Very good burger
Very noisy: hard to hear our group’s conversation
Waiter was totally bizarre: borderline rude
Not sure if I’d go back

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.

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.

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.

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.

The ambiance is sleek with low lighting and moderate level music. Food is absolutely on point! Ive been before for brunches, but this was the first time for dinner. Everything was outstanding. Deviled eggs, BBQ ribs for apps. Oxtail burger & Pork sandwich for entrees. All was phenomenal!

We were there in the early afternoon, prior to the Sox v Yankees game, and it was quiet and the service was excellent. 4 adults and 2 kids, all enjoyed the food and the setting. I would recommend this restaurant but did find the appetizers to be a bit expensive.

We went for lunch celebrating a friends birthday.. The waiter was curt and rude. The runner or manager (not sure which) saved the day. Hope we don’t have to see that waiter at our next visit.

This was a favorite restaurant of ours, right around the corner from home, and have been there more than a dozen times. This experience wasn't a good one. First they tried to seat us next to a large table with an infant immediately next to us, way past her bed time. Then they reluctantly agreed to move us to one of the many open tables available at the time. But the tables are so close together, and the restaurant on this night was so loud, that it wasn't an enjoyable experience, as it was hard not to hear, and be heard by, the people next to us. Prime Rib at $61 is in the midtown steak house price range, but nothing about this restaurant deserves it any longer. We were rushed in and out - the main course came before the bread that I requested. Water glasses went unfilled, and I felt rushed and was out of there in about 45 minutes. Finally, I left my credit card (get rid of the books please!) and at first they couldn't find it when I called, and then they did, but nobody could be bothered to look me up on Open Table to send me a text, email or call.

We had then French dip and Roasted Meat Salad both were delish. Also good sized potions. A bit noisy but otherwise a nice ambience. Heavy dark wood and low lighting create a nice mood.

Basically we loved our meal at The Ribbon. Service was superb, the food delicious, tough priced
on the high side. The restaurant wasn't crowded, which was good. The only problem was that there
was a birthday party going on with about 15 teenage girls. They were well-behaved for the most
part and the restauant was most accommodating in moving us, but still it was somewhat noisy, but
still we loved our meal mostly because the staff was so good!

Menu was a bit unusual I’m not sure what genre they are shooting for-however food was really good we thought it was expensive even for Manhattan- $139 for lunch for 2 on a Wednesday is hefty. Did include 3 wines and a dessert-but a salad, a side and an appetizer- seemed a lot.
