Very pleasant experience. The four of us had all different entres and they were all great.
Met some friends there for Restaurant Week brunch. Overall, very nice ambiance and the food was very good. The bottomless mimosas for $9.99 was a good deal.
First, the place is dated beyond belief. I can see how when it first opened it was cutting edge, but it’s obvious nothing has been done upstairs in some time. The upstairs was empty for the most part with stacked furniture all over the back of the restaurant. The bathrooms smelled terrible and the space overall is right out of a bad 80’s video. With that being said, the atmosphere was by far not the worst part of brunch. The food took that prize.
For my first visit ever to this “restaurant,” I experienced brunch during the winter Restaurant Week. I was excited for the experience because I heard good things about the restaurant. After today, I can only imagine they were talking about a different place. First, the brunch menu online and the one we got today was very different. There were a number of items that are not available. Second, for them to say they are participating in Restaurant Week is a joke. The greasy menu we got that advertised 2 courses for $15.00 included the most unappetizing selections and was minimal at best. While I decided to stick with the regular menu, my friend chose to go with the 2 course meal.
I started with the crab dip and then ordered the Chesapeake Crab Benedict. The crab dip was pretty basic with cauliflower in it and came in a small bowl with 5 toasted Melba Toast. So much for sharing, I guess. The Chesapeake Crab Benedict is just offensive for a Maryland Restaurant. The moment the waiter put it in front of me, it was obvious they were once frozen patties. Really? It’s Maryland and they served me generic crab cakes! Needless to say it was awful! Another person in my party started with the Blue Cheese mussels; all 5 of them which came a huge water spotted, black pot with huge pieces of onion. The appetizer; however, wasn’t nearly as bad as the dried out veggie omelet. Do yourself a favor..skip this place!
Went solo to try out the restaurant week special. I sat at a bar table since the bar was packed and getting a table would take longer. Everything was great with the exception of everyone not solo getting more attention and faster service. I got there way before the couple next to me but they managed to get everything faster and more attention. I was actually forgotten about a few times, including when it came to silverware. I had to track someone down while my steak made me drool, I was almost tempted to use my bare hands. I get it a table of 1 isn’t going to tip as much as a table for 2. Probably won’t be dining solo at this restaurant again tho.
This is my second visit to Blue Hill. Prime time Saturday night with my son. Didn't realize it was restaurant week. They had a menu for it and that was our choice. Gnocchi with wild mushroom cream sauce was divine. Everything was cooked to perfection and the cocktails were good too. We'll be back!
My husband and I were pretty disappointed in our meal at Blue Hill Tavern. We both ordered red snapper, which was over cooked and a little tough. The accompanying cous cous on my plate was really undercooked, crunchy like barely cooked pasta. You could look at it and see it wasn't done. That's really amateur to not serve properly cooked cous cous. My husband's cous cous was fine so I'm not sure what happened with mine. The rest of the meal was okay, not great. We don't go out to dinner very often so this meal was a bit of a downer.
Visited during Restaurant Week.
Food was very good, service very attentive and nice atmosphere.
We went out with friends for New Year's Eve at Blue Hill Tavern and had a wonderful time. The ambiance was quietly elegant without being overly formal; the servers were attentive and prompt. Among the appetizer, my husband's fried calamari salad was a standout, and our friend enjoyed his mussels. My crispy escargots were good too, though I would have liked to have had more greens, and perhaps the amarillo sauce on the side rather than tossed with the snails. The entrees were delicious; my sous-vide rack of lamb was excellent, likewise my husband's sous-vide pork tenderloin, and our friends enjoyed their seafood risotto. For dessert, three of us opted for the key lime bar, which was delightful with a salted caramel drizzle--just the right touch of something sweet--and my husband also enjoyed his bread pudding. The Blue Hill Tavern never disappoints, and the New Year's Eve prix fixe menu, while not inexpensive, was surprisingly reasonable compared to many other options.
New Year’s Eve dinner. 3-course prix fix menu for $59.99 was worth every penny. Portions were perfect, and nothing left out for the price. Compared to other high-end restaurants on NYE, $59.99 for 3 courses was a steal. Our waiter was attentive and made solid recommendations. We will definitely be back.
Recently went here to celebrate my wife's birthday with friends. The service was up and down. The valet was extremely nice and customer service oriented. Our server was not that warm or personable. She had to be reminded about requests... she forgot at least one of our party member's drinks from the bar and she disappeared on us a few times when we needed her. The food was good. A couple people sent their food back for temperature issues, but overall no complaints. We weren't aware of the cake fee, which would have been close to $50 for our party, which should have probably been included with the 20% mandatory tip for the marginal service we received.
