Went with another couple, were seated at the window; great view! Nice choice of appetizers and entrees; our choice was the Blu tappas platter; a very good choice. Entrees (salmon, braised beef) were good. Service was excellent, very attentive.

Met three other couples before the theater - first time. Very pretty Christmas view down Washington Street and overlooking the theater district. Service was excellent, especially considering that our party straggled on over about an hour. Food was good to excellent.
