I dine here at least once a month and have sent many people here. This is the first time I've had to remind a server to bring the drinks we ordered (twice, in fact). And, we felt as though they were rushing us. Food was still great, but I'll be keeping an eye on the service.

Tiny place with a good mix of small plates and full sized entrees. Good bar with creative specialties. Small tables a little tightly packed, with a communal table front and center. A good choice on the fringe of the Theater District.

We went back to Blue Dog because of a wonderful experience we had had n November 2018. What a HUGE disappointment this time around. The food was shockingly bad. Worst mussels and seafood pasta ever. Pistachio cheesecake was only redeeming factor and the server was friendly.

I recently had dinner with a friend at the New Blue Dog Cookhouse. The dinner itself was good, but we were annoyed with our service. The server was good once we were seated. However, a person at the table next to us dropped her mobile phone behind the seat and it took almost 30 minutes to retrieve it. We had to leave our seats while the staff worked to get the phone out from a narrow space. The staff on duty did not even consider moving us to a different location (there were a lot of empty tables), nor did they offer an apology for the inconvenience or even offer a drink. We considered the experience to be rude and it demonstrates that this restaurant does not treat its customers with respect. We will not go there again, nor recommend this restaurant to anyone who inquires.

Went with a group of 6 after a 2pm show. The food at New Blue Dog was INCREDIBLE!!! The fried calamari was so good, we had to order another! 3 of us ordered the Cheesus Christ, and again, fantastic! The wait staff was so nice and attentive. There is a big table in the middle, so you may be seated with strangers. It was a tight fit, and difficult for the waiters/customers to walk past us (we were right next to the bathroom), but everyone was very sweet and understanding. It got packed pretty quickly (arrived about 445pm), so I'd definitely suggest reservations! Would absolutely return!

Tried several, but not a fan of various deviled eggs. Couldn’t you just make a plain version?

Burger was delicious!

Apparently, building HVAC broken (not restaurants fault), but alternative NOT WORKING. It was HOT out and various portable HVACs were running, but not cooling space down.

Food and service decent, but I wouldn’t return until I get notice that HVAC is repaired.

Welcoming, intimate, atmosphere and really good food. Perfect for my family of four, two adults and two teenagers, looking to relax quietly and have a good meal after a long day of sightseeing. Other patrons in the restaurant seemed to be a mix of tourists and locals. I had a salad and seafood pasta, both of which were excellent.

The service was excellent! The deviled eggs were basically hard boiled eggs with the yolk still in it and a fancy topping. They would have been better without the yolk. Everything thing else was great! Definitely try the short ribs!

It's worth getting cozy with other diners in this small space in order to enjoy the great food and creative drinks served in an atmosphere I'll call "Contemporary Prohibition". I highly recommend the Glen Coco - I had two - and if you like deviled eggs, taste a few of their spins on a classic. The Canadian Bacon & Chorizo deviled egg was fantastic! My companion enjoyed the Notorious D.O.G burger and I had the Braised Short Rib, which fell apart at the prodding of my fork - perfect tenderness!

I had such a wonderful time at this restaurant and very glad that I went there. It was well worth it, I was not expecting it but I was given a free meal for my birthday. I am very grateful for that. Thanks so much for great food and an awesome time.

Food was great. The restaurant is tiny and our high top table for 4 faced a wall so it was impossible to talk.

I was looking for a vegetarian friendly place near the theatre district as I am vegetarian but my guests were not. This place fit the bill. The drinks were delicious and the food was amazing. We ordered a bunch of appetizers and were satisfied. I would go again and have a full dinner but it was nice to try out a lot of different menu items.

This restaurant is basically one room with tables very close to each other. There was one very large group in the center seated at long connecting tables. The atmosphere was loud and lively. Having said that, the menu is great with lots of options for “healthier” eats. We opted to share a delicious vegetable quesadilla with steak and a light yet refreshing Niçoise salad. Definitely make a reservation and be prepared for a lot of noise.

Ore theater dinner. Very small place which is ok but a table for two is made into a table for three and we were stuck in a corner next to a large dehumidifier. One member of my party is on the stocky side and he had to sit at an uncomfortable angle. Took quite awhile before anyone acknowledged is for drinks. Then we ordered. Food was cold and fair. A diner does a better job of a burger then they do for much less cost. We wanted more drinks and no one bothered after we were served a crappy meal to even ask us.
I do not recommend this place at all. Get a hot dog from a vendor. You’re better off.

Service was lacking and not very attentive. Never checked if we would like another round of drinks and didn’t check on how our meals were until we were halfway finished. Chicken was extremely dry, but the Sliders were delicious. Perhaps it was just a one off night, because the previous visit we did not have any issues.
