  • Nice, but unspectacular for the price

    We had the $200 Cosmopolitan sushi Platter, which was definitely an attractive, well-presented platter, but did not really impress for the price. I anticipated some unusual selections, but it was simply a fairly standard sushi-sashimi collection, and I've had better for less money. Everything was fresh, and the pieces of fish were reasonably generous, but there was no "wow" for me. I would consider going again and trying a la carte, but the Platter was unimpressive.

    I would have given this restaurant a 5star rating however everything was ridiculously over priced. The quality was great however for what they are charging for a 4 piece roll there should have been gold flakes in it! I realize this is swanky Vegas but for a bill totaling $275 (before tip) for a party of 2 is a bit extreme. We each had 2 drinks, a side salad and shared 3 rolls. I wouldn't go back on price alone, too bad because this place is nice.

    My cousin from out of town invited us here for her daughters 21st birthday dinner. I thought wow Sushi at Cosmo must be amazing! WRONG! The hostesses were wearing jeans, flannel and tennis shoes. Not appropriate attire for the ambiance of this particular restaurant. Throughout out entire dining experience we had about seven different servers come up to our table most who we couldn't hear or understand. They would just smile and bow their heads. Took forever to get drinks. Sushi came out room temperature. Nothing special. Even rolls that were supposed to be spicy were bland. The only thing we liked was the Dynamite. Do not waste your time or your money.

    Even with all the competition in Las Vegas -- the "superbowl of chefs" -- this restaurant stands out again and again. We go there every chance we get and ALWAYS introduce friends from out of town. The menu is beyond creative (you must try the fried chicken and the oxtail fried rice) and the food is healthy and delicious. The waitstaff is efficient, friendly, willing to help navigate the menu (important!), even create custom platters for you.

    The fish quality was good but the chefs in the back area don't know how to prepare the dish. The slices were too wide and should have sliced it thinner. the toro was 15 dollars for one pc and was worth 5 dollars. The lobster roll was like tuna salad. not one chunk of lobster. The grilled octopus was very good but again not served correctly. The staff was very nice. the sake menu was good, probably over priced. The meal for two was 275 dollars. It was 125. I wouldn't go back.

    We walked in and were seated within a minute (which was great). The busboy was quite helpful explaining some menu items and his attitude was upbeat. The waitress unfortunately not so much so, she came by and was overall courteous but never ONCE asked us how our meal was. My husband ordered the staple chicken fried and it was good but not $30 amazing... I had an appetizer called Dynamite which WAS amazing, a perfect mouth watering combination of scallops and wild mushrooms to die for. I also had a tiger roll and honestly was not impressed. The place is a little dark which makes it intimate but the tables are WAY too close together which takes the "intimacy" away... Overall we had a good dinner but i wouldnt go back or recommend it.

    We had made reservations thinking it would be busy but noted a lot of empty tables. Relatively small, quiet restaurant that is quite pricey. While the restaurant was nice, the hosts/waiters/waitresses/staff were all wearing NFL football jerseys (it was a Saturday night for crying out lou). We found that a little odd and detrimental to the ambience. The service was poor for the price, able to place an order almost 20 mins after being seated and drinks served later than that. We had three different rolls, Tiger roll (tasty), crispy spicy tuna with cucumber (average, fresh) and spicy salmon (not on menu, also average). Disappointed overall as had high expectations. Will try other sushi joints instead next time.

    Was not impressed by this sushi restaurant. Very loud, there was yelling every time a new customer walked in. Dark, couldn't see to read menus. The sushi was just okay - the fish was literally a minced paste in each roll. I was expecting evenly cut pieces of salmon and tuna in each roll. Seemed like such a shortcut for a restaurant that was supposed to be 'blue ribbon'.

    Cosmopolitan is one of my favorite hotels in Vegas, so when searching for a sushi restaurant I was pleased to find Blue Ribbon amongst the top rated. Hostess stand always had a smiling face and pleasant conversationalist. We were seated almost immediately despite being full on a Saturday night at prime dinner time. The hot sake was excellent though other cocktail servings were small in quantity for the price. My ratings were based on the sushi as being just OK from the 4 Rolls ordered amongst the table. However, the sea bass and fried chicken were excellent and highly recommended. They brought us 2 brownie deserts unexpectedly in celebration of the birthdays at the table which were out of this world! 3 stars overall.

    Service was terrible, waiter was absolutely clueless as to the menu and any wine/saki choices. Manager stepped in to help and he was clueless also and indifferent to our needs. It's only a matter of time before this place goes out of business when people catch on they no longer have the edge. I used to make it a point to come here every time in LV but now they have lost my trust as I used to come here for any outstanding experience. Food quality was admittedly very good, but there's other choices in LV, especially when your spending $$$$. I will not repeat.

    Attended a seminar at the Cosmopolitan and decided to invite my wife to an infrequent dinner on the Strip for us locals. The staff from the front to back was friendly, attentive and smiled. The food was very good. My wife ordered the Cosmopolitan sushi/sashimi platter which was excellent in diversity and taste. For the price, expected a little more though because "platter" is a bit misleading. I had their famous fried chicken and it was wonderful. The Lychee martini must have also been good since my wife had to have 2. Although we balked at first, the waiter suggested the Ginger bread pudding and we're happy he did. It was great. I mean great! Love the Cosmo too. User friendly. Parking to everything there is only a few steps, not 1/2 mile.

    Blue Ribbon Vegas is actually much fancier than its NYC namesake, but has a very pleasant ambiance and a quiet atmosphere that makes it perfect for a hot date or working business dinner. However, you pay for what you get, so be prepared to spend over $100 per person not including liquor!

    I am a big sushi lover and I have been to a lot of sushi places all over the world-Australia, Singapore, Amsterdam as well as many Japanese restaurants in the US, but I will rate The Blue Ribbon without a doubt at the top- right next to Nobu and Yamazato from Amsterdam. I rate this place very high not only because of the great food, but also for the nice atmosphere and especially for the service which was amazing.

    We visited the last day of Restaurant Week Las Vegas and had never visited Blue Ribbon Sushi. Yes, there was sushi on the menu but so was short ribs AND fried chicken. Say what? Ordering fried chicken at a sushi joint? Yes, DO IT! Pretty awesome. Dessert was tasty and definitely perfect for the 3 course meal. We added the king crab truffled fried rice and it was definitely worth it. The service was wonderful and everyone was attentive, they all worked together to meet all of our needs and extremely friendly, they all seemed like they all enjoyed being there. One gripe: one stall for the restroom? Really? LOL

    When we had dinner at Blue Ribbon, we ordered: Pork gyoza, spicy tuna roll and their signature fried chicken. Best gyoza we have ever had. The sushi was so fresh and well prepared! And their fried chicken is well-known for a reason! It was fantastic! Front of house and servers were all very friendly and helpful. Overall we had a wonderful experience and would love to come back again whenever in Vegas. Highly recommended!

I have been to a ton of sushi joints and I am extremely disappointed by this place. this location derserves a thumbs down.

    I was so excited to try Blue Ribbon in Vegas as I had been missing the one in NYC since I moved. It did NOT disappoint, great food, great service. We sat in the back room and it wasn't as loud, perfect for a Sunday night in Vegas after a long weekend. The fried chicken was better than I remembered.
