    Dining at Blue Hill was more than just an elegant dinner, it was a complete experience. My friends and I did the easy drive from NYC and happily arrived at Stone Barns 40 minutes later. The food was exquisite. The staff was knowledgeable and accomodating. The restuarant is stunning and set the tone for a beautiful birthday celebration for myself. I highly reccommend this restaurant.

    who is into food. The location is unbeatable, the food as fresh as humanely possible and the service super professional. Eating here is an adventure as you have no idea what is coming next. Every vegetable presented is miniature concentrated flavor and size. I loved it and yet at the same time was unsettled. There is a lack of warmth in the food and the service. I prefer to know what I'll be eating and for how many courses. I think that through our meal of at least 15 courses, only one time did we have a standard plate and it was square. The service is exceptional yet a different person brings out each course so you never have any conversation with them. Definitely worth trying once.

    The experience was excellent but not worth the money. The chef is extremely creative and talented and the food very good. Some dishes were somewhat salty and the pork course was actually tough which totally surprised me. We had the 10 course grazing menu and ironically that what some of the courses were - grazing on "weeds". The oysters and liver pates were the highlight. The venue is beautiful. The service was excellent. We had received a gift certificate otherwise we would never had dined here given the ridiculous cost and lack of options for dining. I was also surprised we had to pay for coffee after having paid $196 pp for dinner.

    They provided a perfect evening. The food was great the service was special they explained where the food came from and how they prepared it. The best part was that we were invited into the kitchen to have an entree at the Chef's table. We watched out the kitchen and the 30 chefs prepared the food with full explanations. A great treat.

    Eating at Blue Hill is not just a dinner, it is an experience. From the beautiful setting, to the service and of course the amazing food- One always feels like they are the center is attention. Each and every course is unique and it is all linked to the high quality of seasonal ingredients. The only caveat is that there no options but the full blown tasting menu so you are in for the long, and not cheap, ride. I personally loved it, but some of our party did not. Overall, I find Blue Hill at Stone Barns to be the best restaurant in the try state area, if not beyond, with a great concept and even better delivery. You will crave some of those dishes for days after your meal.

    Yes, it's costly. But if you view it as service as choreography, dining as an oasis, overall experience as a transporting journey, with surprises at every turn, you won't dwell on that thought for long. My suggestion: there is no menu - you're asked at the outset what you'd prefer not to have, or what allergies you have so they can prepare accordingly, stop and consider this as well: When you go to a restaurant, you choose what you want from a menu. Here, they've turned that upside down. Be an active chooser: ask for certain things you'd like to have. The one and only shortcoming that I found- I would have liked to have had some poultry, as well as the beef and fish - but I blame myself. I never asked for that, specifically.

    BH@SB was a singularly unique dining experience. Dishes came almost immediately after we were seated with servers that told us unique factoids on the foods we were eating or about their sustainable agricultural practices. Each dish was impressive in that while small, were flavorful and intense. The small plates should not fool you--the sheer amount of plates that came had us full before the second course was done. We were surprised with a invite to the kitchen and were able to watch the chefs work as we ate a few courses inside--they noted my off-hand comment that it was our anniversary! I was so impressed with our host Patrick--he was incredibly affable and knowledgeable. Wine pairing is recommended. Business casual dress was appropriate.

    Rather than echo the oft-repeated sentiments about Bue Hill's delectable cuisine, dazzling presentation or fabulous setting (indoors and out), I want to explain what it was, exactly, about our experience that was so different from meals at other fancy restaurants. My friend and I arrived early to wander the farm (no scheduled tour)and stumbled upon one of the beekeepers, who treated us to an impromptu tour of the hives and a lesson on apiculture. He showed us a secret path that led through the farm and back up to the diningroom. This very personal moment led to another, midway through the meal, when we were escorted to the kitchen to watch master chefs at work. An entirely unexpected invitation, it made us feel very special--and so at home.

    Mere words cannot describe how special a meal is at this restaurant. Without a menu and armed with your food likes in mind, the kitchen assembles a series of dining courses filled with the flavors and character of the ingredients harvested just outside the front door. The staff is beyond knowledgeable and the presentation is more than creative. You will be talking about your meal for days if not weeks to friends, family and co-workers.

    If money is no object than this is the place for you. At a price of about $200 a person this is not for everyone. There is no menu but they do ask is there anything you are allergic to or is there something you will not eat. I feel that even though the courses are small there are too many of them and as a result too much food. During the 3 hour dinner the manager comes to your table and takes you for a walk into the kitchen where there is a table set up for you to have the next course. After finishing that course they take you back to your table for a few more courses.

