    Overpriced, unsophisticated service, over pouring the wine, and a paper tablecloth. While the individual dishes were quite tasty the whole experience seemed somehow disconnected. The delivery of the course did not have the smooth rhythm that is common in most high end restaurants.

    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.

    Blue Hill accomplishes what many restaurants fail to -- it's very very good without being pretentious. The food is excellent, carefully presented by knowledgeable wait staff at ease with the menu. The room is chic and grown up without sacrificing warmth. it's a fabulous restaurant that achieves a lot without seeming to try too hard. We love it, and go back regularly.

    You can tell a lot by the small things an owner of a restaurant does. The butter is the best I've ever tasted. Sourced from his farm and hand churned--lots of work for something blue hill gives away for free. We are vegetarians so this is very veggie friendly. Dan Barber is the chef and advocates the "third plate" where meat is secondary and the portion should be small. He is changing the way america eats--for the better!

    I came here for dinner after hearing very good things about the restaurant. In terms of the space, I thought it felt a bit cramped. The restaurant isn't very big, and ceilings are quite low too, so with the tables placed so closely together, it felt a bit stuffy. The pre-appetizers of fresh vegetables were very good, I especially liked the radishes. We had farmer's feast, and although the food was good, I found everything a bit too salty.

    This was our third visit to Blue Hill in four years. We do not live in the US but make a point of dining here whenever we come to NYC and have never been disappointed. If you want to eat great food, be looked after by the wait staff and you want to hear your dining companion, Blue Hill is a real treat.

    From our initial greeting we knew we were in expert hands. The food was perfection. One of our party is gluten free and this was handled with great care. Blue Hill even has its own gluten free bread which was very much appreciated. It was delicious. The service was excellent throughout. Every single staff member had the answers to our many questions and were very personable. We asked for our meal to be paired with wines which was done with great care and thoughtfulness. All were perfect pairings.

    We were visiting New York City and had heard about The Blue Hill Restaurant from a story on The ABC Morning Show. I like the concept of Farm to Fork dining, so we were anxious to try it out. It is a very hard-to-find place that does not have a sign out front just the address "75" on the canopy. I do not consider it "tourist friendly" because it is so difficult to find. As far as the food was concerned (we got the Farmhouse Feast) served in several tiny, tiny courses. The food was delicious but it was no "feast". Our bill came to just under $250.00 that included two drinks, tax, and tip. The service was outstanding. I would not recommend this restaurant because it was very pricey for the size of the portions.

    Had dinner here and it was amazing! The food was well thought out and perfectly executed. Everything was a hit. Even the seemingly cliche melon and cured meat was exciting in its balance of sweet, salty, bitter, and floral. The service was just as thoughtful and warm as the food. Always a smile and something you wanted yet never had to ask for.
