First time here and I was very happy. Our server was so helpful and the atmosphere was nice on the patio with the heated lamps. Our food came in a good amount of time and I loved the elderflower drink. Would definitely recommend to go with a friend or on a date.

The evening was a lot of fun, the food great, the service and server friendly and efficient. That said, the evening started on a bit of a sour note. Our reservation was for 7:30pm. Upon arrival the greeter asked for my name looked at his list and noted, quite abruptly, that we had arrived outside of their window, by a mere 3 minutes I might add, and that our table may have been given to another. It had not and we were seated immediately. Not a great first impression for either couple in our party of 4. I must add the following: I live within walking distance of Blu, this was the first visit for each couple, sadly other than take-out, the city has ordered all restaurants to close as of November 23rd only. Under the circumstances, not a particularly great PR move by the restaurant’s greeter in my opinion.

I felt that another group received quite a bit of attention from the wait staff, and some other quieter diners, including us, were not afforded the same degree of consideration. In addition, all decisions were turned over to my companion, who is male, as if he were automatically in charge of our meal. In fact, I was hosting him. This irony made the inappropriate attribution of authority all the more distasteful. The food was terrific, however. And it is a beautiful space.

We have always liked Blu, for years before they relocated. The relocation was unfortunately affected by Covid-19. We have dined there 5 times since. The earlier experiences were at a time when the weather was more favorable and we enjoyed them all. Our latest experience was Oct 28 - a cold night. They have installed a tent and heaters and we were very comfortable - except that we had to ask that one heater be turned down. Service was as thoughtful and efficient as ever, and the food was excellent. Blu is on our list of favorites and we live in Yorkville, so it is a very convenient venue.

Our second visit to Blu was on a cool evening in the latest COVID lock down. We were seated on the outdoor patio. They were more than prepared to ensure our comfort, lots of propane heaters.

The service was exceptionally good, and the food delightfully so as well.

We will be returning.

One of the managers, Mauricio, was amazing! My wife And I were celebrating our Elopement during COVID, and He was so attentive, friendly and caring, making our celebration that much more special. We travel and visit many restaurants and can honestly say, we have never had an experience at a restaurant quite like what Mauricio gave us. We will definitely go back to Blu because of Mauricio. Also the food was amazing!
