Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "Service was first rate, as was the menu and wine list. Food was fresh, seasonal and absolutely delicious! Our server was highly knowledgable and fun! Our one wish was for the portion sizes to be larger."

  • " 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!"

  • "Blue Hill is a must when in New York, the food was creative using the freshest products and sometimes unusual combinations but worked very well. serivice was attentive, but not overbearing and the staff knowledgeable on wine matches. we also liked the small intimate atmosphere."

  • "From the food to the service to the drinks, definitely a night to remember. This is definitely a special occasion restaurant, but you will not be disappointed. The food is truly farm to fork. I loved the added touch of getting housemade sweet vermouth complimentary with dessert."

  • "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."

  • "No mistakes on the Farmer's menu. Each dish was unique, well prepared and presented. Even the cocktails were great. The wine we ordered was fairly marked up."

  • "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."

  • "We love how the wait staff and chef customize the menu for our dietary needs. The Tasting Menu is a perfect way to get the full experience. Each course gets better. Don't hesitate to explain special requests when you make reservations. I would suggest an early dinner because it does get noisy. Ask to make sure your table isn't near a large group. It is the perfect place for a special night."

  • "Outstanding creative fresh food served with impeccable service in a cozy but elegant space. Staff went above and beyond to accommodate our two tweens - making us feel welcome, appreciated and able to fully enjoy a very adult three hour meal. I had the Farmers Feast - you could almost taste the dark rich soil in the asparagus , the briny northern seas in the braised hake served with snow pea puree and the Blue Hill Farm Pig melted in your mouth. My father, who's highest praise is "It's okay" said that "Dinner was excellent." So grateful that you helped give him and my husband a memorable Father's Day!"

  • "A true dining experience. From the moment you walk in the door the excellent service is evident. The staff are professionally trained and play their parts nicely. The food is exquisite. Beautiful presentation and every bite a new and delicious taste experience. The tables along the walls are closely spaced together and it feels as if you are dining with the guests next to you on both sides. You can strike up a conversation or try to remain private. "

  • "The food was good but definitely not worth the 320.00 we spent on just my husband and I. I feel like there are so many other places in the city to have a nice dinner for less. We will not be going back."

  • "This was our 3rd time at Blue Hill. It's a place we'll always go back to when visiting NY from Wisconsin. We love the farm to table creations - always fresh and unique. We sat at the bar as we like to do and Ben, the Bartender was knowledgeable and friendly. He knew just the wine for my meal and made our martinis perfectly. This place is a must!"

  • "My partner and I went for a special occasion. We were treated like special guests from the moment we entered the restaurant. Everyone at all parts of the service were very kind and helpful in making decisions about food. The food was delicious--every dish was beautifully presented, incorporated several tastes and textures, and tasted as fresh as if one were on the farm eating. "

  • "Blue Hill is the best restaurant I've ever been to. I've eaten there multiple times, always for a special occasion. I was dismayed this time that they have changed their menu to two options; four course or six course. It was much better a la carte. The food is still incredible, but would prefer they go back to the old way."

  • "Our dinner was certainly an adventure. Loved the serving pieces and the little tidbits served at the beginning of the meal. Best butter I ever had. The staff very knowledgeable about food, but...I was asked on the phone and again at dinner if there were any food restrictions. I asked for no or limited salt. I happened to order pork as my main dish and it was soooo salty. I would rather have been told that that particular dish was not a good idea to get. Yes I would return and be more cautious perhaps try their winter menu. there is no doubt that this restaurant is well taken care of."
