I came here this morning for brunch and made a 10:45 am reservation just an hour in advance (a lucky grab!). Despite getting there on time, my boyfriend and I waited about 40 minutes for our food. Now, that is a long time, and we...were a little annoyed since we noticed a 5-person family who came in 15 minutes after us get their food before we did, but I chalked that up to how kids can get fussy and the staff probably wanting to avoid angry comments from them. Our waitress/hostess, Aleksandra, was clearly working so hard and was super swamped, constantly getting badgered by customers, yet she never once seemed exasperated when we asked questions about the menu. There was another male waiter, though I didn’t catch his name, who took care of us pretty quickly with everything we needed once our food got to us. Overall, the wait was really due to the Sunday brunch rush and having a small staff and many demanding customers! Therefore, I’d say: come here, but not if you’re in a rush. As for the food, I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a large non-alcoholic beverage menu for brunch, and I really appreciated that; they had so many amazing juices, smoothies, coffee drinks, iced teas—you will want for nothing when it comes to their beverages! Also, their brunch menu is large, varied, seasonal, and has some really cool stuff (I had the pumpkin brioche French toast, which I highly recommend). The place is a little pricey (we spent $80 for two people, pre-tip), so this place is a leisurely treat.More

Great location, Food & Cocktails! Met up with friends here and had a nice time catching up! It is small, so quarters were quite tight, but nicely appointed. The staff was very friendly. There's one long farm style table to share & smaller tables along...the sides. I would recommend Blue Dog Cookhouse in a minute, but would suggest trying to go at a low-peak time of day / evening.More

The place is small but cozy. The music is great and the staff is very kind. I came for the brunch and the food was amazing. Very delicious! The food was ready very fast as well. There is a huge table at the middle of...the restaurant, but my impression is the place is good for couples, small groups and single ones looking for a peaceful place to read a book, have a small talk while have a good meal.More

While visible from W50th the actual entrance is in the breezeway of the building. The service was fine. We had Bloody Mary's ( Mary Magdalen's) and two different takes on the Eggs Benedict. Both were very nice and the prices were moderate. While the room...is tight the ambiance is still pleasant . Worth a stop or two.More

My wife and I went to New York to get married.. we located this little cook house on the first night and decided to try it with a reservation. We were not disappointed. we both had a beer, I had a grapefruit beer. I had...the 'cheeses burger' with pepper jack cheese and my wife had a vegan burger. Wow, wow, wow... absolutely loved the food and the drink. The place in decorated with a vintage industrial look and feel, the staff are excellent and will do anything to ensure you enjoy your experience. Friends joined us in New York and we returned a second time on Saturday night - we had booked and were sat at the same table. It was very busy with locals, but we were well looked after with a round of complimentary cocktails due to our marriage. Cannot fault this place at all, it was amazing and we would go back every week if we lived in New York!! Thank you Blue Dog - you were awesome!!More

Another hidden gem which we actually at first thought was closed due to how you enter the place. A closed curtain stops you from seeing the cosy interior. Lovely staff, a gorgeous first breakfast in NYC. Kept us going all day. A big thumbs up

Blue Dog is a hidden gem in the heart of the city. From the food to the service, I couldn't ask for anything better. This is a great place for a date and would not recommend for large parties as this was a very tiny,...1 room place. Besides the space, our waitress, Melissa, could not have been any better. Her great attitude and overall personality, made you feel like relaxed and at home. Despite a little mishap, she was kind enough to give us a free round of drinks and a free dessert! Recommended Food: Apps - Friend Mac & Cheese Entree - We had the seafood pasta and a burger w/ salad (though all entrees looked amazing) Dessert - Lava cake We will most definitely be back here. Also it is a block away from the Wicked show. And reservations is a must (pretty easy to get one though)More

Overnight trip from Pennsylvania to NY to see a show (wife’s Christmas gift). My wife and I decided on the Blue Dog Cookhouse for our pre Hamilton show meal. Glad we did. We were seated early so no crowds to contend with. Staff were very...attentive. We ordered wine and a beer and had the Cob Salad and Cheesus Christ burger. Both were excellent and in nice sized portions. We highly recommend the Blue Dog and will definitely eat there again when we returnMore

Went here for breakfast due to reading the great reviews on here, and it didn't disappoint. I had the pumpkin and blueberry french toast, and it was delicious.

Most likely not, however it is not a large restaurant. We went on a Sunday for “Brunch” without a reservation and had no wait. We called first and they said just come in. Always good idea to call ahead.
