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.

very nice staff, delicious food but quite small. There was no place for us when we arrived. Sat at the bar and stayed there although a table opened up in 15 minutes. We enjoyed it and will return.

The music is now much louder and younger genre - moving towards upscale hip rather than classic fine dining but food is still amazing

Blue duck date night has always been a favorite of ours. The entrees are fantastic along with the service. We appreciate having a once of a kind restaurant in Rochester.

We had a wonderful Sunday brunch. The food was very good. We had a reservation, and we allowed to come early as our plans changed. We were seated right away and given options. Restaurant has a good ambiance. it isn’t overly loud, so able to have a conversation. Service was good and fit what we needed. Didn’t pressure, but also didn’t disappear.

The cocktails were great but food was disappointing. My breakfast stirfry was much too salty. All breakfast potatoes served were pretty dry and probably prepared early morning and served throughout Easter Sunday brunch service. With that said we did have a late reservation.
Wait staff appeared unhappy and overworked. Our waiter was perspiring a bit, hopefully not on our food!
We same three dined with you once before in 2019 and it was wonderful. We will be back for another try. Thank you.

The amount of food was so little compared to the price we pay.
We would not go to the Bleu Duck Kitchen anymore and do not recommend to friends.

The food sounded interesting but was disappointing. I ordered a beef tartar that was 1/4 beef pieces , 1/2 capers and 1/4 celery in mayonnaise. No beef flavor detected. Ordered a bone marrow that was lovely but a second at the table was all bone. There was also essentially no meat in the poutine and no gravy. The hash also was underseasoned and not enough protein to detect in the flavor. Expensive . One plate was nicely done piece of fish. Disappointed overall but the waitress was very nice and effecient.

The atmosphere at the Bleu Duck is so relaxing! The service was wonderful, the food tasted amazing, and I thoroughly enjoyed my time! Please continue to book Clay Fulton for music. His voice and guitar skills are amazing and he played an awesome variety of originals and covers.

Thank you!

It’s just the best brunch in Rochester full stop. It’s a classy joint that feels approachable. The staff appear to love being there which makes them feel like friends. And the food is next level, like you are going to make noises from a foodgasm so make sure your table mates are aware and cool with it. If I could make a reoccurring reservation for brunch I would, I just hate taking a seat away from a newbie. Anyways if you are still reading this just make a reservation already!

Brunch at the Bleu Duck was amazing! We all ordered the eggs Benedict with braised ribs, and shared an order of fresh donuts. The food was delicious, tasty drinks, good portions, and perfect for a weekend brunch. Look forward to coming back to try out the other menus!

The food and service were great. We both ordered the Pork Belly and loved it, one of the dishes l’ve had in Rochester. The reason for the 1 stars was the absolute disregard for limiting seating capacity as the state has mandated due to Covid. The table behind us was so close that the chair hit mine when the patron was seated! We would have walked out early on if we knew they were planning on seating all the tables.

Our waitress, Kelsey was fantastic. We were meeting a friend that we had not seen for years, and were concerned about table turnover. Kelsey went out of her way to accommodate us.
The food, 1 steak, 1 scallop and 1 pork was great.
Our quest from out of town was very impressed.
