We had tickets to the Opera House, so we picked blu because of its location. Service was excellent. Food was wonderful. Good selection of entrees. On the smaller, more quaint, size, so get a reservation. Does have window seating that one could look out onto...More

Our meal was very mediocre and blah. Everything was the same color and texture. The restaurant has gone downhill since our last visit. Would not give it another chance.
