    Suckling pig is incredible. They're also known for their apple pie and tea selection, be sure to get both to finish off the meal.

    Great food & service - acoustics in room make it quite loud but overall lived up to it's reputation!

    We gravitate to this high-toned farm-to-table destination whenever we’re in the mood for brunch and whenever we’re trying to satisfy a group of disparate personalities. Service is attentive & polished

    Bitches say B+! While Blue Duck’s design, service and quality of cuisine are impressive The fluffy pancake concoction saved the day, but the rest of the food was blasé.

    The bone marrow with uni is the saltiest, yummiest thing ever. Definitely the standout. Rabbit rilette too. Check out the tea lounge next door.

    Disappointed. Main courses -nothing interesting. Just a burger, but for 22$, spicy pepper is unnecessary. Duck confit was quite tough. Hot chocolate was a cacao with too sweet cheap taste.
