It was a nice place, but given the way it was advertised I was expecting a lot 'more'. The food was good as well as the service, but I had thought the view, ambiance, and overall experience would be better.
Just googled restaurants with a view and Blu was the best restaurant we went to all weekend. Did not disappoint. We got the calamari and sirloin steaks that were in an amazing red wine sauce. Highly recommend and the view was also great! Was a little pricey, but worth it. When we are back will definitely come again.
Amazing service, great food and beautiful view!
Excellent food! Great service.
Loved the city view!
Will definitely return.
Honestly the food wasn’t great, not worth the price, but the drinks were lovely and the staff was as well.
Our experience at Blu was amazing! The service was spectacular, our waiter was so attentive and made our anniversary dinner that much better! We had an AMAZING city view and the ambiance was romantic and chic. They also had a vegan option for my boyfriend, which is not easy to find in fine dining restaurants in Boston! They even gave us a voucher to save money on parking! I would definitely go back and would recommend to anyone looking for a night date night spot.
I took my girlfriend to Blu for out 1 year anniversary and made a reservation a month in advance to let the staff know so we could be given seats with a view of Boston. When we arrived, they bumped my table to one in the center of the dining room surrounded by other guests in favor of a large party that was coming in later. Otherwise the food and service were great, but I did not like the fact that they did not accommodate us as requested because the view was the sole reason I had made reservations there.
Hi Walter. I am so sorry we couldn’t accommodate your request. Due to COVID-19 regulations we are very limited and have only half of our capacity. We try our best to accommodate all reservations that request window seat, but it’s mostly first come first serve as pretty much all reservations have the same request. I am glad that you enjoyed your dinner and had a good time celebrating your anniversary. I apologize again, hopefully you can join us another time. Happy Anniversary!
I was very happy to go to Blu for a birthday dinner. We had a lot of fun!
Thank you for choosing blu to host your daughter’s birthday dinner. Hope to see you back soon.
This was a very classy place, great spot for my friend and myself on our weekend getaway. The view was beautiful, the food great, service quick and our waiter was so so nice and friendly! Loved it!
Thank you so much for joining us!!!
Great meal and great service
Thank you for joining us!
Didn't know what to expect with the crazy COVID rules and regulations put in place by Gov Baker. Blu did a very nice job of making the restaurant warm and hospitable. The tables were all spaced far apart with no "dummy" tables scattered about. It felt like we were just having a regular night out pre-COVID. The food and presentation were excellent. I had Diver Scallops and my wife had Swordfish. They were both prepared perfectly, even the Risotto was done perfectly. Our waiter was Delo and he was great; very attentive and right there when we needed him. We stayed for cappuccino and dessert. You can't miss with Blu.
Thank you so much for choosing blu. We are so glad that you enjoyed your dinner with us. Hope to see you back soon!!
Atmosphere is beautiful, food is good, service is professional.
Thank you so much for joining us!!!
Great view food was just ok. My daughter had a Cesar Salad that was soggy, entries were not what you would expect from a nice restaurant. Very disappointed
Thank you for joining us
We enjoyed a Steak and Chicken - the steak was appropriately cooked but the chicken was too dense to cut and thus not eaten - no one noticed. The crème Brule dessert was very good. This place is VERY difficult to find, little to no signage. A very nice setting with nice views of the theater district but the food was disappointing. Service was professional and attentive.
Thank you for joining us.
Such a cute Birthday dinner!
Thank you so much for choosing blu to celebrate your special day!
My boyfriend loved his birthday dinner ❤️ Definitely will be going back

Thank you so much for choosing Blu to host your birthday dinner, glad you had a great time. Hope to see you back soon.
I hate complaining, but, the service was far away from FAIR!
I’m sorry, but it’s true
We are so sorry that you didn’t like your service, hope you give us another chance as it seems that you enjoyed everything else. Thank you for joining us.
So I can now say, yes I've been to blu! Having heard about it, I can also say it's worth it - and yes, I'm likely to return. Seriously, the food - prep and presentation - is 1st rate, and that's reason enough to go. So go!
Thank you so much for joining us, we are happy that you enjoyed your dinner at Blu. Hope to see you back soon.
