Blue Smoke Battery Park City Ratings and Reviews
I will never be blue after dining at Blue Smoke. The food was incredible. Ann Marie made us feel like family. And we had the added privilege of meeting Farmhouse Chef Jamie DeMent. It was a delicious evening. The chicken just right. The turnips (who eats turnips?) were sexy and the broccoli starter featured an egg and just the right amount of spices.
Tremendous service. Extremely friendly staff that made me feel at home with great conversation and even better service. There was a trouble couple sitting next to our table and the staff handled it perfectly. This will for sure be a place I frequent in the future.
One of the best things about this Blue Smoke location is just that, location. We love that after dinner you can take a walk down by the water-side and have a wonderful back drop of the Freedom Tower. Food was good but it is not cheap. Dinner for a party of 4 (inclusive on a bottle of wine and 1 beer) was a total of $300 plus when you add a 22% tip (our waitress Sam deserved it). But for a special occasion it was cool just not something we could or would do on a regular unless your pockets are set up like that. We'll be back.
Stopped here for a late lunch off of a friend’s recommendation and we were not disappointed. My wife and I ordered the hamburger and my kids got the ribs. The food was really good but the service was absolutely outstanding! Hamburgers came out a little too rare for our tastes but the manager took care of it and more than made up for it. Would definitely go back!
Went to celebrate my daughter's birthday. We had the "Whole Pit" which is everything on the menu. Its a BBQ place, pretty good for north of the mason/dixon line. I especially loved the smoked andouille sausages. Many many beer selections, and they were nice enough to plate my daughter's dessert with Happy Birthday and a candle.
While visiting NYC for my sons 16th birthday we ventured over to the Blue Smoke restaurant intrigued by their BBQ menu.
Adults started out with two of their custom cocktails (Don Q Puerto Rice Relief and Steen's Sazerac) and the boys had Texas Cream Soda and Cheerwine. All was fantastic.
For app we had the BBQ potato chips with the blue cheese dips --- HEAVEN! Waiter asked if we wanted more chips and we said yes (there was more dip to eat!) this did cost an extra $5 (wish they would have mentioned that)
Three of us chose the Choice of Meat with two sides and one had the burger.
Brisket had good smoke ring and fantastic bark. The ribs were equally tasty. Sides: Mac Cheese (very cheesy), Collard Greens (especially tasty and not soupy like some others I've had), Pork/Beans and Fries.
I recommend this place for excellent BBQ. It was a great experience and priced at a two-time-a-year visit for me (but then it is NYC so probably appropriately priced for the city)
Your server is your best friend here. While not on the menu, we asked what he'd want his Mom to have if she visited him at work. The answer: brunt ends and wings - neither were on the menu, but magically those "in the know" can sometimes make magic happen. We also had deviled eggs which were awesome as well.
My girlfriend and I had a BALL at Blue Smoke Battery Park and we cannot WAIT to return. Our waiter, Ben, was GREAT and seemed to know what we needed before we did! The food was scrumptious, the atmosphere was fun and kinda funky and we had a really great time. We highly recommend this restaurant for all kinds of occasions.
So delicious! My friend and I, both vegetarians, came here primarily for the key lime pie, but EVERYTHING was delicious. As you'd imagine, it's not a hot spot for vegetarian food, but we shared a four appetizers/side dishes and it made for a completely filling meal. We had the pimento cheese, which came with beignet -like bread, an iceberg salad, sweet potatoes, and macaroni and cheese. Highly highly recommend!
Every experience at this location has been a pleasant one. Whether you are sitting at the bar, outdoors or at an indoor table the service is top rate. The wait staff is friendly and professional. The bar staff is attentive and knowledgeable. The food is definitely top rate and consistent. If you’re looking for a restaurant with a neighborhood feel and quality food this is the place to go! Can’t recommend highly enough!! Love it here!
I grew up in Atlanta with biscuits and chicken and have worked in KC. My standards for meat are high. I was in NY for business and needed a restaurant that was good food with beer (4 guys). Blue Smoke was acceptable but not go-out-of-your-way memorable. The servers were attentive and enthusiastic. Drinks were good (not great). Food was cooked properly for BBQ.
I expected more based on stellar tripadvisor rating and was disappointed. If you bring slightly lower expectations, you won't be.
Stopped in after visiting One World Trade...what a treat!
Very good bourbon cocktails and beer! Alberto, our bartender was welcoming and top notch. We felt right at home and the BBQ was outstanding! We will be back to explore this neighborhood more on our next trip from DC
Had the pork shoulder & wedge salad. Wedge salad was OK, won't order it again, overpriced by 60%. I suggest a traditional blue cheese & bacon wedge. $16 for a strange tasting wedge was not worth the price. Pork shoulder was outstanding! ...portion size was like a side order, very, very small serving, left me hungry for an entre & I don't eat much! Staff was friendly & welcoming, especially that Texas gal! Altogether an OK experience, just felt cost did not match the quality or size of the product.
