Catfish! – Your food selection is fantastic! I have eaten here 4 or 5 times and have always enjoyed it. Street parking is a little tough, but this place is good. Anytime I mention Blue Ribbon, anyone who knows of it gives it accolades!
Your southern foods are really stick to the ribs good comfort food.
See you soon!
The worst experience ever. – Last night my wife and I went to Blue Ribbon in park slope. We arrived in New York 2 days ago and expected to have a nice bite and some easy ambience. A friend of mine, a Wall Street lawyer and a foodie recommended this spot. We weren't looking for the best food or service just a decent place for a pregnant woman and her husband.
We set at the bar, our favorite spot and I ordered beer from "Adam" that was quite friendly ; Then we ordered food.
We wanted to start with some appetizers before checking on the king crab as Adam recommended.
The beetroot salad was flavorless and had 3 cubes of tomato on top. The asparagus were blanched (cooked) probably at the same time we landed at JFK and the ribs, a plastic like dry pieces marinated and braised in an artificial flavor sauce were simply bad.
The highlight of our night was a drunken guy named Brian. The village full of Blue ribbon in Brooklyn. Apparently this guy is a usual at the bar. He set next to us and started talking to my wife. We were friendly until he became rude and obnoxious. (Asking my wife what was she doing with an "ugly guy" referring to me). We tried to be polite and Adam tried to get rid of this guy and was apologizing repeatedly. When he failed to get rid of this drunken fool he sent us OUR CHECK as if he wanted us out. The manager that was at the end of the bar babbling with some waiters did nothing. We decided to take off leaving the free desert that was sent to us at the bar. Don't go there! The food is less than average and the bar is a neighborhood spot for older, aggressive drunk locals
One of my fav places! – This is the best fish restaurant in Brooklyn. Everything is always fresh and delicious. If they told me the wait would be 2 hours I really would not care, this is how good this place is. For years now it has always kept its good reputation unlike a lot of places when they get a good name they than go down hill. It is a bit expensive but you get what you pay for!
Manhattan in Park Slope – This place is fun and exciting. The bar is lively and a great place for a single to snatch a bite and chat up the locals. The Seafood is always fresh and the oysters are perfect. I always yearn for whelk season and run right over for my share.
The salt and pepper shrimp are a bit of work pealing and all, but worth the effort. The foie Gras with challah bread is a rich and savory dish.
Everything is BETTER in Brooklyn at Blue Ribbon!!! – I absolutely love love love love love this place. I don't waste my money getting food in the City anymore. I just go straight to Blue Ribbon because I always get great service, great food, great ambiance, just a wonderful experience every time I go back. Tonight will be my 5th time going back in the last 2 months.
Long waits but worth it. – We had made plans to have dinner at the Italian restaurant next door but they were closed for Labor Day weekend, so we stumbled into Blue Ribbon as it was the only other upscale place worthy of a birthday dinner. It was a Friday night and the hostess warned us of a 45 minute wait. However the bartender kept us occupied with a free drink and we were actually seated in 20 minutes. The food was inventive and delicious. My steak was cooked and seasoned perfectly. The service was great and our waiter was casual but informed.
Great Food but Poor Service – The food at Blue Ribbon was excellent. I would recommend anyone with a lot of time to spare to check out this place. My one disturbance was that it took too long to be served between each course. My guest and I thought we were being used to keep the restaurant looking pretty. Otherwise, it's a definite place to go to and definitely to go to again, again and again.
amazing service – I love this place. The food is amazing and the staff is so attentive and fast. My steak was cooked perfectly and the chocolate bruno was one of the best desserts I ever had. It very relaxing and they don't rush to leave after you finish your meal. My waiter Kevin was very knowledgeable and gave some great suggestions. I will going back soon.
All around on point – Blue Ribbons dinning experience is more than up to par. I began my dinner with their chicken wings, which were excellent, and seemed to be to be free range. As an entree I had their special "Steak w/ roasted peppers, peppered cheddar, and cornbread, along with their Sangiovese which proved by recommendation to match well. Although the dish was great I had asked for the steak medium and it had seemed to come medium well to well. I personally like that line of pink in the middle of my steak, as I often order medium rare. It's always nice to see how a kitchen puts out a steak. Don't get me wrong though I enjoyed it immensely. Following I indulged in their bread pudding which was ok, a little dry but the ice cream with it brought the dish together for a wonderful desert which I enjoyed with their Grahams 10yr Tawny and a shot of espresso. All in all I think Blue Ribbon is a great restraint with good food, a versatile menu and impeccable service. I'll say it again the service was over the top and as I looked around the restaurant it seemed to me that the rest of the guest were enjoying the experience. I'll have to return to try some of the other dishes in the future! Most definitely!
