Blue Ribbon Brasserie's cozy yet bustling dining room and friendly bar have served neighborhood regulars, culinary professionals and celebrity chefs for over 26 years.

Whether you are in the mood for a Burger and a Pint of Beer, Rack of Lamb and a bottle of Burgundy, or Oysters on the Half Shell and Champagne, Blue Ribbon Brasserie will welcome you from 4pm until 4am, seven nights a week. The menu truly has something for everyone including; soups, salads, burgers, steaks, chops, seafood and raw bar with vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options available.

Our youthful culinary vision first sprang to life downtown in SoHo in 1992, and in the years since has become a New York institution. We are proud that our flagship continues to be a local favorite even as it has blossomed into an international culinary destination, known especially for our late-night dining scene.

I’ve always heard great things about Blue Ribbon, but the experience far exceeded our expectations! Dinner was delicious, food was prepared to perfection. It was honestly one of (if not the best) restaurant meal I’ve ever had. I only wish we stayed for dessert. I won’t make that mistake a second time!

I have been wanting to go to Blue Ribbon for a long time, and it did not disappoint. It was lively on a Wednesday night. The service was friendly and attentive, and the food was incredible. The oysters we had were very fresh and flavorful. I asked for horseradish as a garnish, and it appeared to be freshly shaved. The bone marrow with oxtail marmalade is worth a visit in itself. Both of the mains we tried (the hangar steak and the friend chicken) were excellent.

A true gem! We saw this restaurant featured on Flay List (Bobby Flay) right before a trip to NY. It was exactly what we were looking for - great service, amazing food, and a bustling non pretentious vibe. It was so good this will be a go to for us every time we come

Everything single thing we ordered, even as simple as steamed clams was absolutely delicious! I also highly recommend the steak tartare and the bone marrow. You will not be disappointed.

It was my 3rd time there and I loved it. We went last year for first time and this past weekend we went 2 night after our night activities. Great dishes and wine list as well. Very friendly and fun staff. Would definitely make it a tradition and part of our future visits to the city .

Blue Ribbon is a great place to go to those seeking great food, great service, and a fun vibe. It is not the place to go if you want a quiet dinner. They play upbeat music, but not so loud that you can't carry on a conversation with your dining partners. We can't wait to go back!

Love this restaurant...every time! The food, service and ambience is always on point - and, they were responsive to my seating request (which often does not happen) even during peak time. The consistency and quality plus the cool vibe makes this one of the best restaurants downtown. I will return again and again.

Solid, creative dining. Staff Uber professional and caring. Our waiter Aiden was fantastic. Any question we had about the menu or food he graciously answered or cane back with the answer. Classic NYC spot. Everything we had was delicious and presented very nicely.

Service was attentive. There were 5 of us but we fit fine without crowding. Loved the foie gras and the lamb was terrific too. Wine was excellent and my cucumber gin tequila cocktail was amazing. A little loud but everyone could hear and were having a great time. Will definitely come back.

Most importantly the food was amazing. We tried the fried oysters, paella, striped bass and the fried chicken.

The ambiance was just ok. I was told that it wasn't anything to write home about, but that the food was the reason you go. The main issue they have is there are too many tables in that small space. We constantly got bumped by so many people as they were trying to get to and from their tables...and get this about half the people dining had backpacks with them. So not only did they bump you accidentally, but their backpack did also. That was the worst part about our experience. We would have stayed and ordered more drinks and food, but we were uncomfortable, so we left. I would propose visit again, but only if I sat in one of the booths on the right side of the restaurant.

Only drawback is the noise-level in the small room. Tip: get there before 6:30pm.
