I really wanted this to be a special meal. I had heard such great things. The food is extremly fresh and thats it. Bland is an understatement, even the freshes radish just picked still needs a little salt. I advised the staff it was a birthday dinner, and they forgot. The tables are on top of each other. I was so dissapointed I actually got mad.

This is a solid restaurant in a sublime, classic atmosphere. The food is very good(bit skimpy, though) for what you'd expect with these prices. Overall, I recommend this restaurant. The bar seating is nice as well.

ok, i get the concept that this is a superb place, good service .... blah blah blah. but sitting there for 2.5 hours, i left hungry, sleepy, and totally drained. food serving is a joke. a fish entree is two teeny tiny cubes of fish that's a quarter of the size of a regular dining knife. swiss chard with ravioli: three hair-sized strips that require a microscope to see. scallop: only one small piece of scallop at the center of a giant plate that's 90% empty. if you are the kind that cherishes the atmosphere, maybe it's good. but it's definitely not worth the money. we spent more than $200 and were entirely disappointed. in the end we were hungry and had to go to another restaurant for some real food.

Of all of the restaurants in New York, the President and the First Lady chose to eat here when they flew up to see a Broadway show. I think that speaks wonders about this place.

We went to Blue Hill to celebrate a special anniversary. Upon arrival, the hosts were very gracious and personable. At first, we didn’t grasp the vibe of a *romantic restaurant* which was why we chose this place for our dinner. Our waiter, Neal, was beyond fantastic! He showed interest in our story of how we met and truly did everything he could to make our dinner special. The meal began with delicious hot breadsticks and the best sweet soft butter. We were then given a sampling of fresh vegetables to entice our palates. We had the braised octopus appetizer, which they split into two for us. This was exquisite and cooked to perfection. The portion size was also rather generous. For our entrees, I had the Hake and my fiancé had the Lamb, both were better than we were expecting and we ate every morsel on the plate. We also had a side of marinated beets, which were so sweet and tasty. For dessert, we had the chocolate bread pudding, which is a cross between a brownie, molten lava chocolate cake, and bread pudding. It came with ice cream and was delicious paired with the best dessert wine. After all the delicious food and wine, the restaurant earned its fame of a romantic date spot.

My boyfriend and I had the tasting menu for dinner on March 31 at 7pm. We arrived a bit earlier than our reservation but we were still seated promptly. I loved every single dish in our 5 course tasting menu. I found the dishes to be extremely fresh, inventive, and tasty. I would highly recommend this restaurant. It is a bit pricy but for a 5 course tasting menu + 3 different amuse bouche that was complimentary, I found it was worth it. I’m looking forward to going back!
