We had a wonderful time at Blue Hill! The service was impeccable! A few dishes weren't to our taste, but that's (of course) more about us than the restaurant itself. We hope to come back in the future!

They were amazing. We told them it was our anniversary and they made the night very special with small tokens of celebration. Truly appreciated it. The staff is wonderful! Than you for a wonderful and memorable night.

My wife and I fully enjoyed a meal that was like nothing we have ever had before. The staff was fantastic Grace the Maître D' was welcoming and a pleasure to talk to. I highly recommend this experience to anyone who loves food.

Being familiar with Dan Barber’s work I had high expectations. The food was excellent, the seasoning in particular was remarkable, and the staff’s knowledge of each dish made the experience even better. Can’t wait to go again.

No privacy. Inches between tables. Portions were small, and the wait time between courses was absurd. 3.5 + hr dinner.

Blue Hill was super accommodating and the food was as expected with their reputation : spectacular! The staff took the chance to get to know us and our likes and dislikes and catered the experience very well. Can’t wait to go back or venture out to Stone Barns

Blue Hill delivers once again! I love all the stories behind each dish, and the service staff are top notch -- all so knowledgable, personable, and welcoming. I am going to have to make the pilgrimage to Stone Barns one of these years!

This is our Go To Restaurant for reliably good, absolutely delicious food in a highly civilized, well trained setting. Winter is a tough act when so little is growing. So the menu had a bit less wow on 1 or 2 of the offerings. We were 4 and this time, ordered the slightly larger menu (Tasting menu of at least 5 or 6 items). Usually we order from the 3 plate selection. And i must say, the larger menu has become too much food for us. The place was full early on a Wed eve... and not many tables turn so it is clear that Blue Hill continues to be special and especially good.

Perfect dîner / choice,
Inventive and original yet really good and enjoyable.
You discover flavours, vegetables, you have never heard before (only once).
And above all service is top.
I liked the ny wine.

We had a very high expectation (since we had been before to Blue Hill at Stone Barns) and it came out below. Service is good, but the food is miles away from the "cousin" restaurant outside NYC.

I might have had unrealistic expectations... but given its Michelin star and reputation, i expected an unforgettable meal. Service was impeccable and the ambiance was perfect. The food was ordinary and did not stand out. We opted for the 4 course menu, even though we planned to select the 6 course. The Meal was unremarkable and forgettable. The wine selection, while limited was quite good.

AMAZING experience. Got married at Stone Barns and have gone back on multiple anniversaries. But have never been to Blue Hill in Manhattan. So glad we did I! Started with a smooth and delicious bourbon batch cocktail and then 6 delicious courses. Highlights were the carrot steak with short rib and the surprisingly tasty barley dessert.

We had a wonderful time on Monday night at Blue Hill. The staff could not have been more attentive and kind. We were celebrating our daughter's birthday and they added some lovely touches for us. The food was fabulous and so different. We had so many different things and everything was just delicious. We will return and can recommend Blue Hill enthusiastically.

The food itself was mediocre and lacking inventiveness.

Food supplies of the restaurant were being delivered into the dining room during restaurant hours. This meant the small dining room area of Blue HIll's door had to be opened and closed several times while the food supplies was being carried in alongside the diners.

I was disappointed by the meal because for a michelin star restaurant, the flavors were quite bland and empty. None of the dishes surprised me regarding texture, flavor, or a unique blend of ingredients. Dish after dish, I was waiting for something that would excite my taste buds, but I was disappointed every time. Even the cocktail (I had the Blue Hill Punch) was neither special nor particularly well mixed. At the end, I could only say the beer ice cream was the best of the worst dishes. The Montauk Fluke was not bad either, but once again, nothing that I would pay $100 per person to have. Overall, the meal was a let down. The service and ambiance was fine. If it weren't for the food, it would be a great place to celebrate a special occasion or just have a nice date.

The food here was amazing. Every course was incredible and well thought out! Our server was diligent. The only thing that took away from 5 stars was the fact that we sat at a table where the couple next to us knew one of the employees. And that employee kept coming to their table and lingering for 10- 15 minutes here and there. It took away from our romantic experience because they were loud talking about Star Wars and going out to the bars.

There is nothing like it, the raw vegetables alone are worth experiencing. We waited without eating all day until our dinner seating. We left so full and satisfied, unlike many tasting menus I’ve experienced. Chef Barber has created tastes and flavors not by altering the sauces and spices and garnishes, but by offering a pure unique whole food underneath. You’ve gotta taste it to believe it.