Absolutely amazing! This was the first time I’ve ever been and I fell in love. The server was wonderful and so timely! 11/10
Thank you so much for the great review, we are trilled that you enjoyed your night with us. Hope yo see you back soon.
Great dinner with my mom for her birthday. Service was attentive and not rushed. Food was amazing....short rib excellent, as well as the chicken entree. Dessert over the top, amazing creme brûlée's as well as bread pudding. The restaurant is beautiful and nice big windows looking over downtown....good for special occassions and just a nice night out. Support your local businesses!
Thank you so much for choosing Blu to celebrate your mom’s birthday, it was a pleasure having you. Hope to see you back soon.
Great View of the theatre district and downtown crossing.
Thank you so much for joining us, hope to see you back soon.
The food has no flavor very bland. Only liked the three cheese scampi. Even messed up with the Shirley Temple.
We are so sorry you didn’t like your meal and we try hard to please all kinds of tastes. Hope you can try us another time as we change our menu seasonally. Thank you for joining us.
Loved the atmosphere, the food, and the fabulous waiter (Phillip (?), works on Tuesday nights). Our waiter was so helpful in pairing our appetizers with our entrees, along with our wine of course. He was right our with the recommendations. I had the duck which was fabulous and prepared well.
We also loved the convenience of parking in the garage below and just taking the elevators up. There were three in our dinner party, and we all have a wonderful evening and we all enjoyed our dinners. I would definitely return.
Possibly the best view of any dining experience I’ve ever had, and the service was there to match. The seafood was superb, and this is coming from an Alaskan. Highly recommended.
Great city views!
Thank you for joining us!!!!
Always a excellent experience at Blu. The service is exceptional which is one of the reason that I choose Blu as a perfect and recommended restaurant to go.
This was my third anniversary that I went to celebrate at Blu.
Thank you so much for joining us. We really appreciate you choosing Blu to celebrate your anniversary. Hope to see you back soon! Happy Anniversary!!!
It’s good, nothing extraordinary.
Our server was simply amazing! Best service in Boston! He was very thoughtful and attentive throughout the entire evening. The food was great but the service made our night! Thank you!
Thank you so much for the great review. We really appreciate it and are really glad that you enjoyed your dinner with us. Hope to see you back soon!
Always make it a point to have a night out at Blu when in the city! Spectacular views and service as always!
Thank you for joining us! We really appreciate your feedback. Hope to see you back soon !
Thank you for joining us!
Great experience overall. The huge windows overlooking Washington St are great. The vibe is sleek but not stuffy. Food is amazing with wide selection of meat or seafood dishes. Appetizers excellent especially tuna tartare. Service is top notch, friendly and attentive especially Phil. Go local and support non chain restaurants.
Thank you so much for joining us and thank you for the great review. We really appreciate it! Hope to see you back soon!
My server was terrific!
Thank you so much for joining us!
Always exceptional in food and service. ....the view’s not bad, either 😄
Thank you Mary! Always a pleasure having you!
Blu was amazing. the food was great. the portions were huge and the view was amazing
The food was great, everyone loved what they had. I had the scallops with a lobster risotto, scallops were perfectly cooked. A guest had the short rib which they said was amazing. I tried a couple different cocktails, both very good, though a little on the weaker side. We didn’t have one of the tables with the awesome view, but the ambiance was still ok. We were there for dinner before a show, the waiter asked us about that, and was great at making sure we were out on time. Only complaint is it was over priced. I have had similar quality food for less.
As always, our server, service and food were excellent!
Beautiful restaurant and the staff were very nice and the service was good considering the dinning room was full with pre-theatre diners and while the menu was interesting, it didn’t live up to expectations.
We started with the signature tapas platter and all 3 sauces were lacking the bourbon sauce was not rendered down properly and the lollipop lamb chops were over cooked, maple sauce on the scallops (bay) on pork belly was way too sweet and while the fish nuggets were prepared well the sweet chili sauce again was too sweet.
The sword fish was slightly over cooked and under seasoned but the lobster mashed potatoes were very tasty.
My husband did enjoy the braised short rib, nice portion and cooked well.
Very convenient to the theatre district, but will try a different restaurant next time
