If you're looking for giant pieces of cheap sushi, or crazy spicy rolls, or other western interpretations of sushi to fill you up, then you should not waste your money here. But if you're a sushi connoisseur , who likes your sushi traditional and on the smaller size (you know, bite size so it actually fits in your mouth!) and a variety of more 'exotic ' fresh fish that goes beyond spicy tuna, eel, and salmon. This is the place for you...and that's what you'll pay a little extra for. Enjoy the cohada, sardines, japanese uni, excellent ikura, a variety of clams, and other seasonal specials! For better sushi, you'll have to go into the city and go to Sushi Yasuda.. and pay twice as much...

We ordered take-out --- too much money and nothing special about it -- jpan or mura sushi is much better and cheaper. Why so much fuzz about this place -- what is so special about. Next time you want a positive review, be the best -- which you are not.

Easily the best sushi in the Slope and some of the best in NYC. Definitely pricey, but worth treating yourself every once in a while to the consistently fresh fish and fantastic chefs. One of the only sushi joints where I let the chefs make whatever they want and never leave unhappy.

We used to love this restaurant--our favorite sushi in Brooklyn--fresh and delicious. We hadn't been there in about a year and ordered delivery for our New Year's Day meal. What a disappointment! The sushi was messily rolled and smelled fishy, and the crab roll (expensive0 was simply inedible, as was the seaweed salad. We called to complain and were told that they were not responsible for the salad because they do not make it but get it from elsewhere--excuse me?! The manager also argued with me about my complaint, saying that the salad was always the same and that the crab was the same because it was "from a can!" So, they do not use fresh ingredients, and the argument is that this excuses them from being responsible for the quality of the food. Unbelievable! We will never deal with them again, and you shouldn't either!

We are moving to the area and decided to branch out from our usual sushi spot (Ki Sushi on Smith which is terrific) and try Blue Ribbon. Honestly it was a totally disappointing meal. The seaweed salad was fine, but the portion was 4 bites worth. The sushi was average at best. Small pieces of flavorless fish. The spicy roll was small, flimsy looking and filled with the extras but not the fish. I dunno, was just a disappointment to walk out on a friday night spending $50 each of average-at-best food. The chefs (we sat at the bar) were stoic and the place had no vibe. Definite thumbs down.

They were very accomodating but I agree with many of the below reviews. The food was not very good, and 2 rolls, 4 shots of Sake and one dessert came to over 100 bucks after tip. That is just too much, even though the Green Tea Creme Brule is one of the best desserts I've ever had in NY.

We went to blue ribbon expecting a lot. After a crazy wait, I have to say that we were disappointed. The food was not good and the service was poor. We spent a lot of money and were still hungry.
