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.
We enjoyed every moment of our special night out. The food was excellent, especially the Baby Kale Salad and the Wild Boar Mushroom Gnoccochi. Portions were generous. The chocolate cake was SO worth the wait. Our server was a mature, knowledgeable, enthusiastic supporter of the restaurant’s offerings and history. Would highly recommend.
Very nice setting
Servers were very polite and knew when to check on us
A beautiful dining room, attentive service and amazing food.
The experience is wonderful and the service is excellent. This was our first visit and we had been many restaurants around the World and it was such a great experience. Our servers are very professional and friendly, it is more than dinning in a restaurant but more like having dinner at home.
Cozy spot with attentive wait staff and a good wine list.
The service and food were great. Live music by Sarah was also very enjoyable. It was the perfect anniversary dinner
We had a very nice, but not outstanding meal at Blu. The food was quite good and our waitress was great. But a couple of things reduce our rating:. We had a reservation. Without asking the host started to seat us in the bar area instead of the restaurant's main area. When I asked he moved us. There were a number of empty tables. Second, the tables are very close together. It adds patrons but reduces the dining experience.
Had a most incredible meal there! Our waiter Don was attentive and funny. We were visiting from there us and spent the whole day out walking. When we walked into the restaurant we realized that this was a fancier place and we were very under dressed. They immediately made us feel at home and relaxed. The food was incredible. We would definitely go back!
Nice experience, good food, good service, very good ambiance. Overall 3.5 stars
Very good meal and amusing waiter with excellent advice on wine choice.
Had a wonderful time, location was convenient to our hotel, service and food was exceptional.
We went there for our anniversary and had an awesome time. Sarah Dell sang and played piano. She has a great voice and a varied repertoire. The service was very attentive. My ravioli was incredible. The waiter brought us a lovely tiramisu with Happy Anniversary in chocolate- classy touch!
We had a wonderful evening celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary! Our waiter was amazing!
The place is beautiful and the service is unbelievable as well as the food. My only negative comment would be the cheese board for 4 people was very small. We ordered 3 different kinds of cheese and got 3 really tiny pieces enough for a small taste. The rest of the food was amazing.
We were four friends from Israel. We arrived after reading recommendations on the place. we had a great time . Our waitress was great. The ravioli was amazing and the hot chocolate cake as well. On my next visit to Toronto I will come back again.
Quality of food does not live up to the price. Menu sounds great but product was not so great. My quests and I left disappointed. Don't mind paying top dollar for a meal as long as you can see and taste the value.
Our anniversary, no comment was made about it. Accommodating for food not being to our liking. Overpriced for the quality of the food. Ambiance with the piano player and singer was very nice.
The atmosphere in Blu Restaurant was incredible and there was a fantastic musician playing piano which makes the restaurant very romantic. I went there to celebrate birthday and they decorated my dessert very beautifully. The service there was the best! Overall an amazing experience at Blu!
friendly and attentive staff! the food was perfect as well
Service, food and experience was wonderful! Our server was so friendly and did such a good job serving us! Unfortunately I do not remember his name but he had the curly man bun! Haha I absolutely love seafood so the tuna tar tar and the sea food linguine dish were perfect for me!!
We will definitely be back!!!
Thank you Blu Ristorante 😊
I love this restaurant, both for date night with my husband, as well as for absolutely stellar, flawless business dinners. My latest visit was for the latter. My colleague and I were able to have a quiet conversation, with excellent service that neither rushed or pressured us, but was always right there when we needed anyone. The salads, mushroom risotto and seafood pasta were all incredible that evening!
