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.

The meal was outstanding. Our server explained how each dish was prepared and gave us recommendations. The restaurant was busy, but the atmosphere was still relaxing. We will definitely return.

White wine was good-but you need larger selection. Endive salad excellent, Brussels sprouts good. Wagyu meatloaf was very, very good. Monkfish also a very nice dish. The layered crepe cake was outstanding. Enjoyed the evening; thank you. TT

Ben was GREAT! Attentive, welcoming, knowledgeable, and accommodating! The old fashioneds were the perfect combination of strong and sweet, I had two of them! The Duck entree was really good, and the French Onion soup was THE BEST I've ever had! The Salted Caramel Crepe dessert was DELICIOUS! My girlfriend said the Steak was awesome. We'll be back, for sure!

We have eaten here several times now. The atmosphere is wonderful. Our server Nicole was fun and very attentive. This time we chose the wagu meatloaf and I don't think I would order it again. The flavor was very good but it was dry. My favorite entree is the seafood stew.

Food, service and atmosphere were all excellent. Our server was very welcoming and very knowledgeable about the food and beverage offerings. Our only regret is that our visit to Rochester is too short for us to return for another visit.

The roasted branzino was one of the best dishes I have ever had in my life! It sat on top of some roasted apple and sweet potato with kale. The fried polenta topped with Salmon will also be a favorite. The food is always good. The waitstaff are always kind and happy to help. Such a reliably great night out every time.

Outstanding service by Kelsey and great food made Bleu Duck memorable. Oysters were so fresh; polenta fries were so good
and wine list was carefully thought out with lots of great choices.
We had duck and steelhead trout; both good but wished the dishes came out a little hotter. Overall, best restaurant we visited in Rochester and we will return.

I visited Bleu Duck on a Tuesday with a friend. She ordered the duck and I had the beef. We both loved our meals, but they left a bit to be desired because they were small (particularly for the price). The ambience is cozy and the service was wonderful.

What a lovely dining experience. My husband and I were impressed with the delicious food and minute details that make the blue duck so charming. Our server, Ben, helped us navigate the menu options and made excellent recommendations for wine pairing. We would gladly recommend this place and look forward to another visit.

Went in for brunch on the weekend and had an excellent time. The food was amazing and the drinks were unique and fun to try. There was live music that was perfect. Wasn't too loud and the song choices by the musician were great. Would highly recommend this stop to others.
