    We did enjoy ourselves but felt the service was slow. We waited a long time for drink orders to be taken and a long time for food. But when we received the food, it was good! We will be back.

    We go here relatively often since it’s so close to the Beacon Theatre. Food is always good but don’t bother ordering the Caesar salad — it looked and tasted like something from a hospital cafeteria. I was quite surprised and disappointed. Everything else was very good.

    Went for lunch on a nice sunny Sunday after a walk in Central Park. The place was empty, which was surprising from what I've heard about it. Food was good pub food, no surprises or disappointments there. Good fried chicken, good burger.

    This was my first visit to your restaurant. We met a friend from out of town. The cocktails were fabulous! We sat outside and the ambiance was lovely. The big glass folding doors that were open made us feel like we were inside but not at the same time. I have to do dairy and egg free, my husband has to do gluten and soy free. We had no problem finding things on the menu that worked and modifications were offered easily. I look forward to coming back!

    Ribbon has a nice, diverse menu sure to please most diners. We loved the salmon special --- cooked just right (med rare) and shared a salad to start. The wine selection is broad and well thought out. The ambience was a bit too loud, but it was Friday night. An enjoyable time - will be back.

    We went to celebrate a birthday with family and were very pleased we did. It was a Sunday evening and it was very quiet. The food is great - we love the cauliflower appetizer and also enjoyed the Caesar salad and truffle fries. The fried chicken is a must, and we also had a great pasta, swordfish and burger. And desserts are definitely worth staying for! And the staff did a great job making our birthday girl feel special!

    Happy Hour is great here! The waitstaff and bar tender are very friendly and attentive. I tried devil eggs with smoked salmon - very fresh and light, great flavors. I also had the cheese tray, wish I could've had a choice in cheese for it but was great. The mac n cheese fritters came out gooey and hot, just as a fried item should. The ambience was quiet but I was there beginning of Happy Hour on a Monday, but I enjoyed meeting my friend and being able to hear ourselves talk without shouting over the music. The manager is new here and trying to bring a good experience. I can tell they care about their employees just based on interactions I saw. Go in here also for dessert - we had 3 different and they were all fantastic. The chocolate chip bread pudding thing was my favorite, but I am a chocolate person.

    Average (at best) food, our brunch server was either very hungover or still drunk-never asked how our meal was, if we wanted another drink (which i did), needed anything… (and we were his only table-this was not an understaffing issue) Only good note was a very yummy cocktail. Otherwise skip this one. With so many great brunch options in NYC, we were so disappointed to waste a meal here.

    Menu looked much better than the food. Lackluster and uninteresting. Who serves pancakes without butter? Iced Tea had so much Ice in a small glass that it was finished in two sips. Many better choices on the UWS.
