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.

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.

Thank you

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

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.

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!

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.
