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

I really like the food and atmosphere but the waiter wasn't as friendly as most should expect. I really like the ambience and the music of the restaurant. I just wish the waiter was better at customer service and the light are way to dim to see the menu.

I find the blue door is a very nice restaurant, but always have a hard time with the menu. Althought i'm not a fussy eater, i often found the food either too rich or spicy. Last time i was there i shared two plates (risotto & gnotchi) with my friend so that was just a perfect combination

The Blue Door is closed for the time being. I understand that the owners are trying to sell the property. Hopefully the new owners will bring their own flair to this restaurant. Looking forward to once again reading great reviews about The Blue Door.

A group of us booked lunch at the Blue Door. It's a casual, friendly place with good service, with Thai and other Asian specialities, but also such staples as fish and chips. My scallops bowl had perfectly cooked scallops and the Thai curry noodles were tasty, but the dish seemed quite bland compared with what I expected. Others who had... More

Not my birthday, but my girlfriend's. And since it was her birthday, I was taking her out for dinner and wanted a nice place that would have reliable, and good food. I had been here before and enjoyed it, but she had not, so off we went. This restaurant fit the bill. We had the shrimp gnocchi and the scallops.... More

Have had good food and great service while at this place. Pricing is fair and portions are reasonable. Have had the fish cakes and two of the Thai noddle dishes. VERY GOOD! Only draw back would be the lighting on the main floor, found it dark even for "mood" lighting.

I've been here many times, for lunch, dinner and cocktails. Cocktails are always spot on: well made and reasonably priced. As for lunch and dinner, a few thoughts: As a semi-regular patron over several years, it seems to me that tough times are having an impact here. Portions are very reasonably, but unquestionably smaller than they used to be. The... More
