    Excellent Octopus The old tuba tartare still the best-though this rendition not bai wish they’d revert back to the stellar unbeatable old version Halibut was decent so was stripped bass The bread basket that used to be so delicious at Moxie…not a forte for Blue But overall inching back towards good old Moxie standard Oh how we miss it

    Contacted the restaurant to change the number of Guest thru the app and to ask a a question about bringing in birthday cup cakes . I never received a reply from the establishment on either . I was able to change the number of guest but never got an answer on the cup cake after sending 3 messages . The manager of the restaurant told me that they never received the message and they don’t subscribe to an app on the stable website and yes I could bring the goods in but it’s a $20 plate fee . If the app works they just didn’t take the time to look at my request . And really at that point I would’ve thought there would not be a plate fee especially dining with six people and I’m sure the bill was over $400 I will not be going back there or recommended it to anyone else

    Blu the RestaurantResponded on December 10, 2021Hi Anonymous, I'm sorry there was a miscommunication on the messaging app via OpenTable. This was a new feature added that OpenTable didn't make us aware of and was automatically turned on. We didn't know to check it or that guests were using it. We do charge a cake fee of $3 per person so that did account for $18 for your party of 6. We also send out a complimentary dessert for celebrations, which I believe your party took home. I'm sorry this put a damper on your celebration.

    We were the only ones in the restaurant. One group at the bar. It was obviously quiet. Food was very good. Value was fair. Three scallops for $40 seemed a bit high for my entree. The service was perfect. Not overbearing because it was slow. Thank you for that.

    Our dining experience last night was great from start to finish. My husbands Shishito pepper appetizer was one of the best he has ever had, and my “Roasted Hen in the Woods” (mushrooms) starter was both unique and delicious. Our Branzino and Lamb Shank entrees were perfectly prepared, and our server, Hannah, was amazing! The “icing on the cake” was the fact that it was half price wine night!

    Have been here other times and had a much better experience. This time - meh! Service infrequent and impatient, slightly brusque. A dozen oysters with no identification or explanation. Scallops good but very small portion for $40! Cioppino thoroughly average (for $36). Again - not awful, just a let down given previous great experiences.

    I ordered ONE 8oz lobster tail as a side to a meal. They charged 42.00!!!!!! Forty-two dollars for an 8oz lobster tail. NEVER AGAIN

    Blu the RestaurantResponded on November 9, 2021Thank I'm very sorry about the price of the lobster. Over the course of the past year our cost for seafood- lobster, king crab, scallops, etc.- has increased dramatically, in some cases by more than double. That cost is unfortunately passed along to the consumer. There is little that we can do to control that and I'm sorry that it is more than you wanted to spend that evening. We are all hoping that issues with supply chain and labor get resolved sooner than later!

    We love Blu as it is a great place for a quality meal. Interesting drink suggestions nice wine selection for by the glass and pricing on bottles is reasonable. Tuesday is half off bottles so that makes for a great time to experiment. The scallops are my fav. Huge and well prepared. He samples his way around this menu. The pumpkin cheesecake was a winner. We love the booth tables in the bar if that area is mot crowded. Service is usual good but Friday night it was great. See you again soon.

    Server completely forgot about us. Took over 45 mins for us to get our food. My steak was served with no steak knife and because the server never came back to check on us I had to use a butter knife to cut my steak. Thank god we didn’t need refills on drinks because it wouldn’t have happened! Had to yell to get her attention to finally get the check. She never apologized and took another 20 minutes just to get us out of there. Food was very salty and not worth the price. The worst service we’ve ever had. What a disappointing sweetest day.
