Service was extremely attentive and fast. I highly recommend Blu.
Excellent service / atmosphere/ food / cleanliness/
Very attentive and strict with COVID-19.
Service is always incredible and the food is outstanding. I have been to Blu over two handfuls of times over the course of the past month. I highly encourage you go. The service unmatched (I ask for Mauricio to be our server but Jordan is excellent as well) and the selection is local, fresh and never disappoints. I will continue to return and recommend Blu to anyone. Some of my favourites include the truffle ragu gnocchi (absolutely to DIE for) and the beet risotto, they molten cake makes me salivate at just the thought of it too!
Restaurant handled social distancing perfectly. Service was great, patio lovely. Food was cooked perfectly and will return.
Wish they recognized it was our anniversary ( like I stated on reservation) like most restaurants.
We dined here on July 26th. The service and the food were amazing. We shared the carpaccio- it was very good. I highly recommend the tuna entree. We also had the tiramisu which was good but to my surprise the Pana Cotta was amazing. I don’t like panacotta but this wasn’t very sweet, but a little tart. I was perfect way to end our meal. The patio is also really big and beautiful. I recommend trying out this restaurant.
Convenient Yorkville location. Great food, great service, great atmosphere. Would highly recommend it.
A great restaurant. Friendly and professional staff. The food was excellent. We will go back!
It was super nice experience. Fancy patio and nice romantic atmosphere. Food was super good, but our stake was over cooked and way too thing. Overall everything was perfect. Definitely come back there again.
Great food, great service and a really nice ambience! They did a very nice job creating a nice patio atmosphere for pandemic times.
Welcoming staff, great food and lovely atmosphere.
Service was amazing. Wine was great, the seared Tuna was very bland, but the rest of the food was good
It was our first meal out since covid and it was wonderful. Everything was as we hoped it would be. We had been to Estia and loved the patio so knew the venue was great. The food and service did not disappoint. We will be back soon.
Food and service were excellent. Only thing I didn't like was they noise from Avenue Road which obviously the restaurant cant control.
Great nice place to spend an evening with family.
The service and food was amazing, Michael our waiter was very attentive and showed great concern with my food allergy(black pepper) when I ordered something that might have had black pepper in it the kitchen changed the dish so that I could safely eat and enjoy it.which I was very impressed with. I would recommend this restaurant to any one that wants great food, great and caring personable service. Can’t wait to go back
Everything was great! Great staff & delicious food!
Great food, great waiter, lovely experience
Amazing place to celebrate a special occasion or to impress on a date. You get what you pay for including a beautiful atmosphere, great service and food. Well worth the visit!
I have enjoyed the quality of the menu, the food, wine list and service for several years - Blu had become a favorite of ours just a block away from home, and for special occasions too. We were skeptical when they were forced to move but we have now had two patio dinners there and they were both excellent. It is so nice that they are open again and the standards have been well maintained. The patio is very pleasant.
Excellent service and food was beautiful to look at and great to eat!! Definitely will go back!
This was my first restaurant visit since Covid and I was very comfortable here at Blu’s patio. My husband has been wanting to do normal things again so this was our first date in months! We will be back with our kids for sure!! All the best to you and your wonderful staff!! We need restaurants like yours to be supported during this time!
Staff were very nice
Went there for my anniversary,was treated great, a little pricy but worth it. They took great care of us the food was amazing definitely coming back
Great for a venture back to a restaurant after 4 months. Key - we felt safe
We came for the blu chocolate and end up ordering more. Our waiters were so friendly and the service outstanding. Definitely one of our favorite spots.
Great welcoming staff, charming patio, good food, professional and friendly service.
Great service, food and ambience. Extra measures in place to ensure complete safety during COVID-19. Our server Billy was terrific, friendly, attentive without being intrusive. Will definitely plan to return.
A relaxing dining experience wth good food, and courteous service in a nice open air setting.

Excellent food - very flavourful and beautiful
The service was excellent
Very friendly waiters and service in gle . Wil go back if around the area.
Everything was great! All the Covid precautions were taken so our dining experience felt very comfortable
Very good, loved the environment! Amazing food!!!!
Blu Ristorante's patio was a welcome oasis despite the 30C temperature and especially so during these Covid-19 days. The staff was over the top helpful. Their Negroni cocktail was perfect and their food was delicious! They bake their own focaccia every day. I'm gluten intolerant so I couldn't eat it but my friends loved it. All their food was high quality and they took care to ensure everything I ordered was made gluten-free. I loved their extensive wine list. We were a group of 4 for a friend's birthday, they brought over a piece of cake with a candle. Blu was the right choice for our celebration.
It was my first time there and given the circumstances (COVID) they handled the situation extremely well. The food, the service, and the environment was done well. I appreciated my time at Blu Ristorante.
The food was delicious and their patio is beautiful! The staff and service was out of this world. They were always quick with water and ice for such a hot day before we ever had to ask! Shannon was a pleasure and we are looking forward to going back.
staff was excellent great atmosphere and they were very accommodating
The food was basic. Not as nice looking as the pictures on google.
