    In general the meals were very good. The only downside was the veal which was extremely tuff. Make certain you have a steak knife to cut it and be prepared to chew with vigor! Enjoyed the evening inspite of that.

    We had tickets to Rams Head and usually dine at Luna Blu before the shows. This time was disappointing. It started with our server. From the first encounter she looked like she would rather be anywhere else but there. She did not tell us what the specials were, we overheard another server telling her customers what they were. She did not refill our water glasses; again, another server did that for us. She barely checked on how we were doing. The food was really disappointing. I look forward to the Scallops Con Polenta. This time, the polenta was gummy and the scallops rubbery. My husband’s dish was pasta with scallops, lobster, crab and shrimp. He could identify the shrimp but unsure if he got any of the other seafood. We ordered cappuccinos to end the meal. It was served with no spoons and no sweetener. Truly a disappointing meal. Looks like a new restaurant is going to be opening a few doors up from Luna Blu. If the food and service remain as disappointing as we experienced with this visit, we definitely will be exploring other restaurants for pre-show dining.

    Overall our experience was great!! There was live music across the street and we sat outside, so it made the atmosphere perfect! It was very busy so service was a little slow, but otherwise it was awesome. My husband and I split the mussels and clams as an appetizer, I got the chicken piccata, and my husband got the veal with prosciutto and fontina. All was delicious! Highly recommend, but definitely make reservations!

    We dined on a summer Saturday night to enjoy downtown Annapolis's Dinner Under the Stars. While the outdoor dining with live music made for great ambience, unfortunately the rest of the dinner just didn't meet those same standards. While cordial, all parts of service took a long time from drinks to ordering to serving to the check. We weren't overly impressed with the food. In particular, the veal was overcooked and as served Picatta-style the breading became soggy and mushy in the sauce. I might try this again but on a less-busy night and with different food choices.

    Our group of 6 went during a 'dinner under the stars' and were seated outside. Todd was our server. He was fantastic. Todd was able to explain different wines which pair with certain dishes. He was attentive without being overbearing. His knowledge was used by us all night. He did a wonderful with suggestions and maintained a phenomenal job the all night. The food was scrumptious!! My salmon was so moist and tender and the scallops were cooked perfectly. I ate every single bite, so so delicious. Each of my friends loved their dinners. I can't recommend Luna Blu enough. Be sure and ask for Todd.

    Great Italian food with an Annapolis flair! Dinner "under the stars" on a Wednesday PM and no thunderstorms! Come sit outside and enjoy Annapolis' West St with live entertainment. Friendly attentive service - - Bridgett made a great suggestion from the wine list. Started with the mozzarella caprese - - delicious fresh ripe tomatoes and equally fresh mozzarella. The barramundi was its usual top shelf dish and the halibut special rivaled it. You cannot go wrong with Luna Blu!

    Usually have a much better experience at this restaurant, so we won't hold one time against them. The service was excellent, but the loud and crying children and the lady blowing her nose in her napkin made this experience dreadful. To top it off, the pizza had very little to no sauce on it. That being said, we usually have the best experiences there, so we will go again.

    Luna Blu is always a stop when in Annapolis. The food is consistently excellent and we’ve never been disappointed with the service. Love dining here when we have the opportunity! Our waiter, Todd, was excellent and took the time to walk through the menu with other customers who had not dined there before. He made an excellent recommendation for me when I told him I wanted to try something different from what I normally order. Great place!

    Must make reservations. Indoors has limited seating at "rush" hours. Note: tight seating and loud when crowded due to small dining area. Opt for earlier or later dining or eat outdoors. Food prep outstanding, pasta with meat sauce average, opt for another selection, there are many. Ciabatta rolls with olive oil - meh, however spinach salad outstanding, same for crab bruschetta. I loved the steamed mussels and clams in white wine sauce. Make sure you get mussels/clams in Every shell. I added grilled shrimp to my spinach salad --3/$5. Zabaglione very good. Staff accommodating and attentive, however kitchen slow between courses. Started at 7:30, finished at 10:30. We ordered our entire meal at the beginning. Meal for two with appetizers, salad+, entree and desert, plus two drinks and an iced tea $118 plus taxes/tip. Parking validated but only for 1 1/2 hours. We paid the rest.

    We had family from out of town who wanted a good downtown Annpolis tour experience, and we decided to incorporate dinner into the tour. Some of our guest are vegetarian and were pleasantly surprised to find Luna Blue has many vegan dishes. Everyone order something different, and all were pleased with their meal. Great place!

