An eclectic menu of small plates, but not just Spanish foods. Some very fine foods, all I have tried are just well done. Excellent veggies too. Many with an asian influence. A good short wine list and a few but fine deserts too. Service always friendly and prompt. OK an unusual, today, spot in the Nordstrom's dept store. Once every... More

A friend suggested we meet at Blue Stove and so glad we did! Lovely decor and cozy booths. I swear the seats are the most comfortable I've ever sat in. We had a great waitress who brought the food we ordered at a nice pace. We ordered and shared the following along with a glass of wine: Roasted Beet Salad... More

Friendly service, and a good selection of tapas for lunch. We shared 4 plates between 3 people which gave us plenty of food. The food was good, and well presented. There is a good choice of wines and craft beers. Service was friendly, and the ambience is nice. Better than I would've expected for lunch in a mall.

We visited here on 4/23/14. Can't rate the food here cause we never made it past the front door. First time trying this place based on trip advisor reviews. We walked in and hung at the front pedestal for a few minutes watching staff scurrying around and wondering if we were to seat ourselves or wait to be seated as... More

Great waitstaff! Attentative, not their fault for poor quality food. Food tastes like dehydrated chinese food rewetted.

I am a big fan of Blue Stove restaurant and a frequent Nordstroms shopper. However, on my last visit, I had a very bad experience. The family restroom was very dirty with wads of paper in the toilet that could not be flushed, paper all over the floor and no soap. Before I met a friend for dinner, I tried... More

Blue Stove is a refreshing alternative to the standardized taste which seems to afflict most restaurants in the area. The food is top-quality, and the small, creative & adequately priced servings encourage culinary exploration and sharing. The wine list features 34 wines by the glass, with some great samples (the Marlborough Shiraz is amazing!). The lighting is a bit too... More

Order a number of tappa style entrees and appetizers to share. It is on the second story of Nordstroms in the Burlington Mall just off I95. The food was incredible for the most part. The chicken tacos needed some seasoning from the southwest. A bit bland. But everything else. Not Italian but Momma Momma Mia. Setting was very sophisticated. The... More

We just had lunch at the Blue Stove in Nordstroms. We started off with the Pacific Rim Organic Sweet Riesling - hard to beat and even harder to find. We ordered Calamari, lobster Bisque, Gnocchi and fried polenta. All the portions are artfully done - the lobster Bisque had lobster tail on top - the dishes are very creative and... More

Food was so-so. Small tapas like plates, good for sharing. Not bad, but nothing to come back to try again. Very nice decor. They serve only wine and bottled beer, no full bar. Last seating is at 8:30pm and they close at 9:30 sharp since the entrance to the place is via Nordstrom store.
