"The food and service are wonderful. The music was so loud we asked to move. The mushroom tagliatelle was great and shrimp was a great add."

"We stayed at the Marriott downtown for the recent NACA Convention. We ate breakfast daily, and dined one time for dinner. I had a large party for dinner and food and service were excellent. It did take a little longer than hoped but come to find out it was because the server didn't like the way my lobster was cooked and sent back to prepare a new one. I'm glad he did as it was excellent. Breakfast was mediocre and a bit of a disappointment for the hefty price. My first morning breakfast was old, rubbery, powdered eggs, meats, and french toast. Remaining days were better but not fit for the price. Unfortunate as this was the only non-room service breakfast dining option in the hotel (other than Starbucks)."

"We did not have a good experience at all. The restaurant wasn't even half full and the service was horrible. I don't know if the disconnect was with the kitchen or with our waiter. When the food did come out, the fish was over cooked. We were charged for items that we never received. The waiter only came by twice in two hours. The manager did, however, come over to our table a couple of times and try to make it right. We were never ugly about it, but we would never go back."

"Wasn't sure what to expect. Previous reviews were mixed, mostly complaining about the service. We dined early, 5:30. Very few diners at the time. Service was quick and very good. Food came quickly up to the main entrée which seemed to take longer but not terrible. The quality of the food was excellent. A little pricey but well worth it. Wanted to try dessert but we were full so decided to pass. Maybe next time will leave off the appetizer. Did not realize a head of time that the BLU is inside the Marriot which turned out to be a perk as they have free valet parking for restaurant patrons."

"We only go to Blu for brunch. It's the best value I've seen for a brunch. Included in the price are bottomless mimosas AND complimentary valet parking. The food quality for the most part reflects the price. We like all the choices. My favorite station is the salads/fromage/charcuterie table. In my opinion this is the best quality food for the price. Sopressata, capacola, salami, Brie, bacon cheddar and a caraway cheese. Make a salad with field greens or butter lettuce, crumbled blue, candied walnuts and dried cranberries! The dressings are just as good, especially an apple vinegrette. All the standard breakfast fare is there including a whole case of baked goods with a toaster. A cold bar with smoked salmon, Caprese salad, milk, fruits, cereal are good. My ONLY complaint about food would be the Caprese salad. They always offer it and tomatoes are only good in season. There's nothing I hate more than a hot house tomato. Yuck. The egg station offers omlets, eggs benedict ( my personal all time favorite breakfast dish.) A pasta station is offered along with roasted meats, an entree station with pork, beef etc. The dessert station is good, we had our favorite offering this time, a Italian lemon Creme cake. The only reason I rated the service lower was our particular server. We had to continually ask for more mimosas while we noticed the tables around us with a different server never went empty. Also when we were seated the server did politely greet us but that was it. We noticed later that other servers were greeting tables and telling them the special Benedict of the day and various notes while we were told nothing. Plates are removed promptly from your table. This brunch is a great value and wonderful experience. We will continue to frequent."

"I had a lovely dinner here. The entire staff went out of their way to make guests feel welcome. The waiter had an excellent knowledge of the menu items and explained them well. Plates were brought and removed quickly by smiling staff who dished out delicious food and compliments. The butternut squash soup was smoky and sweet. The kale salad was fresh and well dressed. The manager came by twice to check on guests. The whole experience was an absolute delight!"

"This place is wonderful. My husband and I have only been for brunch but we love it everytime. It's about 25 a person and if you are a mimosa person... BOTTOMLESS mimosas. The jazz music really is the icing of the cake. The food and service is amazing. Everytime we have been they have had different lunch items but the breakfast is always the same."

"Didn't expect the quality of food as the restaurant is in a downtown hotel (Marriott) and often times you don't get much from them even though they are always pricey. It was a bit of a last minute pick for us as we didn't make reservations until that afternoon and the original restaurant we had wanted to go to couldn't accommodate us until later in the evening.
The menu was varied and had something for everyone (even the 2 children in our party of 8).
The servers were excellent and everybody's meal was cooked perfectly and arrived at the table hot. The only drawback I would say was the wine list which was okay but not that extensive.
Will definitely go again next time we are in the Louisville area and are looking for Italian fare."

"I have had good lunch experiences in this restaurant. However, dinner was a huge disappointment. Our service was dreadful - had to wait 10 minutes to even see a waiter to order a drink. That poor service continued throughout the meal. We ordered surf & turf. While the quantity of food was impressive, the food tasted like it was part of a meal made for 300 guests. The filet was dry and had little flavor (even though requested temperature was medium rare). The lobster tail was flavorless and dry. We also had some sort of apple pizza as an appetizer. It tasted like someone swiped apple butter all over the dough and tossed in a few apples. It was just plain awful. It was inedible."
