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.

I had read wonderful reviews of this restaurant and we wanted to treat a friend we were visiting to a great seafood meal. Sadly, despite a nice atmosphere allowing for conversation (somewhat of a rarity in dining), we were extremely disappointed in the food we ordered, lobster rolls. They were devoid of any flavor, and as no one in the group wanted to complain (we should have, I know), we simply took the opportunity to spend time together and put up with disappointing our tastebuds. Despite a slight smell of chlorine from the nearby Marriott pool (!), this little place has the potential to be a nice spot for dinner. Perhaps the other entrees are better (our salads, for example, were delicious), but at these prices the menu should not have any drop-out spots.

This was a nice surprise as usually a Marriott has a Bistro-style menu. The fried clams appetizers were divine as was my main meal, the lobster risotto. And the key lime tart was absolutely delicious. We had a cute, cozy table, a super-friendly server, and the ambience with the design lighting was perfect for celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary. And I appreciated it wasn't crazy loud so me and my husband would be screaming all night to hear each other. Thank you for everything and I'm glad all the other restaurants in Burlington were booked that night. The assistant manager talked with us at length at the end of the meal. What a nice guy. Oh...…… the bartender needs an assistant. He was nice but was flying around like he had just downed 20 cups of caffeine coffee.
Five golden stars for you all :)

Bustling place with friendly server, my chowder and salad were lovely. Would have had the lobster roll but never understood the hot dog bun paired with such a lush seafood! Sad that we were too full for desert because the options looked like haven. Would definitely return.

Very disappointing that the window shades completely block the lovely view of the lake. Would think that Sun and glare blocking shades that still allow you to see out would not be that hard to come by.

Bleu is one of my favorite restaurants in Vermont. I am always excited to bring out of town guests who like seafood to Bleu. The service is great, and the food and drinks are delicious! On several occasions Bleu has also been able to accommodate special diets for people I have brought. A vegan friend had one of the best vegan meals she has ever had (mushroom risotto with tempeh we brought for the chef to use) at Bleu. Definitely give Bleu a try!

The food was good, tho for the price I was really hoping it would be amazing. I thought the portion on the calamari appetizer was quite small although the calamari was good. I had the swordfish and thought there was way too much sauce. I would have liked about half that much sauce and a green vegetable with it.

Bleu is now my regular spot for drinks and fine dining. In general the service has been first class, always making me or my party feel welcome. The bar is a good place to go for drinks and my friends and I meet there when we can. The restaurant food has been uniformly good to excellent. I have never felt disappointed., always pleased.

overall very good. i was expecting a bit more lobster in my $40 risotto. Menu needs to include fresh lobster, crab, scallops, others to be truly considered a seafood restaurant. Very happy that they had Blantons!

The food was very good, especially the seafood chowder. The service was fine, but not outstanding. This restaurant is inside the Courtyard hotel. It is small and noisy. Although, Yelp says it is dressy, it is not. It is a bit expensive, but that is no surprise for a downtown hotel restaurant.

We were up to Burlington VT for a weekend during which my wife and I decided to go to a highly recommended restaurant for a leisurely dinner. Since she loves fish (I am a meat/chicken guy) - we found that Bleu offered both. We had drinks, she had an oyster plate, me a greens salad followed by the Oregano Cod and the New York "striploin" -
We decided to throw caution to the wind as we are both conscious of being careful to say "no" to desserts and ordered the Chocolate Pot au creme ! That was awesome !!! and worth breaking the rules for.
Service was nice, prompt but not hurried - we enjoyed the leisureness - the dinner spanned about an hour and forty five minutes....that was ample -
We would recommend it to anyone at any time !!

Not a huge fan of hotel restaurants but food and service were excellent. We only had starters which we huge. Charcuterie plate, pan seared sea scallops & pork belly and fried whole belly clams. Good and reasonably priced wine pairings. View of lake and good location to walk off the excess of dinner along the shore Front.

Customer service was miserable. We ordered a hot chocolate first, didn’t get it until half way through the meal. Water was never refilled the entire time we were there. Didn’t get an English muffin we ordered with breakfast. Didn’t get some fruit slices we ordered. And breakfast for 2 cost $34.00. Also - they cook everything in butter. So if you have a dairy allergy, don’t bother going.

The Pappardelle Pasta with added Seared Scallops was exceptional! The Lobster Roll was good (portion) but lacked flavor "pizazz". Perhaps a little finely chopped celery, green onions, and fresh squeezed lime juice would help. Great table location for our Open Table reservation. Slight view of the lake. Our waitress was helpful, attentive, and polite. Covered parking at the adjacent Hotel Vermont Garage was convenient and complimentary (under 2 hours).

Bleu is the best restaurant in Vermont if you want seafood. Excellent selection of various seafood dishes. The pan-seared scallops and pork belly appetizer dish is out of this world with great flavors and textures.

Staff seemed confused with who was handling our table. Hard to get a coffee refill, same with water. Food took a really long time when it wasn't that busy. One meal came well after the rest of the meals were delivered, and this for our 2 yr. old.
Food was very good, excellent Wild Mushroom Benedict. All diners reported delisicious benedicts or omeletes.

They ran out of Blini's, on a Sunday during graduation weekend? Felt like it was disjointed and improperly managed. Had a reservation, table was set and waiting yet we waited 15 minutes, with the table visibly ready. Appears to be understaffed.

We showed up very late for a reservation due to having some difficulty finding the place. It's in the downstairs of the Marriott hotel, and there wasn't great signing. Despite being really late, they were incredibly accommodating. We had to wait for a table for less than 5 minutes, and they brought us Champagne immediately since we were celebrating our anniversary. Our server was great, and the food was wonderful. We had a great time!

They gave us a table in the busy service runway and we asked if it was possible to get another table. Our waitress offered us to move to an other table. Two minutes later, the manager came to us saying that we had to get back to the other table and that we could not play musical chair like this ... rude is an understatement. We will definitely never go back.
