Had a fantastic meal here before we went downstairs to jazz standard (equally as good but I'll review that elsewhere). Great bustling vibe with really nice staff who are passionate about the menu and enthusiastic about their jobs (happy to explain anything on the menu you are unsure about. No rushing & they let you make a night of your... More

Had a business event in NYC and capped the evening at Blue Smoke. Drinks and dinner - group menu. Starters were warm BBQ potato chips, fall green salad and smoked Alabama white wings. The salad was the winner here but everything was good. Main course options were 7 pepper beef brisket, pulled pork shoulder and backyard chicken BBQ. Sides were... More

Stopped in for a quick bite during a business trip in November. It was really great. The place smelled like a good smoke house should. The service was good, very friendly and helpful. The Afro Wit beer was surprisingly good. The Brisket was also very good as well. The top meat that we had that night though was the cheddar... More

We had reservations for 8:00, but got there a little early, so we sat at the bar. Great drinks with great service from the bartender. They called us for our table around 8:10 and we were greeted by a very friendly hostess. Our waiter came over to us almost immediately and took a drink and appetizer order. We had the... More

Stumbled upon this restaurant by chance when me and my girlfriend wanted to get 2 drinks. It s a proper American restaurant. Everything is super nice and waitresses/waiters are very friendly. Only problem is that we paid above 40 dollars for 2 glasses of wine ... INSANE even for New York

The restaurant has a bluesy feel to it. The servers in plaid shirts and jeans are really enthusiastic about the menu, and very warm and friendly. I ordered the pork ribs, greens, and mac and cheese. The ribs were fine, as was the mac and cheese but the greens were too salty. Lacked the robust flavor of authentic southern barbeque.... More

I'm a real foodie and on our recent 1st trip to NY this was one place I wanted to visit and I was not disappointed. We had been walking all day and got there about 2pm for a late lunch. The service was brilliant, friendly and efficient. I had the pulled pork, mac n cheese, bbq beans OMG it was... More
