Blu Ristorante Ratings and Reviews
Blu does an outstanding meal service in a lovely venue. The wait staff is informative, polite and professional. The meal presentation is attractive and delicious.
The added bonus is the generous space between tables, permitting a rare sense of privacy in restaurants today.
"Bravo" & thank you.
From the moment I walked in, I knew I made the right decision in booking my reservation at Blu Ristorante for my aunt's birthday. The Hostess, Tristan, was super helpful and very welcoming. Right away, he asked me if I required anything special for the evening or had any requests and showed me to my table. Service was impeccable. Heidi made our experience so wonderful. Constantly making sure we were okay and well taken care of, Heidi went above and beyond for us. Between the ambiance, excellent service, live entertainment and delicious food, it was truly a night to remember.
I would certainly recommend this restaurant to all of my friends and family, and it won't be long until I return to this restaurant. It was my first time on Yorkville and it certainly will not be my last!
A special thank you to Tristan, Heidi, Chef, and the kitchen staff at Blu Ristorante for making my aunt's birthday a special one!
The service was good. Location is nice, but the food was all a bit off. The pasta was undercooked, the octopus was overly salty, the lamb was good as was the ceasar salad but portions were small.
Overall not bad but too pricey relative to quality and portion size.
The recent visit was a repeat after previous wonderful dining experiences. it did not disappoint once again. The greeting upon arrival was warm and welcoming . The food was wonderful and Cody our waiter provided friendly, attentive and professional service. All the staff were very hospitable. I will definitely be returning soon .
We had a fabulous time! I had mentioned that it was our anniversary dinner when I booked the reservation online and they brought out a special little something for my wife. Right from when we sat down at our table until the last dessert drink we had, the service & food when exceptional & totally recommend coming to Blu for a wonderful night out.
Thank you to all the staff who made our 17th wedding anniversary memorable!
Until the next time,
Tony & Sandy Cordeiro!
Another trip to Blu and another amazing dinner. Had a new waiter that I had never seen before and he was very good. The food was spectacular as usual. Beef tenderloin was perfect, started with a cheese and salami platter and a bottle of Tignanello which was so tasty. The piano player was playing incredible songs and really adds to the ambiance.
Will keep going back and keep recommending it all my friends.
My boyfriend and I went to Blu for our 2 year anniversary and it was amazing. Of course quite expensive but we were prepared for that splurge on a special day! We both really enjoyed our mains of Wild Boar Gnocchi and Beef Tenderloin!! Yummo - we've been raving about it since. Service was just attentive enough with letting us have some peace while we ate. We visited on a Saturday (and I'm not sure if this is a daily thing) but we were treated with a piano bar playing lovely music throughout our time there. Ambience was romantic and perfect for a special occasion. Highly recommend!
My husband and I came here for our anniversary. We were only in town for the weekend and found this place based on reviews on Google Maps. It was excellent. Food was all perfect and our server was very polite and knowledgeable about the food and wine. There was a man singing and playing piano and he was great as well. I wish we lived closer so we could come back again soon!
Blu was recommended to us as a great place to dine in decor is comfortably modern. Our server, Don was terrific making recommendations on wine, appetizers, and an entree. The rigatoni bolognese was wonderful. We stayed for dessert, sorbetto with coffee to hear the entertainment.
There was a guitarist who sang soft mellow tunes who was excellent.
My bride (married 42 years ago ) and I have "date night" every second Thursday. This week we tried Blu Ristorante. We were seated at a table in the front section where the noise level was less. Wait staff was attentive and helpful. Menu was interesting. We shared the ahi tuna appetizer which was delicious and ordered the salmon (she) and roasted beet risotto (me) which were both great. We'll go back once we hit every other good restaurant in our favourite city! I recommend this restaurant Make a reservation!
Food was great, just about everything you'd expect from a restaurant at this price point, variety, freshness, tasty. Huge negative: making our reservation, I did not mention it was our anniversary. 3-4 hours prior our reservation I edited our reservation on "Open Table" for this point only, now saying it is our (over 30 years) anniversary. For such a restaurant I clearly expect changes made to my reservation not only being noted, but obviously acting on a potential new customer. Very disappointing.
