Diner Reviews
  • "Took some friends to dinner here and really enjoyed the food and service. Highly recommend. I tried and lived the meatballs, scallops and risotto, arugula salad with polenta, and a butterscotch pot for dessert. Will return."

  • "Excellent food, small plates perfect to share. Told them we only had one hour off for our lunch break and they got the food out fast so we could enjoy our lunch. Would definitely return. Fig and blue cheese with dried cherries salad a favorite."

  • "Wow, impressed!! Why aren't all Nordstroms outfitted with this concept? My husband and I were staying in Santa Monica for the week and had quite a few recommendations from our concierge (all expensive). Unfortunately for some reason. It was delicious and much much better than any of the high price cuisine we had while there. The heirloom tomatoes and burrata cheese were heavenly and the crab cakes were actually fully stuffed with crab and not a lot of fillers. We were offered samples of wine and had a very attentive waitress. This was a meal I will definitely be back for: Reasonably priced, outstanding food, great ambience and just an all round fun meal! Thank you nordstrom and please adopt this menu to the rest of your stores!!"

  • "Great small plates allow your group to try a bit of everything or for an individual to custumize their meal. Wonderful! Not a bad thing on the table!"

  • "My date and I stopped here on our way to Cirque du Soleil-Totem in Santa Monica. Most all of the entrees are like good sized appetizer sizes and run between $5 and $10, with a few running a bit more. We ordered 4 that we shared and loved all 4. Bbq pork slides (comes with 2) $8.95, Risotto with Scallops $11.95, Chopped Veggie Salad $6.75, and a Spinach and Apple Salad $6.75. The server was exceptionally helpful and friendly and allowed my date to sample several varieties of wine before she decided. all in all, a very pleasant and tasty experience."

  • "Wasn't sure what to expect, but based on the Opentable reviews we wanted to try it out. We went for a late lunch and since we weren't famished the tapas plates were perfect. We shared six plates between 3 of us and all of them were exquisite. Wish we could try all of them! We may have had room for 1 or 2 more plates, but I'm not a fan of feeling over stuffed after a great meal! We skipped the wine so we didn't see the wine list, but had coffee which was served in a French press, which we like. I also enjoyed the ambiance as it was not noisy. Overall, I'm very glad we decided to eat here."

  • "We really enjoyed the food! It's tapas style, so we were able to try a lot of their dishes. Prices were reasonable as well. The only thing that was off was the ambience - the décor felt dated and didn't seem to fit with the menu. Not a huge deal since the food and service were great! But it definitely doesn't feel like a "happening" place."

  • "Blue Stove has everything! Good food, good service, great ambiance and reasonable prices. Don't let the location fool you. Yes, it is located at the 3rd floor of Nordstrom but once you are in, you are will be captivated by their great service and yummy food. We've been to different restaurants both high-ends and mom-and-pops and nothing has beaten Blue Stove yet. Sooo good!!! Our favorite so far is the Roasted Chicken with Arugula and the Scallop with Risotto. Try Blue Stove, you won't be disappointed!"

  • "I think it's a great place to go if you are tired during shopping! The light hits the spot just right. Server is great. I ordered seafood ceviche, which is very refreshing, but a bit too sour. Salmon...I wish the portion is bigger. But that's fine, just a lunch."
