About Bleu Northeast Seafood

At Bleu Northeast Seafood we aim to provide a warm, friendly and refined dining experience in a comfortable and modern setting. We celebrate the connection of Burlington and Lake Champlain to the sea by providing the finest quality regional seafood. While giving a nod to the French heritage of the lake’s namesake we draw influence from the St. Lawrence region as well as the New England coast and the Canadian Maritimes. We work with small purveyors and fishermen to ensure the fish are caught or raised with the most sustainable practices possible. In true Vermont style we also work closely with area farmers and food producers to get the highest quality meat, produce, cheese, and baked goods.

Tasteful and comfortable decor. My group likes breakfast there. The menu is varied and full. Everything is prepared just fine. The waitstaff are helpful. We go back often.

Bleu was an excellent choice for dinner! The seafood was so incredible and between the appetizers, entrees, and desserts, we were both stuffed and incredibly delighted! It was delicious and although expensive, totally worth it!

This was not our first time at Bleu, we love it, everything about this place is amazing. We come every year for our anniversary and again they delivered. The crab ravioli is a great app to share for two, the smoked turkey BLT was great and ate the 2nd half as a midnight snack. My husband got the special, Monkfish! It was so delicious, the texture was perfect and the crispy beet chips was a perfect match! Fresh sorbet and a chocolate pot de creme to die for rounded out our night. Definality returning next year, or anytime I want to impress some out of towners.

Reservation was for 7, we appeared with 8. Not a problem! A few minutes and our table was transformed. They told us it would be tight, but it was really perfect - a nice round table too, so we could see and talk to everyone!
Wine and beer lists are great, and we had some of each.
Appetizers were creative - we had baked stuffed lobster , crab ravioli, scallops and pork belly, chowder - all great. Seafood ruled the table - swordfish, fish & chips, surf & turf, and a pasta dish. All great.
Our only complaint was the food was very slow coming out. Our server was great, very personable, but we really think she may have been the only one there. Having worked in the food service industry in the past, we were sympathetic. I don't know if other parties would have been.
We will definitely go again.

We dined here for Thanksgiving during a recent trip. I'm always appreciative of places that are open to accommodate travelers like us on holidays, so we are thankful to the team at Bleu for being open and offering a traditional turkey dinner menu. Sadly, beyond the fact that we were fed, and treated reasonably well that's the extent of the accolades I could give them. The service was fine albeit a bit slow [they were not that busy], the food was fine - certainly could have been worse, definitely could have been better. Would have been extra thankful to not have been absurdly overcharged for my husband's two glasses of wine. If we find ourselves in Burlington again, we'd look elsewhere for a meal. I'd recommend others do the same.

Expected the evening to be excellent, but was disappointed. We were seated quickly and the waitress was very attentive, but we waited a long time to get our food. Surprising when only two tables were occupied. The meal was very lacking. My date had the swordfish, which was decent, but my meal, the salmon, was about as bland as bland could be. I will say the fish was cooked well, but the whole meal lacked ALL flavor. Quite unfortunate since you're paying a hefty price for the dish. The prices were generally expensive for what you received. Not the worst restaurant in Burlington, and in a good location, but likely won't go back.

My wife and I made a reservation for a Tuesday evening. The restaurant was quiet with only a few tables occupied. Our waitress was cheerful, attentive, and knowledgeable about the menu. Unfortunately the food was the big disappointment - overly huge amounts of food piled on the plate, so much so that it took one's appetite away. If the kitchen could improve their plating, and management drop prices a little, Bleu could improve their rating.

We were guests at the hotel and decided to eat here because of torrential rain. The food was very good, the ambiance is very nice. Our visit was a bit thrown off by our server who was not very attentive, or maybe forgetful. It took him so long to bring over a dessert menu that we decided to skip it; we had asked for it with coffee which we received and was more than half way through when he asked if we wanted dessert.

Took my grandparents to this restaurant and we all enjoyed it! They had a great special, but if you’re not interested in whatever they’re serving that day, the mushroom risotto (with or without scallops) and fish and chips were great. Overall, definitely the kind of place you want to bring your parents for parents weekend.
Bonus: bring enough people for that table in the window for an awesome people-watching/lake-view experience!!! We had 5 and they seated us there.

