We dined at Blue Halo for the first time to enjoy Mother's Day brunch. It was amazing and we will be dining there regularly in the future. Food was outstanding, the service was fabulous and there was not a single thing we would recommend any improvement on.

Service was disappointing. It took 15 minutes before someone came to ask if we wanted drinks. And for that I had to go to the hostess where 4 young ladies were standing and talking. After placing the order for drinks. Mimosa, bloody Mary and a sweet tea. 6 minutes later we were told that they sweet tea had to be brewed. So another wait of 7-8 minutes until all the drinks came. We did order some appetizers which was absolutely needed because the wait of 40 minutes until we got out food.

Also was surprised that the menu on line was much better than the limited menu they offered for this mother's day brunch.

Food was good and I am sure this was not the waitress' fault. Something was wrong as service has never been this bad. Seriously disappointing.

The food was Mediocre but the ambiance and service was great. My friends pork chop wasn’t cooked all the way and she had to send it back twice and the food was salty. However the drinks were very good. I have always wanted to go to Blue Halo but now that I have gone and got the experience I won’t run to go back

The food was very good. The server was friendly and helpful. This was the first time we had been in a restaurant in Tallahassee for over a year. It was a great experience and the live music was exceptional.

We were a party of seven for our son’s graduation. The staff was excellent, accommodating our party with a more private area. Great service, delicious food and lots of memories! When we’re back in Tallahassee, this is our new special occasions spot.

We had reservations for brunch and upon arrival were seated and then promptly ignored for 20 minutes. We flagged down someone to request a server. That person was the most awkward, unresponsive server ever- when he finally brought our food out he spilled our son’s fries into his lap. No words, no apologies, just walked away and then brought another order of fries after we were done eating. The food- it was mediocre, eggs over cooked, bun too hard (stale?) and breakfast potatoes were dry. And it was absolutely freezing in the restaurant! Best thing about this place is the decor. If that’s all you care about, go to Blu Halo. We will not be back.

Reservation at 9. Ordered appetizers and then waited until 10:30 for dinner to be served. Very loud. Unfortunately, most places in Tallahassee seem to be have poor service and incompetent help.
I guess no one cares.

We had a great experience dining here for my daughter’s 22nd birthday. We were happy at the table the farthest from the live music. Had we been sat any closer to the band we probably would have left without eating, because it was so loud for the small space. The food and drinks were spot on!!

It was my boyfriend's birthday, we wanted something upper-scale but not too expensive. The atmosphere was really nice, and there was live music! He got the Filet and I got the "Triple P Chicken". Delicious! Our service was great, I wish I remembered her name so I could give her a shout out. All in all would go again.

The food was excellent. I had the chili lime shrimp and my husband had blackened snapper. Prepared perfectly. Service was good, slow at times, but we were not in a big rush so we were fine. Good selection of wine and beer and some interesting cocktails.

Our waiter was very attentive and the food was excellent. We added fruit plates and even the fruit was ripe and really delicious. There was great attention to detail. This was a good find for brunch and we enjoyed the beautiful weather outside on the patio.

This was my first experience with the Blu Halo and I must admit its now a favorite! Our server, Tiffany, was out of this world one of the best servers I've had in Tallahassee. My family has owned restaurants in Panama City so you can imagine that my standards are very stringent. She nailed casual fine dining service! Of course, the meal was amazing! Thank you for helping me find a new favorite restaurant! :-)

The service was great! My wife had the blackened grouper and was very pleased. I had the rib eye steak. It was tasty, but not as tender as I would have hoped for at the price.
