Amazing service and good quality food. A friendly staff as well
Couldn’t have a conversation
Food was ok but nothing special
Would not recommend
My wife and I had an amazing dinner. Thank you to the wonderful waitstaff.
Our experience at Blu restorante was excellent
Host was excellent and our service by Dragan was exceptional
I will highly recommend this restaurant
Always an exceptional evening out at Blu.
Staff and service is top notch, very attentive without being "too much", and they did a nice thing by splitting a shared pasta dish into individual plates for us.
The food is always great, but I am pretty sure that was the best piece of Ahi Tuna I have had in Toronto.
Weekend entertainment makes it a complete night.
The ambience and service was great. Food was ok
Lovely as ever, food great, service excellent and reasonably priced. Will always recommend
This restaurant is located in Yorkville, my favorite area in downtown Toronto. Excellent service, everybody was so friendly and efficient. You don’t have to wait for your dishes for forever. Food were above average. Great atmosphere!!!! They have live music every Friday and Saturday after 8pm.
Felt very young compared to the rest of the customers and felt the food was a little above average.
It was my husband's birthday and Blu was the perfect place to celebrate. I highly recommend this restaurant.
We always go to Blu, consistently phenomenal. The staff is friendly and the service is impeccable.
Amazing spot to bring your date
Great service. Great food. Great ambiance
Definitely an experience 👍👍
Was my second time dining at Blu and it is still a wonderful and delightful place to spend a lovely evening. Great staff and delicious food. I loved it. When I'm in Toronto, I will certainly go there again.
Amazing ambiance, food and service. The food was spectacular and the service were very friendly and informative. We went for an anniversary and were surprised at the end of our dinner.
This was our fourth visit to Blu. It was excellent as always. Food and service are outstanding.
Fantastic food and service. Very engaged and we were not rushed at all.
Not recommended for vegans: Went for my boyfriend's birthday, I'm vegan, but he isn't that's why I didn't pick a vegan restaurant...not good for vegans, limited choices, and bland (the mushroom/leek soup and zucchini pasta anyway). Tomato salad (no cheese) was really good tho. My bf liked the ahi tuna and beet fritter w aoili
we have been here many times and it is always fantastic. A big thank you to Billy as his attention to the table all evening was spectacular. First time for our guest and they were extremely impressed with food and service. "Billy, you made our evening special "
Intimate atmosphere. Great date night spot. Food is always delicious no matter what you order from the menu.
The food was amazing!!! I highly recommend checking out Blu! I had the tuna tartar and octopus to start, and the zucchini noodles with peas and side grilled shrimp as my main, absolutely delicious !
Always a great meal here. Very reasonable corkage at $45 and ask for Bryan, what an excellent server, he made sure we were very well looked after.
Great service and very nice relaxing evening with enjoyable live dinner music. Would be happy to go back!
I’m not sure how we missed this place before. The food was outstanding. The menu was creative and there at least two to three options for my vegetarian husband. The service was attentive but not intrusive. A limited wine by the glass and cocktail list but good selection nonetheless. I appreciated the live music that was just loud enough but never too loud to hold conversation. Highly recommended.
It’s a nice restaurant. Food was great. Hope they have more selections for the desserts.
Perfect venue for our event. Great service and ambience. Was exactly what we were hoping for
We love Blu. From the warm welcome to the friendly exit, our evening here was just about perfect. We had suffered from a tough trip into Toronto on a Sunday in October and this place soothed and comforted all our senses and really pleased us. The menu was expansive and both our choices delicious and more that plentiful. The wine list was well rounded and made good choices easy. All the servers were considerate and professional and the environment is beautiful and restful, with original, easy background musical choices. We plan to return frequently to enjoy this lovely and reasonably priced oasis. We believe that people of all culinary preferences would be very happy to find this place.
Celebrated 6 years with my fiancé and Blu made it beyond special for us! Excellent food and unparalleled service. Looking forward to coming back.
Great Evening. They made our celebration of our 24 th Wedding Anniversary so good. We will recommend to go it's nice place.
Excellent atmosphere, good food and service. We found it as a romantic upscale restaurant.
Comida espectacular, servicio de primera y ambiente muy acogedor
Billy made the night.
All and all good experience. Would recommend it to others.
Excellent location, Excellent Ambiance, Excellent Service, Excellent Food!
Michael was outstanding! Best server we have ever had! Really made the birthday something special! Will 100% be back!
Excellent service and nice ambiance. My partner rated the main course tuna very highly ... and my starter of heirloom tomatoes was outstanding (the sauce made the dish) ... but my main course stuffed acorn squash ravioli was a poor dish that did not befit a restaurant of this quality, being pretty much tasteless (maybe lacking an essential ingredient?? who knows?). The desert tiramisu was not in any way remarkable. Had it not been for the tomato dish, I would have derated the restaurant one star lower.
Not very impressed with the food.
Also, the service was spotty at best
A great evening. I would highly recommend this restaurant and we'd certainly go back. Loved the ambiance! That's a really big thing with me.
I absolutely love this restaurant and come here frequently. The food and service is impeccable and it is also very reasonably priced for what you get. I would definitely recommend Blu to anyone traveling to Yorkville
Kind, genuine service, beautiful live music, and exceptional food - a perfect daddy/daughter/daughter/daughter date!
Amazing service. Romantic atmosphere. Delicious food. Accommodating. Serving sizes were larger than expected 👍👍
Can’t wait to return.
