The food was ok nothing great. They had pizza on the menu for take-out only (WTF!). The over booked and we had to wait 20 minutes for our table. The server was super nice. I don't think I'll be going there again.

Friendly. Food arrived. That’s about all I can say positively. Everything other than the bread was tasteless and less than good.

Ended up in Annapolis for the sailboat show Found this place on open table and reserved due to good reviews and location. Great variation in pasta dishes. Meal was well timed by the staff and the server checked back often during the meal. Very well priced. Will be back there during next year’s boat show!

Luna Blu was awesome, we arrived on a Saturday night via bicycle rickshaw, our table outside on the street was not available right away, but only a 5 minute wait. Jimmy Buffett cover band playing on West street, so yea, it was loud, but our kind of scene. Waitress was spot on with drinks (delicious) and food piping hot (yummy). I got their espresso martini and penne quarto formagie with shrimp, both excellent. Will go back next time in Annapolis

Very good food in a cozy little cafe setting. Service is friendly and the food very tasty. We had a bruschetta with crab to start (okay but not great) and cocktails. This place does serve a good martini with blue cheese olives. Spinach salad and Caesar salad were fresh and right sized. The 2 pieces of anchovy on my Caesar were disappointing but that’s really a reflection of my taste as I make a very flavorful Caesar myself. The entrees very nice, and the mixed scallop shrimp mushroom dish that my wife had was very good. The veal scallopini with crab has a terribly strong sauce that overwhelmed the crab completely and dominated the veal itself. But it was good and satisfying.
This is a good restaurant. It’s well run and the staff is very competent and attentive. I would certain try it again and try other items. They have an extensive menu with lots of options.

We used a Groupon for lunch for 2 to give the restaurant our first try. Luna Blu had a special Groupon menu, which made it so easy to order. There were many choices! The regular lunch menu was also offered so we could see the descriptions. We had trouble choosing but our selections were absolutely delicious!! We walked away with leftovers which were equally delicious warmed up later. Service was fantastic even though our server let us know they were short staffed as many places are. We had an excellent experience!

Received 20% off coupon at a pop up in downtown Annapolis so decided to check it out. Truthfully with all the choices in Annapolis might not be our first choice. Very kind wait staff. Very cool glasses for their Martini's and very good martinis. Food was so salty it was almost inedible. Salad was outstanding. Kind of a mixed review.

We were very excited to find this highly rated Italian restaurant in Annapolis and quickly made a reservation when we were planning to be in the area. We were quickly seated and drink orders taken, but after that service was slow, the arrival of drinks and food very slow. We weren’t in a hurry, but didn’t announce that. Others who came in later were served before us in all respects. Same waitress. The brie we shared was fine, tasty. However, it was the lackluster entrees and side veg that disappointed the most. The seafood in my butter/garlic pasta dish was so overcooked AND unseasoned that it was obvious it had been somehow steamed (overly) and then just added before serving. We’re talking lobster, shrimp, scallops. All overcooked and tasteless. My husbands veal pasta dish was a bit better, but nowhere near outstanding. The side veg we ordered was bland, asparagus and spinach. Just don’t get it. Given our experience, we won’t return.

We had dinner at Luna Blu before attending a play at Colonial Players. We were early but were accommodated with a smile. Service was attentive and flawless, food was wonderful. Only complaint is I’d prefer cloth napkins than paper.

We came at the recommendation of my daughter in law..she’s always my go -to for food. Enjoyed the pizza/wine pairing. I had fig/goat cheese/balsamic with Pinot noir, my hub had the eggplant pizza. Both were extraordinary. The often pedestrian watermelon salad was wonderful.
Like many restaurants, service has been slow. But the food was great, the owner Erin answered all our questions and couldn’t have been more gracious.
If I lived closer, I’d be there every week.
Also - location. It’s not on the crazy-busy-loud Main Street. Quiet location, but very walkable from downtown (even for us well-over-60’s.)

Outstanding as always. Food was fantastic. Mussels with saffron for appetizer; Fettucini Scampi and Ravioli as entrees. Delicious. We love Luna Blu. Felt a little rushed but I think that was just our server’s pace. Will be back - it’s one we really look forward to!

We were from out of town and made a reservation for my birthday. I read so many great reviews. My husband and I arrived on time. The hostess was rude. We saw our server, but were ignored for at least 15 minutes even though she walked by us 5 or 6 times. Mary ,finally came over to ask if we would like anything from the bar. It took about another 15 minutes and we had not received our drink order.
We advised the server and hostess we were leaving.
Their response was "Ok, whatever!".
We went to Middleton's and had a wonderful meal!

Luna Blu always delivers!!! Fantastic food and service. Their 4 course meal is a great deal. 1/2 price wine (great selection, too) on Wednesday! And we love Dining Under the Stars and eating outside during the warmer months! Luna Blu is a must if you are in Annapolis and we will be back again and again!

It was beautiful dining under the stars on West st. However, Our service was good at first for the ordering then getting our Appetizer, drinks and salad. Once we had those things, our 8:30pm reservation (seated by 8:35pm) ended up having us there until 10:30pm. (I recall that we had to be done by 10:45pm as they were going to open up the road at 11:00pm). Our entrée took along time to come, we ran out of a drink (we had a pitcher of water), & no napkins. After eating supper, we got a great recommendation for a dessert choice, but weren't asked if we wanted anything else to drink. The food was great to amazing, slow slow service/ slow food prep and we were there for 2 hours then were being rushed since they took so long. It was a nice atmosphere and overall I had a good time with my wife.
