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!
Enjoyed a lovely evening with a wonderful meal dining al fresco! The service was spectacular and a nice space has been created so we can continue he to enjoy dining at Blue Duck!
Lovely outdoor patio to accommodate these Covid days.
Absolutely fantastic! Great spacing of tables, wonderful service and fabulous food! We love Bleu Duck and we are so happy you are doing what you do beads!
Amazing as always!
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.
Terrific service in a lovely outdoor setting. The watermelon salad was divine!
The similar quality dining you can expect in the cities. The menu is diverse and contemporary.
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 .
This place is incredible! The food, staff and atmosphere were all memorable and absolutely perfect! If you haven't been to the Bleu Duck, get there now!
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.
We were thrilled to have the option of eating outdoors.
We’re going back soon!
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!
Great date night spot! Funky fresh new food. Great wine list
The Bleu Duck team continues to raise the bar for fine dining in Rochester! Excellent service, food presentation and flavors that create lasting memories, top-notch drinks, and a beautiful setting - such a lovely experience all around.
Great atmosphere, sitting outside enjoying fantastic cuisine.
The food is just really good, tastes so fresh and clean...
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.
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.
The food, service and atmosphere were all wonderful! Definitely a new place for us to celebrate special occasions.
Love the food and service, perfect night!
Despite a busy evening @ Bleu Duck, the meal was superb. We enjoyed our time there!
Great oyster bar!
Great experience. We did their “date night” Tuesday and we had excellent service and food. Also tried their oysters, which were amazing.
Spectacular ingenious menu and the food lives up to the menu. Stirling service too. Best meal we have had in Rochester
I have gone there numerous times and been pleased with quality of food. But this time was a disappointment. Salmon in parchment paper was boring, lacked flavor.
Great food. Awesome service. Will go back here often.
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.
Server was amazing. Very knowledgeable about the menu!
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...!!!
I believe Bleu Duck has the best food in Rochester. That, coupled with the excellent service from Nikki, makes for a great evening!
Made the perfect valentine date night. Highly recommended
Excellent food and ambiance. We ordered the beef and the chilequiles as entrees.
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.
Our waitress was great. And some of the best fresh oysters you can get
Unique and fantastic food served by an amazing staff!
Great food. We love the date night specials! It’s our go to place
Bleu Duck has a wonderful selection of oysters from around the United States. The ambience is fun and the site is wonderful for a night out.
