    Poor Service

    Avoid. This place has the worst service in New York City. I will be amazed if it is still around in a year. The ribs are good, but not good enough to warrant coming back. Management is amateur at best, rude and unqualified.

    30 dollars and no barbecue sauce!

    Take out with no barbecue sauce......30 dollars to eat 2 dry sandwiches and they couldnt even throw in ANY barbecue sauce.....how cheap and lame is that?

    Finally, real barbeque in Manhattan!!!!

    I've eaten at Blue Smoke twice and I have to say that finally, someone in NYC got it right. Dallas Jones, Dallas BBQ...whatever, wherever else in New York, it just wasn't real barbeque. I've been to Dallas, I go to Nashville frequently and I have to tell you that the pork ribs (baby backs, I think) equalled what I've had in Nashville. That surprised me...and then I tasted the beef ribs. I have to tell you, I've never had anything so good in my life. The best ribs I've ever tasted, and that's going some, considering that my first stop on every business trip to Nashville has always been Jack's Barbeque. The drinks at Blue Smoke, the salad, sides...well worth the wait...AND the waiting time spent at the bar.

    I have gone to this restaurant twice--always at someone else's urging. It has been awful both times. The food and the service are competing for which can be worse. The first time I went, the waiter spilled a drink all over me, and that didn't shake him out of his trance. The food is second rate bbq, if that. They will never see me again,

    Blue Smoke is great. Not only was our food amazing, but the service was exceptional. The waiter we had was extremely attentive and friendly. The ribs were so delicious (although they could use a bit more barbecue sauce) and tender and the smoked chicken basically fell off the bone. The biscuits were just the right mix of salty and sweet and the sweet potato fries, while a bit thick, were delicious as well. The price is totally reasonable for the amount of food we ate, and I've never been so full in my life! I highly recommend the blood orange margarita......to compliment the meal.

    Very good.... just not great!!!

    To start, the food is quite good, however with all the hype, it's hard to live up to those standards. The atmosphere is casually cool and the waitstaff efficient. I enjoyed Blue Smoke each time I've been there and so has the company I've brought. I will visit again!!
