I started out with an appetizer of corn soup, which was okay, but nothing special. The manager saw that I had only finished half of my bowl. He came over and profusely apologized, asking if there was any other appetizer I would like instead. I said no, and he came backa minute later to tell me that since I did not like the soup, it was taken off of our bill. You just don't get service like that anymore in NYC! The atmosphere here is charming; very elegant, very modern. The food, aside from my soup, was outstanding, and for the quality of the food, the price really isn't too bad. I would highly highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a great dining experience.

This is my first review of any restaurant even though I have been eating out in NY for 7 years. I must say the service at Blue Hill was THE BEST SERVICE I have ever experienced at a restaurant in New York and I’ve been to many of the finest (Per Se, Jean George, etc..). As a smoker, I do enjoy stealing away between courses for a cigarette. I know this is not politically correct and is often inappropriate when having dinner at such a lovely restaurant, however, not once did I feel ostracized or forced to move along with my dinner experience. With that said, the ambiance was incredibly comfortable and the food was delicious. The crab salad was all crab with a refreshing taste that left me satisfied and looking forward to my main course selection. My entrée was the duck; the best duck I’ve ever had…melt in your mouth, no need for a knife because it was so tender. I highly recommend Blue Hill as a full dining EXPERIENCE.

Not one dish was anything more than good. The foie gras was tasty, but not exceptional- Tocqueville's is superior. The cod over warm uni was salty, and the uni was too fishy. The chocolate bread pudding was a good dessert, but certainly not noteworthy. I've heard the Westchester restaurant is far superior, but I don't know if I'd be willing to take the chance.

The foie gras was the best i have ever had. The only negative would have to be the after dinner drinks. Too small of selection.

We went for a birthday celebration and we couldn't have been more pleased with our selection. The atmosphere was classy and intimate. The food was specatular and so delicious! The freshest ingredients and each dish was better than the one before it. Definitely try the chocolate bread pudding for dessert! I can't wait to go back!

Enjoyed every minute -one of the nicest restaurant experiences we've ever had. Exciting, innovative treatments of the true flavors of the highest-quality ingredients. Excellent wines by the glass. Lovely, helpful service. Not cheap, but exceptional value. Can't wait to go back.

We had an exceptional meal without feeling overstuffed. The food was outstanding in quality- all the ingredients were clearly top of the line. The smoked shrimp on their green gaspacho was so good- I could have had a big bowl of that for dinner...but then I got my wild salmon on roasted corn and was glad I did. The cheese course is not to be ignored....and then there is the chocolate bread pudding that has warm caramel sauce inside and cherry ice cream on top - not to be missed. Not cheap- but well worth it. Nice attentive and unrushed service.
