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.

We had a terrific family dinner here on a Tuesday night. Atmosphere was warm and service was welcoming. Food was very good, especially the tuna appetizer, the beef tartare, and scallop and pork belly special --outstanding.

The service is top notch. Disappointed in the charcuterie & cheese board. Octopus, linguini and porchetta were good. The salmon was excellent. Would come again, particularly on a BYOB night.

One of my absolute fave places to dine!! The atmosphere, food, service and staff are amazing. Shout out to Bill!! :) If you’re going here, definitely try the Zucchini pasta. It’s one of the best out there. Definitely will be returning frequently.

Blu continues to be the most consistent restaurant I know. The creatives menu is full of flavour delights and surprises. Service is prompt and efficient but staff allows you to dictate the flow of the evening. This visit we had time to relax and were in no hurry. We can never decon appetizers so I had the carpaccio, delightful with crispy capers and a few tiny pickled beans, my companion had the tartare, and we shared the sous vide octopus. Our mains and shared panna cotta were perfect. The valet parking is wonderful especially in the winter. We were told Blu is moving to Avenue Rd in April. Can't wait to see the new space

If you are looking to get the most professional service, this is the place! My family and I enjoyed the full 3 course meal that we had, every dish was unique and tasty prepared with care, love, and passion. They served us in a timely manner and didn't charge us for a dish that came in few minutes later than other dishes.

Food was excellent, as was the atmosphere. Cozy and perfect lighting/setting for a nice dinner. My only complaint is upon arrival, we were not addressed by the waiter or anyone for 15 minutes as we waited for our guests to arrive. No offer for drinks, anything until I called out to someone to place an order. Otherwise, the meal and waiter was good after the orders were taken but the initial impression was underwhelming and had to be overcome
