"Perfect Spot For Our Mini Reunion"

Perfect Spot For Our Mini Reunion

Blu' Island Bistro (Venice, FL) loves getting feedback from our guests, and prides itself on offering the best friendly service along with a superior, fresh menu you won't find anywhere else. We love to get rave reviews like this recent one:

"We chose this as a central meeting place for a meeting of four Gulf coast classmates. None of us had been there before. The food was excellent, the service was fantastic, the price was right--what more could we ask for? We were all impressed with the extensive menu, generous portions, the food quality and presentation, and the careful attention to individual needs. They were busy, but we had called an hour ahead of arrival and were seated promptly. We liked the relaxed Gulf vibe, with indoor and outdoor seating. After our leisurely meal and coffee inside, we enjoyed the outdoor seats in front to continue our visit before heading our separate ways for home. We thought our meals were an excellent value for the price."

"Another Terrific visit, Dinner This time" 5 of 5 starsBlueMaxx14, Rochester, NY, TripAdvisor, Reviewed April 16, 2015

"We had originally found and visited when they first opened about 2 yrs ago. We went with local friends for a terrific breakfast. This time, we were encouraged to return, as it remains one of their favorites. We booked reservations ( a must do, small place, very popular!), and that was a friendly welcoming conversation, and they followed up with a text message reminder and confirmation. We were warmly greeted upon arriving (7:05 for a 7:15 reservation) and seated promptly. Beer list is small but well thought, wine list also seemed well curated. We were given some suggestions and specials info, and had a terrific dinner. Long Island Duck, and Scallops were entrees, Caprese salad, and sausage stuffed shrimp appetizer. All were terrific. All were right sized portions. Service was warm, friendly, and attentive. The chef and his staff did excellent job, and we left very very happy.” (Source: http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g34705-d2460312-r266087931-Blu_Island_Bistro-Venice_Florida.html#CHECK_RATES_CONT)

Lunch with Chef Judi at Blu’ Island Bistro!

b2ap3_thumbnail_10270436_750972981603527_1271301902606550163_n.jpg
We went LIVE with Chef Judy and ABC News 7 Sarasota! What a great time! Read their take on Blu’ Island Bistro (Venice FL) below: "Just blocks from the beach on S. Tamiami Trail in Venice, this shabby chic beachy theme is quite unique. A Culinary Institute of America graduate, Chef Alan plays with his menu, like offerings such as Philly pork rolls and chicken parmesan burgers. Friday and Saturday nights, dinner is served -- and expect the unexpected, like elk and ostrich with white truffle oil. Chef Alan's mom makes the homemade desserts.” Posted in Chef judi, Local on Friday, April 25, 2014 11:32 am.
