Best sushi in brooklyn – I love blue ribbon sushi!
It has great fresh fish, just as good as nobu.
The service is excellent, and nice ambience also.
The food is not "trendy" but it is the best sushi.
nobu who? – First off, this restaurant is on par with Nobu in Tribeca. We were seated immediately on a Thursday night at around 9 PM, which is outstanding in my book. However, we all noticed that the hostess was slightly peeved at a customer for requesting a table even though he was by himself. Save yourself the attitude and sit at the sushi bar if you're solo. We got a handful of appetizers including the Salmon Tartare, the soft shell crab roll, and the octopus sashimi. All were exemplary (especially the soft shell). The wine list is reasonably priced and well selected, make sure to treat yourself. We ordered the Blue Ribbon Special for our main entree which will serve 2-4 people and was more than enough food for all three of us. The tuna and yellowtail sashimi were bordering on euphoric, even the mackerel was better than any I had prior. There is also a cool surprise with the special which I won't give away but is unique to Blue Ribbon.
This was one of the best meals I have ever had, I was scant in my description because I would hate to give it all away. Be prepared to spend a little money, but what else is worth your money? Good food should be priced at a premium and you will not be disappointed. Next time we go, we are going for the Omikase menu...and we can't wait!
Special Place for a Special Meal – Manhattan's Blue Ribbon Sushi is at the top of my sushi list for that island, and the Brooklyn branch is just as great. The sushi is simply superb - perfect fish, expert rice and fascinating unique creations. I love the small and diverse sake list. A great spot for a special dinner. If you want comparably great sushi, in a bright and crowded room, and at a considerably lower cost, walk over to Flatbush and Park Pl. and try Geido.
Worth a visit – I went here with the gf. The chicken teriyaki and sushi were both very good. Their signature dish, the Blue Ribbon roll (1/2 lobster, shiso & black caviar) was disappointing. It was dry and flavorless. The wait staff was competent but not spectacular. Empty dishes were removed promptly but they forgot one of our dishes and never once came by to ask if we wanted anything else on the menu or to refill our water glasses. The décor and ambiance was pleasing in a Soho/ Greenwich village sort of way, mostly exposed brick and polished wood. Overall, I thought this was a nice restaurant but a step or two shy of greatness.
Awesome! – Love this place ever since we found it! Keep up the good work!
Two thumbs up!
THE place for sushi in Brooklyn. – Yes, it's expensive. But worth it. I'm not a high roller by any stretch, but I never have a problem dropping the money at BRS because it's always excellent. Maybe I've just gotten lucky with seating, but I've never had more than a ten minute wait. Everything here...just wonderful. The food most of all, but the drinks, the decor, the service...everything is top-notch. Certainly not a place most of us can afford to go on a regular basis, but for me, when I have something to celebrate, this place (along with Blue Ribbon next door) is always at the top of the list.
told all my friends – I went on a lark with a friend who had just flown into town. We sat at the bar, and we decided to tell the chef to do as he pleased...I was so surprised. Both of us I would say are sushi lovers and have had it on both coasts and abroad, and I can say I have grown up eating it...this was a special experience, and truly delicious.
It was expensive mind you, but the fish was fantastic. I could go into detail but I'd rather not spoil it. I left there eager to go back...
it's about the fish... – This is the best sushi/sashimi I have had in the city. I have been coming here for over a year now and all I can say is that the fish, the service and the atmosphere are excellent. If you are looking for sushi definitely come here. Save some pennies, find a date, sit at the sushi bar, have a box (or 2 or 3) of sake, pick an amount of money you want to spend on sushi and order the omakase - chef's choice. The presentation alone is worth it.
Besides that, the place looks great with its dim lighting and brick and wood and the staff and chefs have been consistently friendly, welcoming and wonderful.
Remember...sushi is about the fish and I have yet to find better, fresher fish than I have here.
Worth every penny and every second.
Try the dragon roll! – I love this place. I have heard how good it is but this is NYC, there's good sushi everywhere. I was pleasantly surprised to see that even better was available in this little Brooklyn locale. I didnt' try the saki but there was a wide variety. A little expensive on the alcohol but the prices of everything else were worth it. Try the pork dumplings for an appertizer. The miso soup come with the miso paste on the side so you can decide how much to put in. And the rolls are fantastic. The dragon roll is a must try.
Outstanding sushi draws diners from all over Brooklyn to this understated Park Slope spot. – The Scene
Blue Ribbon addresses Brooklyn's top-notch sushi deficit with a handsomely appointed outpost that, like next door's Blue Ribbon Brooklyn, is superior to its Manhattan sibling. The tastefully understated decor is heavy on dark, solid wood and most importantly, space. Aside from the large, glowing sushi bar, the seating is all booths, and they're set well-apart, too. Service is friendly and efficient.
Staples are mostly well-executed, but it's the more original dishes that set this place apart, like the Dynamite, a delicious broiled sea scallop, mushroom and smelt roe appetizer presented in an open shell with a golden-brown crust. Maki rolls feature luxe confections like a juicy eel, avocado and radish roll, and the Blue Ribbon, a divine combination of lobster, shisho and black caviar. Sushi and sashimi range from good to excellent--don't miss the melting, buttery o-toro special (bluefin tuna belly) if it's available.
