Blu Ristorante Ratings and Reviews
Ambiance was amazing. Owner really took care of us and exceeded our expectations. Food was great and he added a little touch on our dessert for our anniversary. Left the restaurant thinking I definitely will be back. Great place to go for a date with your significant other.
It was our anniversary and we were surprised with a complimentary prosecco. Very kind and attentive. Delicious food. The only thing I didn't enjoy: the music. I was expecting piano jazz, but there was a not-so-good pop singer instead... But I will definetely go again.
I would recommend this restaurant for everything. Never disappointed wth food or service
Always seem to sit next to people who are loud mouths and never seem to stop talking. Annoying when you're having a nice dinner for two. However, not everyone will be bothered by this.
Don, who has been our sever for all times we have been, has a great sense of humour and a real pleasure to interact with.
Great establishment. Will return indefinitely
Food was great service was poor - waited very long between meals - waiter was rude, we ordered appetizers, waited at least 20 minutes to later find out that he had forgotten to place our order because he had a long day - didn't even bother to follow with an apology.
Went to Blu to celebrate Mother's Day. Fantastic experience and ambient. The menu was fixed for the occasion. Antipasti and desert were amazing. Main course was fair. We (in a group of 3) ordered different courses so I tasted half of the options available. In my personal opinion they lacked some classic inspiration to Italian food. Even though I respect the fine dining concept, I believe that they should bring some of the traditional menu into their fusion approach. If they had checked that item on the list, it would have become my favourite spot in town.
We arrived at Blu and the place was definitely buzzing. Every table was occupied. The atmosphere was quaint with mood lighting yet lively with people laughing and conversing, wine being poured, live music in the background while the is staff running around, tending to tables and ensuring everything runs smoothly. We got seated right away but didn't get service for quite a while at first. We were understanding to this because there were some much larger parties that were just being served their food or getting ready to leave as we were coming in. Having been raised in the restaurant industry I understand that these sometimes take priority to new tables with smaller parties for various reasons. I respectfully approached a manager letting him know our situation. He apologized for the wait and from then on our night was wonderful. They definitely made it up to us. The food was amazing... I had the grilled calamari followed by the Filet Mignon and I'm still dreaming about it! We will definitely return.
Brought my wife and mother for an early Mother's Day dinner. Fantastic food, great atmosphere and our waiter was awesome. Attentive, personable and friendly.
Will recommend to any of our friends and family, and would love to go again on a Friday or Saturday where they have live music!
