It was my birthday and I celebrated alongside my cousin and sister. The food was absolutely amazing; mouthwatering, decadent, outstanding food. The energy of the place was just top-tier. And the service was impeccable.

Overall very good. Tha apple salad is amazing yet we found their version of a Caesar salad quite salty. The squash ravioli were very good aaa was the mushroom risotto. The duck leg was a little over cooked. Gelato trio for dessert was a nice way to finish the meal.

We went there for my husband’s birthday, we had an outdoor seating, there was a lot of noise we barely could hear each other talk. The starters were delicious (burrata and grilled calamari) I had a risotto and it was too salty, my husband had a steak but didn’t like the sauce that comes with it. The service was very good, even if I had trouble hearing the waiter because of the noise.

First time experience at Blu, I loved everything about it. The service was impeccable, so attentive and felt appreciated as a guest. Food presentation and quality was beyond outstanding. The Burrata and grilled calamari are out if this world. The menu offers a really nice selection. The ambiance is perfection. Restrooms are also impeccably clean snd well maintained. I appreciate the attention to COVID measures as well. A very special thanks to our server who made our dining experience perfect!

The service was fantastic and made our anniversary special.

The food was priced well for their main menu items, however the special was underwhelming (portion wise). Generally the food was tasty - although you can get “better” tasting food at a lower price point elsewhere.

Ambiance was great and overall your experience was positive - we would come back!

Excellent service, good food and ambiance. Certainly, not the best for value…but to be expected within close proximity to Yorkville. Not the most extensive menu, but I can recommend the carpaccio, zucchini fritters and the tuna tartar. Can’t quite understand the obsession with sweet potatoes, as every single one of their many potato side dishes/accompaniments are sweet potato based? Weird, and hardly a situation which affords the customer some selection. Overall, the food was good….but not great. Let me know when the kitchen staff discovers there are different types of potatoes available for cooking….

Service is always top notch. Best beef carpaccio in the city, crispy calers make it. Attention to detaul is the key. Once you try Blu it will become your go to restaurant!

That was our second time at this restaurant. First time the food was amazing. Unfortunately I can’t say the same thing for yesterday’s dinner.
I ordered the tuna which is accompanied with eggplant that was extremely salted and tasteless. Besides the tuna, nothing in that plate had a good taste.
We also ordered arugula salad that was poorly dressed.

In all trips, there is one night we need to relax. Blue restaurante provided the comfort we were longing for: cosy setting, professional staff, that are attentive yet not intrusive, excellent menu, good wine, elegant yet not overbearing decor.

We had such a great experience at Blü. We went early, because of scheduling issues, so we had the place to ourselves for few minutes. We were spoiled with great service and then filled full of amazing food. I'm glad I picked lighter fare so I could do 4 courses--each one was amazing.

We went in for a Sunday night family dinner to try something new. The food was OK. Truffle carpaccio and tuna tartar was really good but the antipasti was way over priced. $10 per item for cheeses and salami I can get in my local Metro grocery store. The best part of this dish was the crostini that came with it. $10 warm olives where three of them were big but the rest were the size of peas. That was annoying to eat. Cornish hen was ok, lamb was ok but the sweet potato gnocchi was really decadent. Swimming in garlic butter sauce. Overall, I felt I was paying for the Yorkville location over the food.

The appetizers / starters were very tasty.. however neither the ahi tuna or the ribeye was appetizing.. also the outdoor / patio was very noisy.. and the staff at the welcoming desk were less than polite…

It was our anniversary and they treated us like royalty. Our waiter Luis was AMAZING, so knowledgeable, kind and genuine. The service was top notch. The manager and all the staff were so friendly and attentive. I have celiac disease and they were so accommodating and took special care with my menu selections. Couldn’t have had a better anniversary dinner. :) They even treated us to a yummy dessert sorbet! Cheers to Blu Restaurante and staff. We will definitely be back next time we visit Toronto. :)
