What our guests say

Hello Alfredo,

I’d like to thank you and your amazing staff for making my 50th birthday party a fantastic event!

All of my guest told me they had a wonderful time -they raved about the food and exceptional service. A special note, Mauricio was over the top incredible! Everyone loved him. He’s warm, welcoming and made sure that everyone enjoyed themselves.

Prior to booking we heard so many great things about your restaurant and now we know why.

We can’t thank you enough.

We will be back again soon.

Virginia Poly. July 2022

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.

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!
