The food was good , the server dropped his order pad the he couldn’t find it. He served one of our orders incorrectly and the other main course did not arrive.
The service here is pretty poor and we won’t return.

Meal absolutely exceeded my expectations and was a very pleasant surprise. Sushi was excellent, ambiance was very cool if maybe a tiny bit too loud. Our waiter Kenneth was amazing especially dealing with our larger party. Would definitely recommend. 10/10.

This is the third time we've eaten at Blue Ribbon and I was so disappointed! We were looking forward to another great dining experience here and craving fresh sushi. The service and ambiance were excellent with the exception of it taking FOREVER to get our cocktails. We ordered our drinks before even looking at the food menu, however, we were half-way through our meal and had to ask where our drinks were. The sushi was not up to their usual standards. After only one bite of the $25 special of smoked bonita, we had to send it back (which we NEVER do). It was so fishy-tasting that, even after our cocktails and other food, the taste of it still lingered. The Hamachi was the best thing we ordered but the rest of the sushi seemed a little slimy and definitely not up to the meals we have had here in the past. So very disappointed!!!! With all the amazing sushi options in Miami, I'm not sure we'll give this place another chance.

Had dinner here with my daughter. The entire evening was fabulous. Food and service was impeccable. Really fun place and will miss it as I don’t get to see my daughter a lot (she lives in Florida). If I could give it more than five stars I would. Highly recommend.

A wonderful restaurant for sushi, beyond fresh. They do also have a few non sushi/Asian dishes that are also very good.

We visited Blue Ribbon Sushi for my husband’s birthday lunch (we were also staying at the hotel, so it was very convenient). It wasn’t very busy, probably because it was mid-day on a Wednesday. Regardless, we had a fabulous time! Sushi was so fresh and delicious! And the drinks were delicious.
It ended up being a little pricey, but it was worth it. Definitely recommend Blue Ribbon Sushi! 🍣👏🏼

Excellent oxtail fried rice and yuzu key lime pie. However, there is very limited street parking and $20 for valet parking for 2 hours during lunch time and a resort tax for diners is ridiculous.

Good sushi bar - South Beach has some great nigiri options like Naiyara or Nobu but an old fashioned sushi bar there really isn’t. This one is not Japan-great, but still very good. Lots of different fish, long sake list. The spicy crab roll was too salty for my taste.

Although we made reservations, they didn’t have a table ready for us (inside) but had one available outside. We waited at the bar and had a few drinks and were then seated about 30 min after our original reservations. Food was great and service was excellent.

The number one importance of a sushi restaurant is the quality of the fish. The tuna and several of the fishes were too soft and mushy in texture. Definitely not what I expected at a top rated restaurant. I feel that I am somewhat knowledgeable about fish quality having eaten at many top sushi restaurants. I think this restaurant should reconsider what they are serving to their customers.

One of my most favorite Sushi Restaurants in NYC has always been Blue Ribbon for many years. I took a close friend to the Miami Beach location and was not at all surprised at the quality all around. A great atmosphere was provided by the Plymouth Hotel across the street from the Bass Museum. Being a local guy it was kind of like being on vacation in your home town. We shared the “Miami Spice” menu; a mix of Sashimi and Sushi with some Octopus and Amberjack apps. The main course was more sushi and sashimi, which again was superior. I am very picky about my sushi. Blue Ribbon is at the top of the list for the best in town.

We have dined many times at Blue Ribbon in their Sullivan Street & Columbus Circle locations in New York city and have always enjoyed the food and our interactions with the wait staff and management.
They create a friendly atmosphere and the food is always top notch. The South Beach location is no exception. They truly make their customers feel welcome. Blue ribbon is one of our favorite Japanese
restaurants in Miami.
