Food and service (wait staff) were amazing. One criticism is that the front hostess could be friendly and more welcoming. But otherwise nearly 5 star experience.

Do not go for dinner during this Covid period. The quality of the food was terrible, akin to that of a cheap dinner. Maybe they are not properly staffed and stocked due to Covid, but it was disappointing to say the least.

We were very disappointed in our choice for dinner. I read the reviews and they were very good, so we tried it. Service was poor and the food was just ok. I did like the butte it squash sticks appetizer.

Food was great. I had the scallops over barley risotto and my wife had the vegetable quesadilla. But getting served was nearly impossible, despite the place being pretty empty. I'm assuming it was just an off night and I'd try them again just because the food was so good.

We loved this place in the past, but today we had a very average conversation. Service was below their typical standard. Food was average. Did not feel like our typical Blue Dog experience.

This was overall a great experience. I guess eating outside is a challenge because unless the food comes out really hot it gets cold really fast. Especially this time of year. I would definitely eat here again. Love the menu choices.

Because of COVID 19, we had 'outdoor seating'. It was in the 'rotunda' of a very large building-- away from traffic noise and the prying eyes of walkers, fumes from passing vehicles, and perfect for inclement weather. The service was wonderful, the food very good. Because of the 'outdoor' seating situation, it is difficult to rate the restaurant on some things. But we would go there again. Try i!

Outdoor dining - lunch. Tables are in a rotunda so no worries of bright sun or rain. Eggs Benny - Eggs cooked correctly could have used a touch more hollandase. Crunchy french toast was two very thick slices with three half pieces of carmelized bananas. Very tasty.
Did not care for the Mimosa too much brut and OJ seemed watery and spouse said Bloody Mary was bland.
Overall OK.

We were visiting from out of town and followed open table list of restaurants. The outdoor seating and service were fine, but the food was not good. At.All. The best thing going were the truffle French fries, but they were sitting in a pool of oil. The kale salad was old. My husband’s Cobb salad had brown leaves. My daughter had ravioli... not much better. Artichoke and spinach dip was full of fat/butter with few hints of spinach nor artichoke. Overall, the dishes didn’t taste very good and were not fresh. Try another spot for much less money. Sorry

My wife and I needed a place to have a late lunch near Times Square and reserved a spot at Blue Dog the day before. Not only was the service exemplary, the Notorious D.O.G. burger was simply one of the best I have ever tasted! My wife had the Cheesus Christ burger w/Havarti and so enjoyed it that she wouldn't even give me a taste! Oh yeah, the drinks were great, as were the Parmesan fries! It was great getting back into the city after months of staying away, and The Blue Dog certainly helped make it an even better day!
