    We found The Blue Dog through a google search to find something close to Radio City. What a find. The food was delicious and the staff friendly and kid-accommodating. Highly recommend!

    The food was honestly a little bland and sides came out cold. Service was just okay and didn’t check in with us about our food until after we were finished eating. Disappointing for the price point.

    My mom and I had a wonderful time here! We had to modify our reservation time a bit because our train was late, and they had no problem changing it. Although much smaller than I thought it would be, The Blue Dog was quite cozy. The cocktails were delicious and the food was absolutely outstanding. Service was wonderful. 10/10. We will be back!

    I was pretty disappointed by this place. My French toast tasted like burnt breadcrumbs, no real flavor. The syrup was so thick and congealed that it looked like you could cut it with scissors. The chai latte was just milk with a hint of cinnamon (for 8$!). I spent a lot of money and left hungry. Tables are all very close, not much privacy at all.

    I was in New York with friends to see a play. Prior to our arrival, I searched for restaurants near the theatre. The Blue Dog came up in the search. It had good reviews and presented a nice menu. What a great choice! The service was prompt, our server was friendly and most importantly, the food did not disappoint. I highly recommend The Blue Dog to diners of all ages.

    Enjoyed a great meal at The Blue Dog Cookhouse. Food was delicious and the wait staff were friendly and professional. The tables are a little small (as is the restaurant) and it was a little hot inside (could be do to an unseasonably warm fall day) but overall would go back again.

    We enjoyed a dinner at Blue Dog Cookhouse before heading to a show. The restaurant is tiny but the atmosphere is cozy and upscale. We had burgers and truffle fries that were delicious! We were warned at the beginning of dinner of the 70 minute limit which was enforced despite there being empty tables around us. Overall we would recommend this as a fun spot with good food!

    The restaurant is too cramped. I would suggest sitting outside. Several members of the staff were wearing too much perfume/cologne. It was overwhelming when they walked by. Our server was very busy and not attentive.
