“Great food, Great Service!!” (even for the dogs!)


There are some great local and unique options for dining on the Island of Venice…including Blu’ Island Bistro! We love what we do - creating unique menu options with fresh ingredients. Open Tuesday - Sunday for Breakfast and Lunch, and Friday and Saturday nights for dinner. We love seeing new customers experience Blu’ for the first time.

Read a recent TripAdvisor review about what’s important - food AND service:

"Based on the reviews here took my family for lunch (dogs included) and, wow, could not have been nicer. I had the seasonal salad with blackened grouper and everything was terrific. My son got pancakes and oatmeal, he's 9 and said "they're good." But wanted to go there for breakfast the next morning (we did). Really friendly to our two small (well behaved) dogs. For breakfast I had the seasonal veggie omlet and thought it was terrific. We will go back every time we are in town. Can't say enough good things about the food or the very quick and attentive service...both times."

Fresh Fish in Venice Florida

Blu’ Island Bistro (Venice FL) is known for creating unique dishes with a unique flare. The fresh global cuisine created by Chef Al changes frequently based on market fresh ingredients. Read a few of our TripAdvisor reviews, talking about fresh fish dishes from Blu’ Island Bistro: This charming cozy bistro and its friendly caring staff blew me away. The menu was varied and elegant and staff offered just the right amount of attentiveness. Blu's served THE BEST FRESH GROUPER I have ever had in many decades of Florida travels. Perfectly prepared. My chatty companions and I fell silent when we tasted our beautifully plated dishes. I would travel any distance for a meal at Blu's; it was the culinary highlight of our trip.This restaurant does it all right: quality, atmosphere, size, and service: the best of old and new Florida. Be sure to make a reservation. LaVidaVoca, Boulder, Colorado“VENICE FLORIDA'S BEST !!!!” Reviewed March 19, 2014 NEW Last Saturday night, five of us were first time visitors to this charming bistro. After the dinners we had, we promised each other we would definitely return. Two of our party ordered the filet mignon, which they pronounced as the tenderest they had ever tasted. Seafood was the choice of the other three. Scallops were huge, flavorful and not overcooked. The salmon, covered with a delicious crispy potato crust and smooth lemon sauce,was delicious. The crab and lobster cake entree, filled with this delicious seafood blend (and without the usual breadcrumbs most places feature), was moist and flavorful. All dishes were accompanied by appropriate vegetables. Lest we forget, one of us had the Oysters Rockefeller appetizer, which had earned a medal for the chef and owner. Kudos to our server Tracey, who was most gracious and accommodating and who even brought out the owner-chef Alan to meet us and receive our congratulations for the delightful dinner.
