Swordfish main was bland and tasteless, if not for the kale and cauliflower it would have been a miss. Also had an appetizer that was a little weak. Restaurant has nice decor and could be something good; disappointing that it was only average.

We had a fabulous meal at Blu. As soon as we walked into this elegant but comfortable space, we were greeted warmly. The maitre d' took our coats (no hanging/checking them ourselves) and showed us to a lovely corner table. The service was discreet but...More

My subject line says it all. Go and enjoy. No hesitation in recommending this restaurant. Just to add that the entertainment, was a guitarist on the evening we went, was very accomplished and was not intrusively loud as often can be the case.

Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its
most stylish high-rise residences and heritage
buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden
arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel
from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of
