    We received a gift certificate to Blue Hill for my husband's 50th birthday and used it for our anniversary celebration dinner. Wow - what a treat! The freshness and delicate preparation of the vegetables was quite impressive & each course was just enough to relish yet leave you wanting more. The service was friendly and impeccable, the decor and mood of the restaurant was elegant yet casual...not too stuffy fortunately otherwise hubby would've hated it. We thoroughly enjoyed every moment of our almost 3 hour meal...would love to come back again but not sure we can afford it any time soon :(

    Initially we were seated in between two other couples at a fairly tight and less intimate table. Within minutes of being seated 2 staffpersons came to our table asking if we would like to move to a more intimate table in a corner. Within seconds we were comfortably seated at our new table. I don't even know where to begin to describe the food, such care was taken with each and every item, to the way in which it was presented at the table, to the plate it was served on and to the utensil provided. Even the butter for the bread was uniquely prepared. Because we don't live in NY this may have been a once in a lifetime experience to so enjoy ALL aspects of a dining experience. I can't decide if the food or service delighted me more, they both exceeded expectations. When the bill came we didn't even flinch from the extraordinary price of our meal, it was that worth it in every way.

    We had such a great time at Blue Hill and found the food even better here than at a recent visit to Blue Hill Stone Barns (which was also wonderful). Our server Alexandra was the best, guiding our choices, and every course was spectacular. My only complaint would be I wish there was a chocolate option for dessert. But that is a minor quibble.

    I have eaten at Blue Hill Stone Barns (best and most enjoyable meals of my life) and have heard repeatedly that the Greenwich Village Blue Hill is a significant step down. Untrue! Delicious food, extremely attentive and warm service, and knowledgeable staff. Just as it is at the other Blue Hill, the night was magical. The only sad parts were that the meal did end and I reached a point of being full. I wanted to stay forever and eat forever.

    While my wife and I had an incredibly enjoyable evening, the food did not meet our expectation primarily because everyone had been so praiseworthy. Our waitress was phenomenal as was the remainder of the service, the wine was excellent, and everyone could not have been nicer. The dessert was particularly disappointing for such a nice restaurant.

    Everything about Blue Hill was outstanding! The food was truly remarkable. The staff were all personable and went out of their way to explain every step which had been taken to prepare the food. We own a small organic vegetable farm on Cape Cod and supply several restaurants, so we were particularly interested and appreciative of the origin, the care and effort that went into the preparation of each course. We will definitely be returning here.Thank you for a most memorable evening!

    I was treated to one of the best meals in a very long time at Blue Hill NYC in their quiet, intimate dining room. We had the 4-course prix fixe dinner -- each bite was a revelation. The ingredients were combined with thought and creativity, with flavors and textures carefully chosen to complement each other. The presentation of each course was a visual expression of the flavors it contained. Altogether a wonderful aesthetic experience.

    Yes, the food is generally wonderful. Only one dish didn't meet expectations, and the gratis fruit at the end was not good at all. A more affordable wine list would have been nice. At the price, this isn't a restaurant I'd go back to often.

    A feast for the senses from the moment you walk in - a small space is at once cozy without feeling crowded, soft lighting warms the exposed brick and staff are welcoming. Then comes the feast! You will pause with every mouthful - from the delicately pickled radish, the smoked tomato soup, breast of duck with plums and a palate cleanser of fresh blueberries and lime ice. All perfectly matched with wines. An evening to remember!

    The menu offers two options. A prix fixe for 4 courses or a prix fixe for 6 courses. The waitress overheard my husband and I discussing the menu and how the four courses option looked better but we really wanted to have the six courses. On her own initiative, she asked the chef and they customized the meal for us! She even eliminated tomatoes for me although I told her it wasn't necessary. (They give me esophagitis.) The food was above and beyond. Sublime! A gourmand treat! However, what made the evening so much more pleasurable was our very happy, bubbly, and so accommodating waitress.
