Enjoy this little sanctuary inside Nordstrom's....beats the hell out of the food court! All holidays are very hard to get reservation even lunch midweek is rather busy. The little plate prices have gone up a bit but but the Polenta is worth it!! Chicken tacos still amazing too... Grab a girlfriend and take a Blue Break!

It's great to grab a bite in there for some really good food. Everything I have tried there has been great and I think I am pretty picky. Portions are small but still satisfying. I love going there.

Many people are unaware that Nordstroms had a small restaurant . It is called the Blue Stove. If you happen to be at the mall shopping and don't want to wait an hour for the Cheesecake Factory or stacked, I suggest the Blue Stove. It is quiet and intimate with low lighting. The menu offers wonderfully made small portions of... More

What a great surprise in Nordstrom at the Oaks. Five small plates. Scallops and haricot vert on risotto... perfect. Ditto for the creme brulet with lemon curd. The polenta sticks and gnocchi were merely excellent. The crab cakes were "only" good, but the accompanying tarter sauce worth baby frisee was inspired. Service virtually perfect.

I only tried this restaurant for the first time for lunch and feasted on several of the small plates, which were superb. The menu offered a great selection of tempting and tasty dishes and my dining partner and I sampled several of them, along with a glass of wine from a wine list of many choices. Excellent service, pleasant ambience,... More

Blue Stove is cozy, and quiet compared to all the other eateries at the mall. The food is very good and the wine list is great. It is a small plates sharing place. We tend to get the same things over and over, but everything is good. We have our favorites like the chicken tacos, and the crispy cherry beef.... More

Each Nordstrom's has it's own cafe/bistro, but of all the ones we've been to, The Blue Stove at The Oaks has to be our favorite. The staff is very friendly, the tapas plates are great for sharing, and the menu is very diverse. The last visit, there were Korean Short Rib sliders and the Risotto with (can't remember exactly?), both... More

Great food. Ordered Kale and Manchego cheese salad, lemon risotto with scallops. Both plates really good. Decent portion size for the price. Will come again. No restrooms in the restaurant, you will have to use the one in the mall.

The food was fantastic. It's a tapas menu. There were 3 adults eating, and we ordered 5 tapas plates and 2 desserts. Just to let you know, the desserts weren't tapas size, they were huge. The food was really good, but the restaurant was really dark. We all had to pull out our phones, and use the flashlight to see... More

Back on the early department store days, some used to have a soda fountain or a lunch counter. That always seemed so cool to me and was dissappointed that it wasn't still a thing. The. My wife caught wind of an amazing restaurant inside of Nordstrom and I knew we had to try it. It's actually a wine/tapas bar. It... More
