Food is excellent but It is not a quiet place due to the small size. And also not much space between tables or anywhere to wait whilst your table is being prepared

-Food was VERY good but not outstanding like I was expecting. We even saw a cook with grocery bags came in the restaurant during our meal... strange when you preach that your ingredients come from nearby farms.

-Exceptional service, one of the best.

-Little bit disapointed by the "basement" location and the overall outdated feel of the interior.

This is by far the best restaurant that we have been to in North America. We are so lucky that it is practically next door.

We had just gotten engaged the night before and celebrated with Bruce Springsteen in Broadway, but wanted to also celebrate with an amazing dining experience and Blue Hill exceeded all expectations on every measure. Thanks!

I have been wanting to go to Blue Hill for several years, and my dream finally came true. This place made me fall in love with food again. Every single course was so absolutely out of this world, I cant and wont bother to describe the flavors. The staff was impeccable, as was their service. I would come back here in a heartbeat. Blue Hill exceeded my expectations as a food enthusiast.

My second time at Blue Hill and it was another incredible experience. They are able to take fairly simple ingredients and transform them into something special. I could make an entire meal from just the bread. It is that good. Service is spectacular. Highly recommend.

This is my second time here and I was how impressed how unique this visit was. The restaurant proved to be able to reinvent since my original experience (which was also amazing!). Everything was outstanding. The food was inventive. The staff are the best part of the experience by creating memories that I’ll remember for a long time!

We will likely not be returning -- the food was overly salty, cold in some cases, and to the point where I couldn't finish a couple of courses. The service was okay, not great. We've been before, and rated it as one of the best meals we've ever had. I'm not sure what happened, but was disappointing.

My husband and I took my mother-in-law, who was visiting from out of town, for dinner on Saturday. The service was excellent and the food was even better! They were very accommodating with all our dietary restrictions, and the cocktails (& mocktails) were yummy! Highly recommend if you're looking for a special night out!

It was my wife’s birthday. The staff made a birthday card a cake for her, which was a nice surprise. We had the extended feast which took about 3.5 hours. The food was very good; the vegetables were succulent and refreshing even with minimal preparations. The bread and butter was extraordinary; the dish with offal and pig ears was very flavorful; but the most memorable dish was the duck. It was undoubtedly the star of the night, so juicy and tender. The desserts were excellent as well, but towards the end we were so tired we did not enjoy it as much. Overall an eye opening experience of the farm to table concept.

This restaurant is ranked one of the top 50 in the world, and deservedly. Our meal was perfect, the service and ambiance was perfect, we’ll definitely be back. Watching Chefs Table online I was shocked at Chef Dan Barber’s horrible treatment of his staff. I hope that he’s sought out some sort of treatment for his mean spirited and demeaning personality, he’s obviously troubled. The fact that he allowed himself to be seen without editing seems to me that he either doesn’t care, or that he needed it to be recorded as a means of self reflection. He’s clearly a genius, he just needs to know that in his world, he cannot be a genius without amazing people supporting him. Without them he’d be nothing.

One of the most dependable restaurants we’ve ever had the pleasure of visiting. Once again, the attentive and knowledgeable but not hovering staff goes the extra mile to insure a great experience. This small (about 50 seats) space is very attractive and quiet. The wine selections are far more interesting than usual and there are many unusual choices to go with the delicious food. Every dish here comes across as though the kitchen had stepped out back to forage for the ingredients. An exceptional evening.

While the place lived upto it’s reputation with the food and service, the ambiance left a lot to be desired. We were made to walk through the main dining room through a hallway to the garden section.
The outdoor place was completely disconnected from the main restaurant, had no life, minimal number of tables. It made us feel we are being punished for some unknown reason.
For this reputed a place, they should mention about the sitting arrangement so as not to lead to dissatisfaction.

Incredible experience, highly recommend sitting at the bar - Oliver is a spectacular bartender, and pairs whiskey and mixed drinks perfectly. The food is all you expect going to Blue Hill, and so much more. You are left finding yourself at a loss for words, grasping at a desire for eloquence that can match the exquisiteness of the food. You will have combinations you've never had before, vegetables that make you consider vegetarianism, and then meat so well raised and cooked that you remember why you could never abandon it in the first place. The timing of the dishes was perfect, and the service is on point - not too pretentious, but perfectly descriptive, approachable, and timely. Presentation is artful, without being more about the art than the food. Go, it is more than worth whatever price tag you have.

Having been to Blue Hill at Stone Barns, our expectations were high. Unfortunately the food, while interesting, did not match those expectations or the prices. Salt seemed to be the predominant taste sensation. My chicken was tough and tasteless. My companions had somewhat better experiences but were also largely unimpressed.

This is an expensive restaurant. The room is beautiful, the service is excellent, and the food is outstanding, even if the menu is somewhat (intentionally) limited. (Given the steep price and the lack of options, we were fortunate that we liked the choices offered the night we went. I imagine it would be a difficult dining experience if someone did not like the options that night.) The primary disappointment with our experience was actually with the other diners, in particular their dress and conduct. For a restaurant of this caliber, and with this price tag, I think a dress code, albeit a liberal one, is appropriate. I don't think patrons should wear shorts, sneakers, t-shirts, etc. to a restaurant that costs this much. That may be a personal pet peeve, but I think other diners might be surprised that the restaurant doesn't require at least a minimum amount of appropriate dress.

There are two restaurants that people in the neighborhood go to consistently because they never disappoint: I Sodi and Blue Hill. There is a reason why they are still going after all this time...

We’ve eaten at Blue Hill before and this was the first time we came away disappointed. Had this been our first experience I don’t know that we’d come back. The biggest problem is that for a small tasting menu we needed to wait far too long between courses, up to 30 minutes. That amplified our focus on other problems: theAC was freezing on a cold night. The staff didn’t treat us very well. Once they saw we weren’t having the best experience they wrote us off rather than trying to understand why. This is an expensive meal. We shouldn’t be treated that way. We’re repeat customers and now I’ll think twice before booking again.
