The porchetta starter is the winner of the night. Delicious and the portion is huge! Would do as a main as it comes with a salad as well. For mains, we had the seafood linguini and the wild boar ragu. Wasn't able to finish the ragu, so I have that to look forward to for lunch tomorrow. Excellent service. We will be back!

We have been twice. The food was very good both times. The sevice is also quite good. Friendly and efficient. I wouldn't say it is a top 5 restaurant in the City but it is a solid choice. Pro tip: if you go on a Sunday or Monday, you can bring your own wine and there is no corkage fee.

Went for dinner with my family of four, bustling atmosphere but each table has a private 'feel'. Well staffed, interesting menu but not overly trendy or pretentious, good wine list.

Went for a Holiday celebration with friends. Food was ok...nothing special. Did not like the seating arrangement we had...tried to move but they said it wasn't possible. We were right in front of the hallway to the kitchen and washrooms. Wait staff were friendly. First experience just wasn't a good first impression.

Always an exceptional evening out at Blu.
Staff and service is top notch, very attentive without being "too much", and they did a nice thing by splitting a shared pasta dish into individual plates for us.
The food is always great, but I am pretty sure that was the best piece of Ahi Tuna I have had in Toronto.
Weekend entertainment makes it a complete night.
