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.
It was amazing the waiter was very useful in helping decide which was good to choose.
Very good food! Small portions but tasty
Awesome food and service as usual! Managers Nithi and Yoshi are awesome! Made sure we got our favorite table.
Service was impeccable and food was WONDERFUL. great experience.
Amazing food, extremely respectful and fast service!!
Lovely staff. Very $$ for what it was. Loved being outside. Expected it to be more connected to hotel...

Food and service wonderful .. loved sitting outside on terrace .. the ginger bread pudding was amazing!
Great food. Great Vibes. Great Service. 10/10 would reccomend.
Excellent food and service as always! We sat outside on the private terrace on a Sat night when it was 52 degrees. There was a lot of open air but we felt so warm that my BF was able to keep his jacket off the whole time. Highlights were the fried chicken (of course) and seared duck. We also got the tempura shrimp, wakame and tofu, spider roll, unagi bowl, fried clam roll, and free green tea ice cream with a candle for my friend's birthday! Get the Blue Ribbon Daijingo sake bottle - great value and so good.
Amazing meal. The sushi is melt in your mouth. The cooked food is excellent and the service outstanding!
Restaurant is beautiful, food and drinks were great, server was speedy and very nice. A little pricey, but well worth it for some outstanding sushi.
The outdoor space leaves much to be desired. The food was very good, as always, but the ambience and initial service from the host really didnt enhance the experience in any way. I would go back but only when I'm prepared to eat indoors. The hostess really could be more welcoming.
Love Blue Ribbon restaurants, and this was my first time at this one. We had the blue ribbon lobster roll, sushi pieces, and a fried chicken entree and shared. All was tasty but not over the top delicious. The ginger bread pudding was delicious though and they put a candle for my boyfriend’s birthday which was nice. Loved the outdoor patio with a heater overhead if needed. Great service and I would return!
Great service, great food, very fresh
Unfortunately we were rushed. We had a 9 PM reservation, and yet they made last call for food at 9:15, and , they were telling us 10 minutes later it was last call for alcohol as well.
It’s extremely disappointing to spend that and look forward to the ambience, and be rushed to the extreme. The food is still amazing as usual!
Food, Service, Ambiance was great!
I am never disappointed.
