Blu is hands down one of my favorite restaurants in Norman. The waitstaff is professional and competent, yet very friendly. The food is outstanding. The cheese tray and a dirty martini has become comfort food for me after a long day at work. Not to mention the amazing wine dinners they do! So much attention to detail. You can tell a lot of love and attention goes in to all they do there.

Blu is one of those "we'll take care of you" establishments, where the staff will greet you the minute you walk in the door with a smile, seat you quickly and immediately bring you a drink. The food is top-notch (I recommend "The Man Burger" which isn't on the menu) and available late-night which is nice in a college town where most food services close surprisingly early. Also unique to this establishment is the design, which many of my out-of-town guests have mentioned as "something that could easily be in NYC." For those of you who live in Norman, you'll be delighted to know that they stock the beers that Coach's brews.

One of the managers also mentioned that their fresh fish is one of the best items on the menu. Since I don't eat anything that swims, I'll leave that judgment to another reviewer.

Pros: Drinks, steaks and cheese trays as tastey as they are cool!

Cons: You'll have a considerable bill if you enjoy food & drink

The menu read like a dream, as did the decor. The rest was a disappointment. The wait-staff was terrible, it took a long time to place an order, only got 1 refill in the 2 hours we were there. It is a wine bar, so if you want to get hammered before you get your meal, they have quite the good selection. If you're not into wine, I suggest bringing your own water. The portion size couldn't satisfy a 6 year old. A chicken breast, 3 trimmed asparagus spears, and a tablespoon of mashed potatoes. If the food was higher quality that would have been one thing, but the chicken breast had the texture that made it obvious it had been frozen. The fish we ordered was over cooked. This was highly recommended by a wine glutton friend of mine, so I'm guessing, the higher the bar bill, the higher the estimation of the food???

As much as I love trying new things, this restaurant missed the mark by trying to stretch too far. Although the spicy hummus with pita chips is delicious, I felt very disappointed with my entree: one of their specialty pizzas. The crust was much too hard, and the toppings didn't impress me.

As for the service, I've definitely had much better. Our waitress went from non-existent while we were waiting for refills to hovering after we were finished. It seemed like she just wanted us to move it on out so she could get new customers.
