinach that I have extreme sensitivity to. Kind thanks for asking for the review. My friends really enjoyed their meals and their fish was cooked to perfection. Particularly the halibut.
Such a great restaurant. Amazing service and really good food. Very quite and nice atmosphere. Will definitely go back.
Tables close together, loud. Food is just ok at this price point.
Delicious dinner and very friendly service. Prices are a touch high for portion sizes but an excellent experience overall.
This continues to be one of our favorite Eastside places. It used to be a pretty quiet, so much so we worried about it staying open...but that's been a while. This place has been discovered and it's been pretty busy. You'll want a reservation for dinner. We ended up in an overflow room recently because it was packed downstairs --- no compromise on the service or food, but the place is that busy now. The food is consistently great, we've had everything and never been disappointed. I really like their half bottles of wine, they're very high quality choices if you don't want a whole bottle of wine. You'll see the owner around quite a bit and some of the staff we have seen for a few years now. This remains one of our go-to places for a nice dinner or a quiet and nice lunch.
Our first time at this restaurant. We would definitely come again. The food and service were very good. My only complaint was that my soft drink was flat.The portion size and overall quality of the food were quite good.
Blu Sardinia has become one of our favorite Eastside restaurants. Service and food are consistently top-notch. My husband's porkchop was amazingly tender and flavorful, and my eggplant parmesan was a delicious, fresh presentation, light on the cheese and sauce that typically buries this dish. We'll keep returning!
Always great to come back to Blu Sardinia. Great food, great relaxing atmosphere and nice evening.
The food was excellently prepared, and exceeded expectations. My friend loved her menu choice, and we both agreed on overall impressions. Noise level was a little high, and our wait person seemed very busy with other tables.. Menu choices and quality were very good.. Ambience was relaxed and unpretentious. Go try it!! Thomas
Great food and service! A little loud ... price in line with caliber of food.
Great experience! Tasty food, very good service, as always! Thank you for making my birthday celebration perfect!
Went there with 2 friends on a Sat evening. Awesome food. Grilled octopus was very tender and grilled to perfection. Shared short rib ravioli and special of the day - pork cheeks with polenta. Ravioli was home made with tons of short rib stuffing. Outstanding flavor! Pork cheeks wasn't anything special but polenta really made the dish. Service was excellent and very attentive. All of us were impressed and will be definitely going back.
Love this place ❤️ We like to come here on Friday nights for date night. Summertime is also nice to come here.
Everything was outstanding, particularly, our server, Alicia.
Have eaten in this Redmond neighborhood gem many times. The food is always creative and delicious. You can count on the various staples on the menu, but they are always cooking up some wonderful specials. Menu prices are reasonable and the wine list is varied and reasonable. The beef rib ravioli is to die for as are all of the desserts.
Great hidden secret in Redmond. Happy hour is must as well!
My wife and I had a excellent meal at Blu Sardinia with very good service and a nice atmosphere. We ordered the scallop special and it was absolutely fantastic. We also ordered a side of Brussels sprouts and they were just fantastic. It is an odd location in a former coffee shop location at a strip mall, but once you step inside you are transported to Italy.
We have been to Blu Sardinia at least 12 times and this meal was outstanding. One of the best. Our server was great. Not in your face but attentive. I thought the duck special with marionberry sauce and asaparus wrapped in prosciutto was outstanding. The perfect mix of sweet, salty and savory. The merlot the server recommended went very well. My husband's scallops were cooked to perfection which mos restaurants can't get right. Thank you for a lovely evening!
Everything was wonderful as usual!
This is the second time dining at Blue (first review) and I give it rave reviews in every category. More than anything else, the service was over the top good! Our best Valentines Day ever.
