Blue Halo is our absolute favorite to go to on a night where we want to unwind, enjoy amazing food, and run into friends to catch up. The food is always amazing and it is such a treat every time. Guaranteed to be amazing.

It would have been nice if the manager walked around and welcomed everyone instead of hanging out at the bar. Would have been nice if the waitress had offered bread, crackers, croutons anything with my soup. Shrimp and grits says it had sausage, no. Grits were chunks of partially ground corn. Not good. Probably will not return anytime soon.

We went out for a special Valentines dinner. We expect to pay a little more than other places. The meal was fabulous. The service was outstanding. But I do not recommend the cheesecake. It was a big disappointment. Tasted like ricotta. Other than that, it is great place to go for a special occasion.

Love having brunch at Blu Halo! We sat outside....heaters made it cozy, the one open area kept lots of fresh air circulating in, and tables are well spaced. Food and service were terrific, as usual!

Best brunch in Tallahassee!!! The food is delicious, the service is great, and the atmosphere is nice for a Sunday brunch with friends and/or family. Made a reservation, walked right in and was seated immediately.

The restaurant was great. The food took a while to come out even though it was a Saturday night but 30 minutes for the small portion was ridiculous. Overall 8.5/10

My three daughters and I had a dinner date and we had a great time at Blu Halo,,our entree and appetizers were awesome, beef tips with grilled smoked gouda cheese was awesome can't remember the name of the other appetizer but it was a nicely breaded shrimp on a tortilla shell also good, our entrees 10 oz ribeye steak cooked to a juicy medium well perfection the drinks was just as good something called a walk in the woods, old fashioned ,, our server was very helpful with explaining the menu and very prompt without drinks as well as our orders. We had a great time and will love to go back..

Sitting at the high-top seating was very uncomfortable...good idea but needs more cushioning...would prefer my feet to touch the floor...it’s not one size fits all seating. Waitress for the most part was good...seemed to get distracted...waited a little too long for drink refills and order taking.

A favorite place for brunch. We especially appreciate the ability to safely dine during Covid. Although we always ask for an outside table, this time the outside area was crowded and enclosed by a plastic barrier (due to its being relatively chilly. So, we opted for inside dining. We were the only diners in a back room, which was perfect.

Service was attentive. The food has always been very good.

Food and service were very good. However, it was difficult to have a conversation as party in other end of patio were so loud that all other diners could not enjoy their own table mates conversation.

Had reservations for outside and got there to be informed there was informed and outdoor party. I was very uncomfortable sitting inside as it was packed. Had grouper and it was undercooked and grits were cold. It has been hit or miss when dining here.

Everything was great. The only problem was the music was super loud when we came in. I still gave a 5-star review because when a member of our party brought it to the server's attention they lowered the volume. We weren't trying to be Karens about the situation but, it was so bad we couldn't hear people at our own table. I really appreciate the server, she was amazing!

I was highly disappointed. We’ve come to this restaurant several times. And this was one of the worst experiences we’ve had at any restaurant. first, the server, Zachary, didn’t even come to our table for at least 10 minutes, and when he did he did not introduce him self. He never told us the specials. I waited over 10 minutes to get a glass of wine when I finally did order. Rarely did the server check on us, and if he did, I would’ve had another glass of wine if I ever got asked. When the food came out, it was cold. There are many other higher end restaurants opening in the Tallahassee era, I will be going to those instead.
