The atmosphere here was very casual from the dish towels as napkins to the wait staff but the food served here is incredible. The meat on the ribs just fell off the bone asn the variety of BBQ sauces at your table were excellent. It's all you could ever expect from this type of restaurant. I'll be back and I'll bring others.

Not Danny Meyer's Typical... And the food was basically average if you are a true BBQ fan. But the appetizers were very good, well thought out and well presented. Then there is the bar. Ladies and Gentleman, this place lives for the bar. The Bourbon and Single Malt selection is second to NONE. The wine list is far above average, the service was attentive and professional if dressed shabby and the atmosphere was very comfortable. I liked it.

The place looks like typical bar restaurant, has dark interior, wooden tables and chairs. Good crowd. Menu is limited, def not for vegetarians. Service is typical college student waiter/waitress. I had the shrimp salad, it was good.

I read all the reviews and i just don't get it. This place has nothing to do with real bbq. the food is sub par at best. The only thing this place has going for it is Danny Meyer's reputation. There is much better to be had...

Great barbaque, ribs fell right off the bone and the buffalo wings were great. Place had a great feel to it and had a true bbq feel in the atmosphere. Recommend highly.

I've tried almost all of the "famous" rib places in NYC, from the low end (Dallas BBQ) to the high end (Virgil's) and NONE of them come close to Blue Smoke (Waterfront Ale is second, I think) when it comes to ribs. They have several varieties, after trying each of them multiple times, the KC ribs rate as the best. Meaty and cooked just right every time. My only two complaints: (1) when you order takeout, the food seems to be of a lower standard. I've done takeout twice (eating with 20 minutes of leaving the restaurant) and both times the ribs seems less meaty and less tasty. (2) They dont have brown gravy for the mashed potatoes. As for the previous reviewers who say the food is not as good as advertised, maybe they were referring to the non-rib dishes, which I have not bothered to try yet. And as for it being overpriced...? It's Manhattan. Show me another rib place of equal quality for a lower price and I'll go there. I've searched and searched, and found ... none.

This was the best BBQ I had ever had. The Food was very tasty the service was good also. The atmosphere was great. I loved the fact that they placed metal tin cans on each table to dicarded bones in. The buffalo wings are a must try...
