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.

This restaurant consistently delivers an incredible dining experience. Cocktails, food and service are top notch. They use interesting ingredients creatively and every bite is delicious. I totally recommend this restaurant-truly it’s one of the best in the Midwest.

Once again, food was excellent, service outstanding and a great dining experience. I hope you can continue to offer outside seating for this fall - we will bring lap blankets!

We love Bleu Duck and are so happy they have outdoor dining. My husband is a Mayo cancer patient and otherwise we could not eat at Bleu Duck these days.

Love the date night special! Love the atmosphere! The food is always has great presentation and taste! Service was extremely slow and we were unsure of who our server was as it seems we had about three different ones.

The outdoor seating was very well set up, service was very good, and the food was exceptional. The person I was with ordered a cocktail, and he thought that was very good as well.

Liked the outdoor ambience and the food was generally good, but not at the level I would expect at those prices. I had heard great things about this place, and was fairly let down. The seafood stew had shrimp with their hard shells still on them, making it difficult to eat. I ordered a drink that never came at all. And the appetizers came late at the same time as the main course. Overall, it was an okay experience, but I wouldn’t rate it as highly as other fine dining in the area (Terza, Five West, etc).

I went there for the Tuesday night date night.
The food was amazing and our service was excellent.
We couldn’t have asked for a better experience.
We tend to be very cautious in this Covid environment and we felt very safe.
Thank you for a wonderful dining experience

My first time dinning here. Our food was spot on with aroma, appeal and mostly favor. I ordered the Salmon and my friend ordered Seafood stew. We both were very pleased. We topped it off with desserts which was to die for...Oh and I forgot we had an appetizer that was with beets and mozzarella. All were well worth the $$$$. We will be back again!!!

The weather was poor, so I received a call letting me know our outdoor reservation had been moved inside, and the seating would adhere to social distancing guidelines. I was glad to see they had gone above and beyond and really spaced out their seating inside. Always a thoughtful place!

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!
