All the top Sushi Houses of NYC get their fish via Fultons Market (tues. & thur.) or overseas from Japan, so freshness is pretty much the same at all the top spots. Blue Ribbon shines in variety: Old school sushi/sashimi, new school rolls, entrees, and sake galore. At any time you'll find 60 or so variety of fish, and if you are alone or on a date, this super cool SOHO mainstay will not disappoint.

What a wonderful place! I live in Seattle, wanted to give our daughter-in-law a special birthday gift, her favorite place for sushi is Blue Ribbon Sushi, called them and they delivered her and our son a wonderful, delicious sushi dinner. They don't even deliver, but did it for her birthday. Our daught-in-law called and raved how great the food was. Thank you Blue Ribbon Sushi! A very memorable birthday. They even labeled all the different sushi for them. Great service and best food!

All the sushi and sashimi is fresh fresh fresh! The only bummer is the wait at peak times. But order with care and the meal may be quite reasonable, though it is so tempting to splurge once you're in your seat. Nice saki list to accompany your meal.

Not your "everyday" sushi, Blue Ribbon should be reserved for when you want the very best. This is what sushi is supposed to be... full of delicate flavor and texture. Check out the sake menu for some great choices.

Creative sushi selection makes this Soho place a treat with lots of different specialty rolls. A bit cramped but worth it

Damn, the rolls at BRS are out of this world. Thank goodness someone finally developed an imagination when it comes to sushi and rolls and made them delicious at the same time. Melt in your mouth fish, wide range of saki makes this a top 5 NYC sushi haven. Small as walnut shell seating, ok decor and no reservations is annoying. Prices are sky high and beprepared to wait....loooooooong lines and wait times. Can you say "2 hour wait" on weekend nights?

We make a point of going early as it gets crowded (no reservations) - though you can wander around Soho after giving your cell phone number to the host. The place is small, not the most comfortable with a small sushi bar area as well. Service can be uneven, sometimes slow, though pleasant enough. We used to marvel at the quality of the fish, but a recent dinner there was disappointing - with things seeming not so fresh and not as elaborately presented. Having said that, I'd give it another try as the selection of spicy rolls had been great, their miso soup is special (miso served on the side to be mixed in), there's a variety of stuff on the menu and you can eat well for about $45 or so, depending on what you're drinking. It's a bit more ambitious than the typical sushi restaurant and when it's good, it's very good.

Blue Ribbon has some of the freshest fish around. The tuna is excellent. A little pricey depending on what you order, but worth it. Some interesting menu items.

the freshest of fish. the service was great, the staff was knowledgable, great crowd, celebrities to the left and right of you and most importantly great food

Cries of "kaki fry" go up when the name "Blue Ribbon Sushi" is mentioned. Yummy fried oyster maki is just one of the delights to be had at this Soho sushi mainstay. Go for the "Blue Ribbon Roll", half of a lobster topped with Ossetra caviar. Spicy Tuna Roll is another stand out. A great sake selection (warm or yes, by the box), beer selection and tasty appetizers - I never pass up a chance to order their "mixed japanese pickles" - make this my favorite sushi place. Be prepared to wait for a table especially on the weekends, give them your cell number and walk down the street for a drink while you wait, it's worth it!
