a nice option for a sitdown lunch while shopping

We stopped in for lunch while shopping. Service was good. The menu is interesting with lots of small plate options. The food was good, not outstanding, all a little underseasoned. But still a good option if you aren't in the mood for the food court or the larger mall restaurants.

We Found this restaurant by using Tripadvisor while we were shopping at the Burlington Mall. The lunch menu consisted of small plates. I don't know if they have a dinner variation. Each plate is large enough to share if you wish. They are also small enough that you can eat two if you wish. My wife and I share some... More

I was a little hesitant at first to have "dinner" here but boy was I wrong ! Our server Omar was great ! He gave us very very good recommendations. The wine selection was very nice and paired well with our plates . If you have to pick one thing to try I would suggest the Crispy & Spicy Dark... More

Relying on other reviews, we decided to give Blue Stove a try for lunch. We thought it was great overall, except for the service which was a bit slow and underwhelming (the reason for the 4 stars instead of 5). They may have been understaffed during our visit. That being said, the food got to our table and was quite... More

We hopped in here to avoid the crowds at the other large restaurants at the mall. It was such a nice oasis and delicious too! I almost want to keep it a secret! The Blue Stove is located on the second floor of Nordstrom in the Burlington Mall. It is a small, beautifully appointed tapas restaurant. It has two bars,... More

Hidden away in Nordstrom this tapas restaurant is well worth a visit. I try to eat here whenever I'm in town on business. The atmosphere is relaxed and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Best of all, the food is delicious. The tapas style menu is very imaginative and the smaller portions allow you to experiment with different dishes.... More

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
