This place … great little find. Coming from Miami wasn't sure what to expect when we first arrived … we had awesome service with awesome food. My favorite item hands down was the fried oysters. I like that the calamari wasn't breaded like some places I must admit it was weird at first but it's def the healthier option. Our... More

I had heard good things but I would say my experience was mixed. The ambiance was nice, the room was comfortable, the staff was just right. Actually a great little place. Unfortunately none of the food rose above the ordinary at best.

After our show, we dined in this late night spot. Charming. Small venue, dark and cozy. We really liked it. Good menu for us. We shared a burger and fries. Just perfect for us at that time. Good bottle of wine and a nice time.

In NY for business and went here on a recommendation. Great atmosphere - just like a favourite brasserie in Paris except the service here was polite and helpful (unlike Parisians!) with thought through recommendations tailored to their take on me. I had the trout followed by a sorbet - just what I wanted for a light supper - the fish... More

We were able to walk in without a reservation. The place is quite small but has an nice feel and atmosphere. My husband had a great steak and I have the fried chicken with mash potato, gravy and honey, delicious.

The following is why this restaurant will always be great: It is nice to wait at the bar, the bartender is a very serious man who pays attention, and not too much attention. The host is cool, nice, and friendly, but not too friendly. The food is really good. The waiter knew his wines. And the last two bottles of... More

The Blue Ribbon is great for late-night dining. It was packed at 1:00am and the waiting line was out the front door. We had a very short wait for a table. We heard they have delicious fried chicken & we were not disappointed. Blue Ribbon's fried chicken is the best! We had a longer wait for our food to come... More

I think this is a place to visit when in NY. They stay open from 4pm to 4am I think. Great cocktails, great service, tasty food. I see that a lot of people only had appetizers which I can recommended because that's what we thought tasted best from what we tried. They are also big in portion. Prices are just... More

We ate at the Blue Ribbon with colleagues. The New York strip was well cooked and tasty, however the trout was greasy and ruined the flavour of what was a very good piece of fish. Service was fine, the food was probably a little expensive for what it was.
