This is a great spot on the UWS. Great chicken! Unfortunately the service on this night was spotty at best, but our waiter realized this and took about $50 off our bill to compensate. That is great situational awareness and was appreciated so we’ll go back for sure.

I’ve come here numerous times and I’ve never had a bad drink or a bad dinner. They have the best cheese and charcuterie platter. It’s not cheap but the quality of the food is really good and they don’t use cheap fillers like a lot of other places do. I’ll keep coming back

Some of the best comfort food on the West Side. Always reliable. The white bean soup is so good it’s almost a meal in itself.

Our waiter was very patient with our slow ordering, and members of the party arriving a little late. Food was good, portions large. We were there for lunch/brunch on Saturday. It's a big space, and family friendly (space for strollers). There was a very posh 12 yr old's birthday party happening there that was nicer than my wedding, but that's the UWS for you! Its a little noisy, but that's to be expected. I've been there a few times, and will return. Perfect for a walk in the park afterward.

Waiter was on point but there was some serious delays in getting our drinks and additional food. Waiter compensated for this. Pulled pork hamburger was NOT pulled pork but rather pork slices-somewhat disappointing. Deviled eggs were great. Super loud venue. Be prepared.

Nice vibe, really nice bar/sports bar area with communal tables. The location is great.
But once at table, service was very spotty- being served either too often ie rushed or not often enough ie ignored. Even at front desk we were somewhat ignored and had to ask to have our coats checked
The food was OK. Some things were better than others.
all in all disappointing

We had friends in town from Australia and there was no question where we should go. Mutual friends were joining us and the 6 of us enjoyed another superb meal at the Ribbon. My one friend grudgingly heads up town when he has to but maintains that the salmon at the Ribbon is the best he has ever eaten. We adore the buffalo cauliflower. I am obsessed with the Prime Rib. In fact, you just cannot go wrong. The best food.

The menu at Ribbon is eclectic and appealing; the food is fresh, interesting, and well-presented. Some items are vastly overpriced (e.g. the deviled eggs$, but our only complaint is the spotty service. Our waiter was inattentive - got our drinks and dinner order ‘sides’ wrong. Ditto, the table next to ours.

The drinks are always strong and delicious. The food will never be a let-down. I’ve previously only sat and ate at the bar and service was stellar, food came out quickly. This past visit, with the reservation we sat at a table. The service was pretty slow and I was surprised how long we were left without drinks and how long the food took to be prepared. But- this is probably just a blip in their record.

Roasted beef marrow was delicious but portion was precious. Food was great overall but it felt pricey for what you are getting, even by New York standards. Nice place for a casual meal or sit at the bar and watch sports on TV while having a drink.

The Ribbon never disappoints. From the incredible fried chicken to one of the best pieces of bronzino in town the food is excellent. And the bartenders really know how to make a dark expresso martini, which is unique in and of itself. Love this place and glad we have it in the neighborhood.

We absolutely love this restaurant! It is casual but at same time their food are top notch!
And we eat out so much for both business and pleasure all over the world. Also we own restaurants so we are very particular.
Also we went there for Christmas dinner. Most of New York restaurants they make up holiday menus but the Ribbon has same menu.
