What Insiders Are Saying
The original Blue Ribbon in Soho, in which you can eat bone marrow, fried chicken, and oysters from a white table cloth at 3am. What a world.
I visit NYC from Tokyo once in a while as a business trip.
And I love this place since 1998...for more than 20yrs!
I will visit again on next trip for sure.
It’s always satisfying to dine at Blue Ribbon Brasserie. And especially so this time when we had a minor issue and were treated so graciously by the host, Dan.
Phenomenal meal, cozy date night spot...it was my bday celebration dinner, and it did not disappoint. Loved the Blue Ribbon experience!
Blue Ribbon was excellent! We enjoyed everything about it and the service was wonderful! Will definitely be back!
The food and service was great. Can't wait to dine there again.
Amazing food - In particular, i would highly recommend spicy seafood soup - and outstanding service. Great place!
NYC and Soho to a tee....we went twice .Manager was really helpful. Definitely go when in Soho!
The noise level is pretty high. Luckily we had a booth so we could carry on a conversation. Will definitely be back
Never disappoints. Great food and great service. A classic.
Just plain solid meal. Great dinner date place for excellent American fare with eclectic menu that will handle all tastes. Had oysters, steak tartare, soft shell crab special, friend chicken and Salmon. All great choices with excellent attentive staff.
Excellent food and service! It was a fun bustling NYC restaurant in a great neighborhood.
I was here last night with my grandmother and father, it was an amazing experience.
We ordered seafood and it was absolutely delicious.
The service is exceptional.
A true New York restaurant experience!
Amazing . Every thing was perfect
The Chet Baker play list was the highest point. Everything else was good. Nothing was great including the fondue, the leeks vinagrette, the onion soup or the room itself.
Blue Ribbon is outstanding. In its 27th year it has not missed a beat. The staff are down to earth and exceptionally attentive and the food is orgasmic!
For business traveler like me, NY time is opposite of TYO time. It means HUNGRY AT MIDNIGHT. So...for me, BR is one and only.
No, I will come often if I’m living in NYC.
More than price for every dish.
Great hospitality that makes me wonder “is this America?”...lol
Anyway, no other restaurant required for me in NYC.
Outstanding experience every single time. I loved the fresh oysters and all of my dishes. Exceptional fried chicken dish like no other. Beyond compare.
I go to ‘BR’ somewhat regularly, not JUST for special occasion. You can always count on the the food from the diverse menu to be delicious. Wait staff is attentive without being intrusive. Waiter was helpful with vegan options for one member of our party and concerned for another with allergies. Simply, BR is a favorite.
Fast and friendly service. Great dishes and fantastic cocktails.
Come here couple times,everytime we are happy and enjoy the food and drinks. It's our local spot for sure.
Amazing anniversary dinner- staff was wonderful!
THE BEST RESTAURANT in Nyc...amazing food, amazing service...such an institution
It's been around for a years but still is one of the gems of the city. Very good food served attentively and we'll paced. And no corkage fee.
Place to return to again and again.
the food was good, excellent selection, great ambiance, good wait staff
Service prompt and courteous. Food great value. Reminded me of a warm, friendly neighbourhood restaurant, similar to something I’d find at home in Vancouver, BC. Hipster vibe.
Blue Ribbon Brasserie never fails to please. Excellent comfort food, great service, and warm ambiance make this one of my regular restaurants in the West Village.
Cocktails were good. Food was not. Service was good. I wish we had gone somewhere else
Restaurant felt overly crowded— not comfortable seating space. This led to a noisy experience. Yet, we loved our meal— delicious and creative. Service was outstanding.
Bone marrow w/ oxtail marmalade is terrific! Staff is very friendly and efficient. Dining area is small but it feels intimate rather than congested.
The food is so bland and I was reading rave reviews about this restaurant that I was looking forward to it. It was quite a disappointment. I would never recommend it. I was with a friend and one of the employees there was interacting with my friend and asking for feedback and behaving as if I was not even at the table whatsoever. My friend is a Russian and I am of mixed background. I did find his behavior disrespectful and even when I looked on he seemed quite oblivious to his behavior at the table. They offered free dessert and even that did not appeal to me at all. I'd never go there again not worth all the hype.
Only one real sour note. The manager was talking casually to some guests he clearly knew as regulars when I arrived and he looked at me, said hello and went right back to talking to them with his back turned to me, which seemed quite dismissive. Otherwise, our server was attentive but not too attentive, floor manager checked in on our satisfaction when my companion didn’t finish her entire meal. Great job.
Always really really good food in a really great environment with excellent service.
Blue Ribbon Brasserie is one of our favorite restaurants. From the bartender who always greats us and everyone so friendly and with the best drinks to the food and fun atmosphere. Love coming and not feeling rushed and the late night atmosphere keeping the place busy well in to the late hours.
Not bad. Not great. Seems like after all these years some of the magic has leaked out of the bottle. I wouldn’t say don’t go but I wouldn’t say you must go either.
Never disappoints. Love anything Blue Ribbon does 🥰
The food was great. Music was a little loud but overall a great experience and we will be returning soon.
We've been to Blue Ribbon several times, and each time we are blown away by the incredible service, the delicious food, and friendliness of the staff. We went for our anniversary last week, and yet again, they hit it out of the ballpark. We will be back ASAP, and happy to recommend this lovely restaurant!
The best...amazing food served with great attitude
Every time we visit NYC this is a must stop! They never disappoint! The food is fantastic!
Food was delicious and the atmosphere was great. Everyone was pleased with their meals.
