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.

Hands down one of the best, and most memorable dinning experience I’ve had in Toronto. I took my partner for a romantic dinner, and couldn’t have picked a better spot. The lights dimmed to create the perfect intimate atmosphere. The service was incredibly polite, and attentive. The food, omg the food… I can guarantee Blu has the best beef carpaccio in town. And believe me, I’ve tried top quality carpaccio; but this one blew our minds.
We ordered the ribeye steak, which came with a delicious gravy sauce. We also ordered osso buco, and it was one of the most tendered meats I’ve tried. Exquisite sauce, delicious risotto and mouth watering meat. I’m an extremely satisfied customer, who can’t wait to come back to Blu.

We have been to Blu a few times. Our waiter, Steve, was fantastic. The Somm/Manager was professional. And the host, Tom, was link, courteous and went beyond the call of duty to accommodate us. It was great night. Thanks to everyone at Blu, including the chef and the kitchen team.

The food is top notch, the rack of Lamb and Gnocchi is a must have! Blu has the best staff out of any other restaurants in the city, one of the main reasons I keep coming back.

Food was great. Outdoor patio one of the best in the city. Decor inside very inviting. Lots of soft walls to absorb sound. A waiter with personality helped us order. Not stuffy at all.

We have spent excellent time at the restaurant. We liked the food, service and the interior. The only disappointment was that we expected live jazz as it was written on the website and there was none.

Trendy place, somewhat dazzling decor, but a fun vibe. Somewhat pricey entrees but a well thought out, short menu. Great service through our meal from various friendly servers, who seemed to work well as a team, regardless of which table needed something.

We all found the blue lights hard on the eyes. Second time now and we won't come back because of that. Waiter was superb! Tuna was sent back, he knows why and they admitted that it wasn't up to their usual quality. The problem was fixed as they immediately offered something else, that we really enjoyed. The octopus appetizer was very small. If you fix the lighting, we will be back.
Thanks

Restaurant was dark. Waiter never brought bread as he said he would. Cornish Hen entre was fair and accompanied by inedible Brussel sprouts. (1 sprout cut in half) Service was poor especially getting our food. Don’t waste your money and go someplace else. Sorry we chose this restaurant. Won’t return.

Our server Maurizio (I believe that was his name, he told us he was from Mexico) was exceptional. The food and atmosphere was excellent, but the service from Maurizio put it over the top and he is the single reason why we will return sometime soon.
