    Food was good, as was the ambience. Service unfortunately made us feel unwanted. Would still try it again. Perhaps our server had an off night.

    The lemon squash soup was excellent. The steak was tender and cooked exactly as we asked. The server was there without being intrusive. A very good experience.

    On a Thursday evening, Blue Hill Tavern presented itself as a quiet, well laid out bar/restaurant, with great food and service. It did not disappoint...Of all things, parking was ample and close, and it only got better from there. Food was tasty and well priced, and the drinks were perfect. I wold return and stay a little long next time....

    Always a favorite go to. Unfortunately , the menu changed and the new one was not up on the website. While I all for keeping things new, some of my favorites had been replaced with items that didn't interest me. I probably would not have gone if I was able to view the menu prior . On the plus side, the fried pickles were the best I've ever had !

    It had been some time since I'd visited Blue Hill but a recent move into the neighborhood and a Groupon prompted me to give it another visit. Besides being within walking distance of my house, I found the food excellent for the price. The portions were a decent size and everything was steaming hot and freshly prepared. I had the roasted chicken which came with a huge side of macaroni and cheese. I'd hope to save room for the excellent desserts but I was too full from dinner. Perhaps another night I'll have to visit just for drinks and dessert!

    This is my second time dining at this restaurant. The first time I had the surf and turf (fantastic). This time I had the salmon, it was not cooked through so well (mushy inside). My boyfriend had the strip and it was perfect. Would recommend going for steak rather than seafood here.

    We were there the night of the great fire works to commie rate the battle of Baltimore during the war of 1812. The folks at blue hill were cognizant of the timing and made it very easy to enjoy a great dinner and get out in time to see the fire works. Food was very good, a very interesting menu!

    The food was wonderful. The house salad and the branzino were really, really tasty. I loved the shredded salad that allowed all the flavors to combine in each bite. The presentation of the branzino was amazing and the garlicky butter on top was a perfect complement. I would have rated the food a 5 out of 5. And the beer list was super. (Resurrection on tap!) But the meal ended with a thud because of tepid coffee (both the caf and the decaf). When we complained to our server, he happily picked up our mugs to place them in the microwave (!). (We agreed to because it was better than nothing!) And the coffee, served in very small glass mugs (6 ounces?) was not refilled. I expect a great cup of hot coffee to top off a lovely meal.

    I went here with my boyfriend to treat him for his birthday. It's definitely on the pricier side so this place is good for a special occasion. The waiter was very polite and the food was delicious. They even gave us dessert on the house with a candle in it which I thought was very nice. I enjoyed the experience

    We ate here when the restaurant first opened several years ago and were a bit disappointed. Therefore we have stayed away until recently when we decided to give it another try. We are so glad we did! This time the food was outstanding and the service was perfect. We were greeted by a friendly hostess who allowed us to take a peak at the outdoor rooftop lounge even though they had a private party expected shortly after. We were then served by a very knowledgeable waiter who gave his recommendations which were spot on. The salmon was excellent, as were the ceasar and house chopped salads. The bar has a great waterfall backdrop which we didn't even see the first time we visited because it was so crowded. We can't wait to go back!

    Everything about this restaurant was outstanding! We showed up with a party of 6 after making a reservation for five. They accommodated us with minimal wait. Alex was attentive, but not overly so. We very much enjoyed the view overlooking Brewer's Hill. Though we dined on the upstairs patio, we will return to try out the romantic indoor restaurant and bar. Our party dined on burgers, surf & turf, pork tenderloin, salmon, and scallops. Everyone enjoyed their meals immensely. My crab cake was probably less than done, but I continued eating it without any issues.

    Another fantastic experience at BHT. My mother ordered the surf and turf. Her filet was cooked exactly as ordered and she enjoyed the crab cake and her side order as well. My wife had the Mako Shark special and she cleaned the plate. I had the pork tenderloin and it was also very good. Service was very good as always. We absolutely love BHT and would never hesitate to return. This restaurant is great for special occasions as well as just an evening out. One thing that would bring this restaurant up a notch is they would institute some kind of dress code. This is too nice of a place for the types of dress they allow people to wear.

    We had a Groupon for Blue Hill and tried it out on a Friday night. I was surprised that they weren't that busy! The ambiance was a little strange, we didn't really know what the appropriate dress code was (my date felt out of place because he was wearing shorts). We could have called and I asked I suppose, but we didn't so that's on us. Despite this, the dining room is beautifully decorated. I wish we could have seen the upstairs patio as well. We both order mojitos, which were fabulous! To eat, he had the pork chop and I had the New York strip - both were nice dishes, but the pork was a little underwhelming. My date was quite jealous of my steak. Our server was super nice and made great recommendations. Would definitely go back.

    This was mine and my husbands first time coming to Blue Hill and I have to say that we left a little disappointed. The food was pretty tasty but the service was sub-par. Our server wasn't overly friendly and he actually forgot our appetizer completely. The atmosphere is very nice and I would still recommend the restaurant but they definitely have room for improvement.

    Overall, the restaurant was nice. The atmosphere was really interesting. We didn't plan to be in the area but finding Blue Hill Tavern was worth the search. The food was ok. I got the shrimp and grits. My wife ordered the salmon. Both dishes were just ok. The grits were not to my liking (shrimp was good). The salmon was good but the rest of the food on the plate were not. Overall the restaurant had a good feel to it. We'd go back but it'd be option C.

    Went here on Sunday for early dinner. Great location with free valet and plenty of parking. The inside decor is very nice and the outdoor tables on the terrace were nice and romantic. I had bronzini and it was really good. Would definitely go back. The bar was very nice as as well.I would love to come here at night and see the view from the terrace. All the food and drinks were great.

    We came here to dine before seeing Heart at Pier Six. It just so happened to be Restaurant Week and with a lot of restaurants that spells disaster (slow service, jammed, rushed, etc) but not so here. Three of us chose the Restaurant Week menu items and each of us had something different. Every item was outstanding. Only disappointment was that we weren't able to snag a "rooftop" table again but other than that, it was perfect.

    We went to the Blue Hill Tavern based upon their restaurant week menu and were pleasantly surprised. Located inside what was once probably two row homes the interior is modern with interesting dining spaces. I had the red trout entree from their selections for that week. It, along with the sides were perfectly cooked. Our server, Nick, was attentive at just the right level. We will definitely head back another time to try other items on the regular menu.

    Food was good, not outstanding (except the dessert, which certainly was!!!). Outside, upstairs seating was amazing!!!! The server, however, was not able to give recommendations; she was nice enough, but just said "everything is good." Places certainly do some things better than others, and when I go out for a nice dinner, I like to have a server who is familiar with the menu enough to be able to comment on it.

    Menu is interesting and most of the food we ordered-branzino, wild boar pasta was good though mashed potatoes were too salty to eat but mac and cheese made up for it. Unfortunately, the service was horrendous. Inapt and inattentive-- a terrible combination that makes the thought of returning there doubtful.
