I've visited this venue twice and had enjoyable experiences both times. All of us who visit Park Ave often know how nice it is to sit on the patio and people watch while enjoying a great meal. This experience surpassed even that. Perfect location, food and while the servers were stretched a little thin, the hostess and manager Sean stepped in to help and more than made up for the initial lag in having our drink orders taken.

Fantastic Happy Hour selections, you must order the oysters on the half shell, some of the best I've had! The Beet and Gorgonzola Salad and Ahi Tuna burger also also great choices.

On my second visit I took a group of approximately 10 people and everyone enjoyed everything from apps to the sushi rolls to the entrees. Service was great. Nothing is perfect, but they were courteous and quick to correct my ahi tuna being overcooked and deliver a perfectly rare replacement in a short time.

Definitely recommend it and its sister restaurant next door, 310 South.

Visited with another couple for happy hour and early dinner. Current happy hour special includes a dozen Oysters for $7.00! Good size and sweet to boot. Also had a salad and some sushi both of which were good. Nice friendly service in a pleasant environment. Certainly worth a try if your in the area.

What 12 Oysters for $7.00 are you nuts? House wine $5.00 a glass. We tried Blu because we love going to 310 next door(same owners) how bad could it be? Well it was just the best new place in Winter Park that we tried. We had a dozen oysters a salad and a roll. Everything was just great. We are going back as soon as we can.

Please skip this restaurant! The food is not worth the money, the food is effortless and very pretentious! I had the Crab Louis Salad which cost $15.00 and there was small lump of crab, a lump of chopped egg, 4 slices of tomatoes, 3 slices of avocados and three strips of romaine lettuce. Nothing exciting or tastefull about it. My friend had a chicken pannine sandwich which had raisins on it, was very bland and not cooked well. I would definitely NOT recommend this restaurant.

A recent visit to this new restaurant was pleasant if not outstanding. Our table ordered burgers which were very good, sushi which while fresh was bland and not very good and pasta which again was edible but not great. The restaurant was almost empty( compared to many other places on the street that were packed). The best thing about the place was our server who was friendly, offered suggestions and gave great service.
