    Great food.

    Do not believe what you read. The ribs here are awesome. I suggest the ribs sampler (for one or two depending on who you go with). The beef ribs were my favorite. The mac & cheese and corn bread are also great. Try to get here around 6 and you will have a nice peaceful dinner. Any time after that and the place gets pretty crowded.

    not bad, but probably wouldn't go back

    Waitstaff very friendly and helpful. Nice atmostphere. Ribs - They were not dried out, as others said...they were a nice sized portion (1/2 rack, 5 big ribs)...but, nothing special...maybe it was the sauce, which didn't do it for me. And for the cost, there should have been at least one side dish included. Sweet Potato fries very good, beans could have been cooked more and they would have been excellent, pasta in mac & cheese could have been cooked more (but the sauce was quite yummy). Desserts (sampler) very very good, but tiny potions on 3 out of the 5, hard to share for group of 4. Hubbys brisket sandwich was pretty small (again, no side).

    Nothing Special

    I went to Blue Smoke last night for the first time, even though I have never heard better than average reviews. The one thing I can confirm is that the ribs are not good. Knowing that everyone told me not to get them, we ordered a side of the beef ribs, and they may have been the worst I ever had. It is funny that a BBQ place doesnt have good ribs. Other than that, I actually thought everything else was pretty good. I highly recommend the Chipolte Wings as an appetizer. The brisket was pretty solid as well. I would give this place another shot, just be sure not to order the beef ribs, and you will be fine

    Not impressed

    The ribs and pulled pork were dry and chewy. However, the side dishes were great: mashed potatoes, slaw, and mac/cheese. The service, as with every other Danny Meyer restaurant, was fantastic, but it really didn't make the meal better. I want to believe that I'd give it another try and get the burger the next time, but honestly don't think I want to risk getting another plate of tough meat.

    It really is good just not the ribs

    Those criticizing the ribs aren't wrong the ribs are oversmoked and kind of dry. However, most other items at Blue Smoke are very good to excellent. The brisket, for example, benefits greatly from the place's tendency to oversmoke the meats. It too can be a little on the dry side, but I like the smokey, full flavor of the brisket and a bit of BBQ sauce takes care of any dryness issues. Burgers are excellent, as are most sides. And the Mac-n-cheese is the best I've head in NYC. I like the stainless steel look of the interior and the staff is friendly, eager to get everything right and all-around great.

    extremely disappointed

    my date told me this was the place to go when i said i like bbq. i had heard of it. but the reality was so disappointing, i can't imagine how it got its rep as a good bbq place. we went for lunch. the half rack of ribs was so small, it looked like a stingy quarter rack. some bones had barely any meat, the others had a few bites. i was actually still hungry when i finished. also, the ribs were dry and too peppery. definately not worth the money, or the time.

    A wonderful surprise!

    Our first night in two years and what a wonderful experience! While the food was good, the service was spectacular! From the front desk to the water people, everyone was wonderful and that added to the whole experience! Would we come back? In a flash. It was so memorable ! Thanks, guys!
