This was our first visit to the newly reopened Blue Door. We were impressed with the menu which has some interesting choices such as duck gnocchi (main) and Korean lettuce wrap (ap). Food was very tasty and well presented. We had an experienced and knowledgeable waiter (Craig). There is also a good wine list, with lots of interesting red wine... More

Just dropped 100 on a poor meal at the Blue Door. I actually couldn't complain as I was not asked once how my meal was. We waited 18 minutes after having plates removed until we got our bill (we had to ask for it). Had the lettuce wrap with tofu and kimchi for an appetizer and the scallops for main.... More

I had great expectations, the food was good and service attentive. However, although this is probably one of the best places in fredericton, it is overpriced and I cannot imagine it could be once Canada's top 50 restaurants. If you want something truly special, cross the street and try Ten Resto.

My friend and I went here for a mini-celebration and we wanted someplace reliable. We were a bit leery, having heard it was under new management, but as it turns out, all was good. We both had an app, a main and a dessert and we were fabulously pleased with all of them. One special of the day salad, one... More

Blueberry Flambe desert suggested and prepared at the table by Craig was superb. Thai curry chicken, Scallops and salad were memorable.

Before getting critical, I applaud the service, atmosphere, and concept. However, the food was underwhelming. The duck gnocci sounded great but in my opinion needed more flavor. The Thai red curry was quite good but double the price of what it would be at other places. While this experience was definately sub par and not worth the price, I might... More

Thank you for taking the time to let us know how we are doing. This is the first complaint about the duck gnocchi, so I hope this was an isolated incident. We try and use all fresh ingredients while making our dishes including the chicken where we cook it in house. Unfortunately due to this, causes the price to be... More

We understood there were new owners for this downtown restaurant, having been recommended by B&B host as we were passing through Fredericton. Interesting menu, fusion feel for some dishes, lovely fresh flavours. I appreciated mussels with green curry and coconut broth - waiter helpful in assuring me it was not extended by real milk, as I'm lactose - intolerant, delicious.... More

It's a shame...The Blue Door has everything Fredericton needs but it just falls short...The restaurant itself is gorgeous, it has an amazing wine selection, great menu but you get a 50/50 chance of a good meal. I have been there for Christmas parties with 20 in our group and everyone had a delicious meal, and I have been there with... More
