Brasserie with a beautiful bar, wood accents, warm atmosphere, friendly/great service... oysters served right - finally! The steak was fantastic - cooked and sliced perfectly... soft like butter... The homemade bread was a nice touch... Good value as well!

My wife and friend had the BBQ Ribs appetizer which they said were good. I had the Pork Chop on a bed of kale. Chop was cooked to perfection and the Kale was very tasty. Our waiter was very helpful and knew his wines and let me sample beers to help in my selection. The Brisket that was touted as... More

While the wait staff is very helpful, the menu is limited and VERY expensive - $30+ entrees. We stuck with the burgers, which were very tasty, that were in the $18 range. Not sure that they understand their market - the night I was there Blue Ribbon was pretty empty but the surrounding restaurants were packed….they need to rethink their... More

Delightful neighborhood restaurant. A varied menu including raw clams and oysters. They can even serve the picky eater. I chose the fried chicken and not until several bites did I get the spicy heat. I was delicious. Check out the bread pudding for desert!

What an awesome place. Started at the bar where the bartender expertly made our cocktails. The dinner was superb. Oysters and escargot appetizers perfect. Paella and hake mains were great. Service was impeccable.

I had one evening in Brooklyn and did a quick search for an interesting restaurant. I was so glad I chose this one. I had wanted to try the bone marrow but the marmalade that comes with it was even better. Also recommend the steak tartare. Wish I could return for some seafood but was only there for a day....

My colleagues and I decided to try a new restaurant to dine after work every week and this week was Blue Ribbon. We had an amazing time and the food was delicious. Our waiter was "on point"! He was very attentive to our table and checked on us to make sure we were pleased and so did the manager. It's... More

The best time is definitely during the week and early (as early as 5:30-6:00PM) to avoid the crowds. We celebrated my husband's B'Day a few days ago. What a treat - as usual! Yes do start with Oysters..!! followed by the Paella. Another royal treat! (Always need a "doggie bag) because the serving is huge. Their wine list is outstanding... More

A Park Slope institution since 2001, Blue Ribbon Brooklyn is a lively night spot and family-friendly version of the SoHo original Blue Ribbon. Our menu is much the same as at our SoHo flagship, including fresh seafood shucked and shelled to order from a long oyster bar, as well as our special Brooklyn take on many Blue Ribbon classics such as matzo ball soup, hummus, fried chicken and paella. Our atmosphere is casual, comfortable and relaxed. We feature a full bar with select draft and bottle beers, creative cocktails and an extensive wine list.
