Diner Reviews
  • "Food is not fresh; you can tell the garlic chicken was reheated via microwave a few hours later; the wings were frozen because the chicken wing meat was not fresh and the chopped vegetable salad's corn and vegetables were DEFINITELY from a frozen package. Service is not professional; our waitress needed to shower and clean up (you're serving FOOD, please look like your SWEAT and DIRT are not falling into my food). In addition, the bus boys and different waiters and waitresses would try to grab our plates when the plate was half full-- do they not understand that Blue Stove is a small plate restaurant? We were still working on it..."

  • "My go-to on the menu is the chicken lime tacos, but my server suggested I try the special, steak topped with a shrimp mix, and it was divine! Hope they add this permanently to the menu."

  • "We had about 7 dishes between the 4 of us and all were good.. Some of them I would prefer to have all to myself!"

  • "She was quite impressed - did not expect such good food at a department store restaurant. We both had the chicken tacos, and they were delicious, as always. Small plates are just the right size. We each had a glass of Proseco as well, and it was a lovely dinner."

  • "I have been here a few times with my husband for lunch and just recently with a dear old friend. The food has always been consistently delicious, is well priced and portions are a nice size for 1 or to share and taste. I find it to be a nice change of pace from the other restaurants in the mall and a wonderful place for a delicious light bite, glass of wine or cocktail and conversation."

  • "The Blue Stove in Nordstrom at the Oaks Mall in Thousand Oaks serves a large variety of tapas. Each tapas plate is perfect for sharing by two or three people. Our group of four ordered a total of eight plates, and the amount was just right. Sharing and comparing favorites was fun. All agreed that the risotto was our favorite and the mini-tacos were the runner-up. All the dishes were well-prepared and tasty. The bill was $100 without alcohol. Reservations are advisable. We arrived before 6 on a Saturday night. By the time we left at 7 the place was full."

  • "Who would think a store would have a restaurant that serves such delicious food? Well yes, it is Nordstrom so it's probably not that surprising but honestly, everything I've had at the Blue Stove has been completely yummy. My favorite is the Cilantro Lime Chicken Tacos. Then there's the Ricotta Meatballs, and Sweet Potato Fries with killer Cilantro Aioli, Arugula Salad with Parmesan Polenta Croutons...You can't go wrong with anything on the menu."

  • "The beet or vegetable salad is a great first course, both delicious. The short rib sliders excellent. The cherry glazed beef is a favorite, although we found it a bit dry this visit. Black Cod is superb, salt and pepper calamari crunchy. The skirt steak is also a nice beef choice. Both mushroom dishes are quite flavorful. The wine by the glass list is interesting. The atmosphere is darkish, but gives a nice upscale feel - you forget you are dining inside Nordstrom! Our server, Kristen, was great although some training seems prudent - once a diner has a glass of white wine and then orders a different, red wine - the server should always put it in a new, clean glass. So the service isn't as polished, yet we found it delightful."

  • "Tasty, creative small plates that are meant to be shared. The hard part it deciding which items to try. You can't go wrong with the lime tacos and the cherry glazed beef. The menu varies on what local produce is available, but there is always something new to try."

  • "The service is not that great, had to flag down the server more than once. Food was not all that. This is definitely ok for lunch, but not up to dinner standards. I did like the tacos, but other dishes had too much salt. I was sorry I wasted a Saturday night on a Nordstrom Restaurant."

  • "Combined retirement and new team member welcome. Love this place for a special work lunch. Pricies are reasonable and the food is amazing. It seems they have cahnged the braised beef recipe and I like the old receipe better. Otherwise, this restaurant alwasy delivers."

  • "Took my wife out a date after 35 years of marriage. Restaurant was clean the atmosphere was good and she enjoyed it once you looked at the table and found flowers on there. The food portions were the correct size for two to happily enjoy a lite meal. I would recommend this place for a romantic get away for dinner or lunch."

  • "We had a few frequent diners with our group of 8 who knew what to order so that we could maximize the number of taste sensations. From the spicy chicken lettuce cups and black cod with miso to the sweet potato fries and risotto it was all delicious. We ordered two of each item so that everyone could sample a bit - we ordered a lot, ate a lot and left very happy. Having a larger group is a bonus (make reservations for larger groups, the restaurant was packed). The atmosphere is dark,noisy and energetic. Lots of tables were using their flashlight apps to read the menu"

  • "The food is fantastic! I've been here three times and I haven't found anything I didn't absolutely love. The service tends to be slow, but the atmosphere, food and wine list more than make up for it."

  • "The tacos are so tasty I will make a special effort to drive 25 miles from home to eat here. There are other good options on the menu, fun to share several of the small plates."
