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!

Wonderful Octoberfest pork special for two for $49. Front of restaurant is loud, but we asked for a quiet table and got one in the back of restaurant. We will return.

The food was good , but starting from the moment we walked in , the host and the servers were not very helpful and professional . They really have to improve on the service .

Very much enjoyed the entire experience. Classic American fare with a few interesting international twists. Great atmosphere, if a bit noisy. Friendly staff.

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.

Just plain bad service. You want a drink? Bring a flag to wave! Pricing is high, food so so and service is dinner style

Not cool for the UWS

Cool space but Poor service. Had to chase down server for any water, etc.
Food ok. Baked eggs were not baked, rather 2 poached eggs dropped on top of the sauce.
Over priced

There's a great treat here during happy hour. Their special includes yummy oysters and shrimp cocktail, and the drinks are just as delicious.
Staff is friendly and know the menu very well and their suggestions for our dinner was delicious, the short ribs and lobster and shrimp curry.

My husband and I have been coming to The Ribbon for a few years on date night. Wr love the Marrow appetizer, the fried chicken and fried chicke. Sandwich are to die for and cocktails are delish. Great HH as well. We will continue to come as part of our traditions.

This was our second visit. The decor and ambiance are very nice and the service is very friendly and attentive. The food and drinks are very expensive not that good , though. Our party ordered the flatbread which was good, the chips, roasted chicken which was almost flavorless and had a mushy texture, a French dip which did not taste fresh,and a $43 steak which was ok, not great. We also were celebrating a birthday, and the waiter was very sweet to put a candle in our dessert, but it was just silently placed on the table without a word. Did not feel festive.

The food we ate was good. Our service was decent, but for the amount we paid...take it or leave it. I also made specific notes in my OpenTable reservation that it was my husbands birthday and no effort was made to acknowledge it. I saw other tables with birthday treats.

Grain bowl salads are a terrific lunchtime option, and the green goddress dressing is fantastic. Fried chicken is simply among the best in town. Disappointing item at this most recent lunch: the breakfast sandwich was not up to par with the rest of the offerings.

Great spot - just a stone's throw from Strawberry Fields in Central Park. Food was good for sure; however, $20 for a cheeseburger is pricey even in NYC.

The food and drinks were excellent. The gentleman who refilled our water and cleared the table was wonderful. We saw our server Micheal 3 times. Once to take our drink order. Once for our food order and once to let us know after we had finished our food that his shift was over and another server would be taking over. Then we watched him leave through the kitchen in his workout clothes. Our new server dropped off the dessert menu and disappeared for 20 minutes. This was 7:30 on a Saturday night. We’ve never been so conflicted about an experience. While the food was great, the service was abysmal.
