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!
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
Omakase was terrific as well as staff.
Still great even in menu is slightly smaller now. Service was awesome. Very dependable, was able to satisfy kids and adults and allergies.
Descent food and drinks, great ambiance and service. Will definitely go back
Great food. Wonderful outdoor dining area (on 3rd floor above the NYC hubbub).
Blue Ribbon has excellent good, wonderful, kind, and professional servers and they ALWAYS take care of us when we go. We celebrate all our personal landmarks and important moments with me and will always keep coming back.
Service was top-notch. Prompt and helpful. We were each given a scrumptious small appetizer to start (no charge). And a free dessert for us to share—- Bruno chocolate cake! Food (sushi and sashimi and rolls) was exceptionally good.
Background music was today’s but not too intrusive. Impressive sushi bar with 5 chefs. Atmosphere in larger room was welcoming if a bit dark. Large outside seating area on second level overlooks street but we much preferred the indoor dining areas. We will definitely return. And soon!
Didn’t go for the sushi but for the bone marrow and oxtail rice, I would say it was totally overpriced and the bone barrow came in chunks which I have never seen before, I asked for uni shots and they didn’t have egg yolk, then I asked for tuna otoro, didn’t have that either, these are basic things needed in a sushi restaurant. Overall I thought everything was super overpriced the dishes are really small, we got octopus and dumplings and it was tiny. I will not go back
Food was very small portion and very expensive ,however food was hot and service was great it was just not worth 230 dollars to still go home hungry drink was mediocre for 17 dollars not what I expected at all
Expensive.. Just OK..
Great food and service was very good despite the short staff. The bone marrow fried rice is out of this world. Wish the music wasn’t quite so loud - it makes conversation almost impossible.
Great ambiance. Our service was top notch. Sushi was amazing and very high quality. Very nice drink selection as well.
Few of the items we ordered never came. One of the item they forgot to serve, they never placed the order in the kitchen and we had to keep asking about it for multiple times until it got served.
Blue ribbon has lost it, gone too main stream. Service was mediocre, menu was out of too many items, and the food was good but nothing to write home about. The price was expensive. There are better options these days.
There are various parts of the restaurant you can be served in. the inside is the most attractive Blue Ribbon sushi I've been to in Manhattan (midtown and soho being the others). and there are two different outdoor spaces: one along a balcony and the other on an exterior patio. I wasn't picky because I got the reservation the night before for prime hours of 7:30 on a Friday night, but not a fan of that patio. They had fans going, but it was hotter there than on the street. Also the furniture wasn't nice - it's really just COVID make-do type hard uncomfortable cheap furniture. That space wasn't designed to be part of the restaurant. So, points off for that. I'd go back - the service and the food was on point, just I'd make sure to be inside. Though honestly, it sounded pretty loud inside, so I'd also figure out another time to go.
One of the best Japanese menus for food and drink. great staff and attentive waiters
It was very good dinner and we had very good time. Every thing we ordered were delicious!!
Awesome! Excellent food and service.
One of our favorite restaurant in NYC. Food is still the same as good as it is. Service staff was attentive to take care of us. Still the same person as before pandemic period. We love them , and they love us. Highly recommend for this spot to celebrate your important occasions.
Everything was perfect! Outstanding
The food was great and so was the service. Just go there and replicate this order: shishito peppers, miso cod, king salmon sushi, toro sashimi, pork shumai and the fired rice. It was all so good.
Food was amazing, of course! Freshest sushi ever. Our original server did not return for an hour so we had to ask other servers to take our order.
The food was hood, portions small depending on what we ordered.
See ice very slow and not up to par. communication was definitely off. I asked for a hand towel, was told they didn’t have them and then they arrived but after sushi course :(
Thank you for such a wonderful experience Saturday night. Our server Golf was incredibly gracious. The food was amazing! Can’t wait to come back in the very near future. Thank you to all the staff. Great experience!!
Bad drinks but good filet minion. Love the apps! Great stuff
Beware! This place will be something you are not expecting. The place is not nice, the food is bleh and they are extremely understaffed. There is another place also named Blue Ribbon, that’s what you should be looking for.
Great food and staff!
Food, service, sake.. all really good. Would go again.
The food and drinks were amazing. The service was kind and attentive. Walked in and felt a good vibe all around. Highly recommend and will be returning very soon.
We had a good experience, but it is a bit pricy. The lychee martini was great!
Understaffed. Slow service. Needs an update. Food is good.
Sushi, as always, was delicious. Huge Blue Ribbon sushi fan!!
Best fish, great atmosphere, wonderful service. I've been going there since it opened.
