The dinner was wonderful. The staff were very attentive. We celebrated our anniversary. I said the dinner was our celebration and we needed no fanfare. They set the table with a handwritten card wishing us happy anniversary. So sweet! They provided details of each course. The food was delicious. Even my picky 20 yr old was excited. With the end of our dinner, they discretely brought an anniversary cake including candle. Such a wonderful dinner. Exceeded my high expectations!

Service was incredibly slow. Took 15 minutes for me to get a cocktail I ordered sitting down. Took 10-15 minutes between courses. Dinner for two took almost 3 hours.

It was a very disappointing dinner. The entries were just regular vegetables that could be found in almost any supermarket in Europe. Regarding the pieces of liver foie covered by chocolate, the were just a medium-low quality foie which does not match the reputation of the restaurant. The main dishes (beef meat and beetroot) were just not savory. Despite the fact the beef was smooth, it was cold and did not have enough flavour. The beetroot was just a funny joke, it was supposed to be grilled but it was just a tiny piece of burnt beetroot. No hints of smokey flavour at all, it just tasted bad. It is hard to understand how can a chef taste that and think that ir is fine to serve it.
The sweet corn dish was ok and the desserts were good but not surprising considering the high expectations.

Finally, the sliced apple was just great. It is surprising to consider an apple the best product of a menu of $109.

Service was very good and the ambience was nice too.

This restaurant does not deserve at all the reputation and critics it has.

Blue Hill is an amazing destination for foodies looking for a place to go destination. Go for the tasting menu, for sure, be prepared to shell out but many amazing delights will come your way! The NYC location doesn’t have the same magic as upstate, but still an amazing meal and evening.

Over-priced for the service and quality of the dishes. The restaurant manager was very friendly, however, didn’t engage him until closer to the end when they attempted to get the order correct. The waitress was essentially non-existent during the evening, at times going 25 minutes without seeing or hearing from her (to include the time between getting the menu and taking the order (and we were only the fourth couple in the restaurant at the time with numerous staff on hand hanging out in the bar area).

The food was okay. Nothing amazing. The restaurant and food at their Westchester location was phenomenal (albeit 10 years ago when we went to the Westchester location).

Lastly, the dress attire on the website advises elegant casual; however, several patrons were in jeans and sneakers.

While on a tour of NY colleges, we couldn’t pass the opportunity to dine at Dan Barber’s famous spot, not only because of its proximity to our hotel my favorite dish, the retired dairy cow, is no exception. The wine pairing was very interesting, with positions from rather unique locations, like Sicily or even Czechia (!), all marvelously complementing the food. Service was absolutely perfect, with everyone being attentive, but not overwhelming, and cordial, but not too cozy or chummy. Great experience overall.

Excellent attentive staff and very creative food experience. We had ten courses, many of which were surprises! Dishes are nuanced with sauces and herbs etc ... not really for the the steak and potatoes type of eater. They made excellent accommodations for my pescatarian wife. We came a way very satisfied and would return there with our next visit to New York.

We dined here for our first year anniversary. It was amazing! The entire staff made us feel so welcome and made our anniversary very special with little touches like a note, dessert with a candle. The ambiance of the restaurant was so cute and romantic. The food was amazing, every dish was so unique and yummy. The cocktails were also so unique. We loved the zero food waste concept and how creative all the dishes were.

Our server was marvelous in every way. Beautiful surroundings and atmosphere. But won't ever eat there again. Tiny, extremely expensive portions and unfortunately for me I found the tastes and textures of almost everything to be completely not my cup of tea and several dishes were downright unpleasant. We ordered lots of different dishes - from regular menu, tasting menu. Intriguing concept but rather pretentious if you haven't drunk the Kool-Aid. Felt as if the menu descriptions and the plating tried too hard to be cutting edge/unique. Some were interesting but overall really contrived.

Had been wanting to try this unassuming quiet gem and finally made on my birthday! First, we cannot over-emphasize the very attentive service and excellent communication among the team of servers regarding pencils needs. Questions were answered patiently and thoroughly and the staff smoothly responded to our seating and drink requests. We chose the four course offerings and were very satisfied- so fresh and subtly prepared, each course connecting well with the previous, timing impeccable.
Will definitely return!

Fantastic place. My wife and I celebrated her b-day here - we saw the Netflix special about Stone Barns a couple of years ago and were excited to try the Manhattan location. We had the Farmer's Feast (there is an extended version, we had that). It ended up being 7-9 courses, and top to bottom they were excellent. I was a chef for many years and eating here left me impressed with not only the freshness, flavors, and creativity in the dishes, but in the overall experience. The staff was engaged, knowledgeable,
and genuine. Our server Simone was great, as was Grace and the Sous, who came out to our table (wife's birthday and I sometimes drop that I am in the business.... Hey it never hurts).

Blue Hill is a class act, incredible food, and the staff are professionals. Go