    Words fail. The moment we entered the dining room with its extravagant wisteria vine frame filled with waterfalls of exquisite orchids, our sense of anticipation reached a summit from which it did not descend until the final gentle swallow of the 2000 Pinot Noir (which no force on earth could have kept me from finishing!) This is, simply, a perfect dining experience. I have been so lucky to have consumed high quality food artistry in many settings. Make your reservation and don't wait for a special occasion. Trust me.

    The farm is beautiful. Fresh veggies and all starters were a delight, but then the evening slowed down in all respects. Much time was spent with empty glasses waiting for whatever was next. Servers need training-- milling around, looking confused, no one seemed to be in charge of our tablle. Descriptions of food and wine were strangely minimal, even when we asked questions. Main courses were unremarkable-- pork under-cooked and tenderloin tough. Four hours and $900 later (for a couple), the servers suddenly seemed eager to clear everything away. No one said good-bye or thank you. For that price, a small goody bag with some honey or jam from the farm would have been nice, with a warm thank you.

    I took my boyfriend to Blue Hill for his birthday, and it was bar far the best dining experience we have ever had. Every bite of food, no matter how small or large, was incredible, and made from the freshest ingredients from the farm. The service was the best we've seen, and our waiter was incredibly knowledgable and extremely personable. We are already looking forward to our next trip there!

I can't wait to go back. The only thing that surprised me during this visit was the staff. Some of the servers and even captains were uninformed and couldn't answer questions about the food or the farm.

    I thought Dan Barber's mission was to educate all of us about organic, sustainable agriculture. I agree with him wholeheartedly. However, his elitist restaurant is available only to the richest people. It is silly in every aspect. I enjoyed myself, but found I was feeling not only too late to the party, but way over charged for it. There must be a better way to do this. Alice Waters and Dan Barber need to get back to basics and not only educate the public about good food, but feed them in their restaurants at prices that allow more people to enjoy the experience.

    My girlfriend and I were both excited and skeptical about going to Blue Hill for dinner. It's far out of our price range. As entry-level college administrators, we were coaxed with a gift certificate. We expected the experience to be enjoyable, but were skeptical that the food could be appropriately valued at $200 per person (before wine). We were blown away. The 15 (or more?) courses were incredible, the staff accommodated our dietary needs into the full experience and were tremendously hospitable, and we left feeling like we had experienced Barber's conceptual second and third plates. The place has an Utopian-farm feel to it - not because it's trying to reproduce the feeling of a sustainable food system, but because it's inventing it.

    The Blue Hill is exceptional. The father of farm-to-table, it has raised it to the highest level. There is little to compare it to as it is in a class by itself. The setting is glorious, the food an once in-a-life-time experience and the service beyond impeccable. For those with a serous interest in exceptional food or the seriously curious this is a must.

However, if you can suck it up for a special occasion, you definitely get your money's worth. Also, this place is for the open-minded eater. If you're not you will probably be disappointed.

The food was exquisitely prepared and a real delight to the tastebuds. Be prepared to stay a long time - about 3 hours - the food just kept coming and the educational information on the farm was wonderful. Favorite plates were the pig liver with chocolate, poussin with berries and pea mini burgers! Presentation and service was top notch. Wish you could dine like this all the time :-)

    Blue Hill is one of the best restaurants I have ever eaten at. The whole meal is a culinary experience that everyone needs to try at least once in their lives. Unfortunately, after going once, you will want to go again and again. I have been to Blue Hill eight times so far and each time the experience has been on par with 3 star michelin restaurants. The bill will be high, but the experience is worth it.

    Our last dinner took almost 4 hours. They did not serve any food for over 20 minutes, even though most diners had no cocktail. Then there was a long wait between each of 10 courses. I would have ordered fewer but you can't; they only offer a 10-course menu, so that meant over 3 hours of just sitting, not eating. Not only is there no choice on how many courses you get, there is no choice of what any course will be. It's a totalitarian ethos, the diner's wishes are meaningless. And the wine ordering is bizarre; somm only asks basic vague questions. But what do the answers even matter if you don't know what the wine is served with? They need to speed it up!

    We received a gift certificate for our wedding. It was truly an amazing experience. We are pretty laid back and not into stuffy fine dining (we opt for beer over wine and enjoy a laid back atmosphere). We felt taken care of and did not feel out of place. The service staff was very knowledgable and friendly. Since I am in the food world, I really appreciate and respect their on farm restaurant experience. We toured the grounds before our meal and their system of agriculture is truly transparent. A great way for people to learn where their food really comes form. The least pretentious fine dining experience I've had. Only a special occasion visit for us, but would highly recommend. Wish I could afford to dine there more often!
