I cant believe how bland the food was. I had to come home and eat crackers to get the taste out of my mouth.
I had the shrimp bisque it was so watery and tasteless. Octopus was okay. My husband had the tuna and I had the hen. Both were so so awful we couldn't finish it. For dessert we shared the tiramisu which again was utterly disappointing. After a $250 we went home and ate crackers. They need to fix their menu. Having said that, the ambiance was wonderful and so was the service.

The Rigatoni Bolognese was pretty mediocre and a disappointment. The ravioli was excellent but very small portion for the price paid. Ambience was nice but not worth the value. The bottle of red wine ordered was awful - Chianti. Tiramisu was not great either. Cocktail (old fashion) was excellent - that was the highlight of the evening.

For a business dinner, Blu was very good in all aspects (food, service, value, setting) except the noise level and background music. Would hesitate to use Blu again for a business dinner where the focus is on conversation.

Nice platting and good. Worthy of a date night or other special occasion. The order of things was a little discombobulated like the entrance of the patio door, people waiting and getting to the bathroom. Not friendly for the aged as the dining is on the second floor and bathroom in the basement.

Our experience last night at Blu was outstanding. The live music was so nice. They happen on Sunday Nights. We celebrated our anniversary and all the staff made an effort to wish us a happy one and made our dining experience memorable. Food came promptly and was delicious! Service is top notch! Will definitely be back again! Thank you so much.

I was a little disappointed we were the only table that had different chairs that were faux leather
The moment I sat there was a crouton or like on the ground that I had stepped on.
Wrong apps were delivered to our table
Took forever for someone to come take our dessert order

Not quite how I wanted date night to be like

1st time visiting and was very pleasantly surprised. Great value for that part of town and lovely atmosphere. If you have a group of 6 or more book one of the booths in the Bar area, looks like lots of fun.

Great service, very attentive and professional, great food, salads were especially liked at our table, entrees were good, well presented. We were at a table inside and all of noted a cold draft at times. Fortunate to get “free” street parking almost directly in front of the restaurant, but otherwise parking is limited.

Went there for the first time, for a birthday, we had the pasta, food was okay. Definitely overpriced. Dessert we had tiramisu, for $14 it tasted like a mouthful of cocoa powder repeatedly. Hostess was very nice, server couldn't care less that it was our first time there or that we were celebrating a birthday. They couldn't even write happy birthday on the dessert plate or even wish the guest a happy birthday. We were seated at the back of the restaurant near the kitchen entrance, there was a draft coming from somewhere, we got so cold, we ended up wearing our jackets at the dinner table. Will not be back.

The atmosphere was nice. Cozy but a little decadent. The wait staff was absolutely excellent. The food was interesting and well presented. Delicious. They had live entertainment that was a true delight. I'd go back. I'd take friends back and I'd tell all I knew to go.

Service was impeccable as was the food. The restaurant was jam packed, hence the noise level was a bit high and there was some background music towards the end of our meal, which really got drowned out by all the talking.

asked for a glass of wine and was given one sip, the restaurant later contacted me notifying me that the server was giving me a sample of the wine to try but I was never told it was a tasting.I was under the impression that I had to pay for that little wine. However, my issue now lies with management and how the team reached out to me. I apologized to them for my poor review, changed my review after I felt bad, and now the owner is telling me that I have self-esteem issues that I need to deal with ? will NEVER be coming back here if this is how the owner chooses to deal with the situation. My server Jeff and the other server Don who helped us after we had to leave were extremely helpful and understanding. But i’m not sure why the owner wants to attack me for having a bad experience at THEIR restaurant.

I took my husband to Blu for his birthday dinner and we were blown away. The ambiance, the food quality, portion size and service were incredible! We ate indoors which was romantic and stunning but the heated patio looked so nice as well!
We decided to make this our special spot for celebrations as it won’t disappoint.
