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.

We were here for brunch on Mothers Day. It was a last minute decision so our choices were limited. We were pleasantly surprised by the food, it was very good and for that alone this gets my recommendation. Unfortunately, we had the last reservation and we were definitely encouraged to move along by the staff (places cleared and bill brought before 2 of our party of 4 had finished eating.) The other negative is ambiance, its a hotel lobby/lounge/restaurant - its dark and generic.

Very good meal - food was excellent, service was a little slow - felt like kitchen might have been a bit understaffed. But we had a great experience overall and would recommend. Pricey but quality of food met the price expectation.

We had an excellent meal at Bleu. I recommend it for people who enjoy high quality ingredients served up in a delicious and beautiful way. This is not an inexpensive restaurant, and it should not be - it is fantastic and the price point matches the quality of the experience. An excellent choice for people with discerning taste.

We visited Bleu for our first time during restaurant week. Each course was outstanding; delicious, nicely presented, and generous. Our “primary” server was great; very personable and efficient. There were other random servers that also stopped by our table which was a little confusing. The restaurant week menu was a very good value but drinks were a bit pricey.

Food quality was excellent however 50+ minute wait time for brunch for a table of 9 is ridiculous. Server was nice but showed minimal attentiveness. Manager was responsive and apologetic for situation. Bottom line VERY slow service but phenomenal food

I had never been to Burlington before and had no expectations. The dining room modern
And comfortable with a view of the lake for some tables. The menu was creative, just the right size. The staff was very friendly and offered a nice wine list. It was also restaurant week.

The atmosphere is lovely, especially at sunset. We were very satisfied with the service. Food was good but not excellent. We shared a very nice Charcuterie board as an appetizer 1 diner's swordfish was a bit overcooked and quite oily (? added oil). The salmon was very good. The bouillabaisse was mostly mussels but flavor was good.

Exceptional service from Timea and the rest of the staff. The large, boisterous party in the dining room was a bit of a distraction, but the host was accommodating and took steps to make sure we were still comfortable and enjoying our meal. Incredibly delicious food (some of the best scallops I've ever had), and overall a great night!

It was visit day for new admits at UVM so the restaurants in downtown were packed. We went to open table to find an alternative in the area, and Bleu came up as having openings. When we realized it was in the Marriott we were a little suspect at first, but it turned out to be an amazing meal. I had the papperadelle which was wonderful, and someone in my party had the trout, which I regretted not ordering. It was delectable.

If you're looking for a great place for seafood and a quiet atmosphere and a spectacular view of the lake, I highly recommend Bleu.

This was better than expected/anticipated. We have stayed in the hotel previously and haven’t thought to eat in the restaurant, much to our chagrin after dining at there recently. Food and service were fantastic and the ambiance was very nice. We will return in the future, certainly if we say at the hotel.

We had one dish (cider mussels) that was out of this world good. The fish and chips were okay. I had the special and it was yummy but the smoked rutabaga was pretty terrible. Thin and chewy. Not a good way to go for rutabaga. The cocktails were good. The service was pretty good except for the fact that they didn't wipe down the table after a course. We got some yummy VT cheeses and port wine for dessert however that's pretty standard for most places downtown. The noise (band) from the bar was a bit loud. We were having a hard time hearing each other across the table. My partner is a bit of a quiet talker so it wasn't as cozy and chill as we thought it would be.

We had received a gift certificate to Bleu for Christmas so we went on a Friday night in February. The setting was lovely - soft lighting, a window seat, comfortable seating. Our waitress was attentive but not omnipresent! Just the the right combination of being attended and being left alone. The food was superb in both presentation and taste. Green Lentils came with my roasted Char. What a nice change from potatoes or rice. My partner had polenta sticks with his swordfish. I love that they think creatively! Dessert of apple tart with cinnamon ice cream finished a delicious meal.
