Arrived about an hour before my business meeting started and had to get some lunch. The BLU was in the hotel and I went there. I do have to say that the food was very good as far as lunch goes. A turkey sandwich that was good and a cup of Tuscan soup, which for me was excellent. Service was good so no complaints. My company is hosting the dinner so I will not get to experience the evening meals at the BLU. I would rate it very good.

Thank Steve B

Dear Steve,

Thank you for your review pertaining to your lunch in BLU. We know that in the Downtown area there are many choices for lunch so we appreciate your trying out the restaurant. Hopefully your company hosted banquets were equally as good. Thank you again.

We should have stayed in the pub next door. Dinner was Ok. No major problems. Expected more 'wow' taste from the food based on the atmosphere. Don't judge a book by its cover.

Dinner at Blu on New Years Eve was fantastic. The food was amazing and so was the service. My girlfriend and I along with my parents enjoyed the service and good immensely, including the two managers on duty who helped with the service including our waiter. Thanks Kristen Katie and Gui for a great New Years Eve.

Great service and location.
This restaurants sits in the lobby of the Marriott in Downtown Louisville, very close to 4th St.
Visited for the breakfast buffet, and although they had a great variety, the food and taste were just okay. Nothing that stood out.
