It has been a few years since I lived in Manhattan, but when I did Blue Ribbon was the best sushi restaurant in NYC. I recently returned and tried Blue Ribbon again. Still excellent after all these years. I can't say that it's the best sushi restaurant, since I have not lived in NYC for a while and am not... More

I go to an old friends Soho loft for gatherings a few times each year. They cater these events with different foods including various kinds of Sushi which they get from here. Always good.

I've been advised to try The Blue Ribbon Sushi by a local colleague. It is a perfect retreat while strolling around SoHo. Sullivan is a small street and the restaurant in not super easy to find, but once you are inside, you step into Japan. You are welcomed from the staff, the fish bar is a delight and the overall...

Its good don't get me wrong but for NYC its an average establishment I'm afraid! The quality is absolutely there, the environment is basic and not conducive with prices

Very professional. dined for lunch on the sushi bar. Service fast and professional. Sushi and sashimi very nice. Nothing insane but good value for the money.

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
