DJ who (is also a bartender ) services the high top tables was great. He happily made our complicated drinks (twice) and was just a all around nice guy. Thanks. Love Blu Halo even though its a 30 minute drive. Just one note. Bring back the extra crispy oh so delicious truffle fries.

I would recommend with stipulations. I have had wonderful quite dinners here before, but was very disappointed in the noise level on this last visit. Also thought the Blue Halo was an upscaled venue but again disappointed that my dinner was overshadowed by the over casual bar crowd. I will think twice before going back and check to see if it is a night that local talent will be entertaining the bar flys.

Excessive wait times. Ignored, except when it was time for the bill. Kid's chicken tenders were burnt and had to be returned and other food was bad enough to kill your appetite. There were more service people than customers and the lack of customer service was obviously the reason why. Location was Tallahassee, Florida.

Consistency is key and Blu Halo is consistent. I have had experiences at other restaurants where depending on the chef that night my favorite menu item may not taste the same, not a Blue Halo they have been on point every time.

My father was in town and since I knew he was paying I chose here cause it's been on my list of restaurants to try. I somewhat felt my options were lacking, but I really enjoyed the flavor of the steak my dad got. I enjoyed my pork chops although maybe a little too much blueberry compote. Our biggest disappointment was the temperature of the food and the restaurant. I refused to send back my food, but you all did adjust the air quickly! That was great!

Oh and that carrot cake was everything. The bread pudding should come off the menu though. It was a cold cinnamon roll.

My wife and I love dining at the Blu Halo. Our experiences for both brunch and dinner have been excellent. They have an excellent selection of high end/hard to find bourbons and their food is nothing short of outstanding. If the bone in filet is available as a special, get it, it is off the charts! Buffets/special menus during holidays such as Mothers Day, Valentines Day, and New Years Eve are awesome. Service is excellent as well!

Honestly I was a bit underwhelmed by this place. I had really high expectations and they just kinda fell flat. I’ll start with the positives though: the drinks were amazing and the two sides we ordered (lobster Mac & cheese and truffle fries) were great as well. I had a strawberry martini (superb) and my boyfriend had a crown and ginger. However, I was underwhelmed by the ambiance, lighting was too bright in the dining area, tables were too close together and just felt crammed. As one last negative, which was a biggie for me, I ordered the Pasta Sicard with scallops and while the pasta was yummy, it was something I could have made at home, nothing special and it came with THREE scallops!!!!! For a $24.00 pasta dish...... I was assuming I’d get more scallops. This was upsetting. I will say that service was superb because we asked to be switched to a more private table that wasn’t so in the middle of it all and they did so without missing a beat, I appreciated that very very much. Our server was also amazing and she was very service oriented.

We were fortunate enough to get an intimate table in a corner. The food and service was wonderful! I highly recommend the Seafood tower if you’re a seafood lover. The “boss” (40oz steak) was cooked to perfection. Looking forward to my next visit so I can have another piece of the Blueberry cheesecake. Drinks........spectacular!!!

This was our second experience at blue halo and was on a Tuesday night that might have had something to do with the quality of the food . The service was excellent! However the food was not as good.
The deserts were the highlight of the meal this time. The cheese cake is amazing! The ice cream of the night was Caramel Bourbon Pecan and was unbelievably good

The broccoli tasted of lemon and only lemon has if someone had poured lemon juice over it as an afterthought, the steak was not well or evenly cooked but was good quality , the southern grouper is okay but I don’t think I will ordered it again.

Overall I still think Blue Halo is a great place to eat & they have a really great happy hour.

Delicious food and our server, Michael was fantastic. Prices are up there but the thing we liked least was how close the tables are. We sat on the outside of the circle so one of us was in the chair and one on the “booth”. Once they say people next to us there was zero privacy. I could hear both conversations clearly from the guests on either side of us.

The food and atmosphere were fantastic. My wife had the lobster mac which is a side and alone is a meal. I had the southern grouper and it was cooked to perfection. The wine list is very versatile where you didn't have to spend a fortune on a nice bottle. the GM Andy stopping by to check on us was a nice touch. Definitely will be back.

The food quality and uniqueness warranted the price range, however, the service staff are unpolished and slow for a restaurant aiming to compete in this high end price range. Everyone from the bus boy, hostesses, to the waiter could use some more detailed training to make the restaurant warrant the price range.

Heard so many good reviews about The Blu Halo and it didn't disappoint. I had the Southern Grouper Blackened |Smoked Bumpy Road Grits| Collards| Tobacco Onions. I'm a picky eater but ate all my food. Everything was well seasoned and tasty. My husband had the 14 oz. Boneless Angus Ribeye |Choice of Rosemary Potatoes, and Potato Au Gratin. He enjoyed every bite.
