Nice Tapas type of place

It's located in the top floor of Nordstrom in the mall. You get small portions, similar to tappas type places. It can pricey pretty fast if you decide to eat a lager dinner there. Several small plates should make for a decent dinner, but will top $60. Food is very fresh as well. No canned or other... read more

I've always had a good meal here, and we usually go by the recommendations of the waitstaff. A few favorites: meatballs, beet salad, lettuce wraps. You'd never know you were in the mall!

My spouse and I were in the area on business, and were looking for a good meal without a lot of hoopla. We checked Tripadvisor and came across Blue Stove as an option. The entrees (think appetizer-size) are purposely small to promote ordering a few for sharing. We ordered four, including meat, shrimp and a tomato salad. The total cost... More

It's well-decorated and comfortable. The staff is welcoming, enthusiastic and quite competent. The menu probably would not satisfy the needs of everyone but if you some things you see that you think you would like, you can count on excellent preparation and excellent taste. There's a modest but acceptable wine list. Nordstrom's has done Burlington shoppers a great service by... More

Blue Stove is not your grandmother's department store tea room. Blue Stove, located on the upper floor of Nordstrom's, is an enjoyable respite from giant mall crowds. The restaurant offers diners a wide selection of small dishes and encourages sharing. We especially like two selections: Cilantro Lime Chicken Tacos, which are several small tortillas wrapped around tasty chicken filling; and... More

Coworkers and I found this place as an alternative to other choices in the area. It was a bit of surprise to have it inside the Nordstrom's but food was great nonetheless. I had tomato soup, beets salad, and the scallops with risotto. Prices are decent and service is good. The chocolate mint with the check was a nice tough.... More

Limp greens. Few figs. Good bread and candied pecans. Decent atmosphere. Nothing worth repeating especially in burlington.

Inside Nordstrom's on 2nd floor. Well laid out restaurant that offers excellent tapas style plates. We enjoyed the tomato and basil soup, served hot and perfectly prepared. The toasted gnocchi were done perfectly, heirloom tomatoes and burrata cheese, beet salad with goats cheese and pistachios were starters. The mains were filet, cooked medium rear, salmon and bolognese pasta. For desert... More

This restaurant was located on the second floor inside Nordstrom's. The atmosphere was upscale like the department store itself. The service was very good and the food was excellent. I had the filet mignon with delicious roasted potatoes, carrots and onions. I was skeptical that such a small restaurant would serve this dish. I was pleasantly surprised. The tenderloin was...

I was pleasantly surprised how great the food, service, & staff. My friend and I ate at the bar facing the chefs. It was delightful to watch them orchestrate the operation and such professional and passionate manner. They were pleasant and chatted about what we thought as the menu had just changed. I will definitely go back even if I... More
