American brasserie at its best. Everyone will find something to great to choose in the menu that offers all the American classics. Spent a good time with excellent service. Don't hesitate to share a dessert, they are really yummy.

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...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.

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.
