Diner Reviews
  • "Enjoyed an amazing meas for our first wedding anniversary here last week. Enjoyed a very exciting Chefs tasting menu and asked for wine pairing for the meal and everything was perfect and inventive. Staff were great, attentive and social. Great place, great food, will definitely be back when we are next in NYC."

  • "Everything about Blue Hill was excellent (service and presentation), except being seated in " the garden." It was like sitting in an aquarium. Too close to the next table to converse without them hearing every word. Felt like we were sitting in a morgue it was so quiet. I'm sure the main dining room is a much more "active" place to be."

  • "I am an old time client of Blue Hill, but I found the move to only two menus, the feast which is a degustation menu and the prix-fix was not a fortunate one. The service is still very good, the quality of the food too, but something was lost that was really outstanding when eliminating the a-la-carte menu. I will probably visit less often when I come every year to NYC."

  • "This was my second time dining at Blue Hill. We enjoyed the tasting menu and there were some outstanding dishes - the curried zucchini with almonds was delicious as was the strip loin and flat iron steak combo. Although the servings seemed small, by the end of the evening, we felt very satisfied. We were provided with 3 different "amuse bouche" which was a nice way to start the meal. Our server was really great and took time to explain the restaurant's culinary mission. Table service was outstanding. One mishap; I spilled my dessert glass of port and some of it splashed onto the table cloth of the empty table beside us. The bar manager (I think) came over to clear the empty table and didn't try to hide her noticeable annoyance."

  • "While once great, there are now many better places to go. The food was good but not great. Service was underwhelming. The credit card machine broke and instead of addressing this, the staff simply slowed down the service. When we asked for the check after 15 minutes post dessert, we got a blank stare and we're notified it would probably be another ten minutes. No apology. No visit from the manager. No comped drink or dessert. Ten minutes we paid cash and left. After"

  • "Dinner was extravagantly delicious from first niblet through 2nd dessert. Portions were perfect, though by the end (a spectacular pork dish) we were beyond sated. I'd love it if a la carte was also an option, as every trip that is a degustation menu seems like an expedition to me in my old age that I really don't have the stamina for. Service, though was perfect, and it would be hard to imagine a much better night out."

  • "The ambience was great as was the server. The first 2 courses and bread were wonderful, as was dessert However, I had heard the food was special. The main courses were not. I had a pork dish that was very salty. That seemed a cheap way to get flavor and it was really too salty. I tried my daughters beef and it too was salty. My sister had the vegetarian dish , a steak eggplant. The thickness and meatiness of it was wonderful but it too was salty . I did not think the prices that bad for a restaurant of this reputation. But the main course did not meet up to its reputation. The ambience lent itself to my having a wonderful time with my daughter and sister. I would not return here for a special event or with my wife for a special dinner"

  • "The experience of dining at Blue Hill is one that will be remembered. From the softly lit room that welcomes you to the impeccable service provided by the staff you will be pampered the entire length of your visit. The kitchen will delight you with small portions of artfully crafted foods. We would recommend a reservation for any special occasion or just to say you have dined at one of the best."

  • "The food is great. It is always great. I liked everything that we ordered (which is unusual). Since the restaurant is small and busy, there seems to be a lot of staff clumping near the bar. To be honest, the service was a little slow. In particular, between our first and main, there was a very long wait. It was long enough that I thought they may have forgotten to put the order in for the main. In the end, the chicken and pig dishes arrived and they both were great. We will definitely be back for more."

  • "When I went last time two years ago all the foods were either salty or had a strong flavor. But thankfully the chef changed and everything was great. The best impression of the food for this restaurant was when I first went here back in 2009. This time I had the Hake and it was perfectly made. I also had duck which was a bit chewy. My concern was the "three" desserts at the end where we were first served yoghurt with blueberry sauce, second the flourless chocolate cake, and then third was the madeline. Although the portions are small I did not need three desserts at the end."

  • " There's nothing like Blue Hill if you want to remember the evening. We go to plenty of restaurants with good food but this restaurant is unique. Until now, we've only been to Blue Hill at Stone Barns, but I think we will book our next reservation at the Village locale."

  • "Tried farmers feast menu. Started from peas and tomatoes, it was well presented to indicate an atomosphere of rural organic farm, but it was interestingly awkward for the restaurant's upscale ambience. Roasted beans with herbs were a very good idea to enjoy those without BBQing. Porgy with cucumber bisque tasted wonderfully as well as following lobster. Enjoyed Berkshire pork with egg plant and sesame seeds. Fortunately got an opportunity to try a bottle of 2009 Nine Barrels Reserve Merlot from Shinn Estate Vineyards, Long Island. The deep fruit notes went well with especially the pork dish. Dessert was chocolate cake with black cherries. Overall, the dishes taste great, but ordinary and less than expectation. Portions were too small."

  • "I go to a lot of five-star restaurants. The meals are often fine but not up to the hype. Blue Hill is one of a handful that not only live up to the hype, they exceed it. The food was spectacular and the service was terrific. Sometimes the season approach leads to a poor progression of courses that start to taste the same do to the overuse of an abundant ingredient. That was not the case here. Each course was distinct and flavorful. The overall atmosphere is sophisticated while still being comfortable and not pretentious. All-in-all a terrific experience. I would go back in a heartbeat, and recommend it to anyone who can get reservations."

  • "The combination of excellence with relaxed but nice attire for guests makes for a great experience. We had dinner at 10 pm following the first set at the Village Vanguard. The downstairs softly lit room is always full but not overly loud which also makes for a great experience. We opted for the $85 4-course menu. Our vegetarian guest was thrilled with her selections. We all liked the samplings of raw vegetables. The bread and seed encrusted butter were memorable. In fact, everything was memorable. Appetizer. second course and dessert portions lean toward the small size which is wise when the entree is a variation on a theme of pork, duck or fish. Wine list is strong with good selections about $100. Red wine by the glass was weak."

  • "We loved the dining experience. The staff was incredible. The food was divine and the presentation top notch. We even loved the soap and lotion in the bathroom that is made on the farm and purchased that as well! I highly suggest going!"

  • "Awesome service and overall very good experience. The only drawback was the duck was quite rare (raw almost - not medium rare as advertised) and the scallops were not quite cooked through. I expected better execution from an establishment with such a good reputation."

  • "If I could give Blue Hill a sixth star I would! To date the absolute best restaurant experience we've ever had! The guys opted for the 6 course dinner and the gals the 4 course. Everyone loved everything that was served - which is unusual. Our Manhattan-ite friends dined here a few times before and, at the time, didn't think it could be any better. To their surprise Blue Hill exceeded their already fond memories of meals past. The Garden Room was peaceful and the perfect setting for catching up with family and good friends. Fresh, artisanal, innovative, and like nothing else offered anywhere. A truly special experience."

  • "I took my husband to Blue Hill for his birthday and it was absolutely perfect. We both chose the Farmer's Feast, and enjoyed every moment of it. From the bundled asparagus, to the scallops, pork, and madeleines with rhubarb jam it was spectacular. The service was top notch without being stuffy and the room was quiet but did not make you feel uncomfortable speaking. We are very much looking forward to going back, and trying Blue Hill at Stone Barns."
