The food was awesome and the staff were the nicest. They make you want to come back. I am quite particular with my restaurants and I just left and am thinking of booking again in a few weeks. Not pretentious at all. The special grilled avocado had a great spice and you should definitely get if offered. The chocolate chip bread pudding was amazing and I didn't even like bread pudding before tonight. You won't regret a visit here.

My husband and I had an absolutely wonderful dinner awhile ago at Blue Ribbon and decided to return when in the neighborhood recently. We were especially impressed once again with the polite staff, the warm and welcoming atmosphere, but most especially, the outstanding food...we ordered salmon, steak and split a delicious creme brulee. Highly recommend this jewel of a place!

Our family came into town and we decided to try this place for brunch. When we got there, we were shocked by the egregiously rude behavior of the management. They wanted to seat us in the basement and after we politely asked to be seated upstairs, they made sarcastic comments and scolded us for not having made a reservation, even though there were tables available. One person from our party arrived 10 minutes late and in the meantime, a manager came by to make a snide comment about having an empty seat. We spent $130 there and the management seemed to go out of their way to make us feel unwlecome and uncomfortable. Was the french toast worth it? Absolutely not. On the other hand, the waitstaff was terrific. This city has way too many great restaurants for anyone to need to put up with poor customer service. We won't be going back.

Went on a friend's recommendation and absolutely loved the place. He cautioned that on a Saturday night at around 7 PM we would have to wait for no less than 45 mins (no reservations) but that Blue Ribbon also has a wine bar across the street where you can wait until a table comes free. Had a drink at the smallish bar in the restaurant and only had to wait 20 mins or so. Food was high quality but on the expensive side - highly suggest getting a few small appetizers (we got hummus and mushroom ravioli) and combine with a fine selection of cheese and cured meats. I've had friendlier waiters - he seemed a bit bother by our decision to not order something a bit more expensive - but overall a great experience in the West Village. Cool vibe.

I am a huge fan of dining alone and there really isn't any place in the west village that quite compares to Blue Ribbon Bakery. They always have something on their menu that I want, although my personal lunchtime favorite is the matzoh ball soup and the tuna sandwich, and everything is always made with love and fresh ingredients. If you're like me and enjoy dining alone, try and sit in one of the booths by the window so you can quietly judge the humans walking by...maybe you'll see someone famous...maybe you'll see your aunt in the midst of an afternoon rendezvous with a lover half her age and who happens to also be her female student...maybe you'll see Sarah Jessica Parker...i'm not saying that these things have happened to me, per se, however they could happen, and why not while eating a superdank meal at Blue Ribbon?

Back before Blue Ribbon, the bodega there had two things you could buy: canned milk and cigarettes. The spot must have had an angel to bless it because Blue Ribbon is now the best of the best. No matter what mood I'm in, there's always something to satisfy me. Friendly, professional staff; the bread and beer alone is enough to send me home happy. I'm telling you but please...don't tell anyone else about Blue Ribbon Bakery.
