Took a client to Blue Ribbon Sushi yesterday and she is still raving about it. Sushi and sashimi plates were a piece of art. Truly delicious, the tuna melted in your mouth. The sea urchin and the eel were the freshest! This is the sort of place one returns to again and again. Service is great as well. Highly recommend it.

Good sushi!

The sushi here is good, fish is fresh, prices are decent.
It can be a little pricey but I think is OK for the area. Service was great, super friendly and attentive.
Would definitely stop back in here.

So So

Heard many great things about this place. It's suppose to be one of the better places for sushi. I have been here twice for a date and both time I was disappointed. I am a big sushi lover, out of the two meals I have had, I have only had 1 piece of fish that I have loved each time.

Love this place. Have been eating at BR Sushi for over 10 years. You must try the Green Tea creme brulee. The cold boxed saki. yum! The sushi FRESH!

Delicious and super fresh

I had heard such great reviews about Blue Ribbon Sushi that I decided I needed to check it out for myself. It most certainly lives up to all of its hype. The fish is super fresh and delicious. I would 100 % recommend Blue Ribbon Sushi!

Bad customer service

I've been to many sushi places and blue ribbon did not live up to the hype. This small cozy sushi hut doesn't take reservations (which, in NYC I hear is a sign that the restaurant is really good). The wait on a Tuesday night for 2 people was about 20 minutes. The waiter tried to be really helpful but it didn't help when he forgot to serve our appetizers. Our main course arrived and when asked about the appetizers the waiter apologized and sent them after we were done with our dinner. (no charge of course, but I'd like to have my dumplings before the sushi, not when I'm getting ready to eat desert). The sushi was good, the rolls were nothing special. The eel was fresh and so was the shrimp, but again- nothing special. I've had sushi that tastes exactly the same way in other restaurants and I don't think I would make a special trip out to Blue Ribbon again. not worth the wait, or the money for that matter.

Hi, We're Frauds.

Blue Ribbon Sushi successfully appeals to the commonly inept sushi palette of American diners. It caters to unrefined tastes with menu items such as their insulting 21 dollar Blue Ribbon lobster roll. The thoughtlessly mundane and bland combination of rice, seaweed, lobster, caviar, and shiso is one where the whole is, at best, only equal to the sum of its parts. Most offensive is their failure to offer proper sushi bar service (piece by piece). It must be noted, however, the fish is of the finest quality, but that only makes it that much more heartbreaking when an avid sushi eater can't get served omakase directly from the chef, but instead, only through the quality and enjoyment mitigating middle-man, the waiter. Sushi cooking ability of the chefs (by this I mean how the rice is seasoned and composed and how fish is cut) is above average, but nothing memorable. Blue Ribbon tries to get away with its lack of sushi knowledge by buying only top-quality fish but fails to present a product whose potential is maximized. If you want to spend $100/person for sushi, go sit at the sushi bar of Yasuda (traditional), Gari (innovative), or Jewel Bako (in-between).

good no more

I completely agree with some other previous reviewers' opinion. Blue Ribbon's food is undoubtedly good; Through the years, the quality hasn't changed much, but the portion definitely has. 2 years ago Omakase was 50 per person and you get an extravagant and exquisite selection of sashimi and nigiri of lobster, caviar, toro, etc; last time I went there, I had to confirm with the waitress, ' is there more coming?' because the portion has decreased to barely enough for an appetizer. There is nothing wrong with raising the price of their food as the ingredient get more and more expensive, but to sacrifice portion for that reason is just off-putting. I have given up on the restaurant ever since. Customers who ordered omakase (tasting menu) don't care so much about how much they spend, but how well they get fed. It's a shame how good restaurants eventually end up becoming rip-offs.

Pass on this for infinitely better sushi anywhere else

Over-priced, rude wait-staff, just not worth it. Forget that everyone is practically sitting on top of everyone else, the place smells of bad fish. A hallmark of bad sushi. If you can afford it, I highly recommend Sushi Yasuda (best in the city). If not, any one of a million places will give you a better experience. As for this place, skip it.

YUM , amazing sushi!

We got some recommendation and decided to give this place a try, there is no sign outside but I noticed the chef's hard at work on the first level of the building. - every dish was incredible, from the soup , amazing fresh sushi and a lovely romantic spot for dinner. I cant wait to go back.
