The ambience was great, service was terrific and portions enormous. Meatball & cauliflower apps were great. Cod, Cavatelli pasta delicious as was the Halibut special and chicken. The spicy margarita was the best.

Took my wife here for her Birthday, which I mentioned in the OpenTable app, but I assume this information never got to Ribbon.
The Food was mediocre and extremely overpriced. Ordered chicken liver mousse, shrimp cocktail, the Oxtail burger, and their regular burger, and rosé. 2.5 out of 5 on everything. Very disappointing for $150.

Waiter was the best one I have had at the restaurant. Sat in the front, which can be noisy but not a bad bet with soooo many little children who now seem to run all over the back room. Love the food!

Unrefined, somewhat strange dining experience. Service vacillated between hovering - 5 servers and bussers aggressively and repeatedly trying to clear our table - and negligent with no one coming over for 30 minutes at a time or more; as a result, the entire meal took 3.5 hours. On top of that, the food was just okay food, environs were crowded and noisy with waitstaff chaotically tripping over and bumping into you when you’d get up to use the restroom. Moreover, the Ribbon didn’t even honor my opentable res, saying that I had cancelled. Needs refining.

Delicious food, good service, really nice atmosphere - lively but not too loud - and not super expensive. My burger was wonderful, really medium rare and juicy (lately at other restaurants medium rare has been barely pink.) Try the beet and goat cheese salad, yummy. The kitchen will split dishes in the kitchen if you ask, if you're sharing. My new neighborhood fave!

Just make sure you are going here for the right thing..It is VERY loud and has a pub feel which we were not looking for. Seating is tight and the food is okay. If you are looking for a spot to watch a game, make sure you sit in front where the TVs are. Would go back for a lunch but not dinner...

wow! the food here is creative and inventive wiouth being overly pretenious or trying too hard. Everything is delicious and well prepared . the food portions are large enough to share , flavorful and beautifully plated. The wait staff and hosting are top notch! We shared everything and they split it for us in the kitchen and served us individually. We had the red snapper with lobster brown butter in veggies provencal and it rocked ! The duck appy was moist and full of flavor. ALL of the desserts are so full of flavor and well presented! Absolute gem! The place is small but oh so cozy and felt like an intimate dining experience! total 10+

The food was mediocre at best: special Sunday fried chicken breast was dry & tasteless, the deviled egg at $7 was basically a hardboiled egg with some relish on top, the meat in the butcher salad was tasteless and the salad undistinguished. The hostesses were good and the wait staff too, tho the latter a bit hard to locate in between their coming to our table. There was also a wait for the drinks which may be why they were no longer cold when they were delivered. This restaurant is an example of why many people consider the Lincoln Center area a food desert. None of us plan to return.

Love the restaurant however way too many small children all over. They really should be in one location. Tough when you are trying to have a conversation at dinner and children are crying or running everywhere. Been there so I know that it is hard but other dinners should not have to suffer.

From the start, our waiter was snarky, and he got worse. he brought two incorrect orders and essentially said it was our fault, not his. Although his station was right next to us, he ignored requests to take back an incorrect order, and a manager stepped in and did it.
And, to top it all off, he gave us someone else's bill. Awful...and the food didn't remind me of Blue Ribbon standards at all

We were seated at a small table wedged in between two other tables. Although there were larger, more comfortable tables available, we were told they were reserved. We had a reservation, but obviously, our reservation only applied to small, uncomfortable tables.
The food was delicious and the drinks were fine. Our service was quite slow even though the restaurant was not full. I would go again if I am in the area just to see if I have a better experience as the food was good.

Visited for the first time last year for a business dinner. Since then, this has become a favorite when attending concerts in Lincoln Center. Arrived early on Saturday evening to a nearly-empty setting; but by 7:30 the place was rocking. On this visit, we opted for smaller plates, more pub food than anything particularly inventive. Although the buffalo-style cauliflower was something not seen elsewhere. Always enjoy the experience here and look forward to working through the menu on future visits. Saw people eating fried chicken -- looked wonderful. Also saw people eating the day's special cheese fondue. Had a dessert this time -- some kind of tres leches espresso thing. Very large (perfect for 2 to share) and very satisfying. And one more thing -- this restaurant's variation on the bowl of mints on your way out is old fashioned red fireballs. A happy ending. Look forward to returning again.
