Blue Smoke Battery Park City Ratings and Reviews
WOW. I’ve never been to Blue Smoke for brunch before but just wow. The biscuits are to die for and the bright eyed breakfast sandwich OUT OF THIS WORLD - how do you beat fried chicken with a fried egg on a donut YOU DONT. So good. Best thing I’ve eaten in awhile. Blown away!
The only problem: I was there on a very cold night and was seated at a table that was pretty uncomfortable because it got the wind and breeze every time the door opened. I had to ask twice to change tables. After that, life was great at Blue Smoke and I went back for lunch the next day.
I booked this place for my boyfriends birthday, we had seen blue smoke advertised through Facebook and it ticked all the boxes for my fella.
I separately emailed the blue smoke as what we had seen advertised “the whole pit” was not on the lunch time menu.
They couldn’t have done enough for us. I was so pleased from beginning to end! And the food did not disappoint!
A Sunday afternoon brought us in. A reservation wasn’t really required the place was essentially empty. The Brunch menu is diverse enough with offerings from sweet to savory.
The service was largely inattentive. We were hungry ordered drinks and an appetizer. The drinks took an inordinate amount of time to arrive and the appetizer was completely lost. The entrees were served by someone other than our server and there was no indication the appetizer was on its way. There was no check in while our server made her way about the restaurant doing side work and chatting with her colleagues. We were offered dessert but we had to be somewhere by a certain time so we couldn’t risk it. While the check was accurate, we were met with an issue with our payment. It was a chipped card that works with chip and pin. It was declined. Offered up another card and after signing we were left to slip out unacknowledged.
Overall a meh experience. Not the place I remember dining before. There are better restaurants nearby that are more conducive to Service and food quality.
We had a delicious and very tasty meal with friends visiting from Memphis - where they know BBQ! Our friends stated that the BBQ meal “was FABULOUS” The waiter Ben was very professional, insightful and just pleasant to talk to. This place is a great Battery Park City gem!
We came from Idaho and when we said to people in New York we were going to Blue Smoke they all said it was good food. We weren't disappointed! Was a good atmosphere and was walking distance to activities we were doing. Ribs, biscuits, mac and cheese were all great. We would go back or recommend for sure.
I have a friend who used to work in the kitchen who always spoke very highly of the restaurant and its’ food. I saw an ad on Facebook about Blue Smoke and immediately decided I had to go and try the food, and went that very same day - Needless to say I was not disappointed and will be returning...very soon.
The food was 10, the service was 10, the ambience was 10, the drinks were refreshing but a little on the weak side.
