    We had an excellent dinner at Blu Halo for my birthday. While everything was very good, our waiter was on the slow side. Other diners whom were seated after us, were greeted by their waitress and had water before ours came by to tell us that he was going to pour wine for another table and he would be back. It was another 5 minutes before we saw him again. It was a common occurrence throughout the night for us to be waiting for a while for him to appear. When he dropped the check at the end of our meal, we had the card in hand before he left the table; however, he left and we didn’t see him for 10 minutes. He was very kind and gave excellent service; he just needs to be a bit more timely. Also, the live music performer was good, but at times it made it difficult to have a conversation.

    The food was all good. My favorite was the lobster Mac and cheese. The atmosphere was great. It’s seem like it more for business meals or date night, but it was very accommodating. The customer service was excellent. She was well mannered, prepared, and professional. I definitely recommend the place. It was a great experience! If you are not of fan of out of the norm meals. I do not recommend this place for you. If you’re fine with trying new things, this spot is for you!

    We were seated at 12:15. Was waited on 12:50. Received food 1:40. Chicken and waffle was so hard (both) my son wouldn't eat it. My girlfriend's steak was over cooked. All of our food arrived to our table cold, lukewarm at best. I had to get warm syrup to melt the cold butter on my waffle. Waiter offered to have food redone. We had waited so long... we declined. My third visit to Blu Halo. Absolutely horrid this time. We did not leave the restaurant until 2:30. I live in Central Florida; therefore, it's not someplace I would ever go again when in Tallahassee dropping off/picking up my student.

    My dinner reservation was not honored which was booked online a few days before. Waited over 1 hour for another table and never got it. They sat other people that came in after me. Manager had multiple excuses. Unfortunately, they seem to have a specific crowd they like to cater to.

    The lavender lemonade cocktails are inconsistent - the past few times I’ve been there it’s been hit or miss and they used to be consistently excellent. Recently they have Tasted harsh and the waitress brought me some crème de violette to add which helped but aim not sure exactly what it is. My girlfriend noticed it last month when we came in as well.

    Love dining at Blu Halo. The food and drink menus are good, but very limited. We enjoy it is located close to our home. Reservations are required. It gets a little noisy when there is a live band. But what truly always bring us back to Blu Halo is our amazing server, Bailey. She is always so welcoming and takes exceptionally great care of us or any of her customers!

    Both the service and food was impeccable. We had heard mixed reviews so we were pleased with both. We will probably return, only for special occasions due to the cost, for which we were prepared to pay. We had an indoor table, at a fairly lightly occupied time there were few other diners but they were placed close to us. Not too big of a deal but would have liked more privacy for how far in advance reservations were made. Also, reservations asked if it was for a special occasion, it was, but that information was not passed along. Really, none of that really reflects upon both the outstanding service and food- both taste and presentation.

    The food was great. It arrived hot and with great presentation. I think some of the portions could be larger. WE ordered large platter of crab legs and even the waitress notice the small size of the legs and brought over another. The waitress Hailey was great.

    Worse experience! Just disappointing at the level of service, attentiveness and overall satisfaction. Spoke to general manager and he addressed the table assign issue but appeared to be annoyed by our request for another table when we’d requested a booth with our reservation. Waitress told us the booths were reserved for 3 or more guests and not 2, therefore we couldn’t have a booth. A few minutes later a couple comes in and is seated to an open booth. 🤷🏾‍♂️ Everything was late - the water, food, drink, coffee, dessert and my wife never received the bread. 🤦🏾‍♂️. Lastly, this was our anniversary dinner.

    We were seated in the newer area at a booth, which was great. Beef tips appetizer very good and huge- we took half home. My pork chop with blueberry chutney and goat cheese was great, although goat cheese was just piled on it in a lump, which I do not remember from other times, but husband was served salmon and had ordered snapper so I ate alone while he waited. Snapper came and was very under done so he ate a bit around the edges and we took the rest home. Also brought home desserts. Carrot cake had to be cut in two for takeout container. It is huge! P

    I received a recommendation for this restaurant from a family member. McKenzie was great, very friendly and patient. My partner enjoyed her birthday experience. The drinks were great and the food was full of flavor. The shrimp cocktail did have a weird taste but we still enjoyed our experience. We may have just come on a night that country music was the live entertainment, but jazz or rnb would have been nice for a Saturday night. Overall, it was a 10/10 experience.

    I was very disappointed in the blu halo omelet. Puffed up, airy, no taste except for the 3 blackened shrimp on top. Not even bread of any kind. If I ever go back, I'll have the chicken and waffles.

    Food was almost tasteless. The salad lacked flavor and ingredients for a $14 price tag. The filet was bland and had absolutely no distinction. The blackened grouper was awful. Overall, the meal was very expensive and a diaster. Skip this restaurant. There are many good ones in the area.

    It was the first time all four of us had eaten at the Blu Halo, but it definitely won’t be our last! We had a fabulous meal. There was live music in the bar area, which was a little loud, but we were in the next room, and that made it perfect to talk and hear the music. Our food was tasty, creative, and we all enjoyed our meals. Service was also good. Highly recommend!

    This was a recommendation from a friend. I brought my daughter and two of her college friends for a nice dinner. It did not disappoint. We all love our food…except I didn’t care for the ahi tuna poke. The filet tips appetizer was great (maybe a little lighter on the cheese topping) then we had the pork chop, grouper, filet and ribeye. All were excellent. Really good old fashioned and pinot noir. I would come back again.
