Service was fast and friendly. I... More

My second time here and it was as good if not better than the first time! I ordered the homemade coffee cake, which was covered in a tasty brown sugar crumble, served warm. It was so good, moist, flavorful! I also ordered the mushroom omelet which had a variety of lovely mushrooms. Cooked perfectly, light and tasty! My husband ordered... More

Blu Island Bistro catered a dinner party at our home and it was a wonderful success! The food was delicious and the service was phenomenal! Though we ordered a number of menu items which included appetizers, salad, the main course, and cookies and brownies for dessert - my favorites were the stuffed mushrooms and the stuffed pork tenderloin. All the... More
