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.

    Excellent! Such a cool vibe, truly wonderful staff, creative and high quality food, a well curated wine list, and great cocktails. I have dietary restrictions for medical issues, and before I arrived, the front of the house and chef worked together to identify which dishes were my best bets. How amazing is that? Our bartender was welcoming and knowledgeable. We are only in town for a few days and we may change plans in order to return to try more dishes and new wines.

    We went to Bleu Duck for restaurant week 2023. The food and service were wonderful! We enjoyed a five course meal, starting with oysters, followed by a crawfish quest (incredible), albondigas soup (incredible), crispy ravioli with chorizo and barbacoa lamb shank, and then churro bread pudding. The crispy ravioli was good but the portion was very small compared to the lamb shank and a little overpriced for the quantity. Very trendy restaurant! We will definitely be back.

    Came for restaurant week. Overall we enjoyed the pre fixe the soup was definitely a highlight of the meal. There was like a 30-40 minute wait between the soup course and entree which was understandable given the business of the restaurant. That being said it would have been nice to have our waiter check in with us about the delay instead of waiting in the dark. Also they had labeled Modelos as 3 dollars on the menu but charged us 7 dollars for it. A small item but nonetheless some consistency in the pricing would be nice. Also thought both of the main entree of lamb and duck were lacking a little in flavor and seasoning. Again overall the experience was nice and the food was good just felt it could be improved a little.

    We ordered several appetizers and all were outstanding However, my partner ordered Tofu, which clearly sat under heat lamps and was overcooked and dry The service recovery was okay and the meal was replaced. However for the money paid not to receive a credit or offered a dessert was beneath the standard of Bleu Duck.

    The atmosphere is always lovely. Staff is attentive and kind. Our meals were yummy though steak a bit tough. Try the shrimp artichoke starter! They were hosting a big party in the back which delayed our meal but they made up for it with complimentary desserts and after dinner cocktail. They provide very nice service.

    Fresh oysters were a treat. The carrots were very nice with sunflower seeds. The fried rice was accompanied by marrow, but was quite strong tasting: salty and sour. The menu was considerably different than on the open table website.
