I had lunch today at Blu. I had a delightful time because of the service, the food, and how gorgeous it is the venue. I've been at Blu before but not during lunch. I had Zucchini Pasta, the vegan option, it was delicious and a healthy choice. The service was fantastic, Laurel was very accommodating, and I love all the staff's positivity. I plan to go back. Reasonable prices for lunch and a perfect location to go for a walk after, especially during Fall. TIP: the place is very spacious, which is ideal for social distancing. The staff is excellent in advising the seating if you are a walk-in customer and have never been to this new venue.
We were seated outside first, although I had indicated that I wanted to be seated inside (thankfully we were moved without any problems). Food was mediocre, nothing too special, not even the presentation of the food, and portions were very small. It was a bit too noisy, but the staff were extremely nice. I’ve been to other Italian restaurants which have had lower prices, better food (and larger portions), and a better atmosphere.
I chose Blu because I thought it’d be a nice experience for a special occasion. I’m slightly disappointed as it did not meet my expectations. If you’re planning a special occasion, go to another restaurant on Yorkville avenue itself.
Great! We went for our anniversary and we will go again %100. All expectations were surpassed. The service and food was nothing short of amazing.
Went for girlfriend's b day. Had a really pleasant time
Excellent service, ambiance, food and location. Highly recommend this restaurant.
The place is beautiful, classy, nice ambiance, good service. The food was ok though...not impressed with the food, the veggies were cold, like if the plates were left in the kitchen way too long before they were served. It was nice to try this place for a first time, but I dont think I'll come back.
We ate outside on a cool evening but the heaters they had made it comfortable. The patio's lighting and setting was very romantic. This was the first time my girlfriend and I had been here and would definitely come back.
Amazing food, stellar service and a great vibe.
The live music was a great treat.
The cannoli dessert special lacked flavour, but everything else was beyond fantastic.
Cannot wait to return!
My first time here and we absolutely loved this restaurant .. the service was impeccable .. everyone was so nice, friendly not pretentious ( it IS Yorkville ) and added to our enjoyment of the evening .. we sat outside and it became a little chilly so they moved the heaters a couple of times for us so we could warm up ! The food was amazing.. truffle wild boar ragu sweet potatoe gnocchi (i’m Italian and this was superb) Osso Buco excellent .. risotto cooked perfect .. everything about this restaurant is 5 star !!! Our new “ have to go to “ and we will be back !! Brava!!
Excellent service and a beautiful patio. Food was delicious. Great wine recommendations
It is very good restaurant. The food is delicious.
Our first visit. Excellent food, and excellent service. Will certainly go back again.
Great evening . Great service . Great food
We sat in the patio, which was dimlit with seductive blue colour lighting. Quite romantic and blocked from the cold wind. Food was creative, delicious and extremely presentable.
A truly wonderful dining experience at Blu. The food is simply exquisite.
Both bartenders couldn’t have been more professional, knowledgeable and personable. The food was delicious but they made the whole experience extraordinary
Delicious food and personable staff. We were seated on the outdoor patio by the side of the restaurant. More secluded and quieter than the front patio area. They have heaters too, but no umbrellas. We've been to Blu several times and will return in the future.
Very overrated. Steak was overcooked and the meat quality was poor. Pasta portions were small and very bland.
We had a great experience l I feel myself like in Italy. Love it. We are coming back soon. Thank you for your service.
After a Saturday afternoon shopping on Bloor Street and a visit to the museum I had planned to try a restaurant I have not been to before ... and SO GLAD I picked Blu Ristorante! It was a treat to the senses for sure, I had the Seared Ahi Tuna on pineapple carpaccio and still thinking about it two days later :). Highly recommended!
We had a wonderful experience for my birthday. Shannon was awesome. I loved the patio ambience and the food was outstanding. Thank you!!!
Love blu. Always happy
Excellent service excellent food
Atmosphere was quiet and relaxed, waiter was extremely helpful, food was great. Would recommend
Baby kale salad was delicious, as well as tuna tartar (very nice sauce) Gnocchi were fresh, steak was ok, we asked for medium rare while it was a little more like medium well, gratin was very good. Ravioli were good. Tiramisu and Blu chocolate cake were delicious too.
This was my first dinner out since March and it did not disappoint. The food was delicious and the patio is well spaced and distanced.
Fabulous new surroundings and lovely food
Excellent experience..start to finish👍
Indoor and outdoor dining options near the heart of yorkville. Great selection of drinks and cocktails! I had the steak which was a little over cooked, but very tasty. My husband had the salmon and mushrooms which was perfection! Good selection of seats and very clean.
I’m loving this new location much more spacious and as always the service,servers and food is excellent we’ll definitely be coming back here again
Food was excellent, service was excellent, live music was banging, good place for a date night or special occasion.
It was great
Because of rain, I missed the patio. Upstairs inside was noisy.
Great food! Great service! Second time this week!!
First get together with our friend , since the start of Covid! Patio is great , deli copy’s food & great service
My husband and myself just celebrated our 22 year Anniversary. We booked the restaurant just by seeing it on line.
The service, the atmosphere and the food were divine.
Our waiter Jeff was amazing such a pleasure.
Truly a great experience the food is to die for, Blu did not disappoint!!
We will definitely be going back there again.
Service and food excellent
Every thing perfect
I would readily return and recommend
Service was absolutely fantastic. From waiter to hostess to food runner, everyone was amazing. They did their best to accommodate us.
Food was great, butternut squash ravioli was better than the seared tuna in my opinion. It wasn’t too heavy.
Great place for family dinner.
