Our Chef’s take inspiration from Billy Madison who drew a blue duck because he had never seen one before, and he wanted to see a blue duck! Well, since our chefs love classic Adam Sandler humor and innovative cooking, we thought that Bleu Duck was the perfect name to showcase our fun environment and staff as well as our unique and creative menu. Just like Billy, we like to try things that you’ve never seen before! 
 
Bleu Duck Kitchen and Oyster Bar is a full service restaurant that provides a fun and welcoming atmosphere where white linens meet a casual feel to create the new concept of “fun-dining”. Co-Owners Erik Kleven and Jennifer Becker regard each customer as a welcomed friend, and aim to provide them with an experience that is both personal and unique every time they visit.

One of our favorite restraunts in Rochester. The Lobster Risotto was decadent. Also great deals for Tuesday date night and happy hour. Excellent house wine and craft cocktails!

This is our second visit to Bleu Duck. The first time was great. This time the wine choices were poor and the muscles we had were not fresh. I'm not sure we will try again.

The food was outstanding. We had the lobster risotto and lamb meatballs. It was Tuesday “Date Night” so the dinner was very affordable (2 entrees, dessert and a bottle of wine for $55). The outdoor seating in the alley was comfortable and the social distancing felt safe. All the staff wore masks. This was my first in-a-restaurant meal in over three months, and it was the perfect .

Husband and I both got the lobster risotto and it was amazing. A little spicy for my husband, but not at all spicy to me. Absolutely delicious, excellent service which has always been our experience at Bleu Duck.

This was our first time visiting since moving to Rochester last summer. Food was amazing, wine was great and the service was friendly. Our server recommended our dishes and they were spot on. We sat on the patio due to COVID and felt very safe. Hope they continue to transform that space into a beautiful permanent seating area. Can’t wait to return!

We had fabulous food on our first trip back for "dine-in" service after the shutdown for COVID. Gazpacho and lobster risotto for me and oysters followed by duck over white beans for my husband. The Bleu Duck has done an awesome job turning the alley into a covered patio. It is beautiful and fun to sit outside in the summer. Thanks to Erik, Jenny and the whole Bleu Duck team!

We really had a fun night, though the food was not that great. The potatoes under my steak were mushy, Brussels sprout, meh! steak and sauce good. Lamb meat loaf way too finely ground and overcooked.
Cocktails were superb and the service fabulous.
Thank you.

We had an anniversary dinner at Bleu Duck. The ambience was ok, the service terrific but the food and wine did not meet expectations. The avocado/mango appetizers needed more flavor. I appreciated that my tofu dish was modified to be vegan. However, the combination of overly spicy chili oil and tasteless tofu and coconut rice was truly awful! My honey's chilaquiles were "ok" and he's not that picky. Dessert was equally nondescript key lime without key lime flavor. So disappointed given prior positive reviews. Would not recommend!

One person had a steak that was tasty, but not as tender as he had hoped/expected. We were pleased with everything else.

We were there for Brunch on a Saturday. Was suprisingly not real busy. Menu was small but we had 3 different meals between the 4 of us and everyone loved their meal. Would definitely return. The bloody mary was good, Palomas and Gin and Tonics on tap perfect. Mimosas $15 unlimited all good.

Wow! Wow! And WOW!!! This place is a true gem. Simple in a good way, yet elegant. Allowing you to take your time, yet very attentive. Short, yet exquisite variety on the menu, e.g avocado tartare - what a fabulous dish. Then there is the quality of food and wine. It is amazing how anyone could get everything just right when it comes to a restaurant. Bravooooo...!!!

This was a great meal experience for my wife and I. she had the beef and I had a lamb meatloaf. Both were excellent and our server went out of her way to make the meal a step above. We had the sea salt chocolate chip cookies for dessert which were a great and sweet way to top off the meal.