A good restaurant in a terrible hotel. It is somewhat odd that this restaurant is a seafood restaurant since the town it is in is five hours from the coast. A fresh-water lake does not an ocean make.

She was also very helpful and took the time to write us a list of the local scene...places to try. We finished every single bite of our food, including our dessert from this fabulous bakery calles Mirabelles Cafe and Bakery. Thank you Burlington for being such an amazing town.

This restaurant is located in the Marriott Hotel- which it would be most helpful if that was disclosed prior to getting there and trying to find it.
I have to say I was very disappointed in this place. The menu is just plain weird very limited. I expected a seafood experience and what we found was fried fish and chips, lobster roll "salad" and other strange items. I think it is a stretch calling this a seafood anything. The fish and chips were greasy. The lobster roll salad was dry and did not taste fresh at all. The drinks were "off" and overall I think you can find better places to eat than this.

Bleu is consistently a good option for both dinner and breakfast/brunch, especially if you are staying at the hotel. The seafood is good, but the appetizers are really good, especially the fried whole belly clams, which are sinfully rich. The charcuterie plate is also a good choice, as is the green salad with blue cheese. The hamburger is a classic, with tasty fries. The wine list has some nice choices by the glass, and martinis were excellent. For breakfast, the cheese omelet is light and fluffy, cooked just the right amount. Pork sausage is good as a side dish. Pancakes are definitely for the hungry, and quite filling! We had no trouble getting copious refills of coffee.

We went for breakfast/early brunch. Quite empty. Menu is good. Food was above average. Unfortunately service was slow and poor. Waitress spilled water as she was pouring which can happen, no big deal, but never wiped it up, even though she came back several times for other reasons. Had to ask another staff member to do so.

Very pleasant evening without being spectacular.
First choice beer was not available and, with no explanation, our entree took an excessively long time to arrive - that shouldn't happen.
Not the greatest accoustics in the world; got thoroughly fed up with hearing the life story of a blowhard close by, but not THAT close.
Food was very good and the server was pleasantly attentive, except when our delayed entree became overdue.

As usual , food and service at Bleu were excellent. Bleu feels like a grown-up restaurant. You can enjoy conversation and a leisurely meal. There are a lot of nice touches. The complimentary marinated olives that arrive once you are seated are delicious and make you feel welcome. The lemon ice cream, which accompanied the raspberry tart was smooth and creamy, yet light - fabulous.

We were staying in the hotel above the restaurant and just wanted a quiet end to the evening to celebrate the last day of our anniversary weekend. We had the surf and turf and a salad, with a couple of the designer drinks while we watched the sun set. The waiter was attentive, and the food was very flavorful and perfectly put together. Olives and bread were a nice touch. We had also enjoyed the charcuterie plate and drinks at the bar a couple days earlier. The decor was relaxing, and we noted the map on the glass at the back of the bar, and the lovely wood tabletop in the booth where we sat. They also had three kinds of sea salt in a box on the table, which was fun to try with the bread and butter. The food itself didn't really need any additional seasoning. We would eat there again next trip - we missed our chance for the lobster rolls!

The room was very beautiful and where we sat next to the window we had a very nice view of the lake. The food was good and the staff always asked if there was anything else we needed.

We visited Blue to see whether it was really the best seafood restaurant in Burlington. It is not. It is significantly over priced. The food was average at best. The fish and chip dish was unpleasant and the lobster roll very ordinary. We will not be returning and feel sorry for visitors to the Marriott who dine there thinking that it is one of BURLINGTON's signature locations because they are unaware of the vibrant food scene else where in town.

Went on a Monday night and the place was very quiet. It likely picks up later in the evening. Had the scallop appetizer as an entree. The scallops were perfectly cooked. Had the seasonal sorbet for dessert. Kind of underwhelming, honestly. Our server was excellent; just attentive enough. The ambiance is warm and modern. Bleu is a good choice for a working dinner.
