The food was excellent and the presentation was done with care. We had the Farmer's Feast with the wine pairing. The servers were very polite and friendly. It would have been nice to feel less rushed by the pace of the dishes being served. The tables are a bit too close for my taste, so it doesn't allow much privacy.

We had a great start, the presentation of the menu was very good. Our server was very nice, knowledgeable and had a friendly and professional attitude. Everything was very good until we received our mains, we had the 3 different options on the 95$ tasting and all three mains disappointed. Dessert was very good!

Food is OK but not extraordinary.
Tables are to close each other and the room look crowded.
The service is super slow: we dwelled in the restaurant for 2hr and 15 mins, the first course arrived after 30mins seated. 10 mins of wait between every course. After a while my only wish was to get out of there.

Such a unique dining experience, enjoyed and savored every bite. You can certainly taste the difference from the fresh farm food. So enjoyable to take the time to taste each flavor in every dish! Service was excellent and attentive, can’t wait to return.

Fascinating dining experience. Had seen the Chef’s Table re Dan Barber and wanted to see for ourselves. We have lived in Italy and Aspen and done business in and around NYC for years, but not for several years in the recent past. Farm to restaurant sounds great, except it is obscured when you cannot identify what you have just eaten. I think the quality and taste of the food itself is hidden and overshadowed by the artfulness of the presentation. Like most modern, hip, trendy chefs, Barber has created an overproduced dining experience. And the cost of the wine is off the charts and not compelling. The $80 bottle of nebbiolo we had was thin and tannic. Of course it was about the least expensive wine on the menu.

The food at Blue Hill was amazing - the staff were very knowledgeable about what was being served as well as the farm where some of the food has origins. The dishes used ingredients I would never think of including (oat ice cream) - I was there with my girlfriend and we both had the extended chef's menu. I would highly recommend you check out Blue Hill the next time you are in New York.

I booked Blue Hill for my parents anniversary. From the beginning, the team was kind and helpful deciding what gift certificate was the best fit. They even allowed me to write a personal note that was delivered to them the evening of.

While my parents were there they were pleasantly surprised by how delicious the food was. They appreciated the amount of explanation behind each course and wine pairing provided. They were incredibly happy with the entire evening and I highly recommend visiting!

i do not have enough words to describe how good the food is here. each course was stellar, and i am so glad to have splurged on the extended chef's menu, which provided at least 8 courses... a simply stunning meal beginning at my 9:30 pm reservation and ending right at midnight. wear clothing with as forgiving a waistband as you can; you'll want to eat every bite.

I ate here as a celebration for my upcoming birthday, on the last night of a US holiday. I was greeted by the staff and surrounding guests to say happy birthday (I had mentioned when booking). That was fun and lead to some friendly interaction with diners next to us, which we enjoyed.
The dining room is beautiful, though other guests are quite close, and if seated at the tables or bar seats near the door it would be disruptive to your meal.
We had the four course menu (the smaller option - as we’ve had way too much good eating recently) and it was well paced, with good servings and delightful extras - vegetable amuse bouche, excellent bread, and sweet cake treat. The wine list is good with options by the glass too. Service was good. Prices quite reasonable.
The food was the star. One course a little too salty, but wonderful exploration of interesting ingredients and beautifully cooked. Definitely on our list for any return trip - though I’d love to try their other locations next.
And we had a little bonus celebrity spotting too!

Easily the worst gourmet meal ever!

This restaurant is pretentious and lacks innovation at all levels. Our meal consisted of paltry menu items that lacked any advanced flavor. Simple items were presented in the most pretentious manner, however, the items lacked flavor or idea. It was, at best, an empty and unappealing meal.

Ideas of hunger and fat are greatly portrayed in the presentation. Limited portions and those in abundance of fat proliferated the meal. You are faced with limited portions that feature high fat ingredients, which represents a highly unhealthy and, honestly, dishonest meal composition. It leaves you to believe real nutrition or flavor exists, but sadly, no, you are disoriented by lard.

Service was just ok. My wine glass ran empty more times than I can count. And the sommelier has trouble selecting any palatable wines. Variety is assured, but the immense lack of any knowledge was disheartening. My toddler could have recommended better wines.

In all, a mediocre experience, and I doubt I will ever try this place again. It was a total waste of $600 and a nice Friday evening out. The meal was ordinary and we were still hungry after eating.

Who has six courses and is still hungry? Well, us, after a meal at Blue Hill.

This was my first time at Blue Hill after wanting to go for some time. Often when I have such high expectations I am disappointed, but not here!! My husband and I both agree this was the best meal we have ever had. While pricey, the flavors, particularly of the vegetables, are like nothing you have experienced elsewhere. We will be going back a few times each year!
