Food was terrific, perfect for Sunday brunch. The fried chicken sandwich was terrific. Service was great, many great options on the menu, and comfortable ambiance. Only negative is it's fairly expensive for a relatively casual dining spot.

I have been to the Ribbon UWS several times and was disappointed with this visit. We were seated at a table up against the wall...very cramped. The server was not very helpful regarding my non- gluten and non- dairy needs. My companion was delivered the wrong and then the wrong the sandwich. She was told there was no whipped cream, when it was very obvious that other diners were served it. I hope this was just an off day.

I love The Ribbon for breakfast and lunch and we go all the time. Breakfast was mediocre at best and our server was also mediocre. I was disappointed because I would put it as one of my favorite places and do having such a disappointing breakfast was completely disappointing.

Had a pretty much perfect slab of prime rib, and they know how to pour a proper cocktail.

Second time at your place, both experiences were positive. On my last visit, brunch on a Sunday, two things took us back a bit. The breakfast sandwich and the baked eggs. With the breakfast sandwich, the way it reads on the menu is not what is expected when it arrives. When it arrived, it was more of a burger style. It reads more like a sandwich, like a club style, fresh and assembled. The baked eggs were odd. It was a stew like and very dry with two eggs on top, not necessary baked into the dish. It was very hearty and did not compliment the delicate eggs well. Don't get me wrong, the food was delicious and we enjoyed it. We were just confused when the food arrived. For the breakfast sandwich, there was another guest at the bar that we observed, she reacted the same way we did.

We just had brunch at The Ribbon. The atmosphere was very welcoming and roomy, a nice change for the usually tightly packed Manhattan restaurants. I had the cheddar chive pancakes with fried chicken on top. It was delicious and a nice combination of their hot sauce with the sweet maple syrup. This was a very creative dish! Other egg dishes looked really nice! Our server could have been a little more attentive but she was pleasant enough. All in all, a fine restaurant that we will try again!!

We had a great table in the front window, we did have trouble reading the menu in the dark corner & had to wait for a while before we ordered a drink. Food was excellent ! Great location for my out of town guests !!

Large space is noisy in the front, but more human noise level in the back. Service was attentive up through getting food and one check after being served. Took a while to find waiter for check at end. Menu is varied and imaginative and food hearty and delicious.

Chose the Ribbon for a special visit from a out of town friend. Very disappointed with service. Just couldn’t seem to get the attention of our server when we needed him. It was not the usual good service. Maybe just a one off?

Service experience from the front door to our waiter was very good , especially at the table after telling our waiter that we had a show to catch and that we were short on time .
Food was outstanding!

Went at lunch for the raw bar. Only a few people there so very quiet. At dinner, it's very noisy to be aware. Anyway, clams and oysters were very good.
