Such a great place on every possible level .
The paella was awesome
Delicious and great choices for fish and seafood! Servers - Jesus was wonderful! Easy to find and pleasant to dine outdoors.
Amazing food AND amazing service
The host and servers we’re 100% on top of everything! The food was excellent and it was the absolute best night out we have had in ages. Would definitely go back and definitely recommend. A huge thank you to the team at blue ribbon for making our date night so fun and memorable. We had the crab cocktail ( comes already deshelled with a homemade aoli) shrimp with the most delicious ravioli And steak au poivre w fries. The beer and wine selection was thoughtful and not overwhelming and delicious. Yum!
The staff,.service and food was outstanding.
Food amazing. Cocktails amazing. Service amazing. A bit loud would be only critique. Paella and bread pudding were a highlight!
Always great! Been going for 20 years. Love it!
Just delicious & our server was such a sweet guy!
Jeremy was a fantastib server to these diners from Pittsburgh. keep up the awesome work.
Good food and great service. Would definitely go back.
Everything tasted well seasoned and fresh. The fried oysters were heaven.
Amazing as always lovely staff fresh seafood. 5 stars!
The overall food experience was excellent but given the uptick in Covid-19 positive cases in New York City my wife and I were extremely disappointed by the total absence of Covid protocols in the restaurant. While I understand that restaurants are trying to make up for lost time, given the fact that fewer than 50% of New Yorkers are fully vaccinated we would expect that restaurant employees and managers would be wearing masks or that there would be a posting as to whether employees were fully vaccinated.
My wife and I have dined indoors at many restaurants since restrictions have been eased and have been generally impressed that most restaurants are continuing to maintain some degree of Covid protocols. That was not the case last night and while we enjoyed our meal immensely, it was unpleasant having to experience anxiety about our safety while dining even though we are both fully vaccinated.
Bottom line, we will not consider returning to this restaurant until Covid is in the rear view mirror or the restaurant shows greater sensitivity to diners who continue to have concerns about Covid transmission.
The food here is amazing! I had the bone marrow with oxtail marmalade.. and holy mother of god! DELICIOUS. Everything we ordered was absolutely amazing! The staff is friendly. I took my boyfriend here for his birthday and he loved it! We will definitely be coming back!
Service was A plus
Food was top notch
Wonderful time as usual! It was not only excellent food but a real treat to see so many old friends. This is a special restaurant.
Fantastic all around. Food was extraordinary; service was very personal and the experience was lovely. Very comfortable and fun.
We had a memorable meal last night at Blue Ribbon Brasserie. Everything on the seafood "plateau" was perfect. And they served up some of the best fried chicken I've ever had.
I have been here several times and the food is always great so may thing I want to eat and I alway over ordered.
My daughter’s 22nd Bday. My wife and myself visited Blue Ribbon Brasserie back in 1995 and it is still our favorite Manhattan restaurant by far !
Great food. Good outdoor setup. Good value for awesome dinner.
It’s been a wonderful and reliable favorite of ours for over 25 years. Still delivers every time
The menu has lost some of its greatest hits.
Great service, very pricey. Nice for a special occasion.
Great service, great food. The fish was cooked perfectly. The ambiance was friendly.
Great experience. Food was delicious. The service was outstanding, and the spot has a cool vibe. Top notch seafood across the board. Try the purple cow mixed drink.
One of the Best restaurant in New York. Food is incredible and the team as well! Always perfect service and experience. Amazing amazing restaurant! Hostess is also friendly and professional, very nice lady!
The server was quite accommodating and so was management. Anything that was not to our satisfaction, was addressed immediately to ensure a positive experience. Food was gourmet as usual and at no point were we rushed. We had ample time to enjoy ourselves. Will look forward to coming back.
We love this restaurant; the staff are always welcoming & accommodating, the food is superb, and the atmosphere is old school New York. A subtle gem in NYC!
Perfect for a date / special occasion / business meeting / or casual hangout with friends
From the moment I walked in I was greeted by the bartender and from this moment the service was impeccable. I would recommend this place to all my friends and family . Everyone was so kind and that the food and drink was amazing .
Pretty nice, clean, friendly atmosphere and great food wow the food definitely the best will be going there again real soon
Food was good, filet slightly over cooked and muscles did not come with bread-it should - soak up the sauce. Fried chicken excellent. I would come back try again.
Best fried chicken in NYC!
As FABULOUS as the day it opened! Never disappoints with outstanding food from their wonderfully eclectic menu and the best energy and laid back and warm vibe.
Amazing to be back at our favorite spot in NYC. A little disappointed the menu was missing ley staples you used to go for.
Thanks for taking the time to share this review. We are adding menu items back each week so please check back and come see us again soon.
Waiter became impatient and brusk when asked one question about deserts. Ruined the dinner.
It was an awesome meal. We loved the mussels and the skate. Definitely worth it.
Excellent food - loved the fondue and fried oysters! My fiancé had the fried chicken and enjoyed it very much!
Great food, attentive staff and old soho charm, not over the top and great for friends or date night
Everything was perfect from the food to the service
