    I've been wanting to try The Ribbon for awhile and we finally was able to grab dinner here on a Friday night. Making reservations is highly recommended because it was pretty crowded. We only had a short wait, but we arrived a few minutes earlier than our reservation, so that made complete sense. We selected items from the Restaurant Week menu and then added on drinks. Everything was clean (including the restroom), the waiter, hosts and wait staff were friendly and the food was good. Some items I liked more than others, but that was just personal preference. I would definitely return and try other menu items.

    Got brunch here and literally enjoyed every aspect of it. We got the prime rib poutine which, on its own, is enough of a reason to visit. Our server was also great!

    The food was insanely expensive for what it was. I got the fried chicken sandwich for $25 and it was mostly breading and it was bland. Despite everyone ordering entrees and some of us ordering sides, we all left still a little hungry. I would come back for the drinks because that was good, but the food was not worth it at all. The server was really nice and the place was beautiful.

    My girlfriend and I really enjoyed The Ribbon. We had never been but were curious. We had great attentive service. The waiter made recommendations that were spot on. I enjoyed a nicely made cocktail called The Franconia. Our appetizers of fried oyster deviled eggs, or as they call them Dressed Eggs, were spectacular. The pickled jalapenõs added a nice pop of flavor. Our butter lettuce salads were good. They just needed a bit more dressing, which our waiter provided on request. My girlfriend loved the Moulard Duck Confit. I had the Ribbon Steak (hanger steak) with shoestring fries. The meat was cooked to perfection and the fries were some of the best shoestring fries I've ever had! Crispy and plentiful. We finished the evening with delicious sticky toffee pudding. While the meal was a bit pricey we will definitely be back!

    The front room is always very noisy so we asked to be moved to the main dining room. I was told I should have requested it on my reservation (even thought the back room was almost empty) There were only 3 or four tables yet out server forgot to bring the bread we requested, then forgot to bring the side dish with the main course. Hadn't been there in a while, not so great.

    Very busy when arrived for reservation on time, asked to stand to side to wait for table, stood there for 10 minutes until seated. 30 minutes later I went to bar to get drinks as no server attended table. When they did, was told that need to order quickly or he would have to go to another table, so we ordered quickly as didn’t want to wait another half hour! Didn’t get asked if we wanted any further drinks in the meantime, so again went to the bar, walked past manager on the way and enquired if they were short staffed, he confirmed and apologised and offered a free round of drinks to our table. Our food arrived and 20 minutes had passed so i enquired where our drinks were and again manager apologised saying the bartender had lost the ticket. The drinks arrived after we had finished the meal. The place is nice, the food good if pricey, but the service was shocking and other than the manager not very friendly. Not sure if they were understaffed, as when we left around 9, the place had emptied and staff were sat around chatting. It was a shame, as this would have been a really nice way to finish our family Xmas day in the city.

    The Ribbon was much more pub-like than I'd expected from the website. That said, the dark wood, hipster lighting, and mix of high and low tables created a cozy atmosphere. Our server and food runners were attentive in a good way (i.e. got us replacement forks when needed, but didn't hover). The food was solid but not wildly inventive, besides the truffle fries, which were excellent! The grilled avocado was disappointingly plain in presentation and taste, aside from the pickled crema. The three of us were pleased with our entrees (black bean burger, vegetable risotto, and Scottish salmon) and the beer selection. Our total with tip came to around $50/person, which is reasonable given the particular hour (we came here for dinner on Christmas) and the location (right by Central Park). That said, I've eaten tastier food for less elsewhere. Overall, recommended if you're looking for upscale pub atmosphere within a short walk of Lincoln Center or Central Park.

    There was something VERY wrong the night we went (Christmas Day.) We waited 25 minutes to get seated although we arrived exactly on time. Once seated, we were asked about drinks about 5-10 minutes after being seated - totally fine. Then we waited about 40 more minutes to put in our dinner order. Food came out VERY slowly. It was not our waiter's fault. We could tell they were extremely short staffed and he was asked to cover other sections. In fact, I didn't see another waiter at all - just rood runners. I had to remind the food runner that we needed silverware with our food, because none was brought with the food, including no knife for the prime rib special we ordered. Overall, our reservation was for 6 pm and we couldn't leave (without paying the check) until about 8:45 pm. It feels horrible to leave a bad review for the hard working folks on Christmas. At the same time, it was also supposed to be our special Christmas dinner and there were other restaurant options. I chose The Ribbon because they seemed like a cool alternative. I do regret the choice.

    5 of us gathered for Christmas lunch. The food was very good - in some cases, exceptional - but the service was very poor. Our server was welcoming and knowedgable, but she literally would disappear for what seemed like minutes at a time. In all fairness, the restaurant was busy and it was Christmas, but the lack of attentive service put a damper on our overall experience. Another thing: 2 guests ordered Prosecco which is traditionally served in a champagne flute. However, the server brought them in regular wine glasses. When asked why, she said there is more of the beverage in a wine glass than in a flute. Although she said she opened a fresh bottle of Prosecco, both guests found it impalatable and exchanged their drinks for wine. Despite these glitches, since I liked the atmosphere of the restaurant and appreciated the quality of the food, I would therefore recommend it as a good place to eat.

    We wanted something kid friendly for our 11 &9 yo boys but also nothing touristy so we left our hotel near Grand Central and took an Uber here based on online reviews and really enjoyed it! The atmosphere was cozy and nice but not over the top, we had a wonderful waiter who was a vocal major in college and took exceptional care of us. All the food was great and we really enjoyed our experience.
