Took family from Italy here because they love fish but apparently sushi there is poor quality. We have ordered the Omokase in the past but it was no longer on the menu. The waitress asked the chef if they could make 3 for us and they obliged happily since they had a good assortment of fish. The food was delicious as always and came in a timely fashion, but I had to flag down our server twice to order more bottles of water ( we ripped through 4). Dessert was phenomenal as well, their chocolate Bruno was fantastic. They were very accommodating and I always feel proud bringing guests there.
Very nice ambience to Blue Ribbon. Friendly staff, nice layout, good covid practice standards in place. Food was very fresh, delicious and priced well. Staff was very responsive to our needs and checking on us. Thank you so much Blue Ribbon, would gladly come back.
Delicious and good vibes!
As always outstanding!
Delicious food and Great service.
We always have a great experience at BR. Our service was excellent as was the food.
Service phenomenal! Food Excellent! It was a little noisy and loud. Other than that, it was a fantastic dining experience.
Amazing food, amazing staff, amazing sake. Love this place sooooooo much!!!
Had a great experience! The food was delicious and the ambiance was mellow
Great place for a fun dinner out with friends! Great food great service. The drinks were amazing
Phenomenal Sunday dinner experience at Blue Ribbon Izakaya . Great ambience and had the entire heated outdoor area to ourselves. Sushi and sashimi (mackerel, yellowtail, tuna, salmon and spicy lobster roll) were all so fresh and smooth and short rib, chicken thigh and tiger shrimp yakitori were grilled to perfection. The homemade ginger bread bread pudding, tempura brownie with berries and ice cream and hot green tea wrapped up an amazing meal served by Paul S., waiter extraordinaire!
Will definitely be back. On the next trip, will try the oxtail fried rice and omelette and other specialty rolls.
As always the food, service and ambiance was outstanding!
Came on a Monday night, I had made a reservation for 10:00 but came an hour earlier; luckily there was seating and we were accommodated then. Service was friendly and polite; describing every piece of sushi we've ordered. Overall, a great experience and would frequent again.
Went for grandson’s birthday, he loves sushi. Ate early, party of 8. We all loved the food and had a great time
Excellent all around!
We were running late for our reservation but let the restaurant know we were on our way by replying to the text messages. When we finally got there, the host and hostess were rude saying we didn’t contact them about being late so they were still going to seat us but we had to leave in 90 minutes. I told them I did text back which they then checked. But when they saw that I did answer back they didn’t say anything, just seated us at the table right behind the register.
Our server, Takashi W, however, was very professional and the food was good, almost making up for the unpleasant experience.
I don’t make it a habit of being late for my reservations, or provide lame excuses for being late. I do my part and expect to be treated like every other customer.
I’ve had better sushi when ordering $10/$15 lunch specials in NYC. Hopefully this is just a supply chain issue and the prices they charge are based on more than marketing and location. Do NOT order the Blue Ribbon roll with the lobster (not sure if that’s the exact name. It’s ~$32.) Nowhere near the quality or taste needed for that price.
Our waitress was great.
great sushi place especially if you prefer ordering ala carte. Huge comfortable room with lots of booths. Every morsel delicious.
Good as usual. Very dependable
The food was absolutely terrible. Never eaten worse sushi in my life. Blue Ribbon used to be one of my favorite places prior to the pandemic. After last week’s awful experience, never coming back there. Order 7 things off the menu and all of them were awful.
Food was excellent- they were out of a lot of items which was unusual for a Tuesday
Service was great and the food we ordered was great
Food was amazing, the fried chicken wings apps are to die for with the honey wasabi sauce, but needs a little more wasabi in my opinion. The drinks needs to be a little stronger to much on the sweeter side, but overall everything was fantastic
Every dish served was phenomenal as well as the service. Really blown away by this place.
Excellent sushi and fried chicken. Still committed to COVID precautions.
Sushi and cocktail were subpar for its price. Cocktails were prebatched
Great restaurant, excellent food n service.
The only downside to this wonderful restaurant are the steep stairs to climb to the upstairs dining room. Although we discovered afterwards that there is elevator access through the adjacent Allen Hotel on the backside of the restaurant.
As far as food and service, both were excellent. I especially enjoyed the Miso Black Cod which was so tasty and incredibly flaky. The spider roll, lobster roll and shrimp with tempura flakes were equally good. The restaurant offers a great dessert selection but I want to make special mention to the chocolate cake which tasted of hazelnut and was creamy beyond words. The creme brulee, green tea ice cream and sorbets were also tasty. The restaurant offers a nice Sake selection as well.
I love Blue Ribbon, always exceptional food and service
Service is very good, can be subtlety less rushed, but overall a great experience; great fish quality, it is a high price menu restaurant and the sought after Otoro is overpriced. It is a great experience for a special occasion.
Blue ribbon izajaya is one of my favorite restaurants. Always they gave us great food and amazing service.
Amazing food and atmosphere! Highly recommend!
We enjoyed our dinner very much. The sushi were very fresh and excellent. The rolls were not as good,a lot of rice not much fish and taste.
Service was friendly and efficient. Overall enjoyable.
Great ambiance and authentic food!
I love this place. Great food and great service
We arrived at 5:30 do it was basically empty, but the servers were attentive and eager to please. The food was delicious and served promptly. It’s definitely expensive, but worth it. Great place for date night.
Food and service were outstanding!
Wonderful food and service. Restrooms were disgusting.
Place looks really run down. Furniture is scratched and worn food was good but nothing special. There were a few flies buzzing around which I didn’t like much
