We made a go for eating on the heated patio, and no regrets. All of the food was excellent, and we had great service. They have a lot of heaters on the patio, but it is still important to dress as warm as you can, especially the footwear! We will definitely go back… I think they are opening the interior next week.

I was there celebrating my birthday. We all had an amazing time. Our server was outstanding!!! He was thorough in his explanation of the special, drinks and was able to clarify questions we had about the menu. He continuously checked on our table, topped up our water and ensured that everything that came from the bar and kitchen was to our satisfaction. I wish I remembered his name but kudos to him! The food came out hot and was extremely tasty. We had a number of heaters surrounding our table. We stayed warm and so did our food. A wonderful experience. I would have returned the following day if I was able to! ☺️

We went last night to celebrate our daughter's landmark birthday. String lights and candles decorated the patio—a pretty setting. We dressed for the outdoors. The heaters and blankets helped to keep us cozy.
The service team was so kind and incredibly attentive. We felt well looked after.
Each dish was lovely and delicious. A beautiful place to celebrate. Our thanks to everyone at Blu who made the evening a special one!

Despite no indoor dining, we wanted to celebrate our anniversary so opted to dine outdoors and make the best of things! Every effort was made to make it a warm, cozy experience by staff - they even gave us blankets! While the temperatures outside were frigid, the delicious food and warm, friendly service made the night. Highly recommend both the gnocchi and ravioli dishes!

Went during lockdown in Toronto, so we were seated in their outdoor patio. It was warm inside the tent, they also gave us blankets for our legs and feet. Michael was our server and was so welcoming- we will definitely be coming back! The food was amazing.

Even though it was the day of a snow storm the staff made our dinner extremely comfortable and the restaurant patio was nice and warm!

Food was great and service was great - recommended for outdoor dining in winter while toronto is in lockdown

Celebrated an anniversary here last night. The service and ambiance were both phenomenal.

The grilled calamari and chocolate cake were delicious. The rib eye was decent however the sweet potato gratin was too charred for my liking.

Overall, we had a nice time dining on a patio in January. No need for jackets, there’s heaters everywhere.

First experience dining on a patio in January! We were completely comfortable and not cold at all. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. It’s a little magical patio oasis in the middle of the craziness…. Thank you

Absolutely loved Blu! After seeing the Nutcracker ballet, it was the perfect place to end a romantic night. We had the wild truffle mushroom risotto, veal chop, burrata salad, zucchini fritters and some Brie cheese. Everything was incredible from the food to the service.
