    The reservation and confirmation of the reservation were problematic. But Jeff the manager solved all the problems. The food was delicious but overpriced, especially in relation to the quantity. Three thin slices of seared raw tuna should not be $45. But the tuna was delicious! The service was as it should be - totally fine. Not slow, but also not overbearing.

    My wife and I had dinner at Blu in Toronto. We had requested a table on the patio. We got an outstanding table upon our arrival. Our server, Michael, adjusted the heater so we had a very comfortable & pleasant microclimate. The sweet potato soup, the grilled salmon, and gnocchi were delicious & beautifully prepared & presented. The wine selection, cocktails, desserts, & espresso coffee were all excellent. Michael provided us a superb attentive service. It’s truly an outstanding restaurant, with a beautiful ambiance, and in a great neighborhood. A gem!

    We went to Blu as a party of five to celebrate a birthday. The ambience and service was really good. However, the food was cold making it average. Otherwise the taste would’ve been better. We didn’t want to be rude and complain because we were a party of five

    Food and service were both top notch . I found the tables a bit too close to each other but at 7pm someone drastically dimmed the lights . I don’t like sitting in gloom . If not for that I would give it 10 out of ten but now score it at 7.5

    We did the tasting menu with wine pairings and loved the experience! Everything was excellent, with all the flavors perfectly combined with the wine. Michael, our server, was outstanding. It was my first time at Blu restaurant, and I will definitely come back, especially for the tartar, carpaccio, and branzino! This tasting menu is definitely worth the price!

    Terrific evening at Blu. Even though it was awhile since last there, we were greeted warmly by all the staff. The service was excellent and appropriately attentive throughout the night. We ordered the Gem Caesar along with the Duck Confit Pappardelle and Butternut Squash Ravioli. Flavours were fantastic and portions were just right. The focaccia was so delicious, we could not refuse second helping when It was offered to us. Love the new USB table lamps as we could more light when reading the menu without having to pull out our phones.
