    What makes Blue Ribbon special is that the don't just have the "same ole" sushi/sashimi options. I have been eating sushi/sashimi all around the word for 25 years and I each time I go to Blue Ribbon there are no fewer than 8-10 options that I have never experienced anywhere.

    This was my first time dining with Blue Ribbon. My wife and I go out for sushi regularly and agree that this is very high quality sushi. The waitstaff are very knowledgeable and engaging. The bartenders are quick and the drinks are delicious. The only downside to this restaurant is the pricing. I am not accustomed to paying for sushi one roll at a time. I will certainly be back, but may have a snack before I arrive.

    While it was challenging to find the location at first, the “underground” ambience of the space was quite cozy & a lot more spacious than expected. Loved the bluefin collar in presentation & tenderness, but would have preferred the usual dipping sauce that is more tart/tangy/citrusy instead of the sweet (?) sauce that was used. Overall, definitely pleased to have scored the last bluefin order for the night despite being initially disappointed that the were out of my intentional order — the hamachi kama – by the time we were there. Blue ribbon platter had a lovely daily selection of sashimi & 3 rolls. The rolls were decent & met my expectations, but the sashimi options were clearly the stars on this one. Great cuts and variety. Definitely on the pricy-side, but that was expected. I really liked the personal branding touch on the “plating.” The service was spectacular in energy / warmth / knowledge & would revisit earlier to try other dishes!

    Food was standard sushi. Give it 8/10, maybe 8.5. Service was really friendly, although I kept getting someone else’s order and I felt bad that the waitress serving me had to keep correcting the mistake someone else made.

    Really enjoyed the experience. The service was good from the hosts and server. Ambience was airy and well lit, despite being a bit subterranean. The cocktails were nicely executed and the wine and sake selection were solid. The star of the show was the fish. Beautifully fresh, nicely plated and it was delicious. It's not cheap, but we felt the value was pretty solid for what you were getting.

    Highly recommended AAAA+++ The staff were very responsive and informative. I always enjoy the dragon rolls from here and other sushi. This location does not have the Ox Tail fried rice (signature dish) due to the kitchen size but other locations in NYC have it. The cocktails and lemonade are also very tasty. Do yourself a favor and check this place putts the sushi is amazingly excellent!

    Heard about this restaurant opening up and definitely wanted to give it a shot. I honestly wasn’t impressed with the restaurant. Although the sushi was really good, they were small and too expensive for the size and amount they give you. For two of us it was $100. Don’t plan on going back.
