The service was so painfully slow and nonexistent. We flagged down anyone for help throughout the entire meal.

If you have over 2 hours for breakfast, then the food was nice. Expect $80 for breakfast with 2 meals, 2 coffees, orange juice and tip.

Think long and hard before you go.

Came here for my boyfriends birthday and was not disappointed! He is the pickiest eater, and very rarely tries new things, when I could see even he was enjoying the food I was wowed. Our server was so lovely and so patient with us. If it wasn’t for the fact that they were closing as we were leaving and it was pouring- we would have stayed so much longer. We truly enjoyed ourselves, and the food was perfection. Cannot wait to go back again!

Hubby had a delicious custom omelet. I got the crispy French toast with bourbon caramelize bananas, which was as divine as it sounds. It was difficult to decide what to eat because everything sounded delicious.

We can to celebrate my son’s birthday. Initially we got a very welcoming and friendly service. The server took our order and we sat and waited for an hour next to an extremely loud large table.
When we ask a server to check on our food she said she would, but never returned. We then asked our server, and we he came back, he told us the kitchen missed our order and didn’t even start making it. They offered to make it quickly, but at that point we had enough and just left.
Extremely disappointing experience!

Very accommodating service team. Food was great, as was coffee. Nice interior space where we sat but a bit too loud for our meeting. Probably should have sat outside in their outdoor area but we played it safe with it being so high outside. In retrospect, the covered seating was pretty comfortable and would be my choice next time - and there will be a next time. Highly recommended.

Very very mediocre. The poached egg was nearly hard boiled it was so over cooked. Drinks are $16 for TINY little glasses the size of 2 shots maybe. Fries were soggy. I can’t believe they charge this much for this food

I took my wife here for your anniversary at 5PM on a Saturday and it was empty, which was glorious. We enjoy intimate spaces. She got the short rib (do yourself a favor...) and I got the Notorious D.O.G. Which was spot on! Truffle fries are a must! Will definitely go back!

we waited 40 minutes for the waiter to come take our order...and this was after i went to the front desk to ask for our party's order to be taken. when the server did come to take our order, he knocked over two of my friends' water glasses and as he was trying to clean it up he kept spilling more water. then when the bill came, a mandatory gratuity had already been included. there are probably over 1000 different places in nyc where you can get a decent brunch AND expect top notch customer service; blue dog is not one of them. come here if you like the idea of waiting 40 minutes to order, having a waiter spill water all over your brunch clothes, and overpaying for regular american food.

We have changed our automatic gratuity policy to parties of 5 or more only.

decent food, staff didn’t know which end was up though and left waitstaff swamped. our server was sweet & tried, but was spread way too thin. no manager or host helped him out. In fact, host & manager started eating at a table like they were diners. I had to go up to bar myself to get someone’s attention. prob not returning.

Treated three friends for dinner, one was visiting from Wisconsin. I have not been to The Blue Dog since before Covid - staff was very accommodating. New less restrictive NYS rules just enacted. Prices were still reasonable. We felt comfortable and had a pleasant meal, drinks and conversation.

We had a terrific Mother's Day brunch at The Blue Dog Cookhouse. The Oriental Salad was delicious, as was the Chicken & Waffles. (Nice touch with the Jalapeno Maple Syrup!) It was our first visit there, and we will definitely be back. A great find!

the burgers here are awesome. we had the notorious D.O.G and French connection. the butternut squash fries are so good with the Harrison aioli. the place is smaller than pics show, but the room has a handsome sexy atmosphere with good service. not rushed.
