I love their selection, freshness and sake menu. The sides, salads and other menu items have always made me happy. I know there are the Yasuda lovers, but I enjoy BR the most. Service can be spotty, but last time I went I had an excellent, attentive and friendly server. Overall, the best, IMHO.

Welcoming staff, very attentive. We were impressed and excited upon arrival as the hostess was very accommodating and we had heard great things. Sadly the food left something to be desired - especially for the price (yes it's in SOHO, but at 2-3x prices one would expect to be surprised). The acclaimed Miso made us miss San Francisco and the... More

We went there for dinner and my husband has been craving for their lobster so we made a trip there. This place is very accommodating to our seating requirements. The food was so good. We ate sushi from so many places and you really can tell the different that this place has a standard. Servers were very very attentive and... More

We like sushi and sashimi, anytime we can we look for a place where to go, this time we went here twice as fish was gorgeous, and the way was prepared was unique! I'll recommend, reservation is mandatory but not accepted for couples.

We may have chosen the wrong evening to dine here, but I definitely was underwhelmed by my dining experience here in spite of all the good reviews. The Good: The restaurant has a chic pleasant ambience, and in spite of having no reservation on a packed evening, we only waited 20 minutes for a seat at the sushi bar which... More

Fantastic sushi in a pleasant atmosphere. Always busy so prepare to wait for a table. Very pricey but the food tastes amazing especially the mackerel as they fry the bones and skin after the sushi

I've never had a bad experience at Blue Ribbon, including the one in Vegas. The sashimi is fresh and the atmosphere is laid back and comfortable. We've never had to wait for a table and the service is always excellent. Get the fried chicken. I know it sounds weird, ordering friend chicken at a sushi place, but it is yummy,... More

This is some of the most fresh sushi and aha I have had in my life and don't even know where to start. This place is not cheap but it is worth every penny and the long wait for a table. Their sashimi is unbelievably good and it just melts in your mouth! I came here on a date and... More

What to say that hasn't been said? What to review on that has already been reviewed on? Blue Ribbon sushi is one of the best sushi places I have ever been to and that includes countless trips to Japan. Great atmosphere, great food, and great service. It is expensive however, but that is to be expected due to location and... More
