The fried chicken was delicious and the portion generous. My issue is the loud music - like so many restaurants the volume is uncomfortably loud. I just don't get it.

Experience was good as always, but I noticed our server seemed a bit overwhelmed and wasn't as focused as my wife and I are accustomed to given that it wasn't a very busy night.

Thanksgiving dinner was never better. Turkey with the trimmings. Great service. Great value. Great time. I’m never dissatisfied with my meals here at the Ribbon.

Blue Ribbon never fails to deliver. The food is exceptional and the service matches the food. The manager is always present and helps the service when necessary. It is as well run as a Danny Meyer restaurant, and that is saying a lot. The kitchen is always amenable to modifications, so if you would rather have kale than the mashed potatoes (or the other way around), all you have to do is tell your waiter. We always enjoy a visit to Blue Ribbon, and we will be customers indefinitely.

My 2nd time here and the experience was just as good as the first. My son’s 12 birthday, the service was excellent, staff were very attentive and accommodating. The food was delicious.

I reserved since the online image showed tablecloths and this was for a special occasion. The food was good...a bit above average. What was outstanding was the wait staff, professional and personable. They made the evening special.

Friendly, top-notch service from our server Angela, even with the restaurant being super-packed. Glad we made a reservation. The food and ambience made it well worth the upscale pricing, and our kids enjoyed the experience, as well. Fried chicken was exceptional. The special, a striped bass, was perfectly executed.

Excellent meal - we shared a paella and a ribs appetizer. We had a wonderful waitress as well. Just a couple of complaints - it is rather loud - I'm wondering if some of it has to do with the acoustics. Also, I'm a big craft beer lover - just wish the selection had been somewhat better.

We started with the Lobster Mac & Cheese. Despite the bowl being super hot, the food was cold except for the bottom. Microwave? Its a shame because it cold have been really delicious otherwise. We were both happy with our main courses -- each $42. While good, not great. The ambiance was nice, the staff was pretty attentive. All in all, a nice night out but probably better restaurants in the area.

The food is fine—but no better; kind of routine. It’s expensive for what you get, the service is chaotic (and obtrusively rushed), and tables are incredibly close together. There are many better dining experiences in the area.

Great as usual. Everybody who works here is very professional. Food and service were awesome. Tomato soup appetizer was superb. Blackened catfish and fried chicken entrees were delicious. And the bar makes the best martinis! Consistently the best place in the neighborhood.

I had a 200 dollar coupon from open table and the restaurant was more than happy to accept it and give us great service and food. Love this place. Best fried chicken in the world. Best oysters too. Great time. Every time.

We celebrated our 45 Anniversary at Blue Ribbon on Saturday. It was our first time there and we were not dissapointed. We had a very good time. The food and drinks were good, we especially enjoyed the appetizers. The energy was high and the staff was outstanding. They made us feel like family. We highly recommend Blue Ribbon and will return.

We've eaten here a few times and always had a great experience. Not sure what was going on Sunday night, but 3 of our part of 5 received their food in a somewhat timely fashion, but the other 2 did not. Our server never checked on us nor noticed that 2 had not received their food. Eventually the hostess/manager came over to apologize and told us that my rice bowl would be out shortly and 5 more minutes for the fried chicken. I finished my rice bowl (after everyone else had eaten) and the fried chicken did not come out for another 20 minutes which we had to take home with us because we had to go.

I'm really disappointed in how our situation was handled. They comp'd our food, but really, if the staff had been paying attention to us and giving us updates on what was going on, we would have been fine. We normally love this place, but not sure when/if we'll return any time soon.

Try the paella y’all! Two of us shared one with half lobster. Spicy chicken sausage, mussels, clams, shrimp, squid and more. It was spicy delicious. So big we brought left overs home. Service, as always, was friendly, professional and super nice.

I love a good dinner & don’t mind paying the price, but we had the grilled octopus overpriced and with one small octopus tentacles over saturated bed of well seasoned potato- that’s a no no for me! Please don’t minimize your patron knowledge - we know how much octopus cost and I can cook - $20+ for one tentacle - u lost a customer! Inflation is not an excuse - we are all affected!
