I went for brunch . A bread basket was 8 bucks and another 8 for a refill . Portions so small as not to be believed . Food preparation not special , not great . Much cachet - no substance . Wait staff indiffernt and slow. They could not describe why the preparation special. To their credit it was not. Would not return no matter what you should stay away.

I took my fiance to Blue Hill for his birthday. We had a 9:00 pm reservation and were not seated until 9:45 pm. Many people were in the same position and were pretty upset. However, the service, food, and atmosphere entirely made up for this. The grounds are beautiful and the dining room is extremely warm and charming. Our waitress was wonderful and incredibly apologetic about the delay. The courses we ordered were delicous and extremely fresh. I would mention a specific dish except that they were all excellent - I'm sure whatever you have will be as well. At the end of the evening, we realized they comped our desert and several drinks because of the delay. We thought this was generous and very much appreciated it. We will certainly return and highly recommend it to others. On a side note: as reservations are difficult, keep in mind, you can sit at the bar and order from the full menu.

Recognizing the idealistic vision of a real farm to table, we went, expecting a working farm with a fabulous organic restaurant on premises. Don't get me wrong, we enjoyed the food and presentation - it was top notch. However, the dining room and service are strangely formal, even by NYC standards. You get the sense that everything about this experience is completely controlled - it sure didn't smell like a working farm! We needed a couple of delicious house cocktails to relax enough to enjoy our dinner. Portions are not large - most adults will want to order the menu with "3 savory" dishes, plus dessert. So if you don't mind a bit of superciliousness with your expensive dinner, by all means go!
