We had our small wedding here on July 7, 2019 and we were blown away by how wonderful everything was. The restaurant itself has class and elegance to it and provides a very romantic and Intimate ambiance. Everything from start to finish was exceptional. The food was amazing – fresh and gourmet and the service was beyond outstanding 10/10! Alfredo the owner and his team went above and beyond to ensure that our day was perfect and hassle free. Our guests are still raving about the food, service and the venue. The team at Blu made our wedding day a dream come true. There is a reason why this restaurant is rated highly on so many websites and on trip advisors list of top romantic restaurants. We are so grateful to have found this venue for our wedding.

Sana – July 2019

We held a corporate function which included a board meeting at 3:30 pm, cocktails & hors-d’oeuvres at 5 pm and dinner at 6 pm for a group of 13. Our evening went perfectly as planned. I made all the initial arrangements with Dana and his follow up from start to finish was fantastic. Our servers were great and the food even better…everyone was very pleased…it was a superb event. Huge thanks to everyone at Blu. We will definitely hold another event there.

John – December 2018

We just had our company holiday party at Blu and it was a great night! From planning this event with Dana to the execution of the evening everything went over flawlessly. The dinner was delicious and the service was excellent. Working in the service industry we are a tough group but all of our needs were met and I received many compliments today from my team members. 

I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant to anyone! Thank you Blu team!

Jennifer – November 2018

We just had our fourth holiday party at Blu and our team are already looking forward to the next one! As always the venue and setup was perfect, the food was delicious and the staff were so attentive and charming. We made our reservation way back in April and Dana and the event team were so helpful with all of our queries and requests since then and everything down to the last detail on the night was impeccable. Thank you Blu!

Alice – December 2018

Fantastic night! The service, food and space was wonderful. Blu hosted a 20 person dinner event for us, from my very first email/phone call the staff was so helpful and positive. The night was wonderful and everyone who attended had nothing but positive things to say. Thanks so much!