    Luna Blue consistently puts out amazing food along with great service and atmosphere. This trip we had a group of six celebrating a birthday from out of town. The 4 course was a huge hit with everyone and there were a lot of different things ordered on the menu, the theme was the same across the board! All the food was freshly prepared from the soups, salads, apps and main course. My personal favorite here is the scallops and polenta appetizer, scallops are a challenge and the kitchen staff here has them down to a science with the perfect outside sear and tender inside. The polenta is really good as well as the accompanying sauce.

    The menu was tightly written, which is wonderful. I wanted everything. The wait staff engaged in personable banter and I put my order in her hands. I ordered the 4 course meal and enjoyed a meal of fragrant, visually appealing, and mouthwateringly fresh ingredients in a quiet outdoor environment. It was a five senses experience. My meal started with Burrata. If you’ve enjoyed Mozzarella di bufala, try the burrata, it’s a treat. The salad was crisp, the tomato was as sweet and tangy as the ones at my Hawaii farmer’s market. Farfalle di Cremona sans shrimp. Yes the chef prepared the dish without shrimp per my request. The scallops were delicate, tender and large! The crab portions were generous and sweet. I don’t know how to properly describe the Alfredo. Smooth and creamy, it gently carried the seafood and perfectly firm pasta without being clumpy. The peas punctuated the dish with a light sweetness. I was sated halfway through my pasta just as the fireflies made their appearance. Saving my Tiramisu for breakfast, I was sad I didn’t bring home two.

    We did Dining Under the Stars which is outdoor seating in the closed street on Weds. Perfect date. Only issue was all the restaurants starting breaking down their stuff while we were still eating. They have to because the street has to open back up at 10. Next time we will just get an earlier reservation.

We ordered take out for 4 people - it was excellent!! Great menu selection that was delicious & very gourmet! Nicely packaged with directions & excellent service! Luna Blu is one of our favorite Annapolis restaurants!!

    While the food was pretty good (needed salt), the ambience was poor for a "dining under the stars" experience. We could only get an 8:15 seating. During our meal, we had to listen to scraping tables and snapping of chairs being folded while the staff started to dismantle everything around us. Then a large black dog was allowed to roam free - brushing against our chair backs and even our legs under the table while it's owner stood there thinking it was cute. Wait staff did nothing. My husband finally told the dog's owner to put it on a leash. I was disappointed that the front of Luna Blue was junky. A cart sat in front of the windows with dirty linens and a bunch of - well stuff - dirty stuff. Whatever was piled there was not very pleasant to look at. We had out of town guests so I gave them the chairs facing out so they would not have to look at that while eating. Then there was a variety of 'characters' weaving in and out of the liquor store next door. So, we will not be doing dining under the stars anytime soon again. Also if you order the calamari - beware it is not fried!

    Took my girlfriend here for a date for the dinner under the stars night. We were aware that there was a chance of rain but we figured we would be able to miss the rain as our reservation was hours before the rain was going to start. By the time it started raining we had been there for an hour and half and had only received our appetizers. The service was awful and when asked about what would happen if it began to rain our server simply did not care and shrugged us off on top of ignoring us most of the night as well as messing up the salad order. When it began to rain they literally left us out there and just packed up the rest of the plastic tables. My girlfriend watched them take walk ins for the inside while they left us out there instead of moving us inside. To top it all awful they refused to serve my girlfriend who just recently turned 21 a glass of wine because her license was from out of state and was deemed “illegal” by the restaurant despite her license being valid. By that point we were aggravated and asked to just pay for what we had eaten, our server refused and just placed our entrees in to go boxes. The food wasn’t even good and we ended up throwing it out. Frankly this is one of the worst dining experiences I have ever had and for $100 + dinner I had expected a lot more than sitting at a plastic table being ignored the whole night and then being sent home with nasty food in to go boxes.

    The restaurant limited reservations for Dinner Under the Stars for 2 people to 1-1/2 hrs. But told us our table was booked for someone else only 1 hour after our reservation time. When I complained, they rearranged things and said we could stay longer. We got up to dance to the band that was playing and they cleared our dishes tho we weren’t done. A while later we got up to dance again and we told waitress not to take my wine glass but another waitress took it anyway. When the owner learned of it they brought me another sip of wine. Everything else was great but we felt rushed the whole time and the service definitely left something to be desired.
