Everything was perfect. We took out-of-town guest and everyone raves about how good it was from the appetizers to desserts. The manager helped us pair wine with dinner. We felt “special.” We are going back in 2 days for brunch. Looking forward to it.

My husband and I selected the Blue Halo to celebrate our 39th wedding anniversary. A friend recommended this restaurant and it was indeed a great choice for our celebration.
After being seated in a cozy booth, our server, Mary, arrived and provided great service during our delicious meal.
She was very familiar with the menu and offered great suggestions.
Overall, it was a wonderful dining experience.

Our group of 7 ranged in age from the late 20’s to the late 60’s and we all had a wonderful time. Service was friendly, knowledgeable and timely. The owner, Andy, greeted us at the door and checked in on our table midway through dinner. Without exception, all spoke highly of their meals. The atmosphere allowed us to have great table conversation without a lot of competing background noise. Overall a wonderful evening.

For the high price, the food was just ok. The fly in the restaurant made it difficult to enjoy the meal. Service was good and quick since there were only 2other tables in the restaurant. Might try for brunch but will not be back for dinner.

Our Anniversary. An excellent decision. Our dinner was a satisfying experience with great steaks and fine service. Not exactly a quiet place but that’s not the style of the place and it wasn’t too loud. We enjoyed our meal (try the Carrot Cake if you want to help your cardiologist pay off his college debt).

Today was Father's Day, and The Blu Halo created a wonderful brunch experience for its patrons. There were food stations everywhere, service was exceptional, we wanted for nothing, and they had every food option imaginable. My hubby was pleased with my restaurant choice to honor him on this special day. My family and friends are hosting my 50th birthday dinner there next week because they hear me rave about the place all the time.

Went for the Father's day Brunch. I felt bad for all the people who sat down, found out it was brunch only after unwrapping their napkins and sipping their waters only to get up and leave via a side exit. We had a leisurely brunch with a pretty good buffet. The breakfast breads (mini muffins etc.) were a little disappointing. My wife has a bad shrimp off the seafood "bar" so they could have done something there other than just take it with an "Oh, Really?" A quick sorry about that would not have been fatal.

As usual the food was delicious and the wait staff great. My only disappointment was they are not longer having happy hour on weekends. Other than that everything was terrific. All four of us had something different, the filet, Petite Chateau, ribeye, and Triple P chicken and all was happy. Deserts are also very delicious. Also, chef was very accommodating when I wanted to change up my side.

My experience at the Blu Halo was exceptional! We had a reservation for Sunday brunch. Prices are very reasonable. The ambience was quiet, pleasant and very welcoming! We were seated immediately and our server was very pleasant. She answered all of our questions and kept our classes refilled. FYI: they have bottomless mimosas. These were very strong. The food was delicious. I got the French toast, Turkey Sausage and Potatoes. In addition, since it was my birthday I was able to get a complimentary desert. Overall, I highly recommend The Blu Halo and will be back!

We had wonderful food off of the appetizer and side dishes menu....lots of great flavors. Good wine list with many price options. Our waitress was outstanding and anticipated every need. The only issue, and this is not the restaurant's fault, per se, is that we were seated next to a birthday party of about 25 people...including about 8 children under the age of 10 (and one under the age of 2). The parents tried to keep things under control, but some of the kids were not ready or able to behave appropriately in a nice restaurant like this, and they diminished the experience of the other patrons.

We were seated at the end of a row of tables for two with all the traffic passing close to my back.
Our main course was excellent but we were very disappointed with the bread pudding. It was too dry and badly needed a sauce of some kind. The service was excellent.

I dined here with my husband the other day for our anniversary and it was the most exceptional meal we have had in Tallahassee. We decided to sit at the bar where Terry, Montana and Clarisse took exceptional care of us. To start, we shared two delicious appetizers, the Ahi Tuna Poké and the "Dive into the Blu." Then, for the main course, we shared the Pork Chop, which I'm convinced is the hidden gem on the menu, and the 22oz bone in ribeye, lobster Mac and Cheese, and creamed corn, paired with the fabulous Rombauer Zinfandel. For dessert we shared the carrot cake and the blueberry cheesecake where we tried some of their specialty cocktails including the Grasshopper and the Espresso Martini. By far the best food, cocktails, and service in town. Will definitely be back for another incredible dinner and would recommend to anyone.
