I love tapas and wanted to do some shopping for my birthday. A friend suggested Blue Stove. The atmosphere was cozy and intimate. Our server was great. She gave us wonderful food and wine suggestions. The food was EXCELLENT and the prices were reasonable. I thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant and will be back!

I think I need to give this place another chance. I was not to crazy with my initial visit. Perhaps it was not a normal meal time, after lunch but close to dinner. It was very slow, no ambiance.

OK so it is in Nordstrom's you might expect an updated Schrafts, but no, it has small plates done very well. This time scallops with risotto, tempura shrimp, salisfy and mushrooms, sweet potato fries (among the best I have ever had), and great coffee too. Good service a nice wine list, serves dinner too.

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 prepared foods were... 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
