Exquisite dining experience. Everything was superb.
We reserved a table but opted to have dinner at the bar. We both ordered the Farmer’s Feast tasting menu and did not look back. Every course was perfection. I will definitely be making another trip back.
Still one of my NYC favorites; ambiance, service, food quality and presentation!
Had an absolute wonderful dinner. Fantastic service, precise and warm.
Two things here:
1) The subterranean location is, well, a subterranean location. A little dark and low-ceilinged.
2) Half of the first round of drinks ended up in one of my party's lap. We did not make a fuss. They were prompt about mopping up/drying out. They comped the first round of drinks, an underwhelming gesture.
Among America’s Best Restaurants. Famous chef, sustainable sourcing, world-class service. Essential for gourmands
Wow, just wow. My husband and I were both blown away during our visit. Everything was absolutely amazing. Food is beyond spectacular; service is impeccable. I would not hesitate to go back next time we're in NYC. Pro-tip: order the extended tasting menu. trust.
Everything tastes so precise like in HD. It is clever, creative and delicious. The service is efficient and kind but a bit too fast. The atmosphere is welcoming and lively. A slightly brighter lighting would better show the beautiful colors and composition of the splendid plates. Overall outstanding food and a great evening.
The food is delicious and interesting without being overwrought, the service is warm, attentive and enthusiastic, and they always go the extra mile whenever given the chance. I love this place. I think it’s a great place to bring people who are deeply interested in food, but also people who are put off by some of the things that are normally associated with the experience of so-called “fine dining.” Maybe it’s not great for something like a pre-Broadway dinner—the service is excellent in every way, but it would be a shame to go here if you don’t have the time to really savor the food and overall experience.
I must say that I was a bit underwhelmed with Blue Hill, but maybe my expectations were just too high. The space and ambience were great. Our server was great. Our wines were great. But, the food just didn't do it for me, and I love vegetables more than the average person. We had the Farmer's Feast of six courses, and there wasn't one dish that I went home thinking about that night. The homemade bread and butter with seeds was quite delicious though.
