We went there for my son's 21st birthday dinner. Everything was fantastic. Food was delicious and service was spot on. I would go there again in a heartbeat.

If you've lived in NYC any amount of time you've likely had the experience of being trapped on a subway that is delayed because of activity in the station ahead. That's what happened to me on my way to Blue Ribbon and they couldn't have been more amazing. They said they'd take care of my guest and by the time I arrived she was positively giddy over the delectable fondue they'd suggested. Since I was SO late, I had a fresh and flavorful (but low prep time) shrimp cocktail. The waiter was great about being attentive so we could get out in time for our theater. I will ABSOLUTELY go back when I have more time to indulge and maybe get those chicken wings.

This is my go to place everytime we come to NYC. Everything we had on the menu was outstanding. My personal favorites fish soup and calamari! This is a neighborhood place small but worth every penny.

The drinks were great. However, the food left a lot to be desired. The collard greens were awful. As a southerner, I know how to make collard greens and this wasn't it! The chicken lacked flavor. My daughter had the oysters and they were not very good. However, our point of reference is Palm Beach Grill & Café Chardonnay in Palm Beach. They make the best Oysters Rockefeller I have ever had! My husband ordered the Striped Bass and he said that it was under-seasoned and they left a very thick blood line in the fish. As an angler, he hates that! We will be eating at the Blue Ribbon Federal Grill tonight. I have eaten there several times in the past and enjoy the food and atmosphere a lot better than Blue Ribbon Brasserie.

Late night gem. It’s not “quiet” but that’s just so you can talk to your table without others eavesdropping. They know what they’re doing here

I’ve always heard great things about Blue Ribbon, but the experience far exceeded our expectations! Dinner was delicious, food was prepared to perfection. It was honestly one of (if not the best) restaurant meal I’ve ever had. I only wish we stayed for dessert. I won’t make that mistake a second time!

I have been wanting to go to Blue Ribbon for a long time, and it did not disappoint. It was lively on a Wednesday night. The service was friendly and attentive, and the food was incredible. The oysters we had were very fresh and flavorful. I asked for horseradish as a garnish, and it appeared to be freshly shaved. The bone marrow with oxtail marmalade is worth a visit in itself. Both of the mains we tried (the hangar steak and the friend chicken) were excellent.

A true gem! We saw this restaurant featured on Flay List (Bobby Flay) right before a trip to NY. It was exactly what we were looking for - great service, amazing food, and a bustling non pretentious vibe. It was so good this will be a go to for us every time we come
