Love this place, the food is amazing!
The service, food, and ambiance were all amazing! I was especially happy to be seated immediately. Thank you for a great evening out!
Blue Ribbon is a fun place to eat great Japanese food - so long as you request to be seated in the front room where the sushi bar is. My dinner partner and I were initially seated in the "bar" area (with a television...). The ambiance of the room was, frankly, dead. However, I requested to be seated in the other room and the host graciously moved us. If you do not know to ask (or are just too shy) you will be forced into eating in a room full of dead air and whistle blows emanating from a sports television station. The food is great -- in particular the vegetable flight. Additionally, the bartender made a custom drink for me and it was absolutely delicious. A bit pricey, but worth a splurge. Good place to go if you're on the LES, want a cocktail, and are down to try some yummy and fresh sushi!
Amazing service and food
Favorite place, always great food great service. A regular here every year.
Dinner with girlfriend and both our moms.
Ambiance is solid. Medium noise level.
Fish was solid - good, nothing life changing.
Get the sushi platter, but make sure to check what rolls are included. We got stuck with eel and salmon skin rolls, which are underwhelming. The lobster avocado roll was fantastic! We definitely ordered the wrong rolls.
Good experience, unlikely to return.
$90pp with a bottle of wine.
Lovely atmosphere and incredibly fresh sushi. We sat in a banquet in the bar area which was great for conversation.
Food was ok...service was great....not a great value for the quality or quantity of food we got.
Never disappointed , I have been there many many times,, all good food, good service.
They always treat us excellently when we go, and the food is always superb! It's one of our favorite NYC spots to celebrate meaningful events :)
I had high expectations of this place, but everything we ordered was mediocre and overpriced for what they were. we sampled several items of appetizers, teppanyaki, and a sushi plate. Disappointed in everything. placed was awesome though, can accommodate big parties.
Always good and on point. All sushi is well executed and very fresh. Would definitely recommend
Great filet mig in, sushi and cocktails
A truly wonderful meal in a setting that felt transporting, and very nice staff made this belated birthday dinner very special.
Wonderful service from wait staff! Tasty samplings from menu. Love the oxtail and marrow fried rice.
I think i was just a little put off where we were seated when I specifically mentioned that it was a birthday celebration and wanted to show off the place.
It took us so long to order and get the check that half our party had to leave. We were there for almost 3 hours because of the slow service. Food was great.
Food was great! Waiter was slow. Food was slow to come out.
Food was overpriced
Prefer the more formal dining room.
Excellent food, very good service and very nice place
The food, service and atmosphere were all great...
I eat at a Blue Ribbon 2-3 times a year and I go specifically for the OxTail fried rice. This visit they ran out of that dish at 915pm which was extremely disappointing...
Great atmosphere, food tastes good! Recommended for friends and family.
Great food and really kind staff who were attentive.
Great dinner date here. We have been to another Blue Ribbon location uptown but never this one before. Dining area is very cozy and spacious at the same time. Friendly, sophisticated vibe. $$ seems low on yelp, i would rate this spot $$$. Cocktails and sushi were delicious. Highly recommend the furikake fries!
maybe just me - food wasn't good, service careless
We had an unbelievable sushi dinner!! Highly recommend!
Great restaurant all the way around from food to service.
The restaurant had no atmosphere, though to be fair we went on Sunday late afternoon, hence why it was empty. I really wanted to like it, since my son loves sushi, however apart from the miso soup, the rest was just about ok, I did not even finish my miso marinated black cod/seabass as it was too sweet.
I made this reservation for friends
including young children - finicky eaters,
i’m told that everybody loved the entire evening ESPECIALLY THE FOOD & SERVICE
Great food! Our waiter was very helpful, so nice and perfect service. Beautiful spot but hard to find the front entrance!
Very good sushi and service. A bit noisy. On the pricey side.
I know this is a sushi restaurant but. Damn those chicken wings are not to be missed. Sushi is pretty good too. Good value
We had such a great experience the first time we went we decided to go back for a special birthday. Overall experience was disappointing this time as we had a server who was more interested in getting off the clock. Food was good as always. However we sat for over 30+ mins with no drinks after our food was delivered to the table. Nothing at all was offered to get us more drinks. I don’t want to bash the restaurant as food and ambiance were good. However do to a server putting his self above the restaurant and our experience there, it made us not want to return.
Sushi dinner. Fabulous experience with delicious food, friendly & knowledgeable staff and great ambiance. Gets loud but that didn’t bother us. Pricey but good value for $.
Amazingly fresh fish!!
Overall great. Would recommend and go back
This place is famous for its fried chicken. We were excited to try it! We ordered the wings. They were not very good. The taste of the chicken was very gamey and there wasn't alot of meat. The batter was greasy and tasteless. A big disappointment for so much hype. The sushi was ok. Yellow tail was fine. We also had the Phoenix roll and it was pretty gross. I am all for "only veggies" but this was pretty tasteless. I don't think we will be back. The women's bathroom was pretty dirty. There was no toilet paper in any of the stalls so I had to come out and mention it to the hostess. Pretty disappointing for such expectations.
The service was very good and the food was excellent.
