Went for brunch and had the eggs benedict. Presentation was lovely and food was very good although the benedicts were a little on the small side. I would like to return and try dinner.

Everything was delicious. They had a special that night with lamb but we asked if we could have the special made with a petite fillet instead and they readily agreed and it was absolutely delicious. That 850 salad is amazing!!

Brunch at the Blu Halo is always a favorite for my intergenerational family. As we always share, I learned that I will have a more difficult time choosing the next time. Everyone got something different this time.
I would appreciate if the music were turned down though. It was very hard to hear our conversation, and yes, I have hearing aids.

This was my family's 5th visit to the restaurant this year. Our visit was for celebrating my wife's birthday so we brought her mother along.
The food and service is usually jam up but this time all of the prepared "meats" were heavily seasoned and quite salty. This is the only negative part of the visit otherwise the visit was great.
Tell the cook to lighten up on the seasoning.
This does not change our general opinion about Blue Halo. We will be back.

I took a friend to brunch on Sunday. The service was very attentive and fast and did not rush us. My lower rating reflects the quality of food relative to the price. The yolks of the poached egg were hard in the Eggs Benedict and the pieces of Canadian back were scrawny and tough, and the hollandaise sauce was thin and definitely made from a powder mix. My friend didn't eat most of her omelet or home fries and didn't comment on her food, likely because she was too polite to complain about a meal I was treating her to. There are better options in Tallahassee for a nice brunch out.

We love Blue Halo but I’m giving only four stars because we made a reservation well ahead in advance to celebrate a birthday; when we got there we had to wait another thirty minutes. What’s the point of a reservation then?

Birthday . Server was excellent. Very attentive. It was quiet because there were very few people. In the past it is very noisy with large tables. Drinks seemed a little pricey. Food was excellent, especially the steak quesadilla. I’ll get the lobster one next time.

Food was delicious and had we dined inside, we may have had a better experience. We opted to eat outside because we had our small puppy. There were hornets flying around the entire time. One member of our party was stung. We did not get to enjoy the meal or conversation because everyone was worried about getting stung. I’m not just talking about a couple of hornets. There were numerous ones. The server didn’t seem to care and seemed annoyed when we asked to move to another table away from bushes in hopes it would help (it didn’t). I had a carrier for the puppy. Given the situation, the staff should have offered to seat us inside if I put the puppy in the carrier. Disappointing experience to say the least.

The food was great and our service was also prompt and pleasant. Unfortunately the tables for two are so tiny that we struggled not to knock things over. The main reason I hesitate to go back is the very loud and unpleasant music. The soundtrack was heavy (pun intended) on repetitive booming bass. We actually rushed through dinner to be able to leave because the music was so oppressive.

I think it is time for Halo to rethink their plates. While it might be sheik to have those skinny plates, it's not when my eggs benedict comes sliding off the muffin and right onto the table. I normally order the omelets and never had an issue, but this time decided to try the eggs benedict were enough. Luckily there was enough to even after loosing one of the eggs. LOL! .

Service in the main dining area once again was superb! Love the happy hour prices for martinis. Usually order the small filet and chef accommodated by adding no additional salt. One in our party ordered the new barbecue ribs and they were outstanding and tender. (huge portion of ribs) Also ordered at our table were the huge sea scallops with an 850 Salad. Excellent choices. I plan to try the scallops next time.

I ordered the ribeye medium well with potato au gratin and both were kind of burnt, so I returned the gratin for smashed potatoes that was really good. I also ordered a blu halo cosmo drink that was alright. Overall it was an okay experience, but would have been better if my food wasn’t burnt. My partner really liked his ribeye though. We do plan on coming back though.
